... and stressed, but even though we could speak no Russian, nor they English, assisted us in getting our paperwork right and the waved us through..I was a little let down... not a single Kalashnikov in sight.. We entered into Russia and had to now head back north to St Petersburg. The road was two way and straight. Like 100's of kilometres straight. It was the Soviet Nullabor crossing, full of trucks and cars.. We attempted to overtake where ...

... falsely) assumed that he was plotting against his father. The stories about the Romanoffs is not a particularly inspiring one. They did some great things for the arts and architecture, but it's easy to see how much money was spent under their tenure, and we can only wonder how all this money was raised. But they were also plotting against each other, and it seems there were more illegitimate children than there were within marriages. And this seems common to pretty ...
... apparently, I found myself walking the streets, knowing exactly the direction in which I was headed, third bridge down then follow the road on the right, and along there is the top ranked restaurant on trip advisor. I set off, though, without the actual address, or name. I was partly distracted by leaving at the same time as two others from my room, finding myself in my first conversation of the day. They guessed I was British and I got their nationality at the ...

Our first Honcho is Vladimir, a very enthusiastic student who clearly loves the city for its art and history. He's very good at his job and gave us some good pointers of places to visit, though failed to mention it was Russia day on our third day, so most of the museums would be ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Corinthia Hotel St. Petersburg St. Petersburg
Sauberes, modernes, irgendwie langweiliges Hotel das von westlichen Gästen viel genutzt wird. Es gibt gute Restaurantmöglichkeiten und Biergärten in der Arkade. Gute Lage und innerhalb der Anlage fühlt es sich sicher an. Wir wurden beim Einchecken vor Überfällen gewarnt und die Sicherheitsvorkehrungen sind offensichtlich. Auf dem Schreibtisch wird man eine kleine Karte vorfinden, die einen vor Mücken warnt - die sollte offensichtlicher plaziert sein und man sollte auf jeden Fall das Spray im Zimmer benutzen ... ich fand das erst nach der ersten Nacht heraus, als ich völlig zerstochen war. Wenn ich mir die toten Mücken an den Wänden und an der Decke so ansehe, dann muss ich sagen, dass ich damit wohl nicht allein bin und das dies zu dieser Jahreszeit ein Problem darstellt.
Just returned home from our Russia river cruise. My husband and I spent one night at the Corinthia Nevskij hotel before boarding our river boat. We asked the hotel to send a car to the airport to pick us up, I highly recommend it, it was great seeing our name on a sign with the driver waiting for us. When we reached the hotel we were informed that we were upgraded to a suite, with no extra cost. That was a treat, the room was spacious, beautiful, clean, and very comfortable!! The staff at the reception desk were extremely helpful and friendly. We chose not to have breakfast at the hotel, it was very expensive, we ate at a local restaurant nearby. We felt very safe taking a walk the evening we arrived in the neighborhood of the hotel. Lots of shops and restaurants, etc. I highly recommend this hotel. It was well worth the money!!!
Clean, modern, somewhat bland but well used by Western guests. Choice of restaurants and bierstube in arcade good. Good location and feels safe inside complex. Warned about muggings when we checked in and security very visible.
You will notice a very small card on the desk alerting you to mosquitoes - this should be more prominent and please do use the repellant in the room...it is only after the first night and being feasted on that I found this. Judging by the number killed on walls/ceiling by previous guests I was not alone and this is a problem at this time of year.
Stayed in Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel in St. Petersburg during March 2006.
So good we came back
This was our second visit to St Petersburg and this hotel. We arrived on my wife's birthday and waiting in our delux room was a beautifully decorated plate with chocolate and chocolates wishing her a happy birthday. Which I thought was a wonderfull touch. The staff are attentive but not intrusive. As said by others it is in the center of the city so most sights are in walking distance. The food in the hotel is of a high standard and we enjoyed the atmosphere of the bar and cafe.
There is a lot of talk about crime in this city but we found that we felt safer here than a lot of European cities infact we felt safer here than our home city of Coventry
We stayed at the Corinthia Nevskij Palace for a week
Familyof Four Great Hotel
The staff was excellent and there were more staff in all areas of the hotel than in most others hotels.The hotel and our rooms were very clean and always being cleaned. The beds were comfy. The bathroom a nice size with great pressure. The workout/spa was clean and machines all worked. The only negative was a charge $12/day or $6/hour for wireless internet. The food was excellent. We felt safe. The location was great... We will stay in Feb2006. We visited the Radisson for comparision. This hotel felt less stuffy.
First Class Hotel,Centrally Located
We stayed for 3 days at the end of October. Having read the other reviews we were expecting a first class hotel and were not disappointed.The hotel was clean well run with competant staff and fluent english at the reception (very helpful). The food was superb with a fantastic selection for breakfast. The Main restaurant was good but a little expensive. we found better value at the spanish restaurant nearby. The hotel is well situated for easy walking to the Hermitage (20 mins) & other attractions. The bedroom was spacious with queen size bed Bathroom & Shower were clean & Modern. i would have no hesitation in returning to Corinthia Palace again
Comfortable in St Pete
Clean, good service, fluent English. Rooms were to the standard of a very good quality US hotel. Not extremely luxurious but very comfortable. I spent little time in the room. Nice bar to have an iced vodka in the late evening. Restaurant was good but nothing to rave about. St Pete is a wonderful city but beware of pickpockets. Located in the heart of the city.
What can one add to the other reviews. This Hotel is Excellent it made for a very enjoyable stay in St Petersburg. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was of a high standard. We asked for a chauffer driven car to take us to the Peter Hof and they arrange one for us there and then. One of the Best Hotels we have stayed in. It may be pricey but worth every penny.
