“Not as good as the reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2012

Spent 4 nights in this hotel with my husband. It is right that the location is on Nevsky Prospect, however it's on the other hand of Nevsky Prospect. So quite a bit of walk to the tourist places. Still walkable though. Room for me is below average. We were having problem with the mosquitos in our room. We also had a problem with the bed. It was really old and the mattress was sinking by the time you lay down on it. They really need to replace them. We reported these issues to the receptionist but nothing they could do. They said all the rooms are the same. And as for the other issue., they put an electric mosquito repellent but it didn't help at all. We hunt for the mosquitos. Some of the dead Mosquitos are still on the wall and ceiling. We also blocked the ventilation with towel to stop them coming in which did help a lot. Their should check this!!! The positive thing about this hotel is that they have air conditioner. It was hot summer & being having your own air conditioner is a blessing. Breakfast is minimum but it is there. We chose this hotel due to a promotion of stay 3 nights and get 1 night free & good review. I still think that those reviews are misleading. Some even commented on historical stair & so russian receptionist area once you entered,  which to me are really nonsense. You also need to give your key every time you go out but the receptionist changed every time. You can just tell whichever room number you want. I don't really like this idea. However We had such a good time in Russia so this hotel could get away with it. But if I ever come back, I will rather spend more money to get a more decent hotel for sure. Sorry Nevsky Express Hotel but you got a lot to be improved and fixed!!!!

Dear Guests,
Thank you very much for your comments and please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. Mosquitoes can be a problem in historic centre of St.Petesrburg in summer. We provide our guests with electric mosquito repellents, and usually one repellent is quite enough for one room. We are sorry it was not enough in your case. If you had asked for an additional repellent at the reception, I am sure two would have definitely solved the problem. As for the mattresses, we change old mattresses for new ones every year. We shall have new mattresses in all our rooms before the end of this year. We thank you for your recent visit to our hotel and hope we shall have a chance to welcome you again.
With kind regards,
Julia Zueva

I would like to thank all the staff of that respected hotel which I believe it's the best amongst the others in the area of Nevsky , it's so quite and you can feel the history and antiques even on the stairs , my room was a "street view" located with a spectacular views during the white nights, a free speedy WI-FI is available in every room , breakfast is simple and delicious , the lady in the kitchen is so helpful and a hard worker woman.Vladimir , Natalia and Anna at the reception desk are an experts professional staff, friendly , so helpful with a permanent smile on their faces to welcome and assist any guest , and so is the porter who is polite,hard worker and so helpful .
With all these elements together Nevsky Express Hotel is a highly recommended hotel for those who seek the Quite atmosphere , moneywise and excellent quality and services

We have stayed here for 3 nights now and have been satisfied. It is a good location close to a Metro and we also walked to whole way from the Winterpalace un a sunny afternoon. The staff is friendly and helpful. The wifi is available in the rooms and quick and free. Breakfast is not impressive, but it is there.
My biggest problem is, that the beds are so soft though that after 3 nights I am in pain, as my back is hurting.
We did not have trouble with noise and would gladly stay here another time.

We stayed in the nevsky express hotel for 5 nights. first, the location. the hotel is located on "nevsky prospect", one of the busiest streets in St Petersburg. We can imagine that on busy days this gives a bit of a "noise-problem" in the hotel. While we where there we never had any problems. To avoid problems we asked for a room on the back side of the building. This was not a problem. The big + for this location are the shops, the malls, the metro, the train, the busses, .... just around the corner. The staff in the hotel is fanatstic. No matter what you ask, with a big smile they try to help. Breakfast is OK. A small continental buffet. After a few days , it starts to get a bit boring. St petersburg is FANTASTIC !!! i can only reccomand it to everybody !! If you decide to visit the city, and you don't want to spend big money on your hotel, nevsky express is the place to be !!

I stayed here 4 nights, and everything was great. Friendly, helpful staff...superb location...fine room...all for a great value. Surprisingly, despite my room overlooking the busiest street in St. Petersburg, Nevsky Prospekt, the room was extremely quiet. I highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed at the Nevsky Express for a bit over a week in October 2011. The hotel is located up on the first floor of an old building situated on the principal avenue of St.Petersburg. It is conveniently located, being close to bus stops, the metro and the Moscow railway station. There are plenty of good eating places etc.and a small supermarket nearby.
The staff in reception are very friendly and helpful and speak good English. A self-serve breakfast is included in the tariff, which is very reasonable for St.Petersburg. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are of a decent size. All in all, a positive experience!

Stayed at the Nevsky Express for three nights while visiting the beautiful city of St. Petersburg. Great location close to the metro, Galeria Mall, and only 4km from the Hermitage.

My room was very small but clean enough with a comfortable bed. The room was in a peculiar annex, reached through a back staircase. It was fine for me and I preferred the quiet, as there were only three rooms in this little area, but I can see how others could be intimidated by the strangeness of it.

Fast wireless internet is included, as is breakfast - just don't expect a western style breakfast. Helpful staff.
