Part of the Rocco Forte Collection, the five-star Hotel Astoria is located in St Isaac's Square at the heart of St Petersburg's city centre.

Victoria is here to help give you the inside track.

The hotel is decorated in an elegant, contemporary style. Many of the 188 rooms and suites have views of St Isaac's Cathedral, and others overlook a quiet inner courtyard. All rooms have wooden parquet flooring and luxurious marble bathrooms. Breakfast and afternoon tea are served in the Rotonda Lounge, and the hotel's Astoria Cafe serves French cuisine with a Russian twist.

The stylish Lichfield Bar is open 24 hours a day, has live jazz music every evening and serves cocktails and chilled vodkas. Other facilities include a gym and a 7th floor spa with sauna and steam rooms and offering a variety of treatments and massages. Many of St. Petersburg's top attractions, including the Hermitage Museum, are just minutes' walk away.
