We had a fantastic view of the Church of our Saviour of Spillled Blood and the Museum. This hotel is located just off the Nevsky Prospekt and seems to be quite well known by the taxi drivers in St Petersburg as we just needed to mention the name of the hotel. It is also close to the Hermitage, St Isaacs Cathedral and other well known attractions. The only place we needed to travel to was Catherines Palace which is about 30- 40 kms from the hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. We did not get a chance to use the spa facilities however the sauna looked very inviting. We were there for White Nights and also lost track of the time but found the numerous restaurants so close to the hotel great as we did not have to venture far. St Petersburg is a magical city and this is a truly splendid hotel.
