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
The staff at this hotel are absolutely exceptional, and really added to our overall enjoyable experience of the city. The reception staff were wonderful, and gave a lot of very helpful advice and guidance on the best places to visit. The rooms are spacious and very nicely decorated. The hotel is quiet, so you should have a very peaceful night's sleep. The breakfast in the hotel was outstanding, and although it was a little expensive, the variety and quality of the service as well as the food was excellent. The location is top class, you cannot get better than Nevisky Prospekt! A massive thank you to all the wonderful staff who made our stay so wonderful.
We had a lovely experience at the Corinthia Hotel. Rooms were comfortable and clean, all staff were exceptional in every way, from receptionist to door man. The girls who work at the concierge desk were wonderful. They were so helpful - more than helpful - with a specific purchase that I wanted.
Location is perfect for all that there is to do in beautiful St Petersburg.
St.Petersburg in the snow was magical and fun , and staying right on Nevsky Prospekt so close to all the cultural sights as well as the shops an added bonus . The staff were so very friendly and helpful , and nothing was too much trouble .
We used the hotel car to both collect us from and take us to the airport , as well as for a trip to the theatre for the ballet . This worked very well and for the service received was excellent value .
The food was again a very good standard and enjoyable .
All round a wonderful stay and we will very definitely return .

I stay here quite regularly and have been doing so since 2011. It is a solid reliable good hotel. It has extremely high standards and keeps them high. On that basis you always know you are going to have a great stay and you know things will be good.
Its well located in the city, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts are excellent.
Due to the times I arrive and depart I rarely have dinner but i do use the executive louge regualry and this is equally excellent. Although the bar area in the reception is quite a nice place to sit and pass the time.
It is quite simply a great hotel and one of my favourites. Oddly yes its a little expensive but certainly not more so than other hotels in the area but this one does offer outstanding service and that is worth paying for so in terms of value for money it is actually very good.
My only negative comment and it is a very small one is I cant seem to get the hotel to add the stays to my discovery club account desptie trying a couple of times.
I look forward to returningin March !
