Hotel Esplanada: In the Heart of St Petersburg

Updated: Aug 26, 2019

Hotel Esplanada is situated in an ideal spot to start exploring St Petersburg from. It's only a 5 minute walk from the nearest metro station (which is very cheap to use), and our room was overlooking the river which was a bonus! There's a cafe inside the hotel as well which is a good option for breakfast if you don't want to be wandering around the city wasting precious time. They have everything you need, from soundproof windows, to heated towel rails, to a great location. We got in very late on the train, and took a taxi from the station which only took 5 minutes and was very cheap too! I'd highly recommend staying here if you want to save some money but not at the expense of quality and location.

Welcome! The hotel entrance is very easy to find, as it sits overlooking the river and isn't far from a main intersection and metro station.

Who doesn't love some extra pillows? Did I mention that you could sit in the windowsill and look out over the river?

Great addition of a historic St Petersburg painting.

The shower was amazing and huge too! The tiling added to the charm of the bathroom as well.

It also comes with toiletries in case you forget yours or run out!

Yes, there's a television! And a cute writing desk, which also has a mini fridge hidden away inside it.

Fancy a hot drink? No problem. There's also a water machine in the hallway for you to use.
