Located in the very heart of St Petersburg, on the Moika River and opposite Palace Square and the Hermitage, Kempinski Hotel Moika 22 keeps alive the Winter Palace’s centuries-old tradition of welcoming guests with unique, personalised European service in the cultural capital of Russia.
The hotel is just a two-minute walk from the Nevsky Prospect and close to all major sights and shopping. Kempinski Hotel Moika 22 is housed in a Petersburg mansion, designed by Basil von Witte in 1853 during the reign of Tsar Nicholas I. During reconstruction, not only was the classical façade faithfully retained, but the luxurious atmosphere of imperial St Petersburg was brought back to life as well. The unique location of the panoramic restaurant “Bellevue” on Floor 9 of the hotel makes it one of the most inspiring places in the whole of St Petersburg. Sitting on the Summer Terrace at the Bellevue is like looking at a painting with the whole of St Petersburg spread out before one’s eyes.
A cultural and culinary landmark since 1875, Belmond Grand Hotel Europe enjoys an unrivalled location on Nevsky Prospekt. It is surrounded by glittering global attractions such as the Mikhailovsky Opera and Ballet Theater and the Russian Museum.
The hotel resounds with the echoes of gatherings staged here over the decades. Tsar Nicholas II entertained the King of Siam in the Krysha Ballroom; young Dmitri Shostakovich played a sonata for Sergei Prokofiev, and Grigori Rasputin was often spotted carousing in L’Europe restaurant with friends.
Gastronomic traditions are lavishly brought to life in the hotel’s five restaurants. In the Caviar Bar, a vodka sommelier pairs the finest caviar with ice-cold vodka. L’Europe has been welcoming diners since 1905. Admire its art nouveau décor while savouring European haute cuisine. At AZIA an enticing fusion of Asian cuisines is on the menu. Fire, steam, wok and tandoor combine to create delicious feasts. The Mezzanine Café serves light dishes, including treats from the hotel’s own chocolate factory. The Lobby Bar, with live entertainment every night, is open round the clock.
In honour of the great composer Petr Tchaikovsky, who honeymooned at the hotel in 1877, every Friday evening L’Europe hosts a gourmet dinner with a chamber orchestra and ballet duo performing scenes from Swan Lake.

The Angleterre is a partner of the Mikhailovsky Theatre. As part of this partnership, guests at the Angleterre have permanent access to the theatre’s best seats, in the Angleterre’s private box.
Novotel St. Petersburg is a regular official partner of the Mikhailovsky Theatre. The hotel belongs to the international hotel operator Accor and is located in the historic centre of the city, on a quiet street 100 metres from Nevsky Prospect and close to the city’s main attractions.
