Hello All -
I will be traveling to St. Petersburg next month and am needing information/recommendations on traveling from the airport to my hotel - the Renaissance - located in the city center.
What is the best way for me to get there - limo, taxi, etc.? The trip will be with the constraints that I do not speak Russian (although am working on my phrases) and the company is paying for it, so if a 2500 Ruble limo ride is the safest and easiest way, fine.
If limo service is best, can you recommend a service as well as provide contact information if not easily found on the web.
If taxi is the best mode, please let me know the basics on how to reserve one when leaving the airport as well as an approximate cost as I know rates must be negotiated up front. Also, if taxi is the best way, will I be able to negotiate and direct without speaking Russian? (Most likely by handing the driver a piece of paper with the cost, hotel name and address.)
Thanks in advance.
