The Kempinski Hotel Moika 22 is a luxury hotel situated next to the Moika River, within walking distance of Palace Square, the Hermitage, and a metro station. Its 200 guest rooms and suites have a regal look paired with modern amenities like flat-screen TVs and minibars, and some offer pretty street views. Executive Suites add extra perks like Nespresso coffeemakers and free Champagne. The large breakfast buffet (for a fee) is suitably high-end and includes caviar and Champagne, and the ninth-floor Bellevue Brasserie displays panoramic city views. Other notable features include a tea room serving Russian-style tea, a spa, whirlpool bath, fitness center, and free Wi-Fi. As an alternative, The State Hermitage Museum Official Hotel has a similar ambiance, but its removed from tourist attractions.
Heritage building with a romantic Old-World atmosphere
Built in 1853, Kempinski Hotel Moika 22 is housed in an imposing neoclassical building in the heart of St Peterburg's historic center. The hotel's expansive lobby is elegant and opulent, from the soaring atrium ceiling topped with chandeliers down to the multi-toned marble floor. Wingback armchairs covered in beige velour or burgundy damask fabric add to the grandeur, as do the paintings by Old Masters adorning the walls. But while the property is certainly posh, certain details like the hallways' navy carpeting feel a touch dowdy. This luxury hotel caters to well-heeled business and leisure travelers who don't mind splurging for an ornate setting. The romantic and Old World atmosphere also makes it popular with couples on city getaways.

Spacious and lavishly decorated rooms and suites, some with beautiful views
The Kempinski Hotel Moika 22 offers four different room categories, and five types of suites; the smallest are the single-occupancy Business Rooms, with 215 square feet of floor space. In keeping with the hotel's opulent atmosphere, rooms are decorated in rich textiles and saturated colors. Floors are covered in navy-blue carpeting and furniture is finished in dark mahogany tones. Photographic prints with naval themes adorn the walls. Suites are considerably more spacious and decorated in a more ostentatious style, with patterned wallpaper, chandeliers, and heavy drapes. Louis XV-style furniture, gilded mirrors, and oil paintings provide the finishing touches. It's regal, but some may find this brand of Old World elegance a bit fussy. Standard amenities include air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and minibars. Most rooms lack coffee- and tea-making facilities. Bathrooms have elegant black-and-white tiling and come fitted with shower/tub combos, heated floors, and magnifying mirrors. Bathrobes, hairdryers, and luxe toiletries are provided.
Suites have separate living rooms as well as a few luxurious extras including spacious white-marble bathrooms with separate bathtubs and rainfall showers, while Executive Suites add Nespresso machines and welcome platters with free Champagne, chocolate, and fruit. Some rooms have scenic views over the river, or of historic landmarks like the Winter Palace, and Church of the Spilled Blood.
Generous breakfast buffet, two restaurants, tea room, bar, spa, and fitness center
The Kempinski Hotel Moika 22 does not disappoint when it comes to on-site features. Breakfast (charged extra) is served each morning in the Beau Rivage Restaurant and the Griboyedov Dining Hall on the first floor of the hotel to the sounds of live piano music. The extensive buffet includes breads, pastries, cheese, cold cuts, caviar, and fresh fruit. Guests also have the option of ordering hot dishes served a la carte, which includes both international favorites and local specialties such as syrniki (Russian curd fritters), or pancakes with caviar and sour cream. Located on the ninth floor, the Bellevue Brasserie offers diners panoramic views over the city and a lunch and dinner menu of French cuisine. The intimate Wine Cellar 1853, with exposed brick walls, has seating for up to 16 and offers French food and an extensive wine list. The charming Tea Room has an open log fireplace and views of Palace Square and the State Hermitage Museum. Afternoon Tea is served here Russian style, using a silver samovar and Imperial Russian porcelain. Open throughout the day, the Von Witte bar resembles a formal country club, with leather armchairs, a library, and an open log fireplace, with views over the river.
The hotel's on-site spa offers different types of massages and a variety of relaxation and beauty treatments. The spa area also has a Fitness Bar serving fresh juices, seasonal vegetables, or fruit. The fitness center is open throughout the day, but has only a few cardio machines and free weights available.
There are four on-site meeting and event rooms which can accommodate up to 200 guests plus a small business center with two Macs and a printer. The hotel also has a small shop selling Russian souvenirs. On-site parking costs extra and is limited to 32 vehicles. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
