The Domina Hotel is a new, boutique hotel located on the bank of the river Moyka (the Moyka is the closest one of several rivers and canals to the Great Neva) within 500 - 1000 yards of the major sights. The nearest are the St. Isaac's Dome and the Admiralty building. In addition, there are trolleybus and bus stops about 50 yards from the hotel that will take you to the Nevskyy Prospekt (the Main Drag, so to speak) and there you can reach shopping, the Russian Museum, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic or change to reach the Eremitage and all other central locations very easily with minimum walking. The Mariinskyy (formerly Kirov) Theater is located in the opposite direction on the bus lines.
The hotel itself is near-new, quiet and very well kept with more than adequate front desk and concierge services - they even called taxis for us that arrived on time and were metered and reasonably priced by Russian standards (don't try this elsewhere!)
There are several reasonably priced restaurants nearby: we particularly liked Teplo (Warmth) a few steps across the street.
We found the hotel perfect for our stay - a little professional work and mostly sightseeing, museums and ballet/concert visits.
All but our room #214 - we arried at 8 am from an o/n train from Moscow, so we got probably the smallest room with a low ceiling that looked a bit like a red-green hobbit hole
No complaints about the hotel at all except for the silly name - maybe they should call it Domino instead
