We really enjoyed our stay here, it was perfect! Room was nice and comfortable. Hotel was centrally located and close to two metro stations as well. Even though we had a room toward the street, it was really quiet. The staff were super helpful and kind and the breakfast buffet was lovely. We enjoyed talking to all the staff that...

Great location a few minutes walk to Nevsky Prospect in one direction and metro station in the other. Rooms are a good size easy enough to do some stretching exercises too, plus a desk and comfortable reading chairs. Staff are really helpful and pleasant and went out of their way to assist us.

All of this you can get in Golden...

Very good LOCATION, a few minute walk from Nevsky Prospekt. A lot of Museums and places of interest are at reasonable walking distance and I took transport only a few times. It is an extremely important plus in St Petersburg, as in such a beautiful city it is a pity to take transport (…in summer time). Every corner and every...

It is located just off Nevsky Prospect, which is the main street through the City, and is within a comfortable walk to the main station and high speed train that connects St Petersburg and Moscow. It is a bit of...

We stayed for 4 nights and very much enjoyed our stay. The hotel is lovely, staff is incredibly welcoming, free Wifi, and delicious breakfast (crepes, fresh fruit and veggies, meats, and sparkling wine!). The hotel itself is very conveniently located and you can easily walk to most sights (15-40min maximum). The only small thing was no view on the street...
