Alexander Hotel is very conveniently located near Leidseplein (for shopping and dining) and Museumplein (for the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh, Stedelijk and Concertgebouw). More importantly, it's just a stone throw from tram (Leidseplein) and bus stops that connects you to the rest of Amsterdam (trams 1,2 and 5 will take you to Centraal Station and vice versa). The hotel's staff are... More

Quite street in Museum quarter, old building with steep stairs. Room was surprisingly big for Amsterdam, with large comfortable bed, price was reasonable. Maybe just a couple of disadvantages: a very tiny wardrobe (with strange smell inside) and missing mini-bar.

Started out wrong - the key card had no envelope so you had to hope that you remembered your room number. When I opened the door and saw the room, I was hoping that I remembered incorrectly. No such luck. The one window in the room looked directly at a white graffiti covered wall 6 inches away. The carpet was... More

... and easy to jump on any tram to anywhere. The hotel is almost bordering the Vondelpark (maybe a block away), which puts it close to everything (as an example, the big museums are about a 5 minute walk). The rooms were the smallest we'd seen in The Netherlands, but, frankly, to get a reasonably priced hotel in this city,... More

Alexander Hotel is a nice hotel in a great location. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and very spacious, though the furniture was a bit worn and overdue for a replacement. Good value.

Stayed here 2 nights at the start of my trip around Europe. Arrived at the hotel straight from the airport and they could not give me early check-in as they were full but they could store my luggage. The staff were extremely helpful, asking if I needed to retrieve anything from my bags and if I needed a map of... More

I happened to arrive in Amsterdam unexpectedly, last minute decision and therefore I did not have a hotel booked. I managed to come across this hotel late in the evening and asked the receptionist for a 'double room' as I was staying with my partner. After paying £75 for just that night, I decided I would stay in Amsterdam for... More

Loved this small & friendly hotel, very near park and downtown. On a quiet residential street. Staff were so accommodating and helpful. Great buffet breakfast (10 eu) . Situated w. a lovely garden in the back. Only complaint was the shower, could not prevent it from shooting all over the br floor. My companion enjoyed hearing my "arguing" w. the... More
