Lovely staff, owner and his family on site every day, cycling guides seem to be like part of the family. Such a treat to be treated so well as a solo traveler who did very little planning before arriving to an unknown situation.
I would highly recommend this to any and all level of cyclists who enjoy having a home base to avoid having to change hotels every day of a cycling trip, but still have lots of variety of cycling opportunities.
Food was fantastic: lots of seafood, fresh buffet for lunch and dinner and good choice at breakfast. Nice bar for pre/after dinner.
I came for a week of cycling, the package included a very well maintained Bianchi bike and guided tours with a dedicated and motivated tour guide. Also included: washing service for my cycling gear, perfect! Massage can be booked as well which was very good.
All in all, I would like to recommend this place, thank you very much to Cynthia, Camilla, Elvis, Fabrizio … you made me feel welcome, I’ll be back!!
I receptionen möts man av glada och trevliga engelsktalande medarbetare. Franska och tyska fungera också.
I hotellets restaurang (den riktiga) praktiserar man det italienska köket fullt ut. Väldigt gott och ett rikt utbud som serveras av en snabb och uppmärksam personal, allt från il Gerente till kypare.
Rummen är rena och fina med bra garderober och ett rymligt duschrum.
Vi cyklade semiprofessionellt under två dagar under ledning av en grym guide.
Att vi fick se adriatiska havet och fantastiska vyer från ovan under dessa två dagar ackompanjerade av muskelvärk och ständig häftig andning kan ni skriva upp!!!
Our bicycle group spent two weeks with Roberto, family and staff. Came as guests, left as family.
Great hotel with excellent service and food with outstanding hospitality.
I have been visiting hotel Alexander since 8 years approximatelly 2 weeks in summer. Me and my family always feel comfortable there. Hotel staff is always friendly. Cuisine is extremally delicious. Hotel is bikers friendly and there is several tracks around. You can also review my previous comments about the hotel on Tripadvisor. I hope to be back there next year….
It was my 2nd stay at Hotel Alexander, again mainly to have a cycling vacation. The area is great for splendid cycling trips, with beautiful cities as Urbino or San Marino less than 40 km away. Although you stay at the Adriatic coast you can go for trips with lots of climbing. Returning to the hotel you can enjoy a fantastic meal adapted to the needs of cyclists. Add the kindness of the staff and you can’t wish for more.
To our fellow U.S. citizens: This is the kind of service and amenity only to be found in a family owned and operated hotel. The Marche and this hotel are the Italy you only find away from the larger tourist towns. Goditi la vita a Hotel Alexander!
På detta hotell är allt rent och fräscht. Maten gudomligt god!! Man blir omtänksamt ompysslad på alla sätt. Och vilken personal, de gör allt för din trivsel. Jag har varit “non cyklist” och maken har cyklat med hotellets cykelguider. Det finns inte ett bättre ställe om du vill åka på en aktiv semester. Du kan cykla racer eller mountainbike, de har el-cyklar också. Om du är där för att cykla, som maken, kan du hyra cykel och då får du skicka ner dina mått så du får rätt storlek på din hyrcykel. Till racer och mountainbike ska du ta med dina egna pedaler och cykelskor + hjälm så klart. Varje dag efter cykelturen stoppar du dina svettiga cykelkläder i en tvättpåse och morgonen efter får du rena nytvättade cykelkläder tillbaka. Det är service som ingår i paketet ! Om man som jag inte cyklar kan man bada promenera och bara njuta av tillvaron och de vackra omgivningarna. Och så var det maten: frukost , lunch och middag. Det finns bara inte ord att beskriva så mycket gott ! De allra flesta gästerna har gått upp i vikt även om det cyklat i den allra tuffaste gruppen. Det finns inget att bli besviken på! Gäster från hela europa , cykelklubbar , par, barnfamiljer och alla umgås och trivs.

Roberto ,Cinzia and Camilla made us fill like at home.their hospitality was excellent. The staff made everything to make our staying wonderful. We enjoyed the food in the hotel so much we didn’t go to any restaurant. We highly recommend the hotel and sure will come again! Elisha cohen&tohar
Roberto, Cinzia and Camilla: what a wonderful hotel and how good are you at making sure everything was just perfect. My travelling companion needed gluten free meals and your staff were simply outstanding in accommodations her needs. The friendly atmosphere was as good as I’ve ever experienced in a hotel and the cycling each morning was superb. And fancy having Tour de France mountain climb winner, Claudio Chiapucci as one of our cycling guides! He along with Chris and Georgio were great to be with and I learnt so much from them. Our rooms were spotless and comfortable, all meals were brilliant, the pool area was a great place to relax after a hard ride and the staff were fantastic. Thank you for just the best holiday.
What can I say about this hotel? It affords you a holiday not to be missed. I love everything about it. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. The food is to die for and the service from the very friendly staff is warm; nothing is a problem. Roberto and his family are always around and are constantly asking if all is well. There is a lovely pool area and entertainment if you should wish. All meals are beautifully served by spotlessly dressed staff and the food is always fresh and inviting.
I have to tell you that I am the fussiest person when it comes to eating out and accommodation. I drive my husband crazy as I am rarely happy so he is over the moon that he has found me the perfect spot for our holidays.
I just can’t wait to book up for next year. It will definitely be an annual trip for me.
We were on holiday here in June 2015 for the third time and once again the holiday was fantastic due to Roberto and family and the wonderful team he has around him. The hotel is immaculate in every detail. Spotlessly clean, amazing service, beautiful rooms (with a view), and a wonderful restaurant serving delicious food. Nothing is a problem for the staff and they make you most welcome. We have recommended this hotel to others and nobody has been disappointed. The hotel is in a quiet part of Gabicce and overlooks the sea. The hotel grounds and pool are in first class condition and you also get your own parking place included in the price of your holiday. We are definitely booking again for next year as you cannot get too much of a good thing!!!
We are a couple with two friends (seniors) and we stayed 8 nights H/b in June. We have been to Gabicce many times but this was our first experience of the Hotel Alexander. We were very pleased with every aspect of or holiday .What impressed us most was the very warm welcome from the owners, the quality of the food and the relaxed atmosphere. We can certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for friendliness and good service from all the staff. We wish to say thank you to the owners and we hope to return for our next Italian holiday.
Just spent a lovely time in Gabicce Mare,Italy (on the Adriatic). If you’re looking for a beach vacation, this place was incredible. They even loaned us their golf cart so we could drive our daughter around (she’s in a walking boot for an injured ankle). Truly superb staff, amazing food & they made everyone feel like family! Great location with lovely views.
