Based on the great reviews in trip advisor, we booked rooms at Tradition Hotel during our trip to St. Petersburg. This small hotel was quiet and clean, nice but not luxurious. The staff were supremely helpful and courteous. It is just across the Neva River from the Hermitage and the Nevsky district, only about a 15-20 minute walk. BUT the primary bridge was closed for construction our first day there, which meant we had to pay for expensive taxis (20+ euros) to take us via longer routes to and from the other side of the river. The next day thankfully the bridge was open, though it closed late that evening ( along with virtually all the other bridges simultaneously) to allow large boats to pass. So we found ourselves stranded for an hour plus away from our hotel in the wee morning hours. If you stay here, make sure the bridge will be open. And pay attention to the schedules for the bridges before planning a late night out.
