The Astoria offers exceptional hospitality, reminiscent of years gone by, traditional and yet modern, relaxed sophistication with understated style, luxuriously earthy but definitely not rustic, beautiful Volga linen with splashes of vibrant colour - quiet and relaxing. The Astoria is a St Petersburg landmark in its own right and is situated across from another great landmark, St Isaacs Cathedral of... More

The hotel building is stunning and the arquitecture has been well preserved! I love the hotel rooms with a classic decoration but being contemporary at the same time! The team is great and provides a fantastic service! Very good breakfast! Great 5 star hotel if you're staying in SP.

Coming to St Petersburg for the Mariinsky Ballet Festival, I stayed at the Rocco Forte Astoria which is of walkable distance to the theatre. One of only two historic hotels of St Petersburg, it retains much of the 100-year old features and yet has the most modern equipped interior. Rooms are large, many overlook the St Isaac Cathedral Square. Like... More

Fantastic hotel, rooms were large and beautiful views. Great location. Flawless hospitality. I was immediately impressed with the staff upon arrival: professional and efficient, yet oh-so natural and with no sense of pretension. I would defintely recommend this hotel.

The hotel is still exceptional, in a perfect location, but it's getting tough to compete with the new neighbors around St Isaak's. One thing constant through the years is the best Guest Relations Head in town, Lidia has been there since forever, and she's as authentic SPB native as there is, period. Let her make your day!

I have always liked this hotel with its feel of Tsarist Russia and its excellent location. In the past service was sometimes a bit soviet, but in recent years, under the management of Rocco Forte, it is really becoming a top hotel. The service is now absolutely among the best anywhere with a great combination of efficiency and friendliness. The... More

We stayed at the Astoria for a long weekend with our two very young children. Great location. Staff couldn't have been more friendly and the quality of service is very high. To the point when as we walked along a corridor with a sleeping baby housekeeping stopped vacuuming until we were in our room. The food was good perhaps not... More
