We chose Hotel Alexander for its location and the fact that it could accommodate 3 adults in the same room - almost an impossibility anywhere else. However, we landed up in the annex of this hotel (pre fab in the untended garden!) which was basic and rather dark . It was adequate and clean but bit of a disappointment -... More

This is a well located, well run hotel with outstanding service from staff (Jay and Tony). The rooms are quite small, but they are very clean, the bathroom was good, and the high ceilings make the tight quarters more comfortable.

Hotel Alexander is in a great location - easy to find your way around and the staff are extremely helpful, demonstrating that they want you visit to be a good one. They provide advice on how to get around and even tips on being safe. The neighbourhood is a good one, lots of other hotels etc. It is a very... More

Staff was friendly and helpful, but we got the basement room - noisy from both the street and other travelers. Cleanliness was average. The location is great for going to museums, and ok for public transportation, but we stayed in a much better hotel for a better price the following week.

Very friendly people, but room was not as clean as it should have been. Found hair on the bedspread, bathroom was as clean as it should have been. They did not replace papergoods when necessary. Breakfast was adequate, but the table and chairss were too big for the room and made it very crowded. Tiny rooms, but that's expected in... More

My family and I spent 3 nights in the family room of four in Hotel Alexander during May 2012. The hotel was conveniently located near Leidseplein whereby there were plenty of eating/shopping places and tram services. Many places such as Museumplein were accessible by foot. The room was clean and cosy and the surroundings were peaceful and quiet unlike most... More

My family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed at Hotel Alexander for 3 nights last May 19, 2012. It was a nice hotel with very friendly and helpful reception personnel. Upon check-in, he gave us a map and suggested tourist places for my family. It was a nice suprise to find an elevator there. We stayed at a family... More

I recently spent a long weekend at the Hotel Alexander, staff were very friendly and accommodating, happy to store luggage before check-in/after check-out or give directions. We booked at the last minute, so only available room on the top floor was small (as expected for Amsterdam) but very clean and neat, as was the shower room. Location is excellent, on... More

I really must get one of the cameras used to take room pictures for hotel ads. Because our room at the Alexander Hotel was one of the dreaded down under rooms and no picture would do it justice. Fortunately, it was ok: clean, roomy, the beds were comfortable, the shower and TV worked and there was hot water. The location... More

Spent a few days at the Hotel Alexander. Great location and a very accommodating staff. They were very helpful and had very good dinner recommendations. Our room overlooked the street and was quite comfortable with a large private bath. Only shortcoming was free wifi was only available in the lobby.
