Hello Anastasia and Roxana! We thank you for the organisation of our holidays in Saint Petersburg. All was perfect (preparing, welcoming, appartment (Fontanka Studio) and drivers .). We will give your adress to our friends. Best regards,

December 2010 - January, 2011
Apres un premier court sejour au printemps 1999, nous souhaitions voir Saint-Petersbourg sous la neige. Nous avons sejourne (4 couples) une petite semaine entre noel et jour de l'an dans l'appartement situe au bord du canal Griboedova. L'appartement est parfaitement situe en plein centre, bien chauffe, avec une vue agreable sur le canal, tout pres de stations importantes de metro, proche d'un super-marche tres bien achalande et ouvert 24/24 h, pres de tous les sites interessants de St-Petersbourg, et dieu sait qu'ils sont nombreux. L'appartement est confortable et pratique. L'accueil est bien organise avec le transfert de l'aeroport, peu couteux lorsqu'on est nombreux. La realite correspond bien a la description du site internet. Le reglement en euros par virement sur le compte espagnol de Roxana ne pose aucun probleme.
L'organisation de Roxana est impeccable. Elle est tres reactive et a repondu rapidement a toutes les questions que j'ai pu lui poser pendant les six mois de preparation de notre court sejour (nous avions reserve en juillet). Franchement, St-Petersbourg en fin d'annee, c'est magique avec la Neva gelee et tous les sites sous la neige ! Pour nous, savoyards, la temperature etait supportable (autour de -10 a -15°C). Il faut etre bien equipe naturellement.
Nous recommandons egalement le spectacle folklorique "Feel Russian" donne au Nikolaevski Palace, de bonne facture et sans pretention avec un excellent groupe de chanteurs russes, le tout dans un tres beau palais, pour un prix tres abordable (reservations possibles sur internet avec recuperation des billets sur place avant la representation). Loin des pieges a touristes habituels.
Merci a Roxana, a qui nous devons un sejour marque par toutes les beautes que nous avons (re)decouvertes.

I have stayed in several apartments in St Petersburg over the last few years, but I found Roxana's to be the best value for money. I found the quality of the accommodation to be very high, as was the service provided. The location was also very convenient (we stayed at Fontanka 69). I was so pleased that I have already contacted Roxana to book the apartment again on my next visit.

We had a great stay in the Fontanka apartments which are very central and convenient to the sights of St. Petersburg. Our apartment (Fontanka 11 A) was very clean and was equipped for self-catering if we had so desired. Booking and arrival and check-out were all very efficient and flexible (we had a late flight back). I shall certainly recommend the apartment to all my friends.
Andrew Brierley (Great Britain)
Dear Roxana, we had a wonderful trip to St. Petersburg. The
apartment was lovely and so was the appartment's location. The transfer was very
convenient and, most of all, we were very lucky with the weather. I'd recommend Fontanka
to everyone who plans a trip to St. Petersburg.
Martin (Hamburg, Germany)
Hello Roxana! I just want to thank you for the accomodation. The apartment (Canal Griboedov) was very clean and nice. Best wishes,
Tiina Junttila and the other guests (Finland)
Hello, I'd like to thank you, a little bit late, about apartment Griboedov during one week in August. It was very nice, very well located and pleasant and organisation was fine. We have very happy memories of our stay in St. Petersburg. And also your manager Anastasia is very kind and efficient. So, thank you very much for all. I'll recommend your apartments. Best regards,
Sylvie Arbouet (Argenteuil, France)
Hi Roxana, we came back from St. Petersburg last
night and just wanted to drop you a line.
