Every year, St. Petersburg is visited by thousands of various tourists. Undergraduates, teenagers, students, families come. Everyone’s needs are different and, fortunately, Petersburg can offer a hotel to every traveler.
As a rule, hotels are classified by rating – they are assigned from 1 to 5 stars, depending on the living conditions, staff qualifications and the service provided to guests. In Russia, it is customary to assign 3, 4 or 5 stars to hotels. Usually these hotels are located in separate buildings, have their own parking, restaurant, often a SPA center, a swimming pool, a beauty salon.
They can be located in the city center – for example, hotels of world famous chains, and outside the city. In this case, the hotel can be located on the coast of the Gulf of Finland, with a cozy restaurant for dining outdoors, renting bicycles, water bikes, and sometimes its own stable or golf course.
The same tourists, who want to feel the spirit of antiquity, but do not have the opportunity to pay dearly for accommodation, mini-hotels are ideal. This accommodation format has become very popular lately. A huge number of mini-hotels and apartments in St. Petersburg are waiting for their guests all year round.
The mini-hotel usually occupies one or several settled apartments in the city center and is managed by an individual or a small company. Location in the heart of the ancient city – their main trump card in competition with cheap apartments, located on the outskirts of the city, in the so-called “Zakadie”. After all, most tourists prefer to admire from the window the spire of the Admiralty, spans of divorced bridges – and not the former cabbage field, turned into a parking lot at the anthill.
