This is a set of three interconnecting rooms in my apartment / guesthouse The Academy Garden.

The first room is the apartment’s original drawing room, a handsome space which retains the original quietly ornate ceiling mouldings. Off to the right of it is a small additional space with bookshelves, a useful antique desk, and a sofa – a quiet corner for relaxation or cozy conversations. Off to the left of the main room, through the original double doors, is a small bedroom with a double bed, interesting parquet floor, and a door leading out onto the balcony – the ideal spot in which to take coffee in the morning sun. The six arched windows in this set of rooms look out onto the garden of the Academy of Arts, a scene of never ceasing variety - a dense wall of greenery in the summer and in the winter an expanse of open white space inscribed with an intricate tracery of branches and the Classical lines of the Academy buildings.

The 'balcony rooms' have the (more or less exclusive) use of a small bathroom (shower, no tub) just across the hallway.

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.

What an enchanting place! John's apartment was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to St. Petersburg. John is a delightful host that assisted us pretty much with everything, from helping us with our visa to arranging a transport to the airport, to giving us a lot of precious tips and insights on the city. He's a really interesting guy and we really enjoyed having conversations with him over a cup of coffee in the morning. The house is very beautiful and tastefully decorated and you will fall in love with every single forniture, wishing you didn't have to leave! The location is safe, quiet and convenient being very close to the subway, trams and buses. There is also an interesting market literally next door to the house and a great restaurant that John pointed out. We hope to be back in St Petersburg soon and we will surely stay here again. Thanks for being such a wonderful host John. It was a pleasure to meet you!

It rarely happens that we find ourselves in the circumstances where there's nothing we might complain about. Still it happened to us in Saint Petersburg at John's apartment. This is the most beautiful apartment you can imagine. As a matter of fact, one should never try to imagine anything more beautiful. Forget about it! A waste of time! It's a marvellous combination of an old grand Russian apartment avec character and refined, delicate renovation. It gives on beautiful park, it' s silent, it's dreamlike. And, oh, how very confortable. And, above all, you feel as at home! It is John's apartment. John is an extraordinary host. One you can dream about. He introduced us to the mystery of unique beauty of Saint Petersburg. We spent some very agreeable moments of conversation together, enjoying breakfast and calm morning hours. We hope we shall be back in summer. This was a winter tale. Thank you, John. Vesna and Mladen

From the time we booked the apartment, John was extremely helpful and responsive in giving us all the information we needed about visiting the area. We received a lot of help from him during our visa process despite our group's logistical challenges! John's daughter received us at the apartment and was a wonderful host. She made sure that the entire group was comfortable for the night and for the entire week that we were there. The apartment was absolutely beautiful--we would definitely go back!

It was a pleasure dealing with John prior to our stay. He resides in Berlin, but Tonya was there to help guests, clean rooms etc. The apartment is very beautiful & in a good location. Suggest getting good directions from John prior to arrival - we had no trouble finding academy park, but once there it took us a long time to find the apartment - finally some locals took pity on us & helped out! Another thing is the room doesn't have an ensuite, so you need to walk through the hallway (common area) to get to the bathroom. And make sure the hot water is on as it wasn't our first night. The room could also be cleaner. All things considered we enjoyed our stay

The flat was really really nice, great location. Clean, quite, great breakfast and Tonya was ready to answer any questions we had about the city!

Visiting Petersburg was an overall interesting and worthwhile event. Staying “at” John made it all even better – no way that I ever would stay anywhere else when I come back – not only due to the central location, near enough to one of the widely spread metro stations. Also John and his wonderful place are a good reason to come back to see Petersburg. After miles of walking the city, hours of collecting uncountable impressions it was only very recovering to get “home” to this quiet, comfortable and well-designed place, where nothing lacked. It also was highly inspiring to chat with John (or one of his “good souls”) who provided us a fabulous breakfast as well as deeper insights in the Petersburgian soul. (Yes, John, I got it: They´re not at all Russians!) All recommendations he made to end up for a decent supper were perfect “typical” spots without being too touristy or leaving us hungry reading the kyrillic menue… After all: Maybe I shouldn’t be so positive – to make sure there will be space for the time we come back?

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
