Well worth the expense!
What a wonderful hotel! The Astoria is pricey, but worth it. The rooms, lobby, restaurant, and bars are all decorated with deep dark woods, and full of antique furnishings. You can just smell the money everywhere.
Unique Quality: The room was furnished with old, beat up furniture and decor. I loved it, it was classic. I went out shopping and to dinner, when I got back, the bed was turmed down, a floormat and slippers were beside the bed, and a bottle of water and a glass were left on the night table. Very cool.

Not only is the Astoria hotel ranked as 5 stars, but it is in a 5-star location!! Adjacent to St. Isaac's Cathedral and the Nicholas I monument, it is within walking distance of Nevsky Prospeckt.

Finest Hotel in Russia
I stayed here in 2001 and at the time it was the most palatial and luxurious hotel in Russia. It has been there seince the 1700's and is the place to stay in St. Petersburg.
It is expensive but worth it.
Unique Quality: A real 5 star hotel. Terrific location. It is where Hitler planned to have his celebration dinner after the fall of Lenningrad. That did not quite turn out the way he planned it!
The restaurant is superb. The dining room is always packed with the best and most well heeled travelers in the area. One night while we were there the Chinese Ambassador and his party were in the restaurant.
Directions: St. Issac's Square and across from City Hall.
