Categories / City Services/Housing and Communal Services

ANGLETERRE HOTEL (24 Malaya Morskaya Street - 10 Voznesensky Avenue). Opened in 1876 by Theresa Schmidt, an entrepreneur. Originally the hotel was called Schmidt-England, then England; in 1911-19, it became the Angleterre, in 1919-25, the International, and then again the Angleterre. From 1948 until the early 1970s, it was renamed the Leningrandskaya Hotel, and in the early 1970s, became Block B of the Astoria Hotel. Notable people who stayed at the hotel include A. Bely, J. Reed and many others. In December, 1925, S.A. Esenin took his own life at the Angleterre (memorial plaque installed on the facade). In September 1941, Evacuation Hospital No. 926 was located in the building (in November 1941, it had 600 beds); in January - August 1942, the hotel held a therapeutic hospice for people diagnosed with exhaustion. In 1942-45, the hotel was closed down, and reopened in 1945-48. In 1928, there were 91 rooms at the Angleterre, and 152 by 1960. The building of the Angleterre Hotel was built in the early 19th century by an unknown architect; in 1845-46 it was reconstructed into the S. Poggenpohl Tenement House (by architect A. Ruben), with the addition of the 4th floor from the side of the yard; in 1876, the building was remade into a hotel. In 1985, the Angleterre was closed for reconstruction; in March 1987, the building was taken apart and reconstructed, and only the original facade was retained (supervising architect A.I. Pribulsky, interiors decorated by I.G. Uralov). In January 1991, the Angleterre was reopened; after another reconstruction in 1999, the hotel had 473 rooms. The building houses the Borsalino Restaurant.
