In this hotel the most important two things - the location and quality of services. For St. Petersburg, it is very important to live close to Nevsky prospect. Also near the metro station and major train station, where trains leave for Moscow. But here the hotel is located on the street adjacent to the Nevsky prospect - 7 minutes on... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Great location off of Nevesky Prospect and an easy walk from Moscovsky station, arriving from Moscow. Hotel was clean, comfortable and very quiet. The minibar was incredibly well priced, a privilege in a very expensive country.The reception staff were extremely helpful, and perhaps the most friendly we encountered in Russia.

I live in the States and visited my home town. This hotel is exceptional. No street noise which is not easy to find in St Petersburg. Claret is an excellent restaurant with Russian cuisine near by. Close to Nevsky prospect and Vosstaniaya station subway.

The hotel is just off Nevsky Prospect, the main drag here. A slightly long walk to the Hermitage but the area is very lively with restaurants all over. Service quality at the hotel and its two restaurants was outstanding, as was the room. The quaint courtyard gave a degree of separation from road noise and was a great outdoor cafe... More
