We recommend two comfortable hotels that are 3 min walking distance away from the convention site, both of them provide visa support for foreign visitors.
Comfortable hotel on the embankment.
Rates differ for weekdays and weekend days and are subject to change when euro/ruble rate changes. Current price for twin/double room for 3 nights (23 to 26 April) is 13000 ~ 267€
We recomend booking your stay via booking.com

Both Marriott and Spbvergaz hotels can issue papers required in order to obtain Russian visa.
Marriott visa support
Marriott provides necessary document free of charge if you stay with them, but will charge you 3000 rubles (~62€) if you will cancel you stay after getting documents.
Link to the request form is on the hotel webpage:
On arrival you will need to register at the hotel, Marriott will charge 4€ for that.
Spbvergaz visa support
If you have booked your stay at Spbvergaz hotel and need document for a visa, you have to contact them via e-mail: They will ask you for details of your stay and you will have to pay 750 rubles (~15.5€) for each set of documents. Registration on arrival is free.
Minihotels and hostels
If you do not need a visa (or get it via your local tourist agency) and look for cheaper options to stay, there are plenty of hostels and B&B in the convention area. They can be found on booking.com and we will be adding more information on them later.
