“Nice street”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

The rooms were small but comfortable, however as my door was near the stairs I could hear people coming & going all the time. At least I was so tired after each day's touring that I slept through most of it. It was a bit of a walk to most of the local conveniences but that didnt bother me coz I like walking. The street was nice & the staff were friendly

After great difficulty finding a hotel in Amsterdam we decided on this facility. Even though the rooms were small for american standards we realize that they are average for hotels in Amsterdam of even greater star ratings and price.
The location is excellent. I would advice anyone to stay in this area instead of the very busy and crowded center around Dam Square. There are excellent restaurants, museums, parks, shopping and quiet streets.
The Staff (thank you again J and Tony) made all the difference.

Room Tip: the garden in the back is beautiful and peaceful. ask for a room with exterior views (to garden or...

My husband and I stayed for two weeks in September 2011 at the Alexander Hotel. The location is perfect for a vacation in Amsterdam -- a quiet residential street that is close to many of the major attractions and good restaurants. It is also just a short walk in either direction to the trams and canal excursions.

We had everything we needed during our stay including breakfast every morning, a nice bathroom, and a clean and comfortable room and bedding, The terrace off of the breakfast room is very pretty with tables and flower boxes, and coffee and tea are available all of the time.

The feature that sets this hotel apart from others, however, is the friendly and helpful staff. Several times we came back from dinner in the evening and chatted with the staff about what we did that day. They added our experiences to their list of recommendations to give to future guests and offered their ideas for sights and activities we might enjoy during our stay. We had lots of laughs and they shared many things about living in Amsterdam and Holland. It was very homelike. We will stay at this hotel again if we do a return visit to Amsterdam -- and we may return to Amsterdam just to stay at this hotel!

Alexander was like an oasis after a long day of hotel room searching (on foot) without success. After all the dumpsters we had seen that day (very busy weekend-Amsterdam hotels were all fully booked due to multiple fairs) this hotel seemed like the perfect refuge. Simple, small, clean, offering great location. Best room that our money could buy..

We make a habit of staying in the Alexander on our overnight escapes to Amsterdam when visiting family in the Netherlands. Great location, comfortable beds, clean and airy rooms and friendly service make it a great place to stay. Peak season prices undermines its usual value for money a bit (we paid Euro 95 for a basic double without breakfast), but that's a minor quibble. Will be back again soon.
