in my opinion , The Taleon Imperial is the only luxury club hotel in Russia, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World and Virtuoso groups. No other hotel in the world can compare to Taleon Imperial for the authentic beauty of its historical interiors. This unique quality is a source of great pride.
Here that I know and I want to tell to you about this hotel
Gala Halls and Lounges
The windows of the main enfilade overlook grand, festive Nevsky Prospekt. The Enfilade combines the presidential suites into a single space. The Imperial Hall, with a floor area of 380 m2, is located on the same floor.
The Imperial Hall was finished in the Neo-Classical style. It is a convenient facility with state of the art equipment that can easily accommodate large events with many participants. The Imperial can be converted into a concert hall, a room for conferences or presentations, a banqueting hall or ballroom.
The suite of state rooms on the Moika side of the third floor of the Taleon Imperial Hotel is also breathtakingly luxurious.
The Baccarat Hall has been decorated in the festive Baroque style, with its traditional double row of windows. The hall boasts moulded décor on the walls and ceiling, a ceiling painting by the famous St. Petersburg artist Vladislav Izmailovich, a white Italian marble fireplace, enormous mirrors, unique crystal torchères ordered by the mansion’s former owners, the Yeliseyevs, from the Baccarat factory in France. The meticulously restored parquet floor was made of rare kinds of hard wood.
The Golden Drawing Room, decorated in the Rococo style, is a more intimate place than the Baccarat Hall. Small paintings on the ceiling showing cupids at play; gilded stucco, mirrors, chandeliers and crystal wall lamps create a light and airy atmosphere.
The Small Music Room has been decorated in an eclectic manner, with moulded garlands, depictions of music instruments, burning torches and plant ornaments A century ago this room was used for domestic concerts with a select group of invited guests.
The cozy atmosphere of the Library in the Yeliseyev mansion provides just the right mood for work. It is finished in the Moderne or Art Nouveau style popular in the early 20th century. Twining plant motifs have been used in decoration of the ceiling, the carved patterns on the fireplace, and elements of the authentic French furniture made in 1903 in the famous workshop of Paul Alexandre Dumas. The Walnut Drawing Room has stained glass windows depicting French King Henry II and his mistress Diane de Poitiers. Walnut furniture and panels recreate the atmosphere of the French Renaissance.
Restaurants and Bars
The Atlantes Bar in a Neo-Baroque style in the hotel lobby is named after the four gigantic Atlas statues that support the atrium ceiling and are reflected in the mirror-polished marble floor.
The Taleon Imperial Hotel restaurants have a fine ambiance and provide everything needed to make each moment memorable. The festive atmosphere of the Taleon Restaurant, impeccable service, an extensive wine list, a collection of rare brandies, the best Cuban and Dominican cigars and high-class European cuisine will satisfy even the most demanding of guests.
To enjoy a wide range of historical and gastronomic impressions, visit the Victoria Restaurant to try unique dishes made according to old Russian recipes and dine on the terrace overlooking the historic centre of St. Petersburg. The restaurant’s panoramic windows overlook the dome of the Kazan Cathedral, the city’s main cathedral, whose sacred icon of the Virgin of Kazan is said to have protected the city from enemy invasion on several occasions.
Georgian chefs in the Griboedov Restaurant prepare the best dishes from their national cuisine. I have tried the majority of dishes in its kitchen. Watch your fish or meat being grilled on an open fire. The grill and the oven for baking tasty Georgian bread are located directly in the dining area. The restaurant was named after the famous Russian writer and diplomat Alexander Griboedov, who rented an apartment on the top floor of the building when he returned to St. Petersburg with the Treaty of Turkmenchay, newly concluded with Persia.
SPA and Fitness
The Spa & Fitness Centre is located on the top floor of the Taleon Imperial Hotel. Its provide a panoramic view of Nevsky Prospekt, the Kazan Cathedral, St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the Church on the Spilt Blood, the Admiralty, the Arch of the General Staff and other famous architectural masterpieces.

The large 20-metre swimming pool is fitted with a state-of-the-art environmentally-friendly water treatment system. The pool area has a large glass dome ceiling letting in natural daylight, which makes you feel as if you were in the open air.
The gym is just the right place for guests who enjoy an active lifestyle.
