Radisson Sonya Hotel
Ranked #59 of 357 Hotels in St. Petersburg
Reviewed 27 August 2014

The Sonya Radisson was the perfect choice for us: great location and price for what we got: a large buffet breakfast, a quiet room (they even moved us up to business class for no extra charge, maybe because we were staying for seven nights), wonderful staff who were responsive and accommodating, and a comfortable room. Free wifi and an excellent Turkish his and her steam rooms. Complimentary water bottles and extra ones if you wanted, every night. Even a complimentary copy of Crime and Punishment in the Dostoevsky-themed hotel!

My only suggestion would be: mattress and pillows were way too soft--ended up nursing a bit of a back ache--would have liked firmer bedding overall. And as many have said in other reviews, the shower, while strong and with plenty of hot water, does leak some. But would stay there again and encourage others to book as well--

Was there with the family and the things that irritated most of all were:
- level of noise in the midnight especially in weekend
- level of room serves
- level of all room equipment maintenance
Will be looking for another place to stay next time

This is a really nice hotel. I only stayed one night, but I must say that I like it a lot. Business class room are cosy and quiet. They have chosen an different design that is cool.
Breakfast was fresh and nice, there was everything one needed.
Location is also good. Central but a little bit to the side...

So for the price... Yes!!

Stayed: April 2014

Dear Patric B,
Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback about your stay at Radisson Sonya.
We look forward to hosting you on another occasion.
Glad you enjoyed the design elements. When they built the hotel 5 years ago the interior design team really strived to incorporate many of the themes throughout Dostoevsky's book Crime and Punishment to give a real Russian feel.
Kind regards,
Shirlynn Lim, General Manager

We celebrated wedding right across the street and spent the night in Radisson Sonya after. Everything was great! We received a hand-written congratulation note, nice touch. Room has a tome of Dostoevsky to read before sleep ;) Some questionable choices in bathroom design - sink is on the opposite wall from mirror and there is a glass wall between bathroom and room, still, beautiful room with a coffee machine and good breakfast, as always in Radisson hotels,

Room Tip: There are quotes from "Crime and punishment" outside the doors

The hotel is near the river and some restaurants as well as near Spar and Azbuka supermarkets. Staff is friendly. The 3 main issues we had were no english TV kids channel (comes in handy after long museum visits) and a very poor extra bed with broken planks (as I found later out) and the breakfast area was a bit too busy. It looked like there was a group staying. It would have been better if they had directed this group to the next door room rather than few independent guests. The style of rooms is very nice. They have connecting doors. They forgot to clean one of the rooms one day for some reason.

We stayed for 3 nights. Had friendly staff willing to help. An amazing breakfast with pretty much anything you wanted. It also had beds that were so comfortable it felt like sleeping on clouds. Would recommend.

Room Tip: We had an internal room and it was very quiet at night.

This hotel is a bit off the beaten track (meaning it is not on Nevsky prospect). However, as far as the transport is concerned, you are just a couple of minutes walk from the metro, and getting a taxi here in the rush hour is a bit easier than on Nevsky. A bit dark interior (as it should be when inspired by Dostoevsky's Raskolnikov), but all in all good value for money. Good breakfast too.
