Really liked this hotel and thought it gave us great value. The rooms are very nice, with beautiful wood flooring, nice bathrooms, and very comfortable beds. The bar and restaurant are quite nice, bar open til 5am! Every evening they had something going on in the restaurant it seemed, and the food quality was pretty good. The bartenders are great and they offer up some very nice beers on tap as well as all sorts of mixed drinks and booze, and I enjoyed having a nice after dinner drink upon our return from a long day of sightseeing.
The location is not right on Nevsky, but you are only 2 subway stops right from the center, and the area feels local but you can also walk to town in say 20-30 minutes if you so choose. There's a very nice church right down the road too that is worth a visit.
All in all an efficient and well run hotel and also very clean. Would definitely stay here again. Excellent value for money, especially for St. Petersburg and Russia.
-very nice clean rooms
-nice bar and restaurant area
-spa very nice as well
-good wifi service and many international TV channels with nice flatscreen TV
-location is decent - not too far from the center, easy acces via the Metro
-quiet area, not loud at all
-location: as I said, I think it's fine, just a short walk to the subway station that's 2 blocks away, but not a centrally located hotel right on Nevsky. That's ok with me though given the great value this hotel offers - you could walk to the center in 25 minutes if you wanted too. It's really not that far out as the crow flies; (trust me I walked back from the Hermitage);
-bit of an older crowd, there are a lot of tourist groups coming in and out from Spain, Italy, Turkey, Germany etc. Didn't bother me though, was nice to have the restaurant full and the bar fairly busy.Much preferrable to having a bunch of 20-something carousers keeping me up all night
