Currently staying at Nash and am a bit surprised by all the rave reviews. I last visited St.Petersburg as a student in 1981 and find much has changed for the better. I recall missing last orders in the hotel restaurant at 7:00 and being forbidden food for the night by scary looking women who stood no nonsense from the young and hungry. When an older, but equally hungry version of myself recently sought food here it was a huge relief not only to find the Nash restaurant open, but a smiling young lady was ready to take food orders as late as 9:00. However, the food here is expensive and the chicken club sandwich was inedible. Not surprisingly, we were the only diners. We researched well but could find absolutely no good restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel. It's a good half hour's walk from the city centre to the hotel. The metro takes longer and is far less pleasant than the walk. After a long day of sightseeing the last thing we felt like doing in the evening was going back into the city centre. Sadly, it didn't feel safe at night, about the same as the London Underground on Saturday night - fine if you know what you're doing and admittedly we didn't here.
I guess the Nash provides good value, but I would have rather paid more for a central location had I known about the problem with food in the evening.
One thing I remember from student days here that shows little,if any,improvement is the plumbing. The shower was either scalding hot or freezing cold so we dodged in and out when we could.
A final gripe and I'm done! We thought the breakfast was just about ok but with everything seeming a bit stale.
So...modern improvements include the hotel staff - all lovely. WiFi excellent speed and free (am currently using it!) Comfortable clean beds, air con (which works) inexpensive mini bar.
When I was a student I would have thought this was heaven!
I think the Nash is missing an opportunity. Surely we aren't the only ones disappointed with the food in the locality? If it provided great food at a sensible price I think people would flock to its doors.
