Friendly welcome from all staff, especially Tony and Jay. Large, quiet, warm and clean room overlooking the garden where wild parrots come to roost in the large tree. Special! Perfect location for museums and walking through central Amsterdam. The Festival of Light was in nearby locations and worth seeing soon. Just ask at the reception desk and any requests will... More

We had a 22 hour layover in Amsterdam, so planned to go into town and spend the night. We had booked the Hotel Alexander and quite enjoyed it. The location was perfect, close to restaurants and easy to get to from the airport via bus 197. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Room was clean and just what we needed... More

This hotel met all of our needs; it was clean, well-situated on a quiet street, and the people behind the desk were very helpful with restaurant suggestions, etc. The room was a pretty good size for a European hotel and there was an elevator up to our floor except for the last half flight. We didn't have the breakfast at... More

An excellent location and great reception staff. The very good at orientation, had excellent recommendations and generally were very accommodating. My single room was tiny, but I understand this is normal in Amsterdam. Unreliable Wi-Fi meant I couldn't go on line when I needed to. No information in the room regarding the hotel or its services, for example that you... More

Jay at the Hotel Alexander was very helpful in getting our ticket to the Rijks Museum printed. The hotel is located just a few blocks from the museums, and we had a very quiet room on the top floor. The hotel can be cheaply and easily reached from the Amsterdam airport by taking bus 197 for 4 Euros per person... More

Small rooms is pretty normal if you're staying anywhere in the canal type building. Alexander was close to the vondlepark area and the big museums and close to bus/trams that could get you to Dam square or any other spot you wanted to get to. This place has newly remodled bathrooms. I think they possibly sacrificed a little of the... More

The location of the hotel is in the centre of the city, which make it a strategic location to start browsing the city of Amsterdam. I'm doing a solo trip and I'm a kind of person prefers walking and wondering around the city. This location gives me a good starting point to explore the Amsterdam in a very convenient way.... More

The location is perfect and the hotel is clean. As in most hotels of this price the rooms are small. Make a point of asking them not too put you in the attic room as its even smaller with the sloping ceiling. Do not let this put you off this is a lovely hotel and the guys on reception could... More
