My boyfriend and I stayed at Aleksander House a couple of weeks ago and absolutely loved it. The room was charming with plenty of room and even a mini-fridge. The bed was outstandingly comfortable and you cannot beat the price. Nancy was wonderful to us and we very much enjoyed her company. Great location, close to everything and cost effective.... More

I loved staying at Aleksander House! My room was elegant and spacious with a huge four-poster bed. I had the third floor to myself while there, with a bathroom right outside of my room. Nancy, the owner, is a wonderfully sweet and accomodating person. She was even able to provide me with delicious gluten-free vegan breakfasts and was very knowledgeable... More

Beautiful rooms, attentive service, amazing food, and lots of great extras (cookies, snacks, reading materials, teas). Like a perfect European getaway in the middle of old Louisville. You won't be disappointed!

The innkeeper at the Aleksander House is absolutely the most interesting, inspiring, and FUN person I have EVER met in a B&B. I prefer to travel to B&Bs than hotels specifically for people like HER. The rooms are lovely, the breakfast (she accommodates vegans!!) is both yummy and GORGEOUS... can't say enough good things. It was the perfect place for... More

This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast. We really enjoyed ourselves. Nancy was a very gracious host. The house and rooms were very clean, and the food was delicious. I have special dietary needs, and Nancy so generously accommodated those needs. I would definitely recommend the Aleksander House.

My partner and I stayed in the Katherine room which was booked as a Birthday surprise for me and what a surprise it was. From entering the house the decor was stunning was like we had travelled in a time machine. Nancy is a lovely kind hearted soul and kept us entertained for the short time we was there and... More

I stayed in Katherine's room at Aleksander House on my way through Louisville. I travel all the time as I'm a musician and am always craving a perfectly homely but elegant place to feel human for a while and this ticked every box. And as a vegan and gluten free person...I never expect breakfast, but boy o boy, Nancy made... More

Nancy runs a great B&B! She was able to accommodate us in 2 of the rooms - all were wonderful - they truly felt like home. There is so much privacy in the Inn, as it is a huge, beautiful old home. She provided everything we needed, and more - snacks and beverages were always available, as well as a... More

We had a very warm welcome and a comfortable stay at the Aleksander House. The innkeeper, Nancy, is very kind and accommodating. The Inn has a lot of old charm and a nice backyard for the good weather. While the neighborhood had a lot of historic old homes, it was also rather quiet and not within walking distance to some...

Cozy and romantic, the food was outstanding, the location was perfect for walking in the historical district and the University of Louisville, and handy to Churchill Downs. Nancy was a pleasure to meet and talk with. We stayed in Roxanne's room, easy to access, very comfortable. A great introduction to Louisville.
