Best Trip ever !
It was my first trip to st. Petersburg with my wife and our little 2 yr old daughter. Thanks to all the hotel staff who made our trip an unforgettable one and special thanks to Karina who was the first person who we met at the reception, such as sweet person ! There is no better place to be in St. Petersburg other than the Taleon Imperial Hotel!

Very Good8.0
Good hotel, in the centre of the main tourist area
Very nice hotel, not quite 5-star by UK standards, but very good none-the-less. The superior rooms are large and comfortable (although the 'queen bed' is actually two singles pushed together, with two single duvets, and a queen mattress had to be requested over the top). The rooftop pool is excellent and the staff are generally friendly and helpful. The room was good value, but any extras (in the bar, or room service) are incredibly expensive, e.g. £8 for a cup of hot chocolate, £9-10 for a shot of relatively ordinary Vodka.

Luxurious, convenient hotel (visa warning)
The hotel was very nicely located, just a 5-minute walk from the Hermitage. Our room was spacious and luxurious and the staff were very accommodating. We arrived many hours before check-in with our 6-month old baby and they let us enter the room, since it was ready. The staff answered all our questions about sightseeing and helped us to make dinner reservations. We also got a babysitter while we went to the ballet and our baby was very happy when we came back. I would, however, say that the meals are overpriced for what is offered. Also, to anyone who is taking the ferry from Helsinki without a visa, we encountered many issues at first because we were told that we were not allowed to stay in the hotel without a visa. It might be better to call the hotel beforehand or the ferry line to avoid issues on arrival.
