Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Excellent Hotel, excellent costumer service. Location is great (centre Annecy) close to everything!
Overall, the room was VERY clean! Loved the service!
Rooms are small, but that's how it is in Europe overall. However, rooms were modern, just like the bathroom.
I would definitely recommend this hotel! And I would stay here again, no doubt! Great for families and staff is just great!!!

We primarily chose this hotel because of the ratings on Tripadvisor and its value for money and were very pleased with our choice.

The Hotel is only 2* - but this does not mean it is run down - it just means it doesnt have many 'perks' such as lifts, air con, swimming pool.

A few points for anyone staying here:

There is no lift, and all the rooms are at least 20 steps up - ours was 60 steps up. Stairs are wide and not too steep but just be prepared

It isnt quite in the old town - in fact very few hotels are, but this does mean you arent right next to a busy noisy restaurant.

If you choose a canal side room you wont get much noise or disturbance from the road and bus stop outside some of the other rooms

There is no air con, a fan is provided, but if you have a canal room I would suggest leaving the windows open

Very few hotels in Annecy have a lake view - this hotel doesnt either - but dont let that put you off - as for the money you wont find a hotel with lake views

The staff are all very friendly, helpful & polite.

The hotel is in a very old building, but the rooms are vibrant and brightly decorated which gives the hotel a clean feeling.

Dont expect a lot of space, the room is mainly just the bed with a very small desk and wardrobe - but its enough for what we needed and all the buildings in Annecy seem small.

Breakfast is good - dont expect 4* offerings however there is a reasonable choice and it is all fresh and the place is kept clean.

So all in all, the hotel was perfect for what we needed and we would definitely return if we came back to Annecy.

If you do come to Annecy and want a relaxing day of refined enjoyment, get the boat to Talloires. It is much quiter, isnt by a road like most of the lake and the Abbeye hotel right in the harbour does reasonably priced lunches which are delicious and set in a beautiful location.

Room Tip: Canal view room seemed worth the little bit more in my opinion

Spent 4 nights in Alexanda Hotel due to our love of the local area (canal side bars, restaurants, Lake, boat hire, water sports etc) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Met by friendly and welcoming staff on arrival and shown to our room, which was a standard double overlooking the canal. The room was amazingly well finished almost verging on "boutique" hotel status. Great bathroom and shower, although a little on the small side.

Staff recommended restaurants and bars in the area along with a map of things to do and sample in Annacy. Had a few beer and wine too which were very well priced, cheapest beer I had in France!

Location is great as it's right in the centre although the trade off is the noisy road in the evenings. Tends to attract people talking loudly whilst coming out of the locals bars, which really annoyed us on a few occasions. Our windows could be closed but the room soon got hot.

The hotel offers discounted secure parking in the local car parks, which are only a short walk away. There's a hotel drop off bay outside to load/unload on arrival/departure.

Can't recommend this hotel enough nor its staff. Really enjoyed our stay made amazing by the great room and helpful staff.

Our family of two adults and two kids (11 and 13) stayed here in June 2013. The location was excellent (close to the lake, bakeries, the old town, etc.) and the staff was very friendly and helpful (tips on sightseeing, etc.). The room size was small, but normal for hotels in Europe. It was a bit hot in the room on a couple of nights and not easy to leave the windows open due to street noise. Overall, a great hotel!

Like someone said before, it is really well located, close to the entrance of the old town and also to the train station. Rooms were small just like most French hotels of the same category. Very nice breakfast and staff. When I wanted some tea during the afternoon I was offered a tray with cups and a teapot to take to the room. Very nice of them.

Room Tip: Be ready to climb some stairs. It is worth it, though.

A 2 star hotel, very clean, great location, super staff and well priced.
You do need to have the constitution of a mountain goat to negotiate the stairs but, other than that, a very good stay.
Overnight car parking is paid by the hotel in a nearby garage.
