We stayed at the Pushka Inn for 6 nights in late October during our first visit to St. Petersburg. The location is perfect - very close to The Hermitage and within walking distance of all the major sights. This hotel is not luxurious but it is very clean, the rooms are modern, very comfortable and well appointed and the entire hotel is non-smoking. We had a suite on the fourth floor which was well designed and very comfortable with a combined kitchen, dining and living area and a separate bedroom. Although there were no windows, there were 4 large sky lights which were easily opened and had shades to block out the light. We were not bothered by street or canal noise but we were definitely off season. The staff was extremely personable and helpful, giving us excellent directions to Catherine's Palace by public transportation - metro and mini-bus (a bit of a challenge, but a worthwhile adventure). We enjoyed the restaurant for breakfast offering both European and American choices and also ate two other meals there The food and service were very good, staff very personable, and we appreciated its accessibility.
We arranged for a private guide for our first morning. He was excellent, highly educated, speaks excellend English. we explored the city on foot which gave us a great overview for the next few days. I took a chance and contacted him based on a Trip Advisor recommendation and I would highly recommend him. We explored on foot for 4 1/2 hours with one stop for coffee but he is flexible and can also arrange a car. His name is Alex and his email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Do not miss Pushkin's apt. which is next door to the hotel but easily missed. We also attended an excellent concert (orchestra and chorus) at a small theater one block from the hotel. The staff arranged for the tickets.
