Small hotel (10 rooms) which is actually a refreshing change from the big hotel chains. The single room was really spacious with a modern and large bathroom. Perfect cleanliness.
Very friendly and helpful reception staff, most of whom spoke English.
Simple but ample and very good breakfast. Breakfast area is limited to 3 tables so breakfast time needs to be agreed the day before, which is normally not an issue with so few guests.
Convenient location, bus and trolleybus stop 1 minute walk away (direct to the city centre). Metro about 10-15mns walk away. Quiet and lovely leafy area, gardens and Smolny cathedral and park 15mns walk away. St Pete is quite spread out so 15mns walk is nothing.
Only downside was that they do not have a copy machine or scanner on-site. So, for certification of foreign travellers, they need to go to the local post office to make copies of your passport. Being a very frequent traveller for business or leisure, I do not feel comfortable leaving my passport all day to hotel staff, however friendly they are, so I kept my passport and made photocopies myself. If they had got a scanner to save me the hassle of making passport photocopies myself, I'd have given them a 5 out of 5.
I would definitively go back to this hotel. It is perfect if you are happy to stay in a comfortable, quiet, smallish, no-frills hotel which will be a convenient base from which to enjoy St Pete.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The boutique hotel Nordic welcomed its first guests in 2005. It occupies a standalone two story mansion in the heart of St. Petersburg, just minutes away from Nevsky prospect, Moscow Train Station, and metro stations Ploshad Vosstaniya and Chernyshevskaya. Major city attractions like the Suvorov Museum, Tavrichesky Park, and Smolny Sobor, as well as dozens of restaurants are all nearby. The unique location of Nordic on a quiet lesser traveled street, yet in the very center of the city, makes it an ideal place to stay. ... more less
