My first time in SPb and I found this ideal apartment for my 2 week stay in the city. It is located in an older building in a friendly and safe neighbourhood with proximity to metro, parks and museums. (Do not be sidetracked by the rear entrance into the building.) The exquisite apartment was bright, modern, tastefully decorated with the latest of furnishings and appliances to make my stay relaxing and pleasant. In addition, Irina, the owner, was most accommodating and knowledgeable in assisting with my travel plans. Irina is also an excellent travel guide. I took advantage of her services with an arranged date and reasonable fee on two separate occasions to visit recommended areas inside and outside SPb in her comfortable Audi. An apartment with all amenities considered and a charming personable owner made my stay in SPb an exceptional and memorable experience. Thank you, Irina.
