Stunning One Bedroom Apartment Just 300 Meters From Hermitage Museum

Stunning One Bedroom Apartment Just 300 Meters From Hermitage Museum

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Feb 5, 2015
1 Bed / 1 Bath Sleeps 4 With New Renovation And Furniture.

Welcome St. Petersburg Visitors!

I present a newly renovated cozy one bedroom apartment in the middle of the historical center in the elite area known as the Golden Triangle. Located approximately 300 meters from Palace Square (Hermitage Museum) and just steps from some of the most picturesque cathedrals you see in your guidebooks, it is perfectly located for more than just siteseeing. The Konyushnnaya Square entertainment district with trendy restuarants, clubs, bars, etc. is just a few minutes walk while the most elite shopping street in the city is one block over. Malaya Konyushnnay has the perfect balance of being in the middle of everything, but on a quiet pedestrian only street.

The apartment can sleep a maximum of 4 guests using the bedroom with large bed for 2 and the living room with a couch that opens to a bed for 2. If you use the living room as a sleeping area, the room has a sliding door that makes it private and the bathroom and kitchen are off the hallway so nobody has to interrupt anybody elses sleep.

The apartment was completely newly renovated in 2013, and all furnishings are brand new. I take great pride in the cleanliness of the apartment, and as a fellow traveller, I've stocked the apartment with everything I can imagine you would need. If I forgot something, please let me know. I live just 10 minutes away. I'm not an agency with office hours - you can call me 24 hours.

The building is a protected historical landmark and has a beautiful redone courtyard and secure gates. In a rarity in central St. Petersburg, the entrance to the building has also been recently renovated and is great condition. The apartment is located on the 1st floor.

High Speed Wi-Fi is included!

The apartment also has air conditioning, washing machine, iron & board, hair dryer, dishwasher, full sized refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, large flat screen TV with cable, plenty of closet space and much more. Parking is available free of charge.

An additional benefit, I am a licensed tour guide in St. Petersburg, and anxious to help you with any questions you have. I can assist with letters of invitations for your visas, guided tours, theater tickets, train tickets, restaurant and nightlife recommendations, and much more.

About the Owner

My name is Ira! I attended university in St. Petersburg and stayed. I've been lucky to travel many places around the world but I love coming home to my favorite city. I started a tour business that is small but growing, and I run my family's real estate business (just a few apartments we rent out to visitors). My hobbies are going to the gym, playing with my Golden Retriever, travelling to new places, and thinking of ways to improve my business.

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5
When we first considered our housing options in Saint Petersburg for the holidays, we were not completely sure that our personal preference for apartments would be wise. We don't speak Russian, and weren't sure about safety, etc. We made some inquiries, and waited to hear back, but still weren't completely sure we wouldn't end up in a hotel where we might feel a bit more secure. The correspondence we had with Ira was such a confidence boost. She walked us through everything we needed to do for our visas, transportation options, tour suggestions, and didn't seem to mind any of our endless questions. We feel guilty as we probably took advantage of her time. But we can repay her by writing a glowing review of her apartment in hopes that others will follow in our footsteps.

Regarding the apartment we rented, it was simply marvelous. It was modest in size, but had everything we could hope for. There was a nice modern feel, and you can tell she really cares for the apartment, as nothing was broken and I don't even remember seeing any scratches. It's actually a little unusual for rental apartments, which typically are treated a little roughly. We cooked a few meals in the kitchen and found everything we might need. The knives could use some sharpening, and I had a little problem understanding the microwave which had Russian on the dials. But beyond this, it was perfect, especially the dishwasher.

The living room had comfortable couch and nice chair, a big screen TV, and some nice decor. But as i write this, I realize i didn't spend much time there. The bed was comfortable, and seemed to have a new matress. There was good lighting, plenty of closet space, a full sized mirror and I really felt it was professionally cleaned - something I appreciate dearly.

The best feature, and the reason we ended up choosing this apartment was the fantastic location. The apartment sits on a really quiet street without cars. It's such a charming street, overflowing with cafes and restaurants, and a view at the end of a magnificent curved church with columns (who's name escapes me now). There was beautiful canal with famous spilled blood church and the palace that has the Russian Museum just a few steps away. We walked to the main palace with the famous art museum - Hermitage in less than 10 minutes.

I'd write more but there seems to be a limit. Needless to say, we really enjoyed the apartment and recommend it fully.

Excellent apartment in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for five nights in June 2014. It was so well located, within walking distance from many of the main attractions and lots of cafes, shops and transport.
It was compact, clean and felt very safe. For an apartment in the middle of the busy Nevsky Prospect it was so quiet which made sleeping in the white nights easy. The lounge converted to a second bedroom so we both has lots of space to settle in. Having a kitchen and a washing machine was fantastic too.
The booking process was very easy and Irini was a great help with understanding the Russian visa process and providing a visa invitation for our entire trip, not just this part. Transfers from the train and to the airport were excellent services that made our stay even easier.
Fantastic place to stay for your visit to St. Petersburg.
