We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights in December. We booked a junior suite for us three. the room was really really big, it had a dining room with a fridge, a living room with a couch, a desk, and a small tv, and the bedroom with two large beds, heaters in all three rooms that worked incredibly well. there was a bathroom in all three rooms, however two of them were locked up (no clue why) and only the one in the bedroom was open. it smelled really bad and was not very clean, the soap ran out and due to language barrier, we couldn't get more soap and had to buy our own. on the third night the bathroom roof started leaking and smelling really bad, they were very quick and polite to respond and changed us to a new room. this new room was very clean but substantially smaller with only one room. given the language barrier we decided to stay, but the heater in the room didn't work and it got very cold in the room as the temperature in the atrium was -9C, they gave us one of the portable heaters that were used out in the courtyard, which did the job but made our nights very uncomfortable. we got told that such room was in fact a Jr Suite so we didn't fight it. apart from that big inconvenience, the hotel is very well located, right by the river, within walking distance from Hermitage and St Isaac's, very convenient. The staff was very very polite, however spoke very little english. Breakfast was alright, nothing fancy, but not bad. the room was not easy to find however, it's at the very top floor. nightly rates were also very cheap which is why we went with that option. the overall experience was alright, however, we were glad our stay was over
