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.

This was followed by a visit to St. Isaac’s Cathedral and Vasilievsky (St Basil’s Island) and last but not least before lunch was St. Peter and Pauls Fortress ...
... us in a solid stream for about 12 – 15 minutes. We stood bemused at the side of the road just watching the many different bikes going past and despite a later search of the internet still to this day have absolutely no idea what it was all about but it was cool all the same.
After packing up our belongings and checking out of the hotel we went for another long walk around town. We went for a ...
... a national holiday so the traffic is just a fraction of what it usually is on a weekday. Our guide, Svetlana, couldn’t believe that the city was so quiet. St. Petersburg is really impressive. The waterways are lined with palaces and ornate buildings. People are walking their dogs and enjoying the sun and others are picnicking in the parks. We’re surprised at how clean and bright the city is.
Our first stop is ...
