The Four Seasons Lion palace St Petersburg is ideally placed for both the hermitage and St Isaac's Cathedral. It exudes luxury with its palatial decoration, superb restaurants and friendly staff. It is the perfect location in a fabulous city.

Beautiful hotel minutes right in the heart of St Petersburg. Walking distance from the Hermitage with views of St Isaacs and Admirality. Staff is very attentive and helpful and the rooms are exceptional. Rooms are a little pricey but then again this outs a Four Seasons and you definitely get what you pay for here.

I think that one cannot go wrong when booking at a Four Seasons Hotel anywhere in the world. In Petersburg it was no different. The building itself is charming, ans staff very attentive.Great restaurants and a bistro for breakfast that is spetacular setting.

Wonderful hotel. Service, location and amazing staff. On top of that, they have the best restaurants in town; Sintoho and Percorso. Forget getting out at night for dinner, there are no better restaurants than the ones at the Four Seasons Lion Palace!!!

Expectations are high when booking a Four Seasons property but the Lion Palace delivered everything it promised and more. We'd arranged a transfer from the airport and from that moment on, we felt extraordinarily well cared for. Every member of staff we encountered was utterly charming and did their best to ensure our comfort and satisfaction - nothing was too...

The Four Seasons in St. Petersburg is absolutely beautiful and makes one feel as if one were in a19th century palace. It is a fascinating building with a very interesting history and perfectly situated in the city.
