Delighted with our choice A review of Petro Palace Hotel
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.
The standard room was good, though not exceptional. However, it was spotlessly clean with a minibar and many little extras in the bathroom. The hotel boasts a fitness club, but I have to say that we were too busy getting our exercise walking the city streets, so cannot comment.
The staff were extremely helpful, and arranged visa support and registration free of charge (after an initial communication problem - a telephone call is probably best), and transport to and from the airport at a cost of 1400 roubles each way - money well spent.
We are both reasonably fit 50 somethings, and were able to walk everywhere from the hotel, and feel that we saw so much more this way. I would like to dispell any safety concerns people may have about St Petersburg. It is a wonderful city - go for it.
In all we had a wonderful time and our hotel choice certainly added to our holiday.