Heidi Klose (Germany)
Good morning Roxana, Rolf from Hamburg - you may remember me... Really time to say THANK YOU!!! We had a really nice time in St. Piter. Everything as described - even better!!! Very well organized - west-european style - no longer soviet style. With the exception of registering... We will certainly come back - if time permits... looking for 2011 in September. All the best to you Anastasia and the taxidriver (Vladimir)? EVERYTHING was excellent. Greetings from Hamburg,
Rolf Niefind (Germany)
I just wanted to write and thank you. We had a super three days in St Petersburg. Your apartment (Griboedov canal) was absolutely perfect - very comfortable, clean and such a fantastic location from which to see all the sights. One day we hired bikes and cycled to all the islands which was a lot of fun - if a little hairy going down Nevsky Prospect!
I would definitely like to rent it again next summer and come with my husband and three children. I am telling everyone how wonderful it was - so just checking you are happy for me to pass your details on to those interested.

Salome Meli (Zurich, Switzerland)
Roxana! Thank you very much for this beautiful apartment (Canal Griboedov) and your support before. The size was perfect and the location very good for getting around. We (6 people) had a great stay in St. Petersburg.
Vielen Dank Roxana! Wir haben dieses wunderschone Appartement genossen, vorallem die Kinder. Das Appartement kann man problemlos zu acht benutzen. Toll ist, dass es sehr zentral liegt und die U-Bahn um die Ecke ist.
Rita Landwehr (Berlin, Germany)
Just to let you know my trip to Petersburg went really well, I just want to say that the apartment and service from your manager Anastasia was perfect!!! I really liked the fact the apartment (Fontanka river 11 A) was located close to the city centre and Nevsky Prospect with all the main sites only minutes walk away!!! The apartment was clean and to a good standard. Anastasia's support was faultless she helped me get the internet connection, provided cable dvd to TV (I don't know why it was missing?) and arranged the taxi back to airport on my depature... I will certainly use your services again if I return to Petersburg in the near future!!!
Once again thanks. All the best.
Nick Roy (London, UK)
Chere Roxana, J'ai bien tarde, mais je voulais vous dire que notre sejour a Saint Petersbourg a ete tres agreable et que l'appartement nous convenait tout a fait. La ville est magnifique et nous avons beaucoup marche! Seul, l'un d'entre nous s'est fait voler son portefeuille avec ses cartes de credit, mais vous n'y pouvez rien! Bien cordialement.
Joseph Musseau, (Versailles, FRANCE)
Jenn Poole (Expat in Moscow, from Canada)
Hi Roxana! Thank you very much. And also I would like to thank you for your support to me. I had a great stay here in St. Pete. And if Ill come back to St. Pete I will contact you again (maybe this year or the next). Is it ok for you? And Ill recommend your apartments for some of my colleagues if you like? So, wish you the best for your future and your business. Again, thanks a lot. Bye,
Denis Schmitt, HAUNI Maschinenbau AG (Germany)
Roxana, I wanted to write you to tell you that the flat you provided in St. Petersburg (Griboedov canal, 46) has been fantastic. The size was perfect and the location very good for getting around. I travel to Russia 3-4 times a year and I also have associates who come here and I will definately use you again and recommend you to others. Thank you again for all your help.

Very best of wishes,
Just one quick mail to thank you and your staff for a clean and nice apartment (Liteiny prospect) in St Petersburg. We enjoyed the weekend and the town and hopefully we will get the chance to come back some day.
Buon giorno Roxana,
Marisa Miragliotta, Piraino (Me), Italy
I just wanted to say thank-you for all your help with the apartment in St.Petersburg. It was a great apartment in a great location (Griboedov canal)! We had a wonderful time while we were there, and also in Moscow. Anastasia and Anton were wonderful. They were very nice and good people. Please let them know that they were wonderful and very helpful. Thank-you again for all your help. We had a great time and a wonderful apartment. My parents and sister also wanted me to thank-you.
