I was impressed before I'd even arrived! I emailed the hotel from my departure airport to enquire about arranging a car to collect me from the airport. The Chief Concierge, Natalia, responded very quickly and the car was arranged in minutes. Once I arrived I was impressed with how stunning some parts of the hotel are. It's quite palatial. The...

Location, Room, Ambience & Feel were excellent. The Reception staff was quiet courteous and efficient. I liked the sky view concept of the spa on the roof! But have to admit was disappointed with the quality of the 60 min full body massage - did not get my money or for that matter the brand's worth! Also, I had ordered... More

Our stay at the Taleon was fabulous! The location was ideal - overlooking the canal, right on the corner of Nevsky Prospect and a 5 min walk to the hermitage, church of Spilt Blood and the Kazan Cathedral. It really is a palace and guests are treated like royalty. We spent 6 days in St. Petersburg (and saw many hotels... More

This was a fabulous experience. The hotel staff are friendly (and English-speaking), and the rooms are absolutely stunning. Each one is different. We had a Superior room, which was by far the largest hotel room we have stayed in in Europe. The bathroom (always an important part of the hotel experience for me) was as big as my Moscow apartment... More

I have had the pleasure of staying in Ritz London, Ritz Paris and Sacher Vienna. The Taleon Imperial in St. Petersburg is at least as good. It surely deserves to be put among the most beautiful traditional houses in Europe. Here beauty and history meet with modern comfort. The hotel is privately owned and you can have that particular feeling:... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and ours came with a big jacuzzi bath. The location is right on Nevsky Prospect and the metro is really close. The main downside was that our room had windows that look inside the hotel so there was no natural light which made waking up very... More
