TravelPod Member ReviewsSaint-Petersburg Hotel St. Petersburg
Being on the other side of the river from the historic district made for expensive cab rides or a bit of a walk to their extensive metro, but the view was worth it!
The room was exceptional for the price paid and the term "breakfast included" left visions of rolls and coffee. In reality it was a feast! Eggs and sausages fixed multiple ways, fruit, bread, vegetables and salads. In Russia it seemed every breakfast includes tomatoes and cucumbers. Pastries, merinegues, pancakes with fruits or syrups and of course coffee tea and fruit juices, all in a dinning room with the fabulous view of the historic St Petersburg.

I felt more like I was in Disney World than Russia, or that maybe I was in the world of the board game, Candy Land. What I didn’t know was that there is a chapel below each dome. I assumed ...
... 20th century avant-garde painters Kasimir Malevich and Vassily Kadinsky. The cafe and extensive cloakrooms are on the ground floor and the exhibition rooms are on the upper floors. The central staircase is from the original palace building of the Tsar's brother. There were several Kadinsky paintings on display and half a dozen Malevich paintings particularly of his peasant series. Although he was of the suprematist movement his ...
... 18th C. royalty. The guides tell us that leaving the building, the most frequently heard comment is "(n)o wonder there was a revolution'.
Lunch at a country restaurant near the Palace was pickled vegetables, mushroom soup and stuffed cabbage, traditional Russian fare, accompanied by all the cold vodka we could drink and a serenade by musicians in costume. It was hokey, but fun and the food was good.
After a nap on the bus ...
... The topside bar isn’t open but we find the bar on the bow that is open. It seems as if I keep hearing cars boarding and I finally look over the side and there are cars driving on board so it does work as a car ferry as well. Finally, my daughter goes and gets our dinner tickets and says we didn’t get a good table but I liked it better because we could see out the front window and see some of the islands that we were passing as we make ...
