The staff was very friendly and welcoming, that made the stay pleasant since I've arrived.
New place and quite tidy.
No elevator and open garbage can was left on the front porch when we arrived.
The hotel is extremely great as far as cleanliness and level of service. It’s a little out of the way from the center of St. Petersburg, but it more than makes up for it in what you get, and at the right price. Motel Ruslan is about 40-45 minutes away from the Hermitage Museum by Uber to give you an idea of distance (although each day it took us around 45 minutes to get there, and always took 25 minutes to get back to the hotel.......not sure why that was, and always found it odd, since it wasn’t due to traffic or anything like that). It sounds like a far distance, but it doesn’t actually feel like a 40-45 minute trip. An Uber to or from the hotel from the center of the city will cost you between 350 to 500 rubles. The airport will take about 20 minutes or less, and will cost about 300-350 rubles. There is a mini supermarket on the first floor of the building which is very convenient for buying food, beer, cigarettes, etc., and they open early and close late (usually closes between 11pm and midnight). Reception is available 24 hours a day, and they are there to help. I stayed there 4 nights and saw the exact same two ladies at the front desk every night. One was just average, and the other one was an absolute delight! Every time we saw her she’d give you and extremely warm greeting with a huge smile. She made it a true pleasure to stay there. Housekeeping really goes out of their way to make sure your room is clean, that you have fresh towels daily, and also makes sure that you are stocked up on tea, coffee, and sugar. The staff here works really hard. To the point where you would think that nobody was staying at the hotel because it’s kept so clean! The hotel looks like they just opened yesterday by how clean it is. The floors of the hotel are polished daily, there is a water cooler on every floor for if you need clean drinking water. The rooms are made really well as far as keeping any type of noise from the outside.....outside.
The hotel itself seems to be within an industrial area of the city, so there isn’t really anything in that area to do or to walk to, but that’s really not too much of an issue, because there’s a mini supermarket on the first floor of the building. They accept Visa and cash for payment. They also have a restaurant and a cafe on the premises. Other than that, there really isn’t anything negative that I can say about this place. My girlfriend and I had a great experience there!
With a stay at Motel RUSLAN in Shushary, you'll be within a 15-minute drive of Victory Square and Saint Petersburg Sports and Concert Complex. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. Free self parking is available onsite.
