Saint Petersburg my 4 days Best Off

84%
Found this guide helpful

book an small quiet hotel as Pushka Inn Hotel, just close to Winter Palace, 2 minutes by walk so close, where every hotel people give you an extraordinary service, the restaurant for lunch is simple and very good, book a guide as TJ Travel for visits and transfers, of course begin by Winter Palace and the center city by walk, don't forgot to visit outside city Catherine Palace and Peterhof Palace, and to finish the day don't hesitate to have marvellous diners as Russian Empire restaurant in Stroganof Palace to eat Stroganof beef of course, or Palkin restaurant with good caviar and good fish of course and something secret to discover...try it... or Star restaurant, the best one from my opinion, with caviar and sterlet fish, so good, and finish with napoleon cake, a marvellous cake, and when you will come back home you will have marvellous souvenirs from Saint Petersburg ( writen in bad english by a french guy who want to share its experience with everybody in the world )

    excellent hotel and restaurant, in center city Saint Petersburg, imagine you can almost see Hermitage museum , Winter Palace, only 2 minutes by walk, the hotel is small but the room is very confortable, and hotel people, everybody is friendly, helpful, asking what you need, helping you to book a visit, to book a restaurant, to call a taxi, to have a transfer to airport, so nice hotel people, to continue the restaurant is also a small restaurant, but the breakfast is very good, you can have eggs, no problem, you can have lunch and diner too, the food is good, and as for hotel, people restaurant are very good , friendly, they did a good job, and i enjoyed very very very much the december 31th diner : special end of the year diner : thanks again to restaurant people for this special diner , they did a very good job, i can highly recommand this hotel and this restaurant, it is a perfect place to visit by walk center city Saint Petersburg, please if you don't like big international hotel , come to the small Puska inn hotel and restaurant, a last thing to say : please don't claim because there are 2 doors in the street: 1 for Hotel and 1 for Restaurant, only one meter walk to have breakfast or lunch or diner, it is not important : OK?
