“Decent Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2009

OK place, neat and clean but no extras. Shampoo and shower gel come in plastic sachet, like the ones you'd get in a sample. I'd say, stay here if you get a really good deal, otherwise there are better places that are more luxurious and have better location.

The Brothers Karamazov Hotel in St. Petersburg was better than I had expected. The room was small, but it was modern and clean. The bathroom had been recently remodeled, and the shower (no bathtub) even had a hose nozzle just like the one I have at home. The hotel decorations were quaint, with old typewriters, chairs and books from Dostoyevsky’s time. The free breakfast was fully loaded with eggs, fruits, cereals, yogurt, meats, pastries, you name it. In fact, I have never seen such a lavish free hotel breakfast buffet. The staff was polite and answered questions and provided information. They even allowed us to store our luggage upon checkout, free of charge, in a locked storage beneath the stairs. The hotel is situated in a nice neighborhood not far from area attractions. There are restaurants and cafes within walking distance. The only drawback is the water, which comes out brownish due to old pipes. Other than that, The Brothers Karamazov was a perfect choice and excellent deal for the price. I would highly recommend it to people who are used to even the finest of American accoutrements.

  • Liked — free breakfast buffet
  • Disliked — brown water from old rusty pipes

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2007

I live in US now, but before I used to live in Russia, so I know some
hotels can be horrible. I went to the hotel's website and it looked nice and updated, so I went with it. When I got there I was amazed with how clean the hotel and its rooms are.

Staff is very friendly and accomodating, everyone spoke good English (and I believe German). Breakfasts were good, everything was fresh and tasty. The bar had a decent winelist and I was told their coctails were good.

Area is totally safe, still the hotel has an iron fence making it easy to load and unload while check-in and out.

The room I stayed in was nice and clean. I travel a lot in US and I have to say that I didn't feel shorthanded with anything in the room,
wireless internet, cable, minibar, etc.

I highly reccomend this hotel to anyone who visits St. Peterburg for business or personal reason.
