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

We stayed for several days and felt as though we had the entire place to ourselves. Luxurious, quiet, clean. The rooms are sumptuous: spacious, richly decorated, blackout curtains, luxe bath products, tons of closet/drawer space. We enjoyed meals at both the terrace restaurant and the dining room and were delighted by both: the food was outstanding and the service impeccable.... More

Nice hotel, which manages to keep local architecture features, while bringing the comfort of modernity (free of charge WIFI, International TV networks...). Ideal location, in the heart of the historical city. Very helpful staff.

I was at the Taleon in February 2013 with my son for 5 nights. Rather than discuss the hotel, I will retell the events of the financial scam the Taleon tried on me. I booked online using the Taleon website 5 months in advance of the required date. I received a booking confirmation with no request to supply other information... More
