A great discovery we were lucky to make! You can rent the apartment online before you go - a beautiful and spacious apartment of 50m2, very centrally located in the most prestigious area of the city, known as the "Golden Triangle", where Tsars and nobles once lived, today home to the main tourist attractions, palaces and museums. It is situated on the Fontanka (one of the most beautiful canals in the city), 200 metres from Nevsky prospect (the main street). In the nearby streets you can find numerous restaurants, bars, clubs, and cafes for all tastes. Next door is a good supermarket, open 24 hours a day.
The apartment has one bedroom, a lounge, a kitchen and a bathroom with bathtub. For sleeping there is a double bed in the bedroom and a double sofa bed in the lounge. In total there are 4 places to sleep, but the apartment would be ideal for 1-3 people. There's a TV, and the kitchen is equipped with a large refrigerator, an electric stove, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. The apartment has a washing machine, an iron and ironing board, and a hair dryer. It has a computer with ADSL internet. The apartment is equipped with all the utensils when you arrive, including kitchenware, linens, towels, soap, toilet paper. There is a single system of hot water (electric heater). Central heating. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, no elevator. The entrance is from the courtyard, and the staircase is locked with an electronic lock. Conditions vary depending on the number of nights.
It is the best and most classic hotel in this exciting and vibrant city. Five star luxury, an elegant decor, exquisite service, and located in the center, next to Nevsky Avenue and Opera Square. It occupies a huge baroque building from the early nineteenth century. The price is from $250 a night.
Warning to mariners: this is not a luxury hotel. This is like any other hostel, that many you can find in St. Petersburg, Moscow and other Russian cities. A "big flat" becomes a haven for backpackers with a bedroom of 4 or 8 beds, bunk beds and, fortunately, there are several bathrooms and showers (some not so common in other hostels I've been seeing throughout the country). The Hostal Sabrina is therefore a decent place, but it has two things going for it: the price (11 euros a night in a room with 8 beds ... not bad for St. Petersburg) and location, five minutes from the lively Plaza Sennaya, and 10-15 from then Nevsky Prospekt, the Hermitage Museum, and even more. You will never need to take public transportation as St. Petersburg is very easy to navigate since you just follow the channel! Some disadvantages include: no small lounge area with sofas or a comfortable seat for socializing, reading or surfing the Internet outside the room. You can go to the kitchen/dining room, but it is downstairs and there a weaker wifi signal. The price includes a modest breakfast of bread, jam, butter, and depending on the day, a bun or "porridge". It's nothing fancy, but it does the job. Anyway, five meters away, on the corner, there is a 24 hour supermarket where you can anything. In short, I recommend it. I spent about 5 days there and never had intentions to move. Are there better things in St. Petersburg? Surely, but for that price, I'm not positive. In addition, the atmosphere is pretty good, both with the other guests (well, that is a matter of luck, as always) and with people from the hostel. Ah! Finding it can be somewhat difficult. The address is Voznesensky pr. 41, in theory "lossless", but the site is located in an interior courtyard that can go unnoticed to the naked eye, and there is no sign outside to tell that there's a hostel (quite normal in Russia, on the other hand ... to avoid inspections, permits payments, etc.). So leave a couple of photos, both of the road (the entrance to the courtyard is at the height of the yellow sign), and the patio. Once there, the "portal" is the first thing on the right. It's a little scary at first, but it passes quickly.
It's a very cute hostel is in the center of St. Petersburg, close to St. Isaac's Cathedral. The decor is very cute in the kitchen, living room, living area, bedrooms and bathrooms and everything is very clean. The stairs are a bit scary at first but once you enter and you feel like you're at home.
Simple, functional, comfortable, and well-located (near the train station), with good service and affordable prices. It's not easy to find cheap accommodation in Russia! The hotel is small, and breakfast is served in the same room. We were lucky to get one of the better rooms, with a computer with internet access, fridge, and even slippers.
The Brothers Karamazov Hotel (St. Petersburg - St. Petersburg - Russia) is located just a 10 minute walk from Dostoevsky Museum and 5 minutes from Rimsky-Korsakov.

It offers a tasty breakfast in the dining room. It provides excellent Russian and European cuisine. There are 28 rooms available.
The Belveder Nevsky Hotel is located in St. Petersburg, Russia, in a building on the list of historical monuments of the nineteenth century.

The hotel Na Petrogradskoy is located in St. Petersburg, Russia. It is small and simple, but very pleasant, comfortable, and accessible. The staff is caring and well trained to provide the best service. Each of the rooms are equipped with double beds, shower, soundproof windows, bedside tables, TV, etc..
The Prestige Saint Petersburg is located in the center of this beautiful Russian city. This beautiful and sharp hotel outdid itself with a brand new appearance after it's last remodel, which has brought even more luxury and design components. All rooms are fully equipped, specifically we can point out with satellite TV and a jacuzzi among others. Inside the facility you can also enjoy a first class restaurant.
A hotel conveniently located two minutes from the Nevsky Prospect. The buffet breakfast is very varied. Like any Russian hotel, you should leave your passport with the staff, but you'll have no problem collecting it when you check out.
Rinaldi Art Hotel is located in the city of St. Petersburg and enjoys an excellent location close to the main metro network.

Among the places to stay in Saint Petersburg, four styles of lodgings are most common. There are rustic apartments where you can enjoy more traditional Saint Petersburg lodging, "mini-hotels", youth hostels for the traveler searching for cheap Saint Petersburg accommodations, and hotels. Among the Saint Petersburg hotels, you'll find a broad range, from two to five stars, with something to suit everyone.
You may be tempted to look to the outskirts of the city if you're wondering where to stay in Saint Petersburg on a budget, but this is a mistake! Public transport moves slowly and isn't great, so it's far better to find lodging in Saint Petersburg in the city center.
There are some hotels in St. Petersburg built in Soviet times. The architecture and unique style makes them a great tourist attraction in themselves, but they are outside the center, so you'll need to rely on the buses to get around.
If you're traveling during the time of the "White Nights", search for Saint Petersburg hotel deals well in advance. The number of affordable rooms drops drastically, and many hotels recommend that you book several months before the planned dates of your trip to avoid disappointment. Use minube to help, and you can expect a great time in Russia!
