W St. Petersburg: a breath of fresh air

fashion

Chic and trendy, the new W hotel gives a youthful spark to the city.

High fashion to the max. This is the main feature of W Hotels, which are design-savvy and ultra-chic. The US chain Starwood installed its first W Hotel in Saint Petersburg, near St. Isaac's Cathedral, in 2011. The Italian architects responsible for its decor were inspired by Fabergé eggs those precious jewelled pieces created in the late 19th century at the request of Tsar Alexander III.

The rooms are nice looking and very cosy, in beige and white punctuated with red or purple. They are also equipped with the latest technologies. In the bathrooms, the shower is like a warm rainfall, very welcome after long walks in the city. The breakfast is hearty. Grab a drink at the bar terrace on the 8th floor, one of the favourite watering holes among the city's young urban set.
