Reviewed 18 September 2011

If you are interested in a convienient, efficient, clean, and friendly hotel in central St. Petersburg, this is a good choice. The room is very comfortable and staff is very nice. A few notes:
1) It may be a little hard to find the hotel on your first visit as it is located up a steep staircase with an unimpressive entrance. I stood outside for several minutes before I realized that had actually arrived. However, once you figure this out, all is great.
2) They play American music in the restaurant. I would have prefered Russian music.
3) The windows do not open :-(

However, these are all minor things. All-in-all, it was a great experience.

Dear Lucky_Suerte,

thank you for your kind words and positive appraise of our service, all the hotel's team tries to do their best.
You are quite right that our entrance is no very impressive, as our building is a historical heritage we are a little bit limited with facade decorations. Vice versa - our small entrance and door is a guarantee to our guests that they will stay at a calm and safety place, avoiding crowds of Nevsky prospect (the same reason we do keep our windows closed all the time, but handles are provided on request ;)

Please, visit us again and we try to surprise you with something new.
Stay in touch, visit our Facebook page for updates and special offers.

Regards,
Fyodor Tarasyuk

My family stayed at the Nevsky Forum for 5 nights in June, during the White Nights. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast buffet was great. We had a room at the front, and I was a bit worried that it would be noisy but with the windows closed and the air conditioning on, it was fine. We had no trouble with street noise. We actually had a little balcony, and enjoyed going out there in the evening to watch the passing scene. Everyone is out and about at all hours during the White Nights. The location is terrific, right next to the subway, and a decent walk to a number of sights. If I ever go back to St. Petersburg, I would stay at the Nevsky Forum again. My one disappointment was in the restaurants they recommended. We had better food when we relied on our guidebook.

Very good location on Nevsky; helpfull, friendly and professional staff; very impressing hot a la carte breakfast; fresch and clean rooms; lovely restaurant. Highly advisable both for tourists and business people.

Be aware not to try to climb the scary steps with your luggage, there's an option to enter the hotel from the yard and use the elevator, the staff will help you!

Don't hesitate to ask the receptionist for advise when it comes to siteseeings, restaurants etc. They are really great and speak English without any difficulties.

I was in this hotel saturday 3 september 2011. entrance in hotel is too small but it is very good hotel just in city centre. Price is not bad and quality is good. rooms are well equipped and with new furnitures. to avoid nevsky street noise is better ask room with window on the rear side of building. location of hotel is very good and staff is nice and available to solve any problems. they speak english . breakfast is good and enough but nothing to wonderfull. it is an hotel to consider and probably i will reserve it again.

Our main entrance is not very big ( as our building is a historical type and our construction options were limited) but we try to create comfortable and prominent atmosphere inside our hotel - both for rest and work.
Thank you for applying to our reception staff, they always try to do their best to provide an exceptional service.
If you have any questions or requests, please. feel free to contact me through our hotel Facebook page.
Hope to see you at the Nevsky Forum again.

I want to thank eryone of the Hotel Staff for the most wonderful visit. Everyone that I came in contact with at the hotel from the restaurant staff, the reception, the young man that stands at the top of the stairs to assist travelers with luggage, etc, the lovely lady that kept my room clean and bed made where wonderful, helpful, efficient and went out of their way to answer my questions and assist me in my holiday. I felt, safe, secure, welcomed and in good hands. I was a bit nervous traveling alone to see the great works of art so far from home (Los Angeles, California, USA) but once I arrived did not regret the decision to come to St Petersburg, Russia.

The hotel is in a great location, comfortable, convenient to bus and subway (I used the bus for all local travel) and to be able to start the day with the lovely breakfast was a great start to the daily outings without wasting time.

Their help in arranging car service to and from the airport was most appreciated and lent to another smooth necessity of foreign travel.

Again, thank you and your entire Hotel Staff for assisting me in my long journey to your country I will treasure my memories and adventures!

I travel quite a bit, and have never experienced service like I did at the Nevsky Forum. I chose the hotel based on its great location including proximity to train, metro, and tourist sites, and because its modern design and boutique style are so appealing. After reading the TA and various book reviews, I thought these factors combined with the value was what set it apart as my hotel choice in St. Petersburg.

I didn't count on incredible service that was like no other hotel experience I've ever had. For starters, shortly after booking, the assistant manager reached out to me in Facebook and offered to handle any questions I might have before the trip. As I was traveling with my elderly mother, I had lots for him :). Fyodor looked into wheelchairs, transfers, and tours. He advised on visa letters, SIM cards, weather conditions, and websites. We talked about Russian language and literature. Basically, anything I had for him was answered with thoroughness and thoughtfulness.

At check-in, I found that Fyodor was indeed exceptional, but that all of the staff at the Nevsky Forum share his philosophy of attentive but not overbearing service. My mother's suitcase was lost in transit, and the staff took it upon themselves to contact the airline regularly for an ETA so that we could head out to see the city and not have to worry. The desk called my mobile with information as soon as the luggage was found and en route, and brought it to my mother just as soon as it arrived. The desk provided us with SIM cards for our mobiles so we only had to load them up at a nearby mobile store. They arranged dinners and taxis, and generally looked out for us in a low-key and unobtrusive manner throughout out stay.

Fyodor anticipated our needs, and even escorted us personally to the train station upon our departure, as he knew my mother's mobility was limited and he was worried that it would be difficult for us to navigate to the ticket booth. He waited with us until the train departed. Kindness and generosity at every turn!

The hotel is quite nice. The rooms are on the smaller size, yet so well-designed that they seem quite spacious. We loved having a water cooler in the hallway so that we could refill our water bottles without creating more plastic waste for the environment.

The restaurant is very nice and a great value. We had dinner there two nights. The breakfast buffet is wonderful. You have all the ususal buffet options, and can also order hot items like eggs and bacon at no extra charge.

I would recommend the Nevsky Forum for both seasoned travelers and those new to St. Petersburg. The free wifi throughout and nice open spaces makes it great for business travelers as well as tourists.

We were on a family trip with 4 and visited St P for 2 days. Than Nevsky is a good place to stay. Dont forget that Nevsky is a very long road and take the bus if you have luggage. Our rooms at the hotel were very large and the bathrooms were good and very clean. If you want to sleep with open windows you should ask for a room on the backsite.
We enjoyed the stay and the wonderful service.
