We were with a tour group which usually stays elsewhere, but for some reason, our group was at the Taleon. It is stunning! We would never treat ourselves tis well, if we were on our own, but are so happy to have had the experience. We were late for dinner one night, but ordered the light supper in the bar.... More

Beautiful hotel right in the centre of St. Petersburg. Very friendly and helpful staff, amazing architecture and lovely 20m swimming pool. Room service breakfast is very good as is breakfast in the restaurant but room service is much cheaper.

And you can also visit many other places by walk. You should not expect a very big lobby or resturant because as a palace... More

A perfect balance between modernity and tradition. Excellent first class services including free Wi-Fi which you rarely see nowadays, wide range of breakfast buffets, very friendly personnel,attentive concierges and above all you get immersed into Russian history. Beautiful portraits decorated the walls, especially the immaculate painting of Peter The Great on the staircases enchants the mind whenever you passed it.... More

We stayed for several days and felt as though we had the entire place to ourselves. Luxurious, quiet, clean. The rooms are sumptuous: spacious, richly decorated, blackout curtains, luxe bath products, tons of closet/drawer space. We enjoyed meals at both the terrace restaurant and the dining room and were delighted by both: the food was outstanding and the service impeccable.... More

I was at the Taleon in February 2013 with my son for 5 nights. Rather than discuss the hotel, I will retell the events of the financial scam the Taleon tried on me.
