Great location
100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

This loft-style apartment is 200 metres from St Isaac's Cathedral and 600 metres from the Hermitage.

We're situated in an inner courtyard, where the noise of the city is only very faintly audible. And we're on the 6th floor, looking over the roof of the building opposite - so there's a panoramic view of sky, treetops, roofs, architectural details, and the tower of the Admiralty building (with which you can almost engage in tete-a-tete conversation).


Standard: Kitchen, Wifi, Iron, Laptop friendly workspace, Hair dryer, and 6 more
Other highlights: Elevator, Free street parking, Host greets you, Long term stays allowed

Although I didn't have a chance to meet John during my stay, he was a very communicative host. Always available by text or phone - and was able to help with recommendations for local restaurants and a bank to change money. The flat is spacious and well located near the Nevsky P…
