With the recent addition of a spa offering massages, this intimate, elegant hotel has added one more reason to pamper yourself. The grand architecture of the 1870 building, careful interior design (all the artwork is original and for sale), and location on the Fontanka embankment — one of the chic-est addresses in town — will already have you feeling like a titled Russian straight out of Anna Karenina. When you’re ready to step back into modern times, the restaurant serves pan-Asian specialties, there are laptops for use in the lounge, and the WiFi is free and fast.
In the Area
It’s just a 10-minute walk from Nevsky Prospect — the busy, beating heart of the city— but the Rossi feels like a peaceful oasis, thanks to its riverfront location on Fontanka canal, around the corner from beautiful Rossi street, which is said to have perfect proportions, and ten minutes’ walk from Triton restaurant, a foodie favorite. It’s a stone’s throw from the Alexandrinksky Theatre, ornate Kazan Cathedral, and the art-packed Russian Museum, but if you’re willing to walk, drive, or helicopter a bit further afield, the concierge can arrange for sightseeing trips including rooftop tours, helicopter rides, and ghost tours of Mystical Petersburg.
How to Get There
Didn’t know what to expect from Russia and St Petersburg but from arrival at Rossi Hotel we felt like we were in for an incredible stay! Nothing was too much trouble and the front of house team were exceptional. The room was superb and the view over the Fontanka River was very European. Big thanks to Roman and the team at the Fiolet restaurant for the great food and even better hospitality
A lovely old building with a sense of history. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom spacious and everything worked well. The staff were particularly helpful and welcoming. Dining room really good; must try the stroganoff.
Great Location in the heart of Petersburg, many historical sites and Museums within Walking distance. Very polite staff, Always prepared for advices. My advice go there and enjoy an unforgettable time in Petersburg
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and there is a lounge where you can make tea and coffee. Very good breakfast buffet. We also had a delicious lunch at the resraurant
A lot of positives about this hotel. It's located close to all the major attractions, but sufficiently far away from the centre that you don't feel as though you are being over-whelmed by tourists. It's adjacent to very good restaurant where you get 10% of the bar and food bill as a resident of the Rossi. We booked a standard room 521, which was a little small but perfectly sufficient for our needs. There is so much to see and do in St Pete's that anytime in your room feels like time wasted. There is a spa and a library which we didn't use simply because we wanted to maximise our time seeing the city. The air-con was really quiet, the bed comfortable and we slept really well. Breakfast was included for us and it was very good, with plenty of good quality options. All the staff we met at the Rossi were excellent and simply could not have been more helpful.
