Wow - location, staff, food, rooms, service, attention to detail - what more could you ask for - wonderful, peaceful and relaxing accommodation and so close to the Mariinisky Theatre - a credit to the owners for making this a truly memorable stay.

We picked to stay our first night in St Petersburg here because it is just a short walk from the Mariensky theatre. It turned out to be the perfect choice -after a long train journey and an a rather tedious taxi ride across the city at rush hour we arrived to a warm and thoughtful reception. Room huge and characterful... More

All in this hotel is perfect. Not far from the center (25 mn by foot), nice decorated rooms, excellent service and welcoming. Breakfast is just enormous and tasty. All the personal is very nice. Prices are fare... So I recommend largely... Very nice

Warm, comfortable hotel blessed with the feeling of a small private club. We had the Barcelona apartment as we were travelling with 2 children, so the two bedrooms and large sitting room and kitchenette suited us very well. The staff hiring policy is a credit to the owner with lots of very well educated young Russian people who are incredibly... More

I spent six nights at this hotel in late October 2015, and I was quite impressed by the quality of the services. My room, Bali, was more a suite then a room, tastily furnished and exceptionally well maintained. Its windows opened onto a courtyard on one side and a narrow ally on the other, ensuring that in exchange for the... More

Everything was excellent including the quiet location. St Pete is a BIG city and if you stay near Nevsky Prospect you'll pay a fortune or stay in a dump. We liked the walks. The tram is close and easy to use and the hotel is good at getting cheap cabs. Staff all spoke English and were great.

We highly recommend Alexander House for wonderful personal service in a small and comfortable boutique hotel. The best part of our visit to St. Petersburg was Alexander House. Staff and service was excellent all around . Restaurant service till late at night, good food, lovely rooms and patio. Thank you for personal and friendly service!

Quiet location, fantastically helpful staff, wonderful and comfortable room, great breakfast and restaurant, All this was topped off by Maria, the tourist guide who was knowledgable, helpful, fun to be with and flexible enough to vary the itinerary and make recommendations to meet our needs. The hotel was outstanding in every way.

We've enjoyed the luxury of the Alexander House, but one caution, be ready to walk 25+ minutes to anywhere of interest. Cabs are certainly the way to go from this hotel as the closest subway station is a 20 minute walk. That being said, the rooms are well appointed and the morning breakfast will fuel all your needs!
