Ra Kuznechny 19 Hotel
Ranked #345 of 1,020 St. Petersburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 July 2013

VERY DISAPPOINTING!!! TERRIBLY OVERPRICED!!!!!
WORST EXPERIENCE!!!
WE PAID 18,400 RUBLES (440 Euro) for a SUITE, for 4 nights and this is what we’ve got:
We had to pay right upfront after we’ve arrived. We got no official printout, just a little receipt.
No air conditioning. We had to open the windows and listen to streetcars that operated from 5 a.m. until 1 a.m.
Paid safe box. costs 100 rubles/day. No code system, you get a key.
No breakfast buffet. One little, dirty kitchen type of room on 3rd floor is open from 8.30 a.m. until 10 a.m. You can have only one cup of tea OR coffee (from Nestle powder), one bowl of porridge, two pieces of cheese, two pieces of salami and two Choco pie pastries. Everything is on the tray, which we had to bring ourselves to our room and then back to the kitchen. No eating table in the room, we had to eat on the bed.
Bed sheets we never changed!
Lots of mosquitoes due to opened windows. You can borrow RAID electric fly and mosquito protector, which costs another 30 rubles/day.
Baggage room 50 rubles/day.
No elevator, no bellboy. You have to bring the luggage yourself.
Old wallpaper, old furniture, old TV, only 2 socket plugs in the room, only one little mirror (in the bathroom), absolutely no place for toiletries (and we had a SUITE!) Dirty carpet in the hallway, dirty walls and staircase. The whole building must be urgently renovated.

Reviewed 2 September 2009

Hotel RA is a small hotel with appealing internet pages but the reality is a bit different. The entrance to the hotel is hardly noticably in the streeet and to get to the reception, you have to go through a typical St. Pete staircase. The reception staff was friendly. For some people in our group they could not provide the kind of rooms they had promised, so they gave a bigger room, but demanded a higher price!

The rooms were clean, and the bathroom had been decorated with modern materials, but the workmanship was awful, even by Russian standards. Hot water was available in the shower on one out of three mornings.

The greatest minus was the lack of breakfast room. The breakfast tray (that you had to book the night before) consisted of a cup of coffee or tea, a youghurt, and a small cake. Also the reception room was very small and there was no lounge; so the only place to meet your friends from other rooms was on the street!

The best thing in this hotel was its location; it is only 10 minute walk from Nevskiy Prospect and - in my opinion - in a very nice area. Very close to Dostoyevsky Museum and Kuznestkiy Rynok, the market.
