I do agree with the review provided by Bright8. Hotel is clean and very convinient, it is situated right in the centte of the historical district, so all major attractions are within easy reach (10 min walk). The metro stop is just around the corner, however, we rarely used it as all major attractions were within easy reach. Rooms are bright and clean, the breakfast is good - other then cold meats/cheese/toasts you can also get fryed eggs. eggs with sausage or outmeal boiled in milk (quite tasty). There are also tea, coffee, juice, milk, yogurt, cereal. Quite filling.
Although the room is cleaned up every day, they do not change towels every day (every 3 days or so). The rooms do not have good sound proofing, so this probably is biggest concern. However, the windows are new and no noise is heard from the streets.
Transfer is available to/from airport or train station - we paid only 30$ for transfer from the airport.
The area is great and there plenty of eating places around. I can perhaps recommend the Dumpling place at Gorohovaya st., 3 (across from Admiralty). There are also plenty of Bakery places around in St.Peterburg so you can enjoy various russian pies (with apple, cabbage, meat, chicken, etc. you name it!)
For the english tours to Petergoff and Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin) go to the Gostinnyi Dvor on Nevsky - Look for Ecclectica Tours (http://www.eclectica-guide.ru/rec/rec.php). Tours are 60-90$ per person and are very good.
Overall this hotel is clean, cheap and has great location.
