"Artem was awesome! Nothing was too much trouble."
We arrived around 6pm and the room was not ready. Artem sent us to the restaurant where he comp'd our entire meal (which was DELISH). Our suite was huge with 1.5 bathrooms and a whirlpool tub. The bed was comfortable and the AC was cold! Very convenient location. Great restaurants within walking distance. Very, very pleased!!!!

The hotel is definitely 4 star. However, the hotel is not near anything, which we thought was a plus. It also means that you have to arrange for transportation to visit every place in St. Petersburg, unless you can figure out how to use their bus/rail system.

Fabulous. From being served champagne on arrival to the champagne and caviar at breakfast, this hotel provided all the special touches. Breakfast buffet was as good as it gets in Russia. Room was beautifully clean and was not too hot. Staff were as friendly and as helpful as they come. No faults or improvements to report.
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.
Everything went well in a lovely Hotel by St Isaccs Cathederal. Staff were friendly and most spoke excellent English. Concierge was very good about travel and other information regarding St Petersburg.
Bar could be a bit Cheaper as most drinking was done at other watering holes. It is very expensive.
Have a meal in the Restaurant but check all items are available. If eating around St Petersburg be aware that only half the menu will be available, or items are on the Menu(to lure you in) but have never been sold there...very frustrating. Great City though and this Hotel is the Perfect Base

A1 experience from check in to check out. Great location close to 'must see' sites, museums and panoramas of the magnificent old imperial capital of Russia. The building is a well preserved and meticulously restored 18th century palace. It's worthwhile to spend several hours exploring and admiring the interiors. The hotel's atmosphere calls for 'slowing down', look around and enjoy staying in cozy luxury.

The hotel was perfect for us. It was bang in the centre, had everything we needed. We were impressed by the service particularly of the 'concierge' who was knowledgeable about cultural events in St Petersburg and found very reasonable tickets for things we wanted to see. They had good taxi connections and advice on getting around. Breakfasts were good and snacks like soups whenever necessary!

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.

We stayed in this place over one night between our travel destinations . Beautiful area with walking distance to many historical places even over one evening. Staff is very pleasant, hotel is clean, and rooms are comfortable and quiet. Would stay there again if in the area.
