About the house
We call it Our House because of the relaxed atmosphere and special conditions which my wife and I wanted to create when we decided to renovate the old building on a Kryukov Kanal.
The elegant building in which the house is situated was constructed at the beginning of the 19th century for a prosperous St. Petersburg merchant. During the reconstruction of the building, my wife and I spent a lot of time making sure that we were restoring the building as close as possible back to its original appearance.
We knew when we first found the building that we wanted our house to be unlike anything else in St Petersburg. That is why each of our 20 rooms is different. We believe that a good design helps people to unwind which is very important nowadays. We offer an old world comfort, with a modern service: nice spacious rooms, queen size beds with high quality linen, TV, telephone, high-speed internet, bathroom with all needed amenities to feel comfortable and relaxed during stay.
Alexander House is located in the historical area of St. Petersburg known locally as the soul of the city, in which the heroes of famous Russian writers such as Gogol, Pushkin and Dostoevsky used to live. It is about a 25 minute walk to Nevsky Prospect, and along the way you can pass canals, embankments, beautiful houses and many more attractions.
Most of all, my wife and I want you to feel that Alexander House is your “home far away from home”. Our staff speaks good English, and I know that they will do their best to make sure that you enjoy your stay with us so much that you wish to come back.
We are looking forward to see you at Alexander House!
