The hotel is situated at the eastern end of Nevsky Prospekt, opposite Moscow Station. The entrance is not particularly inviting: one staircase, a floor with a concierge, then one more staircase to the lobby and reception desk. Coming in with suitcases can be very troublesome. We had a room on the floor of the reception desk. Those who had rooms on upper floors had to take their suitcases down one flight of stairs after registering at the desk, and then take an elevator or the stairs.
The room was of a nice size and well-furnished. The television had a number of channels in English, for example BBC, EuroNews. In the room there was a safe, tea/coffee maker. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was well cleaned every day.
The bathroom was very small and the slope of the bathroom floor was slight, so the water stood for a long time, and even spread over the bathroom. The maintenance sent someone to look at it. He cleaned the drain; that may have improved the water-flow, but not the full job.
The Wifi was very good throughout the hotel.
The restaurant, called “du Nord”, where we had breakfast, was also open to the public coming in from the street, attracted perhaps by the French name of the restaurant. The fare was rich, and the service was excellent.
