We came to Alexander and found a trully beautiful hotel!!! All renovated, clean, beautiful garden, lobby, breakfast... More

It is a simple, familiar hotel that has everything you like: spacious and clean rooms, short distance to the beach (5min), parking inside the hotel...etc The owners are extremely nice and they look for your well being, giving you tips about the area and providing free beach umbrellas if needed. We felt treated like one more of the family, and... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed in Hotel Alexander for one week in July. We got a small room with three beds, bathroom and a balcony which is always a plus although the view wasn't so great. The room was very neat. The cleaning was in fact so thorough, that the cleaners used to organize our stuff on the tables and... More

I really recommend this hotel. Great location, near the beach, near the bus station to Taormina (15min by bus), close to restaurants. The staff is very, very friendly and helpful, especially Virginia. THANK YOU for your huge help. The rooms are very comfortable and have excellent views of Taormina and Castelmolla. Breakfast is quite good for a three-star hotel. Wifi... More

We had a great time there, we are pleased with the service, room, cleanliness and very friendly staff. The beach is not far, it is also close to the bus station where you can catch a bus and go to Taormina, which we recommend. :) The hotel is located in a quiet part of Giardini Naxos. Nearby you have a... More

Myself and three other ladies spent a week in Hotel Alexander in June. If you want peace and quiet this is the place to be. Our two rooms on the 3rd floor were very spacious with large balconies. Rooms were spotless with towels and bed linen changed frequently. Breakfast buffet was pretty basic but everyone had plenty to eat. This... More

I liked very much the area (Recanati) , it's very quiet, in comparison to the center of Giardini Naxos. The buss station is at 3 minutes walk, the beach 5 minutes walk,... More

Virginia is a lovely woman, and her staff are so nice! Virginia speaks English, the others mostly Italian. So practice! The room was clean, and from our balcony we had the BEST view of Mt Etna and Taormina. If you want sandy beaches, best bet is Giardini. Taormina's beaches seemed pebbly. Hotel Alexander had easy access to wonderful restaurants on... More
