Amazing Hotel in Fantastic locationPosted 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 LocationPosted 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.

Top Notch Hotel and Wonderful StayPosted Aug 10, 2013
Pros: Beautiful, if delightfully quirky, interiors, excellent service central location, meets all your needs.
Cons: Concierge service--better than service in general in Russia, but staff should be trained to think positively about assignments and not put up hurdles.
Location: Verry central location. Hermitage, Russia Museum are five minutes away. Shopping close by. Better location than Grand Hotek ir Hotel Astoria.
The Taleon is first rate--luxurios, and it's physical/architectural quirks make it endearing. The service was excellent and attentive. One could wish for less officiousness and more personality and facial empathy in some cases, but then, this is Russia and by comparison with other transactions in Russiam those with Taleon staff were quite satisfactory. We had a delightful dinner the first night in the main restaurant, and the one waiter (who was also bar tender) went out of his way to provide terrific service. The food was excellent, and fortunately, only one other table in this spacious and elegant setting was occupied, so we had no service problems. Our suite was elegant and well-serviced. The front desk met all our needs. The concierge was not as helpful as one usually expects, but in general, met hour needs. The breakfast was the standard European upscale hotel buffet. Good but expensive---not included in hotel rate, Altogether, we highly rate the Taleon as the place to stay in SP if you want top service and excellent central location (a 5 minute walk to the Hermitage, Russia Museum, and hudrofoil to Peterfhof). With about 70 rooms, it's much smaller and far more intimate than the Grand Hotel, for example.

Georgeous, empty hotelPosted Aug 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
Georgeous hotel in excellent location. One curious observation. We saw no other guests except 4 or 5 late night consumers at the bar. There was an attentive and helpfuil concierge, several competent and cheerful front desk attendants, but also very watchful plain clothes security guards who looked as if they could have handled 007, M16, CIA or anyone who might cause trouble. This led us to wonder about intrigues, and past Sopviet era security precautions. I would return and investigaste further.
