Well located in a residential neighborhood within a short walk to Nevsky Prospekt (main shopping street), metro, train station and around the corner from a bus stop. Close to mayor's residence, foreign consulates and the home of the U.S. Consulate General for St. Petersburg. Elegantly renovated and decorated with wireless internet that actually works. Terrific value for the various room types with eager bilingual staff that can arrange for restaurant reservation, car service and guides as well as deal with any issues that come up. Note that in St. Petersburg taxis don't have meters and you should/must negotiate the fare in advance which can vary several fold for the same trip/distance; the car service arranged through Hotel Vera turned out to be the best while being the cheapest of any that we used in the city. Hotel Vera can also arrange for a knowledgeable personal guide, which turned out to be a true bargain. Ask for Emma, she knows the city inside and out, loves it and can provide a running commentary and backstory to the various palaces, monuments and historical sites throughout the city and environs. My wife, daughter and I had a great time and we look forward to coming back.
