The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They really go out of there way to make your stay enjoyable. The hotel is an affordable option for anyone wanting a convenient location in Amsterdam. The rooms were are not luxurious but are very comfortable. There are numerous restaurants and stores in the immediate area around the hotel.

+Really genuine and friendly staff. Good location near vondelpark and bus to the airport schiphol. Comfortable beds too. -The hairdryer only works a couple of minutes at time and the shower was really economic...if you talking about the small amount of water...but no cold water just warm. I even saw a silverfish! But beside that, if you want location and... More

Close to the Amsterdam city centre this is a very nice and cosy hotel. Staff is really friendly and willing to help you to find the best restaurant or to arrange the parking for your car. Breakfast is not as diverse as in other hotels, but for sure more affordable.

I found a last minute booking for the Single room here and it was quite literally the smallest room I've ever stayed in in my life. However, it was lacking for nothing and was generally clean, if a little dusty. The bathroom ceiling was low in the shower, and if you're >180 cm, you will have to hunch over if... More

Dear Dr S, Thank you for your review. We are happy to see that besides the size of the room, you found it generally clean and not lacking of anything.

Lovely clean hotel. Perfect location in a quiet area but close enough walk to town. Double room was two single beds pushed together but were comfy. Friendly and helpful receptionist on arrival. No tea and coffee facilities, but note did say kettle was available on request.

We reserved a room for three adults--my wife and I and our 24-year old graduate student son--and chose the Alexander based on the photo on the web site of a rather spacious room with three single beds. What we received was room P-3, a converted shed on the patio, a separate area from the main hotel. It was a crowded,... More

The Alexander Hotel is a typical three-star hotel in terms of its amenities and condition. However, it is in a great location, the young staff are very nice and accommodating and the rooms, while basic, are clean. For the money - it's good value in an expensive (but wonderful) city.

A small nice simple and clean hotel close to the museums and central Amsterdam. This is a room, a bed and a bathroom. Nothing more. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good. This is all you need for a shopping and concert weekend. Worth the money and that's why I regard it average.
