Near St. Isaac's Cathedral, the former residence of Princess Lobanova-Rostovskaya – a gift from her generous husband – designed by the French architect Auguste de Montferrand and completed in 1819, has become a gorgeous hotel a few years ago.
This 'House with Lions', as it was long called because of the two marble lions that watch over its yellow facade, was renovated by luxury hotel group Four Seasons. The 183 rooms and 26 suites are furnished in a classical style, and each square inch offers something special for lovers of lavish comfort. Velvet drapes, silk, wood floors, chandeliers, marble, everything is sumptuous. A majestic staircase leads from the lobby to the bedrooms. The two stylish restaurants, one Asian, the other Italian, will make you swoon. To complete your cocooning, hit the Luceo Spa, which has eight treatment rooms, a gym, and a swimming pool. The Lion Palace St. Petersburg is most definitely a luxury jewel for discerning travellers from around the world.
