St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in Russia, which attracts tourists from all over the world with its museums, architectural monuments and cultural events.
The northern capital offers tourists many housing options. We tell you more about each in the article. However, we recommend staying at a hotel in the center of St. Petersburg in order to quickly get to tourist locations and enjoy first-class service.
Apartments in the city center
The most common option for tourists is to rent apartments with daily payment. This is a fairly affordable and convenient option for those who prefer to live in a cozy atmosphere and a greater degree of freedom. Such apartments can be found on popular rental websites.
The disadvantages of the apartment are the difficult search for really good housing and conscientious landlords, as well as the lack of any service. You will have to clean and cook breakfast yourself.
Hotel in the city center
The most affordable and classic option is to book a hotel. Accessibility lies in the fact that even in the center you can find a room with a favorable price tag. In addition, hotels and inns often place special offers for tourists.
There are many hotels in St. Petersburg, ranging from simple hostels to luxury complexes. Choose accommodation within walking distance from Nevsky Prospekt, in the Admiralteysky district, to admire the beautiful streets and canals from the room window.
Apart-hotels are a good option for those who are looking for a more convenient and homely way of accommodation. Such hotels are usually located in the city center and offer a full room with a kitchenette, which allow you to cook yourself and save on food.
Apart-hotels are more expensive than usual, and often the kitchen in the room remains untouched. After all, no one wants to stand at the stove during their vacation.
If you are looking for a budget option, hostels are your choice. These are minimalist accommodation options offering beds or small rooms with shared bathroom facilities. A huge number of hostels have opened in St. Petersburg, but they are not suitable for everyone.
There is no comfort and privacy in this type of accommodation, especially if you have chosen a shared room.
Where to stay in the center of St. Petersburg? Book a cozy room at the Express Sadovaya Hotel. We offer our guests excellent service and an atmosphere of comfort and care, and are also glad to see tourists with four-legged companions.
