The beds were very comfy and the location was great for my purposes. The vegetarian burger on room service menu was delicious as was the huge fruit platter (although very expensive!)
The food was not great, a ‘medium’ steak was over cooked and served with a raw garlic head - all for £26, interesting! Breakfast was awful, overcrowded, under-staffed and generally chaotic.
It's nice to be in the European hotel at Saint-Petersburg: it was my first time there in the place like this, so I felt like I am the tourist and not the local (I was the local there for some time in my life). It was also interesting to watch the bridge opening from the other side of the Neva River - the hotel is really close to the main bridges. Our room was just great! Clean and bright, with a bathtub and coffee machine. We took a big room for two nights and were supposed to move to the smaller one after this, but we got an upgrade from the nice guy at reception at our check-in (I'm sorry I didn't notice his name). The hotel is quite expensive, even for us, Israelis, but it was a very nice experience (especially when we ordered a breakfast to our room and it was even better than the breakfast at the dinner room :)
They wanted too much for a taxi to the airport - 2700 RUB. Finally, our friend reserve a taxi only for 1100 from official company, with good calm driver. At the night time and including new fast tall road, so you know.
Staff and helpfulness Location and comfort
As always, very nice hotel, good facilities, comfortable rooms, beds, pillows. Didn't use breakfast this time, but usually it is ok. Vey good surprise for me this time was that the hotel has an underground parking. It is not for free, but very useful! Good friendly and professional personnel.
Actually, everything was good.
Close to most attractions and had a good fridge to keep stuff in.
The dinner buffet was sh*t and extremely overpriced. The bathroom has a bath shower which was difficult to get in and out of plus no anti slip . The air conditioning only works when you card is in door so when you get back to hotel it was extremely hot. (26 outside even more inside because was on high up floor.)
With a stay at Solo Sokos Hotel Vasilievsky, you'll be centrally located in St. Petersburg, within a 5-minute drive of Palace Square and Peter and Paul Fortress. Featured amenities include a business center, limo/town car service, and complimentary newspapers in the lobby.
