The current top 3 hotels in the city are probably the Four Seasons, Astoria and then the W or Grand Hotel Europe, depending on trendy or classic preferences. The Astoria has long been one of the top hotels in the city and is practically unrivalled in terms of location and service - they are top notch. In terms of the... More

We stayed here for 6 nights last week and couldn't recommend it more highly. We were upgraded to a junior suite with a beautiful view of St. Isaacs. Room was very quiet with double windows. The staff were all very friendly and kind. The breakfasts were delicious. Very close to Hermitage, Nevsky Prospekt and of course St. Isaacs. We couldn't... More

Luxury hotel, large and comfortable rooms. great service all around. Breakfast not to be missed and location can't be more central, next to the Ermitage, walking distance to everything. Security is omnipresent, but not intrusive. Everyone is extremely accommodating.

Stayed in room 515, a deluxe junior suite with a view of St Isaacs. Location is great - as well as being opposite St Isaacs, is only 5 minute's walk to Hermitage, same to the hydrofoil to Peterhof, it's also only 5 minutes from the main shopping street of Nevski. The hotel is smart, tastefully decorated, and the room was... More

A classic hotel remodeled hotel with top notch furnishings, fixtures and appliances. A bit over the top. Bath towels are too big and too heavy. Plugs are a bit in short supply in this digital age where everything (cameras, phones, Nooks, shavers and computers) need recharging. Internet is fairly fast.
