Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg

The Lowdown

The Four Seasons Lion Palace sits right behind St Isaac’s Square, with major landmarks such as the State Hermitage, Mariinsky Theatre, Kazan Cathedral and Mikhailovsky Castle right on the doorstep. Plentiful bars, shops, sights and cafés are all also within quick and easy walking distance.

The Rooms

The 183 rooms and suites have been fitted out to reflect their original 19th-century stylings – think custom-built ivory-hued wardrobes, warm hazel doors with gilt features, and high ceilings. Décor is a mix of blues and yellows in the rooms and turquoise-gold with brown shades for the suites.

The marble-walled bathrooms come with tubs and separate walk-in rainforest showers plus amenities by Roja Dove, while in-room amenities include 42-inch plasma screen television with MP3 stations and DVD players, safes and minibars. The Terrace Rooms on the fifth floor have private terraces with heated floors, and the immense Lobanov Presidential Suite, located directly above the main entrance is furnished with a kitchenette, a soak bath carved out of a marble monolith and floral fresco on the walls.

Food & Drink

he Breakfast at the Four Seasons Lion Palace is truly outstanding. Not only in terms of the variety (Caviar at the buffet, hello!), but also in terms of the excellent service and quality. The waiters are very attentive, while not being intrusive, and well-versed in English. Of course, it helps that it is all happening below this spectacular glass dome. Ages ago this must have been an open courtyard. The trees and high seats are providing that extra bit of intimacy.
Other than the breakfast room, there are two restaurants and a bar. All of them are really worth a visit. The Italian restaurant (called Precorso) will impress you with its spectacular chandeliers. The bar of the Four Seasons Lion Palace in St. Petersburg is quite the show as well. It really has the feeling of an old library transformed into a smoking room – straight out of an old English countryside palace. It was just sooo very coz

Services and Facilities

The Four Seasons Lion Palace really has a huge spa, seemingly built into another old courtyard. The pool offers you various underwater massage functions, while there is a sauna and various treatment rooms. After walking through the Hermitage the whole day this really helped a lot to soak away the various aches.
