Original Sokos Hotel Olympia Garden

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was part of a package trip with Broadway Travel and did the job of being a base for our three days in St. Petersburg. Room was small, but what else did we expect. Large selection for breakfast, but not particularly hot as many hotel buffet are. Bar was a good place to stay if you don't want to venture out. Within walking distance of the Metro which was handy.

The hotel was lovely, the staff were very helpful, there was a good variety in the breakfast buffet and the location was excellent (a metro station just around the corner and only 2 stops to the Main Street).

Pleasant stay as usual (04th time). Only early check-in was not available(1145) even after being indicated while reservation, maybe due heavy booking. Friendly staff, cosy rooms and sumptuous breakfast.

Visited this hotel and suffered from horrendous smell of smoke all the time. Hotel promotes its great fireplace, but having fireplace is not an excuse for the whole hotel to smell like smoke. During the first day complains were made about the issue and better room was given. The second room was indeed bigger, but that didn't solve the smoke problem. The smell wasn't as bad as in the first room, but still irritating. The smell was even wors in the aisles. Totally don't recommend. There were similar complains from previous year so it seems that the Hotel is not interested in solving this problem.

The staffs are very nice and they speak English very well so there is no problem to comunicate with them. The location is quite good you can walk from underground by 10 mins. Service, room quality and others are good too. If I visit St. petersburg next time, I will chose this hotel again.

The Room is cool. Clean. Nice bad and sheets. Standard room and service. No shampoo . Enjoy the real wooden fireplace wt the bar ;) Make sure windows are not facing the road, if u r sensitive to noise at night

I loved this hotel. Lovely, classy decor with fairy lights in the restaurant and motorbikes in the reception. Great location 5 minutes from the metro. Lovely food and varied menu which catered for vegetarians and vegans and also allergies. Breakfast buffet was extensive and enjoyable. Sports bar, if you like that kind of thing! Nice, spotlessly clean spa area with a very lovely sauna and steam room. Gym with various equipment. Helpful staff who allowed me to use a computer in the reception to print out ballet tickets to ensure we didn’t miss the performance. Would love to return.

Nice location, beautiful rooms. I was pleased by red slippers :) Breakfast was very tasty, with a big choice of food. Free coffe was probably the best I've ever drunk before. When my room was quite cold and I needed additional heater, helpful staff reacted quickly and brought me it in a few minutes. By the way, bed is very comfy as well.

Stayed for 3 nights prior to New Years Eve. Located in a residential area - which was not so clean at this time of the year. Several times at night I saw males lurking in the park that surrounds 2 sides of the hotel. Not sure what they were lurking for in winter!! Nearby was a supermarket, Irish pub and a little further away more shops, restaurants and the Metro. As for the hotel, double room was adequate but not outstanding. Like other reviews - bathrooms had no amenities except soap dispensers. There was a good sports bar in the hotel serving burgers and other food as well as usual liquor and beer lines. Now the breakfast. Yes - a choice - but what quality??? The cheese and cold cuts must be the cheapest the F&B manager can buy. I saw much better standard in the local supermarkets. Fried eggs were placed under a heat lamp - which crisped the yolks. Not my way of eating fried eggs. Scrambled eggs were watery. As for the other offering of bacon, hash browns, vegetables and another dish - all 4 were under only 2 heat lamps - which meant that all four dishes were luke-warm at best. The breakfast coffee was terrible - and it was an additional 200 rubles if you wanted a cappucino!!!!!! Be careful. They charge 200 rubles per person for "visa registration". I do not know how legit this is because we never encountered such a registration fee in Moscow. Would I stay here again?? No. There are better hotels for the same price, in better areas

Liked it very much. Edinstvnnoe indicated early arrival and early departure, but the room for us before 14:00 not provided. Otherwise all happy. Thanks for the compliment in honor of his birthday. The convenient location is a big plus.