Liz Attar (Tampa, Florida, USA)
Tapani Makinen and Jaana Palojarvi (Helsinki, Finland)
I used your services when seeking a short term rental in St. Petersburg, Russia, and you found me an excellent apartment (Griboedov canal) at a fair price. More important, you were especially helpful to me as I worked my way through the process of procuring a Russian visa. That process can be confusing for someone who has never sought a visa before. You were also very prompt and thorough in answering any number of inquiries that I posed to you in preparing for my trip to St. Petersburg and Moscow. Thank you for helping to make my trip go as smoothly as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who plans to undertake a similar trip. Thank you again for all your help.
Robert Varnum, Fort Myers, Florida (USA)
Have just returned from an excellent week in 46 Griboedova, Apartment was all that the web site said & more. It made our stay very comfortable & we were so lucky to be in the centre of the city & within walking distance of so many of the attractions. Please pass on our special thanks to Anton. He was an absolute diamond, not only did he call me Sir Roberts! but his help, knowledge & guidance were second to none. Without his help our holiday would not have been as full and as interesting as it was. His knowledge of the city was amazing, the Folk Theatre was for me a cultural highlight along with the heritage of course. Again a BIG thank you to Anton, if you would forward this mail to him so that he is aware of our appreciation I would be most grateful.
Gareth Roberts, Jill, Dave, Rose, Alec & Sally (Newport, Shropshire, England)
Dear Roxana, I hope all was well with the flat when we left it. We very much enjoyed our stay at Griboedov canal apartment, even though we had to leave earlier than planned. The flat had everything we needed, was comfortable and convenient, and we are very grateful to Anton for two late night trips to the Moscow station! St Petersburg is a wonderful place to visit and I am sure that I, at least, will return and look forward to doing business with you again. With best wishes to you and Anton,
Nora Macleod (London, United Kingdom)
Dear Roxana, thank you very much for your splendid service. We had a very nice and comfortable week at Fontanka 69. You have it all very well organized. Anton is a very pleasant manager and we really felt well looked after in St. Petersburg. The flat is very clean and well kept and comfortable with a great view from the windows, where we could sit in de window-sills. In the shop across the street we were welcomed after one day as regular customers, very nice. Also the visa-service of Ost-West went smoothly. Don't forget to give us a ring when you visit Amsterdam later this year.
Best wishes from Arda, Francien, Wim Bossema (Amsterdam, Holland)
His testimonial in Netherland language:
Anton is een heel prettige manager en hulp. Het was erg luxe dat hij ons kwam halen van het vliegveld en ons ook weer terugbracht. De visumhulp verliep ook op rolletjes. De registratie via Ost-West Kontakt service was in een dag klaar. In Nederland hadden we gebruik gemaakt van V&V visumdienst http://www.visumdienst.nl zodat de rompslomp tot een minimum beperkt bleef. (Al met al kost een visum dan wel een lieve duit, maar het bezoek aan St.-Petersburg is het zeker waard).
We zijn de eerste avond gaan eten in het
restaurant dat Anton en jij ons aanraadden: Yolki-Palki op de Nevski Prospekt (richting
station), en later in de week op een restaurantje in een kelder op de hoek van Gorokhavaya
Ulitsa en Sadovaya Ulitsa. Beide restaurants bevielen erg goed. De ligging van het
apparement is echt geweldig - we hebben alles te voet gedaan! En we hebben ook heel veel
gehad aan je uitgebreide website en de informatie en tips in het appartement. Nogmaals
hartelijk dank voor alles beste wensen,
Hi Roxana, this is just a quick note to say
thank you for all your help, in assissting us with our visit to St Petersburg. Everything
went according to plan throughout from getting picked up at the airport to getting into
the apartment. We highly rate your service and help and wouldn't hesitate to recommend
your services and organisation. The apartment Fontanka river 69 was fantastic as was
the city. Once again Roxana, thank you.
Hello Roxana, I just wanted to write to say
thank you very much for the stay in your apartment. We have just arrived back home
after the rest of our trip. We were all very pleased with the apartment (Liteiny prospect)
and would hope to return again some day. Anyway, thank you very much!
