Enjoying a prestigious setting within a former palace and boasting a prime location on St. Isaac’s Square, Four Seasons Lion Palace places guests on the doorstep of some of St. Petersburg’s most famous attractions. A classic hotel of immense grandeur, the front entrance is guarded by two marble lions, leading into a striking lobby with white columns and imperial-yellow walls, barrel vault ceilings and a granite staircase, effortlessly reflecting the 1820s beauty of this 19th-century palace.

Offering a choice of 183 rooms and suites, all of these spaces have been fitted out to also reflect the original 19th-century stylings of this historic building. Features include the likes of custom-built wardrobes, hazel doors and marble-walled bathrooms, while some of the more splendid rooms boast heated floors, private terraces and even floral frescoes.

The dining experiences at the Four Seasons are extensive and rewarding, starting with Sintoho, a lively Asian eatery serving the likes of crab from Singapore, sushi from Tokyo and dim sum from Hong Kong. Percorso presents a wonderful journey through Italian cuisine within an ultra-stylish setting, while the Tea Lounge is a bright and airy space with a glass-roofed ceiling where guests can enjoy Russian cuisine with a glass of champagne. For a pre-dinner drink or evening cocktails, the library-style bar, Xander Bar, named after Tsar Alexander I and is a relaxing place to see out the day.

Rest and relaxation at the hotel are enhanced further by the offerings of its award-winning Luceo Spa. A haven of rejuvenation set over four levels and presenting a wide range of wellness treatments, the spa is the ideal antidote to busy days exploring this stunning city.
