We had a wonderful time staying in alexander hotel, we enjoyed space in the room (a room for three) and loved the pleasant hotel garden that our room was located next to. In addition, the hotel was clean, peaceful and quiet, the staff was kind and friendly, and the location of the hotel was very good, near von del park and the center.

Awesome staff that is ready to help you with any question. 5 minutes walk to a direct bus to Schiphol. There was a good surprise. I've given an absolutely free phone for local calls and internet. However, the breakfast could be a bit better if there was an omelete with bacon.

First the positives...hotel is very well located on a quiet side street near the Museumplein and Vondelpark. It is also located fairly close to several tram routes and a bus line. There is a bus (#397) a short walk away that is a quick trip to Schiphol. Overall the hotel seemed clean. The hotel staff (especially the owners? who were there during the day) were quite helpful and aided in our planning as we traveled around Amsterdam. There are restaurants nearby. Breakfast is available if you give advance notice. That is an additional charge.

Now for the negatives...the hotel could use some updating overall. The bathroom, although clean and I suppose that is what is most important, frustrated me. It was small and there was no place to put anything. Women sometimes have a lot of bath, makeup products, etc. There was nowhere in the shower to place shampoo bottles, etc. And limited space over/around the bathroom sink to place anything. Even an additional shelf and hook would have helped. The towels were really thin and rough. The hair dryer worked but only if I held the On button down the entire time I was using it. Also, there is an elevator but it stops between floors where rooms are located so that you will have to navigate 6-7 steps to reach your room even when using the elevator. That may be an issue for some. Just be aware.

Room Tip: There was a room (#6 ?) that is located on the hallway where everyone else must past to reach their rooms on the street side. Try to avoid.

This hotel was a good choice for those who want to be close enough to the act9but still removed from it.

Pros,
Great location. Just outside leidsplein stop on the tram. Lots of bars and restaurants/shopping close by. Close proximity to vondelpark and the museumsplein. All a short walk away.

Staff. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They have a come/go policy that wasn't restrictive and someone on the reception 24 hours.

Amenities. There was a garden that had seating, this was also partially covered which help during inclement weather. There is a vending machine in the lobby for sweets, choc, water, coke. There is also free coffee and hot cjoc from a machine which you can use as much as you want to.

The cons.
Rooms are small but tall. The decor is dated and feels a little bit faulty towers.
Noise! We stayed in a front facing room and the noise from the street was horrendous. There was road works involving angle grinders and mallets that started at 8am this made any chance of a lie on at all go out the window. It was like it was in the room with us! We could also hear every neighboring room chatting.

The beds, this is a difficult one, because it was a con for me because I hate memory foam and the pillows and mattress were memory foam. Might suit someone else just not me!

Overall we had a lovely experience in Amsterdam and would love to recommend the city
