Very Good service - The reception staff are always friendly and accommodating, they all converse in English very well and they are always willing to assist with additional information and requests. The hotel is clean and accommodating and the rooms are comfortable and modern, they are bright and airy, with great views over the Fontanka River. (Specify that you want a room overlooking the River as the other side of the passage overlooks the courtyard which is not a great view and can do with a bit of cleaning up and upgrading)The Hotel is in a great Location and most amenities are within easy walking distance from the hotel, a great place to be based to explore St Petersburg. Breakfast is good however the selection and manner in which eggs are served needs rethinking.
The Bar and Restaurant staff could take a lesson from Reception - They are not as friendly (this is not all the restaurant and bar staff but the majority of them) as the other staff in the hotel spek very broken english and they tend to always be hidden behind the Bar where they are out of sight of general view. They sit on Crates on the floor and very seldom appear above the bar - when you need something you have to go looking for them behind the bar. Breakfast was ok but can be improved however is substantial. The Menu in the restaurant could use more variation and the food does(Falls devistatingly short) not taste as good as it sounds on the menu descriptions. However there are some Great Restaurant nearby that deserve a mention a Traditional Russian Restaurant serving Russian Cuisine, A traditional German Restaurant Jager Haus Kneipe and Ollies Pizza and Pasta about 1km walk from the hotel.
