If you are looking for a CLEAN SAFE hotel at a reasonable price that is a 5 minute walk from Hermitage, this hotel is an excellent choice.
The hotel includes buffet breakfast, which is a fairly simple affair (coffee, juice, hard boiled eggs, cheese, cereal, etc..) but it will sustain you for the morning's adventures.
The rooms are clean and the beds are.. Russian. If you are looking for soft plush American beds, you need to stay at an American chain.
The staff speaks English quite well, are very friendly and helpful. The Nevsky Hotel chain answers e-mails promptly and are a professional organization (it seems they are a hotel chain).
The hotel is centrally located a 5 minute walk to the Hermitage, 5 minutes to the Church of the Spilled Blood, or 10 minutes to Nevsky Prospeckt (the main street), but it is in a quiet area. (I stayed in Moscow and I think it's the noisiest city on earth)
The restaurant next door (not affiliated with the hotel) is Georgian and the food is awesome (take it from a guy who never had Georgian food until he walked into this place).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The name comes from the address, No 5 Moika Riverfront, and the hotel is right in St. Petersburg's historic cultural centre. Nearby there's the multi-coloured Church of the Resurrection, popularly known as the Church of the Saviour on the Blood. From the hotel it's only a five-minute walk to Palace Square and the Hermitage. The city's main thoroughfare, Nevsky Prospect, with its museums and glittery Parisian-style nightlife is less than ten minutes away.
