“hotel in heart of city”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We were 5 freinds travelling together for 2 days in St Petersburg and were happy to be located to this nice hotel near Neva river banks.
Hotel was in two old buildings connected to each other by a atrium space with bar and restaurant in it.
We had a nicely furnished and clean rooms though not any river view.
The breakfasts vere plentiful and rich and one could choose from pastries, cereals, eggs, salads etc according one's taste. Service in restaurant was good too.
The only backlash was the safe in the rooms. My friend and I were forced to change three times the room before the safe there was activated properly .It took us one and a half hours to be setteled down because of this misshap. I would have expected the hotel of this quality to check their rooms properly before letting the new guests in to them.

Stayed two nights on a business trip. Hotel location was very good for us. Hotel staff was really helpful, the rooms very comfortable, quite big and clean. Wifi worked everywhere all the time. The view was not the best. Breakfast was ok in russian standards. Will come here again.

On check in I was told we were given a free upgrade. Room was very spacious, tea and coffee making facilities (which were't replenished without asking), lacking in cupboard and wardrobe space. 20 minute walk to The Hermitage. Hotel very quiet during the day and evening but at breakfast there were lots of Japanese tourists. Breakfast was adequate. Drinks and snacks in the bar were expensive, a small beef burger with fries was 750 rubbles (£16). To ventilate our room at night we left the balcony window open and both my wife and I suffered mosquito bites which you don't really expect in autumnal mid September. Staff as friendly as Russians can be.

The hotels is situated near a metro station, so you do not need a taxi to go to the center. The staff speaks english and the restaurant is ok. Do prepare yourself to pay extra for the breakfast and even for the small snacks in the restaurant.

The hotel was excellent. The room was quite large and comfortable though it did not have much of a view. What really made the hotel excellent was the saunas and swimming pool area. We visited it almost every night and I think its the best way to relax and recover after a long day of walking and doing tourist things. They have 9 different saunas and I especially enjoyed the sauna they call a sanatorium. It has a milder temperature and higher humidity than a typical Finish Sauna.

The breakfast had a large variety of food which we also really enjoyed.

It is necessary to note that this hotel is not particularly close to any subways - there are 2 within walking distance but it takes 10 - 15 minutes to get there. We were not confident enough to try a bus.


None the less I think the pleasure of the spa is worth the extra walking and once you are on the subway system you are close to everything.

The Hotel was stunning, an innovative mix between classic architecture and modern glass design. Wherever you looked there was something intriguing.
Although a little way out of the city center, we quite enjoyed this. Only a 15-20 minute walk to all of the main sights wasn't a hardship for us, but what we gained from being out of the center was excellent. If this hotel was in the center, it would have been much more compact and would in all likelihood not have the spa as the space is a luxury. Walking out of the city after a hard day sightseeing on your feet, and to be able to walk into the spa was just idyllic.
The Breakfast had a good range of styles, was just a little busy at peak time (but what do you expect!), and the one night we ate in the "Tapas" restaurant was an excellent meal - although not really very tapas, more just Spanish themed.
The thing that let it down a little for us was the service. For a 3-4* hotel, I would expect the concierge to be a little more knowledgeable and friendly than they were. To the point that as we arrived before our room was ready, we asked where we could go out and get Breakfast in St Petersburg. We were told that nothing is open and were directed to a 24/7 Chinese restaurant. It was 9.30am...not what I would call early. And on investigation, there was plenty open in the center.
All in all, an excellent stay, and the Spa truly is a gem!
