How to hail taxi on road?

Due to short time in SPB, I have to travel by taxi few times. When starting from hotel, I can ask the hotel to book.

But how do I hail taxi on road? I read potentially every car in Russia is a taxi. So how do I recognize which one is real "taxi"? Do they display any sign? Is it in Russian or English?

I won't have phone internet. So can't use any app.

>> if you let us know which hotel that is we'll probably help you with public transport

It is Grifon hotel. I wonder whether boarding with luggage in public transport would be a good option (2 adults + 1 child).

You may wish to pick up a local SIM card with data for $10 or so, it will pay for itself many times over.
