Belmond Grand Hotel

The Grand Hotel Europe combines all of the splendor of a bygone age with deluxe modern facilities and the highest international standards of service. The first five-star hotel in Russia, the Grand Hotel is far more than simply a superlative hostelry--it is, like only a few hotels around the world, an integral part of the history and the culture of its city and its nation. Its roots date back to the 1820s, and for more than 150 years the Grand Hotel Europe has stood at the very center of the city's social, cultural, and commercial life. Completely renovated, the hotel is today more vital, more magnificent, and more enchanting than ever before.

The Grand Hotel Europe has played host throughout its lifetime to the great names of Russian history and to notable figures and leading personalities from all over the world. A favorite haunt of Tchaikovsky, Turgenev, Anna Pavlova, and Maxim Gorky, the hotel continues to this day to attract the rich, famous, and talented from around the globe. In 1996 alone, we were pleased to welcome President Bill Clinton, Chancellor Helmut Kohl, Prince Michael of Kent, the Prince of Malaysia, Sir Peter Ustinov, and Sharon Stone, as well as many other celebrities and VIPs.

In a city filled with stirring monuments and historic sites, the Grand Hotel Europe is proud to be numbered among the cultural landmarks of St. Petersburg. The building itself dates from 1824, with a preserved Baroque facade designed by the Italian architect Carlo Rossi as well as original art nouveau interiors. Great care was taken in the renovation to preserve the building's distinctive nineteenth century architecture, including its elegant main staircase as well as its private function rooms, its suites and bedrooms, and its stunning, landmark restaurants and bars.

Conveniently situated in the heart of St. Petersburg, we are within walking distance of the Winter Palace Square and Hermitage Museum. The Russian Museum, the Philharmonic Society, and the Moussorsky Opera and Ballet Theatre are only moments away. Our concierge will help you explore our intriguing and beautiful city by organizing sightseeing tours, arranging transportation, obtaining ballet and opera tickets, and securing restaurant reservations. For business travelers, we provide exceptional support facilities and services, as well as offering event planning for meetings, conferences and banquets in any of our outstanding function rooms.

As the city of St. Petersburg reawakens to its vibrant history and its tradition as one of the cultural centers of Europe, the Grand Hotel Europe will help you discover a unique blend of the Citys newfound energy and natural warmth, while guaranteeing the very best standards of hospitality and service. From the moment you arrive, we promise to envelop you in our time-honored tradition of gracious Russian luxury.

Room Info

Standard and Superior Classic Rooms

One unique benefit of the hotel's restoration is that even the Grand Hotel Europe's standard Classic rooms vary in size and in layout, maintaining the hotel's historic character and reflecting its fascinating architectural heritage. Each of the Classic rooms comprises an entrance way, a bedroom with seating area, and a bathroom. All have twin, double, or Grand Lit beds, with Swedish duvets and coverlets in clean pastel hues. Moreover, each room is fully equipped with a mini-bar , a hairdryer, a television with satellite reception and a movie channel, a telephone with international direct dial facility and voice mail, a writing desk, and comfortable armchairs in which to relax. For additional comfort, the tiled floor of each bathroom is heated. Plus, you'll find that all rooms are equipped with safes, air conditioning and fax modem lines. The hotel's 212 Classic rooms vary in size from 16 to 29 square meters. Of these, 99 are equipped with twin beds, 49 with doubles, and 64 with Grand Lits.

Belle Chambres

The hotel's Belle Chambres are distinguished for retaining the generous spaces and classical style of the nineteenth century. While these rooms vary in size and in layout, they are on average about twice the size of the standard room. The rooms have parquet floors, spacious seating areas with armchairs and a sofa, and large windows facing onto historic Nevsky Prospekt--all of which contribute to their extraordinarily light and airy ambience. The furnishings of the Belle Chambres are antique and feature period reproduction pieces; the twin or Grand Lit beds are covered with Swedish duvets and coverlets in tasteful pastel shades. The Belle Chambres are, in addition, equipped with all of the amenities enjoyed in the Classic rooms. The hotel's 19 Belle Chambres range in size from 31 to 45 square meters.

Terrace Rooms

High atop the hotel, on the fifth floor and looking out over St Petersburg's enchanting skyline, are our Terrace rooms. These rooms are of similar layout, style, and size (20 square meters) to our Classic rooms, with the exception that they are graced as well by balconies. Those facing Arts Square enjoy striking views of the Church of the Spilt Blood, one of St Petersburg's most beautiful landmarks. All Terrace Rooms are fitted with satellite television, mini-bars, hairdryers, telephones with international direct dial facility, in summer, terrace furniture and of course the amenities of the Classic rooms. The hotel's 17 Terrace rooms are all equipped with double beds.

Penthouse Suites

These split-level, modern style upstairs are ideal for longer stays and for working visits, as they separate the bedroom from the lounge and working area below. The penthouse suites are furnished in soft shades of rust or blue and decorated with modern Russian paintings. All of the suites have double beds or Grand Lits, a sofa and chairs, and a writing desk. In addition, the suites are equipped with mini-bars, TVs with satellite link and a movie channel, hairdryers and telephones with international direct dial facility and voice mail. Each of the 22 suites measures 55 square meters and features safes, air conditioning and fax modem lines; 20 are furnished with double beds and 2 with Grand Lits.

Presidential and Imperial Suites

The full grandeur of St Petersburg at the turn of the century is preserved in the Lidvall and the Rossi suite. Furnished in the classical style, with antique oil paintings, clocks and decorative ornaments, these suites are suitable for meetings, for entertaining, and simply for relaxing. Both the Lidvall and the Rossi suites have accommodated figures of international stature, including several heads of state as well as many notable artists, business leaders, entertainers, and other celebrities. Each of the suites measures 67 square meters and comprises an entrance hall, a guest bathroom, an anteroom, and a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom.

Junior & Executive Suites

The junior and executive suites of the Grand Hotel Europe vary considerably in size and layout, but all share the historic features that were carefully restored during the hotel's renovation. Antique furniture is used throughout, and the colour and style of the decor reflects in all of its aspects the elegance and dignity of turn-of-the-century Tsarist Russia. All of the suites comprise an entrance hall, a lounge, a bedroom and a bath; our larger suites have in addition a guest washroom. All of the suites are of course equipped with satellite television and a movie channel, international direct dial telephones and voice mail, mini-bars, hairdryers, safes, air conditioning and fax modem lines.
