This hotel is great from any point of view: the service, the style of the ambient, the quality of the restaurants. But what I appreciated most is the unusually good sound insulation among the rooms, probably due to the old building criteria for such an historical palace.
Located at a corner of the Nevsky Prospect, close to two Metro station and at a walking
distance from the Hermitage and other major attractions, this hotel is a top choice for visiting S. Petersburg. It is on the expensive side, but if you afford it, it is worth of it.
Its Europe Restaurant has two remarkable "events": on Sunday, there is a great Jazz Brunch, and on Thursday there is "Ballet Dinner", with dancers and classical music. These events, once more, are worth of the money you may pay for them.
