Good location between the train station and the Rialto, around the corner from the Frari Church [worth a visit]. Clean simple rooms with and without bath. Friendly owners. No elevator but for those willing to take the stairs, some rooms come with a terrace overlooking the street. Small grocery store/deli across the street for self caterers. Continental breakfast included. Off... More

I stayed at hotel Alex for only one day but had a great experience and would definitely go back. It is situated at a great location, near the rialto bridge and piazza S .Marco. It is at a walking distance from the train station so the use of the expensive vaporetto is not needed to get to the hotel as... More

I will start with the few positives; the breakfast was great (rolls, croissants, yoghurt, and tea/coffee/hot chocolate), and the lady running it was very friendly. Unfortunately the negatives well and truly outweighed the positives. Our room had bedbugs, the shower is absolutely tiny and had a lot of mould in it. We also had an issue with the key once... More

Hotel Alex has many positives - a nice location that is walkable to/from anywhere in Venice, including the train station and San Marco; a manager that is knowledgeable and very helpful (she can seem a little formal at first, but she is actually very warm and friendly); a free breakfast (yogurt, a croissant, rolls, and coffee or hot chocolate); some...

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Hotel Alex, the perfect location to see Venice. The bonus is Señora Fiorentini, the owner...she is gracious, kind and helpful...a nonna away from home. Our room was on the 3rd floor with a terrace....perfect! We used it every morning and every night. We loved overlooking the street and watching the early... More

Fairly Spartan but a good location right in the heart of Venice. The elderly proprietor is very welcoming and friendly. The hotel hasn't been updated in decades but it does have a certain charm. No air-con as you might guess but a large electric fan is provided. Because of the old style windows and shutters the passing tourists/locals can be... More

We recently stayed at Hotel Alex and would stay here again. The lady was very welcoming and like a nonna :) the only fault was no air conditioning which made it a little uncomfortable sleeping, but not uncommon for Europe. We opened the window but got bitten alive by Mosquitos lol. Otherwise a great cozy place and would recommend staying... More

My dad had recommended this hotel as he had stayed here once while travelling through Italy. W booked the hotel the night before we were flying out to Venice due to issues with Expedia and our other booking. We got the slightly before check-in but the lady was very welcoming and explained that the room we were in was quite... More

Stayed here with 3 friends recently & found the hotel to be fairly basic but in a great location in central Venice. It's well placed for all the main sights & only 10 minutes walk away from the Rialto Bridge. The rooms are a decent size & the one my two friends had on the 3rd floor did have a... More

The hotel is very central. It is very clean, the bathroom is new made and the lady is very very nice. But the breakfast ist small. The croissons are very fine, you get jogurt also, but there is no sausages and no cheese, no fullcorn bread...the rooms upstairs have all a problem with the wet rain coming from the roof.... More
