Overall the stay is good. Nice location, easy to hail Uber or Yandex, can walk to Hermitage or Embankments within 30mins maybe, slow pace. Breakfast should start earlier as some of us have to leave early. Last time it was 4 minutes late and it means something if we are in a rush to go to the station to avoid rush hour.My biggest issue was the room that was far from the lift. Going through alleys to get to the room. But the room is nice, clean, and most importantly, it has a bath tub. For the elderly it is a bit of an issue since it has no handles and rubber mats. Otherwise, it's perfect. Sleeping quality is great, nice bedding, mattress, pillows.Food is nice. Ordered room service and it was good, big portion.During breakfast I had a fight with some guests since the space between tables are so small that it annoys those who are eating and those who want to pass.Morning staffs are friendly and almost everyone speaks good English. Just my check in staff, she was a trainee, and needs to smile more. Very strict with the rules, which requires us to pay RUB 200 for registration, while I said I don't need it because from what I read if that exceeds 7 working days then we need to register. But I didn't want to argue much. Just that is not nice.Concierge lady was nice, offered to book hydrofoil tickets but the price after checking was quite more expensive and the elderly concession was not given. Better to go to the pier ourselves or ordered online beforehand if you have the time.One last thing, I'd be nice if the hotel provides umbrella.

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking time to review your stay in Solo Sokos Hotel Vasilievsky. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay stay in our hotel. As you rightly noted the location is truly convenient and all the main attractions are just a short walk away. Our breakfast is served from 7 to 11am, but we are always ready to provide breakfast boxes to our guests who must leave the hotel early and in a hurry. We are happy to know that you liked our staff, we work hard to deliver great service and it means a lot to receive such feedback. I would like to note that we have rooms with both showers and baths, and we are always happy accommodate our guests according to their wishes. As to a registration support fee, the 7 day rule only applies if you are staying in a private property, however if you check into a hotel the registration is mandatory for all non-Russian citizens, and it is a common practice to include this service in all hotels in Saint Petersburg. We highly appreciate your feedback and look forward to welcoming you back during your next visit to Russia!

Kind Regards,

We stayed for a couple of nights at this hotel and the bathroom, amenities, and bed are really good quality. The decoration was also very nice, but the winner is the bed, it is comparable to Marriott Hotels' beds, so very comfortable and very soft linens, loved it!

The staff were so helpful and the concierge got us tour tickets effortlessly. On our first stay 4 years ago we thought this was a great area, well it is even better now. There is a subway only about 6 blocks away, and a pedestrian area filled with stores and restaurants only a few blocks NE of the hotel. Banks nearby (at the N corner of the street) where you can exchange USD or Euro for Rubbles. Love this hotel.

Room Tip: book an upgraded room.. it's worth the extra cost

My wife and I stayed two nights at Sokos Vasilievsky with our 72 hours visa free tour group in St. Petersburg. This hotel is very close to the Neva River, therefore you can walk to popular tourists places like St. Isaac Cathedral, the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood, the Winter Palace, Nevsky Prospect, a minimum 30-40 minute walk one-way. Morning breakfast was adequate, bed comfortable, room very quiet. Front desk staff was helpful. The hotel is a short walk to a pedestrian shopping and restaurant street, the Metro station, a main shopping district, and the bank to do currency exchange. It is a good hotel to stay in St. Petersburg.
