St Petersburg Concierge
A warm welcome to the Hotel Astoria in the heart of St Petersburg from the concierge team.
You may have already planned your trip or are in the process of doing so; regardless, we are sure that we'll be able to assist you in making the most of your stay in St Petersburg with our wealth of knowledge of the city.
We love our beautiful city and we relish any opportunity to help guests of the hotel to get to know and appreciate the beauty and splendour of St Petersburg. Whatever your tastes or preferences in music, art, architecture and food, we will find something that will leave you with a memorable experience, which will only strengthen your desire to return to St Petersburg for more.
The Hotel Astoria is opposite St Isaac's Cathedral in the very heart of the city, a distinguishable landmark for those driving to St Petersburg. For visitors arriving by air there are two airports: Pulkovo, serving internal flights, and Pulkovo 2, the international airport. If you are not being met at the airport I would recommend that you reserve a hotel car for your transfer. Our preferred limousine provider Sixt company will guarantee the highest service and attention to you including:
• New BMW 5 and BMW 7 limousines
• English speaking professional drivers
• Complimentary refreshments and local newspapers on board
• Personalized information-kit from our Concierge team
The airport pickup charge is from Rubles 3.300,00 Rubles, depending on the time and transport required. We would require the flight details and arrival time, and our driver will meet you in the arrivals' area. Travelling time to the Hotel Astoria from St Petersburg airport is approximately 25 to 45 minutes, depending on the traffic.
Contrary to popular belief, you can purchase most items in St Petersburg that you would expect to find in any European city; some may be a little harder to locate than others, but we will find them for you. One thing that you cannot purchase here is a Russian visa. You must have this in order to enter the country, so please ensure that you have this available for presentation when entering and leaving Russia.
We have listed some recommendations on dining, entertainment, current events and tourist attractions in St Petersburg that you may find useful during your stay at the hotel. As you would expect, we can arrange tickets and supply further information on all these.
We look forward to welcoming you to St Petersburg and the Hotel Astoria, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
