A great stay in a very good location a solid walking distance to many of the sights. The rooms are comfortable. The lobby is quite grand and there are many dining options, all the ones we tried were very nice. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Highly recommended place to stay. The breakfast buffet is in the stunning room of the Europe restaurant with live music and unbelievable choice of food and great service. If anyone is looking to spend special time in St Peters-burg, this hotel would definitely elevate your experience to the unforgettable level.
