Reviewed 11 September 2011

My wife and I had the most fabulous time at the Alexander House Boutique Hotel in St. Petersburg. The staff is fantastic, breakfast is delicious and the room is extremely comfortable and neat. Will definitely stay there again when I'm back to St. Petersburg.

The service was great and the room was surprsingly large; we got the Venice room by request and were very impressed by the size and aesthetic appeal. The service was great; we reserved ballet tickets with the front desk and they were very accomodating. The breakfast was very solid and the terrace is a beautiful, relaxing place to hang out after a long day of walking. The only downside is its distance from a metro (20-25 minute walk to nearest one) but if you don't mind walking or taking cabs, this is the perfect hotel for St. Petersburg

A beautiful place, gives you the environment of home, decorated with beautiful furnitures, a blooming garden and unique rooms. Once you have entered the hotel you are spoiled by the staff in the reception, the conceirge, during breakfast (great food), and the staff that cleans the room twice a day and always leaves some water, candy, choclate... People always smile at you and offer their help. would love to come back. Tips: from the nearby street (Sadovaya) you can take bus 181 or 49 that will bring you to Neavsky Prospect - 21 rubals only and it is very convinient. done't hesitate. otherwise the hotel will arrange a taxi for you . Also, they arrange a transportation from and to the train station or airport which is very convinient.

Stayed with friends during the city's anniversary celebration. We were pleasantly surprised by the great work ethic of the staff. The food was fantastic (I recommend the stroganoff!). The staff was always curtious and helpful. They left champange and fruit for my birthday with a note! They spoke English very well and were patient with our lack of Russian. Marian was especially outstanding. If staying in st Petersburg, Alexander house has it all!
