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.

Five Star Hotel on St. Isaac's Square

by written on October 8, 2005

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. If you're in the mood for a longer walk, see Peter the Great monument, also known as the "Bronze Horseman", in the Decembrist Square located on the River Neva waterfront!

The Astoria Hotel was built in 1912 in the Art Deco style, and is now considered the flagship hotel of the Sir Rocco Forte hotel chain. The hotel features two restaurants, the Astoria Restaurant and the Winter Garden and even serves afternoon tea in the hotel lobby. In the hotel you'll also find a currency exchange, souvenir shop and a nightclub. Rooms are provided with cable TV, mini-bars, safe and hairdryers.

Click on the accompanying picture to enlarge the photo and see the hotel behind the Nicholas I monument. The 241 rooms here are exceptionally expensive, but prices differ with the accommodation type and the time of the year. Expect prices to start at USD$250 and may go up to $550 for suites!! For that kind of money, ask for a room with a view of St. Isaac's Square or one of the other exceptional sights in the area.

Directions: St. Isaac's Square. Can be reached by the Nevsky Prospeckt or Ploschad/Sadovaya Metro.

by written on May 18, 2003

Art Nouveau style hotel right in the heart of both the historical and business centers of the city, within 10 minutes' walking distance from the main city attractions and the shopping area, 30 minutes from the airport by taxi.

The "Astoria" makes an ideal starting point from which to discover Saint-Petersburg, Russian history and culture. It was in December 1912, that the doors of the hotel "Astoria" (architect Fedor Lidval) were First opened to the public. The luxurious interiors in the "Northern Modern" style have always impressed the wealthiest and most respected of Russian high society.

Unique Quality: The "Astoria" enjoys superb location in the very heart of the city, situated on Saint Isaac's Square opposite the impressive Saint Isaacs Cathedral, the Mariinsky Palace and the equestrian statue of Nicholas the 1. The proximity of the Senate and Synod, the Admiralty, the offices of major companies and banks underline the importance of the hotels location in the city.

Finest Hotel in Russia

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 25, 2002

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.
