            Service overall is good and smilly. Good insonorisation. Very well located

            A teeny thing a bit of mould in the bathroom which apart from that was very clean and kept furnished of product and towels

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            The Ambassador was a good hotel for the price. The room service was a bonus. We left one day at 6:00, and we were able to have breakfast in our rooms before that.

            The location of the Ambassador wasn't great. We took a lot of taxis (especially at night). The area was downbeat (a lot of grafitti). It was not a long walk to the metro, however.

          • Group of friends
            9.4

            A reasonably situated hotel, easy to get to- but the instructions could have been better. Close-15 min walk- to the winter palace and nevsky prospect,which are the centres of interest. Hotel worthy of it's rating. Taxi from airport would have been EXPENSIVE(£50ish) but a 60p bus ride puts you within 5-7 min walk...ask at information desk in airport.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Queuing 3 times when checking out. 1st to pay the bill 2nd to ask for a taxi 3rd send back to reception with voucher to pay for the taxi

            Good value. Particularly liked pool and sauna.

            Beds not really up to international standards. A bit saggy. But ok. Also no hot water kettle or coffee machine in room, though they will provide promptly as room service.

            10.0

            Very friendly staff, very good kitchen, and absolutely splendid view from the top-floor restaurant! The rooms are smartly designed, elegant and convenient. Convenient location, with access to micro-busses going to where I wanted to repeatedly go (no's 252, and 212), and also within walking distance to great places, in case you would rather walk.

            Could be good to post maps of the cits y's and microbus lines. The information can currently be found in the folders which are available to the concierge.

            7.0

            The hotel is not so far away from the places of interest. The room and bathroom were okay. The restaurant is really good but expensive. The stuff is very friendly and we got excellent help for the visa invitation.

            Smoking is a problem. The whole hotel is non smoking and there are only two small rooms for smokers on the 1st and 9th floor. The price for the transfer to the airport was 1800 in stead of 900 we paid for the regular taxi and the hotel refused to call us a taxi. We paid 125€ a night without breakfast. All in all we would prefer a cheaper hotel next time.

          • Couple
            6.2

            The main reason why I chose this hotel was its pool and sauna. But as I arrived there I realized that it was free of charge only from 7 till 11 am! We were on holiday and it was impossible for us to get up that early. At any other time you have to pay more than 20$ just for 1 hour per 1 person! It was quite a disappointment.

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            Location is good, city town is very easy reachable

            Prices, report quaility price is not fair enough. 2 coffees in the 9th floor bar were approximately 15e, in concierge there is a really helpful lady, but the other one seemed to know the city even less than us. She also gave us wrong information (like buses that dont exit at all that afterward we find out they really exist

            It's clean convenient and well-located. The Wi-Fi internet is quite good and so easy to use.

            Sound insulation in room lacking but not to the point of being serious. No coffee making facilities. The hotel did not have an adaptor for a 3 pin electric plug for my laptop. In fact I could not find one in the whole city. I had to buy a charger with the right plug (2 pin round).

          • Single
            7.4

            The staff were friendly and took pains to assist. The lobby was very beautiful. The hotel is just across from a beautiful park, highly recommended for summer. The closeness of the metro stations was also an added bonus. The view from the room was a good one and the room was quiet.

            I chose the hotel because of the swimming pool facilities and was very disappointed to find that they were only free to use between 7am and 11am - at all other times you needed to spend approx £20 per hour. This fee included use of the gym which I did not need, as I wanted only to have a 15 minute swim. This was very disappointing indeed.

          • Couple
            8.2

            We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in mid July. Everything was great. The location is very central but you are not bothered with city noise at all. The staff was very helphful and friendly. All in all almost nothing to complain about.

            Some additional services available at the hotel (E.G. taxi, guided tours) were far more expansive than in the city. We felt screwed :-) Use the internet and you get it several times cheaper. In addition to that we wanted to get access to the hotel helicopter deck for 10 min only in order to make nice panorama pictures of Saint Petersburg. However security forbade us doing that with no particular reason.

          • Older travelers
            5.0

            Reception staff was not service-oriented, did not manage to answer questions. Sauna + fitness center cost extra after 11am - this was not highlighted on the hotel's webpage. Breakfast buffet was not always refilled, even if breakfast was still on for 30 mins

          • Single
            8.2

            The hotel interior is wonderfool, the rooms are clean, with new furniture and the bed is really comfortable. Also there is a sauna and a gym which was not very big, but was enough for me, since I visited it in the evening and they were not crowded with people. There is also a good opportunity to order the breakfast beforehand starting from 3 a.m. which is very usefull for people who are going to check out veyr early.

            The water in swimming pool was not clear enough.
