“Rocco Forte Hotel Astoria St Petersburg”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Stepping into the Astoria is like stepping into the luxury and atmosphere of the past. The reception staff are very welcoming and helpful. All the staff are very professional and the hotel is very well run. Tanya who manages the very cosy Lichfield Bar is very knowledgable and entertaining. The breakfasts have lots of choice and are cooked to order. Choose the main dining area as the small side one is not so comfortable or well stocked. The rooms are very well furnished and spotless. The bathrooms are marble with very good facilities.The best time to visit is during the White Nights in July when it does not get dark until about 4 am. The hotel is within walking distance of several sights and has buses two minutes away including the City Tour Hop OnHop Off Bus.

Room Tip: We have stayed in this Hotel twice - in a Junior Suite with a view of St Isaacs Cathedral the first...

I have spent 3 hectic days for business and everything was perfect. Staff is very friendly and proactive, especially the Concierge, she was very helpful to manage transportation, restaurant booking , etc. I would recommend that hotel for leisure or business trip. Rooms are clean and bright, very comfortable.

Thoughtful staff, our suite facing St Isaacs Cathedral was wonderful. Walking distance to all attractions. Bar food was overpriced. All in all a very good choice for travelers looking for the best of St. Petersburg.

We had booked a room at the Angleterre Hotel, but were upgraded to the Astoria upon our arrival. We had a wonderful stay. Reception staff are top notch and couldn't do enough to help us. The room was beautiful. My husband joked that using the bath towels was a experience in weight lifting.

We did not eat in the hotel, so cannot recommend the bar or restaurant. We did eat at a little place called Garcon which was superb. Go out of the hotel turn right and turn right at the next corner. The croque monsieur is delicious as is the lemonade.

If you are looking for a convenience store, turn left when you leave the hotel, and turn left at the first corner. About halfway down the street on the right is a 24 hour market.

A lovely location. Make sure to visit St. Isaac's cathedral. For 100 rubles, you can climb 262 steps to the observation deck. Well worth the effort!

Room Tip: We stayed in 436. Not a great view, but very quiet. Our friends stayed in either 713 or 716 and had...

We had a wonderful stay at Astoria .
Reception. Concierge , Room services, cleanliness were more than perfect . They made the diference .
The hotel is located in the very heart of the city.
Rooms are quite small . So if you need space just ask for a" Deluxe superior room"

Room Tip: Rooms aren't large .So if you need space get a "Deluxe Sperior Room".

Well, it's that hotel you should definitely live in. Yes, it's not cheap, but the level of everything is so high you won't regret. It's service, rooms, food- they make it perfect. There's a sauna, gym and swimming pool in sister building Angleter. The hotel is in the middle of the everything.

I only stayed for one night, but wish it could have been longer. Beautiful hotel in excellent location, great service, from the ladies at reception to roomservice and the staff in the bar, all equally friendly and helpful. Exceptional. Had a beautiful room on the 4th floor, with high ceilings, great bathroom and a magnificent view of St Isaac Cathedral.
Hope to return soon!
