It took me a while to write this review as I am a travel journalist and have to write about so many hotels around the World.
Unfortunately I did not stay at the Kempinski in St. Petersburg, but went there for a hotel tour and lunch. Needless to say, it was a mesmerizing experience. The location is everything a tourist could ask for. The hotel is centrally located one block from the Hermitage Museum. It can be seen from the rooftop. The rooftop, besides the rooms and the service, is the highlight of the the hotel. It has 360 degrees unrestricted view to the city and guests can see the Hermitage, the Church of Spill Blood and other sights. Amazing!
The food was excellent. I was able to try the real "Stroganoff' which was more than delicious. The staff was very attentive and corteous without being stuffy.
If you are not staying at the hotel, please reserve a table at the restaurant. Trust me, it will be a magical and memorable experience. Simply put, one of the finest hotels I have been to around the World.
