This very small classic style hotel is a great find. There are no signs on the street, (to access you have to ring a small bell on the Karavannaja street enterance) so the finding part can be challenging. But when you do, you've got yourself a room on the most important street and all the essential places you might want to see in St Peterburg are very close (15 mins walk to the Ermitage, city bus tours begin 20 m from the place, shopping and metro station right next to the hotel). The quality of the beds is good, the service is good (make time for the a la carte breakfast). If, like me, you are not interested in a lot of extras - pools, gym, lobbybars, it is quite perfect. Rooms are of very different sizes, so ask specifically for a larger one if you need it.
The only thing to be careful about - if you're a light sleeper you might be bothered by the noise from traffic/peolpe on Nevski coming in through the windows. And this is at all hours and the only way to escape it is to have a room facing the courtyard. Myself and colleagues slept well though, even with windows to the main street.
They have free wireless and the photos displayed here are quite accurate.
