    "Beautiful apartment and wonderful time! Enjoyed it immensely. Loved the city - and the apartment was more than expected. Clean, large and very well priced. Quiet, fully equipped and conveniently located. Central enough - all sights within easy reach (10 minutes by the underground, 2 minutes to the underground station). The owner Tatiana Zenkevich is polite, responsive and has a tremendous personality. Thanks so much! The apartment was terrific and it felt so homey! I hope all your future visitors appreciate it as much as I did." 05 July 2012 - 05:00:00

    "Very nice and like-home apartment. Well and fully equipped with all kind of stuff. The landlady is very welcoming and sweet: welcomed us with pancakes and homemade pie :)) Although our stay lasted only for two nights is was a pleasure to stay there. If we ever go to St.P again, we would definitely stay at Tatiana''s apartment." 23 August 2012 - 05:00:00

    "De woning was bijzonder goed toegerust (vooral de keuken en badkamer), gezellig ingericht en uitstekend gelegen, vlak bij een metrostation. De grootte van de woning was royaler dan verwacht, met name de slaapkamer en de badkamer. Alles was brandschoon. Speciale vermelding verdient de ontvangst van de gastvrouw , haar inzet en behulpzaamheid. Boven iedere verwachting! We zullen zeker nog een keer terugkomen." 28 January 2013 - 06:00:00

    What to say? Tatiana is certainly the best person you could meet in Russia. I won't repeat what other people have already said. All is true and more! I will talk about the apartment. It is perfectly located. Supermarkets are close by (2 minutes walk). Metro is 5 minutes away and is fun and easy to take. The apartment is very very quiet. I slept like a baby . Wifi is perfect. You can cook, eat, sleep, surf as if you were at home. And you can go up early, take the metro and find yourself at the Hermitage in a flash or on the Nevsky or even at the Dostoievski museum. If you arrive from Moscow or going to Moscow after your visit to SPB, the railway station is close by. We paid 350 roubles for a taxi) We had lots of luggage. It was very easy. The best trip ever. Moscow and SPB will leave you full of memories. And you'll remember Tatiana's smile forever. En somme le meilleur appartement . La plus souriante et dvoue des femmes et un pays facile et fabuleux. N'hsitez pas une seconde! 22 July 2016 - 05:11:10

    My positive impressions of our apartment but most of all of Tatiana, our landlady started from the moment I read her advert. I was actually searching for a cozy apartment suitable for my husband and I. Tatiana's first reply to my booking enquiry immediately confirmed my thoughts. We would be so welcome. However, I did not know how to obtain the invitations, the first step for a visa application. Tatiana offered to help us out and in a week we both received our invitations. Another most assuring service was coming to meet us at the airport and not only, she was also a confident guide. I could see she how she loves and knows her beautiful St. Petersburg. Her apartment, our home for a week, was more than I expected.. Her kitchen was complete with a dishwasher and whatever you may need like a toaster , a coffee maker, microwave oven and more. Name it, you've got it! We had a comfortable sofa, great to land on after being out the whole day. There was a fireplace, although it still wasn't that cold but I'm sure it would have been so nice to turn it on in wintertime. The bathroom was very practical with both an enclosed shower and also a hydromassage tub with a shower too. The master bedroom was large and complete with a computer and WIFI access, a must for travelers today. I enjoyed waking up to see sunny mornings through a picture window overlooking Lanskoye shosse at a distance, a wide, busy street. Each morning it was a short walk to Chernaya Rechka metro station. Right next to this was a magnificent antique villa that will surely catch your attention. Then there was an open market where we found just about everything so typical of Russia from sweets to matrioskas to pretty ushanka winter fur hats or simply, thick, warm and colorful winter socks, one would like to take home as give away presents. Closeby is park with an obelisk with a bas relief of Pushkin. This is the spot where he was killed in a duel which was then an isolated area by the river. Places to see are each more beautiful than the other. A boat ride along the Neva River gives the tourist an overview of the city. In the evening a sight not to miss is the opening up of the illuminated bridges. People were undoubtedly so helpful and friendly whever we would go. Needless to say that in the neighborhood you will find supermarkets, pharmacies, and so many good places to enjoy an excellent Russian meal at a low price. Russian cusine is delicious.

