Hotels in St.-Petersburg are more expensive than in many European cities. It is no wonder as St.-Petersburg is one of the most visited Cities in Russia and one of the most expensive cities on the planet. In spite of the fact that today in St.-Petersburg there are more than 300 hotels and mini-hotels of different standards, an average price for 3 stars standard hotel accommodation during the most unpopular season starts from 70 euros. During a tourist season the price of an average hotel room can rise up to 150 – 200 euros for a day and even such rooms are not always available.

To-day one of the best and official alternative to expensive Hotels in St.-Petersburg is considered to be apartments for rent which yearly are becoming more popular among City’s guests and foreign tourists.

An apartment for rent is perfect for your rest with the whole family in Saint-Petersburg. Reserving an apartment, you don’t need to pay extra for additional persons. It is absolutely normal to rent an apartment as for one person so for the whole big family (the same situation differs greatly in hotels – the quantity of guests is strictly limited by hotel rules).

The point is that in any hotel there are strict accommodation rules: a single room – for one person, double – for two persons and so on. Not a single hotel in Saint-Petersburg let a family of two adults and two children to occupy a standard double hotel room. In that case, You, at least, should pay extra up to 50 % of the cost for an additional bed or to choose between luxury two-room hotel apartments and two standard hotel rooms, and these are already serious expenses.

In your personal apartment such situation is absolutely different! For a family of 4 persons it is absolutely normal to rent two-rooms apartment in the central part of St.-Petersburg without any extra charges and the price for such accommodation is not higher than for standard hotel room.

Restaurants and cafes in St.-Petersburg are quite expensive and visiting them it is not always simple to order exactly the meal you wish to, as the majority of restaurants, even in the city centre, offer their menus only in russian language, not translating it even into english.
