In high season the prices in St. Petersburg’s hotels are 1.5 times higher on average than in European hotels. Despite the opening of new hotels, there is still a lack of guest rooms that pushes the price up.

According to Committee for Investments and Strategic Projects of St. Petersburg currently there are more than 600 hotels with overall capacity of about 26,000 rooms.

Earlier this year, St. Petersburg’s hotels were 30-40% full, but as the high season with its “white nights” approached the hotels became full up to 80%. A demand has led to a higher price. As a result, the prices this year were 15-20% higher than in 2009. The average price for three-star hotels is $150 per night, for four-star hotels is $310, and for five-star hotels is about $767. These prices are on average 1,5 times above the European.
