I LOVED the hotel.. but the restaurant was a rip-off with surly service...
The room was really nice, original, good hot water (important), free wi-fi that worked well (equally important). Careful about taking advice about restaurants from the staff - the one I was recommended locally was either closed or closed-down!
So, the restaurant on the other hand was a rip-off (I hadn't intended to eat there, as you can see above, but...), with surly service, ok food, and really really pricey.

I didn't go into the grand palace itself as Elena and Sergei both said that it wasn't really worth it and that there are better palaces to see inside. Instead I wandered the surrounding gardens for a good while, just casually strolling amongst the oak, pine and birch trees in much the way that Peter the Great would've done.
I did however pay to get into Monplaisir as ...
... of the famous original; before the siege of Leningrad, the Russians covered the amber with wallpaper, the Nazis uncovered the amber, and when the siege was over, the Russians returned to bare walls. About twenty years later, a few pieces of the amber were found in Germany and returned to Russia but the location of the remainder is a mystery. The Palace is magnificent and a joy to experience, but it is unquestionably over the top, ...
What a country!
We really had no idea what to expect in
St. Petersburg; but, we were certainly pleasantly surprised. For
Marley, it was like she was reliving her last year of history; but,
this time in 3D on the actual grounds in which it took place. It's
impossible to describe for you here all that we saw and experienced;
but, we'll try to do the highlights justice. We began our visit with
a professional guide who is also a ...
