This is a beautiful, small hotel in a converted merchant's house on the bank of a canal. Each room is individually designed and many of the house's original features have been preserved. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming and seemed sincerely committed to ensuring the comfort of their guests. Breakfast was superb with a wide choice of food and...

The Alexander House deserves its #1 rating on TripAdvisor. I visited Russia before in organized tour groups, but this was the first time on my own. I was concerned about the language and transportation. No worries at this lovely hotel. I felt welcomed and taken care of from the moment I walked in. The desk and concierge staff are fantastic....

We loved staying in this little hotel, and were very well looked after. A great location for walking to the Mariinski theatre, and convenient to public transport. The breakfasts are superb, though we found the restaurant service a little slow for dinner. We missed not being able to make tea or coffee in our room, but were told some rooms...

Excellent customer service. In coming to Russia, I was nervous because this was my first visit to the country. However, upon checking into this hotel, my nerves disappeared. The hotel staff spoke English fluently and were very helpful during registration for the first day of my stay. From the Mariinsky theatre, it is only 10 minutes away by foot. I...

This has good reviews and rightly so. It's reasonably priced and you get great service. Friendly helpful staff who humour your attempts to learn Russian, room names, not numbers, which is always a hint somewhere is special.

I spent four night in Alexander House an everything was perfecting away; nice room, friendly staff and even fireplace in breakfast/dining-room. Bit far from main shopping-street but not too far and Marinsky Theatre is only 10 min walking away.

I hesitate to write this review given that part of me would like to keep this special little hotel to myself but another part is happy to explain that Alexander House has just about got everything right. To begin with its slightly off-center location tucked away at the side of a canal is restful. The 30 - 40 minute walk...

Three nights definitely not enough, would have loved more time to luxuriate in comfortable Stockholm room (cocooned in fluffy white duvets or taking power showers) than sightseeing in fabulous St Petersburg allowed.
