Selected this hotel because we wanted to celebrate my husband’s birthday at this very place, in the very middle of this beautiful city. After reading some reviews we realized the place is very proper for the occasion. And first of all we must thank the staff of the hotel for the holiday they organized for us.
We got the best room: not only with the view (the Saint Isaac's Cathedral), but also with a balcony (room 315)! Double doors block the room perfectly well from the possible corridor noise.
We were lucky with the weather, but not only with it. The welcome greetings were warm and pleasant (complimentary water every day, some fruit and sparkling wine), good Wi-Fi connection, nice Carita toiletries, ideal room service and cleaning, good recommendations on the restaurants (The Stroganoff restaurant is a must, just 5 min away, ask the concierge for the reservation), umbrellas in the room, enough room for the luggage, really good hair dryer (ladies, you know what I mean), lots of nice and touching details all around.
Our special thanks to the staff for the birthday cake and warm greetings! It was very nice and lovely. And it really made our holiday unforgettable!
Don’t miss delicious breakfast or afternoon tea in the hotel. They worth it.
The only minus of our stay was the Angleterre restaurant: absolutely inattentive chef and boring food, but again, it was all our fault (and our own choice based on some internet reviews from the Angleterre site). You should better listen to the Astoria staff recommendations!
Thanks again! We would definitely come back!
