Location,staff,rooms,bathrooms and spa were all first class.There are 2 reasons why we have not given an excellent rating overall; 1.The toiletries provided were very cheap and nasty-a complete contrast to the large ornate beautiful bathroom!!!!!.When you pay 5 star prices you expect good quality toiletries. 2.The rooftop restaurant was closed for 3 out of the 4 nights of our stay....

I thought this hotel was amazing – from the fact that we were upgraded to the lavish executive suite to the swimming pool on the roof, but my +1 offered to give the Taleon Imperial Hotel 4 stars only, and here’s why: - When we entered the hotel on arrival, no-one offered to help with our suitcases.

Stayed here 4 nights on a tour. Good size room and v comfy beds with lovely soft pillows. Very grand with lots of chandeliers. However bathroom looked very nice but was completely impractical. The bath was about two foot high so difficult to get into and out of, and the bath top is higher than the surround so when you... More

I am staying in this hotel with my wife.

From the airport the Taleon is a good forty minute taxi ride (budget around 1,000 rubles) and upon arrival the doorman swiftly took care of the bags and led us through to reception. The hotel is in a fantastic location - directly on one of the main streets with just a few minutes walk needed to reach some of the... More

This was a very splendid hotel. Our room was large and the bathroom was huge with underfloor heating and separate bath and shower. It was quite a walk to our room along softly carpeted corridors, but there were automatic light sensors down the corridors, which was a sensible idea. The wifi was super quick, a change from our Moscow hotel.... More

The Taleon is a perfectly located hotel in the heart of St. Petersburg. It was formerly a palace. The whole interior was magnificent. The room we had had a bathroom you could rollerskate in with marble floors (heated), heated towel racks, separate tub and huge shower, heavy draperies and a view of Nevsky Prospect. The food is superb and the... More

This hotel is a dream. Everything you need is there. Luxurious rooms, gentle staff, high quality products, comfortable beds and a classic relaxing atmosphere. Amazing spa with views of the city skyline. Perfect position to visit everything. I would strongly recommend this hotel. If you book in advance you get a good price too.
