Hotel AlexanderPlatz
Ranked #178 of 359 Hotels in St. Petersburg
Reviewed 24 October 2009

I recently completed my first trip to Russia. I was travelling on business to a small town but at the end of the trip I took an extra couple days to visit St. Petersburg by myself. A colleague who has lived in Russia for several years now recommended the AlexanderPlatz to me.

It's a small hotel and it feels great. The location is not really walking distance to the Hermitage, but there is a bus route that passes within a block that will take you there in about 15 min for 18 rubles. The hotel faces a quiet little street. The room was reasonably sized with twin beds (for a single room) and a table with chairs. There was also a small balcony. The bathroom was nice with heated floors and bathrobes provided. I understand there is a private sauna with pool on the premesis that you can rent for an hour's relaxation. The room was clean though it was apparently a smoking room so there was a hint of smoke in it. The bedding was very nice.

For price of a single room (for this off-season was less than $100 CDN) was less than I expected to pay for a night in St. Petersburg and felt like I found a real gem. Between the inexpensive food, the inexpensive public transportation and travelling there inexpensively by train I have felt like visiting St. Petersburg has been a wonderful (and very affordable) experience.

PS: the taxi drivers outside the train station will tell you the fare to the hotel is 30 euros - 1300 rubles. The actual fare should be more like 300 (tree stow!!) or 400. Feel free to tell one to take a hike and go talk to another.
