Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early December. The location is certainly excellent, within walking distance of most of the main tourist sights of St. Petersburg with Nevsky Prospekt being 5 mins stroll. There are many restaurants, bars and shops nearby. There is a metro stop right next door to the hotel and another metro stop across the road. This is an average tourist grade hotel and so you probably get what you pay for. Long yellow corridors which seem to go on for miles. The standard twin/double room is a good size,clean and adequate for staying a few nights. Very old TV unit with only Russian channels. Didn't look as though the air con would work as the vent was all tapped up - maybe this was to stop draughts but cannot be sure as we did not need to use it. Next to the hotel is a small shopping mall with basement supermarket if you need water etc. Reception are helpful and friendly and able to book taxi for return journey to airport. Our taxi from the airport was 900 roubles but the return booked through the hotel was 1600 roubles, there is not much you can do about that unless you speak Russian and can order your own taxi. Our main complaint would probably be the breakfast. It is of a poor standard. If you are someone that enjoys a nice breakfast or even a good selection of rolls or pastries you certainly be disappointed. There are over 200 rooms in this hotel and the breakfast room must be a nightmare when it is peak season. The hotel was not busy when we visited and so getting a table was not a problem. Adjacent to the hotel is a lovely English bakery where you can get coffee, cake or sandwiches. There is wifi in the hotel but you must purchase it from the reception.
