    Superb

    Hotel staff make all the difference to a stay. These folk were so helpful, welcoming and interested. Would go back any time.

    Our room was right up in the attic : too many stairs and too little standing room in shower.

    The staff at Hotel Alexander were extremely friendly and helpful, always happy to assist with directions, maps, contact details and city information. The breakfast was great value for money compared to most!

    For Business travel, it is clean and comfortable.

    Very good location, many restaurants near Liestag (spelling?) Plaza. Access to trams and within walking distance to many sites. Friendly staff and great free wifi.

    Rooms can be a little small and are a bit aged. Ground floor room was a little noisy

    Exceptional

    Very pleasant and flexible attitude, rooms were clean and neat. Proximity to Leidseplein was ideal for us. From there you can easily take trams to other parts of the city, including the train station. Hotel provided a free map and advice on the sights worth seeing. Great experience! Tip: visit Boom Chicago at Leidseplein, excellent improv comedy in English

    The staff was very nice.

    My room was tiny, literally no bigger than the single-sized bed. It was filthy and there was no heat. Every surface had dust and dirt on it. The bathroom was decent, except for the cramped boat-style shower. It was also more expensive than better, bigger, cleaner, more comfortable hotel rooms. I switched after two nights to a hotel around the block that was $30 less a night, 4x bigger, and much cleaner/newer/more comfortable.

    Superb

    Comfortable centrally located hotel in a quiet street near Vondelpark and Leidseplein. The two brothers, Jay and Tony are excellent, patient and hospitable hosts: always offering suggestions or solutions to any question or issue a guest may have. I enjoyed my stay in the small single topfloor room with gardenview. In combination with the perfect summer days, the free flying green parrots in the garden trees created a semi-tropical ambiance. Hotel Alexander most definitely added (an almost homely) value to my stay in Amsterdam.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location, Leisplein only minutes away, fantastic location to visit museums Van gogh and others - great transport - got a bus right to airport, very cheap and convinient, instead of taking tram to Central station and train to airport. Pretty hotel, good service, friendly staff. Very quiet.. Small room, but to be expected for single occupancy in a city. Only drawback that I can say, is that you had to pay for coffee/chocolate machine e2 - my sister was staying in a different hotel and all that was free, she also had breakfast included in the price. Say that, I preferred hotel Alexander and I would stay there again. Great small hotel, with excellent location.

    Only is that they should have free coffee/chocolate, instead of charging e2 and include a small breakfast - coffee & crossaint, that would be nice,
