Radisson Royal St. Petersburg, Russia: Where’s the Sauna?

Radisson Royal St Petersburg Hotel Review is part of the Quest Around the Globe Trip Report.


I don’t know why this hotel is called “Royal.” It’s a basic Radisson, not even a Blu. The best part of the hotel is its location, right in the city center (see Guns & Butter: St. Petersburg Travel Guide). Compared to the W St. Petersburg or the other Radisson in the city (see Radisson Sonya St. Petersburg: KGB? A Sauna In My Room? TPOL on TV?), this hotel was bland.

Let’s look at some photos:

The Outside

The hotel reminded me of the St. Regis New York from the outside.

Inside 

But this was not the Bloody Mary bar.

Bathroom

And this phone did not call the butler to prepare my bubble bath.

Only a shower anyway
And these basic soaps

Room

The room may have been royal in its glory days much like the Waldorf New York was in its youth.

Overall

Stay here if there’s a good points deal or if the room rate is inexpensive. At the least, you’ll be close to the action.

  1. I was trying to think of the last time I have even seen a Radisson, let alone stayed in one. Then I remembered, I stayed at the Radisson Blu Dubrovnik (which I liked a lot) and unbeknownst to most, Treasure Island in Vegas is a Radisson. But still, I think it’s time for the brand (without the Blu) to be retired.
