Reviewed 30 November 2014

This was our most recent stay in this wonderful little hotel (our room was Mexico), and the whole establishment really continues to out-do itself. Beautiful building and decor, fantastic staff, a great and quiet location, and amazing food on top of all of that. Since it was Thanksgiving, the staff graciously agreed to have a table reserved for us and...

The Alexander House is in a beautiful old building in a quiet neighborhood very close the the Mariinski theatre. It's wonderful just to stroll along the channels in the old quarters of St Petersburg. The hotel's staff is amazing, very kind and helpful. We stayed in a standard room (Mallorca) which was spacious and romantic. There are also lovely common...

This was definitely one of the best boutique hotels I have stayed in. From the reception and check in to the departure, everything was wonderful. The staff are all young but extremely responsive. The rooms (we stayed in the Peking Room) are well appointed. Breakfast is a highlight, with a lovely buffet style spread and eggs or crepes made to...

There are three things I love about this family-run guest house: the location, the rooms and the food. The Location Ok, so the hotel isn’t in the thick of it in St Petersburg which might be a negative for some people but I found this just what I was looking for. After a sometimes challenging time navigating around Russia, struggling...

Calling this a guest house is very misleading - it's part of the Small Luxury Hotel Group and is a real find. It is decked out with some fabulous art and ornaments. There is even a lovely sitting room with a log fire for colder months. Location wise it isn't very central. That was no problem for us and I...
