This hotel has a great location just off the Nevsky Prospect. Breakfast was ok. The staff was nice. The water isn't potable (giardia in the water supply for the whole city), so you have to buy water bottles. There were two bottles in our room when we showed up. The receptionist said that they would be replaced each day, but this could have been a translation issue. I went to a grocery store half a mile north and grabbed a bunch of 2L water bottles for 20 R each, so this wasn't really an issue. I would stay here again.
