It was a fantastic time in St Petersburg (first time visit) and your hotel and staff were wonderful. Fantastic room and brilliant staff. The executive suite had an amazing view out over the river. Starting with our driver who collected us at St Petersburg airport the staff at the hotel were very helpful all of the time. They arranged cars to the Meriinsky theatre and back and also our return to the airport to come home where we discovered that Roman, our driver was very courteous, and helpful and spoke brilliant English. Better than our Russian. Also, Maria and Mikhail on reception - wonderful people. Very professional. And also a huge special thank you to Daria,the Reservations Manager who could not have gone more out of her way to arrange everything.
The only thing we had to complain about was that we didn't want to come home, we didn't want our time there to end, Which means we would not have changed anything.
I must mention the Fiolet Restaurant. Fantastic!!. Your chef(s) deserves a medal as do the waiters and waitresses. The food,(the choice) the service was superb, the buffet breakfast amazing. All the staff work very hard.
We got back from the ballet at midnight on our final night and the restaurant still cooked us a wonderful meal.
Professional, clean, affordable and a great location. Perfect choice for a great special Birthday long weekend.
