Nice Hotel. The first impression that you get is not very good, as you must enter through the rear entrance. Impossible to park on the front entrance. After you get into, everything changes. Nice lobby and nice staff
A very grand ( and very large) hotel. Rooms large and comfortable.
We had an issue on our last day as we had extended our stay by one day after staying there at the end of our Volga cruise. We were charged for their very expensive breakfast ( though I must add it is the most magnificent spread I have ever seen). Our other 3 nights had included breakfast. On complaining, they reversed the charge.
Start was indicative of whole experience - pick up from airport by smart friendly taxi driver in a very nice clean Mercedes. Check in very friendly and room had all you needed hair dryer, Iron, shoe cleaning, safe ....with our one overlooking the very nice courtyard.
Although just off the Nevsky Prospect the hotel was nice and quiet.
Hotel is very close to the underground and the M1 line is a must. 28 Roubles to go as far as you like, go south and get off at each station and just be amazed (ignore the last 3).
St Petersburg is a must. So much to do and see and so clean. Best city I have visited.
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.

Popular with both business and leisure travelers, this hotel is in a grand 18th-century building on Nevsky Prospect, one …More
Booked a triple room and got given the Green Room (312). Looked exactly ljke the pictures and is the biggest room available. Clean room, but bathroom was very cosy.
Based on the 3rd floor of the Hotel Anabels building, it was set within an oasis off the main Nevsky Prospect road (similar to Oxford Street in London). Didn't need the metro or bus as we walked everywhere within 30mins. But plenty od busses, trolley busses and 2 metro stations nearby.
