Nice apartment. Spacious and clean. Had almost everything except for fridge and Iron. However ironing facility was provided on request without charges in no time.

This hotel is real value for money. It's located near many of the sights visitors will want to see and the rooms are not a lot less in quality than what you'd get at the best hotels but for a lot less the price. We loved the funky retromodern decor too...

A perfect value for money Hotel. It is more close to a boutique hotel. The staff were very welcoming, the breakfast was perfect, the Wi-Fi was excellent. Reaching the hotel location by using GPS, in seconds. I highly recommend Alexander The Great Hotel.
