My family and I spent 3 nights in the family room of four in Hotel Alexander during May 2012. The hotel was conveniently located near Leidseplein whereby there were plenty of eating/shopping places and tram services. Many places such as Museumplein were accessible by foot. The room was clean and cosy and the surroundings were peaceful and quiet unlike most places in Amsterdam that were rowdy and crowded. As the hotel is a Chinese family-owned place, it definitely made us feel at home when we stepped into the hotel as it's always nice seeing fellow Chinese in a foreign country. What was truly commendable was the service provided by the hotel staff who I suppose are also the owners of this hotel. The staff took the initiative to help us check-in our flight, and was thoughtful to help choose a front flight seat for us that had more leg space.I can say that the excellent service provided by the staff in Hotel Alexander really sets it apart from the other hotels. I will definitely recommended my friends and others to stay in Hotel Alexander when they are in Amsterdam!

My family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed at Hotel Alexander for 3 nights last May 19, 2012. It was a nice hotel with very friendly and helpful reception personnel. Upon check-in, he gave us a map and suggested tourist places for my family.

It was a nice suprise to find an elevator there. We stayed at a family room across the backyard. It was a nice quiet place to rest during the night. The kids liked playing hide-and-seek behind the small bushes in the backyard. It was a relaxing place away from home.

Room was clean.

Hotel was situated nicely. It was walking distance from Leidseplein where we found Burger King and other small restaurants. At Leidseplein, there were frequent tram stops. We bought tram tickets good for 3 days. Each 3-day tram ticket costs around EUR16 (same price for adult or child). The tram tickets can be bought at the Information counter in the Centraal train station or at any tram.

There was also a small supermarket at Damrak beside McDonald's.

I recently spent a long weekend at the Hotel Alexander, staff were very friendly and accommodating, happy to store luggage before check-in/after check-out or give directions. We booked at the last minute, so only available room on the top floor was small (as expected for Amsterdam) but very clean and neat, as was the shower room.

Location is excellent, on a quiet street near the Museumplein, with many restaurants etc within easy walking distance. A taxi from the station was 18 Euro. We did not have the breakfast, so can't comment on quality, but it seemed expensive when there are other options nearby.

My only real negative is that, at this price level, tea/coffee making facilities, free wifi (not just in the lobby) and two pillows per guest is not too much to ask.

I really must get one of the cameras used to take room pictures for hotel ads. Because our room at the Alexander Hotel was one of the dreaded down under rooms and no picture would do it justice. Fortunately, it was ok: clean, roomy, the beds were comfortable, the shower and TV worked and there was hot water. The location was good for everything we wanted to do. The staff was very helpful. But the breakfast? Really? They could do better and should.

Spent a few days at the Hotel Alexander. Great location and a very accommodating staff. They were very helpful and had very good dinner recommendations. Our room overlooked the street and was quite comfortable with a large private bath. Only shortcoming was free wifi was only available in the lobby.

Room Tip: Ask for a large room overlooking the street, worth the extra.
