Astoria Hotel

The historic Astoria Hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in St. Petersburg, boasting some of the finest amenities and one of the best downtown locations in the city. Under the management of the RF Hotels International group the Astoria has recently undergone an extensive renovation program, and now not only offers its guests charming turn-of-the-century interiors, but all the modern facilities and services one would expect from a world-class 5-star hotel. As a member of the Rocco Forte Luxury Collection, the hotel combines stunning Art Deco architecture, modern spacious rooms, fine dining and an excellent location just a few minutes walk from St. Petersburg's major downtown attractions; the State Hermitage Museum's Art Gallery, Nevsky Prospekt and the Mariinsky Opera and Ballet Theater.
