Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace is an opulent historic hotel on St Isaac’s square, in close proximity to St Petersburg’s landmarks like the State Hermitage, Mariinsky Theatre, Kazan Cathedral and Mikhailovsky Castle. It’s situated inside an actual 19th-century royal palace and true to its name, the front entrance is guarded by Renaissance marble lions. The hotel has been restored to its original 1820s Imperial style with marble, walnut paneling, bronze gilt, ornate mouldings and old leaf ceiling work. Rooms and suites reflect the original 19th century styling with luxurious furnishings. Large French casement windows allow you to gaze at the city’s icons. After a day of exploration, visit the Luceo spa to enjoy a relaxing dip in a glass-roofed pool, or try spa treatments like the amber body massage and black caviar facial. In the evening, visit the Xanders bar, a library style bar where you can sip imaginative cocktails near a double-sided fireplace. The Tea Lounge is a glass-roofed lounge serving modern Russian cuisine and a fantastic caviar degustation set. For authentic Asian cuisine head to Sintoho restaurant, while Percorso serves classic Italian cuisine.
