Stayed at the Grand Hotel Europe for three nights; this is a hotel which aims for high standards, and in general succeeds. Staff are helpful and always available. The rooms are not as spacious as some I have stayed in, but are perfectly adequate. There isn't much to criticise, but if I was being picky I would question why there are no tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms - also why the curtains are too lightweight during the "white nights" in the summer. Overall, though, I would have no problem in staying here again.
The location, by the way, is ideal - just off Nevsky Prospekt, and a short walk from the Church of the Spilled Blood and the Hermitage.
