of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
4 star hotel, large luxurious single rooms, great food, nice&quiet atmosphere, heated floor in the bathroom if you're visiting in the cold season, free Wi-fi, tasty breakfast buffet. The staff was really nice and helpful and spoke very well English. The hotel location is fantastic since it's placed close to the city center attractions (e.g.: the circus, main rivers, churches and cathedrals) and shopping area.
"Second visit and a positive experience"
I visited this hotel the second time as my company books it for the employees. The location is great, staff is polite and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast has a good selection and the hotel has gym/sauna. I definitely recommend.
"Fantastic hotel "
2 of us recently stayed at the Radisson Sonya Hotel for 3 nights and we agreed that it was one of the best hotel stays we’d had in ages. Even before we arrived, the staff were fantastic. Special mention goes to Mariya Sorokopud who helped us enormously with documentation for our visas. The hotel also arranged for a taxi to collect us from the railway station very late at night as we arrived by train from Tallinn. As promised, the driver was waiting on the platform. We were happy with our twin room, not least because the beds were blissfully comfortable! Our mini bar appeared to be locked, which was a little odd. However, we got round by placing our bottled water etc., on the ledge between the two layers of window . It kept our drinks ice cold! The bathroom was spacious, with a particularly large rainfall shower and high quality complimentary toiletries. The hotel generally appeared to be well maintained and I particularly enjoyed the Dostoyevsky theme as his novel, Crime and Punishment, is one of my favourite books. The hotel bar was very nice with friendly staff and a good choice of food and drink. Prices were as expected for a hotel - i.e. on the high side - but not ridiculous. Special mention goes to the bartender, Timofey Petrov, who gave us some great tips of things to see and do in Saint Petersburg. He was great company one evening and hen we spent a couple of hours in the bar. The hotel is well placed within the city centre and we walked almost everywhere. It took a good 25-30 minutes to reach attractions such as the Hermitage Museum but we enjoyed the exercise - even if it was -6 at the time of our visit! If you don’t want to walk, Uber Black operates in the area and is very reasonably priced - particularly if you hail from Western Europe as we do. Finally, I must praise the fantastic breakfast. There was ample seating and the selection of food was very appealing and high quality. In addition to the food on display it was possible to order dishes such as eggs made to order. Again, the staff at breakfast were highly professional but friendly. I definitely want to revisit Saint Petersburg and I would definitely consider another stay at the Radisson Sonya Hotel if I do.
"Strange hotel with great staff close to the river and the old city"
Still a bit uncertain on how to quote this hotel... but regardless the staff was very helpful . When you enter the hotel, the bar and restaurant are on the left side but the restaurant is way too small and the food of mediocre quality .The rooms were very dark but spacious, the ceiling was not finished yet and trying to use the light switches was a real puzzle . Great bathroom but dark and a curtain hides the ironing board....bizar. A free bottle of water was present . Luckily this is not an expensive hotel .
"I wasn't sure at the time but in hindsight loved it"
What a weird but wonderful hotel. Dark gloomy corridors to get to your room. To be honest the rooms were as well but all in the name of art. Slept like a log as it was so quiet, restful and such a comfy bed and pillows. Great food. Situated in walking distance of so much. Great place.