    My husband lived in St. Petersburg about 12 years ago, so I was excited to go back with him. Before our trip, Tatiana was so helpful and very responsive to my never-ending emails. She helped us get our travel visas, offered to buy us ballet tickets for her discounted resident price, and had great suggestions on things to do in the city. I seriously cannot say enough about her and the apartment. If you are at all nervous, DON'T BE. Her hospitality was well beyond anything I've ever experienced in the United States. She came and picked us up from the airport (during rush hour traffic, mind you). She pointed out landmarks and tourist attractions on the drive to the apartment. She had a treats and traditional savory pies for us in the apartment when we got there. She had detailed maps and instructions on where to find grocery stores, good restaurants, the metro, how to get to harder to lesser known or access cathedrals and palaces, etc. She had fillable metro cards and grocery store discount cards for us to use during the week. She also mentioned that her home is about 10 minutes away from this apartment, so she was available whenever if we had questions or if anything happened. We didn't have to take advantage of that thankfully, but it was really reassuring to know that. Tatiana was BEYOND helpful, and the apartment was adorable. The photos on this site are exactly right and true to reality. It was very clean, tidy, and had everything we needed. Washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, iron and ironing board, plenty of hot water, clean bed linens, dishes, stove, microwave, wifi, TV, heating & air conditioning. Plus a great bed to crash on after really long days of sight-seeing. From the apartment, it was about a 5 minute walk to the metro station (Chernaya Rechka), and a 5 minute walk to the grocery store. It's not downtown, but we liked being away from the busyness. We could not have picked a better location. St. Petersburg itself was gorgeous. We were there a week with a packed schedule and saw all the major tourist sites. The Hermitage and Palace Square, the Peter and Paul Fortress, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Mariinsky ballet, Peterhof, the Catherine Palace, Smolny Cathedral, the Yusupov Palace, the Faberge museum & the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood. When we left, Tatiana called a taxi for us to get back to the airport. I genuinely want to be her friend forever. She was so so kind and such a great hostess. THANK YOU! 25 June 2015 - 16:17:38

    El apartamento, por medida, comodidades, dotacin y ubicacin es excelente para conocer la ciudad. En una zona tranquila, con toda clase de servicios a mano, al lado del Metro, a tan slo tres estaciones del centro de la ciudad, es perfecto para unas vacaciones. Permite conocer San Petersburgo y descansar en una zona tranquila. Tatiana es, adems, la anfitriona perfecta: proporciona una ayuda inestimable en asuntos prcticos, y es una persona agradable como pocas. Lo recomiendo al 100%! 30 June 2017 - 15:27:00

    We visited with two teenage kids. Four people felt very comfortable. Apartment could accommodate one more kid, no problem. Place is very close to the subway and 2-3 stops to the city center. Area feels secure, people on the street courteous and helpful. There are many good eating places nearby. Ask Tatiana for recommendations. We liked small pancake stand near subway for our breakfast. For cooking apartment has well equipped kitchen. Buy your vegetables from paddle near subway or on the street. Much better and cheaper than in supermarket nearby. Overall could not find better base to explore Saint Petersburg. 30 August 2015 - 11:30:57

    We very much enjoyed our stay in the Apartment. It was like borrowing a friend's house - we were invited to use the food in the cupboards, and the dishwasher and washing machine did most of the chores for us. The jacuzzi was fun to try out, but the shower was much more practical and very efficient. All necessary shops - supermarket, chemist, bank, post office - were within 10 mins, but I would recommend an English to Russian dictionary unless you speak Russian. Don't rely on your mobile to look up words - the signal in the flat was great, but neither phone could connect elsewhere. Tatania was extraordinarily helpful with everything from booking tickets to finding gluten free food for me, and really enabled us to make the most of our stay. 19 July 2017 - 20:51:00

    This apartment is conveniently located and very well maintained and equipped. Tatiyana, our host, went out of her way to make us enjoy our stay. She even cooked a cheesecake for us and picked my wife at the airport. I will definitely stay here again. 10 August 2015 - 12:28:51

