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

It was a great pleasure to spend my 4 days in SPB with this hotel. They really did all to make it enjoyable. By the way before I chose it, there was few reviews about ignorant personnel. Truthfully, everyone I dealt with was doing their job very professionally and with great smile. And that I really appreciated. Special thanks for... More

We had a wonderful 4-night stay at the Taleon Imperial Hotel. The room was very tasteful. The bathroom huge, with a separate shower and large bath tub. The room was spotlessly clean. If you want the temperature in your room lower or higher, ask reception and they can change it from their end. The room was very quiet at night... More

My husband and I recently visited Russia for the first time for my work. We are from Chicago, and were nervous about the language and the rooms being too small for our taste.

Old palace building from the early 1700. Friendly staff and spaceous room with an extremely clean and shiny marble bathroom. It was very big, too although we had a standard room. The location in the beginning of Nevsky Prospect was great. Walkin distance to the Hermitage (winter palace) and Church of Isac. Great Hotel I must say.

When we came hotel the reception said us we upgrade your room to suit without any charge. We suprised and happy. Our room was extremly beatiful, large, comfortable and silence. The information desk duty was absolutely helpful. She made lots of advise and reservation for us for restaurants. The breakfast is extra charge but not expensive you can try it.
