Stayed at this hotel for a weekend and for the first time in Russia. The hotel is nice and silent, the rooms have a nice modern decor and the front staff is great. It has good security and a box at the Mikhailowsky theater, if you want to see ballet. Even the streets of Petersburg are more safe than New York, Chicago or Barcelona, so I would even invite my grandmother to this hotel and city. It lays a kilometers walk from the Heremitage and it's a bit out side the touristcal area. The good thing about that is that there are several small grocery shops and local restaurants arround and if you fancy a beer, bars aren't that far away either. But the prices of the hotel restaurant are good as well and the place it self is quite cosy. Only the breakfast restaurant is of Norther European standard (read slow), there is no coffee mashine and I had to wait 10 minutes the first day and the 2nd day 30 minutes before I did see a waiter, so that I could get a cup... If breakfast is not included in the room, the price was 850 rubels, a price absolutley fair!
