Full breakfast was delicious. I travel a lot... More

Sleepers on the train from Murmansk and Petrozavosk were dirty, toilets were filthiest I have ever seen, the hotel in Petrozavosk was strange, so I was prepared for yet another bad and unpleasant experience at Alexander Hotel in St Petersburg.

We loved it! Building is carefully remodeled, room was spacious, breakfast was fantastic, staff was so very friendly and helpful in every way. We loved being out of the center on a quiet canal, note that you do have to commute to get downtown but we sometimes walked, sometimes took the bus, and it wasn't bad.
