Part of an Italian chain and open since 2012, this boutique hotel is one of the best of its kind in St. Petersburg. It's on the trendy Moika River embankment, making it a short walk to the center of the city and the Mariinsky Theater. Rooms are colorful and modern, with walls in complementary colors, comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms, and eccentric details, such as an image of the David sculpture on the shower stall. Bedspreads and some walls have very busy and bright patterns, so don't stay here if you want only traditional decor. The Wi-Fi is free and fast throughout the entire hotel, and the staff are helpful and speak several languages, including English and French.