Many thanks Roxanita! We were most pleased to your apartment (Liteiny prospect) in St Peterburg last weekend. The apartment was very warm and peaceful. I can recommend Your apartments to my friends and maybe I will contact You sometime again. With best wishes,
Ms Raija Aura, Finland
Roxana, since the coming back, we've spent a speedy week, but today I've time to sent our grateful thanks for this Liteiny apartment's renting. We have appreciate your helpful reactive answers at each questions before this trip. All was OK during the stay. We had enjoyed to meet Olga, Anna and the taxi driver. Be sure that we'll give your address to everybody interesting to go to SPB. You can so give our phone number to the future French tourists if it is useful for them. We intend to continue to learn Russian culture. Perhaps, we'll go again to Russia. S'Novim Godom!
Pierre LARTAUD, Eurre, France
I have used Roxana-Apartments for my last two trips to St. Petersburg, in 2005 and I intend to use them for every trip, when I go to visit friends.
The apartment (Fontanka 11 B) was in great condition, close by to Nevsky, and easy to get to. It was warm when I was there in the winter, and cool when I was there in the summer.
Roxana and her managers were very accomodating to my schedule, meeting me at the apartment, arranging for a mobile phone, even taking me to the Train Station. I've needed to work with a flexible arrival and departure schedule, and they have been great.
The apartment was clean, well furnished, and it was nice to be able to get comfortable in an apartment, without the confines of a hotel. Having a fridge and stove was a real plus (my russian friends loved my cooking)
Would recommend Roxana and her apartments to anyone looking for a good apartment for a short or long stay.
Dave R. Toronto, Canada
Hello, I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our trip to St. Petersburg - thank you! My niece and her daughter (3 years old) had never been before and they were very impressed with it all. The flat (Griboedov canal) worked really well for us. I hope to come back again before too long as there is so much to see! Best wishes,
Kathleen Oldham, Finland
I came first to St. Petersburg in 2003, and was deeply moved by the people, the music, the food, the entire culture. I felt that this was a fluke and would not happen to me again if I returned. My friends and I decided to return this year, and we found the most wonderful experience, AGAIN! A large part of the positive experience I had was your apartment at Griboedov canal. You have done a wonderful job renovating it. I hope to return soon, and would very much like to stay there again. I have many friends at my work, who are now interested in coming with me, because I have told them what a wonderful place St. Petersburg is during the summer.
Next, I must tell you my impression of Andrew. Andrew is a very special man, I could tell that from the begining. You already know this, but now I know it too. I think we were somewhat trouble for him, as we had a very early morning departure last Saturday, and he had to take us to the airport. Also, my friend locked himself out of the apartment late one night when the other two of us were dead asleep. My friend called Andrew at 4 AM, for help, and Andrew provided that needed help to get my friend back into the flat. In a country where service is not the first priority of the workers, Andrew provides service that foreigners expect, and need. I cannot give Andrew a higher endorsement than this. He is a wonderful man, and you already know it! Please take care of Andrew, he is SPECIAL!
I am so on love with Saint-Petersburg, and with your
Griboedov Kanal flat, I am willing to do a testimonial for your web site.
Bolshoya Spaceebah & Warmest Regards,
Kevin Mills, Fountain Valley, CA, USA
P.S. I am willing to advise any Americans, or any other English speaking nation, on how to behave, and where to go when in Saint-Petersburg. I have experience with all aspects, ranging from night club/bars/discos to churches and museums. Roxana can arrange for my e-mail to you if you are serious about going to visit.
This is just to tell you that Deborah and I had
a wonderful time in St Petersburg. The location, Fontanka 11, was absolutely ideal and we
visited many of the famous palaces, cathedrals and, of course, the Hermitage where we
spent two days! I had learned to read the Cyrillic alphabet and to speak a little Russian
in advance, so we only needed a guide once - to visit the Catherine Palace in Pushkin -
but Ost-West organised this for us with great efficiency. Thank you so much for all your
help with the formalities and with making our holiday a truly memorable experience. Best
Dear Roxana, we just got back from our trip to St Petersburg and Sochi. Thank you very much for the excellent service. Everything worked out very well for us. The transfers were on time with a very nice driver Boris. The manager Andrey was very intelligent and nice person. The appartment (Fontanka river, 11A) was clean and comfortable, and its location was just excellent. The registration was well taken care of. We have the best memories of St Petersburg. The city is astonishing!
