Tasty food, without diversification on menu. Good tomato soup and beef stroganoff, but you need to take care if you ask a fresh orange juice, it will be more expensive than a plate, they charged me 750 ru, and just for you to have an idea 1 salad season costs 570.....1 beef stroganoff just 900, what madness, that.

Words can't do this exceptional Hotel justice. You can view their pictures online , you can see that it's a 5 star hotel but you must experience it. If you ever travel to St. PETERSBURG RUSSIA this hotel is your must stay.

Location is excellent, close to Winter Palace,other attractions and many diverse restaurants. The hotel is totally OTT with wonderful decorations throughout - so much so that several couples had their wedding photos taken here during our 5 day stay. Breakfast is extensive and in my view better than most hotels - a very extensive choice. Obtaining tea and coffee at... 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

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.
