What a great value for money. Very nice hotel. Good spa. Good meals. Great breakfast choice. Rooms are clean and spacious. The bathroom is equiped with a modern style shower. The location is a bit far from the metro (the nearest is temporarily closed). But not a big problem if you don't mind walking a bit.Comment of H. Bernardus Josephus , Belgium the 2015-11-14
"Only downside for us was location"
A fantastic hotel with everything you could want. Rooms excellent (very quiet), staff helpful, breakfast best for a long time! Only downside for us was location. It's not particularly near a Metro station and we mainly ended up walking into city centre (not a problem for us). There are also not a great number of restaurants/eateries around. Nevertheless this is not the hotel's fault hence a big 5 stars.
"Nice Spa. The WiFi doesn't work"
The hotel has a nice Spa with many different types of saunas. The room was nice as well, but unfortunately the WiFi does not work well, it breakes up all the time. If they could get that fixed it would be a five star Hotel.
"Surpassed our expectations in every way"
This being our first time in Russia, we wanted to stay somewhere safe but centralized. This hotel has everything we were looking for, and more. The rooms are a good size and super quiet. The washroom has a big soaker tub, a private toilet/bidet, and an outstanding shower (rain shower and separate wand with high power). Lots of hot water, every amenity provided, big fluffy towels, and the fan is quiet and works perfectly (no steamy bathroom to contend with). The bed was super comfy with a down duvet and three pillow types to choose from. Bathrobes and slippers are provided for use in the complimentary spa that's in the hotel, featuring steam rooms, saunas, hot tubs, a large swimming pool and esthetician services for those wanting massages, facials, etc. (there's an extra fee for that though). The breakfast was the best we've ever had in a hotel where breakfast is included. There was a salad bar, cheese bar, salmon, yogurts, all kinds of fruit, an omelette bar, fried or scrambled eggs, steamed veggies, bacon, beans, crepes, lots of different pastries and fresh bread, and there was even a gluten-free section. We liked the little shot glasses with smoothies in them. You could even have mimosas if you wanted! The concierge is super helpful and arranged a private guide and driver so we could see Catherine Palace in Pushkin as well as Peterhof on the same day. We walked everywhere from this hotel. We generally walked 10-14 km/day, but you could easily take a taxi, bus or the metro as well. We saw the Peter & Paul Fortress one day, the Hermitage another, Catherine Palace & Peterhof another, and we did the hop-on/hop-off bus tour on our last day so we could see Nevsky Prospekt, Church of the Spilled Blood and other highlights. This hotel has a nice lobby with a wood burning fireplace, comfy chairs for hanging out, a bar/lounge area, and a restaurant that used to be a wine cellar with brick walls and archways between the rooms. We liked everything about this hotel and would absolutely come back if we are lucky enough to ever be in Russia again.
We stayed in this hotel only for one night and enjoyed it very much! The water center is amazing with lots of different saunas: aroma sauna, steam sauna, hammam, Russian and Finnish saunas and others.
"10 minutes walk & you'll be in the heart of the town"
- Good hotel with nice & clean Room. - Didn't like the breakfast BUT the restaurent area was FANTASTIC ... I used to get there in the time which no one was there to look at the decoration 👍🏼✨❣️ - great pool & spa ... completely useful after longggggg walks in the town or inside Hermitage ... great to calm down & relax - the room was beautiful & clean also a very good room service 👌🏼and a very comfortable bed ! Exactely what I wanted for a one week rest in a Hotel ♥️🙃 - the best thing about Solo Sokos Palace was the 10 minutes walk which took me straight through the heart of the town, Hermitage & that famous street which I forgot the name 😬 10 minutes walk across the river with nice views & lots of surprises in the way 😍 ... - also 2 metro stations nearby ... (15-20 minutes walk)