Helen Reutovski, San Rafael, USA
Dear Roxana, herwith I like to thank you for your work for us. You did it well, the appartment (Liteiny prospect) was well located, and was nice. Our visit to St Peterburg was an excellent expirience, it was beautiful and the town is very impressive. With good memories,
Wil Verheggen, Tilburg, the Netherlands
Hello Roxana! Nous avons beaucoup apprecie notre sejour, tout etait parfait. l'appartement Griboedov canal est superbe, grand, fonctionnel, calme et tres bien situe. C'etait un vrai plaisir. De plus, votre competance, l'organisation sur place ainsi que la gentillesse d'Anna et Andrei nous laisse un exellent souvenir. Pour 4 ou 5 personnes, voir plus, je recommande vivement cet appartement. Merci pour tout et meilleures salutations.
Christophe, Geneve, Switzerland.
Dear Roxana, already back to Austria, I would like to thank you. Everything was perfect and the appartment (Canal Griboedov) was really great. Whenever I or my family (friends, ...) are in St. Petersburg again, we will contact you. Best regards,
Clemens E. Madlener, Innsbruck, Austria
Dear Roxana, Thanks for all. Thanks for having given us the second apartment. It was very easier for the children sleeping. The apartments were very comfortable with all we need. Anna was very kind ans the transfer very professional. The city of St-Petersburg was very beautiful and we hope perhaps one time go in June. Thanks.
Jean-Hubert, Virginie and our children Ludovic et Simeon, Belgium
Back from Saint Petersburg I would like to thank
you and your organization. We had a great time there, appartment (Liteiny prospect) is
really good and pleasant to live in. All advertised informations are realistic. No bad
surprise after arriving there. Airport transfers were perfect. We also had a very good
time in Saint Petersburg. Feel free to give my contact email to any French speaking people
who would like to ask an experienced customer! Thanks again, Sincerely,
Hi Roxana, just to say thanks very much for your help with our trip to St Petersburg: we had a great time and the appartment (Fontanka 69) was exactly what we wanted.
Robert Mark, United Kingdom
Ilona Miller, USA
Dear Roxana, This is just a quick email to say a
huge thanks for letting us stay at your appartment (Fontanka 11); we've had a lovely,
relaxed and comfortable time. We will be sure to tell our friends and contacts about your
company. We will add your website to our website for everyone to see. May I also take this
opportunity to praise the work of Andre and Anna; they have been kind and extremely
helpful and their presence has made us feel very comfortable here. I also appreciate your
understanding and patience with regards to our car.
Adriano Truscott, UK.
Hi Roxana, I just wanted to write to say thanks for all your assistance and advice about St Petersburg and the flat (Liteiny prospect). We are back and everything went very smoothly. The flat was as you described, the woman who greeted us (can't recall her name) was friendly and helpful and it was a good tip to catch the van to and from the airport. As it turned out we didn't need to register our visas because we weren't there for three working days. We walked a lot and quickly got the hang of the trams and buses. There was so much to do. Despite having no Russian and there being little English the people on the streets and buses were helpful and we discovered a really nice Uzbeck restaurant just around the corner from the flat. Thanks again.
Tony Brown, Sydney, Australia
Roxana, we just returned a few days ago from our trip to St. Petersburg. My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Fontanka 11 appartment! Everything was just how we imagined and exactly how you described it. The appartment was very clean, well supplied, and has the best location to many sights in the city. Airport transfers were on time and hassle free (tell Andrey and Anton thank you) and the Visa support and registration services you provided were complete and easy.
