In five minutes drive is the city center and the main street of St Petersburg – Nevsky Prospect.Exclusively designed interiors and a special family atmosphere combined with all modern amenities are our great pride. And also one of the reasons so many guests return to “Alexander House” over and over again.Each room is unique in its own design and named after the most beautiful cities, such as Rome, Bangkok, Copenhagen, London, Marrakech, Mexico and Venice.

This review is long over due. If you would like to stay in an original, modern and yet authentically Russian setting, Alexander House is for you. Denise was amazing, and I would like to thank him for his wonderful hospitality, he truly made my stay special with his tips and giving his vacation time to give me a brief walk with such interesting stories, thank you. Don’t stay in a cookie cutter commercial hotel you can stay anywhere, go for an authentic experience. This place is close to the Marinsky Theater also gives you a choice to walk inland toward the coast, giving you a chance to explore the off beaten path and not just tourist spots, 15 minute walk to the Winter Palace. I highly recommend the Copenhagen as a cozy room choice on the top floor.

It is always a pleasure to stay at Alexander House. For this trip I took the deluxe Helsinki room and was not disappointed with the spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated "Finnish" style. The staff are all exceptionally well trained, friendly and helpful. Since the purpose of my trip was to attend "The White Nights Festival" at the Mariinsky Theatre the location is perfect. This hotel is absolutely first class.

Dear Valerio! Thank you very much for your review and high evaluation! We are glad to know you found the location of the hotel so convenient, rooms quiet and staff helpful! They all do speak very good English to easily communicate with guests and discuss any topics they like! Our hotel is perfect for those who plan to visit the Mariinsky Theatre because it's just 5-7 minutes walk. We are looking forward to seeing you and your friends again. Come back in the summer! Our beautiful terrace in the inner-garden will open its doors for our guests. Best regards, Alina Atkina, Development Manager.

I would recommend Alexander House to anyone visiting St Petersburg. I was travelling alone and the staff couldn't have been more friendly or more helpful - organising transfers and taxis, printing out maps, providing local information. Communication on email always quick, clear and friendly. Also, LOVELY hotel - large, elegant communal area upstairs, a good cafe/bar, fantastic buffet breakfast and lovely bedroom. Very comfy bed, immaculately clean, well supplied. On a pretty canal, short walk from Mariinsky Theatre. Would - will! - definitely go back.

Dear CHNW10, Thank you very much for your warm review! We are truly happy you felt so comfortable during your stay. We always do our best to help guests with all the details in their trip organization. Also, it is good to know you found the interiors of Alexander House so lovely with spacious clean and well-supplied areas. We do proud of our breakfast buffet and are happy you enjoyed it as well! We are looking forward to your return! You know that it takes about 5-7 minutes to walk to the Mariinsky Theatre so it is always a great idea to have a glass of sparkling wine on the terrace before the performance or to have a hot dinner in front of our fireplace after it! Best regards, Alina Atkina, Development Manager.

I was happy to return to Alexander House after a fabulous stay last year. The staff are most welcoming and helpful and you are made to feel at home immediately. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable, and the breakfast is worth a trip to St Petersburg alone. I was in the city for the Mariinsky theatre which a short and easy 10 mins walk. I had feared poor weather in February and was prepared to spend much of the trip in doors, thankfully I was able to enjoy the sights but the alternative of spending time in the lounge with a good book would have been a pleasure. I am very much hoping to return again in the near future.

Dear mandybT2458JC, We are delighted to read such a warm review, thank you so much for sharing your experience! We are happy to know that you came back to us and that this stay was no less fabulous as last year. One of our purposes is to make each guest feel at home and we are glad you felt this was too! Unfortunately, most of the time the winter in Saint Petersburg is poor but luckily we have the charming fireplaces where guests can get warm sitting in front of it and drinking a glass of mulled wine! We are waiting for your return as well as you do and hope to see you very soon! Believe us, in summer your stay is going to be even more fabulous due to our beautiful open terrace with flowery greenery and warm sunny weather of-course:) Best regards, Alina Atkina, Development Manager.
