We have been there with another friend couple and enjoyed it both very much. The staff is really friendly, helpful and thoughtful. Our friend just had his birthday during our stay. After coming home at 11 PM from the city he (we) was received with a bottle of Prosecco and fruit plate for a late evening dessert. Really nice and a surprise! The hotel is well located a bit outside the city center and thus calm. The ambient is very special, individual, full of art, books and full of "old memories". For those seeking a modern business style hotel with pool, spa, gym and in-house disco this is not the right place to go. But for those discovering the times of Pushkin, Tolstoi and Tschaikowski this is a perfect match. The closeness to the Marinskij theater and excellent Russian style restaurants like the Sadko facilitates this.
The only point to critisize is the TV in the restaurant running during breakfast which disturbs conversation and relaxation after a good rest in the night. For those guests having an insatiable hunger for news even during vacation - they can watch TV in their rooms.
