First thing I noticed when I arrived at this hotel was the service of the staff. A very friendly and helpfull asian-looking man asked if this was my first time in Amsterdam and advised me many good places to visit here. I enjoyed my stay over here and the location is quite central. Definitely a place to go back to!

This is a great hotel located on a quiet street very close to Leidesplein, the restaurant and nightlife area of Amsterdam. Very close to tram lines and to Vondel Park. Also an easy walk to the museum district (Van Gogh and Rijks). Staff are very nice and willing to help with whatever you need. Rooms are small but nice, relatively... More

Hotel Alexander is located close to all the leidseplein action, in a lovely quiet street. A 2 min walk will take you to the bustling Leidseplein square with plenty of bars and street side dining. At the square you can also take the tram to Dam square, centraal station and museumplein. The airport bus no 197 also stops at Leidseplein... More

We stayed here 3 nights during an unusual warm spell. They had a oscillating fan in the room that was wonderful for sleeping and creating white noise. The beds were comfortable and we had a mini fridge that came in handy. The room is very small but to be expected in large city. There is a lift every other floor.... More

We stayed here a couple of nights recently. The hotel is in an older building with a nice garden.The room we stayed in wasn't large but adequate. Tall ceilings but with a cramped area around the bed so two people couldn't pass by at once but this is an old building and like London, space is not abundant. The room... More

Unfortunately, the cons outweigh the pros. The pros include the location (close to the Leidesplein with its shopping and restaurants) the lovely lobby and courtyard, and the outstanding staff. The cons include the unreliable wi-fi (particularly annoying for a business traveler), towels that, although clean, appear to be relics from the 1960's, and the fact that the lift actually stops...

The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. We did not try the breakfast, but it looked very nice. What we really appreciated was the hotel staff's help and advice on how to get around Amsterdam to see all the sites.

We stayed at the Hotel Alexander for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The managing brothers were very helpful and the young female receptionist was extremely personable and lovely to deal with. We were in the small double room which included breakfast in the room rate, and found this to be an excellent inclusion. We didn't need to worry... More

This is the second time when I'm in Hotel Alexander. Hotel is located quite close to the city. Restaurants are close. Only 5 minutes walk to a wide selection of restaurants and bars. Museums are also very close and Vondelpark is only a few minutes walk away. Hotel room was clean with a "terrace". Great room for 4 persons.

You only want to live at this hotel because of the good location near Leidseplein - not if you want a hotel with a good standard. The hotel is in itself not worth the price. I had a very small single room, a bad bed, not very clean room, and I had to tell the receptionist that shampoo and shower... More
