Grea location on Nevsky prospect, easy 10 min walk from train station, great to stroll the prospect with many sites, restaurants, and experience near to hand. Highly recommend the Executive rooms which includes access to the Club - Anastasia certainly made us feel welcome and having a more private retreat for breakfast and an evening champagne - all included!! Will return to Corinthia anytime!! Highly recommended.
"Excellent location, excellent staff and service."
Our recent stay at the Radisson Royal in St. Petersburg Russia was one of the best traveling experiences our family has ever had. From the time I made the booking, I was very impressed with the immediate attention and response from the reservation team with Visa support, and with the superb concierge services, who helped us book private tours and transportation during our stay in St. Petersburg. The Radisson staff made everything possible to accommodate our party of 6 travelers. They offered my family of 4 (2 grown ups, and 2 young adolescent girls) a business room (which is enormous by European, and American standards) and accommodated one King Size, and 2 double beds, and the room still had space for a desk, and a sitting area. The bathrooms have all been beautifully renovated and they have all the comforts of a 5-star hotel. The rest of our party included my 19-year old nephew, and my 88-year old mother, they each had a standard room with king size bed, still very spacious, and with fully renovated bathrooms. The Radisson offered us, at no extra cost, a wheelchair for my mother to use throughout the whole time we were there. The Concierge Services were the best part of the trip, their prices were better than other American-based companies I had researched for private tours, and the service was excellent, we had a luxe minivan and a wonderful driver very day (Edouard) and two wonderful tour guides (Lena for 1 day, and Lilia for 6 days). Staff went above and beyond for us.

Everything was very good, except the rooms are quite small. We were out touristing all the time so that wasn't a major issue. There are no bellhops. Free Wi-Fi, TV had poor selection of English language channels. Concierge is good, taxis should be ordered from the hotel rather than on the street. Taxi cost: Airport to Novotel 900 ruble, Novotel to airport 1,200 ruble, Novotel to Hermitage 380 rubles. It's a few hundred meters off Nevsky Prospect. Many restaurants within easy walking distance.

The Kempinski is a fabulous hotel right around the corner from the Hermitage. It is quiet, clean, spiffy, and most of all the staff is incredible. The Brasserie restaurant is world class in all respects. The concierge team was just great to us. First they helped us book a great restaurant; the DOM. Then they helped my son find the Magic the Gathering Russian language playing cards he wanted to bring back for a friend. We had enjoyed the Russian and Georgian wines we'd had at the Dom and Brasserie so much that we asked the concierge to see where we could find them. This was at lunch on our last day, with an early departure back home the next AM. She (Elena) not only found the wines, but she had 10 bottles wrapped in bubble wrap and delivered to our room within hours. All we had to do was leave the money to pay for them at the concierge desk. I saw some of those wines at the duty free shop at the Moscow airport on sale for twice what we paid. The breakfasts were also great. and the price through Expedia was ridiculously low when booked with our round trip air tickets.
