I've been doing some traveling in Europe in December to see few places - got a tip from my NYC friends who get around a bit. I got to St. Petersburg after staying a few days in Prague. St. Petersburg is an awesome city! I wish I had more than 5 days here. I didn't know much about the place (...usual stuff - tips from friends and a lonely planet).
It was a shocker to find out that you cannot afford much of accommodation for less than a grand with the main hotel chains. I tried couple of places and gave up. Then I found Altburg - that was an awesome discovery! The place is small and cozy, it is directly on the main street (Nevsky), but is hidden away from the noise by a small yard. Service was very good (not much English though). My room was excellent and the location you cannot beat. If ever again in St. Pete, will stay with you guys.
