We actually stayed in "Flat" Friends, which is an affiliate in Griboedova Canal. It's an apartment with private bathroom in a very central area. Nevsky Prospect is in a 3 min walk.
It's in an extremely quiet place (but it will also depend on your neighbour, as there are 2 apartments) with TV in a comfortable room. There is a very nice shared kitchen. Bathroom is also very nice (box shower!).
Bad points were: no cleaning (we stayed for 4 days!), no services (heater went down once and there was no one to fix it -- thank god we were able to restart it!), mattress is very, very soft.
