Rossi Boutique Hotel & SPA, Sankt-Peterburg
In the nineteenth century Russia began an architectural initiative to align St Petersburg with the grand buildings found in European cities. K.I.Rossi, a French architect, pioneered this committee to change the architectural face of the city. Rossi helped construct Fontanka River, sadavaya Street, Tchernyshov Lane and Nevsky Prospekt. The Rossi Boutique Hotel is named after this influential figure, and is located in a tenement building right in the heart of Russian classical architecture, an area Rossi was played a large role in designing. The Rossi Hotel combines classic grandeur with contemporary touches, and this fusion of the two creates an elegant and highly considered aesthetic. The hotel’s restaurant is reputable for its Japanese cuisine, and guests can enjoy its Eastern flavours whilst relaxing outdoors on the summer terrace.
