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.
