We stayed at the Alexander for New Year, it's only a short distance from the airport, first impressions the hotel is opposite a canal and marina area and looks quite nice, check in was a bit hurried as the man on reception was dealing with us whilst taking a phone call, there is a smokey smell in the reception area...

I spent 3 nights here and I can say that this hotel's top feature is without a doubt its position. Located in Forte Marghera, it's very convenient for tourists who planned a visit of beautiful Venice. A few steps from the hotel you can find the tram stop. It takes just 15min to get to Venice: a reasonable time. The... More

Everything was fantastic. The crew was very kind, the food was excelent and the room was very clean. We had a little problem with paying, but in the end everything was fine. I recomand to pay with cash. I love it and i can't wait to return here.

Room is small but this is a detail in regard to position and connection to Venice. Bus station for Venice is very close to the hotel. The breakfast is good. Parking place available for cour car in front of the hotel.

This Hotel has been refurbished in one half but still old and tired in the other. We stayed for 1 night in the older part and then 2 nights in the newer, refurbished part. The refurbished rooms are very modern with all mod. Cons and are definitely worth asking for if staying here. We had no problems getting to Venice... More

Traveled with a group of 57 people and this hotel is clearly not a 4 star quality hotel. My single room was situated in the older part of the hotel that has not been renovated. I don't mind single person hotel rooms being small but this did not meet my expectations. The bathroom was the worst part, when you flushed... More

Stayed at the Alexander for three nights and the location was ideal away from the crowded city and just 10 minutes tram ride into the mainland. So glad we did not stay inside the city as it was extremely busy. Hotel was comfortable and offered a very varied breakfast

Hotel Alexander is just on the outskirts of Venice, a very nice place to stay, very near the old city. There are lots of restaurants near the hotel, and the hotel has a nice restaurant itself. The service was great, the people working in the hotel are very kind and helpful. I had a very pleasant stay there.

Modest price, comfortable, decent breakfast included, free car parking off street, 12 min bus ride to Venice, buses every 12 min, bus stop 5 min walk, decent authentic restaurant 2 min walk....what's not to like. Get a 20E day ticket from the local tobacconist, to cover all buses and vaporettos...jump on and off, use the water bus to sightsee, go... More
