It is with great pleasure that we introduce the Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace as our top pick for staying in Saint Petersburg. A splendid palace guarded by two marble lions at the front gate, the former residence of the prince Alexander Lobanov-Rostovskii welcomes its visitors as one of the best five-star properties with royal-class accommodation.
The palace was designed in the 1820s by the Russo-French architect August Montferrand as a revenue house for the prince. In spite of its numerous reconstructions, the establishment still retains elements of architectural classicism both inside and outside. You can actually feel the atmosphere of 19th century Russia, as you descend the marble stairway and proceed into the hall with the high ceiling and original golden ornaments. Today the hotel offers 157 rooms and 26 suites. One of them is overlooking the St. Isaac Cathedral – one of landmarks of the city – and offers a private terrace which gives you a chance to enjoy the view and the atmosphere of the city center having a breakfast or a glass of wine at the dawn. When you’re done with tours around the palaces and return to your suite it feels like you’re still at the palace, and you really are.
Whether you want to get pampered in the local spa, enjoy a meal at one of the hotel’s four restaurants or get a soothing cup of tea in our library-shaped bar – the multilingual staff will provide Royal-quality service and ensure the comfort and security of your stay. Get all the benefits of booking a suit here!
