We stayed here for 5 days. Location is amazing, few minutes walk from everything, Leidseplein, tram, and everything you need. The room we had was not big and really "old fashioned", we booked a prepaid room without breakfast, price was good, but with the same price we could have found something better. I selected Hotel Alexander, reading the reviews, hoping... More

Dear Kiraa21, thank you for your review. Yes, our hotel is truly old fashioned. We are sorry to read that you were not satisfied with our customer service. Part of check-in process in our hotel is explanation of important or most wanted spots in the city, however during late/night check-ins we released this part. The reason is that most of... More

Good Location to explore Amsterdam. Staff very helpful (receptionist even paid my parking with his card as meter didn't like UK cards!) Breakfast good and plentiful. Room clean and pleasant but a little noisy as by the garden and below the bar.

Small Tourist hotel that is a legitimate three star property as it is clean, adequate staff support, nice outdoor area, all in a convenient location to walk to Vondelpark or entertainment and restaurants around Leidseplein.

Dear Jeff, Thank you for your prompt review. Our street is considered quiet, regarding the 'city noise', however we can't control what are people doing during the night. Traffic is higher during the day, but still really acceptable. We hope to welcome you again! More

This hotel was right near the Van Gogh Museum and was on a quiet street. The staff were there 24 hours a day and were very helpful. The breakfast was so so. The coffee comes from one of those espresso machines that make pretty poor coffee. Our triple room was spacious and had a lovely balcony that overlooked the garden.... More

Dear GeoT, Thank you for your objective review. With coffee it's difficult since it appears that everybody are having different taste for it. We are always improving the level of our service and that is also why we already have new coffee machine. For now I can tell that it's liked by everyone. Regarding the smoke smell, our whole hotel...

The hotel is in easy walking distance of the museums and close to bus and tram stops. We booked a room late and were given a small room overlooking the garden - but with a double bed squashed up against the wall, which meant some gymnastics to get out in the night! The breakfast was advertised as being "continental" but... More

Thanks a lot Trooper1941, for your time writing this review! It is true that our Small Double rooms are small (that's why they are named as small). We are glad that after all, it was what you expected and we hope to see you again in the future! Best regards, Alexander Team. More

We stayed for 3 nights and found the reception staff most helpful. We had a lovely loft style room which was most comfortable. The breakfast was well worth having as there's not much open nearby if you want an early start. Location was perfect for the thing we wanted to see.

A great place to stay if you want a good location. Close to museums and attractions and a safe distance from Red Light... Rooms were clean, although ours had a bit of an odor. Room size was, in my opinion, adequate for big city in Europe. No problem there. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. A real classy group runs... More

The hotel is located on a charmiming quiet street close to the museums, Vondelpark, and the tram. Hotel staff were efficient and professional. Room was very small, and not much space to hang clothes. Bed was comfortable, bathroom clean. Very basic room showing some wear and tear, but affordable price. Good breakfast for 10€.

Hotel Alexander is a great place to stay in Amsterdam. It's located very conveniently to Vondelpark on one side and Leidseplein on the other--very close to the main canals. Not only is it close to things, but it is on a very quiet residential street, which is great at night! The staff at Hotel Alexander were incredibly nice and very... More
