Fodor's Review

An art-nouveau landmark, one of St. Petersburg's most renowned hotels before the Revolution, is once again a luxurious place to stay, with magnificently decorated guest quarters overlooking St. Isaac's Square through tall windows. Downstairs, lovely lounges are filled with antiques, the Davidoff restaurant serves Russian classics, and a spa and fitness center are state of the art. A staff well accustomed to attending to celebrities and heads of state delivers service fit

for royalty.

poor service, poor food

Make sure you stay as the Grand Europe (which has fantasic food and service). The Astoria should be avoided.

It's good enough for Thatcher, Lenin, and Norris

Next to the elevators are plates with the names of notables who have stayed at the Astoria. Among them where Marget Thatcher, Lenin, and (of all people) Chuck Norris.
