Step back into the atmosphere of Imperial Russia with a stay at the exquisite Four Seasons – a hotel whose elegance, and opulence matches the city outside its doors. A grand 19th-century palace, just steps away from the State Hermitage, the luxury interiors encourage guests to channel their inner aristocrat, with butter-soft carpets, marble floors and sumptuous fabrics throughout.

This is a place to relax and indulge, with an afternoon of pampering at the luxurious Luceo Spa, or caviar and champagne in the classic, wood-pannelled lounge. Staff are renowned for their knowledge of the city and attention to detail – nothing is too much trouble. An ideal choice for a celebratory weekend, or a truly indulgent break.
