We stayed here for 3 nights March 24-27, 2014. Luxury hotel, very quite. Rooms are beautiful. Location is perfect, only 5 minutes walking to Hermitage. My wife had her Birthday during our stay and the hotel gave her a complimentary delicious cake. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was fantastic. Will stay here again for sure!!!

We are currently staying at the Taleon Imperial hotel for four nights. We are staying in a deluxe suite which is very comfortable with its own balcony. It has all we would wish for except tea and coffee making facilities. The magnifying mirror in the bathroom is the best I have found in any hotel, which is a bonus. The... More

Impressive interior! The breakfasts were very good and the wait staff was always very helpful. All staff were courteous and accomodating. Our room had twice daily service although on the weekends the evening service was mainly turndown. We received a room upgrade and we had more than enough of room

The hotel is quite well located. Great breakfast! You can actually see the sun rising from the restaurant, which is beautiful. We have had problems with our room due to a lack of hot water, but they managed to upgrade us to another room in the following day. The spa is also wonderful! Really worth staying there.
