The room was smelly, the carpet was filthy, the bar fridge was not working, the aircon did not work, the WiFi did not work, paid for 13 nights and only staid in one, run away as quick as i could, would not refund my money. Please be very careful if you go there.

Neighborhood is pretty scary, especially during the evening. Dirty carpets in hallways and in rooms. Tiny elevator which stops only on half-floors. Breakfast very poor selection and small quantity of food for a buffet style, with one server only who would bring scanty trays, clean up, warn about not working juice machine… I honestly wonder where and when pictures were...

If you dont care about tough mold smell in a room (like myself because i only spend night in it), choose this hotel. Quite cheap and in the center, near to many attractions in Genoa. Window was open all the time, so the smell was kept minimum. My biggest downside for this hotel were towels. It was embarrassing - I... More

We went to Genoa where we started our cruise with the MSC line. What I liked best regarding the Hotel was the location. We could walk with our suitcases from the Hotel to the Cruise Terminal. During our one day stay in Genoa we could easily reach the old part of the town, the interesting old palaces and buildings, the... More

I am staying in Alexander at least ten times. Yes, the hotel is not really a three stars, but anyway, it is clean, warm, and the position is good, only five minutes from the aquarium. The staff is excellent!

We were exhausted when we got here and could not be bothered looking around, so took it for one night with the possibility of two (just in case). It's no 4 star but they don't claim to be!! The room was not large but big enough, small bathroom and we literally had to turn 360 degrees to get our bodies... More

We arrive in the evening and made our way from Genoa Railway station through somewhat down at heel streets to the Hotel Alexander ( booked on-line). The reception area was a bit shabby and smelt of cigarette smoke and the male night shift receptionist was not especially welcoming. The piece de resistance, however, was the baseball bat stashed behind the... More

We booked this hotel because it was about the only one we could find that was available when we were in Genoa. Although it is very close to the train station, which was beneficial, and the rooms were fine, the front desk people were the opposite of helpful. They were all amazingly grouchy for small hotel staff. The check in... More
