The room was very nice and clean. Bathroom also very clean. The host is very friendly and helpful. He gave us all the information we needed before and during our trip. Highly recommend.
The best thing about the place is its host Yuri, an amazing and very friendly guy. Always concerned about your well-being, offering advice on the places to go, even giving me some rides to the museums and calling a taxi to the airport for me. Not to forget a welcome present, bottle of water and a yummy Russian chocolate. For me it was very important that Yuri spoke good English, we could communicate about everything, he also makes registration for foreign visitors. LOCATION: It is a great location, all the most important sights are within walking distance, there is also a bus stop a few hundred meters away and a metro stop around 10 minutes walk away. The best thing are the sunsets if you are walking home in the evening. There are also many great restaurants in this area. Do try the Georgian restanurant Yuri recommends, I loved it. If you like sushi you must try Tokyo City restaurant, it serves also great Russian breakfast. Just a little warning, the hotel has no signs, so make sure you agree in advance when and where to meet the host on arrival. FACILITIES: There is a kitchen with tea, coffee, salt and sugar and all the equipment you might need to make meals although considering current restaurant prices for euro countries it is not worth it. There is also a hair dryer and washing machine in the bathroom - all free to use. CLEANLINESS: The appartment is brand new so everything is very clean, also all equipment is new. Shower is in the bathtub, so no issues with wet floor in the bathroom due to water spraying from shower. The building itself is a bit rundown but do not get scared by that, appartment has been completely renovated some months ago. COMFORT: The bed in the single room was very comfortable for a good sleep, I did not even need to extend it. There is a big mirror in the room, also a big window sill that you can use to organize your toiletries and a wardrobe with coat hangers.
All in all, the place was great, only minor negative points, I am listing, all meant to improve your experience and not to avoid this place :-) 1. The hotel has no signs, so make sure you agree in advance when and where to meet the host on arrival and how to get back. 2. You might have some issues if you are an early sleeper as sound insulation in the appartment is not particularly good and when you get other guests going around and closing doors you will hear it. In addition also the street can be a little bit loud (nothing majoy, just few drunk people shouting and garbage men collecting rubbish during the night) but if you close the window you will not hear it. 3. A bit of a drawback is that there is only one bathroom without toilet and a separate toilet. So if you like to spend a lot of time in the batroom, you might have some issues.
The owner was the most kind and helpful person I have ever met. The room was very clean as well as the toilet and the kitchen. The structure is not far away from the underground station (less than 10 minutes of slow walking) and you can find restaurants and mini markets all over in the nearby streets!
Great apartment located on Vasilyevsky Island. Super easy to get around, 2 minuets to the grocery store, 3 mins to the bus/tram. Fantastic restaurant area 12 minuets walk, and also to the fab bridges of St. Petersburg. The apartment is clean and tidy, kitchen equipped with everything you need, nice bathroom with a bath tub, which is great to use after a day in the rain. The host, Iiuri is extremely kind, help you with what ever you need help with, he is very generous and keeps you comfortable. I recommend this place for everyone going to St. Petersburg!!!