We will be back to visit your beautiful city again, and would not hesitate to stay at one of your properties. Very Kind Regards,
Sherry and Jeff, Oregon, USA
We have returned to our lives in the UK and I
wanted to email you to say how pleased we were with the Fontanka 69 studio appartment and
the overall service received. I was travelling to St Petersburg on my own and Alexandra
met me at the airport. I found her very helpful and informative, having contact with her
during our stay. Airport transfer was also kindly arranged for us on return.
Anna Caudwell, Lancaster, England
I just wanted to thank you so much for the opportunity to stay in your appartment on the Fontanka river embankment (69A). The appartment was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. Moreover, the location was perfect with only a 5 minute walk to the nearest metro station and 10 minutes to Nevsky Prospekt. Everything was provided, including an ironing board with iron, television, spacious refrigerator, towels, fresh linens, and many other generous amenities. Id like to send a special thank you to Alexandra for both picking us up and dropping us off at Pulkovo Airport. She was not only prompt but extremely helpful with her various advices on what to do and see in the city. I was a pleasure spending time with her. Whenever my wife and I will be in St. Petersburg again, we will be sure to stay in one of your appartments. For the price offered, your appartments are second to none.
Thank you for making our vacation in St. Petersburg so special. We will never forget it! Best regards,
John and Natalya, Lititz, Pennsylvania, USA
Thank you a lot for staying at the great apartment at Fontanka. Location is brilliant with an amazing view on Fontanka river and very close to Nevsky prospect and Gostiny Dvor, apartment is well furnished, clean and cozy. We have really very nice time in Saint Petersburg and we are planning to come back and stay again at your perfect place.
Olga Struyanskaya, Moscow, Russia
Hello Roxana, we returned only very recently from our travels and wanted to thank you for your wonderful services. We loved the Dostoevsky appartment and now think of it as our little "home" in St. Petersburg. Andrei and Anna were very courteous and helpful. We will hopefully return to St. Petersburg again and will of course stay at no other place than the Dostoevsky studio.
Houring Attarian, Montreal, Canada
Roxana, just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay in St Petersburg and that the appartment (Liteiny prospect) was excellent. Alexandra was also very helpful and accomodating. Kind regards,
Joseph Lampo, Moscow, Russia
Hello Roxanna, I just returned from Europe and I wanted to let you know my stay in your flat at Fontanka 11 was wonderful! The flat was clean and everything was in good working order! I also liked the location, very close to Nevsky! I'd also like to pass along to you my thoughts on Andrey (a manager). He is a wonderful man.......very kind, gracious and helpful. It was my pleasure to have met him. And I look forward to further contact with him on my next visit to St. Petersburg.
The driver provided, Dennis, was also wonderful. He was waiting for me at the airport as arranged and was courtious, kind, and very very helpful. I recommend him highly for any further needs that you might have for him in St Petersburg!
Roxanna, I hope to return to St Petersburg in June and I'd enjoy very much doing business with you, Andrey and Dennis again. If the need ever arises you have my highest of recommendations!!
Thanks so very much again Roxana!
Gregory Lockett, Seattle Wa., USA
Just a quick note to thank you for all your help
in arranging the apartment at Liteiny prospect 32 for me. Of all the arrangements I needed
to make for my unexpected visit back to St.Petersburg booking the apartment was the
easiest part. Having lived in the city for eight years and visited last year and used a
different company to book accommodation am fully aware of some companies promising
everything but not being able to deliver. The apartment was wonderful, Alexandra was most
helpful, prompt and efficient.
