A new hotel 'Golden Age', that is located right on the embankment, in the centre of the city, is only a walking distance of such cultural sights in Saint-Petersburg as Mariinsky Theatre, Alexandrinskiy Theatre, Yusupov Palace, St. Michael's Castle, and if you go along the Fontanka river, it will lead you right to the magnificent Summer Garden. It will also open on the heart of the city - vibrant and swarming Nevsky Prospect, bustling with an energetic and hectic life.

One could meet here renowned Russian poets, critics and painters such as V.Zhukovskiy, I. Krylov, K. Brullov and V. Stasov. As legend has it, an eminent Russian poet A.

Not without reason, Saint-Petersburg is known as the Northern Venice: the city is intersected by rivers and canals, which lends it magical charm.

An intimate and yet capacious restaurant ''Pho'n'roll cafe'' with a unique interior design, that is right next to the hotel, offers a continental breakfast buffet as well as authentic Vietnamese cuisine to all the guests, delivering excellent customer service all the time.
