I loved the old world charm of this 5-Star hotel in the heart of St. Petersburg. The ambience is charming and the service was exceptional. From the doormen, the Bell Captain, the reception desk, the waiters & waitresses, and the spa staff -- the customer service was par excellence.
The location of this hotel is close to the main street of the city and within walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and attractions. Still, I found it very quiet and was able to sleep well (I stayed on the 6th floor).
The breakfast buffet was amazing and catered to all cultures and tastes. My dinner at Rossi restaurant, though, was less than expected from this otherwise great establishment.
Still, I highly recommend this hotel and hope you'll consider it for your trip to Russia!
