“Family of 5 stay at Hotel Alexander”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We travel as a family with 3 kids (aged 7, 5 and 3 as of this review). We needed somewhere with a room for five in the center of Perpignan. This was by far the cheapest option at the time, 88€ for a room (#42) with a double bed, a single and a bunk bed.

We had read about the poor breakfast but since it is convenient not to move from the hotel for breakfast with children we went ahead at 7,50€/adult and 4€/child. It was very basic: bread, croissants (which were quite nice), cereal and fruit basically. Fortunately they only charged for the breakfast of our two older kids which was kind of them.

As said throughout most of the reviews Hotel Alexander is a good value for price no frills well located hotel with an average (non hot) breakfast. But good enough for us travelling as a family on a budget.

Room Tip: Room number 42 caters for 5 with a double bed, a single and a bunk bed.

In a great location, within easy reach of the major sites and the shopping centre. Our room looked over the street, but nevertheless was very quiet. The bathroom was tiny, but you get what you pay for. This was a good "value for money" option and the staff were very helpful.

For a reasonably priced hotel right in the centre of the city it is OK. The rooms are not very large, the shower room iwas small with no shelves and the clothes hanging space is minuscule. However the staff are friendly and for a one night stay it's acceptable but beware as our room had a distinct tobacco odour from a previous visitor no doubt. Room was otherwise clean and the breakfast was pleasant with a selection of cheese and meats.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main street are from the first floor upwards, double glazed and quiet

Arrived late, and were expecting better. Shown as 3* but was really basic. Two people can't fit in the bathroom, and only a tiny shower. Room was clean but basic. payment taken after we came in from a meal. A/C worked, and was welcome, but again, basic unit, either on (blasting away) or off. We did not sleep well. Red Hotel sign flashed away all night outside the room, we felt we were in a brothel!! They refused to fill our flask with water!! Sorry, not a good one, never again.

Room Tip: If you have to stay here, try to get an inside room!

No frills hotel, clean and comfortable but basic and located about three minutes from the medieval gate to the old city and 20 minutes walk from the station.
Note that on most days you need to give notice if you want to leave before 7am as the door is locked. Breakfast is more generous than in many French hotels, but also needs to be booked.

We stay in Perpignan Hotel Alexander every time we go to Perpignan, it is a very basic hotel but so cheap, we are a family of 5 and always get a nice welcome when we arrive, we only stopover there for one night because flights work out cheaper if we go on a Friday then we go to Le Brasilia for a longer stay usually only week. Hotel Alexander is right at the centre near the most gorgeous canal you will ever see, The little cafe's there have the most delicious French cakes (patisseries). Avoid the restaurants nearby because they are really expensive.

We stayed here as a one night stop off driving from Spain to dieppe. We booked short notice through expedia. Nowhere else was available so it had to be here. The truth of the Alexander is it is brilliantly located. The staff were friendly. The rooms Were okay if a little dated. The price wasn't bad. It was a bit noisy but you can get that at any hotel. Its a two star hotel but I've stayed in worse four star hotels. Our reasonably low expectations were exceeded.
