St. Petersburg's 5-star hotels

Find five-star comfort in St. Petersburg

While Russia's star rating system for hotels differs considerably from its international counterparts, 5-star hotels in St. Petersburg for the most part give a good account of themselves in their ability to meet travelers' expectations for comfort and amenities. Quality within the 5-star class does vary considerably, however, and in some cases there's very little justification for this high accolade.

Alternatively, you can select from the luxury hotels in our own classification system to be sure that the property you choose fully conforms to international 5-star standards.

1/7, Michailovskaya Ulitsa, St. Petersburg, 191011, RussiaShow on map 894 m
Nearest metro: Gostiny Dvor, Nevsky prospekt
Taking pride of place among St. Petersburg's 5-star hotels thanks to its rich history and beautiful Art Nouveau interiors, the Grand Hotel Europe has been a byword for luxury in the city for well over a century. Located on Nevsky Prospekt, a short walk from the Hermitage and other major attractions, the hotel continues to offer very elegant and comfortable accommodation, exceptional on-site dining, and a full range of modern five-star amenities. »»»

Located close to Moscow Railway Station, and thus a little further east along Nevsky Prospekt and a little further from the top sights and attractions than its main 5-star rivals, the Corinthia St. Petersburg is nonetheless a first-class luxury hotel, especially attractive to business travelers thanks to its state-of-the-art meeting and event facilities, as well as spacious guest rooms fitted in a simple but sumptuous contemporary style, and a full range of up-market leisure facilities. »»»

Nearest metro: Admiralteyskaya
With its fun, vibrant interiors, excellent service efforts and superb location just round the corner from St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Domina Prestige Hotel has quickly established itself as among the best rated properties in St. Petersburg. One could quibble that the services and facilities don't quite fulfill the criteria for an international 5-star rating, but among its many attractions the Domina Prestige also boasts prices are generally ultra-competitive for the area.

Nearest metro: Admiralteyskaya
Occupying a magnificent 19th century mansion next to St. Isaac's Cathedral (and designed by the same architect), St. Petersburg's Four Seasons was opened in 2013 with the clear aim of being the city's most exceptional and luxurious 5-star hotel. As well as supremely elegant, classically styled guest rooms and suites, the hotel boasts a four-floor Spa and fitness centre, sumptuous dining venues and meeting space, and of course a prime downtown location. »»»

A modern hotel with a less than ideal location about 15 minutes' walk from Moscow Railway Station, the Grand Hotel Emerald cannot claim the atmosphere or convenience of St. Petersburg's best 5-star hotels, but does offer a good standard of standard business and leisure facilities including a large fitness centre with spa and swimming pool, and high quality conferencing and meeting venues. Guest rooms are not the freshest in terms of design, but still very comfortable. »»»

Situated merely steps from Palace Square and the Hermitage on the exceptionally picturesque Moyka River Embankment, the Kempinski Moika 22 has only been open for a decade, but swiftly found a place among the best 5-star hotels in St. Petersburg thanks to the reliable quality of its exemplary service and care of guests. Standard rooms are not the most luxurious, but elsewhere the Kempinski offers and full spectrum of superior amenities and facilities. »»»

14, Malaya Morskaya Ulitsa, St. Petersburg, 190000, RussiaShow on map 537 m
Nearest metro: Admiralteyskaya
Offering a great location between Nevsky Prospekt and St. Isaac's Cathedral, this extremely popular property is housed in an attractive historic building and does well to simulate the atmosphere of a grand historic hotel, although only opened in the mid 2000s. However, while the Petro Palace is often excellent value and also does its best to provide a full complement of business and leisure facilities, claims to 5-star status are a little far-fetched. »»»

Nearest metro: Gostiny Dvor, Nevsky prospekt
Housed in an elegant historic building on Nevsky Prospekt, St. Petersburg's Radisson Royal Hotel has never been in the same luxury league as its Moscow namesake. However, it is currently undergoing a major renovation which should see standards for service and amenities improve to international 5-star levels. Even before this, the hotel was reasonably popular for good-value superior accommodation and a fair range of services and facilities for business and leisure. »»»

Located opposite St. Isaac's Cathedral in elegant Art Nouveau premises, the Astoria Hotel has been a St. Petersburg landmark for over 100 years and, thanks to a long list of celebrities and world leaders among previous guests, remains probably the most famous of the city's 5-star hotels. While not as luxurious as some of its competitors, the Astoria boasts elegant and cozy interiors, celebrated fine dining, and a full range of superior business and leisure facilities. »»»

The flagship of the three hotels that Finnish chain Sokos operates in St. Petersburg, the Sokos Palace Bridge boasts an unusual and appealing location in the city's oldest neighborhood on Vasilevskiy Island - close to major visitor attractions but also very peaceful. Purists may object to the way the historic premises have been treated, but the hotel offers a great range of dining and leisure facilities, as well as comfortable and quite stylish contemporary guest rooms. »»»

Recently opened under the auspices of St. Petersburg's most famous visitor attraction, the Hermitage Hotel has an immediate disadvantage against the best 5-star hotels in St. Petersburg in its location, in a rather drab neighborhood in the south of the historic center. Nonetheless, the hotel offers very elegant rooms and suites, as well as a reasonable selection of superior facilities, including excellent event space particularly suitable for celebrations. »»»

St. Petersburg's first international apartment hotel, the Staybridge Suites shares an extensive range of business and leisure facilities, including state-of-the-art conference and meeting space, with the neighboring Holiday Inn Moskovskye Vorota. Accommodation, however, is definitely a class above, with very well equipped self-catering apartments and a range of tailored services including free laundry.

A renovated 18th century palace on Nevsky Prospekt, close to the Hermitage, St. Isaac's Cathedral and other major visitor attractions, the Taleon Imperial has the history and location to rival St. Petersburg's top 5-star hotels. Among its standout features are a spectacular rooftop swimming pool and Spa, as well as stunning historic venues for dining and events. In terms of service and comfort, however, the hotel does not always fully comply to international five-star standards.

Nearest metro: Vasileostrovskaya
A boutique all-suite property on Vasilevskiy Island, the Trezzini Palace has many attractions but unquestionably lacks the facilities and amenities that international travelers would expect from a 5-star hotel. What is does offer is 21 spacious and elegant suites, many of them with fantastic views across the Neva River. Beyond a restaurant and access to a Spa complex on the other side of town, however, there are no facilities to speak of. The location, while very attractive, is also not particularly convenient for public transport or most sightseeing.

One of the few 5-star hotels in St. Petersburg to eschew traditional styling and atmosphere for a brighter, more contemporary feel, the W St. Petersburg offers the W brand's signature combination of stylish interiors, excellent amenities for leisure and entertainment, and attentive, friendly service. Highlights of the W St. Petersburg include its exceptional location a few steps from St. Isaac's Cathedral and thriving roof-top terrace bar. »»»
