As we were going in the midst of winter, we wanted something very central in the historic heart and this decision really paid off since, unusually it seems, it was about - 22 for most of our stay! The hotel is excellently and centrally located just off the pretty river Moyki. The Church of the Spilled Blood is about 3 minutes walk away and you can see it's spires from the hotel restuarant. As other people have noted, the Hermitage and Nevsky Prospect are also within 10-15 mins walk as is Peter and Paul Fortress. Despite the extreme cold, we were close enough to all the main sites for us to walk it (and therefore close enough to nip back to the Hotel if we needed to warm up!). The room and en suite bathroom were very clean, sufficiently spacious and very comfortable - things that should be fairly standard but are not always, so worth commenting on we thought. The only odd thing was that we could not get sound on our TV for any English language channels (e.g. BBC news) but only for Russian ones. We meant to ask the Hotel about this (possibly it's a simple remote control issue) but never got round to it - we weren't there to watch TV anyway. The room was generally quiet. The hotel itself is in a blissfully quiet spot despite being so central. The only noise we heard seemed to filter through from the hotel restaurant one night (it or the kitchen was directly below our room we think) but the noise was limited and didn't disturb us. The staff are friendly and speak excellent English. This was very useful as we speak no Russian and we would otherwise have struggled to book restaurants and our trip to a banya etc. We booked taxi airport transfers via the hotel and each time the driver was friendly and professional and charged only what the hotel had warned us he'd charge - though we tipped our arrival transfer driver as he effectively gave us a narrated tour of the city on the way to the hotel (a lovely, positive start to the trip). We didn't try the hotel breakfast so can't comment on that. It was extra and there are so many nice little cafes around that we preferred to just get out exploring and find our own places to eat. We did have lunch in the restaurant on our last day and were happy with our Borsh and the excellent views from the cafe. We stayed for 7 nights (longer than needed for most city breaks in summer but it being frigidly cold outside and there being limited daylight hours we found that this worked out perfectly - we could always have used any spare days to visit some of the palaces outside the city). We got the room on a 'long stay/seasonal' discount rate, which helped as it was a bit outside our normal price range. We felt that we'd picked the perfect hotel for us and if we are ever back in St Petersburg, we would happily stay there again.
