Alexander House is not a large scale chain hotel, its success is in the personal service they deliver. The rooms are named after cities of the world. We stayed in London, which was light and airy with a nice bathroom (with great underfloor heating). Breakfast was excellent the fried eggs & bacon and omelettes in particular. Danillo on reception deserves...

This really is a home from home. We were welcomed and looked after from the start. All the staff were helpful and friendly but I have to single out Danilo who went beyond the call of duty and personally made sure our every need was catered for. It was my husband's 40th birthday and they presented us with a surprise...

A beautiful hotel with very unique rooms. Each room is designed after a specific country. I was staying in Stockholm and my friend was in Venice. The pricing of the room is quite affordable in view that it is Saint Petersburg. It is not the best location but within 10-25 mins walk to most tourist attractions. Staff were professional and...

Alexander House is a gem! The hotel itself is perfectly lovely, in an old house with many twists and turns. Each room is individually decorated and they are all quite different. The rooms and public rooms are immaculate, but at the same time very cosy and welcoming. The wonderful wood fires, so comforting on chilly St Petersburg evenings! But what...

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...

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...
