The staff were polite and very helpful, the room I was in was basic but comfortable, if a little hot and humid, however street noise could be quite intrusive, but the shower, bathroom and kitchen facilities were very good and well maintained. Don't be put off by the entrance hall to the apartments when you are buzzed into the building, once you get to the apartment upstairs it does get a lot better!

I'm brave like that. My start point is some unpronounceable station and my finish point is some unpronounceable station. Find a way of buying a ticket (which is ...
... m not sure exactly how this came about, but one of our ladies was on the floor dancing and waving the flag, only to be joined by one of the Italian guys waving their double flag. When she sat down, she put the Australian flag at the end of our table, and the Italian guy came over and put their flag down next to it. For a bit of amusement, I slid a coffee cup under our flag so that it stood up well above the Italian one. "Let's see what this does," I said. Well - ...
... nearby robin's egg-blue Catherine Palace, the former summer residence of the tsars. We walked around the many rooms at this palace, including the lavish ballroom and the famous Amber Room, which has walls of amber. We didn't spend too long at the palace and were soon back on the bus on our way back into the city. Our tour guide was great and during the bus ride she gave some traditional ...
