In the last two years, I have stayed at Hotel Vera 2 times to meet with my friends from university.
We are not very young anymore, and greatly appreciated the care, warmth and comfort which Hotel Vera staff created for us.
We had no problems with cabs ordered by the desk staff to go to theaters and concerts, and back to the hotel. One however has to be aware that the cab fees need to be known and agreed upon in advance - the staff at the front desk will tell you what it should be. Breakfast is really tasty and they periodically offer delicious homemade items, like an apple strudel or Russian style pancakes. Espresso or cappuccino that you order at the bar is always good and priced very reasonably compared to prices elsewhere for inferior coffee.
in general Café Vera is good and everything we tried was quite tasty and reasonably priced. The beef medallions "medium rare" need special mention. We went o Paris after St. Petersburg and had dinner in a well known restaurant specializing in entrecotes: Café Vera medallions were better!!!
Hotel Vera is very nice and charming place, and if one plans to spend a few days on a trip with good friends there is hardly any place as homely and welcoming.
