Very centrally located close to the Mariinsky, Nevsky Prospekt, Hermitage, St. Isaac's cathedral - the list goes on, this privately run small (5 rooms all en-suite) hotel is a delight. Run by an accomplished group of receptionists who will offer a cooked breakfast with freshly baked bread and home made jams,and refreshments seemingly 24/7 and with a smile. Everything within is calm, clean and peaceful.
The rooms on the road side could be too noisy for some, but those overlooking an inner courtyard and slightly bigger would be totally quiet.
If you plan to do sightseeing, take any of the hotel arranged, reasonably priced excusions with private guides (all superb) and private drivers if a car is needed.
Great restaurants all around both Russian and other nationalities. The staff can give recommendations without any whiff of back-handers - unusal in this country, regretfully!
A tip. If you want to buy authentic souvenirs at bargain prices visit St. Isaac's cathedral - less than 10 minutes walk away and worth the 250 roubles entry fee to view the most fantastic cathedral and hear its wondrful choir if you time it right!
