This is an atmospheric apartment in the centre of St Petersburg, in the Dostoevskian thick of things.

Our neighbourhood is lively. Nevsky with its 24-hour action is 5 minutes' walk away; 3 metro stations are 3-5 minutes from us; the Dostoevsky Museum is just around the corner; and there's a whole street of some of the most varied bars, cafes, and restaurants in the city just the other side of Vladimir Cathedral. Yet, when you enter our courtyard, the pace changes: all the bustle of the street falls away - leaving classical columns (the Museum of the Arctic and Antarctic - actually, an old church), space in which to think, and the wonderful Petersburg light.

Our apartment/guesthouse is a former priest’s apartment, which we have restored and gently adapted to give a carefully balanced mix of private and public space. When we first saw the apartment, we were struck by its light, tranquillity, and sense of peace. We have done our best to preserve these qualities.

There are four double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, view, and distinctive character. In addition, we have allowed for a generous amount of public space. The dining-room is for quick cups of coffee, long unhurried breakfasts, leisurely pots of tea, the occasional business meeting, or just for sitting around in. You may also choose to sit, drink, and talk at our bar.

Our rates include unlimited tea and coffee, and a Wi-Fi connection.

Finally, we are not a hotel, so please don't expect everything to be perfect. But we do do our best to provide our guests with all support they may need, and are always ready with advice and suggestions. And if you’re interested in the architecture, literature, and culture (including the drinking culture) of this fascinating city, then I have a large website devoted to these subjects.

Rates for individual rooms vary depending on season and size of room (50 - 95 euros / night, including breakfast). The cost of the entire apartment (with or without breakfast) is 160-300 euros / night.. Discounts for architects, artists, academics, and anybody with a good case to make.

We spend a long weekend in John´s apartment with 8 people. The flat is really beautiful and located in a perfect place, John and people who helped him were really friendly and helpful and I couldn´t have hoped for anything more. Five star! Totally recommendable:)

The place is quite convenient for life, including restaurants and shops. It is near the train station, and several hundred meters away from Nevasky street. My friends and I spent a good time there. I would recommend this place if you are in group of 8. That would be a great value…

I'm English, but I've more or less got over it (lived in Russia for the best part of 20 years, now live in Berlin for most of the time). I'm a translator by trade; I'm also a builder, (amateur) architect, furniture-restorer, cook. For my unconventional take on St Petersburg, see …
