This hotel is close to perfect .... if it prohibited smoking in the restaurant it would be 110%. probably hard to implement in Russia though.

The Alexander House was a great choice for my birthday celebrations. Extremely comfortable room with an excellent bed. Marvelous view out onto a frozen canal from our room (called St. Petersburg). The food and service were also very good........the heating failed when it was -25c outside but that was a problem for the whole district, not just our hotel. Would stay there again without any hesitation.

Spacious suites. Interesting public rooms. Clean and comfortable. Courteous, young staff.
No tea making facilities in rooms. No bath but a good shower.
Decent breakfasts. A bit of a treck to the main sights of St.P, (due to slushy snow and ice on roads, easier in summer no doubt).

The good news:

Smart new stylish private hotel. Our room (Marrakech) was practically a suite, comfy bed, very warm, heated floor in the bathroom. The public areas are smart, comfortable and clean - the sitting room even has a log fire which the staff were happy to light.

So far, a five star gem hidden away in the centre-ish of St Petersburg.

The bad news:

Our room only had a shower - not for lack of space as the bathroom is big, but no bath!
The beds are provided with odd 1.5 width duvets and only one pillow each.
No kettle or cups provided.
A looud humming noise filled the room 24 hours a day
The windows only have thin blinds on them so the room is lit with street lighting all night.
The staff are willing but clueless - for example we couldnt pay for meals in the hotel with a mastercard!

Overall - if you can live with the shortcomings this is an excellent place to stay in St P.

Thanks for all management and staff for such a wonderful place. We celebrated our first wedding night here and will never forget this evening…. When we come to the hotel, our room was decorated with candles and rose’s petals…. Everything was soooooo romantic - Champaign, fruits and subdued light.
You know, when we had come back from the noisy restaurant with lots of guests and attention for newlyweds, we wanted to be far from the crowd, just together and Alexander House gave us such atmosphere….

In the morning we ordered a delicious breakfast with home made pancakes and fried eggs, took a wonderful coffee and with lots of new feelings went to a new life of husband and wife.

Thanks a lot we certainly come back to celebrate anniversary….
