We (three good friends) stayed at the Hotel Indigo as a second choice as our first choice was unavailable. This turned out to be an unexpected pleasure. Wow - what a place. Nothing but the best - no shortcuts. From the amazing organic beauty products found in the room and restaurant washrooms to ...
Our stay at Nevsky Forum was perfect. The staff were outstanding, facilities were new and clean, and it's location is ideal. It's NEXT DOOR to the Mayakovsky metro station and is in the middle of all shopping and restaurants on Nevsky Prospect. I'd stay again without hesitation!
Great value in center of St. Petersburg. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was small but very clean and efficiently laid out. Breakfast had very yummy Russian classics including cheese blintzes and pancakes.
A lovely hotel. The condition of the rooms and service was all fine. The staff are very friendly and all spoke good English. This is a great choice if you are visiting the Mariinsky, but a great choice for the entire city. Would stay again.
Room was spacious (2 bedrooms) with kitchen facilities. As we were traveling with 9 years old kid, it was very convenient to have spacious apartment like this. Metro station is 5 mins walk and palace square and all major attractions are within 15 mins by metro. Hotel is also not far from airport ...
less than 1/2 block from St. Isaac's and about 6 blks from the Hermitage Museum. ATM and Currency exchange inside hotel. Breakfast very good, they cook omelets and will bring you fresh squeezed OJ if you ask for it.
I honestly could not fault the Golden Triangle. It was situated just off the main street, Nevsky Prospekt, so was convenient for the famous attractions. The staff were pleasant & helpful, the room clean and comfortable, and a decent buffet breakfast. I would happily recommend it to anyone.
St. Petersburg is a city that lends itself to upmarket breaks. Pastel facades and its wide river embankments make the city feel more cosmopolitan and European than Moscow, yet its stately architecture and gilded domes refuse to let visitors forget the city’s Imperialist past. For a glimpse of how the Tsars lived, head to the mint-green Winter Palace. Originally built in the mid-18th century, this vast mansion was the royal residence right up until the revolution. It now houses the extensive State Hermitage Museum, a comprehensive collection of Western masterpieces, including pieces by Da Vinci and Goya.
For a bit of a treat, hunt out some of the best dance on the planet. Founded in the 1740s and having lived and thrived through many guises, the Mariinsky Ballet leads the world of classical dance. The Mariinsky Theatre, opened in 1860, remains St. Petersburg’s oldest theatre and has played host to works by Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov. The theatre is also home to the Mariinsky Opera, which even puts on opera for children at times.
It may not be as renowned as Milan or Paris in the fashion world, but St. Petersburg is a hotbed of boutique fashion. For homegrown designers, check out pieces by Leonid Alexeev and Tatyana Parfinova. Most visitors also save suitcase space for some gzhel (distinctive blue-and-white pottery) as well. It’s always worth a rummage around the vast Udelnaya Fair, where you could spend hours combing through Imperial antiques and World War II artefacts.
There are plenty of options to dine like a Tsar in St. Petersburg, from fancy restaurants re-creating the style and elegance of Imperial Russia to trendy eateries that attract a younger generation of well-heeled diners. While Nevsky Prospekt has a number of tourist-focussed eateries; places like the Literary Café, where Puskin apparently ate before the duel that ended his life in 1837, and Palkin, with its authentic elegance that reaches back to the 18th Century, are worth hunting out.
