As I indicated, the hotel is an excellent choice if you want to stay in St Petersburg. The hotel staff is beyond outstanding (6 stars for the staff). They arranged everything for us (taxis, tours, restaurant reservations) and were always very helpful when we changed plans. We would call the staff at stores when we were shopping to help us translate...again, the level of service was definitely beyond 5 stars.
The hotel is located a couple of blocks from the main shopping street, but next to St. Isaacs cathedral. Excellent location, with lots of restaurants nearby, an outstanding bakery across the street and a 24 hour supermarket two doors down. The hop-on, hop-off bus can be picked up at St. Isaacs. Further, St. Isaacs allows you to walk up to the top of the church with excellent 360 degree views of the city at almost all hours of the night and day (I was there from 10pm to 11pm at night...almost always light at this latitude).
The breakfast (included in the room) was outstanding (large american buffet with sausages, eggs, bacon, fruit, cereal, and breads). Other meals were good and reasonably priced, especially since we had come from Moscow.
Service was beyond belief....my wife was wheelchair bound, and the staff ensured that the trip was fantastic, having taxis always available for us at the beginning of the day's trip (with a hotel wheelchair) and at the end of the day's activities. Schedules were constantly changing and the staff was very nice about changing everything for us (Alexandria was fantastic).
Rooms were nice; room service was good...did not try the exercise room.
