    Our Contractor's View

    Superb 5 star hotel - with top levels of service and attention to detail throughout. Great location opposite St Isaac's Cathedral - and hugely popular. A firm favourite for Select-a-room.com clients. The included breakfast is a big plus. Hotel Astoria is one of our preferred 5 star hotels in St Petersburg. Special deals offering 4 nights for the price of 3 at Hotel Astoria make this a popular base for discerning clients. Note: recent refurbishment reduced the number of rooms, with 2 standard rooms converted to superb new Junior Suites!

    Customer Reviews of Astoria Hotel

    • Everything is great except .... there is no congratulations on the WI-FI in some place but not throughout. The price of being connected to the Internet is very high 800 rubles. Will not recommend the hotel for business travelers.

    • Dear Sir I want to thank you for a faultless holiday. Both booking the room and arranging the Russian visas through yourselves was simple, extremely cost effective and hassle free. Vakue for money was excellent and teh Hotel Astoria could not have been a better base for what was an ideal weekend in St Petersburg. Many thanks. AB

      I enjoyed very much the trip and I loved St. Petersburg. It is a place I want to return someday in the future.
       
      Everything was fine, the hotel is fabulous and the staff treated me like a princess. I stayed in a room with a view to the Cathedral ... just a dream!
      The service of the hotel is just outstanding!!!

      Dear Select a Room,
       
      I was very pleased with the way in which my booking was handled by your firm. My various enquiries and requests were dealt with promptly and courteously, and all of the arrangements worked out well. The visa support documentation was helpfully provided, and the transfers to/from the airport worked efficiently (if expensively!). The Astoria Hotel was very comfortable and I was delighted with the room and with my stay more generally. Some of the hotel staff could have been friendlier, however, and the standard of service in the dining room was not as consistent or as high as was the case in other respects. On the whole, however, it was an excellent choice.
       
      Thank you for handling my booking so well. If I ever wish to travel again in Russia or other countries that you deal with, I will certainly consider using your services again.
       

      JR

      Customer Services: Thanks for your comments in relation to the services that we provided , For info, our transfer prices are for private cars sent to collect you from the airport. It may be a little cheaper to use taxis from the airport to the hotel, but prices are not fixed and we have experience of clients being overcharged when using taxis.

      Dear Sir
      We very pleased in general with the Astoria, particularly with the staff, who all seem to speak good English, and were very helpful. Food and drinks are rather more expensive than expected and rather out of line with the rest of the city.
      Overall a good experience.

      Thank you! It was a wonderful trip and everything was very well organized. Only the rooms in the Astoria are very small and all have only one window! Next time we would stay in the Angleterre which is much nicer.... Please let me know about specials of your company by email!
       
      Best wishes!

    • Every aspect of my visit to Russia was well managed. The driver was helpful and on time; the hotel was excellent in every way and your internet service was swift,efficient and polite. When I called your operation over the phone, both in London and St Petersburg, your staff were extremely helpful.

      Altogether excellent!   MP

    • I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the Astoria Hotel in St Petersburg to find that I had been upgraded to a junior suite, which was very comfortable and nice but as it was on the top ( 7th ) floor and was on a corner it did not have the view of St Isaac’s Cathedral which might have been a disappointment to some, however as this was I think my 12th stay at the hotel it was not of great importance to me... 

      ...It was a very enjoyable trip and my dealings with select-a-room were entirely satisfactory.

    • I searched all over the Internet for a room at the Astoria Hotel in St. Petersburg during March 2010. Select-A-Room had by far the best price... and breakfast included! At the hotel itself, there were no problems whatsoever. I got my room and breakfast too - again, for a great price. I realize (note the spelling) that your company is based on the Continent, but this is one American who will check you out first the next time he travels overseas.
