I stayed here recently for three nights and chose the hotel for it's convenient location just off Nevesky Prospect, one of the main central roads.
The rooms are small, not ideal for a couple other than a short visit although it was clean with a good modern bathroom and excellent free wifi. Breakfast was fine, the staff pleasant and the Receptionists charming and very helpful. My street view room was not at all noisy and offered a better view than of the courtyard. The hotel provided a first class taxi driver.
The city is stunning with a beautifully preserved central area replete with fine Neo Classical architecture, opulent former palaces, extravagant churches all criss crossed by canals and magnificent sea views. Many excellent restaurants within walking distance, food prices about 30% less than London equivalents.
The locals were courteous but somewhat reserved and at the tourist attractions occasionally overwhelmed by the thousands of visitors so expect long queues.
