We had a very decent remain at the Petro Palace Hotel. The area was extraordinary, close the Metro, the Hermitage, St. Isaac's and other attractions. The inn was exceptionally charming, with a pool, sauna and wellness center. The staff was inviting and proficient. The rooms were open, clean and comfortable. The washroom was expansive, with a warmed floor (it can be turned off). We found the room a small as well warm, with no simple way to dial down the temperature. The towels were changed every day, in spite of the fact that we would have favored something else.
