Belmond Grand Hotel Europe has hosted dignitaries from all over the world since it first opened its Neo-Baroque doors in the late 19th century. Tchaikovsky honeymooned there, Anna Pavlova danced there, and more recent guests have included Bill Clinton and the Queen.

Lovingly restored in the 1990s, the Grand Hotel Europe is itself one of the chief historical monuments of the center of this fascinating city. The hotel is right in the center of St. Petersburg, within easy reach of the main cultural and historical monuments. Adjacent to Arts Square, the hotel has strong connections with the worlds of theatre, music, and dance. The Hermitage Museum is a short walk away.

The rooms are furnished in classical style, and feature period furnishings, comfortable seating areas, and marble clad bathrooms. Superior rooms offer views over Nevsky Prospect and the Philharmonic Hall. The Art Nouveau decoration of the lobby and the restaurants and lobby bar will not fail to impress.

The five fine dining restaurants offer everything from sushi to French cuisine, not forgetting the excellent selection of vodkas and caviars at the hotel's renowned Caviar Bar. Exquisite pastries are served during the day in the light and airy mezzanine cafe, a well known spot for those in the know to see and be seen.

The hotel also offers a well appointed spa, with gym, sauna, plunge pool and beauty salon. A range of treatments and massages are available.


A total of 301 rooms and suites opulently combine history and high style with 21st-century conveniences to ensure a memorable stay.

For a special stay why not choose one of the Historic Suites, named after famous visitors from Stravinsky to Pavarotti. Each is decorated with period furniture and offers a truly memorable experience.


Children of all ages are welcome to come and stay at Grand Hotel Europe. From the moment they arrive, children become a part of the hotel's exclusive 'Very Important Kids' program. They are given gifts and special facilities to borrow such as a PlayStation and DVDs, a master class in chocolate making and a special children's menu. There are some great places to take children in St Petersburg such as the Dophinarium, Leningrad Zoo and the aqua park.


With five gourmet restaurants, two elegant cafés and a relaxing bar, every taste is catered for at Grand Hotel Europe. L'Europe serves delicious French and Mediterranean inspired cuisine in restored surroundings. Head to the Caviar Bar and Restaurant for a taste of some of Russia's favorite dishes. Rossi has a more relaxed atmosphere and offers a delicious Italian style menu. Enjoy Cantonese and Szechwan influenced dishes at Chopsticks where monthly specials are prepared with ingredients brought directly from China. The Mezzanine Cafe, with its informal atmosphere, is an ideal place to meet for a light snack, afternoon tea or some tempting pastries.


Grand Hotel Europe is positioned in the heart of St. Petersburg, the cultural center of Russia and easily one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The hotel is therefore within waking distance of many famous attractions such as the Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan and the elegant arcades of Gostiny Dvor department store, the Alexander Pushkin monument, the Russian Museum, the Mikhailovsky Theatre and the Church of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood to name a few. The concierge service at the hotel will advise and help you to arrange tours and outings to help you make the most of your time.

Location & Directions

St Petersburg, Russia

Grand Hotel Europe is situated in the heart of St Petersburg within walking distance of the Winter Palace Square and Hermitage Museum. It is also conveniently located next to the Russian Museum, the Philharmonic Society and the Mikhailovsky Theatre.

When to go

The main tourist season is between June and August, when the weather is the warmest. Standout seasons to visit St Petersburg are late spring (May or June) and early autumn (September or October), when the city’s parks are filled with flowering trees or colorful leaves.

The deepest, darkest part of winter is undeniably cold but if you are prepared it can be an adventure. Furs and vodka keep people warm and snow-covered landscapes are picturesque. A solid snow pack covers the ground from November to March. The city gets fired up to ring in the New Year, when Muscovites emerge from their warm homes into the winter night for free concerts and fireworks.
