We spent 4 nights at the Aleksander House and it was very enjoyable. Our room was so comfortable and the breakfasts were incredible. It was fun talking with Nancy, and Nina and Angel were superb. We plan on retuning to Louisville in March and will stay here again. Thanks for a great weekend.

My girlfriend and I spent a "girlfriend's weekend" in Louisville on Nov. 1st and 2nd. We stayed at Aleksander House B&B and it was delightful. We had the room at the back of the 2nd floor. ("Roxanne's Room") and it was light and airy with high ceilings and lacy decor. We had twin beds (they can convert to King) and... More

Contacted innkeeper by phone on same day. She stated she had not been able to get to it, all was well, and took our preferred breakfast seating time. Arrived 6pm... More

Although there were a series of events that ultimately got in the way of informing this customer of what was going on in advance, he is correct that his experience was simply not okay. However, I would like to explain that we do have staff present whenever guests are checking in. But, on this particular day, my staff assumed no... More

Worst place I have ever stayed. Only because the owner is tryin to sell the house and no longer cares about the business. She was rude the entire stay and told us we were inconsiderate when we rang the doorbell to get in one afternoon during their scheduled check in times. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

I am truly sorry this guest found our service to be lacking, and that it ruined his ever having a chance to experience our well-known sense of propriety and hospitality. In addition, as stated in another response, unfortunately, I must sell my bed and breakfast, but it’s still my business and livelihood, as well as my home and reputation. Jeopardizing... More

The best thing about this property is the location. Twenty minutes or less will get you to all the sights in Louisville. The home itself is beautiful and in very good condition. The neighborhood is awesome - lots of beautiful Victorian homes. Breakfast was very nicely served and good. Definitely recommend this B & B if you're staying in Louisville.

My sister and I, from Nashville, met our cousins, from Cleveland, OH, for a girls weekend in Louisville, roughly halfway between all of us. I had found the Aleksander House when searching for girls' getaways. Nancy, the owner, had put together a package for two nights, up to four people, including water and soda, a bottle of wine, a pizza... More

I was overnight in Louisville on my way to Detroit. My meeting in Detroit was pushed forward, so I had to leave the B&B very early in order to be on time. I'm sorry I missed breakfast. Upon arrival I met Nancy, who gave me a tour of the home, and a little of her personal history (I asked). I... More

Cool house, good food, splendid company. Location was close enough to be within easy striking distance of downtown and Churchill Downs. I recommend this location without reservation. Stayed for a weekend in Louisville I'll remember for the rest of my life.

Nice place to stay in Louisville, however a few clarifications are in order. Parking is not provided as listed on the website...parking is on the street and typically available within a block. The booking contract listed "full gourmet breakfasts, and a champagne brunch". There are no accommodations if you have an early flight, and excuses are made by the owner... More

It is unfortunate that this particular guest focused on what she considered to be negatives, rather than the many positives and the obvious work and detail that were put in for weeks to provide her party with a positive Derby experience. I was surprised she did not mention (in her review) any of the ways in which we tried to... More

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
