TravelPod Member ReviewsDemetra Art Hotel St. Petersburg
Loved our room and the decor, very comfortable and clean, not a huge room but it was more than enough for 2 people plus 2 suitcases. We had a high floor and a balcony, couldn't ask for more.
We had the Marushka (sp?)breakfast (porridge with almonds and a few blueberries, pancakes with sour cream and coffee) that came with the room, more than enough for us.
Staff were brilliant. The front desk ladies helped me with taxis, how to get to the ballet, all sorts of advice ( and it was all excellent advice) and they all spoke English which we appreciated as our Russian was zero.
I would like to pay special appreciation to 2 of the waitress's, I am afraid I did not get their names but they both had long hair and wore the green T shirts. They were fun and made us feel very welcome.
Location is good for the metro, even walking to the Winter Palace is only 20 minutes.
We would return if ever in St Petersburg again

Packed and ready for our first ever fast train Moscow to St Petersburg.
Taxi to station ( paid a bit more but used the hotel car)
Now we had no guide to help work out platforms etc but we managed well. Grabbed a coffee and a bite to eat then we were off. More leg room than a plane! But remind me not to try and …
... 8217;t, so I couldn’t get in because it is a private home and they don’t do tours, of course. There was heavy security so I couldn’t go in but I saw a little bit of it from outside, through the gate and trees.
On the days leading up to our ship’s arrival in Russia, there were all sorts of rumors going around that we wouldn’t go and rumors about what was happening in Russia and in Crimea and Ukraine. We have poor access to the news on the ship so ...
... saw my hostel as it looked in 1903.
The later displays covered the development of the city into an industrial centre and the plight of the city's poorest classes that created. Sadly there wasn't much info on the city during the 900 day siege of World War 2, but I guess there are 8 blockade museums elsewhere in the city as it is.
Moving on I then went into a small museum actually in the curtain wall of the fortress on the history of the ...
... so the rain water collects at the bottom, until a truck drives through it that is....it's like being hit by a fire hose every time one went passed, that combined with the already poor visibility made riding quite hairy. Now if you add the Russian driving to the mix you'll understand why I was scared for my life on a couple of occasions. There is no such thing as a gap in traffic in Russia, it's just space for a Russian to put his vehicle into regardless of the size of the ...
... do this at the Louvre. People in tour groups generally want to move up to the picture one at a time so they can photograph it. If you stand a bit to the side, you can take your time with the picture as people come, snap, and move on.
One of my favorite rooms was the Rembrandt Room. The Hermitage has, I think, over 20 Rembrandts. I spent some time here and, in fact, returned the second day. We devoted the first day ...
