Hotel Information

  • Description


With its world-famous ballet and opera, and the White Nights festival in summer, the ‘Venice of the North’ is a year-round destination. At its heart lies the finest of the St Petersburg hotels — the Astoria. A city landmark since 1912, a list of illustrious guests is engraved in brass at reception. Follow in their footsteps through the historic corridors, where aristocratic traditions continue in contemporary surroundings. East meets West in the Astoria Café, where you can enjoy a light bite or a Russian extravaganza of caviar and champagne all-day. Outside, the hotel is just a stroll away from the Hermitage Museum and the city’s many canals, monuments and bridges.

Astoria Cafe: The restaurants offers European cuisine and classic Russian dishes with a modern twist. The decoration by Olga Polizzi includes dramatic prints from the Mariinsky Theatre, whose opera singers number among the hotel's guests. Equally celebrated is the wine cellar. Created 100 years ago, it offers one of the city’s finest champagne collections.
Lichfield Bar: Named after the celebrated lensman, Lichfield Bar is intriguingly clandestine. Burgundy drapes. Dark wood furnishings. Art Deco lights. Striking black and white nudes by Lord Lichfield. Sit back and admire them with a glass of ice cool vodka. Live jazz adds to the ambience.
Rotonda Lounge: The hotel's Afternoon Tea is so renowned, it has its own unique tea set. Artist Galina Shyliak created the Cobalt Cell pattern exclusively for Hotel Astoria. It’s now used to serve a range of loose leaf teas and selection of sandwiches, cakes and pastries. Rich blini pancakes and other light bites are also on the menu, along with hot and cold drinks. Your sweet tooth will be impressed by the chocolate fountain or a dessert from the Astoria Chocolatier.
Borsalino: Located in the adjacent Angleterre Hotel, Borsalino offers Italian cuisine with unique St Petersburg finesse. The Mediterranean menu includes recipes from more than ten Italian provinces. Caprese salad. Saffron risotto alla Milanese. Beef tagliata, rocket and sweet red onions. Rasberry panna cotta. Dine at your leisure with views of St Isaac’s Cathedral.
