About Lotte Hotel St Petersburg
Housed within an 18th-century mansion on the river’s edge, Lotte Hotel St. Petersburg stands on the pivotal St. Isaac’s Square. A meander away from the legendary Hermitage museum and historic Mariinsky theatre, this elegant retreat could not be better located.
Inside, rooms are classic with decorative throws and upholstered benches with views over the Moika River and St. Isaac’s Square itself.
Escape the city buzz and hole up in the spa. Curl up in a hanging chair next to the subterranean pool. There are four treatment rooms and two saunas to help you rejuvenate after days of touring the city. The salon is a convenient stop-off before a night of ballet.
Take in the city skyline with a vodka cocktail on the 5th-floor bar. Restaurants include MEGUmi, one of the city’s best Japanese eateries serving salmon carpaccio and two dozen types of sake. The Lounge’s stained-glass cupola stands out as much as its multi-station breakfast buffet.
