“Perfect location with elegance.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

The Astoria offers an exceptional location with modern luxurious bedrooms. The hotel is in the centre of the town which makes it easy to walk to all the tourist sights, the nearest being St. Issacs Cathedral with its golden dome in front of the hotel..
All the staff were very friendly, but some of them seemed to struggle understanding or speaking english and the service on several occasions was very slow in the restaurant and bar.
The food in the restaurant was of an excellent standard, I would recommend it for dinner or lunch even if you weren't staying in the hotel.
I would certainly recommend the hotel to friends or business associates, thank you for a most pleasant stay.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 439 and our friends in room 409, both were stylish and quiet.

I did not care for this hotel I have stayed at other Rocco forte hotels in Rome ( the de Russie ) and. Berlin and Florence but this was not in the same class . Small rooms
Old hotel . Pool in a closed wing of another building and very expensive - 4 seasons just opened and is a better choice

This hotel has a very beautifully designed rooms as all Rocco Forte hotels. The historical building is very well located close to all tourist attractions. Somehow is this beautiful hotel a tourist trap. Prices are very high per example car services are three times as expensive as the taxi outside the hotel. So be carefully. Most guest there are 60 years old and over so you stay in really historical atmosphere.
Needs refreshment.

Stayed April 2014, traveled on business

The Astoria offers exceptional hospitality, reminiscent of years gone by, traditional and yet modern, relaxed sophistication with understated style, luxuriously earthy but definitely not rustic, beautiful Volga linen with splashes of vibrant colour - quiet and relaxing. The Astoria is a St Petersburg landmark in its own right and is situated across from another great landmark, St Isaacs Cathedral of which one has beautiful views from most of the rooms. The impressive black and white prints of famous ballet dancers in action in the bedrooms are extra special and make the link with St Petersburg so much more real. The staff are all exceptionally welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. The food on offer is very good and especially the breakfast offers something very different from the normal five star fare. A fantastic hotel befitting a beautiful city like St Petersburg!

Room Tip: a view of the St Isaacs is definitely special!

Coming to St Petersburg for the Mariinsky Ballet Festival, I stayed at the Rocco Forte Astoria which is of walkable distance to the theatre. One of only two historic hotels of St Petersburg, it retains much of the 100-year old features and yet has the most modern equipped interior. Rooms are large, many overlook the St Isaac Cathedral Square. Like other Rocco Forte hotels, the interior design combines modern convenience with the local flavor, here perhaps it is ballet and rooms have ballet photos. The hotel also has its private balcony at both Mariinsky and Mikhailovsky theatres. There are many touches of thoughtfulness, in service and in décor, down to minor details, even bottled water is of their own special design. Hospitality is incredible. They even have a guest name card with name prepared when you enter the restaurant for breakfast and they place the card on your table, so that you feel like a VIP. Great hotel in every aspect. Also most staff are fluent in English, probably more so than any other Russian hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with view of the Cathedral...no noise, great double-glazing.

Fantastic hotel, rooms were large and beautiful views. Great location. Flawless hospitality. I was immediately impressed with the staff upon arrival: professional and efficient, yet oh-so natural and with no sense of pretension. I would defintely recommend this hotel.
