Radisson Sonya Hotel
Ranked #61 of 364 Hotels in St. Petersburg
Reviewed 7 May 2011

This hotel is very nicely done up. Location is good and not too touristy so you really feel you are in a Russian district. Its a 15 minute walk to Nevsy prospect or 12 minutes from the Church of the Sacred Blood, with its nice little market. The rooms are a bit smaller than we expected but are very comfortable. We were on the top floor so the ceiling was lower near the bed areas. This was not a problem and it actually felt very cozy and it had internet and tea and coffee failities. The hotel is however not very cheap but you get everything back in the service provided by the concierge. Everybody was really helpful, which of course is much needed in Russia when you don't speak the language! The even helped us booking a cab with our prefered company (cheaper) and they had no problem with that. The restaurant attached to the hotel is nice, the food was good but not formidable, but its a good place to collapse after a tiring dayt. We recommend the restaurant Ulitsa Razbitykh Fonarey at Radisheva 34 but bring a dictionary!
St Petersburg is a great city and huge, so bring your walking shoes!

Room Tip: request a room not overlooking the courtyard!

The rooms were good, and we had absolutely no complaints; except for the location.
The closest metro station is about a 10 minute walk away, and it´s at least 20 minutes to walk to Nevsky. From a St. Petersburg perspective, the walks are considered shortish--- but we estimated that we walked at least 6 miles each day. If you are not inclined to walk, stay somewhere closer to the Hermitage end of Nevsky prospect.

There is something new in St Petersburg hotel life, Radisson Sonya (former Reval Sonya). Located near Neva river and Finland station it must be first hotel where nearly everything is based on novel Crime and Punishment, restaurant menu, design, like working table in room by Dostoyevsky, and stories . A little expensive, but excellent service, interesting food and Scandinavian interior design. Staff is very young but very professional.

Spent a few night in Hotel Sonya during a seminar. I think I was the first to spend a night in the room. Clean and with a cool style of the room. Over all, well organized hotel, friendly and efficient staff, good service. To be a new hotel it seems to be well trained staff, and everything seemed to work. I would deffinatly recommend and return to Hotel Sonya.
