We spend 3 days at the Vasilievsky hotel. The hotel is very much like sokos hotels in Finland, clean, new and quite modern, but expensive. Beautiful room, must say, was quite small though, but had a bathtub. Our room was facing the other rooms (no courtyard), so it was a very quiet one. The hotel has one of the fastest elevators I've even been in.
The staff is very young and quite unexperienced -some of them had their first day at work. Spoke good English but the Russian style of working "takes time". Also the cleaners had forgotten to take out the caps on soaps and bring new bottles of water.
The location could be better, the drive to Nevski prospect gets to be expensive..
