We reserved the least expensive room. Our thought was a hotel with such a high rating meant it, and any of its rooms, would be all right, - wrong. . The room had a nice sized entry and bath. The sleeping area was like a telephone booth with two beds. The floor covering (cork?) was worn out. We felt five nights in that room would severely detract from our enjoyment of St. Petersburg. We upgraded to what was left, a suite, and it is sweet.
The hotel starts on the second floor. The smell of the adjacent restaurant greets you. Next to the reception area is a small common room with a machine that makes fresh coffee, and other hot drinks, one cup at a time, plus a microwave, and hot pot. Our rooms had small frigs, that were minibar size, but empty, thankfully. There was no coffee, etc. in the rooms.
Breakfast was a solid 2, if not 1. As I write this, we have been on the road for six weeks, in six different countries, and this is the poorest breakfast we have had. The ones in the states rival it for inadequacy, but it is a close call.
Someone, from the states, told us he had spent the morning looking at other hotels, and came back to this one, as the best for the buck.
Based on the high marks, others have given this hotel, maybe I expect too much. I doubt that, because after booking hotels in 50 countries, including in two other Russian cities, I feel confident this hotel is a two star. Therefore, before booking here, I suggest being sure you cannot do better elsewhere.
