Love this hotel; love the staff A review of Angleterre Hotel
This hotel is a perfect treasure and exceeded all of my expectations. I recently returned from nine days at the Angleterre, having booked an independent visit to St. Petersburg through the hotel concierge service. Our room was exactly as promised, a suite overlooking St. Isaacs Cathedral and Square. The rooms have recently been remodeled, are immaculately clean and the extra space was nice for the length of time we were there. The Borsalino Restaurant is excellent and also provides the hotel room service; we were extremely pleased with the quality and diversity of the menus. The real treasure of this hotel, however, are the four women who staff the concierge desk. I had emailed a list of everything I wanted to see in St. Petersburg (a formidable list) and this was translated into a practical itinerary. We were provided with a car and guide, Irina, who made exploring the city and coutryside a true pleasure. I had also requested information on ballet and symphony performances and was provided a choice of seats with a seating chart. We managed to see four magnificent performances and the Angleterre staff made sure that we had a car to take us and pick us up; everything was made quite effortless. I have never met such a friendly staff. We enjoyed many conversations on a variety of subjects. After being there so long it truly felt like we were leaving the home of friends and we will surely be back. I should also add that the location of the hotel was quite convenient and made walks around the city a real pleasure. Treat yourself and stay here!
