This hotel stands out not only for comfortable and attractive facilities, but also for the sincere help of staff for every aspect of the visit. They provided us with Letters of Invitation for Russian visas, and assistance with tickets, taxis, and comforts. Our room was spacious, with nice chairs and a lovely view of an historic church. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast and room service very good. The hotel is five minutes from the Mariinsky Theatre. We used a taxi to visit the Hermitage and the city centre, with help from staff because taxis are unregulated. This is our fourth visit to st. petersburg, and we would recommend this hotel.

Dear Marysenior,

Thank you so much for choosing our hotel. We are really glad to hear that you found our hotel worth visiting - especially taking into account the fact that this was your fourth visit to St.Petersburg. Recommendation from such an experienced traveller is extra valuable for us.
Our staff is our main treasure - finding the right people for our front office always was the main priority for the owner of Alexander House - and it is so nice to hear that his concept works well.

We are always glad to see you among our guests.
Best regards,
Anna

Lovely little hotel - very classy but not overpriced. Our room was large with a very comfortable bed. The staff were so friendly and went out of their way to assist with anything we asked. The breakfast and free wifi was fantastic. Location is good - about 30 minute walk to the Hermitage or 20 minutes to the metro. We enjoyed the walk but I suppose it could be tough in Winter.

Really great hotel, friendly staff, clean, spacious, beautiful rooms and a very pleasant courtyard. The downside is that the hotel is approximately 30-40 min walk from the city centre and there is no nearby metro.

Dear LeedsHan,

Thank you for choosing Alexander House Boutique hotel and thank you for taking time to share your experience. We are glad that you enjoyed your staying with us.

You are absolutely right regarding our location – it is not in the very city centre but in one of the oldest St.Petersburg districts named Kolomna and the fact that this place associated with classics of Russian literature and history make us proud to be here. And this place is quiet and calm so our guests can sleep well. Of course, it takes about 30 minutes to get to Nevsky, but our guests can use public buses which are very frequent or order the taxi at the reception desk. By the way, new metro station Teatralnaya near the Mariinsky Theatre (5 minutes walk from us) is under construction now, so we will be within walking distance from the metro soon.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again. Wishing you pleasant and enjoyable travels.
Best regards,
Anna

Nice little hotel with big rooms. Apart from that, service and staff is excelent. Our flight arrived in the madrugade and the reception staff proposed us to do an early check-in paying an extra 50% price for that day (including breakfast), which turned out to be a great idea because since it allowed us to have a very convenient rest before strolling through the city. Maybe the bathroom may be below western standards for this kind of hotels.

This was our first trip to Russia and the Alexander House staff made it a very pleasant experience: they were prompt dealing with the visa letter and when we got there were all very friendly and welcoming, compensating for our lack of Russian. The room was spacious and comfortable, and tastefully furnished. The breakfast was fantastic - a wide range of options, with porridge or eggs made to order.

We chose to walk into the centre each day, which was about half an hour away, although the Mariinsky and St Nicholas Cathedral are just up the canal/road. We would have been closer to everything if we had stayed off Nevsky Prospect but didn't regret staying in a quieter part of town. St Petersburg is very pleasant to walk around with all the canals and we didn't feel at all unsafe. The hotel felt like a haven to come back to with the pleasant outdoor courtyard, room and staff.
