Russia’s historic gateway to Western Europe, the North-West is home to St. Petersburg, the country’s capital until the early 18th century. A very large area bordering Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Belarus in the west (as well as Kaliningrad, the little extra slice of Russia that lies between Lithuania and Poland), North-West Russia stretches in the east to the Ural Mountains. A large number of Russia’s national parks are here, as well as the historically significant areas of Novgorod and Karelia.

Within a leisurely stroll from Nevsky Prospect there is a historic building of the Helvetia Hotel, with origins dating back to the early 19th century. The hotel's interiors successfully combine St. Petersburg's harmonious style with the elegance of European design. Native Russian cordiality, coupled with Swiss traditions of cosiness and hospitality, individual attention to every guest and international service standards, are the distinguishing features of the Helvetia Hotel.
It was nice beautiful and kind of European experience in Russia. The extraordinary experience was the staff. Entire staff was so nice humble and everyone has a smiling face. Like they love what they do.

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.

Old house being currently renovated. Some distance from the main attractions. Limited amenities... In one word - GREAT ! We loved the place. From caring and attentive staff, to many small details that were put there to make the guest's stay more pleasant, this was our home away from home. The hotel has that 'x' factor that is difficult to define. Also, well appointed and very clean. There is no doubt in our minds that we will return to Galunov when we visit again.

Small cozy hotel located in a quiet, leafy lane a short walk from the Moscow Railway Station. Walk along Ulitsa Vosstaniya from Nevsky and take first right after small park. Seven spotless rooms in lavishly restored former mansion looking onto monastery, very friendly service and attentive staff. Continental breakfast, Wifi, satellite TV, air-conditioning, 24-hour security, visa support, theater bookings, guided tours. We also offer accommodation at our chalets in the countryside.
Excellent place to stay in St. Petersburg in a restored grand home. We stayed 4 nights and only regret is that we didn't stay longer. The staff is wonderful, always pleasant and helpful. A wonderful touch that they provide is free ice cream and coffee/tea service in your room at any time. Hotel has a great location only a few blocks from Moscow train station in a very nice neighborhood with many good restaurants within a short walk. The city bus #22 stops a few steps away from hotel with direct service along Nevsky Prospekt and direct to Mariinsky Theatre. This made getting around the center city a breeze.

1. Located in the center of St.Petersburg. 2. Cozy and neat place. Good to relax between the short tour (Because I almost traveled by walk. For me, The outside was harsh because of the weather and the hostel was heaven.) 3. Kitchen is clean. You can pick up some groceries at a mart and have them in the kitchen.
