Location & Directions

Comfort Hotel

Nearest metro: Admiralteyskaya

The Comfort Hotel has a superb central location in the heart of St. Petersburg's "Golden Triangle", the site of nearly all the city's major visitor attractions, including the Hermitage, St. Isaac's and Kazan Cathedrals, the Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood, the State Russian Museum, and many more palaces and museums, all of which are within comfortable walking distance of the hotel.

The hotel is not particularly convenient for public transport, with the nearest metro station, Nevsky Prospekt, around 15 minutes' walk away. Moskovsky Railway Station is around 2.5km from the Comfort Hotel down Nevsky Prospekt, and by the taxi the journey will take 15-20 minutes. Vitebsky Station is a similar distance away, while Ladozhsky Station is on the eastern outskirts of St. Petersburg, 30-40 minutes' drive from the hotel.

Pulkovo International Airport is around 17km from the Comfort Hotel, and the drive to/from the airport takes upwards of 40 minutes depending on traffic conditions. The domestic terminal, Pulkovo-1, is 2km further out of the city.

Local Sightseeing

The Comfort Hotel is superbly situated for nearly all St. Petersburg's top attractions, with St. Isaac's Cathedral five minutes' walk away in one direction, and Nevsky Prospekt and the Hermitage a similar distance in the opposite direction. Guests at the Comfort Hotel are able to explore nearly all of the historic center on foot, and cruises along the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg can be boarded nearby on the Moyka River Embankment.

Also only a few hundred meters' from the Comfort Hotel is the Alexander Garden, a small but leafy park that runs along the walls of the spectacular Admiralty building, one of St. Petersburg's most famous landmarks. Built by Adrian Zakharov and completed in 1823, it is a superb example of Russian neoclassicism, and its celebrated gilded spire is the focal point of Nevsky Prospekt, Gorokhovaya Ulitsa, and Voznesenskiy Prospekt.

Just east of the Admiralty is Ploshchad Dekabristov, home to the famous Bronze Horseman statue of Peter the Great. Built on the orders of Catherine the Great by French sculptor Etienne Maurice Falconet, the statue took 12 years to complete and was mounted on the massive Thunder Stone, weighing around 1500 tonnes, which took six months to drag from the village of Lakhta. With its dramatic pose, connections to the city's two greatest rulers, and central role in Alexander Pushkin's famous epic poem of the same name, the Bronze Horseman is one of the symbols of St. Petersburg.
