Wonderful Petro Palace A review of Petro Palace Hotel
We have just returned from wonderful 4 days at the Petro Palace. There was absolutely nothing we could complain about. The de luxe room was fabulous, as were the staff, and the breakfast was great. Our towels were even changed twice a day. The location was perfect--walking distance to the Hermitage and 2 minutes from St. Isaacs. The gift shop was excellent for our souvenirs as we actually found the prices cheaper than the markets. We used Peters Walking tours and had a great guide called Mike for our first day. We found a great wee informal restaurant with great food, wine and beer at very inexpensive prices. The menu was in english so we had no problems (2nd steet on the right past the hotel with an emblem of a man with a beer and a pipe --downstairs). The Baron restaurant in the hotel also serves wonderful food though a wee bit more pricey.
