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.

Front desk and security guards need to be better trained. A lot of miscommunications with guests. No elevator to 3rd floor and rug on stairway is hazardas. They claim to have wifi in rooms but it is so poor that you have to go close to reception desk to get it.
Food is good and the full breakfast buffet is only on weekends - more sparse on weekdays.
No American Express.
We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Very convenient and close to St. Isaac's and the Hermitage. Breakfast was fantastic and the rooms were clean and spacious. Rooftop terrace was spectacular in the evening overlooking St. Isaac's

After a less-than-perfect experience at another hotel in SPb, this was a good experience. The hotel was clean, comfortable, quiet at night, and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was good. The location was excellent - 10 minute bus journey from/to Pulkovo airport, 10 minute walk to Moskovskaya Metro then a 15 minute metro journey to the centre of SPb. Will definitely stay there again. Only downside: if you stay in a Standard room, you don't get free access to the swimming pool.
