Originally I am from Russia. I've been living in the USA for the last 15 years. I haven't been to my home town - St.-Petersburg for 8 years. November 2016 was my 1st time staying in the hotel.
I RECOMMEND everybody to stay in this hotel. I was impressed for the first few days, then I was just enjoying my time in the hotel. I spend 17 days 16 nights in Akyan. Frankly I was spoiled by the staff.
Hotel is in the center of the city close to metro station and any place you want to visit in St.-Petersburg. It is beautiful outside and inside, very clean (seemed to me they were cleaning it 24/7). The staff is unbelievably friendly, nice, polite and helpful!!! The night I was leaving I got a hug from a few of them, I was in tears.
As for breakfast, I have never had such experience before. Working days the breakfast was 7am - 11am. Weekends - 8am-12am. Food, it was delicious. They have buffet. You can find there any food you like, want or prefer to eat. I am not proud of myself, but I gained 3 kg, could not say NO to myself, kept eating Russian pancakes :)!!!
Also it is very warm in the hotel, I had to open the window every day, but I like when it is cool. The bathrooms, showers are extremely clean and beautiful. There was no such thing as not enough hot water.
My experience staying in Akyan was the best!
Julia, Evgeniya and all day time and night time Receptionists THANKS A LOT!!! You made my vacation unforgettable!!! You are the best!
The staff is very friendly, helpful and most speak English. There is an elevator even though I read here that there wasn't (the hotel has expanded into another part of the building). There was a mini-bar in the room, but we found a 24 hour convenience store half a block away. One of the stops on the popular boat tour is a short walk away - you can hop on and off at 7 stops around town. The Metro is right across the street, and provides inexpensive transportation all over the city.

the entrance is a bit of a shock because this is a general entrance to many businesses, but do not fear-the actual hotel is nice. The internet get handled by the receptionist-very helpful-but would have liked to book my own flight and search wider for cheaper flights. this was a bit off a costy trip. she did everything right, but could not sent e-mail home???
would be nice to be hands -on myself.
