Stellar location with easy access to many sites. An easy walk or tram ride from train station. Helpful staff. Small rooms by US standards but had everything we needed. No place to really place 2nd large suitcase other than on the floor. Rooms were clean. A/C worked well on hot August days. Nice breakfast buffet.

We've stay at the Alexander hotel and very happy with this choice. Very good location, a few minutes walking from central station, city center. Little bit small, but clean room, elevator and good tasty breakfast. One more important thing: extremely friendly personal.

Convenient location. Not a luxury hotel but clean and well located and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was a great way to start a day of moving around the city. For the money I would suggest staying here. Near everything

Visited this hotel for one night. The location was perfect. Just a 10 minuttes walk from the railwaystation. Nice rooms and good breakfast. We got a room with a small view to the river. IT was a nice bathroom, but it was a bit unusual with just a glass door between the room and the bathroom.
