          We have been offerred a comfotable and cosy room. We were pleased to be served by well experienced staff. There were delicios and various menu breakfasts. Also, we were in silent and relaxed atmosphere for all stay at the hotel. Thanks for your attendance, we are for sure about to be your guests while next visit to St. Petersburg. The Blatovs.

          There was no hot running water while morning taking a shower. That's was very huge inconvenience and unpleasant surprise.

          After my short visit to St.Petersburg, I can say that I am completely satisfied with the service of Shelfort Hotel. Especially their hospitality and kindness was very admirable.

          The staff were very very friendly and helpful, making great efforts even if the English of some was poor. I was even allowed use the staff computer to send a semi urgent email. This sort of individual care and flexible home like atmosphere is a plus. The room was warm, quiet, clean, well serviced and the location was not too distant a walk to the bridge and from there the city proper. The hotel arranged airport transfers, the drivers of which were very good and had quality cars

          Safe place, spacious rooms. Not far from the metro station.

          Breakfast could be better concerning variety.

          Location is central in a beautiful quiet street, will take you 25 min walking to Hermitage and Nevsky prospect though. Big light rooms.

          No air-conditioning, rood lazy stuff, twice we had to wait outside as nobody would open the front door for us, especially annoying at 2:30 at night sitting on the stairs for 20 minutes:(( beds were uncomfortable, mattresses very thin, breakfast poor.

          The front desk and kitchen staff were fabulous °° particularly victoria and maria. There was no question or request too complicated for them to handle. I would highly recommend this hotel. Breakfast was yummy. Mazybe just add some fresh fruit. The shower was not fantastic since the water did not drain properly. Besides that, everything was fantastic. Would recommend highly to others. Thanks to maria and victoria for everything.

          The shower drain did not work. Fruits for breakfast.

          Very cosy and comfortable private hotel. Located in the historical center of the city in the very well extant house of 1890. Staff shows famous Russian hospitality and professional competence. Metro station, as well as sushi, pizza, coffeshops and traditional cuisine restaurants in 5 min walk. This hotel will leave very warm impressions for a long time, despite sometimes very dank St.Petersburg weather.

          If Shelfort has any miserable shortcomings, they are totally covered by the friendly and hospitable staff and the owner Mme. Irina Bykova.

          I really enjoyed my stay at Shelfort Hotel! I visited many hotels in St.Petersburg, but this hotel made a lasting impression on me. It has excellent quality of the service from the first booking to the check out! Home atmosphere, very quiet and cosy. Beautiful unique design. Large, clean and very comfortable rooms, friendly and competent staff, they are ready to help you in different questions. Perfect breakfast with tasty hot pancakes, porrige, croissants etc. It is only 3 minutes walk from metro station. There is absolutely nothing to complain about! My heartfelt gratitude to all staff!!!!

          The staff was very helpful. They added an extra bed upon our request for only 750 RUB, when our friends decided to stay in our room. Very clean and really quiet hotel. There was no problem to check in as early as 9:00AM.

          The breakfast lacked some variety.

          The assistance and lovely behaviour of the personel.

          Unfortunately there was no English channel on TV. You have to listen and watch Russian channels.
