Well located apartment! Super responsive landlord!

  • 5 of 5

We found ourselves unexpectedly without lodging in St. Petersburg and emailed Edward, the landlord, late at night as we boarded the overnight train to St. Petersburg to let him know of our distress. He responded within about 4 minutes, and arranged for his local representative, Natalya, to meet us the following morning to let us in. Sure enough, Natalya was waiting for us when we arrived. She spoke English beautifully and showed us around the apartment.The apartment itself was clean, spacious, and well-located overlooking the Griboyedov Canal. Definitely try nearby Mickey & Monkeys for some tasty, interesting food in a fun environment.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in St Petersburg and staying at this location. We were able to walk most everywhere we wanted to go as a tourist within 10-15 minutes. Apartment was clean, spacious and equipped with all the basic necessities. Natale was very gracious and accommodating, meeting with us to check out at 2:15am for an early morning flight!

The only issues we had were with the alarm, which we were warned about. A power outage tripped the alarm two times when we were not there and we had to meet the police. Also one suggestion for improvement, a water filter container would be a nice enhancement. We were warned to not drink the tap water, so we bought bottled. But a filter container for the refrigerator would be a nice addition.

We would gladly stay there again.

The Best Experience

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location … Our family of 3 has just returned from the most memorable trip to St. Petersburg. The wonderful experience started with the decision to rent an apartment downtown St. Petersburg. All the major sites are within walking distance. The owner quickly replied with the confirmation. The subsequent communication with the owner was also prompt and clear. When we arrived, Natalia, the caretaker, waited for us in the apartment. Natalia made all the efforts to attend to the specific needs of our family. It was good to get Natalia's phone number in case we needed help or information. On the day of our departure, Natalia came to the apartment and arranged a taxi to the airport for us. The apartment is well equipped with everything necessary to make even an extended stay comfortable. There is a variety of cafes and restaurants in the area. Our only regret: the trip was too short. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone, who is planning a trip to St. Petersburg.

Great location. Awesome apartment. Wonderful host...

  • 4 of 5

The best part was the location. Second best was the manger, Nastasha who spoke excellent English, met us outside of the apartment.(Door did not have the street number.) . She clued us in to everything nearby, showed us a map and was extremely helpful. We were able to walk to all the major attractions, plus there was a grocery store nearby to fill all our major needs including Russian vodka. The apartment was just as advertised.

We learned the hard way, not to leave windows open with the security alarm activated. We were greeted our first night out, when we came back from dinner, by 4 cops,(yes Uzis in hand.) They were at the apartment because the alarm was triggered. After 30 minutes, (seemed like hours),Natasha came to our rescue and solved the dilemma.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to see St Petersburg. Three of us stayed comfortably, but the apartment was large enough to accommodate more.

Thanks Natasha.

Great Location in the Historic City Center

  • 4 of 5

Big, beautiful apartment just a few blocks from Nevsky Prospekt and many historic sites. Nice neighborhood with many conveniences nearby. Clean, quiet, nice bathroom, functional kitchen, huge living room with windows overlooking the canal. We were very happy with the place and would have rated it 5 stars except for one situation. We had the windows open and a wind gust pushed the curtains into a floor lamp causing it to fall over, breaking the shade. This had nothing to do with us, strictly an "act of god". I did the right thing and pointed it out to the owner's representative at the end of our stay. She contacted the owner and we were informed that we would have $100 deducted from our damage deposit. I really feel that was an unfair and short-sighted response. Regardless, I highly recommend this property.

Disappointing experience--broken into and robbed on Monday, May 30, 2016

  • 1 of 5

This apartment was entered using an existing key while we were gone, all our things rummaged through--and all our money (approx. $1000 cash) and my new iPad, iPhone, jewelry, and other items were stolen. Police were called and we spent 4 hours at the apartment with them and another 5 hours at the police station. Edward's agent, Natalya was extremely helpful and had the locks changed that evening. Edward has no insurance to cover this situation, and declined to reimburse for anything. Two days later, it appeared a similar situation was being set up and police were again called.

The apartment is spacious and we were quite pleased with the accommodations, but very unhappy with the break in and losing around $2,500 worth of money and items.

Owner's Response: The break in incident did take place and I feel really sorry for what happened. The apartment located in a very safe area but things like that may happen anywhere even in the gated community. Nevertheless I consider this incident more like a force majeur. This incident happened first time in the course of 10 years that I've been renting the apartment. I would also want to say that guests are partially responsible for what happened because they violated the security policy of door locking. My representative tells all guests to always lock the door with two locks!!! At the time of the incident the door was locked with only a top lock, which is weak and very easy to open. It is the lower lock, which is a tough one and hard to open. Anyway to make my guests to feel more comfortable and secure, right after the incident I've installed additional safety measures, the central security system connected to the central monitoring post 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The security ward will be within 5-7 min in case of any unauthorized door opening. Next guests stayed in the apartment for three weeks after the incident and everything went well, no problems. And I hope there will not be more.
