We stayed at Alexander House for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. Our room was Marrakesh. It was spacious, nicely decorated and quiet. Breakfast was the best we had in our 2 weeks in Russia. The restaurant meals at night were also excellent with good variety. Staff members were all very helpful and had good English. We will definitely... More

There are three things I love about this family-run guest house: the location, the rooms and the food. The Location Ok, so the hotel isn’t in the thick of it in St Petersburg which might be a negative for some people but I found this just what I was looking for. After a sometimes challenging time navigating around Russia, struggling... More

Very nice hotel, lots of nice artwork on the walls, spacious well appointed rooms, great breakfast & excellent staff who were very helpful with arranging taxis, circus tickets & other activities. This is a great place to stay in Saint Petersburg. Highly recommended!

Calling this a guest house is very misleading - it's part of the Small Luxury Hotel Group and is a real find. It is decked out with some fabulous art and ornaments. There is even a lovely sitting room with a log fire for colder months. Location wise it isn't very central. That was no problem for us and I... More

Perfect for first time visitors. Located in a historical sight. You can walk to the tram and to the metro. Staff is really helpful, speak english and professional. The rooms are perfect and the breakfast is really good. I will highly recommend it.

As the title suggests the hotel is pretty much at a quiet corner of the city. After having dinner at around 8pm, my wife and i found ourselves the only people walking in the street. The rooms are pretty big and we stayed at english themed room which is a little tacky if you ask me. My biggest peeve though... More

I stayed here with my husband as an anniversary treat. The staff knew it was a special occasion for us and promised to give us a great room. We stayed in "Paris", which was perfect for us. Overlooking the canal with its own balcony, we were able to enjoy the beautiful views from inside and outside. The room itself was... More

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!
