World class luxury

Posted Aug 30, 2014
Pros: Everything: staff, rooms, restaurants, old interior decor, the spa, gym and swimming pool
Cons: To have an ice machine on the premises to be used by guests by themselves and not to call room service when you need ice.
Location: The Taleon is a walking distance from most cultural and historic attractions of St Petersburg.
A1 experience from check in to check out. Great location close to 'must see' sites, museums and panoramas of the magnificent old imperial capital of Russia. The building is a well preserved and meticulously restored 18th century palace. It's worthwhile to spend several hours exploring and admiring the interiors. The hotel's atmosphere calls for 'slowing down', look around and enjoy staying in cozy luxury.

This is THE best hotel I have ever stayed at!

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: Everything - decor, location, valure for money, staff, room, etc.
Cons: Just one thing - I want tea-making equipment in my room next time. But that is a tiny criticism.
Location: Right on the Nevsky Prospect, by a charming canal and just 2 minutes walk from the square outside the Winter Palace.
Over the years I have stayed at a LOAD of hotels, all over the world, as I travel a very great deal with my job. Lots of them are very fine but this one, the Taleon Imperial, is my all time favourite! It has absolutely spectacular architecture indoors - just see the photos of the bar area with the statues and columns. Absolutely OTT but wonderful at the same time. Our room was great (just the best bathroom ever), the pool is superb, wi-fi was faultless, good breakfast and superb staff. Plus it is in the ideal locatoin to visit the Winter Palace / Hermitage or take a boat trip or walk to any of the other sites. I can totally recommend it without any hesitation whatsover. Hooray for the Taleon Imperial! Spasiba!!

Amazing Hotel in Fantastic location

Posted May 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
There are no adequate superlatives to describe this Hotel! Food was fantastic (Tomato Soup with King Prawns, yes I know! but fantastic). Only slight downside, as it was pre peak season not all the restaurants were open.

Good Location

Posted Feb 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel was located mid way between the sights and the shopping area/pubs. Friendly service from the hotel staff. The hotel was quiet when I was there and lacked some atmosphere because of that. Impressive interior in the lobby though

I would stay there again. Admittedly we were upgraded to a higher class of room however our overall impression of service was very good. The location is excellent.
