“Nothing fancy. Functional clean rooms at a good price.”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

The Hotel Alexander is a very standard three star hotel in an older stand-alone building that you can find just about anywhere in Italy. The rooms are basic and haven't been renovated in some time; the keys to the rooms are old fashioned metal things with teeth, that are attached to heavy brass plaques with the hotel's name; none of this new-fangled plastic entry card system here.

What causes me to give the Alexander the extra point is a variety of things. First, it is pretty well situated, being a 5 minute walk from the center of town. Second, they have on-site parking (for an extra 10 euros), a godsend in a country with 5 cars for every parking spot. Third, the staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful. Fourth, the room was clean and everything in the bathroom worked as it should. Fifth, free breakfast; nothing to write home about, but free is free.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Sanremo and would happily go back to the Alexander if we were ever to find ourselves in this part of the world again.

Great staff, extremely helpful, nothing too much trouble for them. Very good value for money. Very clean rooms.Great to have private parking. It may not be a 5 star hotel but the service is 5 star. We have stayed at this hotel for the last 3 years and enjoyed our stay every time.

Room Tip: Just ask the staff and tell them what you need!

We stayed here last year and found the hotel to be very friendly and helpful, so we have stayed here again this year for 10 nights. Once again its as good as last year. Free bikes which you can ride on the purpose built cycle lanes (which was the old railway line). Breakfast excellent and staff very friendly and helpful. We got a free bottle of Carva on Sat night for no reason which was a nice suprise. Its also very central. A 5 min walk to the railway station and a 3 minute walk into the lively town centre.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front look out over the garden which is nice.

My friend and me, we stayed in hotel Alexander in september 2012! It was my friend, who booked the hotel and it was my bday, he did mention it during the booking procedure! When we arrived to the hotel, there was waiting for me bottle of prosecco and a note wishing me happy bday! I would never expect something like this and it made my day even more great. Hotel is located in the city centre, and very close to the beach promenade as well. Breakfast was served in the garden and because it was sunny day, I couldnt imagine anything nicer! Staff in the hotel was very kind and helpfull. And something else! Hotel has got few bicykles which you can rent and they rent it for FREE! And let me say, something like this, you dont see very often:-) Maybe this hotel is not the fanciest one I ever been to, but for sure it has got SOMETHING UNIQUE! I hope, they will keep it that way for the future! Definitely would come back!

Just had a week here & overall very pleased. Really good and pleasant staff and nothing is too much effort for them. Large, spacious, convenient first floor room with air con & the best double glazing I've come across, shutting out the noise of the (could be busy) road. Great buffet breakfast in the gardens was really good and served from 7 to 10 each day. Take advantage of the free bike hire & go on the special dedicated coastal cycle path on the old rail track. Only suprise was the 10 euro a day car park - not mentioned on the web site, but with parking at a premium in the city I doubt if we could have parked cheaper or more safely. Would stop here again if we come again.

Room Tip: Ground floor very handy!

Travelling with two small kids. Room was spacious, clean, free wifi, air conditioned, perhaps a bit kitsch/dated on decoration, but then again the building is old. Breakfast in the garden very pleasant. Parking is valet and a bit tight, but hotel is situated in the middle of town. Definitely see the old town, which is a short stroll away. Wonderful!

Hotel has arranged discounts in a few local restaurants, and a beach- do ask about these on check in.
