In this article you will find information on 10 most unusual hotels and dormitories of Saint Petersburg.
Checking in at four-star Karamazov Hotel starts at 11 a.m. and takes no more than 3 minutes.
The hotel is situated on a quiet street called Sozialisticheskaya (standing for ‘socialist’) and attracts you will the smell of chocolate coming from a nearby chocolate factory. The hotel has a large parking lot where you can leave your car for a reasonable sum.
There are 28 rooms in the hotel, standard and the so called “interior rooms” featuring an interior a la the 19th century and bathrobes and slippers as a bonus.
WiFi and an elevator (which is weird but still operational) are also available.
Nuances: the hotel has a good audibility and you will always hear your neighbors returning to their room after a late dinner. The shampoo and shower gel you will find in the bathroom are impossible to open without scissors. Standard rooms have no bathrobes and slippers which is strange for a four-star hotel.
Breakfast is included which is good. As for the food, it’s Ok.
Rakhmaninov Hotel is situated on Kazanskaya Street which is a very convenient location for tourists because it is surrounded with places of interest. It is not equipped with an elevator so be prepared to take your suitcase on the third floor by yourself.
Its receptionists are friendly and you feel comfortable here.
The hotel features 25 rooms and one of them belonged to the composer the hotel was named after (naturally, it is the most expensive room in the hotel). The room doors have paintings inspired by Rakhmaninov’s music.
Its audibility is good too but two doors separating the room and the passage are of a little help. Shampoo and shower gel are provided. By the way, the hotel somehow managed to avoid occasional problems with hot water the rest houses of the neighborhood have to face.
