Stunningly beautiful and gigantic room in a vast aristocratic flat on the banks of St. Petersburg's historic and picturesque Fontanka river. A brief walk from all of St. Petersburg's cultural and tourist hotspots: the Hermitage, Mariinsky Theatre, Nevsky Prospekt. But utterly wonderful in itself, with 5 meter ceilings, amazing balcony, ceramic fireplaces. Modern furnishing with all hi-tech mod cons and in a cool café-lined neighbourhood. Wake up to the most startling views in St. Petersburg!

Der Wohnraum

Huge historic flat just minutes from the centre of the city. A unique opportunity to live right in the heart of St. Petersburg in one of its most beautiful buildings. Incredible view from the balcony, looking out over the shimmering Fontanka River and the unique blue, starred dome of Troitsky Cathedral. It's a joy to emerge right on to the banks of the river.

Bluetooth music mini-systems and phone chargers in each room. For instructions on how to use, please ask.

Zugang für Gäste

Access to the gigantic main room, flooded with light. Also to the mini-gym, with exercise bike and rowing machine. There is a store-room if you want to keep some belongings out of the way. And naturally, all the essentials: spacious bathroom and kitchen.

In general, you would be staying with me only, but the apartment is so huge - over 200 square metres - I really don't think there is any chance it will seem crowded. Occasionally, there may be a second guest, but if that's the case, I'll let you know when booking. Even then, there is more than enough space to go round.

My overall plan is to let just one room at a time and relatively occasionally - my main aim is to share this amazing place with visitors to one of the most astonishing cities in the world.

Also, please note that I have an electric water heater, so no chance of having to endure cold showers when the municipal water gets switched off for weeks every summer. Hot showers are available here every day of the year!

I can highly recommend John's place. The furniture is basic, but the room and the whole flat is very spacious and bright. John is very easy to live with and the atmosphere in the flat is relaxed and quiet. The location is very good to explore the city on foot. The kitchen and bathroom are clean.

Thanks for nice room and rest. Plane had arrived in 7-30 a.m. And as checked in the room settled in is 12-00 o'clock after. So i planed to stay in airport through 3 or 4 hours min. John offered to come in the room imerdiatly from plane arriving by him self. So many thanks for this point also. The room and appartment are so big. All are clean. And you have all you are needed. Kitchen is so spacious. Airly rooms and light. Comfortable bed and many place in the room make you are not clamped like in the hotel or other appartment. Don't agree with privious comment. So preaty place for a stay for long time. There are calm and quiet atmosphere in the roomhouse. Private shelfs in the fridge and bathroom are situated for you. Towels, linens, and yes there are several shower gels and shampoo in the bathroom for common use )). But if you have to have some additional place you can ask John or empty it by yourself. And generally speaking if you need something or have problems ask it to John and he resolves it. He is so communicative and tollerant person. Thanks for preaty room and staing. Next time will reserve this appartment.

The location of the apartment was good, public transport, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, everything was very close. So if you are just there for a couple of days it is a very good opportunity for your stay. John is also a very nice person and if you have any questions he will try to help you. Nevertheless I wouldn't recommend the apartment for a long term stay like I did (nearly 2 moths), because: 1. The room is very nice and big, but some essentials like a mirror or a proper closed are missing. 2. The shared places like kitchen and bathroom weren't clean enough, out of my sight. For example: after John used the kitchen it would take him hours or even days until he cleaned or cleaned away his used stuff, so either I had to cook with limited space or clean his stuff before I could use the kitchen. (e.g. leaving the used cutlery or empty packaging of food on the kitchen plate, after eating not whipping the kitchen desk/plate, leaving products like honey or milk open on the kitchen plate, not putting the dirty dishes in the sink but next to it-less space-and then cleaning it after hours, etc.). The bathroom and toilet where okay, but could have been cleaner, e.g. in the toilet there was some dirt falling down from the ventilation, the shelf where I could put my things (shampoo etc.) was full of dust and I always had to make space in shower before using it, because it was stuffed with over 10 different and nearly empty shower gels.

Antwort von John & Masha:
Just to note that in nearly a year of hosting at this wonderful apartment, this is the first even vaguely critical review. Unfortunately, Linda has unrealistic teutonic expectations and is not at all suited to AirBnB shared accommodation. Please rest assured that the apartment and rooms are maintained and cleaned regularly to a very high standard. Given that it involves sharing with other human beings, there are occasions when compromises must be made - but that is true of AirBnB establishments the world over. And the bathroom and kitchen are large, so there is plenty of room for cooking and storing. I hope that Linda can embrace the AirBnB and Russian experience in future. She should - as she mentioned many, many times - find a place on her own. We can also always do better, and will continue striving and improving and learning from criticism. In the meantime, I wish Linda only the best and advise that she worry less about shower gels, which incidentally are there for everyone to use, and show a little more understanding and empathy with her fellow man!

The location is perfect, especially for visiting Mariinsky. The apartment is typical old St Petersburg and will perfectly fit those who are interested in authentic local atmosphere. The host was very welcoming and accommodating. Thank you very much, John! Hope to stay at your place again.
