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. The Taleon staff were amazing, very polite and helpful. They directed us to some amazing resaturants based on our taste and preferences. The hotel itself is so... More

WOW, what an amazing hotel! This was our first trip to Saint Petersburg and it was gorgeous in every way. The staff is kind, efficient, welcoming and extremely service oriented. The spa and indoor pool are amazing and you just can't beat the location. We were steps away from everything! The Hermitage is across the street. The lobby decor and... More

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.

Spent 3 nights here with tour group and it was amazing. I loved it and felt very spoilt, the suites were big and spacious. My bed was turned down every evening with a chocolate left on the pillow. We had breakfast in the hotel every morning and there was always a great choice of food. Very close to shops and... More

Me and my girlfriend decided to celebrate New Year (2012 to 2013) in St. Petersburg and stayed in Taleon. First, the location of the hotel is perfect. Walking distance from Hermitage (Winter Palace), right on the Nevsky Prospekt, close to many amenities like Gostinny Dvor (kind of shopping mall), Russian Museum and of course metro station. Second, as the building... More

We stayed for 1 night at the end of our trip. We loved the hotel-excellent location, no road noise given that we were on Nevsky, staff very hospitable, very tolerant of us having a baby with us. Room (a classic) was really lovely-loads of space and a world away from the bland "chain" hotel rooms you can get. Couple of... More

Very opulently restored in a very good location. Big rooms, good 5 star service, but lacks a personal touch and the feeling of being "home", when you return to the hotel. You do feel very pampered, however.

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
