Grand Hotel Emerald is a unique hotel located in St. Petersburg that has boasted high levels of comfort and luxurious standards since 2003. The last renovation was made in 2013. It welcomes 90 rooms and suites, ranging from Standard to King Deluxe Executive Suites and it is the ideal solution for business travellers.
Grand Hotel Emerald's classical interiors are in perfect harmony with the modern Art Nouveau architecture of the whole building. This style mixes perfectly with other buildings in the city center.
Emerald spa, Top Gym fitness centre, Velvet beauty parlour, Gzhel designer-cuisine restaurant, Versailles café and Suvorovsky lobby bar are the best entertaining and relaxing places in the hotel. Business people can also organise corporate or private events in the two banquet rooms or in the hotel's three meeting rooms (Amethyst, Alexandrite and Diamond).
The Grand Hotel Emerald rises in St. Petersburg's historical district, characterised by a mixture of culture, entertainment and history.
"For a 5 star hotell, I expected more"
There is nothing wrong with the cleanliness and the service. But for the the price and a 5 star hotell, you would expect a bit more. But we are very satisfied with our stay and have nothing else to complain about.
"Very nice view from the window. "
So, now I am in this hotel. What do I see' I see a very, very, very nice view from my window. Here it is. Please note the room rate is about US 120. Breakfast is not included. Not to bad. I love this city. I love Sant Petersboorg.
"A bit gloomy and without a personality"
We held a day event at this hotel, so I can't say anything about the rooms, just the public areas. The lobby looks unwelcoming, even though there is everything necessary there, and navigation is present and clear. In fact, the enitre color scheme and furnishing of the hotel is all in dark colors, very unassuming - really no clear style to anything, nothing catches your eye. I quite liked that the conference rooms on the 3rd floor had their own coat check. This is really handy. WC's are well taken care of and cleaning staff are always visible and polite. Wifi is a bummer - really slow and on and off all the time. We had some canapes for our event which appeared irregularly, terribly presented on trays covered with paper doilies, and all ofthem were a slice of a white baguette with something on top - more tapas than canapes, with no imagination and mediocre quality ingredients.
"Just great, visit and see for yourself!! Good luck!"
A modern and nice accommodation. Service is very good, you feel being seen and the food is very good. Security is taken care of. Several buses right outside the hotel brings you to the city center and many of the "must see" unless you choose to walk.
"A gem of a place!"
The Grand Emerald was my hotel during my stay in St Petersburg and I really enjoyed its charming, old fashioned ambience. I had a lovely shower with good water pressure – very important to me. The bed was super comfortable – not too hard, not too soft – with crisp linen. There was plenty of hanging space for my clothes, a lovely towelling bathrobe & slippers, and I really appreciated the shoehorn! Breakfasts were plentiful and full of variety – offering everything from fresh salmon and salads to scrambled egg or buckwheat porridge – great for those, like me, who have a gluten allergy. I also had dinner here one evening and found it to be very good indeed. I ordered the fish, which was delicious. All their staff spoke excellent English and were courteous and helpful at all times. If I had to find any fault, I would say a light near the in-room safe would have been nice as it was a little dark to see what I was doing (being in the cupboard) but that is just a small gripe. My room was always beautifully cleaned every day and loved the baroque-style furnishings. Sadly I did not get to their spa and gym even though I was told that residents were welcome to use it for free. Pity! I really hope to return one day !
