Our trip to St Petersburg was timed to coincide with a 70th Birthday. We advised Christina Gibbons of this fact and she obviously passed this information to the Astoria Hotel. We were overwhelmed by the upgraded service we received fro the Astoria. Russian champagne, large box of chocolates and a birthday card on the relevant day. Well done to all concerned.
