I think the description provided by the hotel describes it very well. It's a very comfortable charming small hotel. The staff was exceptionally helpful and we greatly enjoyed our stay. We thought our room (Marrakech) was terrific. It is a little distance from the centre of town - 10 minutes by taxi - but not such a problem. Strongly recommended.

Just finished spending 3 nights at the Alexander House after being referred by a friend. Old historic building with modern amenities and a staff to rival the Ritz Carlton. I stayed on the 2nd floor in the Stockholm room and had a beautiful view of the church nearby. The room was spotless, minibar was well stocked and the daily cleaning...
