This is a brand new hotel located a block from St. Isaac's cathedral. Our hotel room was two-story, with a loft, and overlooked a canal. The hotel is extremely quiet -- I was surprised how many people were at breakfast. We never heard other residents. You can hear the canal tours through the window, but muted and not a problem.
The breakfast was excellent. Cappuccinos appeared instantly when you asked. A wide variety of breakfast foods including french bread, croissants, eggs, sausage, potatoes, cereals, feta -- catering to all nationalities. The staff, in fact all of the hotel staff, were extremely helpful.
The room colors are bright, ours was shades of green with purple accents. Although it sounds garish, we soon came to love the uniqueness.
Our room was cleaned twice daily, and the house staff was both invisible and quite good.
The only downsides were two: 1) shower ran low of hot water one day and 2) the staff was using gasoline (!) to clean the stairs one day. The smell in the stairwell was bad.
Location was in walking distance of everything -- Peter the Great's statue, cathedrals, the Hermitage, and the main shopping district. As an aside, if you go out the back of the hotel through the excellent restaurant you are right at Nabokov's childhood home.
