The location of the building was the best aspect (not the apartment itself) but we still had a ten minute walk from the metro station.
The apartment is part of a mini hotel and not a real hotel. It was located in a grotty building with dirty stairs to reach it. Bottles of cigarette ends were in the stairway. The opposite apartment to ours looked derelict with writing scrawled all over the door. We dreaded going up the stairs every night. On the first night someone was thumping loudly on our apartment door and trying to get in so we did not feel safe. The spare bed was inadequate and expensive. It broke on the first night without anyone jumping on it but we had to pay for the damage. Our son is only 12 years old so the bed was clearly inadequate.
It's a great apartment, homy, clean and nice. Great sleep even in the city centre. Would come back
Apartments are on the last floor of the typical living house. So you should be ready to face the reality of "communalka". Stairs are clean, but the smell is there. Not bad, but special. Those, who grew up in the city will understand. But this is not a negative point, my German friend was ok with it. I can only recommend these apartments! We will be back :)
Good location. Nice and helpful receptionist
Beds are very unconfortable, no maltres, is sponge. Be careful ordering a taxi in reception. Ask for price first, we paid more than double as we paid for the same journey on the way back.
Third floor no stairs
The personnel was very kind and professional. The room was cleaned, spacious and we had a view directly on the canals. Very good location for a good price: near all the key historical buildings. It is also nearby a few supermarkets and good restaurants, while being a relatively quiet area. if you want to have an agreeable stay in St Petersburg, I strongly recommend this place !
Some materials could be a bit more modernised: bathroom's pipeline. For the breakfast: maybe some fruits, but the choice was already good.
A stay at Hotel Grifon places you in the heart of St. Petersburg, within a 5-minute walk of Bank Bridge and Saint Petersburg State University of Economics. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours).
