Reviewed 8 December 2011

We stayed here for 1 night with a group of friends from Russia and South America, and found this hotel really charming, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The decor is exquisite and the staff could not be more helpful or accomodating. The location is good the rooms were a good size and the beds very comfortable.
Nice breakfast and very good location for visiting the sights
All in all a great experience

The hotel has around 20 rooms, it has a very cozy feeling, clean, friendly, every detail is taken care of, the girls at the reception are very helpful, breakfast is delicious, with many things to choose from. The first night I had a hard time sleeping, because the the heating was too high, but we turned it down, and the following nights were perfect. It is a 20 min walk to the Hermitage, the subway is a 15 min walk, which can be a lot if you're tired, but you better be ready to walk in St Petersburg if you're a tourist!!!! Absolutly positive experience!!

This hotel was very professionally run and in an excellent location for tourists. You simply have a 10 minute walk over the river and you are at the Hermitage and other tourist attractions. The reception staff all spoke English and were helpful providing us with maps, directions and shopping ideas. The room was large and very clean with a comfortable bed, practical desk and WiiFi for the computer. The bathroom was very clean, a good size and provided toiletries. Breakfast which was included in the room cost was excellent and the crystal, mirrored dining room was a Russian experience. One of our best experiences in northern Europe. 10/10

The assistance this place gave us in preparing for our trip to Russia (visas, invites, overnight trains to Moscow) made the choice to stay here worthwhile on its own.
This being said the hotel was great. Clean, well located (although a 20 minute walk to the Hermitage and Nevsky Prospect), great breakfast and so many tips and help. Thank you!

This small hotel was great as a base for our group of 10 friends seeking to explore St. Petersburg. Our room was relatively small for 3 people but convenient. Clean bathroom, safe, large wardrobe were plus. Nice decoration, though a bit outdated. The reception was very helpful and efficient to answer all our enquiries and assist us in booking restaurants etc. This is not a central hotel but we found no problem in walking towards the inner city in October. All in all this is a very decent hotel and highly recommended for low-medium budget travellers.

We selected this hotel based on previous reviews and were not disappointed in any way. Every person on staff we met was courteous, friendly and helpful. The room was clean as a whistle, well equipped and properly maintained. There is room safe, adequate closet, coffee and tea, a couple of complimentary water bottles each day, sufficient outlets, good wireless internet reception and a comfy bed. The bathroom is well lit, plenty of water pressure and a good hot shower. The location was just fine with us. We faced east, on the second floor and slept with the window open. Yes, there is traffic below. This is a city hotel. But, it diminished greatly at night, was not objectionably, and apparently we considered the sounds to be part of the atmosphere. It's not like there are horns honking or trucks chugging by. There are cars and an occasional streetcar. We could have shut the window, but did not. The breakfast was just fine. Plenty of choices – ham, cheese, eggs, yogurt, cereal, vegetables, toast. You would leave hungry only by choice. We enjoyed the short walks across the bridge to central St. Petersburg. I didn't time it, but suppose if you don't stop to enjoy anything along the way, it is a ten or fifteen minute journey to the Hermitage entrance. We would very definitely stay at The Tradition Hotel were we to return to St. Petersburg and would quickly recommend it to our best friends.

Room Tip: We faced east toward the Fortress. If there are rooms facing south, you would see the river.

An amazing hotel with an excellent location. The hotel is located 15 mins walk to the Hermitage and 10 mins walk to the Fortress. The rooms are classically designed and a good size. Considering the location and style of the hotel the hotel was great value for money.

Room Tip: Suggest having room over looking the courtyard.
