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.

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

Posted May 27, 2013
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.

brilliant boutique hotel

Posted Apr 30, 2013
Location: location was great on picturesque canal and particularly convenient as I went one night to Marrinsky opera which was in walking distance
I really enjoyed staying at the Alexander House hotel. It was charming with friendly and efficient staff and it was wonderful that the kitchen was open at all times so you could get good food and drink whenever you wanted. They were extremely helpful about calling taxis for me whenever I wanted and everyone there was courteous and delightful. My only minor quibble is that one window in my room didn't have very efficient blinds so the light got in and if I had been there during the summer white nights that might have been a problem. But in general I loved the hotel, would definitely return if I revisited St Petersburg and would recommend it to friends.

Great Hotel

Posted Feb 20, 2012 on Hotels.com
Only slight downside is that it is away from the centre however it is still within walking distance of most sights. A nice warm (almost too well heated!) hotel with very good and friendly staff who all spoke very good English. A good selection of good quality food in the restuarant and a nice touch is that breakfast is until 11am (11.30 at weekends) Can be throughly recommended.

Great room, great service, great dining but ...

Posted Sep 14, 2011 on Hotels.com
Great room, great service, great breakfast and a wonderful garden in the back for a nightcap. Overall a great experience but a bit out of the way. About a 15-20 minute walk to the main sites, ie Hermitage, Nevsky Prospect, etc. Hotel is located on a quiet, old city street bisected by a canal. Staff is very good ordering a cab but St. Petersburg is a tough city to find a cab on the streets to get back to hotel. Still if you like a nice stroll, this is the place for you.
