Rachmaninov Art-Hotel
Ranked #80 of 362 Hotels in St. Petersburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 September 2017

This hotel has a great location just off the Nevsky Prospect. Breakfast was ok. The staff was nice. The water isn't potable (giardia in the water supply for the whole city), so you have to buy water bottles. There were two bottles in our room when we showed up. The receptionist said that they would be replaced each day, but this could have been a translation issue. I went to a grocery store half a mile north and grabbed a bunch of 2L water bottles for 20 R each, so this wasn't really an issue. I would stay here again.

We had a great stay here. Although to be fair the four flights of stairs to the reception may be an issue for some.

The staff were great, helpful and knowledgeable - good English and not afraid to engage in conversation about our stay.

Great location with several good Georgian restaurants over the road. The coffee and the beer at the Singer bookshop are also worth the time especially as you look out the window at the Cathedral.

Metro is close - although we walked most places with ease.

As to the hotel - amenities are in keeping with its rating. It is clean and well serviced. The bed(s) were comfortable and the rooms well appointed, although I understand in keeping with its eclectic nature the rooms are all different.

Highly recommended for travelers wanting more than a standard room and hotel experience. We stayed four nights and would happily go back - and recommend it to others

I strongly recommend the Rachmaninov Art-Hotel, also known as the Antique Hotel Rachmaninov. Wonderful location, very helpful, friendly staff. It's a quirky hotel, with art by local artists all over the hotel, including the doors of each room. Said to be where Rachmaninov lived and you can readily believe it. The place is evocative of the 19th century. The drawback is a long flight of stone stairs, quite wonderful to look at, but a workout at the end of a day of touring! Still, they lend an air of authenticity and if your legs are strong, you wont mind them.

The staff were amazing and very helpful. The location was fantastic - walking distance to the hermitage museum, the hydrofoils, great restaurants, etc. There is no elevator, only stairs - which we discovered is common in many Russian hotels. The entrance of the hotel is up about 2 flights of stairs. The hotel was decorated with neat art. The room was large and was a cute, older style. It wasn't super fancy, but it met our needs. We could hear traffic outside, but that's what happens when one stays downtown, near the sites. The breakfast had cereal, hard boiled eggs, porridge, hot dogs, cooked vegetables, pastries, yogurt, coffee and tea. My husband enjoyed it. I can't eat dairy, so I walked a block down the street to Starbucks and was able to get vegan breakfast and lattes. Overall, a great stay!

What we liked:
Absolutely great staff, probably the best we ever encountered during or trips - friendly, efficient and professional
Best location possible to explore the city
Parking in the courtyard
Rooms with A/C are available
Good breakfast

What we didn't like:
Third floor without elevator
Help with luggage is not available on weekends
Rooms are rather small and dark
Shower is very small even for a slim person
Price was a bit too high for the class of the hotel and quality of the room

Room Tip: Ask for the room with A/C even when the weather s cool. It can still get stuffy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A conceptual boutique-hotel "Rachmaninov" is situated in the very center of St. Petersburg near Nevsky Prospect and Kazansky Cathedral. It combines the museum area with a homely coziness, sophisticated atmosphere of the Silver Age with bohemian chic of nowadays. The owners of the hotel possess a unique collection of antiques. They also constantly replenish the hotel art collection with contemporary paintings and photography. In years of its existence “Rachmaninov” became a very popular hotel (apartments). Among the guests you can see celebrities, people of culture, consulate representatives, politicians and businessmen who are interested in art. On a fifth anniversary of the hotel famous St. Petersburg artists painted the doors of the rooms in the hotel with their fantasies based on the music of the famous Russian composer. The hotel, situated in the former commercial house, carefully looks after the room where Rachmaninov spent some time of his youth. The layout of the hotel looks like an art gallery and this is not accidentally – here the exhibitions of different artists regularly take place. ... more   less
