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.

Our three days in St Petersburg began with a rendezvous with Masha, a Russian woman I had been in contact with in relation to the IDLTM course, and who has her own language school in the city. She suggested taking us to her favourite place, St Isaac's Cathedral. It was grand and opulent, full of icons and worshippers as well as tourists. We walked up the winding staircase to the base of the golden dome, a great vantage point for city views. Our ...

A large, brightly colored stained glass window of the "Resurrected Christ" takes pride of place inside the main altar. The church, designed to accommodate 14,000 standing worshipers, was closed in the early 1930s and reopened as a museum. Today, church services are held here only on major ecclesiastical occasions.

... 8211; he dropped us off in the most convenient spots and was always there to wisk us way to the next attraction. We then headed to Peterhof to see the Royal Estate of Peterhof some 45 minutes west of SPB. We toured just the grounds here and the fountains and landscaping is fantastic, really a Versailles of Russia.
From there it was off to the Catherine Palace, which was the summer residence of the Russian tsars located in the town of Puskin. ...
... attempt to count, but if we did not pass more than a hundred banks, I would be surprised. Today we will be exploring up front and personal, one or two of the shopping areas, but we know prices are generally high in Moscow. When we left, I couldn't think of anything I wanted from Russia, and we really haven't spent much money. Although I have a somewhat better appreciation for much of their artwork, it isn't the kind of thing that generally fits in at ...
... pre booked "tour" bus, by tour it was a direct route in a small old van to a central location called St Isaaks square. There was only us and the driver in the van and there was barely a word spoken so 'tour' was embellishing a little. The fact the old Russian chap appeared to have been drinking and didn't speak a lick of English probably impacted on his ability to be a 'tour guide'. About 2 minutes after we set off, after pointing to the central city stop on a map our ...
