I have stayed in various hotel in St. Petersburg but this was the the first time in this hotel. We had a group of 9 and all had superior rooms in the 6th floor. Our room was in the front and the noise coming from air-conditioning system was so loud that my husband had to sleep with earplugs.
The breakfast was reasonable, better than in some hotel where I have stayed. However we often had to sit on the table that hadn't been cleared after previous people.
The hotel in itself is well located near metro station although we walked to most of the destinations. The closest place of interest is Dostoevsky museum and statue which is just few hundred meters away from the hotel.
There are lots of good restaurants near the hotel so me and my husband did not use the hotel restaurant at all apart from having few drinks in one of the evenings in Raskolnikov bar. However the rest of our group ate in the restaurant on the day we were leaving and found the service very slow. One of the group member had waited for his meal for over an hour and did not get it all as we had to rush for our train to Helsinki. They also refused to give money back for the meal he never had and did not want to understand that he would miss his train if he has to wait for the meal any longer.
Our stay in this hotel was ok and the staff in the reception were friendly and helpful.
