accommodation issues. St.Petersburg

Posted in Russia forum

My advice would concern accommodation issues. St.Petersburg is a big city with numeorus hotels, motels, flars to rent etc..the hotels are not cheap.... but! Don't even think of saving money by staying on the outskirts! One should think over how to save time in order to see at least half of "must see"! So my advice is to stay in the city centre - that is from Ploschad Vosstania (Moscowsky railway) along Nevsky prospect till Palace square. My hotels tips: - premier 5-star hotel with antique furniture and fully equipped with all mod-cons, pretty penny - 4*, super location near St.Isaac's cathedral, but the service is average - small, but very English hotel for 70 euro per night (I stayed in May 2011)
Hotels on Nevsky - chain of mini-hotels, moderate rates for good quality lodging, - no stars, hostel chain - cool, clean and cheap! would recommend !
RA group - small dirty hotels - never ever - a radisson hotel, very cosy, not big, well-priced, but location leaves much to be desired
