More about us:

SO/ Sofitel St. Petersburg

On February 14th 2018, the Russian debut of the SO/ Sofitel brand took place in St. Petersburg – the SO/ Sofitel St. Petersburg Hotel opened its doors to guests. The SO/ Sofitel is located in the very heart of St. Petersburg, just a few steps away from St. Isaac's Cathedral and the State Hermitage Museum.

At the hotel – which has been designed by the renowned Italian designer Antonio Citterio – guests can expect captivating views of St. Petersburg's landmark sites, the Just Say SO unique guest concept, the unwinding philosophy of relaxation in the SoSPA, as well as the high-society SO Parties held in the MIXO Lobby Bar, and also on the panoramic-view HI-SO summer terrace.

Antonio Citterio drew on the famous Fabergé Eggs as his source of inspiration. These enigmatic jewellery masterpieces come to life in the hotel's interiors, in a modern interpretation. The unique Ortenzia Very Very Gold lighting designs are crafted from 24-carat gold, while there is a frozen acrylic installation by virtuoso artist Jacopo Foggini – exquisite details which lend the appearance of a veritable casket of jewels.

The SO/ Sofitel St. Petersburg offers 137 guest-rooms and suites – ranging from snug SO Cozy room, through to stylish balconied SO Lofty suites, and even the superlative SO VIP apartments –  equipped with their own fireplace, two-seat bath with a view across to St. Isaac's Cathedral, and a bar with separate staff entrance.

The restaurants and bars of the hotel can meet the most demanding gourmet's tastes. The Cococo offers a fresh take on classic Russian cuisine. The restaurant's cuisine-concept is based on using seasonal produce sourced from local farmers. The restaurant offers dishes with a synthesis of traditional recipes and traditional flavours, revealed and achieved with unique textures, shapes, and combinations. The design of Cococo restaurant, just like its cuisine, is modern yet doubtless Russian – bright, extraordinary, understandable and ironic.

The MIXO Bar is a real oasis of social life and the center of St. Petersburg's most fashionable events. Take an armchair seat by the fireside, socialise, or enjoy the very special atmosphere to the accompaniment of a wide variety of specially-created drinks.

When spring arrives the renew HI-SO panorama terrace will be opened, with its entrancing views over the city. As the venue for parties to the sounds of world-famous DJs, it is also a place to enjoy spectacular gourmet food, prepared by renowned chefs.

For centuries the Yusupovs had been tsars’ trustworthy and favorite associates.

The staterooms in neoclassical style are remarkable for their rich and elegant decoration. The unique West European works of art as well as musical instruments of the 19th century adorn the palace interior. The germ of the palace is the unique Domestic Theatre built in the Rococo style as a miniature of the world-known Marinsky Theatre. Yusupovs' palace on Moika is notoriously famous for Rasputin's murder that took place in one of the cell rooms on 16-17 December 1916.

PETRUSHA RUSSIAN RESTAURANT

At the intersection of Konnogvardeysky Boulevard, 4 and Konnogvardeysky Lane, the restaurant of Russian cuisine Petrousha     (Petrusha) was opened. The former barracks of the Life Guards of the Equestrian Regiment have thus finally turned into, perhaps, the most famous restaurant address of the Northern Capital. Petrousha restaurant has 3 halls for 160 seats: a living room     (40 seats), a craft hall     (64 seats) and a fireplace hall     (56 seats), children's room is present. Antique furniture, antique interior items, engravings of Petersburg, drawings of the majestic buildings of the young capital, portraits of outstanding people of Peter's time, soft music, elegant lamps, smoke ceramics and Dulev tea set — the interior and the atmosphere of the restaurant seem to transfer guests during the youth of the great Emperor, the era of Peter Ensembles and the Grand Embassy     «Petrousha» – so, according to legend, they affectionately called Peter I abroad during the time of the Great Embassy – Russia’s diplomatic mission to Western Europe in the late 17th century. Her mother, Natalia Kirillovna Naryshkina, whom Peter loved all his life, also called it in his childhood. This tender childish name gave the innovator-king the strength to withstand the burdens of state affairs, to which he aspired from infancy. That is why Petrushi’s child’s image was chosen as the emblem of Petrushi, but on horseback    (albeit small and wooden for the time being) and with a saber    (albeit toy): all the glory of government and the weight of power are still ahead of him. The restaurant also hosts master classes on modeling pelmeni for tourist groups. The event includes sculpting ravioli and vareniki, tasting homemade infusions and products.
