It's arriving and immediately being recognized as the travellers from the Netherlands and welcomed with "how was your flight".
It's finding a personalised letter in your room explaining that the Babuschka keychain is a gift from the hotel.
It's the triple flags on the desk - The Russian, hotel and Netherlands' flag.
It's the very friendly receptionists with amazingly good English.
Discounts at several restaurants in the area.
And so so so clean, every day.
Other than that, the hotel is in a great location. Right in the middle of everything, very close to the new metrostation Admirality. Walking distance to the theatre, Hermitage and Izaak cathedral around the corner (literally).
Very good and comfortable bed, which was proven by the complete lack of complaints from my mam with her chronic back troubles! Not too soft, not too hard, just right.
If any small remarks:
Some rooms can be bit small, requiring small suitcase or unpacking a big suitcase in the big wardrobe.
And breakfast is just minor cut above a motel breakfast - bread with cheese/egg/meat/jam, porridge (every day different type), muesli with yoghurt/milk and small selection of fruit/cucumber/tomatoes. On the plus side, nothing wrong with the quality and it does prevent from overeating ;-)
In short, great value for money and I would definitely recommend this to any and everyone!
