I just finished a long weekend in Amsterdam and stayed at the Alexander Hotel based on recommendations from TripAdvisor. I even got the dreaded "basement room" that others warned about, but I have to say it wasn't as bad as I feared. I stayed there with two other people. I made my reservations late and when I checked in and... More

Don't be misled by the "Museum Quarter" and think it's far from everything else you want to see. It was better priced than the central hotels and a very easy walk all over the city! Highly recommend this hotel. The room is very small but you should be in there much if you're touring!

The Alexander is a well-located hotel in one of the old buildings in town, meaning that it is a narrow and tall place. This also applies to the rooms which are narrow and tall, do not expect a lot of extra space. This is common for all such hotels though. I stayed in room 15 which was unfortunately situated directly... More

A great hotel for a short City Break in Amsterdam. Boiling Hot Shower, clean towels changed every day and bathroom was immaculate. The bedroom was big enough for 2 friends to be in without feeling tight - you could walk all the way around the bed, there were 2 chairs and a small wardrobe too. We found some english music...

Just got back from a weekend in Amsterdam with 2 friends and would definitely recommend the Alexander Hotel. The room was lovely, we had a triple room which was number 7. It was really spacious and clean, and the beds were lovely. The receptionist was so helpful and let us leave our bags there before check in. Breakfast was the... More

We stayed at the Alexander Hotel for one night in February. It was easy to find and is in a great location for visiting the museums nearby. Staff were attentive and friendly and the room was clean and tidy. The continental breakfast was fairly good with a selection of bread rolls, croissants, jams etc., meats, eggs, cereals and tea and... More

We took two rooms just for one night, as we were on a stop-over in Amsterdam. Having read previous reviews, I asked for rooms in the upper floors to make sure we were not given the ones downstairs, almost basement. Good thing we did, the rooms were two floors up, very quiet, tiny but fine for our purpose. As we... More
