Lovely Hotel, Great Location

Posted Dec 9, 2017
Cons: Cost of breakfast
There is nothing really to say, it was perfect. The only possible negative comment I could make was re the cost of breakfast. It was far to expensive and not worth the money. Everything else was fine.

Fabulous place in every sense

Posted Oct 23, 2017
Pros: Everything!!
Cons: The website so that sells the hotel better but then again maybe not as we would like to keep this place a secret!!
Location: Fantastic location in the heart of the Historic region on Nevsky Prospect which is the Champs Elycee of St Petersberg- we walked
We loved it from the moment we entered the palatial hall way - the website does do it justice as it is so much better than we had imagined. To be able to stay in an original Palace was so lovely and we swam everyday and only once had to share the pool!! Beauty and hairdressers were terrific too. The staff were exceptional.

Great hotel in downtown Saint Petersburg

Posted Jul 8, 2017
My parents and I had a fantastic stay at this hotel. The rooms resembled those of a palace (from the furniture to the drapes to the tiles in the bathroom). The breakfast was outstanding and definitely exceeded our expectations (red caviar, etc). By the way, the swimming pool and spa are included in the price of the stay again which is great! The noise insulation of the rooms is incredible - never heard a sound from the street or the neighbors. The staff is very well trained.

Luxurious hotel in great location

Posted Apr 17, 2017
The Taleon is a very luxurious hotel in a former palace on Nevsky Prospect in the heart of St. Petersburg. You can walk to the Hermitage, Church on Spilled Blood and many of the main sites and attractions. Rooms feel like royalty and are spacious and comfortable with beautiful décor. The rooftop pool and facilities were closed for some reason which was disappointing but I was able to use the smaller pool and spa on the 2nd floor although only the steam room was functioning. Restaurants were very pricey so didn't eat there. Got a good deal on the room as it was off peak. If I returned I'd stay there again--great experience and location!

Wow - a Palace with very helpful staff

Posted Dec 3, 2016
Pros: Decor, Location, Staff.
Location: This is 5 minutes from the Hermiage
We stayed for a week, so we really got to know the place. The staff are very helpful. The rooms are elegant and comfortable. The restaurant is great. Everything else was magnificent. The interior has a style that is luscious and over-the-top, but still very enjoyable. The location is a 5 minute walk from the Hermitage. And finally, we had the Concierge help us with many things, all expertly handled. Perhaps the only quibble is that the wine list in the restaurant is priced about 3x to 4x normal. We drank a low cost Rose, and it was $80 per bottle. But I suspect this is a "Russia" thing - as in high tariffs or something, because all restaurants had high wine prices.
