“Good hotel with fair price”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Our friend founded this apartment on TripAdvisor and we are so glad he did it! The location is 101% ideal – simply near the city centre (it took us adout 15 minutes to get to the Hermitage by foot).
The apartments (we lived in the room number 11) are roomy, clean and very comfortable with air conditioning, tv and free Wi-Fi. The entire hotel is small, comfy and bright (especially western part of the Arkadia).
We were extremely impressed by the welcome and the service. The staff in the hotel was very polite, cheerful and overly helpful in any time (sometimes it even made me felt uncomfortable).
We had a wonderful time in Saint Petersburg and no doubt, it was right decision to stay at Arkadia hotel during our trip.

We chose the Arkadia after reading the TripAdvisor ratings. It's not what I expected. It's a very small hotel (20 rooms or less) located inside a courtyard of apartments. The hotel is walking distance from most sights, and they will send a taxi to pick you up at the airport if you call ahead (which is probably a good idea since no other cabbie would be able to find it tucked away). The reception was extremely small, with one couch. 2 parties in reception became crowded quickly. Reception was friendly, helpful, and spoke English. The restaurant had about 6 tables, and we never used it, let alone saw anyone there either. My room was small, typical European; relatively comfortable with the essentials. There was no iron or laundry service, but water was complimentary and there was a minibar. I wasn't able to figure out how to plug the water pot in, since the cord didnt reach any outlets. The TV was very small with no English channels. no central a/c, although there's a unit inside the room that I'm not sure worked. European keys (manual keys you leave at the desk), so be sure and lock the room on the way out.

Room Tip: Get a room that's 'odd numbered'. There are only 2 floors. The even numbers can be distu...

I stayed at this hotel with my two sons for four nights. Everything was great (except the second day, when there were some problems with the Internet and I couldn’t check my mailbox).
I have been to St. Petersburg before so I knew what to expect. It’s amazing city with dramatic history and hundreds places for sightseeing. My boys liked the Saint Petersburg very much too!
Hotel Arkadia isn’t large, but in spite of this, it’s very cozy and comfortable.
All staff members were very attentive and helpful.
Our “comfort” room was spacious and bright. Everything in bath (shampoo, soap, towels, slippers, hairdryer) were ok too.
Location of the hotel is very comfortable and it’s easy to get to the city centre by taxi, but we preferred to go by foot – it’s very pleasant to walk through the Saint Petersburg.
We would high recommend Arkadia for everyone, who want to stay in Saint Petersburg.

Spent a superb three days in Saint Petersburg. We selected Arkadia hotel based on previous reviews on tripadviso and were not disappointed in any way – everything was great!
Services was excellent and they make you feel very relax, and making sure that you have a wonderful holiday. All staff is English-speaking and totally helpful.
The room was spacious, clean and quiet. In our standart room there were king-size bed, the air conditioner, a TV-set, a mini-refrigerator, free Wi-Fi, a table, an armchair and a tea set:) Nice and clean bathroom.
Location is quiet and pretty. It’s close to the city centre and the Hermitage.
The breakfast in the restaurant attached to the hotel was very good too.
Thanks to Arkadia, we’ll be back!))

The Arkadia Hotel is a small (fewer than 20 rooms) facility in a quiet courtyard on the Moika Embankment. The solidly-constructed building controls sound transmission to insure peace and quiet. All mechanical systems work perfectly, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. A friendly staff is available to offer advice or make arrangements. The hotel serves an excellent breakfast in an attractive, ground floor dining room.

The location is ideal. The hotel is a three minute walk from St. Isaac's Square, an eight minute walk from the Hermitage, and two minutes from Nevskiy Prospekt. The neighborhood comprises some of St. Petersburg's handsomest late-Imperial apartment and commercial buildings, now undergoing restoration to their original condition.

Our family have just returned after holidays in St. Petersburg. We Stayed in Arkadia Hotel for a week.
Location. The hotel is ideally located in the city. Close to everything I wanted to see during my staying in St. Petersburg. It is only several minute walk to the Hermitage, St. Isaac's Cathedraland, the Nevskij Prospect and other main tourist sights.
Rooms. Spacious and clean enough. Sophisticated interiors. Room was equipped with everything tourists want after active day of sightseeing: TVset and free WiFi :) Comfortable beds and big bathroom.
Meal. Tasty breakfasts included in the price of room (especially we liked Russian pancakes with honey). Concerning lunch and dinner mostly every day we had them somewhere in the city. But anyway there is a good restraint in the hotel.
Service. Staff was helpful with excellent English. We got all necessary information from the girl at the reception desk.
So I can definitely recommend this hotel to other tourists.

We stayed in Arkadia hotel during our Russian trip. This hotel impressed us with nice decorations, great location and spacey rooms.
Arkadia surprises at every step. Friendly and helpful staff with complete acknowledge every time you face them. Very quiet rooms, comfortable beds, good bathrooms, speedy wi-fi, TV with English language channels, and few minutes from the Hermitage.
This hotel is one of the best we saw for the three weeks in Russia.
