We had a 4 night stay at the Cronwell. The hotel proved to be clean, warm and quiet with very little street noise so our nights sleep was undisturbed.
Staff were helpful and courteous and very attentive at breakfast, which was very good with a wide selection on offer.
We enjoyed our stay without having to break the bank.

This is a great hotel right on Nevsky Prospect. It isnt that easy to spot - the directions on the website are out of date (the shop/bar they mention have changed) - a sign outside would be helpful! You walk through a metal gateway opposite the Nevsky Palace hotel, signs are all for Hotel Anabel. Sign over the door is also Hotel Anabel, Nevsky Contour is on the 3rd floor of that building. You dont see any signs for Nevsky Contour until you get inside the lift. Having said that the locals are really helpful and will point you in the right direction.
Our room was beautiflly clean and all in pristine condition. Not the prettiest or plushest hotel I've ever stayed in but we certainly had no complaints. Breakfast was basic but adequate.
We would have liked a bit more information from the staff at the front desk - there were no leaflets about tourist attractions and when we asked questions the staff looked things up on the internet. I'd read a review from someone who'd got an entry voucher from Peterhof from his hotel - the Nevsky staff were unable to help with anything like that. Also my friend had her purse & phone stolen by a pickpocket - despite this being a common occurrence the Nevsky staff couldnt tell us how to report it to the police. Again they just looked up the local police station on the internet, which resulted in a wild goose chase. Russian customer service isnt like Europe - you just have to accept that!
Overall good hotel, nice position, 25 minutes of walk to Hermitage and close of the main subway stations. Some good restaurants on the secondary streets but also some grocery shops in the neighborhood.

"Excellent location near transportation and sites"
There was some confusion initially with our room assignment. Original desk clerks could not speak English. Desk clerks became more skilled in English as time progressed.We thought that the sheets were not as clean as expected. The room was a little small, but brightly light with a large high quality window. A small refrigerator was provided. Every wall was freshly painted. There was no elevator, a drawback for the less agile. The breakfast was adequate. There were many places to eat nearby.
