The flat is in a great place in the city center. Kitchen and bathroom are small, but for me it was enought. The room was also ok. The fridge is horrible, completely full and there was a few mouldy food. Ekaterina is very strange person. In the first 5 minutes I have moved in, she asked me for borrowing her money. Second day I found out, that even though I locked my room I found out, she was in there when I was out of the flat without any specific reason. Other day I find out dildo in the box on my table, again in the locked room!!! She did not explain what the fuck was it doing in my room. So probably the spare key from the room is not only for cleaning or emergency. Apart from things like this, she seems to be nice person.

Ekaterina was one of if not the best host we ever had! She made us feel as if we were at home away from home. The room was perfect, the apartment had a great vibe and everything was just as described and more. The location of the apartment is nothing less than perfect! Within walking distance from all the main attractions in the city (3 minutes to Nevsky Prospect, 15 minutes to the Hermitage), plenty of convenient stores near 1 min away, restaurants, bars and everything you can think of; across the street even a boutique brewery! If you have plans to visit St. Petersburg, you should first check if Ekaterina has a free room for you!

Ekaterina was great; she arrived promptly to meet us and was very friendly and helpful. We have almost nothing negative to say about the apartment itself, only two small things: the wifi was not working when we were there, and the back bedroom was in a state of slight disarray. But overall, we had a very positive experience and considered this apartment perfect for a fun weekend exploring Petersburg. We were able to get around just about everywhere on foot - this apartment is incredibly close to Nevksy Prospekt, which was absolutely great given our limited time in the city.

Host: Always smiling. Cheerfull fun person. She has some food ( cake and deserts) in her kitchen that she offers to the guests :) Room: Middle size medium quality room. Bathroom is a bit small. But for a room at this location of city price was not bad. I suggest you to stay here.
