I stayed with my husband in this hotel for a week. I think that the main points are the location, because it is close enough to the Hermitage for a good walk and just 3 or 4 blocks walking from the Church on Split Blood, from the boat trips and from the metro, not to mention other attractions that are not that expressive, but worthy visiting.
Besides that, the building is quite charming and has a wonderful restaurant, were we had our best caviar experience, accompanied by a trio that played Russian music with a soul. The singer was very good and help to make our dinner romantic and special. i would recommend to go there even if you are not in the hotel.
The service in general could be better, but this other points made up for the minor problems we had. Breakfast was full of options, really good.
