Stayed at the hotel during a visit to St. Petersburg and had picked the hotel due to positive reviews. And the hotel did definitely not disappoint. The hotel appears to be quite newly built and everything is modern and very clean. Rooms are of good size, nicely furnished and well air-conditioned. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful, e.g. when booking restaurants for the evening. The only slight downside is the location. The area around is generally nice and the metro is close-by. But the hotel is not directly in the city center, which means that it always takes a bit of time to get to and from places.
