This kind of hotels are traditionally called „hidden gem“, however Alexander House is not hidden at all )) probably, the best luxury and boutique hotel in the City, is famous among advanced travellers. Not highly but extremely recommended. Keep in mind that all rooms are different.

We stayed as a family of 4 in the very spacious and comfortable Barcelona apartment during our first 5-day visit to beautiful St Petersburg. The experience could not have been better; the staff are extremely helpful and accommodating, the property is beautiful and conveniently located close to the Mariinsky theatre and transport hub Sennaya Plochad with access to 3 metro...

My wife and I recently spent 6 nights at the Alexander House, a small (20 room) boutique hotel in St Petersburg. It's located about 1.5/2 km from the Hermitage and other main tourist sites, in a quiet side street facing a canal. Transport into the central area is easy, either by local bus (nearest stop about 400m away) or taxi,... More

We (a family of four) visited St Petersburg in late June 2015 for my wife's birthday, and stayed five nights at the Alexander Guest House. The location is perfect, outside the city centre, but close enough to walk to the major sites; it is within easy walking distance of St Nicholas, arguably one of the City's greatest churches. The rooms... More

Very comfortable and quiet room, extra large for a hotel room. Wonderful design. Amazing service. The hotel has a warm feeling of staying in a private house, but with all necessary hotel services. Quite unique hotel.

This is a great hotel, no doubt about it. We found the service excellent, the food excellent and the rooms and appointments excellent. Sure it's a little out of the way, but St.Petersburg is quite spread out as a city, so it really depends on what you are there to see. We don't mind walking and ended up walking back... More

Stayed for 7 nights with our 21mo daughter in the 2bed Barcelona room. It is LOVELY. Our daughter was delighted with the large window seat where she could watch the boats float past every minute or so. We could also see two major churches from our window.

Charming property, well located if the evening program involves trips to the Mariinsky for ballet or opera, or if you want a break from the tourist rush after a day of sightseeing. Very professionally run, with superb housekeeping, maintenance, and attention to detail. Each room has a locational theme---we stayed in 'Paris' and our daughter/ son-in-law stayed in 'Venice'---both excellent... More
