Rocco Forte Hotel Astoria in St. Petersburg

The Astoria is probably St. Petersburg's most famous hotel. Opened in 1912, it was a byword for luxury in the last years before the October Revolution, and has recently been restored to its former glories as part of the Rocco Forte Collection. In 2007 it featured on Forbes' Valentine's Day list of the most romantic hotels in the world.

Enjoying a fantastic central location right opposite the golden dome of St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Astoria Hotel is superbly situated for sightseeing, with the Hermitage, Nevsky Prospekt, and the Mariinsky Theatre all in comfortable walking distance. The Astoria offers 211 luxurious rooms and suites furnished in an elegant and homely style, as well as full range of 5-star amenities and services, including top-class spa and gym, and opulent event space including the hotel's sumptuous Ballroom and Winter Garden. Excellent meeting facilities are available at the neighbouring Angleterre Hotel. The Astoria Hotel's main Davidoff Restaurant is one of the finest places in St. Petersburg to experience traditional Russian haute cuisine.
