St. Isaac’s in 12 minutes

A 12-minute walk takes you to St. Isaac’s Cathedral, a 19th-century landmark filled with ornate mosaics and paintings. The State Hermitage Museum, where Egyptian antiquities and Spanish fine art are among a collection of more than 3 million pieces, is an 8-minute taxi ride.

24-hour fitness center

The hotel's 2 fine restaurants offer a choice of dining over city views or under a glass-domed atrium, and you can enjoy drinks in the Lobby or Gallery bars. After a day of sightseeing, you can hit the 24-hour fitness center, swim in the indoor pool, or unwind in Finnish saunas.

Ambassador Hotel
Nice but pricey
It is a nice hotel, with many nice features , but it is a long walk to tourist attractions in St. Petersburg. The room was small, even for European standards, and the air conditioning could not keep the room cool enough to sleep comfortably. The staff at the front desk were great, and the breakfast buffet was outstanding, but three times the 24 hour concierge was no where to be found. I think it was too expensive for the room we were in.

Not up to the standard
The staff was unresponsive to emails before the trip,and rather stiff at check in. Rooms did not have an electric kettle or mugs which is considered basic amenities in a hotel with these room rents. Breakfast is very expensive at 1100 roubles a person when a sumptuous meal can be had for 3 to 400 roubles just round the corner.

Luxurious stay
It's not easy for us to be objective, after our stay at the Ambassador started with a pleasant surprise - as a gift from the hotel our standard room had been upgraded to a Presidential Suite. Needless to say that the suite itself was absolutely luxurious and spotless with a breathtaking view on the St. Isaac's Cathedral. Matching the suite, the hallways and common areas were classy and clean. The service was excellent - hotel staff was always available when needed yet unobtrusive (as it should be). When booking the hotel, we were not too sure about it's location, but it turned out to be exactly what we were looking for - walking distance to the center and major tourist destinations and relatively close to subway, at the same time in a quiet area. The only downside of our stay at the Ambassador was that it ended too soon. We would be definitely considering this hotel for our next trip to St Petersburg.
