Recent guest reviews

Stay was great. Clean. Fast service. Perfect lovely place. Will stay again

Perfect location -- the historic property is a very short walk to St. Issac's -- and an easy stroll to the Hermitage. It is also within reach of nearby churches and the Russian Museum (you can take a taxi/ride-share service to key sites and walk back to hotel along the waterways/canals). The hotel sent an invitation letter in Russian in advance of arrival, which was helpful to persons seeking short-duration, visa-free travel via the St. Peter Ferry Line. The ferry company kept a copy of the invitation letter during the ticketing process upon initial embarkation in Tallinn.

Try the tomato soup and the chicken fillet and the beef fillet. Forget going anywhere else for food. This place is amazing. Also nice Jacuzzi and pool. You will need to relax after walking through the Heritage, St. Isaacs, and the Church of the Spilled Blood. Great hotel, okay beds, wonderful staff.

I was very imressed by staying in this hotel. Well done!

located very close to the Nevski prospect (main ave. in the city ) and St Isaac cathedral, it is very convenient. generally speaking its a great hotel for the price and with a nice swimming pool and sauna its worth of staying. for a 4 star hotel bars and restaurants could be more upscale, and interiors need bit more design and probably artworks to be at the 4star level. Interiors, furniture are all brand new which is nice, and rooms have very high ceilings, also a pleasant surprise.

The hotel is close to everything! It' within walking distance to the St. Isaac Cathedral and the Hermitage. But the room I stayed in was small. That's after I requested to change rooms twice, because I was first given a room right next to the Sky Bar which was noisy. The bathroom had the bare minimum and didn't feel like the cleanest. The swimming pool looked dirty. Also, the Wifi, which I had to pay extra for, broke down for one day. The breakfast buffet was not bad. The English level of the hotel staff was average. Overall, the hotel didn't live up to its 4-star rating, but the location was fantastic.

The Petro Palace is in the best location in St. Petersburg. It is on a nice quite street, and only a couple of block blocks from the Nevsky Prospect, main street of St. Petersburg. The concierge service was wonderful and booked us a private guided tour with Natasha for the Hermitage. One really needs a guide because the Hermitage is so massive it would take you weeks to see everything. [...] knew all the history about everything we looked at, and we wasted no time in seeing all the highlights, plus you don't have to wait in a very, very long line for tickets. The Hermitage is also only two and a half blocks from the hotel, so you can walk back there anytime you want. The hotel concierge also booked us a very enjoyable tour to Catherine's Palace. The beautiful Church of The Spilled Blood is another very close attraction, as well as many others, the souvenir stalls behind the church have the best prices in all of St. Petersburg, but if you don't have time to go there, the hotel shop wasn't so bad either as to selection and price. We also took the Hop on and Hop off Bus, which I usually really like, but in St. Petersburg, I wouldn't recommend it since it only drives you up and down Nevsky Prospect, and you can walk there easily from the hotel.The Petro Palace has really great beef stroganoff, we only ordered room service, but it was really nice. However, the restaurant has a dancing bear show if you're interested in that kind of thing. Don't get a room on the third floor because that is where their giant, laundry operation room is, and the whole third floor is always really hot and humid. The reason they call it the Petro Palace is because it was once a real palace, so some of the rooms are quite a walk from the elevator. If you spend any time in the hotel as we did, 10 days, you will notice that the hotel seems to be really two hotels in one. One side has basic decorations in the hallways and basic rooms, and the other half has stained glass windows and really nice carpet and wall decorations, which is where the suites are located. The hotel has free high speed internet service in the lobby where there is a bar you can buy drinks and some treats, if you wish, while checking your email and watching the exotic fish swimming in the tank. The Italian restaurant across the street "Da Vinci" has really great pizza, along with many traditional Russian dishes such as dumplings, which were delicious. We would recommend the Petro Palace to anyone visiting St. Petersburg. It is really a great location. As for the staff, they all spoke English, some may seem standoffish by Americans but this is Russian and not the US. They are not on vacation.

Great location. Most of the hotel staff, except for the maids, spoke good English and were very helpful. Hotel is resonably priced, clean and comfortable. Many other Americans there, along with Chinese business people, Danish and English business people.
