Hotel is 2 blocks from the Hermitage Museum in downtown, easy walking distance to all major sites (even for two 60 year olds). Rooms are clean and quite. The reception is on the 3d floor and rooms are on 2d to 5th floors. No elevator :(. Very good breakfast in their restaurant next door. Helpful staff, helped us with the use of the free computer in the lobby, information on other sites around town. They have secure storage for your luggage after check out before you leave town. Will pick you up from the airport.
