This was my first visit to Russia, so I didn't know quite what to expect.
To my surprise, the hotel receptionists spoke good English.
Plus they were very helpful from organizing taxi to printing my ticket for Hermitage which I bought online.
The restaurant staff didn't spoke English very good, but they were eager to speak and did every effort to understand what you wanted.
The room was spacious with one big window, which - thank God- you can open.
I am a fan of fresh air, and it's the first thing I do when I enter a hotel room.
At some hotels you can't open at all and you are at the mercy of recycled air through a/c.
The bathroom was big and clean.
The only drawback was a little musty smell in the room.
The room was facing to teh back of the hotel, so you could sleep with open windows.
Location is 3 blocks from metro station, there wasn't too much amenities, except a sauna, which you have too book in advance and pay.
I liked the food in the restaurant, the room service- was fast and well cooked- ( I ordered pasta with vegetables and it was cooked al dente ).
I liked that it was quiet in the restaurant, so that I can work and have my coffee and tea.
The least I liked was the smell in the room.
