The Alex hotel is conveniently located close to the University and to the center. It is nicely decorated and very practical. The staff is very nice and helpful. The room we got was very small. Still it was a pleasant space, with surfaces to leave stuff and a closet. A bottle of water and some apples available (really nice touch).... More

We stayed in The Alex Hotel for 3 nights in Oct. We were a family of 3 and were thankful that we booked 2 rooms. The rooms are so small that there is hardly room for luggage, not to say another bed. Nevertheless, the rooms are clean, well maintained, and the breakfast was sumptuous with a good spread of cold... More

We enjoyed our stay at The Alex. We had inter-connecting rooms which was very convenient with young children. Rooms are quite small; but well presented and the breakfast was very nice. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful and hotel is only a short walk into old town centre.

A small compact hotel which is comfortable and have everything you need and the staffs are friendly; the Breakfast is standard. The garage is not that big and if there already have few cars parked, you will be in serious trouble if you are a experienced driver.

Ideal for a short trip or on business. Rooms are compact but have everything you need. Clever use of space. Good bathroom. Free WiFi and nice to see spare sockets which were accessible for charging phones etc. Overall would use again.
