Deluxe Hotels

Famous for its trademark riverside views, the Hotel Saint Petersburg is particularly popular with tour groups and conference planners. While room quality does vary, the hotel's public areas are large and impressive on the whole. Standard Rooms are clean, but rather outdated, but the hotel's Renovated Rooms are newly furnished and much more comfortable. The Saint Petersburg Hotel boasts an excellent central location, just opposite the mighty Cruiser Avrora, but the hotel would definitely benefit from air-conditioning.

Arbat Street is one of the oldest streets in Moscow. Originally it was a part of an important trade route and was home to a large number of craftsmen. In the 18th century Arbat became one of the most prestigious living areas in Moscow and then a place for the intelligentsia and artists to live. In soviet times young people used to held their meetings and protests here. The street nowadays reflects these eventful periods with its elegant buildings, a museum in the house of great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, a lot of nice shops, cafés and restaurants, an entire wall dedicated to the pioneers of Russian rock and the impressive building of the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
