Rossi Boutique Hotel

Nearest metro: Gostiny Dvor, Sennaya Ploshchad

The Rossi Boutique Hotel enjoys a superb location in the very centre of St. Petersburg, within easy walking distance of Nevsky Prospekt, the State Russian Museum, the Hermitage, and St. Isaac's Cathedral. On the embankment of the Fontanka River, the hotel overlooks Ploshchad Lomonosova, a beautiful neoclassical circus, on one side, and Ulitsa Zodchego Rossi, which is famous for its conformity to the classical Golden Ratio. Just about all the major structures in close proximity to the hotel were designed by Carlo Rossi, one of St. Petersburg's most famous architects, hence the name of the hotel.

The Rossi Boutique Hotel is around 30 minutes' drive from Pulkovo International Airport, and only 10 minutes from Moskovskiy, Vietbskiy, and Baltiskiy Stations. Ladozhskiy Station, which serves Helsinki and some cities in Northern Russia, is around 20 minutes from the Rossi Boutique Hotel by car.

The hotel is within easy walking distance of five metro stations. The closest, Gostiniy Dvor, can easily be reached in five minutes' on foot.

Local Sightseeing

The Rossi is in the very heart of the city, and more than half the buildings in the immediate vicinity are of historic interest. Only a few steps from the hotel along Ulitsa Zodchego Rossi, the Alexandrinsky Theatre, also known as the Pushkin Drama Theatre, is Russia's oldest and most prestigious national drama theatre, founded in 1756. Its superb neoclassical building, decorated in the traditional St. Petersburg yellow-and-white color-scheme, was built along with the surroundings, including the building that houses the Rossi Boutique Hotel, by Carlo Rossi in 1832.

Close to the theatre on Nevsky Prospekt, the Gostiny Dvor shopping arcade has been St. Petersburg's most prestigious retail space for nearly three centuries. Originally built between 1757 and 1785, the arcade's corridors cover over 2km, and feature some of the best luxury shopping in the city.

Almost directly in front of the hotel, the Lomonosov Bridge, built 1785-1787, is one of the oldest stone bridges in the city, and one of only two bridges on the Fontanka River to have retained to this day its original drawbridge towers.
