Over the course of several years, the independent community has been selecting the best hotels, cruises and establishments from all over the world to satisfy sophisticated tourists’ demand for excellence.
The founder and an editor of “Authentic Hotels & Cruises” Cristophe Vallet—himself an hotelier in the south of France whose reputable establishment has been known for several generations for its genuine good service. His idea sprung from a desire to recommend places to stay in other regions which he felt his own clients would appreciate. Based on his personal experience Cristophe Vallet found hotels similar to his own which avoid standard abundance: "Tired of fake luxury and things "over-done", our clients are seeking, more than ever, exclusive charm and authenticity."
Among the exceptional places which still have substance to their soul and elegant simplicity in the cozy atmosphere its place took Dom Boutique Hotel, St. Petersburg, Russia.
Plunge into a cozy fairytale of the Dom Boutique Hotel in the very heart of the majestic St. Petersburg. This brand new luxury hotel in the nineteenth century mansion on Gangutskaya street is conveniently located in the most iconic area of the city, between the Fontanka embankment and the diplomatic district.
The hotel emanates the atmosphere of an aristocratic household, a unique combination of sacredness and luxury: the ambience is enriched by numerous design pieces and works of art. Formerly an apartment block, built in 1876 by the architect August Zhoffrio, now presented in a modern form which marries the classical setting with contemporary interventions, inviting guests on a journey across the city and surprising them with original furnishings and exquisite decor of the lobby and restaurant.
Modern English style of the hotel features a red commode in each room, velvety textiles of the highest quality, antique mirrors, charmingly and strictly designed black bathrooms with gold plated fittings and a piquant French window to the street. In these small details you will gain a great peace from the hustle and bustle of the modern world. What we like!
Most rooms overlook the Summer Garden, praised by the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin. The walls of the library, halls and rooms are decorated with works of an outstanding St. Petersburg photo-artist Alexander Kitaev. Dom Boutique Hotel is a perfect pick for those who want to savour the architectural beauty and the artistic treasures of the rive droite of St-Petersburg, far from the mainstream tourist routes: nearby are the masterpieces of the Russian
Museum – Mikhailovsky and Marble Palaces, Mikhailovsky Castle, surrounded by the waters of the rivers Fontanka and Moyka.
