This is a nice small hotel in an old residential building in a quiet street, not far from a metro station, one stop from Nevsky prospekt. Good value for the money. The room was nice and clean, breakfast was ok. Sound isolation could have been better, on the first floor you can be disturbed by the door bell in the...

This hotel was great, in a wonderful location, walking distance to many attractions and two blocks from the metro if you don't want to walk. All amenities are close by, supermarket, banks, restaurants and bakeries, cafes. We had a great stay at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone who wants a smallish comfortable and clean hotel..

Best thing in hotel – it’s position in the heart of downtown with only 15 minutes walk to Neva’s embankment. Also I can say about perfect service and nice room. I’m extremely satisfied with staying at the hotel.

We stayed in the Shelfort after a couple of identikit modern hotels and the contrast was refreshing. The hotel is in a quiet side street close to the Metro, within walking distance of the Hermitage and many of the other main sites and with plenty of eating options and local supermarkets and food stalls close by. The coffee shack just...

Receptionist spoke English and was able to assist with questions above where to go and how to get there. Breakfast had enough choices and there was good internet connection. St Petersburg is a beautiful city.

Nice little hotel away from the hustle and bustle, but still in walking distance to the major sites and restaurants. Our room was a good size and very clean. The English speaking staff is very friendly and very helpful. They even made ice cubes for my husband when he asked. Good hot and cold breakfast everyday. We were there for...

I booked this hotel for a group of 20 seniors during the recent economic forum week. Even my reservation clearly stated we will pay the hotel at time of checking out. The hotel kept asking prepayment: First, it said we need to do this because it was a week of white nights, and then after we purchased the visa support...

Dear Owloctopus, thank you very much for your choice of Shelfort Hotel and for sharing your opinion about your stay! We are very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay at our hotel.

I stayed in Hotel Shelfort for 2 nights in june 2015. The welcome at the reception was friendly and professional. I had a single room in the first floor (room 5), where also the reception is located. In this floor there are not many rooms and thus the noise level was low. However, I believe that in the second floor...
