Renovated in 2014, this iconic property blends French and Sino-Russian architecture with local style and is within walking distance of the city’s main attractions.

Marble en suites feature separate showers and freestanding bathtubs along with silk kimonos and bathrobes, while the split-level Imperial Suite offers palatial living overlooking the gardens and fountains.

This is an amazing hotel with a welcoming and luxurious atmosphere and all modern amenities. The small indoor swimming pool and gym are a nice touch, and the Whisky bar on the top floor is beautiful in the evenings and definitely worth a visit. We also like the small onsite museum which preserves and displays the history of the hotel.
