“A good place to stay”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

I stayed in one of the so-called 'economy' rooms which was more than ample for my needs. The bed was comfortable, there was a fridge and the bathroom was clean. And they provide mosquito protection! The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, and they do registration for free. The included breakfast is very good, even with porridge which is an excellent healthy energy-sustaining food ideal for sightseeing! The location is fine too. It is not far to the metro, and if you are taking the Sapsan train to/from Moscow it is also not far to the station. I would stay in Hotel Vera again without any doubt.

Room Tip: Top floor has individual a/c (I think).

Our family of 3 stayed 3 nights in a room with 2 double beds; it was the largest room we had during our 3 week trip in Scandinavia. It was clean and comfortable with an especially nice shower. There was some street noise from having a window open, but we were able to sleep well (late May). The hotel was very responsive in helping us choose an appropriate room by email and getting us our visa paperwork quickly. We also decided to have them arrange a transfer from the Finlandia Railway station when we arrived, which went well. The staff was very helpful giving directions for public transportation, laundry, etc. The breakfasts were good, but we did not eat in the restaurant. It's a 10-15 minute walk from Nevsky Prospekt, but we liked staying a bit out of the tourist area. We also preferred the tram or bus over the subway to the main sites. Overall, a good hotel option.

Room Tip: Some rooms have AC and others screened windows; ask if you're concerned about street noise at ni...

Since I am traveling for a whole month I was looking for a good deal but not far from the center of the city. The reviews for Hotel Vera are right on the mark! The hotel is clean, the rooms are a decent size. However I would avoid room 606 which is on the top floor and you cannot climb on the bed from one side of the room (low ceiling). The breakfast buffet is typical European.....It is a very nice spread. The staff is very helpfu as well. Overall Hotel Vera is great value. But be prepared to walk. It is about 10-15 minutes from Nevskiy and the train station. The metro is nearby as well. All there is too see is further down towards the Neva on Nevskiy. It is a little bit of a walk but St Petersburg is a great city to walk and difficult to get lost. I am returning to St Petersburg at the end of my trip and will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: I would avoid room 606

Stayed here in a single room for four nights, mostly on the back of the positive tripadvisor reviews. But maybe that inflated my expectations...

The room was very small, but clean and quiet. Ate one night in the restaurant, which was not great: bare tables, bright lighting, indifferent food. The buffet breakfast was fine, but the hotel was full (for the white nights) and at 9am it was difficult to get a table: had to loiter around until tables became free. The hotel was also used by large parties coming on and off cruise ships, so not clear how they all got served together. Came back one evening and the room had not been made up, but then a lady burst in at about 7pm, which is a bit odd. Small cafe bar area on ground floor, full of people during 5-7 happy hour, but then emptied on stroke of 7.

Staff very friendly. Free wiffy.

Area a little away from the main tourist haunts, so no great choice of local restaurants (English bakery commented on by other reviewer is good though for snacks). Ten minutes walk to main station where, if you like very long escalators, you can descend to the metro.

Room Tip: Maybe avoid the singles if you have a Кошка you want to swing.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. One of the few hotels that has it all at a great price. The English speaking staff goes out of their way to help you. I forgot my camera charger, and they suggested stores where I could find one. The rooms are clean, modern and very comfortable. Great breakfast. You can't eat the location either. It's about two blocks away from Nevsky Prospekt. There is a small market one street over as well. They can arrange taxi service to the airport which is very helpful. This ensures you won't get taken advantage of. This will definitely be my hotel of choice the next time I visit St. Petersburg! Beautiful city I of course and great people!

I stayed at this hotel in early June 2012. It's an easy and short trolley or bus trip to Gostiny Dvor. The front desk was helpful and courteous. My room was comfortable and quiet. The restaurant food was so-so but within close proximity is a great litte cafe called "English Bakery," which not only has wonderful Eastern and Western European pastries, but salads, soups and sandwiches at reasonable prices, and there are plenty of little 24/7's (St. P's 7-11) around if you just want a snack or a gin and tonic in a can!

Decent hotel near the centre of St Petersburg. 10 mins walk to the Moscow train station. 30 min walk to Winter Palace - no easy transport options instead of walking.

Staff are friendly and helpful in English, rooms are nice - recommend one high up to avoid road noise.

Visa service was very quick (24 hours).

Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Go high when requesting a room.
