  • Older travelers
    6.2

    the location and the kindness of the staff, the fact they speak english but particularly the willing to help you in the best way whwn confronted with problems with the rooms.

    the hotel is not 5 stars and is misguiding the client with that clasification, the standar room are almost poor and has nothing to do with a 5 star hotel. the breakfast is aboundant but the quality is not the best

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    The Reception staff were helpful as we had a room that did not have air conditioning and when we requested another room (after two nights of asking for the radiator to be turned off) we were upgraded to the Business Room. Although this room was very nice, it was very dark and did not have any natural daylight. It is very near the Station you would arrive/depart for Moscow, so convenient. Also near the main Street which leads to all the main attractions.

    There were weddings being held in the hotel every night which I could here from my room. Also the reception was cleaned at 3.30am on a couple of occasions, again this could be heard, possibily because of the location of our room. They have a hotel car but this is very expensive. The breakfast was not that spectacular a very over priced. It is a shame you cannot have the choice of Room Only.

    Good location, nice room and very good breakfast, variety and quality, even more talking that we are in Russia and 90% of hotels they dont offer this service Next time for sure I will chose again the Golden Garden Reception girls so kind and polite, with a perfect english With a reasonable percentage, 10%, they can book train tickets (Moscow) or other ones

  • Single
    7.8

    Location, cleanliness, ok 4-star hotel

    Breakfast was lacking proper bread, cheese, ham, etc. for making a proper sandwich. Also there was no normal filtered coffee available, just cappuccino & espresso based coffees. You could however order omelets and different porridge.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Good locataion - just 2 min. walk from Nevsky prospekt. Nicely decorated room

    Problem with cold water pressure and it's lack at the moment. No stairs - to get up and down from the floor it's necessary to use an elevator. One emegency exit was completely blocked with goods, the second I didn't find. This is definitely not a 5 stars hotel.

  • Couple
    4.2

    Breakfast was nice; they serve champagne and caviar too!

    It is not a 5* hotel by all means. It is not a 4* hotel either. If you travel Mon-Thu and dont stay in a room with half-window, perhaps it is a decent 3* hotel. Otherwise, Friday-Sun there is a big party on their 2nd floor all the time. Rooms above that venue hear every single thing. No airconditioner, bed squeaks, no international channels on tv and some staff speaks very poor english. You will probably be tempted by the discounts they offer for the W.end - don'T... But if you still book having this in mind, it'll be ok :)

  • Couple

    1. Staff is fluent in English 2. Guest rooms are very silent 3. Breakfast is not bad 4. Bathrooms are fantastic

    Although the hotel is near Nepsky, it is difficult to find the hotel

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The young staff were all very helpful and friendly - this made a very good first (and last) impression. They obviously enjoyed their job and spoke very good English. It's centrally located The breakfasts were excellent It is obviously well looked after and spotlessly clean

    Music through sound system was a little too loud at breakfast

  • Couple
    8.8

    Location was great and good breakfast with a good buffet selection. The building is quiet and fantastic bed.

    The temperature in the hotel was far to high. Cannot adjust the temperature in the room as it is a global system which is the same for the whole building. We had to open the Window at night! It was 27 degrees in the room while it was 5 degrees outside...

  • Single

    Location

    Rusted luxury - probably it was nice hotel 10 years ago. Can not compete with many excellent modern hotels in St Petersburg.

  • Single
    3.8

    because it was not the service of a 5 star hotel

  • Single
    7.4

    The location is quite nice, the building has been renovation. This is good too. The room is very clean and big. The waiter at the breakfast room are nice.

    It was a rainny day when the time I check in , unfortunatelly, there are No umberlla could be borrow, think hotel should spare extra enough for the guest. Also, when I ask the reception to book a taxi to go to the airport. She first try to book a expensive service which cost 2000 RUB , after I ask her how much would will that cost & how much I expect to pay for , then she said that she will book a local taxi which cost 620 RUB. I was bit disappointed with her. She may first ask me which taxi service I would prefer if that is so much different on the cost, I understand some people do not mind but at least to be informed.