I recently spent
a week on holiday in St Petersburg, having arranged my entire trip on the web. When I
first started looking for accommodation I did not know what to expect, though there were
photographs of the apartment on the web. Having booked to stay in Apartment at Fontanka
69, I duly arrived in St Petersburg on 8th January, to be met at the airport by the
apartment manager. When we arrived at the apartment block, I was somewhat dismayed at my
first impression, as the entrance staircase and corridor are in need of some attention,
though simple decoration would make a big difference. However, once inside the
apartment, any doubts I may have had quickly disappeared. The apartment was well, if
simply, fitted out, offering ample space for up to 4 persons though I was
travelling alone. The bedroom was very pleasant, with an excellent view of the Fontanka,
and the living room/dining room/kitchen was very spacious and had all that was needed for
my stay. This room was designed to sleep 2 persons if required. The bathroom was
excellent and there was a plentiful supply of very hot water. Considering that the
temperature was down as low as 20C during my stay, I must add that I was never cold
in the apartment. Outside, there was a very convenient small supermarket, which stayed
open very late though not 24 hours as it advertised! My final comment must be that

Hi Roxana! I am back to my normal life, following a great trip to Saint Petersburg. Thank you, I had great accommodation (Liteiny prospect appartment)! Your manager is so very helpful and knowledgeable, you are fortunate to be so very well represented, she is a great asset!
Simon Mills, London, England
Note: Later Mr. Mills also stayed in Fontanka 11 appartment.
I just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed staying in the apartment (Liteiny prospect) last week. It was perfect. Alexandra was also very helpful and pleasant to deal with. I would be interested to hear about your new apartments for my future visits. Thanks again,Charles Gamble, Den Haag, Netherlands
Roxana, My husband and I and our three children (Jenny Francis and Paul Tilley) stayed in your appartment at 32 Liteiny prospect. We wanted to let you know that we have very fond memories of our time in St Petersburg and we very much enjoyed staying in the appartment. I am sorry that we did not write earlier to thank you. (At the time we were living in France and we are now back living in Australia in the capital city, Canberra). Thank you for your efficient service and thank you also to your assistant. We wish you luck in your future business!
Jenny Francis, Canberra, Australia
Dear Roxana, I meant to write you as soon as I
got back, but got busy at work. Thanks so much for the appartment. The location
(Fontanka 69) was excellent, and the apartment was very comfortable - a perfect place to
wake up in in the morning, and to come home to at the end of the day. We loved looking out
the window at the canal and street activity. And Alexandra was helpful and patient
with all our questions.
Dear Roxana, we just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at the Fontanka studio. It's central location really added to our visit to St. Petersburg, as we were in walking distance from all the main attractions. We think you should precise in your web site how close the apartment is to everything. Aside from this, it was very comfortable and well equipped. Alexandra was very helpful with the apartment and with very good advice during our stay.
Thank you for making our trip to St. Petersburg such a memorable experience.
Yosi Ben-Ari, Israel.
Just wanted to let you know that we were very happy with the appartment in Liteiny Prospect - very modern, very clean, and not a bad location! We would certainly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of holidaying in St. Petersburg. Best wishes!
We?re back to our ordinary life now, but we wanted to thank you as we had a great time in Russia and enjoyed it very much. Your appartment was great: very clean, plenty of room and very comfortable. As well as located very centrally.
We feel really lucky we found you. Also Alexandra?s help was
great. She helped us in everyway and tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
She also organized a day trip for us to visit Peterhof and Tsarkoye Selo, which was
fantastic. We had a really knowledgeable and charming guide which made it all the
more interesting. We would be happy to recommend your appartment to anyone interested.
Hello Roxana, I write you my impressions of my stay in your Fontanka appartment. The flat is very nice and cosy, the remont (renovation) is very well done. View from windows to the canal is beautiful. Location is good, everything is at walking distance. I enjoyed my stay at the appartment and may well use your services again. Regards,

Thanks for your good service and kind attitude with all you
did for me. My stay in your apartment (Liteiny prospect) was really great, I enjoyed it a
lot. It is excellent situated, has a luxurious though cosy interior and provided all I
needed. A special thanks to Alexandra too, who was so kind and friendly to me and my
friend, her advice and caring was heartwarming.
