On bustling Nevsky Prospect, St. Petersburg’s grandest boulevard, the Corinthia is an opulent five-star hotel that stretches an entire block. Housed in three converted 19th-century buildings with a striking stone façade, it’s a historic haunt with dramatic interiors. The lobby features soaring marble columns topped by a lead panel ceiling and leads to a glittering DJ-helmed lobby bar. A soothing color scheme of creams and grays runs through the property, with burnished mahogany accents and artworks from the London gallery Artefact.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms have a dignified modern look, with wall-spanning wood and leather headboards, a muted palette of cream and chocolate, and such mod cons as WiFi, flat-screen TVs and a pillow menu. The off-white sofas and amethyst chaise longues are most welcome after a day of museum and palace hopping. Closets are the walk-in kind, as are the large glass-fronted showers. Bathrooms are sparkling white marble and are stocked with Bulgari toiletries. Upgrade to a Suite for access to the Executive Club Lounge for free breakfast, all-day drinks and spectacular views of the city.
Tuck into Mediterranean dishes at the Imperial restaurant, considered one of St. Petersburg’s finest. Nab a table by the window for the best views of Nevsky Prospect, or opt for light bites and dainty pastries at Café Vienna, a traditional Austrian coffeehouse. The DJ-helmed lobby bar is a stylish spot for cocktails, or you can sink a Russian vodka at the Nevsky Bar. The fitness center is open 24 hours, and you can relax on the terrace post-workout.
In the Area
Despite all the in-house comforts, you’ll want to get out and stroll to the nearby monuments of what may be Russia’s prettiest city — especially during summer’s White Nights, when the Festival of Classical Music and other cultural events are in full swing. Any time of year is perfect for taking the short walk to the mind-blowing Hermitage Museum (founded by Catherine the Great in 1764), St. Petersburg’s vast main plaza, Palace Square, with its Winter Palace and Summer Garden, and the fairy-tale-like Church of the Resurrection. At night take in a play at the Maly Drama Theater or an opera or ballet at the famous Mariinsky Theater. Architecturally, the Metro is a cut above almost every other public transport system in the world. It’s also the world’s deepest subway, so be prepared for the vertiginous view from the top of the escalator.
How to Get There
My wife and I visited St Petersburg in the 2nd week of June 2018. We found Corinthia Hotel a very nice hotel. The rooms are small, but neat and ghe bed was very comfortable. The stand out thing was the breakfast that is included. The location of the hotel us also very good.
Beautiful hotel with very service minded personell. Location is perfect right on Nevsky Prospekt which is the main street in St. Petersburg. Room was nice with proper cleaning. Wi-Fi worked great. The breakfast buffet was very good with lots of options to choose from. The only weird thing here was that you had to order coffee from the waiters, it was not possible to get it yourself. When ordering out third cup of americano (we're from Norway - we drink several LARGE cups every morning!) they gave us a few weird looks - haha! Anyway, we enjoyed our stay and will definately return to this hotel on a future trip.
One of the best hotels in Saint Petersburg ..Good service,curtious staff and central location.Had lost my baggage at the airport and realised when reached the hotel .The staff was humble enough to send is in the hotel taxi to the airport and hardly charge anything ..would surely recommend....
In the heart of it all. This hotel is a true 4 star with the elegant entrance, good service, and comfortable (large) rooms. The continental and menu breakfast in the morning was well stocked and fresh and the way to start the day. It is a fantastic location from which to explore this glorious city.
We stayed for five nights in this hotel and were happy with our room and service in general. It was not first on our list of hotels because it is pricey but the location is great. Breakfast is big with excellent variety and even champaigne. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Bed and linen excellent quality.
