When checking in, we were told that there had been an issue with their computer system and they didn't have the room we had booked. They said they would put us in a nicer room, but wanted to know if it was ok if we moved to our booked room the next day. We told them we didn't want to have to change rooms and they said ok and let us stay in the better room for the complete stay of 3 days. Room was extremely nice and clean. Staff was extremely helpful with any questions we had and went out of their way to find out information that they didn't know when we initially asked. Hotel has an electronic money exchange machine in the lobby which I highly recommend using if you need to exchange currency. Just a note, the hallway lighting was a little dark which I personally didn't care for, but I think it is supposed to part of the decor. Hotel is within walking distance to Red Square. I would recommend this hotel. I also recommend the double decker tour buses. The price is good and you can get off and on the bus on it's route as much as you like for two days. You can get off and walk around and then go back to any stop on the route and get back on the bus. You get headphones and the tour guide is in multiple languages. You can purchase your tickets anywhere you see the bus. We purchased ours at Red Square.

Wonderful experience in this hotel located in a historical building, centrally located (doesn't get any more central), and with a long history of being a reputable establishment. If you like modern, ultra sleek hotel, then this place is not for you. If you want to soak up in history, then this is your place. The lobby is phenomenal and simply doesn't get any better. The rooms are traditional as would be expected to be consistent with the hotel style. The location is very central, yet I was relieved to find out that there is no noise from the outside. Indeed, my room was pleasantly quiet while the light show was going on in front of the Bolshoi theatre with hundreds of people on the Teatralnaya square.

Perfect hotel room, good service, pleasant staff. The hotel is not exactly central, but it's five minutes from a subway station that is only one or at most two stops from all the main tourist attractions. And there's an advantage to being in a relative quiet location across the street from a large park.
The only negative is that the hotel provides no à la carte breakfast options. A $25 breakfast buffet, no matter how elegant, is not what you want when your idea of breakfast is a cup of coffee and a roll. But there is a restaurant up the street where you can get a cup of coffee and a croissant.

We stayed here in October 2014; the rooms are very reasonable, offset by expensive food/drink ($9.00 beer!). However we feel this is by far the best option in St. Petersburg. It's about a 15-minute walk to the Hermitage. The hotel has a swanky feel; the concierge is awesome (in fact, we were spoiled by this--not an easy find in other hotels at this price range!). The rooms are clean, spacious, and have heated bathroom floors (absolutely luxurious!). Best of all, the spa area is out-of-this-world (it was included in our room package)--it's like the World's Fair of spas--so many to choose from. We spent several evenings just indulging in them. There are also exercise classes (yoga, etc.). We booked our entire stay effortlessly online, and then returned after a week of travels and decided we couldn't beat this hotel so ended up staying here again. Highly recommended.

The four of us stayed here for 3 nights. When we got there and were shown the room (a standard room) we realized that the two doubles were actually two singles and certainly not enough for the four of us. But the front desk manager was very nice, shifted us into the biggest standard room (314: nice view of Nevsky Prospect) and told us they would put rolling single beds for our kids without charge. It is a comfortable place to stay in, well run, and the concierge was very helpful in getting taxis for us. The hotel has their own taxi which is quite expensive but the ones they call from outside are for a fixed price and very reasonable. The location on Nevsky Prospect, is wonderful: lots of nice restaurants close by, fun to just walk on the street, and about a 25 minute walk to Hermitage. Try to get a room looking onto Nevsky Prospect. Highly recommended.
