The Moika has a great location opposite the Hermitage with wonderful views across the city from its 9th floor rooftop bar.My only criticism is that the corridor, on the third floor, stank of stale smoke but once inside our room, which was designated non smoking was fine. The room itself was lovely with excellent bedlinen, nicely furnished and a lovely view of the river. The bathroom was good and the toiletries of a better standard than many hotels. Staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast was excellent but do go through to the dining room to eat for some peace and tranquility. I have no idea why anyone would prefer to eat in the lobby. I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the river.

We got a fantastic deal on this hotel through British Airways and if you get the chance then I would suggest you do the same. A top notch hotel that provides you with everything you need, ideally situated within a stone's throw of the Winter Palace and a breakfast (included for us) that is simply superb. As you'd expect prices are a little high for services not included (Breakfast if not included is £45), bar etc. but the Spa area is free for residents and is an excellent facility but my value rating is based on what I paid for a 4 night stay. Highly recommended.

Booking a 5 day trip through British airways we got this accommodation at an unbelievably good rate, just a couple of hundred pounds for 5 nights.

The service is outstanding, the rooms are exceptionally clean, spacious and very well serviced twice daily. There is complimentary wifi across the building which works with good speed and a complimentary spa, jacuzzi, steam room etc. on the top floor.

Highlight of the stay must be there hot breakfast + buffet. If you have the options ensure you get this with your stag as prices are very high if you are paying on the day. Champagne, caviar, juices squeezed in front of you, vast selection of cold meats and the likes, delicious pastires! Literally has it all :-D!

I would not hesitate to stay here again and am looking to find another Kempinski to stay in on the next city breaks

Have stayed three times on business this year.

Excellent Roof bar and restaurant, good service throughout the Hotel.

Grand Hotel Europe has the best bar in SPB, Four Seasons was quiet but will improve, and W Hotel OK if you like strange colours.

Pity the smoking ban will be in effect next year !

The Kempinski has a great location and, if you can afford it, makes a superb base for discovering St Petersburg. I had the pleasure of staying for 10 days.
The doormen and reception staff were welcoming and very helpful. My room was clean and tidy, and serviced twice each day.
Breakfast was good quality, with plenty of variety. Some staff excellent and attentive, some seemed determined to avoid communicating which made it hard to get coffee on a couple of mornings. Our rate included buffet lunches and dinners, which were OK, but not up to the standard of breakfast.
The bar was, I have to say, very expensive at about £50 for a round of drinks for three people.
Would I stay again? I would love to!
