We just spent a week in St. Petersburg for the White Nights Festival. Tripadvisor served us well in choosing this hotel. The location is ideal--a walk for good walkers, quick water taxi ride, or short regular taxi ride from the heart of the city just across the river, but in an area much quieter due to that. The staff couldn't be more pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was very good, and there is unlimited bottled water, though one would assume that would be provided everywhere in St. Petersburg, where giardia is endemic.
Even though we overlooked the street, the occasional motorcycle was muffled thanks to modern, well-insulated windows. The river side would be the quieter of the two even though there's a street there as well, but we wanted the larger room available on the front side, and were not disturbed while sleeping. The rooms are impeccably clean and modernized; the beds and shower are great, and the high speed internet lives up to its claim.
It is probably the best value in the city, without compromising anything important.
If you stay there, please check out my review of a restaurant steps away called Le Menu.
