I found it to be a very nice hotel with clean, modern rooms and helpful staff.
Overall, my experience was great, but there are a few small problems that I hope they will improve on in the future:
First: breakfast is very basic, and if you come late to the breakfast, you might not get any sausage, egg or salami. They don't have enough of all the different things they serve - first come, first serve.
Second: waterpressure/heat in the shower. The pressure comes and goes and what was one moment a comfortable water temperature may become scolding hot or freezing the next second, probably many users on one very busy heater?
Third: If you like sleeping with an open window at night to get some cold air, just don't. Street noise can be terrible, there is a gentleman's club open to 5 am just across the street. With the window closed, it is no problem. But some basic security staff would be useful to make sure noisy troublemakers are escorted out to Nevsky Prospect instead of shouting for hours outside in the backyard.
Still, Nevsky Contour is a hotel I would come back to because of the overall good experience.More
