Condo/Apartment
This light-filed 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). The apartment has been designed as a free-flowing space with no doors (except on the toilet), allowing light to travel unhindered from side to side and end to end. There's a bedroom area (double bed), kitchen area, sitting area (sofa bed), and separate bathroom and toilet. The poster above the sofa is El Lissitsky's 'Bash the whites...This light-filed loft-style apartment is 200 metres from St Isaac's Cathedral and 600 metres from the Hermitage.

Our district offers a good choice of cafes and restaurants (I send our guests a detailed information sheet containing tips on where to to do what in the city), as well as very quick access to many of the city's most important sights (the Hermitage, St Isaac's, Nevsky prospekt, the river and bridges, the Kunstkamera, the Menshikov Palace). Literally just round the corner is the Alexander Garden, which fringes the Admiralty building and, apart from being one of the only green spaces in the city centre, makes an ideal way to get to the Hermitage or the river.More

Just back from a memorable 6 days in St.Petersburg where we stayed in this extremely comfortable flat. We were met by John, himself, who had kindly purchased not only milk, coffee, sugar, bread and other essentials, but also some white chrysanthemums to match the black...More
