Can't tell you how much we loved this hotel. On arrival our terrace room was upgraded to a suite (#509) with a terrace that stretched around a corner with a full view of the Russian Museum and the extraordinary Church of the Spilled Blood. As I had noted that it was our anniversary trip we received a complimentary bottle of Russian Champagne (it is very good!) and some strawberries - a lovely touch and very much appreciated. The room was generously sized with a good bathroom. A few things didn't work (nespresso machine) but they were attended to promptly when you asked. The public areas of the hotel are wonderful and the food is of a high standard. We ate in several of the restaurants but our favourite was the bar - just spending the long white nights in that wonderful environment was very Russian.
From start to finish this grand hotel was fabulous and I appreciated the assistance of the excellent reservations manager (Daria) when making enquiries by email.More
