About the Hotel
Situated on Saint Isaac's Square opposite the exquisite cathedral, Hotel Astoria is a tribute to the rich history of St. Petersburg in Russia. As with all members of the Rocco Forte Hotels collection, this lavish property captures the authentic character of its locale. Many bedrooms offer stunning views over the square, and suites are adorned with paintings, sculptures and furnishings from the hotel's original art collection. At fashionable Davidov Restaurant, 20 assorted vodkas and the country's finest caviar highlight your tantalizing Russian dining experience. A tribute to sophisticated traveling, Hotel Astoria reflects the noble history of St. Petersburg, with interiors scrupulously designed to recreate the grandeur synonymous with this historic city.
Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, St. Petersburg is a wonderland of pastel-colored palaces, domed cathedrals and stately squares. Laced with canals, it boasts over 300 bridges and is known as "Venice of the North". A leisurely stroll from the hotel, you will discover a wealth of attractions, including the acclaimed Hermitage Museum and breathtaking Winter Palace. Shop along Nevsky Prospekt, attend a ballet performance at the Mariinsky Theater or day trip to the summer palaces just outside the city.
