Recent guest reviews

was a cozy place.rooms,lobby,restaurant...all had a sens of"make your self home". staffs were friendly.delicious meals.every thing was in right may be silly but i really fancied my bed ,with nice pillows and blanket it made me feel like i'm in honey n cream. just some steps to metro staition.there's a nice way to neva river (it was not much of a walk to me cause the architecture had a different sense).food centers were near these i mean olympia was so convenient.

Comfy hotel, close to centre but enough removed to be quiet. Rooms are comfortable and just big enough. Atmosphere is laid back but more efficient than most Russian hotels. Breakfast is hearty, Finnish style, but can be busy at peak times.

This was a very good hotel, the staff was professional and spoke english. The room eiere spacious and the bed comfortable. Everything was clean. The breakfast was very good with something for every taste. The location was ok, but we has to walk a lot to come to the main attractions. Also possible to take the metro, but some walking distances.

Everything worked fine and reception and restaurant staff were professional. Special thanks to the cleaning staff. Rooms were tidy and cleaned carefully every day. Unfortunately I also have a but: however, I didn't like the pub staff watching their videos on their mobile phones very load. It disturbed everybody and everything. Otherwise I like the idea that hotel pub is open until very late.

Nice hotel, excellent service except transfer (were not able to provide proper transfer from airport as per request) and friendly staff, very suitable to arrange conferences, seminars, meetings. Hotel restaurant Fransmanni offers very delicious food against reasonable cost. Subway station is only few minutes from the hotel. It takes 20 minutes from airport to the hotel by taxi.

I can't say anything bad about this hotel. It's close to everything, yet it's a quiet place. The rooms were spacious and the beds were soft. The personnel were very nice and helpful and made our trip unforgetful!

Coming from a bad hotel in Moscow this was a nice surprise. Once you have mastered using the lift you find comfortable,well furnished rooms and a dining room that provides a good breakfast. Dinner was good too with a reasonable variety in the salads, mains and desserts. Not enough sitting space in the downstairs lounge and there seemed to be wasted space on the next floor which could have been used. A busy tourist hotel used by aircrew but it does its job well.

Sokos is located very close to metro station Tekhnologichesky Institut. There are nice cafes in the area of the hotel including a local branch of Stolle. The room was very clean. Our room did not have tea making facilities. We got hot water from the kitchen. Reception can be hard to get on the phone. They facilitated luggage storage on or departure day. Breakfast buffet included a wide variety. Wifi was good. Relaxed interior in the bar. Our room was not turned over daily. Busy hotel with tour groups staying.

Excellent location for visiting St Petersburg, close to metro and all places of interest. Decor very good, food excellent with a large selection to suit all nationalities, staff very friendly. Ideal hotel to stay for a short for a short break.

Due to the fact that the meeting was planned to be held during the high season and the hotels availability in St. Petersburg was law I had to choose the above hotel for our meeting. Unfortuntely from the first day of our stay the hotel's staff showed their unwelcoming attitude, no sign of hospitality or flexibility to accomodate essential meeting arrangements. I have organized meetings in variuos coutries, however it was for the first time that the hotel staff were presenting themselves and their opinions to be more important than the client's.
