This magnificent, romantic hotel is downtown, next to St. Isaac's Cathedral and a 10-minute walk from the Hermitage. Built in art nouveau style between 1910 and 1912, the Astoria was one of St. Petersburg's most renowned hotels before the Revolution. The original internal structure of the hotel was gutted and rebuilt in the early 1990s during extensive renovations. It's popular among VIP guests, including presidents of states, businessmen, and celebrities. Museum-quality antiques decorate the splendid interior. The sauna at the hotel's spa center is free for the Astoria's guests. Note that the Astoria is physically connected to another fine but slightly less luxurious hotel, the Angleterre.
