“Little Gem in the Centre of St Petersburg”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We visited St Petersburg in September 2016 and rented this little apartment from John Nicolson for our two week stay. It is a beautiful modern apartment right in the old historic centre of St Petersburg - near the Nevsky Prospect, the Admiralty and the Hermitage. One could not ask for a better and more convenient location. Above all it is quite and tranquil, well equipped and John is a superb host - full of knowledge and very helpful. Thank you for a very pleasant stay!

“Thoroughly enjoyable”
Reviewed 14 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just back from a memorable 6 days in St.Petersburg where we stayed in this extremely comfortable flat. We were met by John, himself, who had kindly purchased not only milk, coffee, sugar, bread and other essentials, but also some white chrysanthemums to match the black and white decoration of the flat. He has a wealth of information on St.Petersburg, restaurants, shops etc. to share with his guests and is most attentive to their needs.

The flat, which has been fully and recently renovated, offers everything you could need, a very comfortable bed, equipped kitchen, efficient shower. It is particularly light and airy with many windows giving you a view over the roofs and towards the Admiralty spire, which is beautifully illuminated at night.

We would fully recommend this flat.
