we chose this hotel because of the good reviews and were not disappointed. The place is charming, the rooms are big and are well equipped. Our room Bali looked exactly as on the photos. Service was top - many nice, positive english-speaking staff members helped to make our stay a good one. We had breakfast at the hotel and there...

This is an abnormal hotel in Russia: the staff are amazingly welcoming, the breakfast is superb, and the service is brilliant. But it's the little details that make it stand out: sparkling wine given on your birthday, a tour of the lovely hotel when you start, it's superb! The initial picture is mildly baffling as I don't know where it's...

Not having been to the city before we used Tripadvisor to find a place to accommodate a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers for our three day visit. Alexander House is tucked away in quiet location within walking distance of the city centre and along the way you'll get to see some of the less touristy parts of St...

Alexander House is a gem in St.Petersburg. Centrally located, very individual rooms for a reasonable price. Every room is different with other city/country themes. Very tasteful interior and the open fireplaces fill the house with this light cozy smell. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and everybody speaks very good english. The breakfast buffet has lots of choices and...

We stayed for 4 nights and from the opening of the door when we arrived to putting our cases in the taxi to go home, it was excellent. We stayed in the Bali room, which would have been a junior suite in a standard hotel, it was large with all amenities to a class higher than I had expected. Added...

Lots of thought and talent have gone into the design and management of this quiet and stylish little hotel. St Petersburg tends to do things on a grand scale: public buildings, statues, galleries and museums are all gargantuan. How nice it was, therefore, to find an oasis of calm and relaxation in a side street, hiding behind a fairly anonymous...

I think the description provided by the hotel describes it very well. It's a very comfortable charming small hotel. The staff was exceptionally helpful and we greatly enjoyed our stay. We thought our room (Marrakech) was terrific. It is a little distance from the centre of town - 10 minutes by taxi - but not such a problem. Strongly recommended.

From my first contact with the hotel ... calling for reservations, to my last goodbye every moment of dealing with the staff at the Alexander House Hotel was wonderful.
