the hotel is small and quiet. Service is excellent and friendly. My room was large and comfortable. The food was good, wholesome and healthy. Mariinsky Theatre is a 10 minute walk There are trams and buses not too far away which sometimes work out quicker than the underground because of its extreme depth. I would love to stay here again
