We booked this hotel as a birthday celebration and an opportunity to see St Petersburg including a visit to the opera. From the moment we set foot on the pavement outside The Astoria we were made welcome by attentive and delightful staff. Our room was very spacious and kept clean with a regular change of linen and towels. The bathroom fixtures and fittings are of a high quality. The hotel restaurant served a particularly delicious breakfast with plenty of variety. The staff here were also delightful helping my wife and I as non-Russian speakers with local dishes for our evening meals. (Thank you Olga). They also produced a Christmas stocking on the Orthodox Christmas and a birthday cake. Both complete surprises, thank you.
As an aside, booking tickets on line for the Hermitage Museum and the Opera can save a lot of time standing in the snow!
