St. Petersburg B&Bs: Five of the best

The bed and breakfast market in St. Petersburg remains a very mixed bag, with properties ranging from some of the most highly recommended lodging in the city to appallingly amateur ventures demanding money for little more than the use of someone's grotty spare rooms. In selecting our best St. Petersburg bed and breakfasts, we have looked for establishments that offer a combination of good-quality, stylishly fitted accommodation and personal interaction with friendly and helpful owners or staff.

Located near Sennaya Ploshchad in a busy area of the historic centre, this highly-rated bed and breakfast is run by a charming, well-traveled Russian lady who really enjoys spending time with her guests. Opened in 2003, the Assembly B&B is cozy and lived-in, and owes its popularity to the sterling reputation it has built up with travellers in over a decade in business.

44, Ulitsa Galernaya, St. Petersburg, 190000, RussiaShow on map 1.81 km
Nearest metro: Admiralteyskaya
It calls itself a hostel, but this stylish converted apartment on beautiful Galernaya Ulitsa, close to the historic New Holland shipyards and the Mariinsky Theatre, has more the atmosphere of a B&B, with all rooms designed to accommodate families or groups of friends. Bedding arrangements in rooms are flexible, however, and prices are very reasonable, so individual travelers can also enjoy the spacious and attractive accommodation. The kitchen is superbly equipped for self-catering, and bathroom facilities are extensive. Excellent for families, but best if you speak at least a few words of Russian.
