“Only 3 stars because of the location...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

You only want to live at this hotel because of the good location near Leidseplein - not if you want a hotel with a good standard. The hotel is in itself not worth the price. I had a very small single room, a bad bed, not very clean room, and I had to tell the receptionist that shampoo and shower gel was missing!
Walls must be thin as I could easily hear guests talking from the other rooms.
The female receptionist was not very helpful, and she didn't even live in Amsterdam....

Just be sure to check out other hotels in the area before you decide for hotel Alexander.

We have spent one night during PLMA. Hotel location is good very central. Price were high for the quality given.
Rooms were dirty , towels were not clean and bathroom was dirty.
Room Key was problematic and I had to go up and down to open the door.

The people working in the reception were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: In case your room is in the last floor check if the door key is functionning properly

We spent 3 nights at the hotel, had a room with 4 beds, for our whole family. The room was just under the reception/breakfast area, so we heard every step above us early morning. the breakfast was excellent, i missed the eggs thou. the staff is really friendly, and helpful, and speak almost all languages:) there is free wifi. the hotel is located in a quiet street, but just at the corner you have already the city center. at the other end of the street you have the museum quartier, and also the area with a lot of restaurants. i would return to the hotel, and would recommend it to my family and friends also.

Room Tip: higher floors are quieter than the ones below the entrance level.

Stayed at the Alexander hotel for three nights. Very friendly reception and service at it's best at all times. Good recommodations, perfectly located in the centre and rooms of reasonable size but very comfortable. Good price considering the season and location, would definitely go back some time! ps. Keukenhof Flowerfields was amazing!

Well managed hotel. We had room at the very top and elevator did not reach there, thus we lugged our luggage through the last flight of steps. The attic rooms are small but well kept and all amenities worked. Free wifi worked well in our room. The continental buffet breakfast with lots to choose from. For the price compared to other compatible hotel the Alexander Hotel is well worth it. Easy transportation, both bus and tram, from Centraal Station.

Room Tip: No elevator reach attic rooms.

staffs were great and friendly, checkin was fast, wifi worked well, location was amazing! close to many things by walk or by tram. There's breakfast for 10 Euros with lots of choices (buffet), so it's also worth it! Hotel was clean and comfy! Can't complain a bit! there is a lift to room.

I was there during hectic hours: queensday, and needed a cab to go to the airport, the reception helped me, and everything went super smooth!

LOVE my stay here, and will stay there again!

Hotels in Amsterdam are ridiculously expensive, so we trusted Tripadvisor and chose Alexander Hotel mainly for affordability and location near to Leidsplein and the city centre. The staff are very nice and helpful, but the rooms are quite small, without a proper wardrobe or storage, the furniture and carpet look old and tired. Our room was on the top floor, that the lift does not reach, so we had to carry our baggage up a steep flight of stairs. Being right under the roof, the ceiling was low and in the bathroom we actually had to duck under the shower. We never had breakfast in the hotel so can't really comment, but casting an eye on it we never felt we were missing something. Considering all those pros and cons, if we visit Amsterdam again we will stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Not on the top floor.
