I spent my New Year in this Hotel Astoria..from 29 dec to 2 January 2018. it s a really good hotel,in an exclusive position..in the hearth of the city. BUT ! Although i bought a very expensive Suite..really nice..after few minutes my arrival...one boy arrived to my room, closed minibar by key and took the key away ! !!! And he didn’t say not even one word..or explication..took and left ! Really not nice behavior...in my opinion...for such an expensive accomodaytion ! Because..my room was prepayed. And also...atmosphere was very cold in the hall. And nothing interesting they prepared for new Year. Also..after first night they didn’t leave in my room nothing for breakfast ordination...and by phone..they didn’t speak English. So i had to go downstairs for breakfast.really not acceptable for a suite. Provided basic Wi-Fi connection is very slow....if you need a fast one..you must Pay ! Almost..you must pay also for the air you breath !

St Petersburg was blanketed in snow and was stunningly beautiful. The Astoria Hotel was excellent. The welcome and service throughout out stay was exceptional. Every single member of staff that we met was charming, polite and efficient. The Deluxe bedroom and bathroom were lovely and equipped with everything that we needed. The bar drinks were expensive but that is expected in a hotel of that quality. We ate in the Restaurant once. The waitress was marvellous and the food was good, but it was expensive. Breakfast was really good with a phenomenal range on offer. Highly recommended.

My father and I spent a relaxing and enjoyable 3 hours experiencing the afternoon tea. This was both time and money well spent. Teas, sandwiches, cakes and service all upto the high standard that was expected.

The Astoria is one of the best - if not the best - hotels I have ever seen and enjoyed. Perfect service, perfect food and drinks, perfect rooms. Great location and beautiful historic building. Due to the time of the year and the exchange rate, I paid around Euro 200 per night. Same quality in „normal“ circumstances in my opinion goes for justified five or hundred a night.

Only swimming pool in neighbor hotel was accessible however cold and not very big. Dry and wet sauna in Astoria lovely however, just no pool or indoor water Jacuzzi. Otherwise outstanding in every way.

Recently stayed at Hotel Astoria with my husband for a birthday treat and wasn't disappointed. Located in the heart of the historic centre with St Isaac's Cathedral directly opposite (what a view) hermitage museum & winter palace all in walking distance as well as lots of cozy eateries. Everything was great, room, restaurant, lounge area with piano (next time I'll have afternoon tea), and the Lichfield bar, but what was best was the service from reception to consierge to the bar staff and the cleaning team - friendly, efficient and professional. Organised our tickets Gisselle at the Mariinsky Theatre for us, booked taxis etc etc. 10 out of 10 from me.

Beautiful hotel in a perfect and stunning location. Our two day trip for our first time to St Petersburg was amazing in every way, the hotel was the cherry on the icing on the cake for us both. Would highly recommend this historic hotel for location, glamour and value for money.

Wonderful hotel, excellent experience, I would suggest it to anyone. Very clean and comfortable and the services were very high level. The position is excellent and the personnel always very nice and avaialbale.

Astoria is located super centrally, in walking distance from most of the sites of St Petersburg, with great views over St Isaacs Cathedral. The hotel boasts an amazing who's who list of past guests, the rooms are well appointed and the staff always eager to help.

I stayed in The Astoria in December, 1969, for 8 days, when the temperature was colder than cold and the heating system struggled. The hotel had been so neglected by the Soviets and yet it was such a beautiful and convenient place. The restaurant had few choices as well. But looking at it now it seems to have no rivals in the luxury class. The Hermitage is a short walk away and the views seem so grand. What a wonderful restoration. So, if in '69 it was still a good choice now it is beyond that. Thank you for this great opportunity to see it.
