“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The friendliest staff I've encountered in a LONG time. They were very busy because the local paper had just published an article which raved about the place! In spite of LOTS of folks and a few staff absences, our entire stay was smooth - thanks to the wonderful folks running the place and working there. It's an older hotel, just three stories high, with a restaurant, bar (lots of local and small craft beers on tap!), and coffee shop. The rooms are small but have very comfortable beds, fluffy pillows, and soft linens. Bathrooms are also small, but have tub and shower. The windows open, so you can let in some of the wonderful air in St Petersburg (and let out the stale, over airconditioned smell of many hotel rooms).
The rooms come with coffee maker, fridge, table and chairs but only one reading lamp. The owner is trying to preserve some of the calm of an earlier era, so there are no phones or alarm clocks in the rooms. We had a couple of special requests which were quickly fulfilled.
The hotel is very centrally located, just a few blocks from the Dali Museum, the Fine Arts Museum, the Chihouly exhibit and the pier. LOTS of really good restaurants nearby (and one right there in the hotel itself!).
Acoustic tile in the ceiling of the restaurant/bar area would help. On Friday and Saturday night with lots of people and live music, the place gets pretty loud. Our room was on the third floor, so we weren't bothered, but I'm glad we were up there. We plan a return trip in the near future. It's good value for the money.

Room Tip: Third floor, unless you want to hear the music without having to go downstairs!

We found this hotel to be delightful and a great value. Stellar decor in the lobby to welcome you funky furnishings and clever placements made for great leisure breaks .Staff was helpful and attentive when asked .The rooms were clean with nice bed linens and beautiful hardwood floors. A few minor minor things : no tissues in the room,fridge ran very poorly, no bathroom counter space and only 1 waste basket hence Boutique right? They had a fabulous in-house coffee shop which made my mornings splendid along with a FANTASTIC veranda to enjoy coffee on.The in-house restaurant maybe new to the scene they seemed to be struggling on our first visit
out of numerous items but they were very apologetic and the manager offered coupons for the next visit so it made up for the mishaps. Live music which was a nice extra. What a GREAT little gem for the buck
Note (we did travel with no children)

We stumbled on the Hollander House last week for a 2 day stay and liked it so much we stayed for 5. The Tap Room is a great place to unwind. The location is an easy walk to the waterfront. The price was very reasonable. I can't say enough good things about this place!

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room.

My wife Lorie and I are residents of St. Peteersburg. I read an article in a local publication about The Hollander Hotel, which inspired a visit to see this establishment on a Saturday afternoon. The Tap Room was very inviting, with a nice open view of the lobby and sitting room. The beautifuly renovated Euro-styled lobby and Tap Room is just ripe for a relaxing visit. Enjoyed some local brews and conversation with patrions, the food was priced affordably and tasty. Special thanks to General Manager Nick, who took the time to show us one of the rooms and share some history of the Hotel. They beautifully refinished the wood floors and brought a personal feel to life. We did not stay the night, but are sure to be back to this quaint place with friends and family. Great local getaway.

Lorie and I both really enjoy the evolving area and what the city offers. Hats off to "NAM", and the bar staff.

When you walk into the hotel you will be surprised- positively. Beautifully remodeled, modern and stylish. Rooms have everything you need, but are not fancy. However, the staff (everyone) is extremely friendly, always a smile on their faces and get attentive. Location is great, walking distance to Bay front, restaurants, shopping. Hotel has EVERY night live music. He hotel has a bar and restaurant and a coffee shop. Again, all staff very friendly and food as well as coffee are tasty. Coffee shop owner knows coffee!
