Finding this hotel was very difficult. There was no sign for it on Nevsky Prospect and once inside its courtyard, no sign on the correct door. If we had understood how the Russian house numbering system works, it would have been easier. Thankfully, friendly Russians assisted.
Once in the hotel, we found it a wonderful place to stay. The staff were helpful and spoke English, the room was a good size, clean and comfortable, breakfasts were generous and the unlimited amount of fresh teas and coffees from the bar was thankfully received.
Being based on Nevsky Prospect is really a fantastic place for a holiday in St Petersberg. As much fun as the underground, buses and trams were, being able to walk up the the Winter Palace in little time was amazing.
It is advised to not drink local water in St Petersberg. There were little supermarkets near the hotel where bottled water could be cheaply bought.
