apartment location to stay

Hi All,

I'll rent an apartment in St Pete for 4 nights but not too sure which location i should choose.

i have 3 options : Gorokhovaya St, Spasskiy pereulok or Ruzovskaya Ulitsa.

Thanks for your help.

I would say none of the mentioned streets are centrally located.

If you have no other chance, I would have preferred Spasskiy Pereulok which is closer to Nevsky Street (main street of the city) and has metro station very close.

Gorokhovaya is comperatively bigger and longer street. If your apartment will be close to Admiralteyskiy Prospekt (Neva river), then it will be a good decision.

Then it should be somewhere around Moyka embankment. Good location. I would go for it.

There are hundreds of apartments available for short term rentals, is there a reason why only 3 options which are not so close to attractions?

One family chose an apartment at 20 Griboyedov canal emb, just across the street from the House of books (Singer house), Kazan cathedral and a stone's throw from the Hermitage, 50 m from Nevsky prospect. It is not a property of mine - hence, no advertising...

There are a lot of apartments in the very center of the city available which would be better in the winter.

I have known a woman Irina who manages number if apartments who I first used in the mid-90s. She is lower cost than any of the others I've seen and in fact I leased my nice modern current apartment 2 years ago from her and it was quite a bargain.

Her web site is http://www.introbyirina.com/apartments.html. Her visa invitations are pretty expensive however, considering you can get them for $20 or 5 people traveling together for $50 elsewhere.
