Sky Hotel2.5 out of 5.0

Hotel is on best location you can have, walking distance to main landmarks. I do not know why some people wrote that there is no elevator - elevator exists, it is just going from mid-floor, not from the ground. Staff is really friendly, but their English is not that good. They might not know all what you asked them, but they do try to help you out. Hotel is on the 6th and 7th floor of the building, follow the instructions they share how to get there. Rooms are very small, if you like to keep your luggage open, you will not have enough space to move around. All is very clean. Only bad thing is breakfast, it was really not tasteful, small portions. Even thought it was included in price, we skipped it. There are a lot of nice places around the hotel where you can have a nice and cheap breakfast.
There is much to love about this hotel. And what you don’t love might just be quirky enough to make you smile anyway. Stayed for 8 nights and you can’t beat the location for easy walking access to many main sights. Staff is young and friendly and speaks English well enough. Room was spacious and quiet (from outdoor noise) but not well sound-proofed. That wasn’t a problem for me as guests are asked and expected to be courteous. In- room safe and mini fridge were handy. Loved the bathroom nightlight on a sensor and got used to the water system (shower is not a highlight even with the rain faucet). Bed was so comfy and linens were soft. A cloth robe and disposable slippers made evening room lounging comfortable after a full day of sightseeing. Breakfast was a choice from about 7 pre-arranged menus and I sampled all of them. Usually sat on the terrace and was served by hotel staff eager to make my day start right! Not gourmet but tasty and filling. There are also snacks and beverages for purchase. Entry to hotel is through 2 locked gate/doors with a buzzer system. I really liked staying here and I would return…just know that if you have demanding standards, Sky Hotel will probably not suit. And that’s too bad because it’s a great place to experience.
Stayed with my mom and had hard time right on arrival - they have No elevator, so I had hard time climbing up with my huge suitcase... Room was extremely small... breakfast is bad and also limited. Also very noisy- you can hear everything at night.
We stay there for 4 nights. We get the room with shared bath and our friends get the room with private bath. Both number was really clean, nice, fresh and modern. even the shared bath was really nice, allways clean and comfort. We got all we need there. Nice view aswell from small nice and small place to eat. Breakfast was really basic. Administrators are really nice, help us to find some places. All was perfect!
We stayed here for a few nights while travelling around Russia, we are on a budget so wanted something fairly cheaper but not a hostel. Sky Hotel is really well placed, excellent bars, restaurant links and underground access. It’s also close to most of the tourist attractions. Staff are friendly and helped with everything, couldn’t fault them. We thoroughly recommend it! Staff 5/5 Room 4.5/5 Breakfast 3/5 Location: 5/5 We stayed in room 72 and it was nice and quiet, only drawback was the shower drain smelled a little. Oh and breakfast isn’t the best.
Stayed in a twin room with a friend. The rooms and bathroom/toilet were kept very clean. The breakfast was quite filling and staff were quite accommodating when we could eat breakfast when we had an early start to try and travel out of the City. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Staff also spoke English. Convenient location for Saint-Petersburg's main tourist attractions as it is just off Nevsky Prospekt. Avtovo Metro Station and Moskovsky Railway Station are only a few stops down the line for excursions out of the city.
Positive: location of hotel is very good, especially if you are there as a tourist, 200 meters to Nevskij prospekt, (Main Street). Beds are ok and staff is mostly nice. Negative: Rooms are small, as is the toilet, breakfast is heated up with a microwave... And didn't taste so good either, but if you don't need more than this, is probably all right there, but my advice is, you could find something way better for the same price.
We stayed in a twin room, the room was very spacious with a fridge. The bathroom was very clean. Wifi was fast. Breakfast was served upstairs were there was a roof terrace. For breakfast you could choose two options from a list of choices. Staff were friendly. The hotel was located just off Nevsky Prospect which makes it an idea location for site seeing. The Winter palace was a 5 minute walk. I would definitely stay here again.
The location was absolutely perfect for walking to the major sights, the staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, and the rooms were clean! We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.
A comfortable hotel in a great location, for a very reasonable price. 10-40 minute walks to most important locations and metro stations close. Also, the building where the hotel is located in is very cool and interesting.
