Supportive and friendly personnel, very convenient location, lovely interior, quiet and cozy rooms, sophisticated restaurant with rather unimpressive dishes for the corresponding prices. Internet connection is not excellent but good enough.

I personally did not select the hotel (well located, a few minutes’ walk from Nevsky Prospekt), my travel agent did; however, I was entirely satisfied with my experience of staying in this hotel; I would not hesitate to be there again. The first impression as I entered the premises was visually elevating; it was a compact, elegant place. I had...

The room is comfortable, nice and quiet. Internet connection is fine. TV has only Russian channels, but anyhow watching TV in St.Petersburg is wasting time. Excellent breakfast you shouldn't miss. Stuff is very friendly and cares about guests.

My wife and I stayed for 4 days. The staff was friendly and the nightly creation of the pastry chef in our room was a pleasant surprise. I would stay here again on my next visit. The hotel restaurant was excellent to the point that we ate here on two separate evenings. I can't wait to return
