St.Petersburg, Russia -need advice? ask! I'm local!

Posted by on February 13, 2013

Hi! My name is Sergei. I am looking for new friends all over the world and geared to give tips about St.Petersburg, Russia.
My overview: premier 5-star hotel with antique furniture and fully equipped with all mod-cons, pretty penny - a 5* right on Nevsky prospect 4*, super location near the Hermitage - small, but very English hotel for 70 euro per night (I stayed in May 2012)
Nevsky hotels – big chain of small hotels with average service - chain of mini-hotels, small 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 - well known from the Soviet times big hotel near Moscow Railway station a huge hotel and shopping mall near in front of Alexander Nevsky Lavra

Thank you for all your information on Russia- some of this stuff looks really helpful! However, the sites that are only in Russian/not translated to English don't really help as much. :-/

Is there any way you could write a review or story in English about some of these hotels and museums you've mentioned? We'd love to have them for our members to go research. Thanks!
