I stayed on the 2nd floor in the Stockholm room and had a beautiful view of the church nearby. The room was spotless, minibar was well stocked and the daily cleaning...

What does one say about a property that anticipates needs of the guest perfectly and where every request is attended to patiently? This property might not look like much from the outside, but make no mistake, this is a well-run, impeccably maintained boutique hotel. We were a loud group of 15 people and each one had a ton of requests,...

I stayed at Alexander House in November 2016. This fantastic boutique hotel, with just 20 rooms, offered an extraordinarily friendly welcome. All the staff that I met seemed outgoing, pleasant and very hospitable. My room ("Nairobi") had a four-poster bed and thoroughly tasteful decor, as well as a copious shower room. There were also some very nice communal areas including...

Hotel was lovely, charming, and full of character. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and spent a lot of time helping with my trans siberian train queries even before I arrived at the hotel.
