St Petersburg’s top luxury hotels

With all eyes on Russia for the World Cup 2018, it’s time to check out St Petersburg’s luxury hotel scene, which could leave the most demanding traveller spoilt for choice. Think boutique properties, palatial residences and super sleek five-star hotels – accommodation abounds in this Russian city and high-end travellers are catered for in abundance.

Among the most revered locally is the Hotel Astoria – located next to St Isaac’s Cathedral. The Rocco Forte property dates back to 1912 and each of stylish bedrooms and suites have been individually appointed by Olga Polizzi.

Meanwhile, Belmond Grand Hotel Europe is one of the city’s most iconic landmarks, with 266 luxury rooms and suites, unique dining options and dazzling event spaces.

Located on Nevsky Prospekt, at the heart of historic St Petersburg, the property’s sumptuous interiors have attracted Russia’s high society for more than a century and featured in Bond movie GoldenEye. It also employs Russia’s only full-time vodka sommelier.

For a riverside view, groups can opt for the Kempinski Hotel Moika 22, located in the historic heart of the city the Moika River, overlooking the Hermitage Museum and Palace Square.

For a more palatial experience, the Four Seasons St Petersburg (main image and below) takes some beating – think marble lions guarding a 19th century palace, within the historic Admiralteysky district and within striking distance of the Mariinsky Theatre.

This property offers a series of culinary options within its decadent walls – from the delightful patisserie served in the glorious atrium of the Tea Lounge, through to Japanese dishes at the sleek Sintoho restaurant, wine and Italian flavours at Percorso or simply classic vodka-based cocktails at Xander Bar.
