My daughter gets up early again to go work out. Geeezzz. Don't know how she has the will power and the stamina but she is tired later today too. We both slept some better last night but still not wonderful. After she left, I reset the alarm and had another hour almost but some weird dream which of course I do not remember now. Oh well.

Finally in Russia again

A travel blog entry by carpefeline


My daughter's birthday. Happy, happy thoughts but we are going to need them because neither of us slept worth a log. It was too hot most of the night so both of us were on the outside of any covers and sleeping on top of the duvets. My daughter heard the noise more than me but both of us only dozed off and on all night. Sometimes she wanted to poke …

... architecturally flawless. St. Isaac’s is the largest domed cathedral on the planet, and as far as Russian Orthodox churches go, The Church of our Savior of the Spilled Blood is extraordinary.

Shopping for Matryoshka dolls, Faberge eggs and lacquer box mementos is fun... Vanessa and Sue never missed a shopping ...

St Petersburg, Russia: Venice of the North

A travel blog entry by samber

This is a top pick!

From Russia with love - what a beautiful city! We've been in St Petersburg now since Wednesday morning and have loved every minute of it. We've caught shuttle buses, navigated our way on the metro (which makes London's underground look a filthy mess), struggled with taxi drivers who don't speak a word of English, cruised the canals by boat and walked for miles. A few things we've noticed along the way: 1. People are friendly and the vast majority of women are beautiful, ...

    the room was good and they tried to fix the safe which was broken and then offered to move us but we were good. the breakfast wasn't so much. their room service menu said "if you don't see it on the menu, try us, we like a challenge" but when my daughter called to ask for some boiled vegetables, they just told her no, they couldn't do that. so don't offer!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Dostoevsky Hotel St. Petersburg

    Dirty rooms, unfriendly staff.


    What a disappointing hotel.

    The Dostoevsky is obviously huge but the rooms are the smallest they could possibly be. The furniture, the decoration and all the fittings are painfully cheap and showing signs of their age.

    Worst of all, look under the beds or move the tables and the rooms are just plain dirty.

    The staff constantly look tired and bored and seem to be employed to stand and stare at you. Something you get used to in Russia but could do without in your hotel. The bar staff were particularly unfriendly.

    Breakfast is a distinctly low budget buffet.

    Overall, you get the impression that the staff just don't want to be there. Not recommended.

    OK - not much more


    This hotel seems to polarise the views of reviewers on this site. We found it OK, but not much more. The room was small but comfortable enough. However, there was no ventilation and the windows were sealed - very very stuffy.

    The location is pretty good - right next to a metro station, and a short walk from Nevsky Prospekt. It's a long (about 3km) walk from the winter palace area, but quite pleasant on a sunny day in September.

    The restaurant was pretty hopeless, and the staff generally didn't seem terribly interested.

    It wasn't bad, but I would recommend trying somewhere else first.

    Very good Hotel


    We have a great time in this hotel, the room are very good and the staff are very nices and very helfull. The hotel have a shopping mall where they have a Super market. the Dostoevsky Restaurant have a very good food

    we really enjoy our stay there.

    Delightful, friendly and welcoming


    I have just returned from 4 nights at the Dostoevsky Hotel in St Petersburg. I very nearly had second thoughts about staying there (my first visit to the city) after reading the negative review written in August 2004. Thank goodness I went ahead with my booking. The hotel is situated just off the Nevsky Prospect - not within easy walking distance of the centre but still in a good location. We were a party of 4 (including 2 elderly ladies) and travelled everywhere by taxi. However, more adventurous travellers would have no trouble with busses/metro as both are very close by and frequent. The shopping centre above which the hotel is built is very smart and extremely convenient having an excellent supermarket which is open very long hours. The hotel itself was everything we could have wished for and more. The staff were delightful, all young, speaking very good English and incredibly helpful. They made sure we had everything we needed, booked ballet tickets, taxis and found out details of tours etc. The rooms, although small, had all that was required. They were clean and fresh. The beds were comfortable and we looked over the centre courtyard (not concreted but prettily laid out with trees in pots and swirls of different coloured stones). The window opened in two ways giving either a small or large amount of fresh air. The room was hot to begin with but as there was a temperature control in the room this was simply switched right down to a temperature to suit ourselves. It is a good idea to take your own hairdryer ( lots of plug sockets available) as they are not in the room but only available on request and then removed. The bathroom, although small, was cleverly designed with spacious corner shower and, again, smart and clean. The first night we had a delicious meal in the restaurant. We also really enjoyed the breakfast each day. The buffet was laid out with various bread and rolls, fresh fruit, cereal, salads, yoghurt, smoked salmon, herring, cheese, cold meats, cooked breakfasts also on offer, delicious pastries, fruit juice, various teas and coffee. It really set us up for the day.

    Downtown, modern rooms; great friendly service


    I have previously visited St Petersburg and had the misfortune to stay at the infamous old style soviet type, The Hotel Moscow - believe me this was not good and by looking at recent reports it continues to be bad.

    A real find - you will enjoy the Dostoevsy


    Six of us stayed in the Dostoevsky from 17 to 21 September. I will not write as much as I had intended as the review by the User from Bradford on 14 September really says it all.

    Dostoevesky deserves six stars for effort!


    I stayed for 4 nights at the Dostoevsky this month (September 2004) and would unhesitatingly return.

    Did these people actually STAY at this hotel?!


    If you've already booked to stay at the Dostoevsky, don't worry. I'm sure it'll be fine.

    Good Location


    The hotel is correct but be careful to take COMFORT room and not a SINGLE room (really too small).

    They charged you $12 for one hour of basic internet dsl connection in your room or in the business center, so i think its better to go to QUO VADIS internet cafe on nevsky (a lot cheaper of course !)

    The breakfast is ok but nothing really special.

    The best point for this hotel is the location (closed to nevsky and subway) and also the 24h/24 supermarket located in the same building.

    Staff is ok. Security is ok.

    A new, excellent, ***St Petersburg hotel


    My wife and I spent four nights at the Dostoevsky Hotel a fortnight ago. It is excellent. First class location just off Nevsky, very close to metro station. It is new (about six months), large pleasaant room, first class shower, good breakfast. Set within an up-market shopping centre with several nice cafes - and has its own restaurant.

    A tip: if you fly from Pulkovo 1, try the small airport duty-free shop: it sells very large bottles of whisky, etc (British blended brands) Whyte and Mackay was $49... for four and a half litres!
