I stayed in this hotel for business. The location is so perfect that makes you want to go out day and night, which of course I did outside of the business meetings.
The hotel is really historic, about a century old. I heard it used to be a municipal building or a hosital in the beginning of the last century, and survived through the Revolution and the War. The wide corridors, high ceilings and the centrally located old-style elevator, surrounded by circular grand staircase, all give an indication of an old Russian imperial touch...really beautiful!
The classic rooms are not that spacy, yet comfortable enough and immaculately clean. The windows face the Cathedral, Hermitage and all the sights are in the walking distance.
The breakfast is very good with extra stuff like eggs, etc complimentary individual upon order.
I know there is also a sauna, a gym and a good spa, but I didn't get to try them...
The staff is great and excellent consierge service.
I fully recommend this hotel for those who are visiting the beautiful St.Pete.
