The hotel is enriched by numerous design pieces and works of art but with a special Russian modern touch that you wouldn’t see elsewhere. The modern style of the hotel features a red commode in each room, velvety textiles of the highest quality, charmingly and strictly designed black bathrooms with gold plated fittings.
Most rooms overlook the Summer Gardens, and have a ‘English design meets Russian cultural heritage’ kind of feel to them.
Dom Boutique Hotel has an inviting combined lounge and library, where you can relax with a good book or why not read up on the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin who used to live in the area.
The Italian restaurant Giardino in the hotel, is considered one of the best Italian restaurants in Saint Petersburg, and you often see the locals queuing outside.
Saint Petersburg has always been the historic capital of the Russian Empire, and you need to set aside at least a day for the world-famous Hermitage Museum, Russia’s Louvre, and another day to visit the Winter Palace and the former apartments of Dostoevsky.
Ask the concierge to arrange ballet tickets for you at the Mariinsky theatre and to recommend where to find the flagship stores for the most prominent Russian designers.
If you’re planning a cultural crawl weekend in one of the trendiest of destinations, the Dom Boutique Hotel is your ideal home base.
