Alexander is very nice hotel with friendly and very helpful staff. My husband and I have arrived few hours earlier of check-in time and they have been keeping our belongings in a security room as long as we wanted. The same service we had on our departure day. The location is excellent (just behind Marriott Hotel): easy to get to... More

Stayed here 3 nights with a ETBD tour. Room 28 top floor, no elevator to this floor. Room was clean, quiet with a large bathroom. We had a good view of the courtyard and the resident parrots. Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel is on a quiet (for Amsterdam) sidestreet.

My two friends and I stayed in a triple room in the Hotel Alexander in October. It was fantastic! Our room was lovely and the service could not have been better. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, making personal recommendations for sight-seeing, shopping, restaurants and jazz venues. The Hotel was perfectly located within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to... More

Stayed three nights in November, booked a triple room for my husband teenage son and my self, we were put in a basement room that was very cramped and airless there was very little natural light and if you opened the window it was extremely noisy. It was more like staying in a hostel that a hotel- very bad level... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to read that you were not satisfied with your room. You have booked your room quite last-minute, that was the only room available and because of the room being in our Soutterain level (half basement), we offered this room for a very interesting and low rate. During your stay we... More

The hotel was clean and comfortable, but the size of our room was tiny...hardly room to move around. We did ask for a larger room but were told the hotel was too full. I would recommend the location...close to restaurants, bars, and great shopping on the '9 streets'. Maybe the 'Vondel " down the street has bigger rooms....

Small friendly hotel which caters mostly to tourists. Street parking is available, however it is very expensive. When I arrived I parked on the street only for an hour while checking in, and after that I brought my car to Olympic Stadium P+R parking which costs only 8 EUR per 24 hours. It was only a short tram ride back... More

The rooms were small but comfortable, however as my door was near the stairs I could hear people coming & going all the time. At least I was so tired after each day's touring that I slept through most of it. It was a bit of a walk to most of the local conveniences but that didnt bother me coz... More

After great difficulty finding a hotel in Amsterdam we decided on this facility. Even though the rooms were small for american standards we realize that they are average for hotels in Amsterdam of even greater star ratings and price. The location is excellent. I would advice anyone to stay in this area instead of the very busy and crowded center... More

My husband and I stayed for two weeks in September 2011 at the Alexander Hotel. The location is perfect for a vacation in Amsterdam -- a quiet residential street that is close to many of the major attractions and good restaurants. It is also just a short walk in either direction to the trams and canal excursions. We had everything... More

Alexander was like an oasis after a long day of hotel room searching (on foot) without success. After all the dumpsters we had seen that day (very busy weekend-Amsterdam hotels were all fully booked due to multiple fairs) this hotel seemed like the perfect refuge. Simple, small, clean, offering great location. Best room that our money could buy..
