The Baltic Star Hotel is the property of the Administration of the President of Russia. Though it was built in 2000's it feels a bit from Soviet era.
There is a gym and a swimming pool in the basement, and there is a lot of space to run around the hotel, the air is very fresh. The rooms are not bad - with solid furniture, nice view from the window and quite clean.
The food is awful and quite expensive (breakfast is included - they don't even have green tea), I would recommend to have your lunch or dinner in Saint-Petersburg.
Actually Baltic Star is situated not in S.Petersburg but in Strelna, which is the suburb about 30-40 min. car drive from the city-center. It's not a five-star hotel but the prices for staying are not very high, so if you wish to see Konstantinovsky Palace or have some conference there, it's not a bad place. Thus it's a nice hotel for tourists or businessmen at quite a reasonable price.
