A great location, great service and staff (special thanks to Ekaterina for all her help), and a wonderful place from which to visit St. Petersburg. We spent 5 days in early August in the Barcelona room (3 of us). We looked forward to coming back from full days to unwind. Walking distance to most sights, although by the end of... More

Not a single bad thing to say! Staff were wonderful, food was outstanding, rooms are comfortable and cared for. Highly recommend, it was a retreat after being on my feet wandering streets all day and feels like a home rather than a hotel. Treat yourself! Only thing to consider is location is a bit out the way depending on how... More

If you like small boutique hotels, you will love the Alexander House. Situated on a quiet street overlooking a canal, it was a short walk to the many cultural events at the Old and new Marinsky Theaters. The rooms are very charming- exposed brick walls, random width hardwood floors, large picture windows and have nicely appointed modern baths with heated... More

This was our first visit to St Petersburg and Russia so we were slightly apprehensive about the potential language and cultural differences, reasonable charges for services, etc. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful, all spoke good English and were able to tell us all we needed to know about getting around, public transport, restaurants and taxis, and...
