Excellent hotel, very well located in the center of the city, at a walking distance from the main attractions in Saint Petersburg. Lovely spacious room, beautiful bar and delicious sandwiches. Great fire, very good service. Breakfast not quite the standard expected. Charming door men. Would go back there any time

Well i still get to eat the instant soup and noodles.(ii) items in fridge are tracked so cant take out to free space for your own drinks. Hope...

The rooms are very comfortable. The restaurant has excellent food ( and a very high priced wine list). The service level in the restaurant gives a convincing 'Service...

We only stayed one night on a fleeting visit from Moscow, but were delighted with our choice of hotel. The room (suite) was excellent, as were the staff & food. We'd have absolutely no hesitation in staying again.

Just go and stay there and find out how amazing this hotel is. Exceptional standard, location, service, faultless. Don't miss the breakfast and the Spa. The bar was a bit sad but we only discovered on the last morning that there is a separate hotel bar next door that looked very classy.
