The Experience

The Taleon Imperial Hotel

The only lodging in St. Petersburg providing accommodations in a czarist-era palace. Restored and modified by some of Russia’s finest artistic talent, the hotel opened in May 2003 in time to celebrate the city’s 300th anniversary.

Located in the business and historical heart of St. Petersburg, the grandeur of the Taleon Imperial Hotel defines the prominent intersection of the Moika River and Nevsky Prospect, the city’s main thoroughfare. The hotel is a five-minute walk from Palace Square, the State Hermitage Museum, St. Isaac’s Square and St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the Kazan Cathedral, and the Yusupov Palace.  Also nearby are some of the city’s finest shopping, including boutiques of upscale clothing, jewelry, and liquors. In summer, water taxis and speedboats wait at the quay in front of the hotel and offer a memorable tour of the city by water.

Taleon Imperial Hotel offers 89 rooms in different standards of splendor. The most opulent is the Premium Suite – of which there are only four rooms – followed by the Executive, Luxury Studio, Deluxe and Superior suites. Finally, there is the Superior room. Each suite and room has been individually designed and decorated with the finest Italian furnishings, and beautiful paintings adorn the walls.

Inside each suite and room you will find everything to meet your exclusive needs. The full array of five-star hotel services is provided, such as 24-hour personal butler service and housekeeping, in-room safe, interactive TV, air-conditioning, and Internet access.

The Taleon Imperial Hotel offers St. Petersburg’s finest dining. There are three venues open for dining: Taleon – the gastronomic restaurant with historical and stylish interior and impeccable service; Victoria – where one can enjoy traditional Russian cuisine and a breathtaking view from the terrace. Griboedov Gastro Bar offers the best in the city home-made Caucasian cuisine. The Atlantes Bar decorated by four gigantic Atlas offers open sandwiches, salads, starters, and an excellent selection of cognacs and Scotch whiskies accompanied with the roaring log fire crackling in the fireplace. The Atrium Café is an ideal place to sip coffee with friends and colleagues and try a wide range of desserts from the chef.

Located on the rooftop of the Taleon Imperial Hotel, the SPA offers a full list of amenities, including Finnish sauna, 20 meter swimming pool, gym and relaxation area.  Indulge yourself in massage and body treatments – ranging from the classic to the New Age – supervised by our qualified professionals.
