“Wonderful welcome and far better than its three stars”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

We only stayed here for one night as we were travelling from Tuscany to the South of France and SanRemo is about half way. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel, which is far better than its three stars. The rooms were spotlessly clean, recently renovated and well-appointed. The garden and breakfast were excellent and the space in the garden was a delight in what is a very tightly-packed town. We had a family room and there was plenty of space for a hotel room for four of us.
However, the best aspect of this hotel was the welcoming atmosphere and the attitude of the staff who couldn't do enough to help. We were offered complimentary drinks and nibbles in the garden after we arrived and were provided with tea and coffee in our room after we returned from our dinner, all free of charge. It was also excellent that we could park on-site with one staff member moving her own car so that ours could fit in easily and not be moved until the following morning.
In short, an excellent hotel with marvellous, helpful, friendly staff.

Alexander hotel is the perfect stay weather you chose to stay one night or a whole week. Personal I stayed 6 nights there. The staff there was extremely welcoming. As soon as we got there we were offered a drink(coffee or juice), which was needed after a long trip. The room was quite big i'd say and very very clean(laundry changed every day). The garden instead was something amazing and the breakfast(included in the price) taken in the garden: priceless. The location was great(100 m to the main square). As i said in the main title: perfect stay.

There is nothing new and modern about this hotel and that is a good thing! Rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. Perfect for a beach holiday, since we spent so little time in the room. The hotel has a large garden where breakfast is served, but we often had evening drinks there as well, using it as our living room! The staff could not have been nicer, it seemed like a family run hotel. They accommodated every request. We rode the bikes every day and then easily walked to the more distant, better beaches of west San Remo. The central location also allowed us to walk to all the restaurants, wine bars and clubs. Once we parked the car we never needed it again. This is a great value with a very good breakfast coming with the price of the room. We were 4 friends and stayed in one "family" room, which was a little cramped, but we appreciated the savings. Good AC.

Room Tip: The walls are a little thin, so try to get an end room.

The staff are very welcoming. Shown room and facilities.
3 star hotel. Immaculately clean, nice bedding. We were in the annex, not the main building.
Very quiet for sleeping.
Room small but adequate. We only stayed one night.
Breakfast included in the rate. We needed to catch an early train and although the breakfast is not generally available until 7 a.m., the staff were very obliging in allowing us to eat earlier. This was in the garden. So lovely being outside early in the morning.
If staying in San Remo, so close to all restaurants.

The Hotel Alexander is a very standard three star hotel in an older stand-alone building that you can find just about anywhere in Italy. The rooms are basic and haven't been renovated in some time; the keys to the rooms are old fashioned metal things with teeth, that are attached to heavy brass plaques with the hotel's name; none of this new-fangled plastic entry card system here.

What causes me to give the Alexander the extra point is a variety of things. First, it is pretty well situated, being a 5 minute walk from the center of town. Second, they have on-site parking (for an extra 10 euros), a godsend in a country with 5 cars for every parking spot. Third, the staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful. Fourth, the room was clean and everything in the bathroom worked as it should. Fifth, free breakfast; nothing to write home about, but free is free.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Sanremo and would happily go back to the Alexander if we were ever to find ourselves in this part of the world again.

Great staff, extremely helpful, nothing too much trouble for them. Very good value for money. Very clean rooms.Great to have private parking. It may not be a 5 star hotel but the service is 5 star. We have stayed at this hotel for the last 3 years and enjoyed our stay every time.

Room Tip: Just ask the staff and tell them what you need!
