2.1.1. SHEREMETEV PALACE hotel
The Residence Taleon Sheremetev Palace is an old aristocratic mansion built back in the eighteenth century.
Before the 1917 revolution it belonged to Count Alexander Sheremetev and his
family. Today the residence has recovered its former splendour and opened its
doors wide to guests.
The interiors of the palace were created in the late nineteenth century in accordance with the Sheremetev family’s preferences. The exquisite luxury and refined aristocratic quality of the building can still be felt today.
The Residence Taleon invites you to immerse yourself in the enchanting atmosphere of the Count’s nineteenth-century mansion. Almost as soon as you enter, you sense the special atmosphere that reigns in the Residence. The marble finishing, the coat of arms of the noble Sheremetev family and the magnificent stained glass are all reminders of the splendour of the past. As you climb the majestic marble staircase covered with a red carpet, you feel you have become the noble count, owner of the luxurious mansion. Everything in the palace has been preserved as in the Sheremetevs’ time – the suite of reception rooms, the grand White Hall and the old oak library, constructed on three levels as was the tradition.
The Residence Taleon has seven separate suites of differing categories, but all finished with equal luxury. Three of them are located in the historical rooms of the palace. All the suites are equipped with climate-control systems, personal safes, satellite and cable TV systems, Internet access and mini-bars. The bathrooms are faced with natural marble and decorated with mosaic panels. The furniture and accessories are the work of the finest European craftsmen, while the interiors are completed by copies of masterpieces by famous artists.
