This is a small hotel with affordable prices in a great location within walking distance from the very center of the city. What can be better?
Very pleasant staff, I appreciate their service!

Our group stayed at the Shelfort on the last days of a Trans Siberian Rail Adventure from Beijing. The hotel is clean and well locates close to restaurants and the metro for exploring St Petersburg. Located in a quiet street with good security. The staff are helpful and friendly and speak and understand English and enjoy your attempts at Russian. This is the 3rd time our groups have stayed at the Shelfort and on all occasions we enjoyed our stay.

Very nice Hotel with friendly well-qualified stuff and cosy atmosphere! Very beautiful decoration of the interior with sharm and style and real fireplaces in hall and some rooms are the big advantages of the Hotel. We have only good memories about the hotel and our trip and the next time when we'll visit St.Petersburg we will stay in Shelfort Hotel again.

My husband and I just came back from our trip to St. Petersburg. We stayed in this hotel for the whole week and what a pleasant experience it was. The staff speak very good English and always ready to help. The room was pretty spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We had breakfast every morning and the food was great. The whole hotel is very clean and secure. I will definitely return next time I will be visiting
