We stayed here a couple of nights recently. The hotel is in an older building with a nice garden.The room we stayed in wasn't large but adequate. Tall ceilings but with a cramped area around the bed so two people couldn't pass by at once but this is an old building and like London, space is not abundant. The room was quiet and the bed comfortable, we slept well. Furnishings are old and worn so don't expect fancy furniture, an old tv with all the channels and a mini fridge are available. No tea and coffee, which for the price is a bit stingy. I had to ask for some glasses to drink from and pick them up from reception, glasses should be standard issue. The location is terrific, near to the museums and transport and loads of restaurants. Easy access by bus to and from the airport. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and the room was kept nice and clean. All in all I would recommend the hotel for reasonable value for Amsterdam which is great city. Some tips:
1.Beware of pick pockets in Amsterdam. 2. get a bike 3. Eat fries 4. Great coffee at brewmasters around the corner 5 Take the bus (197)) from Leidesplein to and from the airport, cheap and fast.

Unfortunately, the cons outweigh the pros. The pros include the location (close to the Leidesplein with its shopping and restaurants) the lovely lobby and courtyard, and the outstanding staff. The cons include the unreliable wi-fi (particularly annoying for a business traveler), towels that, although clean, appear to be relics from the 1960's, and the fact that the lift actually stops in between floors. This means that you will be heaving your luggage up and down at least seven steep stairs; or, if like me. you are on the top floor, you will be lugging up and down a very steep 14 steps. Add to that the flight of seven to get in the front door, and you see the point of my title. If you are young and fit, with a strong back and no need for wi-fi, this may be the place for you. Also, Rick Steves' photographer stayed there while I was there, so what do I know?!?

Room Tip: Top floor for fitness buffs, only.

The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. We did not try the breakfast, but it looked very nice. What we really appreciated was the hotel staff's help and advice on how to get around Amsterdam to see all the sites.

Room Tip: Our room was on the back side of the hotel and was very quiet, even with the window open.

We stayed at the Hotel Alexander for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The managing brothers were very helpful and the young female receptionist was extremely personable and lovely to deal with. We were in the small double room which included breakfast in the room rate, and found this to be an excellent inclusion. We didn't need to worry about going out to eat each morning. The room was small, but we knew this in advance, so we were very pleased with the high ceilings and large, airy windows overlooking the quiet street. We are of the opinion that a hotel is for sleeping and showering, and these facilities were great. Our time in Amsterdam was wonderful, and the great location allowed us to truly make the most of it.

This is the second time when I'm in Hotel Alexander. Hotel is located quite close to the city. Restaurants are close. Only 5 minutes walk to a wide selection of restaurants and bars.

Museums are also very close and Vondelpark is only a few minutes walk away.

Hotel room was clean with a "terrace". Great room for 4 persons.
