Enjoy the labyrinthine canals and baroque architecture of Russia's "window on the West" and then retreat to the comforts of the Corinthia Hotel St Petersburg. Hotel rates in St Petersburg are notoriously expensive, but prices at this 5-star hotel have been cut by 50%, to £115 per room, per night.
Situated on Nevsky Avenue -- the city's main street designed by Peter the Great -- the hotel is housed in two 19th-century buildings. It has two restaurants, three bars, a spa and an outdoor sun terrace, and is close to the State Hermitage Museum, St Isaac's Cathedral and the Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood.
Rates are valid seven days a week until the end of 2012 and a 2-night minimum stay applies. Free room upgrades are also available, subject to availability, and will be allocated on arrival. The discount is based on best-available rates and so the price may fluctuate, but we found good availability at this rate over the travel period.
