The Astoria is a delightful meeting of new and classic design. The clean understated lines of its interiors give way to the stately gildings on the domes of St Isaac's Cathedral.
Sister property to the five star Astoria, the Angleterre Hotel has one of the best postcodes in St Petersburg. The hotel has been renovated, so perhaps lacks some of the original features found in the Astoria, but it makes up for this in value and views, sharing many communal facilities with its sister hotel. Many of its rooms have views of St Isaac's Cathedral, so you can admire the bronze dome of this architectural masterpiece over your morning coffee, while theatre enthusiasts can take advantage of the property's close proximity to the iconic Marinsky Theatre.

Junior and Deluxe Suites are also more spacious than the rooms categories, featuring a cosy lounge area. All rooms and suites are equipped with modern amenities including complimentary Wi-Fi, air conditioning, a TV, safe, mini bar and marble en suite bathroom. Classic and Executive rooms come with a queen size bed or twin beds, while the rest of the rooms and suites have king size beds.
