Located in Vasilyevsky Island, this hotel is within 2 mi (3 km) of Saint Petersburg State University, State Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace, and Palace Square. Peter and Paul Fortress and St. Isaac's Cathedral are also within 2 mi (3 km).
Pros: The staff are very nice and helpful, which is not always the case in St Petersburg. Good location, right by the metro and within walking distance of many landmarks. Clean rooms, good quality mattresses. Sound proofing is definitely an issue, bring earplugs.
