Disappointing stay.
We stayed in room 2, a family room of 1 x double and 2 x single beds. Beds comfortable enough, although the sheets etc were clean, they did smell strongly of washing powder? An issue with the main curtain is that it did not close in the middle and the resulting 6" gap provided enough light to almost illuminate the room via the streetlamp directly outside. The bathroom although clean did not have a plug for the hand basin which meant running water whilst having a shave and one of the handles to the shower has the appearance and feel of being badly corroded so suggest this needs to be replaced. So why not complain well - my biggest issue is with the parking so the required number to discuss was called (and message left with name and phone number) and here 2 days later, still no response. My belief from the description given re parking was there would be parking close to the hotel which is on a main road. Whilst I missed the online text indicating parking was based on fitting in with local residents, I did not expect either to have to park so far away or to have to move my car before 09.00. (can park between 18.00 and 08.00 then for 1 hour no return for 2 hours meaning leave by 09.00). There seems to be no provision at all to park on site. Altogether a disappointing stay although with some tweaks many issues could be corrected.

What a hell!
When the room door was opened, what a terrible picture! There was a rubbish bin right in the middle of the room, the naked mattress has neither quilt and nor sheet or bed cover. The cup was placed by the sink, the kettle was up next to the window with its leads dropping to the floor, a broken part was on the floor as well. Dirty with bad smell! When contacted the telephone number several times, a replacement was given in a basement room without window, which is hard to breath during the hot summer night. Later, about 21:30, a room in another location was given, and a taxi has to be used to go there. That is the experience of the Alexander!
