We booked in with some trepidation having seen mixed reviews of this hotel. Most worries proved groundless as we had a very pleasant stay. The room was clean and uncramped (though no view). The bar upstairs was comfortable and served food. The staff were friendly and helpful - often saying the basics in Russian cracked a dour face into a smile. Breakfast is a melee and supper seemed only available in the bar, although the menu was quite extensive. The shopping centre next door has a sort of fast food cafe but with reasonably priced freshly cooked dishes. Downstairs is a supermarket where you can get bottled water (evidently a necessity in this city). Next door is a decent pizza restaurant in a cellar. There are two metros stations just opposite; Nevsky Prospekt is 5 mins walk, where you can get a 5 trolley bus down to the Hermitage and the river.
