This is one of those modern trendy hotels that will inspire mixed feelings: either love it or hate it. From my side, it was one of my best experiences east of the “Iron Curtain”.
The location is perfect, right by the Palace Square and the Hermitage. The view from the terrace is simply fantastic.
The decoration is very trendy and minimalist, with rather dark tones. In the lifts and common areas, there is dance/chillout music playing non-stop. Again, one can love it or hate it…
The bedrooms are classy, cozy, with heavenly bed and top of the class linens. The best shower I have ever experienced and quality amenities.
Breakfast was very good, with large choice of pastries, cheeses, fruits, cereals, eggs, juices. All top quality.
I had dinner in their restaurant: an excellent risotto, and in the terrace: fresh salmon variations. Food was just great and the wine list in both places clearly deserves to be highlighted.
The staff was all very friendly and ready to run the extra mile for their clients.
It was a wonderful experience and the W became my choice when staying in St. Petersburg.
