We stayed here two nights. The hotel is top class, very clean and high quality. The room is comfortable with air-conditioning, flat-panel TV and all the other usual facilities. Our room (366) was on the backyard side, it is a long walk from the elevator but very quiet because there is no-one passing the door in the corridor.
The spa is free if you are staying in the hotel. It was very nice pool area, one pool has cold water (should be 10C degree but it was much warmer), jacuzzis etc. There are several sauna as well; hot steam, russian log, hammam, cave sauna and even a snow room, which has -15C degree! You can easily spend 3 hours trying the different saunas and pools or just relaxing.
The hotel has two restaurants. Sevilla which is a spanish style (brand restaurant for Sokos Hotels) and Dans le Noir, which is pitch dark with blind waiters. We would have liked to try the dark restaurant but the Sevilla is open later in the night so we picked that one. There was a buffet dinner available for 1000 roubles. It had almost everything you could wish for, not exquisite but good and plenty. The a la carte was available as well but it seemed that whatever you picked the price would be about the same as the buffet. Anyway, I wanted to have artichoke risotto and it turned out to be very good. Mellow with mild tastes flavoured with saffron (I suppose). And the portion was big, I could not finish it.
The breakfast buffet was plentiful with everything you normally have for breakfast and more. Excellent.
The location is also good. The Eremitage and Nevski Prospect are within walking distance (less than 30 mins). It is faster to walk in rush hour than use a car or taxi or bus.
We will definitely return to St Petersburg and this hotel would be our top choice.
