I would have to be really choosy to find something negative about Alexander.
Rooms are extremely clean, reception looks like 5 stars, common areas decorated in style. Superb view of psiloritis' peaks, environment of excellent quality & condition. For the picky ones, bathroom size will be a minus, but not for me.
If you are visiting off season, better to call in advance, so you can check in easier. The reception seems to be not occupied all day long in winter time & spring, but there is someone at the neighboring elderly people's home (owned by the same company).
