The location is very convenient, in particular for Mariinsky Theater; rooms are quiet, cozy and sparkling clean; the staff speaks English (in case you don't speak Russian). I will definitely come again

They all do speak very good English to easily communicate with guests and discuss any topics they like! Our hotel is perfect for those who plan to visit the Mariinsky Theatre because it's just 5-7 minutes walk. We are looking forward to seeing you and your friends again. Come back in the summer! Our beautiful terrace in the inner-garden will open its doors for our guests. Best regards, Alina Atkina, Development Manager.

I would recommend Alexander House to anyone visiting St Petersburg. I was travelling alone and the staff couldn't have been more friendly or more helpful - organising transfers and taxis, printing out maps, providing local information. Communication on email always quick, clear and friendly. Also, LOVELY hotel - large, elegant communal area upstairs, a good cafe/bar, fantastic buffet breakfast and lovely bedroom. Very comfy bed, immaculately clean, well supplied. On a pretty canal, short walk from Mariinsky Theatre. Would - will! - definitely go back.

Dear CHNW10, Thank you very much for your warm review! We are truly happy you felt so comfortable during your stay. We always do our best to help guests with all the details in their trip organization. Also, it is good to know you found the interiors of Alexander House so lovely with spacious clean and well-supplied areas. We do proud of our breakfast buffet and are happy you enjoyed it as well! We are looking forward to your return! You know that it takes about 5-7 minutes to walk to the Mariinsky Theatre so it is always a great idea to have a glass of sparkling wine on the terrace before the performance or to have a hot dinner in front of our fireplace after it! Best regards, Alina Atkina, Development Manager.

I was happy to return to Alexander House after a fabulous stay last year. The staff are most welcoming and helpful and you are made to feel at home immediately. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable, and the breakfast is worth a trip to St Petersburg alone. I was in the city for the Mariinsky theatre which a short and easy 10 mins walk. I had feared poor weather in February and was prepared to spend much of the trip in doors, thankfully I was able to enjoy the sights but the alternative of spending time in the lounge with a good book would have been a pleasure. I am very much hoping to return again in the near future.

This hotel is fantastic: room are very accurately designed and spacious. Our room had a wonderful view on the Trinity cathedral. Breakfast was delicious and freshly made everyday; we had dinner once and we enjoyed as well the food in the restaurant. The hotel is perfectly located to explore the city and the staff is very helpful and ready to satisfy every request or need for help. We had a wonderful time in St Petersburg and we HIGHLY recommend to stay at the Alexander House. Thanks for everything!

After just returning from a trip to St Petersburg, I felt compelled that I just had to inform other fellow travellers about the little gem of a hotel ~ 4* Alexander House. From the minute that we stepped into the building to when we got into the taxi for our return journey to the airport, one is made to feel so very special. Almost like being family. Nothing was too much trouble ~ the staff incredibly helpful , personable and so very helpful. Necessary phone calls on our behalf made: taxis booked: guidance with map reading and various good recommendations made. The Aleander being a Boutique Hotel was an incredibly interesting place to stay. Beautiful library, an interesting lounge with enormous log fire and likewise in the dining room/bar area. Our room and bathroom were spacious ~ full of character and spotlessly clean. Facilities excellent. Probably the only negative comment that I can make is that I felt that an anti slip mat should be placed in the large shower. If, and I hope so, I ever have the opportunity to visit St Petersburg again, I would not have the slightest hesitation in booking to stay at Alexander House. Thank you to all iof you for a most memorable stay.
