The location of Hotel Primavera is perfect. It is in the centre of the city and if you want use metro, Majakovskaja metro station is not far away. Also the Moskovskaja railway station is near. Very good shopping facilities are just few blocks away (f.ex. department store Stockmann) .
The hotel is so called mini hotel with 16 rooms on the 4th floor of the building. The entrance is little bit difficult to find. I saw the hotel sign at Nevsky prospect but but when I went there, I noticed that actually the entrance door to the hotel is not below the sign but about 20 meters away from that.
The hotel is located at 4th floor. The corridor of the building is neither welcoming nor clean. But when you take the elevator to the 4th floor atmosphere is totally different. Because there are only 16 rooms in this mini hotel there were no queue and my registration went very easily and quickly. The personnel were very friendly and they have good English skills.
My room was spacious and decoration was ok. There were double bed, a flat TV, mini bar, shower and toilet. Also, there were heat pump air conditioning unit in every rooms. In the hotel there were fast and free wifi (you can have username and password for that from reception). Fitted carpet was dirty and caused a little bit problems for allergic person. The breakfast room was very small and the breakfast was actually very basic (coffee, tea, juice, yogurt, bread, cheese, cold cuts and some sliced fruits). During the night time the entrance door to the Nevsky Prospect was locked and there were a guard watching and opening the door.
The hotel can do the registration behalf of you (price 150 rub). Nowadays I’m not sure if you have to do that at all if your travel duration is less than 7 days (at the hotel they said you have to do that anyway) . But nobody wasn’t interested to have my registration paper at the airport when I left country.
Two small minus things: 1) Thin room door: You can hear all the noise from the corridor to the room. But I have to say that there were not any noise problems in the hotel because you hardly see anybody coming or going. The only place you met other people was at the breakfast room. 2) Communication before my journey via e-mail: I send an e-mail before my journey just for asking about my room reservation and if it is possible get the room without fitted carpet. I didn’t get any answer to my message. Why they are keeping e-mail address at their website if they don’t bother to answer to the messages ?
Price of this hotel was reasonable comparing to the other hotels at St. Petersburg. I had a nice stay in this hotel and I can recommend hotel also to the other passengers. The town itself was nice and all the major sights were at the walking distance.
