My cozy St. Petersburg studio overlooks the shining city lights every night. Located on the penthouse floor of a new building in the Kalinskiy District of St. Petersburg, it's only a 15 minute bus ride to the city center, and a fantastic place to see the city come alive at night with a glass of wine from the balcony. The space is comfortable but not overwhelming - the perfect way to enjoy Russia's crown jewel and cultural capital. A double bed and two fold outs mean there's room for everyone. This apartment is ideal for couples wanting to enjoy a romantic weekend away and solo travelers wanting a comfortable base to explore!
This is my main residence. I travel often and it seems a waste to keep it empty! I am open to offers all year round. After all, I'm always looking for an excuse to go somewhere new!
Most of the furniture can be easily rearranged to create dining spaces or additional sleeping spaces. Both the couch and orange chair fold out into beds. (Additional linens and pillows are in storage and will be provided on booking.)
I live with 1 cat, Dmitri. He is a Russian blue and therefore hypoallergenic. However, people with severe cat allergies probably shouldn't stay here. If your allergies are light to moderate, you will probably be fine.
Upon your request, Dmitri will stay at a pet hotel during your stay. This is best if you plan on bringing your own furry friend as Dmitri does not play well with other cats or dogs. However, if you are okay with taking care of him, he has no problems with humans and is a fun, fetch-playing cat!
The apartment is about a 15 minute walk (20 in the snow) from the metro station Lesnaya, just 3 stops outside the city center. In total it takes about 30 minutes to reach the center. There is also a trolleybus (31) which goes straight to the building and takes you right to the Petrogradskaya metro station.
There is a parking lot outside the building, but it is quite difficult to navigate. I would recommend this only for travelers who really need to drive.
For additional information on what to do and how to get there, please feel free to contact me! I can connect you with locals and give you all my tips. Hope to hear from you soon!
