The concept of bed and breakfast is somewhat new to St. Petersburg, although some locals have been supplementing their income by occasionally renting out rooms to travellers for years. A new generation of B&Bs, however, now provides an appealing accommodation option that allows visitors to share the home life of St. Petersburg residents, with the added advantages of personalized service and assistance, and often very attractive and comfortable rooms and interiors.
