Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoandCo Everything We Needed
Very good experience right from the moment of check-in. Staff were very helpful and the building was well kept. Security was good with access to floors with accommodation restricted by use of room key. The suite itself was very comfortable and had every item we needed for our stay. Our only problem was the temperature at night time. The AC was turned off so we were unable to cool the room. Opening the window didn't cool the room sufficiently and also allowed the noise from outside in. The room was immaculate and daily housekeeping did a very thorough job. Feather pillows would have been nice (but that is my own preference). The breakfast was well presented with sufficient choices. The "happy hour" at 7 pm was an excellent end to a day out sightseeing. Room service was excellent. For anyone travelling by air - you can get a number K3 or K213 bus direct from and to the airport to Mosk. Vorota at a cost of 35 Rubels each; much easier than going into the underground with cases and having to change to a bus for the final stage. Overall a very enjoyable experience and would definitely stay again if visiting St Petersburg.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by harterz Why stay in a regular hotel when you could stay here?
I have visited St Petersburg several times in the past year or so, previously staying in the Holiday Inn next door or the Crowne Plaza.
This time, the price for a room at the Staybridge was the same as the Holiday Inn, so I thought I would give it a go. Located behind the Holiday Inn, you can either approach by road to the main entrance, or walk through the third floor of the Holiday Inn.
Friendly staff, and I was upgraded to a suite which was very nice and spacious with views on 2 sides.
Very comfortable room, clean, bright and modern, with a useful kitchen. I had no issues with outside noises. I can see why these rooms may be used for longer term stays.
The supermarket by the Holiday Inn is convenient and well stocked, and the Metro station is 5 minutes walk from the Staybridge reception.
The free breakfast was good, with a reasonable selection.
Internet was good.
I hope to stay here again soon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jacana A Pleasant Surprise
With no clear guidance from any travel/accommodation websites as to the best place to stay in St Petersburg, three adults opted for a one bedroom apartment at Staybridge Suites even though the reviews advised that the location was some distance from the city centre. The location was fine when it came to visiting all the major attractions. What each reviewer failed to mention was that the suites were no more than a five minute walk to the nearest metro station (Moskovsaya Varota) from which it was possible to navigate to each of the major tourist attractions by using the metro, all for the price of 28 rubles per person! Being away from the city centre was not a disadvantage whatsoever. Anyone with any experience in using the Tube in London, the MTR in Hong Kong or the subway in New York would have no difficulty in using the metro here.
We had a comfortable suite on the 18th floor that overlooked the Moskovsaya Varota (triumphal gate). The English-speaking staff were courteous, responsive, helpful and FRIENDLY! A pleasant bonus was the Manager's drinks between 7 and 8 pm on the Tues, Wed and Thursday.
The only downside was that there were no instructions on the hotel website on how to get from the airport to the hotel. We learned for our return journey that there was a direct bus service (K13 and K213) between the adjoining Holiday inn and the airport. The bus stop is directly in front of the Holiday Inn and the cost is 35 rubles per person, much cheaper than any other means of transfer to/from the airport. The bus ride takes about 45 minutes.
There is a supermarket conveniently located next door to the Holiday Inn, en route to the Metro. The kitchenette is equipped with more than enough utensils to prepare your basic meals.
There is a well-equipped laundry on level 3 with washing machines and dryers which a free of charge and washing powder can be purchased at Reception for approximately 20 rubles.
In summary, we had an enjoyable stay and would highly recommend the Staybridge Suites to anyone staying for more than a couple of days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OZinRU Overall experience
As we live in Moscow, at the moment, we have enjoyed taking our overseas visitors to St Petes and staying at the Staybridge makes the experience easy and carefree. We have stayed 5 times since July 2011. You are just minutes away from the Metro which drops you at 2 very convenient locations in the center. The rooms are spacious and allow for the odd night in ( to relax after the busy days),with good room service and an excellent Italian restaurant next door.
The staff are, always, cheerful and eager to help.
If out late a cab home is inexpensive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lkarnauk Good value for St.Petersburg
The hotel is new, rooms are airy and very comfortable. Kitchenette is a big plus - one can easily buy food in a nearby supermarket and use fridge/microwave/kettle to cook simple meals. One downside is connected to this benefit: ventilation in the hotel apparently is taking air from some rooms and piping it to others. As people eat a lot in rooms, the result is that it smells food in rooms even when you don't want it. It is actually a similar smell to the one in Russian trains. Other than that - a vey good hotel, conveniently located to metro, with 4 stops to downtown. Beware there is not much around, but hotel and adjacent Holiday Inn have a couple of restaurants which are decent by local standard though pricey. Breakfast is free and good for Russia.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mtv05 The room is big and clean
I stayed here only for one night. The room was large, bright and clean. The big advantage is the availability of kitchen with all the usefull things. The bed was comfortable with for different pillows. Breakfast was great: porridge, sausages, omelet, cheese, yoghurt, cottag, fruit, milk, juice.
I recommend to stay here.
