Beautiful rooms, excellent food

Posted Oct 9, 2014
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing really.
Location: It's not close to major sights but we were picked up each morning so it was no concern to us. We prefer boutique hotels to big chains.
Stayed three nights at this hotel. It was wonderful. A quiet hotel on a canal - had wonderful sleeps here. The rooms were large and nicely decorated. The staff were attentive and spoke good English. The breakfast choice was the best we had in our 2 weeks in Russia. The evening choices were quite extensive and the food was good. Lovely public areas as well. Highly recommended and would stay again. It seems to be popular with business people as well as those on holiday like us.

Quite possibly the best hotel in St. Petersburg

Posted Mar 31, 2014
Pros: The staff, the furnishings, the room quality, the caliber of service provided, the breakfast service - all were amazing.
Cons: If they could outfit a small room with something like an elliptical trainer, stationary bike, and some weights or a small gym, that would be ideal.
Location: Less than a half-hour walk to the Winter Palace and many other attractions, as well as many fine restaurants, the location is quite good.
I found every single aspect of staying here to be absolutely delightful. The staff were uniformly helpful, friendly, courteous, and committed to going out of their way to make my visit comfortable and enjoyable. The building itself is a marvel - dating back to 1821, it's rustic interior features wood floors and beams that make it seem like a spacious country home, yet the furnishings are surprisingly cosmopolitan, as though the former owners had traveled all over the world and brought back artifacts for guests to enjoy. The 24-hour service - from check-in to room service to dining and drinking in the restaurant - was a real bonus. I very much look forward to staying at the Alexander House again in the near future - in fact, it's one of the main reasons I am planning to return to St. Petersburg this summer.

Charming, well run, well-located. I'd come again.

Posted Sep 26, 2013
Cons: A few more rugs on wood floors in passageways to muffle some footsteps.
I spent 4 days here, enjoyed it enormously. The staff is excellent, motivated and professional. Walked to major sites - St. Isaacs, St. Nicholas's, Mariinsky. Slightly longer walk to Sadovy Metro and Nevsky. Breakfast good, coffee also. Professional service, kept track of details, taxi, airport pick up, laundry. Excellent. Would return.

Small luxury hotel

Posted Jul 11, 2013
The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The restaurant food is consistently good - although the options are limited. The only slight negative is that the hotel is a bit off the beaten path. My hunch is that you won't find a better hotel in St. Petersburg.

Cozy, funky boutique hotel in St. Petersburg

Great Hotel! Cozy and staff very friendly. Is a little off the beaten path, but can get to metro or city center with a short bus ride (thanks Google Maps)

Very nice hotel.

Posted May 25, 2013
Pros: Most everything about the Alexander House met or exceeded our expectations.
Cons: Mattress was a little soft.
Location: Near the churches of St. Nicolas, the Trinity, and St. Stanislaus. The Marinsky Theater was two blocks down the embankment; Hermitage a 30 min. walk.
We had deluxe "Mexico" room at back of building overlooking the courtyard. It was very quiet, spacious, and comfortable. The breakfasts were good, the staff responsive but unobtrusive, and the location (just down the block from St. Nicolas church and the Marinsky Theater was convenient to tourist sites. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Alexander House.
