Excellent price, food good, staff helpful and can all speak English. We stayed with a group of 13 Aadults from Scotland. Rooms clean and comfortable would probably be viewed as dated compared to the west

I had another wonderful stay at the Ambassador. I just love it - the location, the friendly and competent staff, the buffet breakfast and the cleanliness of the rooms. Laundry service was speedy and good to have! Despite the snow and general slipperiness outside, winter is a good time to visit. Less people and the Ambassador is very close to...

Dear Guest! Thank you for your extremely positive comment on our hotel. I appreciate your high value of service in the hotel but special thanks for our stuff.

The room was truly basic with old-fashioned decor. The room was a lot smaller than I expected, but it was clean so I couldn't really complain. Where the hotel really stood out was location, in that it's close to most attractions, and food. The hotel bar which serves food even late at night had surprisingly really good food, even with...

This hotel is situated in a quiet street, not too far from all kind of attractions. The rooms are okay, the breakfast middle of the road and the service fine. The restaurant in the glass cupola on top of the building is a nice extra with beautiful views over the city.

A classic, clean, no thrills hotel in Saint Petersburg. Nice spacious, warm rooms with all the appropriate amenities. Big clean bathroom. The breakfast was grand and rich, served on the top floor of the hotel offering a magnificent view of the City. The srvice was typical Russian (average). I stayed in room 336.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. You really don't get what you pay for. The rooms are so old fashioned with scratches in the wooden furniture everywhere. I didn't have breakfast included so cannot comment on it. But the worst thing about this hotel are the 'leisure facilities'. I've never heard of a hotel that boasts about it's pool...
