Domina Hotel St Petersburg
Having read the reviews about the decor I wasn't sure what to expect but it is BOLD , modern in a kitschy sort of way. You must like red & flocked wallpaper! Particularly on the 6th floor. Other floors are also colour coordinated.
Check in was easy but they take your passports & visa forms issued at the airport.
Rooms were very distinctive too but with great facilities including robes & slippers. Minibar expensive as usual. Bottled water there for free in room & bathroom, maybe because they don't recommend drinking the water. Views were limited it seems to overlooking the central atrium or the road but that's not important. Situated by the river & good access to sights, all walkable. Take good walking shoes.
Really good selection for the buffet breakfast with lots of fresh fruit. Try the different meats, fish & cakes. Food labelled in both Russian & English. Staff very chilled yet efficient & of course spoke or understood English.
Room service had a good selection & not exorbitant prices. Likewise the restaurant. They often had functions but you could get the food in the bar. They were very flexible. They did a 4 part menu of the day for 550 roubles, salad, soup, main & tea or coffee. It was a set menu but good value. Alexander the bartender was very helpful indeed. He had no reason to apologise for his English as my Russian consists of one word!
Before we came we did some research on the weather & expected late summer temperatures however the weather in St Petersburg is SO unpredictable. We were cold & it rained so summer clothes were layered & sandals allowed the water to pass through!
They have a film night. We were the only ones interested so we watched it an hour later than scheduled & in English.
They say do not drink the water & so bottled water is in the rooms including the bathroom to clean your teeth.
If you want to put items on your room you will need to put down a deposit first of all.
We are loving our stay here! Booked through Baltic Travel so I think we got a good deal.
