After spending the entire day yesterday at one of the most amazing museums in the world, I kinda thought our last day in St. Petersburg would be a bit anti-climactic. Boy was I wrong!

This morning I decided to play it safe and have breakfast in the hotel which has a very nice restaurant. It still wasn't that great, but better than …

Ancient City Of Wonders

I have been wanting to visit St. Petersburg for years! There are so many amazing things to see and I've heard so much about it that I couldn't wait to get up and start checking it all out. Of course there is no way to see everything in the three days I'll be here, but I'm determined to see as much as possible. Fortunately, Maria had been here …

Mind-blowing Blizzard of Culture

Day 2 in St. Petersburg and I was very excited because today was a big day! Finally I got to visit one of the largest and greatest museums in the world, The Hermitage. But last night I barely got any sleep because we stayed up late watching this outrageous Russian reality show where several couples are handcuffed together in the same house 24 hours …

Onward To The North!!!

The next day we arrived at the Moscow Central Train Station to board our SapSan high speed train for St. Petersburg. Trains are cool.... But way overpriced! The 4 hour trip costs $150 one way, while direct 1 hour flights only cost $100. But trains are easier to get on and off from, and if you want to get a glimpse of the countryside along the way, …

From Moscow to St. Petersburg

Yesterday we enjoyed our last real day in Moscow. We have come so far in our navigational skills and consider ourselves "Moscow Metro Experts". We found our way to the Vorobyevi Hills (we think) and later the Triumphal Arch- where we of course took a selfie. Then we saw large shiny objects and fountains and decided to check it out. This led us to Park Pobedi WWII memorials and Victory Park. (We are still confused on how they think WWII came out). Then we concluded our day walking ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Petro Palace Hotel St. Petersburg

    Excellent Hotel

    from

    We had only one review to go on when we booked the Petro Palace and some of the reviews of other hotels were quite scary.

    Delighted with our choice

    from

    I had spent much time reading reviews of hotels in St Petersburg and decided on the Petro Palace for our 4 day break. I was looking for cleanliness, location and value for money. We could not have been more pleased.

    Good, but not really 4 star

    from

    A good tourist class "3 star" hotel.

    This hotels has plusses and minuses

    from

    The hotel is in a good location. Staff try hard to please. Rooms are good sizes and towelling etc is very clean to immaculate but.....we were there on easter week-end when the hotel was busy breakfast room full and a dozen or so people waiting in line for a chance to get a table for breakfast. It was grab a table where you can, when you can and be glad of it. Dining rooms were poor and cramped table to table. Groundfloor bar is a total non starter. I don`t usually grumble but I had booked our party of four in here, the entire reception areas were a mix up of levels of flooring....several hundred people staying but only about a dozen places to sit.... pity otherwise good value for money from expedia.com. The hotel taxi driver drives like he wants to be dead as soon as possible.....fast fast. Overall the hotel is a good advert for the SAS Radisson.

    Wonderful Petro Palace

    from

    We have just returned from wonderful 4 days at the Petro Palace. There was absolutely nothing we could complain about. The de luxe room was fabulous, as were the staff, and the breakfast was great. Our towels were even changed twice a day. The location was perfect--walking distance to the Hermitage and 2 minutes from St. Isaacs. The gift shop was excellent for our souvenirs as we actually found the prices cheaper than the markets. We used Peters Walking tours and had a great guide called Mike for our first day. We found a great wee informal restaurant with great food, wine and beer at very inexpensive prices. The menu was in english so we had no problems (2nd steet on the right past the hotel with an emblem of a man with a beer and a pipe --downstairs). The Baron restaurant in the hotel also serves wonderful food though a wee bit more pricey.

    Lovely staff who take pride

    from

    We stayed at Petro Palace and the position of this hotel for sightseeing was brilliant. The room was excellent with all amenities (slippers, hairdryer,dressing gowns etc) The staff take pride in everything they do and the concierge arranged everything from theatre, taxis and a tour guide for the day. The Baron Restaurant was as good as any 5 star hotel in the u.k. if not better and they did everything they could to please. The champagne was cheap and very good quality and we had a wonderful birthday dinner. The staff on the desk spoke brilliant english and we intend to go there again next year in May or June.

    Loved it, Loved it, Loved it!!

    from

    Very nice hotel. Room was very large, very clean, everything smelled new and fresh. Linens were soft, clean and fresh. Television was large. Hotel has excellent in room high speed internet from the tv (no need to lug your laptop), which only cost $5.00 per hour to use (a bargin.) Free electronic mini safe in the room. The staff was very nice. They had free bottled water in the rooms (mini-bar was WAY overpriced, but what hotel doesn't). The hotel was within walking distance of money changer, a casino, Hermitage, resteraunts, the list goes on.

    Now for the bad, the gym, ppol, and hot tub were only free to the guests from 7-9am. Otherwise you pay $12.00 a person. Not GOOD. That is the only reason I did not give them an Excellent rating.

    Beautiful city

    from

    Just returned from,St Petersburg,Russia.What a wonderful city.Weather wasn't too good,but thats too be expected in November. Stayed at the Petro Palace hotel.Very good,clean and recently refurbished hotel.Hotel staff were excellent and all spoke English at reception.Only had breakfast there but a very good choice was available and the waitresses were very good.Bedroom was very clean an tidy,plenty of room,the only complaint being that it was too hot in there at night! The hotel is situated in an excellent position,very close to Museum and churches. i would recommend the hotel and the city to anyone thinking of visiting Russia

    A Great Hotel

    from

    I stayed 5 nights at the Petro Palace Hotel. I booked a king sized bedded room and ended up in the original part of the building overlooking the main street. The room was large, warm and overall very good. Slightly noisy from the street but not too disturbing.

    The breakfast buffet was excellent and varied.

    The rooms were serviced more than once a day to a high standard.

    The staff were attentive and their service excellent. The concierge even managed to get me tickets for a ballet performance at the Marinsky Theatre on the same Saturday evening. Well done!

    I have syated in a lot of so called 4 star hotels in London and the Petro Palace Hotel was far better then most of them.

    Happy at the Petro Palace

    from

    We were there for 4 nights with a tour group. Hotel has only been open a few months and still has some rough edges, but the room was good sized, clean, and ours had a fine shower with plenty of hot water. In addition, during one of the hottest Julys on record, the room's air conditioning was most welcome. Our biggest problem was returning in the late afternoon to find that the staff had turned up the air to its max and the room was freezing. The hotel's location is ideal, about a 10 minute walk from the Hermitage Museum and very close to the Neva River. The hotel dining room is reputed to be among the best but we only ate there for breakfast, The breakfast buffet was satisfactory but we were disappointed with the quality of the bread. We would certainly stay there again.
