Dostoyevskiy has 4 stars. In theory. I would give it only 2. The room was ok but there were no tea or coffee facilities, no water or even no glass. There is room service that will charge you for tea and coffee... Very limited toiletries. And very poor Wi-Fi (disconnecting all the time). Some rooms are internal (you cannot open window and air conditioning is poor). The breakfast offered a very limited choice. Rather poor quality. I didn't enjoy it at all and every day struggled what to choose. The coffee was horrible. This is definitely not a place I would stay again... Collapse

3 star hotel with a 4 star rating. Good basic facilities. Hotel in good location within walking distance of the main historical district. Breakfast could have been improved with some items rather cold. Attractive hotel bar on 7th floor overlooking the adjacent inside shopping mall - good service in the bar where food can be served. Clean room with 1980's TV but no English language channels available. Safe supplied in room but it wouldn't open. Collapse
Many positives but I can't get past the beds!

This is the first of two hotels I stayed in during my visit to St. Petersburg. By North American standards it would probably get 2 stars but there are many positives if the price is right. The location is excellent. Just a 10 minute walk from Nevsky Prospect and right above a mall that has a 24 hour supermarket, a Starbucks which is expensive for Russia and a little gem called the British Bakery. There is a vegetable stand on the corner and on the traffic island a couple of coffee carts. Buses stop out front. As I could only get WiFi in my room on one of my devices I spent some time in the rather small lobby, just 6 to 8 chairs and watched the amazing young men at the front desk. I also had several questions and comments and found them to be very helpful. While it is often said that the people in Russia are dour I found that if you are pleasant , cheerful and polite you will be treated that way. I always got a smile and even a joke or two. These young men are on the go non stop with questions and handled multiple tour groups in many languages who all had comments questions and complaints and therein lies one of the problems with this hotel. 30 to 40 people arriving at once at all hours, using the two tiny elevator at once , or the breakfast (okay food for a buffet), leaving at once from the lobby means noise and bustle. There were at least 6 different groups and I was with one ( a UK based mature solo group) which may explain the rooms we had. I can't comment on the value per price but this hotel has 3 floors of rooms above a shopping mall and many face an interior courtyard where the smokers congregate and with nothing to buffer the noise sound like they are yelling at all hours. Room was very basic but clean. The floors are laminate which is nice as carpet can be scuzzy but they do put bedside mats that could be clean but appear dirty. The same is true as the bedspreads are a heavy material that match the curtains and chair seats but you have no idea if they are washed between guests. I pulled them off immediately.There is a white duvet on the beds that was clean and they would probably better to just ditch the bedspread. One reviewer commented things appear clean but you wake up itchy and I agree. I pulled up bed and mattress to investigate and didn't find anything of concern. It could be a sensitivity to the laundry detergent. Oh but now the beds. The most important part of a hotel is the beds and these are sad. A 2015 review made similar comments. Travelling solo in North America we have come to expect a double or queen sized bed but of course in Europe in the basic room class it is a twin bed just shy of 36 inches wide...feel like I am 8 again. The real issue is the sags and bags. The bed droops horribly in the middle and when you sit on it you feel as if each end will snap up like a cot. One side is also lower than the other. With better beds this hotel could be improved. Other than that in a small room they have included some neat little features like a wall table where the outlets make it so easy to charge electronic devices , a nice wardrobe or clothes cupboard with a safe, a desk and older style tv, two chairs and a luggage bench. There are lots of lights. Temperature control seems to be an issue as the heat runs a until about 2 am even if your thermostat is turned off and one of the comments I heard frequently was that an engineer would be up to look at it. No kettle or coffee makers but a small bar type fridge which keeps water or soft drinks cold. At the right price this could be a solid choice but I was disappointed in it as part of a tour. Overall this feels like a clean budget hotel in a good location. Collapse
Great value, great location

Minutes from Nevsky Prospekt this hotel is right on top of a metro station. Efficient check in and check out. Good security - but not intrusive, give the guard a wave and a hello. We liked the breakfast here and were not sure what it was people were not impressed with - unless they made changes but I don't think so. Plenty to choose from, even cake! so Marie Antoniette would be happy too and friendly staff. Only gripe is no water in the room. Ok there is a fantastic supermarket next door and downstairs which is worth a visit but if come in late and forget even a water cooler in the hall would be good. In the old days a babushka had the samovar on each floor. Alas she has gone and taken the samovar with her, Bring her back! oh yeah and nice bar with cheap beer and great views. Location huge draw here though. Would stay again. Collapse

The Dostoyevskiy provided a decent staff for our group during our two nights in St. Petersburg. The rooms were clean, with no added frills. I was disappointing in the lack of air conditioning as the rooms were hot and the fan did not function well. The building is large and had maze of hallways to locate rooms. The breakfast was included and was fresh and provided many options. It was located within a short distance from the metro and several quality restaurants. The staff were friendly and responsive to requests / assistance with arranging transportation. Collapse
