I had a quickly business trip to Saint-Petersburg, so I couldn't have time to choose the hotel. I decided, that the hotel with the same name as a city name, should be the right one. All in all my expectations were positive. My business trip turned out to be succesful, the same as a rest. Hotel has non-smoking rooms, and for me it's a huge point. I settled in a short time, room has a panoramic city view, have to mention that windows could be open up. City noise confused, but somehow, i didn't notice it when windows were closed. Excellent verandah, complaisant waiters. Of course, there were some defects, but i might set them aside. And of course next time, I'll plan to have a rest at this hotel, not to work. City is really beautiful and the hotel is the right for it.
