Saint Petersburg Hotels: 223 reviews and 234 photos
If you're in the city for a long stay, it may be best to organise a private flat, or a bed and breakfast-style arrangement in a Russian or foreign family. We-friends website and VT are good places to start looking!
Unique Qualities: If you speak at least a little Russian, staying with a family is the best way to experience the city. Russian hospitality is matched only by the Scots', and you may well find that most of the money you pay the family will be spent on entertaining you. If you find this happening, don't resist. If you feel guilty, leave a note with a suitable 'tip'. The family will most likely give you an experience that money can't buy.
The cost should be much less than hotel prices, and will most often include breakfast and dinner. Don't pay more than $25 to $30 unless the accommodation is particularly comfortable, or meals are especially lavish.
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Price: less than US$20
