The space

This is the smallest room in our Academy Garden apartment / guesthouse. The room is indeed small (11 sq. m.), but has its own private corridor (4 sq. m.) and small bathroom (4 sq.m., with a shower, no bath). The window overlooks the courtyard at the back of the house - a space where children play all kinds of ingenious games while cats stretch lazily in the sun.

Location: our 230 square metre apartment is directly opposite the garden of the Academy of Arts. The Hermitage, St Isaac's, and the Mariinsky Theatre are all 15-20 minutes' walk away; the Menshikov Palace is only 5. Nearest metro station: 6 minutes. Turn right out of our front door, walk 150 metres, and you find yourself on the bank of the main river, with all of the centre of St Petersburg spread before you. Opposite and a little to the left are St Isaac’s and the statue of the Bronze Horseman. Beside you are the twin sphinxes crouching solemnly on the embankment in front of the Academy of Arts. This is an ideal spot from which to watch the raising of the bridges on summer nights.

Kitchen / dining room: the apartment has a fully equipped kitchen adjoining a large dining room.

Rates: The nightly rate for these rooms varies depending on time of year and number of occupants, and includes breakfast, unlimited tea and coffee, and some help (where required) with getting to know St Petersburg. Discounts are available for artists, academics, and anyone with a good case to make.

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, architect, furniture-restorer, cook. For my unconventional take on St Petersburg, see
