The hotel's location is on the main Nevskiy Avenue within a 10 minute walk from The Hermitage, 15 minutes from St Isaacs and close to the shops, restaurants and bars. The hotel has a wonderful swimming pool with a glass roof. Breakfast had a wide choice and always well stocked. My rooms had a large bathroom with bath and shower,... More

We stayed at the Taleon Imperial for five nights while in St. Petersburg. It is in a beautiful old building but the rooms are modernized and very spacious and comfortable. From the hotel, the Hermitage is an easy walk. Boat trips on the canals and rivers are at the doorstep of the hotel and there are many good restaurants nearby.... More

I think it more of a 4 star hotel compare to the hotel we stayed in Moscow (Radisson royal hotel) although it's a small hotel with small rooms, it is beautiful inside and relaxing, but it is my first day in hotel and I had some problems with the shower and sleeping because I could hear some sounds from the...

One of the bests we ever stayed! We settled for three nights. Enjoyed it very much. The bathroom was as large as bedroom in other 5 star hotels. Lobby was huge and stylish; service, cordial; location, excellent: very convenient to many important sites/stores/attractions.

I cannot actually fault this hotel, it is just not really the style of hotel that I prefer. Over the top, more marble than you could possible ever imagine, giant neptunes in the lobby, huge bedrooms, and confusing layout, loads of corridors, and doors, and cut throughs all over the place. Having said that, the rooms are clean, the beds... More

I liked the hotel and location. Rooms are gorgeous and everything was nice. A huge disappointment was the price of swimming pool. I have stayed in many hotels around the world and swimming pool is always free. Unfortunately despite the website of this hotel states that guests can use swimming pool and sauna without restrictions I have been told on... More

We were very pleased with their services. Specially the concierge. She was very helpful in organizing all our tours & tickets. A beautiful merchants mansion turned into a hotel. Great location. Near the promenade to the Hermitage. Very elegant.

This hotel is in an excellent location for all major sights. However, the conversion has left the hotel very dark inside, with little natural light. Our room was spacious, but the sitting area was too dark to use. The old furniture and traditional decoration was not to my taste. We considered using the restaurant but felt it would be very...

Large rooms with traditional furniture, palace fully refurbished. A few steps from the Ermitage museum, St Isaac and most places of interest in St Petersburg. Great service which is rare in Russia. Smiles are at a premium in the rest of town, but always welcoming at the Taleon. They will give you a letter of invitation to get a visa,... More
