This hotel was perfect for what we wanted. It is clean and friendly and not far from the airport and Venice. We had absolutely no problems staying. The receptionist, bar staff and restaurant staff have all been very helpful in helping us with things like directions, maps, buses, breakfast and restaurant times to prompt service in the bar area.

Stayed for a couple of nights in April and used this hotel as a base to visit Venice. It's ideally located and takes about 10-15 minutes to travel into Venice bus station (use bus no 12 which is a short walk through a couple of streets). The buses tend to be very packed typically like the London Tube in rush... More

Booked through BA. Got a lovely superior room, recently refurbished. Clean, laminate floor, vg bathroom. It's quiet and comfortable. Look, you don't come all this way for a full English breakfast. There's plenty of choice to fill yourself up. Turn right out of hotel door for bus 15 to airport, turn left out of the door and cut through the... More

There were clearly some renovations going on whilst we stayed there. Could hear drills at around 9AM (not that this fussed us as we were already up) and the whole lobby was covered in dust sheets on our final day due to decorators being in. That, admittedly, was a right pain because our flight didn't go until 10.20pm and when... More

We booked a cheap holiday to Venice and this is the hotel we stayed in, after reading the reviews on trip advisor we were a bit scared but actually was ok ! room was ok, breakfast wasn't fantastic, standard continental breakfast but not worth getting up for tbh. The no12 bus behind the hotel on the main road took you... More

I chose this hotel from the British Airways web site which was based on how far it was from the Airport, how far it was from the centre of Venice and the hotel grade. I agree totally with other contributors that this is NOT a four star hotel. The hotel was covered in scaffolding and renovation work was in progress.... More

All I can say is that our stay was near perfect. The Alexander is smart, comfortable and friendly. It's less than 15 minutes away from Venice by convenient local bus and our proferred 10 Euro note for our fare was waved away by the driver. It doesn't provide evening meals but just around the corner are several restaurants and a... More

First of all, don't be mislead about the location of the hotel. It is in Mestre Venice, not in Venice itself. When we arrived at the hotel, we were very surprised seeing the appearance of the hotel as it looked not like a hotel :-( Especially when we were told that this was a four stars hotel. Most likely it... More

For a four star hotel it's very cheap - but you get what you pay for. It's a plain hotel, the lobby is boring, the rooms are very small, but the staff are very friendly and helpful. They don't have a swimming pool, and that was a bit of a disappointment since it's a 4 star hotel.The hotel is in... More
