“A reasonable option to stay in St. Petersburg”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The Stony Island Hotel is a reasonable option to stay in St. Petersburg. The room is just ok, as is the bathroom. The shower is good (pressure and temperature). The size of the flat TV is too small for the distance from the bed. The TV have few channels available, and most of then have very bad image quality. The double window together with the good quality air conditioner, makes a quiet and cozy environment to a good sleep.

The location is good, with metro station at the doorstep and very close to the Bolshoy prospekt Street, with a plenty of good shops, cafes and restaurants. Is 10 minutes walk from the Botanical Garden also. However, there is no major classic tourist attractions around, except those around the Alexander Park.

The lobby desk ladies are very young, but friendly and hardworking. The breakfast is offered by a Pub attached to the hotel, which is surprising good and diverse. Is a good option for low budget tourist, and specially for those that want to visit or work at the Botanical Garden.

Me and my husband visited hotel in May, stayed for 4 nights. Checked in twin room,we asked to change for double bed but reception said they are "fully booked" and no doubles are available. The smell in the room like it was always used as smoking room, even "no smoking" sign is displayed on the desk, we always kept our windows opened because the smell was unbearable if you are non smoking person. Now the main- the room was dirty. The carpet- you just can not step on it- I used towels to put all over the room floor to walk around. For our 4 nights stay no one vacuumed the floor once. I know this is a budget hotel but for £140 you have the right for cleanliness and odour free accommodation. Breakfast was awful, same things every day and flies over the food. Disgusting.

I must admit finding a good and budget hotel in St. Petersburg or Moscow is a challenge.
This hotel is a nice balance between comfort, location and price.
Rooms are clean, Wi-Fi is working really well, breakfast is very good with nice selection of porridge, eggs, meats, cheese, pancakes, fruits etc. Beds are comfortable which is rare for russian hotels.

There is still a slight tint of Soviet Legacy in service and hotel interiors (cheap-ish interiors), but overall it can be recommended as a place for business trip.

Room Tip: Choose the one on the 6-th floor: high ceilings, romantic view on legendary St. Petersburg roofs and...

Hotel is clean, no doubt about it. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Restaurant menu is alright (nota bene: burgers are delish!). Breakfast is served as an open buffet and very good. Pub downstairs makes it convenient to go for a pint or two.
Rooms lack a safe deposit and a stable signal for TV.
If you decide to rent a car I suggest to remember, that hotel lacks its own parking, and by leaving your car in the backyard you may end up being blocked by some mindless idiot's car.
My overall experience is very positive, and despite few lacks, which I addressed above, I will return to Stony Island if I am in the area again.

Room Tip: Try to pick up room with windows facing the backyard of the place. OK, the view is maybe not spectac...

The room smelled strange. I've managed to ventilate it after two days with open window (loud street). No chair or table to work with computer. Instead - mirrors all around huge bed.... Definitely it is not a business style hotel.
Bathroom - clean and big enough. Breakfasts unexpectedly good. Working, stable WiFi. Location - unfortunately the nearest metro station was closed for renovation. But still it is good location, some minutes by taxi to the most interesting points in city.
Good for lovers, not so good for business trip.

Room Tip: The 'Kamennoostrovskiy' street is terribly loud. Choose rooms on the other side.

Don't be put off by the exterior. Maybe it was because we arrived after midnight and the bar down the road was heaving but we took one look and very nearly got the taxi to take us elsewhere! (Although not the one arranged by the hotel as the driver was truly certifiable!) The reception area is a bit drab too. The room on the other hand was great, loved the decor , best air conditioning of a three week trip ditto with the free wifi. Location is great it really is a couple of minutes walk to Nevsky Prospect. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is pretty dire despite the friendly lady serving it and the nice breakfast room. They would do better to just charge for the room and let you get your own. All in all a nice place and even with the disappointing breakfast it was good value for money.

We stayed here for 3 days. Before our arrival, Vikas, from reservation department was very helpful in sorting out our invitation letter and visa via email. The hotel itself is beside the main road. It is about 100-200 meters from the nearest metro station. Our room was cozy, minimalist, modern and clean. The breakfast is in the adjoining bar. Food was okay and filling but nothing to shout home about. There are plenty of restaurant around the area should one wants to have dinner outside. Overall, I would be happy to recommend this hotel.
