This is a modern and beautifully presented hotel with friendly helpful staff who all speak English. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. They have safes, ironing boards and hairdryers but no tea/coffee making equipment. Breakfast was included and was superb. Champagne was offered at no charge on the Saturday and Sunday - not sure if this is a regular weekend offering or perhaps it was to celebrate Easter. One of our party had a birthday while we were there and to our complete surprise a complimentary bottle of champagne appeared in his room.
The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the nearest metro station and we felt perfectly safe walking around the area.
Although dinner in the restaurant was a little disappointing I would have no hesitation it recommending the Sokos Olympia Garden Hotel as a friendly and efficient base from which to visit St Petersburg.
