I stayed in this lovely hotel with my princess, two separate times within a month. One of those times happened to be my birthday. We were on business but this didn't keep us from enjoying this lovely hotel and the most beautiful city in Russia.
We had different rooms in our two stays with one of them being real huge, apartment like, with two floors. It seemed as if this room was from a different generation to be honest but still as it was only for one night, we tried to make the best of it. The second room we stayed in was more like a hotel room. It was also very big in Hotel standards with a separate living room, bed room and very nice bathroom made out of marble.
It seems as if this hotel is huge in size and also it seems as if it is of a different lifetime. I don't know for sure how old it is but it must be very old, which makes it so historic. It is very impressive how well maintained this hotel is and how well it manages to combine the new with the old and as a result not losing it's attractiveness.
I have not eaten anything in the hotel so I can't review the food but in terms of location, service, and architectural and sculptural beauty this hotel is top notch.
When spending your day to day life in a crazy and demanding city as Moscow, the beauty and calmness of St. Petersburg is just like prescribed medicine for the body and soul. In this case, the Taleon Imperial seems like the perfect choice or doctor.
