This is a modern hotel about 5mins walk from a metro station that is 2 stops from the centre so it is quite convenient to tour St Petersburg. The rooms are adequate but not large although they contain all that you would want and are very clean.
The restaurant is supposedly modelled on a french bistro but is rather dark and in our view rather depressing. Food is poor but breakfast is much better although very crowded. The desk staff are most helpful young and enthusiastic but clearly not very experienced-they were unable to take my credit card details that meant i had to pay for each item in the hotel as it arose
They claim to be the Tripadvisor trendiest hotel for 2012 but I can see absolutely no reason why it would be regarded as trendy.
