"Excellent Hotel & Outstanding Hospitality - Closeby to the Attractions !"
This is was our first trip to Russia & we didn't know what to expect. But we were pleasantly surprised at the comfort, convenience & customer service we received at the hotel. This modern hotel had every amenity one could expect & more. The staff at the Hotel were very courteous & helpful to guests. Rooms are spacious & well laid out instead of the matchbox style rooms you find at some other Europe Countries. The front lobby has a great look & ambience of Russian flair & we were mote than pleased in every aspect. The breakfast variety & quality was simply mouth watering & delicious. I have attached pictures. They even offer Champagne at Breakfast included !! We ate dinner & it was very well prepared with so many different types of meat & seafood. In particular, the Restaurant hostess Anna went out of the way to make sure our requirements were met. Without any exceptions, Anna & every one of her assistants personified the HIGHEST LEVELS of Customer service & beyond. A BIG Thank You & a Warm Hug to Anna & her colleagues. I felt extremely welcomed & have very pleasant memories of our stay here & will highly recommend it to my family & friends. On our next visit to St. Petersburg, this is the place to stay !!
"Great hotel for business or pleasure"
The Sokos Olympia garden hotel is a modern warm friendly hotel within walking distance of St Petersburg city centre. The nearest subway is a one block away. There are a lot of restaurants and bars nearby. The pub in teh hotel is fine although the bar staff are very slow and seem to get stressed if there are any more than three people at the bar looking for an ale. The food in the hotel is very good. I tried a burger and a pint and it was as good as you would get in any sports bar in the States or Europe. The rooms are compact clean and have everything you would require. There is a sauna in the basement but its not very clear how one uses it. The buffet breakfasts are above average, great coffee, and they have a real wood fire burning in the restaurant. All in all I would recommend this hotel to any one on a cultural or business visit to St Petersburg.
"Great! Feeling welcome."
The hotel does have a great interior even tho it's not too pretty from the outside. The room is very comfortable and for the ones who don't want to go out for dinner it offers a great restaurant and bar! We love it!
"GREAT AMBIENCE OF A RESTAURANT THAT GOES ALL NIGHT!"
From the filled foyer to the fantastic view from my room, I was overwhelmed with this Hotel. It was part of a "Cosmos" tour and you don't really choose the Hotels, although I have always been happy with their choices hence travelling with them. There is a sauna and massage room underneath as well as a small gym area. I went to have a look although didn't really have to time to make use of it all unfortunately. This area down under the hotel seemed quite strange with open showers, male and female together with massage chairs all in a large room. Quite upmarket, but there is still that curiosity''' the buffet was sensational from the freshest bread , wonderful olives and berries, fruits, jams, spreads, soups, desserts, pastries, masses of different cheeses, to shakes, juice and fresh coffee and chocolate. Live music was also there and a fully stacked bar. The foyer was adorned with glass cabinets of Russian dolls and other souvenirs. Although i must point out the negative part of this Hotel was the SLOW Lifts. Too many people all at once and most times I used the stair case to get up and down. More so down, as I was on a higher floor. But the rooms were great. Hot shower as well as a bath. Coffee making facilities. although others on my tour said they didn't have this' Maybe I was lucky! Large TV, a great view and a super comfortable bed. the staff were attentive, English wasn't great, but we always seem to get by. The location was far away from the main town of St Petersburg, but the metro was not far away.
