We spent eight glorious nights at this stately yet warm hotel where we were treated like royalty. The staff are unbelievably cordial, helpful, and make a guest feel like part of the family. The concierges were all incredibly helpful-we we’re assisted by at least three of them

Hard to put into words just how amazing our stay was at the Four Seasons Lion Palace. First, you're literally staying in a former Palace when you stay here. When you first arrive and walk past the two lion statues guarding the entrance, it feels like stepping back in time and

are there any good restaurants/cafes near the hotel?
Dear svnoor, My name is Felix Murillo, I am the General Manager of the Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace in St. Petersburg. Our Hotel is very well located just less than two minutes walk to Palace Square (Hermitage) and facing St Isaac Cathedral. All main City Restaurants are in the vicinity. But let me subjective here if I may. The Restaurants we do have in the Hotel definitely worth the visit: The Tea Lounge is where you will find the Russian Specialties , it is located right in the middle of the Hotel in the covered courtyard, from where you may appreciate it was the carriage patio of the Palace. Here we also serve breakfast and Russian afternoon tea. Percorso is our italian Restaurant, beautifully appointed very well regarded by locals ie holds the highest score in trip advisor and was awarded best Restaurant in the Russian Federation in 2016. Sintoho, our Asian Restaurant stands number 53 and growing. It is a petite treasure in the City. I would live to tell you more if you are interested, let me know, my director email address is felix (dot) murillo (at) fourseasons (dot). Best, Felix
