This hotel is rather small for St.Petersburg, but this is its advantage. Each room has individual style. Cosy and fascinating. The lounge is a very pleasant place, which will make a company stay enjoyable. It's a very quiet place, the breakfast is delicious. You would not suffer from overcrowded reception or street noise.

One of the most friendly stuff in SPb. Light and big rooms. Small beautiful garden inside. Europe part in the city center. Very nice cuisine. Also you can visit library. It is possible to use this hotel for bride's morning. In the room, garden, restaurant and library.

My wife and I stayed in the Bali room for five days in September. Everything about this charming hotel was perfect. We were encouraged to switch from a smaller room to the more generous Bali. We were allowed to bring our own wine in to the restaurant. The staff were unfailingly helpful and positive. The hotel is a little way... More

I absolutely recommend the Alexander House. It’s a wonderful boutique hotel—completely unique, with great staff and food and service and very competitive pricing, and absolutely worth staying at in spite of it being a walk from some historic sites. St. Petersburg is a huge city and main attractions are not grouped together in one big convenient clump, so no matter... More

One of the friendliest places I have ever stayed. Staff were really welcoming, helpful and lovely. A charming retreat and the perfect place to come back to after a day spent exploring St. Petersburg. Really good location, very close the Mariinsky and not too far from other attractions.

I stayed here for an extended weekend recently and was quite happy with the hotel and the staff.