    My husband and I visited Russia for the first time in May. Tatiana was excellent and helped us with our Visa required Invitation Letter for the entire trip, not just the time we spent at her Apartment. It was like having a friendly relative helping us organised ballet tickets, was waiting for us at the airport and took us to the Apartment, she pointed out various tourist spots on the way, provided Metro cards, baked us a cake and had food in the freezer, helped us set up WhatsApp to communicate, organised a taxi to take us on to our next accommodation, and lots of helpful information about places in the area. Our Apartment was a short walk from the Chernaya Rechka Metro (Blue Line) and near the McDonalds. On Wednesday there is a local market outside the metro. Markets had food, clothing and much more at cheap prices. With the Metro card we felt like a local navigating the metro with ease. Advantages of riding the Metros is they are attractively decorated with art. We got off and on at each station to view the different artistic designs and significant. Tatiana suggested the main ones of interest. It is only 3 stops away from Nevsky Prospekt where it is near The Church of the Resurrection (the church of the spilled blood) and other main tourist attractions. The Apartment was clean and roomy with a separate bedroom. Pictures on the website accurately depict the Apartment. We had 5 restful nights sleep at the apartment. We always felt safe in the area and it was nice to see outside the main tourist area. Nothing was too much trouble for Tatiana, she warm and inviting. She freely gave her telephone number and encouraged us to text/phone whenever we had a question. St Petersburg will hold special memories in our heart. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We would definitely recommend staying in this Apartment, especially with the invaluable assistance's Tatiana provides to her guests. 13 June 2016 - 02:09:45

    Tatyana did her utmost best for us. She's the ideal person to rent an apartment from.. She is well taking care of her guests; invitation for visa was settle. We are used to travel on our own but it was quite comfortable she picked us up at the train station, she advised us a lot when to visit what. The ballet at Marinsky was an unforgettable experience ! Her apartment is excellent, so nice to com 'home' there after a long city visit. I could go on and on, will add some more things Family Van Parys from Belgium 08 August 2015 - 08:43:47

    We are a mature couple who were travelling by trains and ferry from London to St. Petersburg so it was obviously vital that we had a home-from-home to relax in when we finally arrived. I booked this apartment because of the encouraging and superlative reviews and every single one was spot on in their lavish praise. This was particularly the case with the marvellous 'land lady' Tatiana who unfailingly answered our many queries before our arrival. As others have stated she tackled all the paperwork needed to successfully obtain a visa; no mean feat I can assure you and sent us links to book various venues such as Peterhoff and the Hermitage. She even suggested we might care to go to the ballet and a classical concert. We jumped at this opportunity and, not only were the tickets she booked us cheap, but our seats at the ballet were ones that only local knowledge could secure. By the time our train pulled into the station at a minute to midnight we felt that we were 'old friends'. There we were met by a smiling Tania who'd even bothered to ask our Coach number so that she could be right there on the platform. We also met her delightful daughter Elisaveta who owns the apartment and we were whisked away for a tour of the city. It was very useful in helping us locate the places of interest and we gasped at the opulence and grandeur. When we arrived at the apartment Tatiana had so kindly bought water,milk, bread, meat and cheese for us as well as baking a cheesecake and giving us a box of sweets. As if that wasn't enough she had loaded up cards for the metro with ten journeys apiece and showed us on a map where the metro was, supermarket etc. etc. By this time it was 2a.m. but she still answered our queries and showed us the facilities. I must say that there was everything we needed and more. Hot water in the shower, dishwasher, washing machine, clothes dryer, iron, hair dryer etc. It is by far the best equipped holiday rental I have ever stayed in and you can imagine that, because of travelling a long distance by train and therefore not wanting to lug around heavy suitcases the washing machine and dryer were a boon. The flat was in a block with trees around and we felt very secure there. We shopped easily at the local supermarket and ate at a tiny Georgian restaurant next door on one evening. The metro whisked us into the centre in 20mins and we walked our legs off all day in this incredible place. Thank you dear Tania. We await you in England!! 20 June 2017 - 17:06:00
