The communal areas converted from the original palace were tasteless and over decorated, resulting in a lack of atmosphere. The staff were generally surly, unhelpful and supercilious. The room was dated, tired and stuffy. Many of the so called "features" like the jacuzzi shower didn't work properly, plugs and bulbs were missing and the mattress was worn. The breakfast was...

This was a palace converted into a hotel. Ostentatious, luxurious, royal. A fantastic experience. Located on Nevski Ave walkable from Palace Square and other main sights. Every room is different and brilliantly furnished. One felt like royalty ascending those stairs to go up for breakfast on the second floor restaurant. An experience not to be missed is dinner at the...

This was once a real palace with an interesting history and the restoration and conversion to a hotel is superb. All the public areas are grand and impressive and my room was huge. Three large windows, chairs, tables, a separate study area. Breakfasts were varied and delicious and so were dinners, in the sixth floor restaurant, where a pianist added...

Just stayed at this fabulous hotel whilst visiting St Petersberg. I've stayed at some top hotels during my travels but this one is up there in the top three or four. Couldn't fault any aspect of my stay. Amazing rooms, stunning reception and dining rooms, great leisure facilities, delicious food and helpful and pleasant staff. Nothing is ever too much...

An 18th century palace, renovated and extended in an immaculate fashion. Corridors and stairs run all over the place to give it a unique feel. The decor is sumptuous stopping just short of going over the top, although four twenty foot high statues near reception are perhaps pushing the boundaries of good taste just a little. Our room, 422 was...

No faults in our stay. Our family had adjoining bedrooms with spotless, modern bathrooms. Very good nights sleep in large, comfortable beds. Great breakfast. Helpful staff throughout. Central location, 5-10 minutes walk from major tourist destinations and good restaurants. Superb, rooftop swimming pool.

Stayed here for 4 nights and found the location excellent for sight seeing. The hotel has an unusual lay out as it was formally a private residence but the interior is of high quality and spotlessly clean. Hot breakfast choice includes bacon, sausage and cooked to order eggs and the usual continental stuff. I used the sauna and pool as...
