We recently visited St Petersburg and stayed at the Happy Pushkin. From a location perspective the hotel was brilliantly situated and we were able to walk to all the places of interest on our list. The staff were friendly and accommodating, however, I would not call it a boutique hotel as we know it. The decor was garish and not at all 'minimalist' which is what you tend to think of in association with boutique hotels and although comfortable the room was quite small and extremely hot. This might have been because we were in an attic room. The room for breakfast was also very small and quite difficult to manoeuvre once a few tables were taken. Having said that, the breakfast (once you managed to to get to where it was laid out) was excellent with a wide variety to choose from. I ordered fried eggs from the optional menu which was a bonus but they might want to invest in a new toaster as by the time mine was ready the eggs were cold. Although we had booked several tours, the staff were helpful when we wanted to book additional tours at the Hermitage.
