Location & Directions

Aston Hotel

Nearest metro: Dostoevskaya, Vladimirskaya

The Aston Hotel is situated on Vladimirsky Prospekt, a major thoroughfare running through central St. Petersburg north-south, perpendicular to Nevsky Prospekt, which is only 100 m from the hotel. It is possible to reach nearly all St. Petersburg's top visitor attractions, including the Winter Palace and St. Isaac's Cathedral, on foot or more quickly by metro or overground public transport.

The nearest metro station to the hotel is the interchange station Vladimirskaya / Dostoevskaya, around five minutes' walk from the hotel. The hotel is convenient for both Moscow and Vitebsk Railway Stations, both of which can be reached by car in less than ten minutes, and almost as quickly by public transport. Transport links are also very good for Finland and Ladoga Stations, both of which are on direct metro lines from the Aston Hotel.

It is around 18 km from Pulkovo International Airport to the Aston Hotel, and the journey will take roughly 40 minutes in reasonable traffic.

Local Sightseeing

The Aston Hotel is located on Vladimirsky Prospekt, very close to numerous visitor attractions, several of which are connected to the life and career of Fyodor Dostoevsky. One block south of the hotel, the Vladimir Church of the Icon of the Mother of God is one of St. Petersburg's most famous churches, completed in 1783. Its distinctive yellow-and-white five-domed roof and soaring bell tower dominate the skyline in the area.

It was the church that Dostoevsky attended with his family in his later years, when he lived across the road on Kuznechny Pereulok in what is now the Dostoevsky Memorial Museum. Very popular with visitors, this small museum recreates his living quarters and hosts a variety of cultural events.

Next to the museum, Kuznechny Market is one of St. Petersburg's main food markets, known for the quality of its fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, and for its vibrant atmoshpere. It's housed in a beautiful neoclassical building dating from the 1920s.

Heading from the hotel onto Nevsky Prospekt, it is less than five minutes' walk to the Beloselskiy-Belozerskiy Palace, a fabulous pink neo-baroque edifice, and the famous Anichkov Bridge across the Fontanka River, with its striking decorative statues, the Horse Tamers.
