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

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.

Taleon imperial hotel is located in the Nevsky street and the best area of St. Petersburg. It is very close to Hermitage museum and you can walk from hotel to Hermitage in less than 10 minutes. 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
