A clean and welcoming hotel.
Staff very friendly and helpful, especially Margaritta in reception who speaks excellent english and is only too happy to help you teach a few basic words of Russian.
Take up the hotel on the offer of their transfers from the airport, well worth the money for a safe arrival.
We found St Petersburg a safe place to visit but it was very expensive to eat out and not particulaly worth the money.
The queues at the Hermitage were horrendous (like Disney World at their worst times), make sure you book on line and go directly to the information desk to pick up your entry ticket rather than getting in line with everyone else!
Ask for a courtyard room if you want to get any sleep as Nevesky Prospect is a very busy street.More
