haven't been in St. Pete for a couple of years, but my favourite during last visit was Idiot Cafe, a great cosy place to sit and relax after a few hours of sight-seeing in the winter.

The Afisha issue for 24 Nov - 7 Dec (#22) has a listing of B&Bs in central Sp. Pete. There're like 10 of them. If you can't find the magazine ask me and maybe i will be super nice and send you some addresses/phone numbers

As for what to see...it's endless...you can spend 3 days in Hermitage alone...

Bon voyage! :-)

Plenty to do and see, depends on what your interests are. Bars? Clubs? Historical sites? I like the fast train, 5 hours and cheap, very safe and secure!

i was just in StP this past weekend. We accidentally came across a neat new little hostel and I thought I'd pass on the info in case anyone might be interested.
It's a very small but neat and clean apartment-hostel, about $20 per person per night. fairly central, about 15 minute walk to Nevsky nearish Kazansky and about a 30 minute walk to the Peter-Paul Fortress.
the site is (i think) www.sleepcheap.spb.ru
