If I could give 6 stars I would. I just have nothing bad to say. Immaculately clean everywhere. Front desk staff all English speaking and eager to assist in any way. My trip to Russia was a celebration of my 25th wedding anniversary and the staff and manager (Anton) made special and much appreciated acknowledgement of that upon our arrival.
I personally liked the location although it is a bit of a trek to a Metro station (but there are very regular buses and trolleys right out the front door that are a five minute ride to a Metro station). Less than 15 minute gorgeous walk over two bridges to The Hermitage and the Peter and Paul Fortress is basically right out the front door.
I would HATE staying on bustling and loud Nievsky Prospekt when something like this was available. This is not a shopping district and I have to admit that a late night craving leaves limited options although there is a nearby 24 hour deli-type store.
We were lucky enough to have a junior suite which was gorgeous and spacious. The bath fixtures were beautiful and modern. Wi-fi was fast and consistent. The breakfast is more than adequate. Don't expect a Las Vegas-style buffet but there is a very reasonable number of choices from fresh fruit to porridge to eggs to cereal to croissants to cold sliced meats and cheeses to items more suited to European tastes (vs. my American one). And again, the dining area is impeccably clean and there is an attendant constantly ensuring fresh coffee and refilling all of the choices. I have been fortunate enough to have stayed in very luxurious hotels and resorts all over the world and I enjoyed this hotel as much as any of them. If you don't need or want big luxury hotels (which I also love and certainly have their appeals), do not hesitate to stay at the Tradition.
