The hotel is a modern hotel close to the Moscow station at the east end of Nevsky Prospekt. The Hermitage is walking distance, provided you are prepared to walk for around 45 minutes, which is well worth it for the architecture and sights on the way.
We stayed Friday to Monday and the hotel was busy without seeming overcrowded.
On check in you are required to hand over your passport for them to scan, so be prepared for this. You do get them back and there are safes in the rooms to put them in.
We ate in the Bavarian restaurant on the first night, which was nice. However the Russians do smoke alot! The non smoking area is downstairs, next to the live music and there are smoking tables very close too, so you still end up smelling smoke and it's rather noisy.
Breakfast is also served in the restaurant, but this time smoking is banished downstairs. The spread is good with hot and cold options available.
The rooms are rather basic and small but serve a purpose. They are clean and the bathroom is in good order. In my room I only had a shower, I'm not sure if baths are available.
If you are facing a road or can be noisy at night, but internal facing rooms are quiet.
If you order a taxi by the concierge then expect to pay over the odds, but you can then pay for this at reception or add it to your bill to pay at checkout, which makes it easier. Taxi to the Church on the Spilled Blood cost 750rb and a taxi to the airport cost 1600rb compared to 900rb from the airport.
All in all a good little budget hotel, would class it 3 star rather than the official 4 star, but still a nice base to explore from.
