Overall the hotel wasn't that bad. It definitely wasn't anything fancy, but considering the price you get what you paid for. The service was good, the lady spoke English, Spanish and Italian and was quite helpful. The rooms were small and basic. One bed had springs poking out, which was actually quite dangerous, but the other was fine. The walls... More

We stayed here in Sept. 2014 for the second time in a year. Señora Fiorentini welcomed us back like family. We stayed on the top floor room on the right again with a terrace overlooking the street. We watched our neighbors come and go from school, work and tourists wander. The hotel's easy to get to, close to everything, San... More

I went to Venice for a weekend with my boyfriend, we were just gonna stay one night in Venice, had a low budget, and decided to go to this 1 star hotel (hostel) for 90 Eur /night. I expected little, but we were still surprised upon arrival. The hostel has an excellent location, close to everything 10 min walk. The... More

Hotel Alex has taught me a valuable lesson, .... heed bad reviews! Hotel Alex is filthy, noisy, unkept and bears little resemblance to the photos. The owner is superficially friendly, smiling all the way to the bank, this hotel is mosquito ridden and the one shared shower for two floors of guests was COLD and growing lots of mould. This...

When we first got to the hotel we thought it was rather good. The old lady that owns the place was cute and the hotel was easy to find from the train station. The room was small and the beds were horrible, but for the price we paid we figured it was okey. But then after the first night I... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. Absolutely enjoyed the wonderful service which is the last thing you'd expect in Europe. Velia, the owner, was very attentive to our needs. Breakfast is serve between 8a-9:30a but since we had to leave early for our flight to Paris, we asked if we could have breakfast @ 7:30a. Sure enough, she had our... More

Yes, we can say the quality (as in lumpiness) and antiquity of the pillows was an unpleasant distraction and concern. Maybe you could put some meat into the breakfast, as we had got used to enjoying this part of a European brekkie. On the positive side, the hotel has a lot of character, and the hosts are gracious, and a... More

We chose Hotel Alex because of its proximity to many of the sites around Venice. We were expecting the room to be very ordinary but were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door. The room was more spacious than many higher rated hotels we had stayed in. The private bathroom was adequate and there was more than enough room for... More

As this was our first trip to Venice, Hotel Alex is not easy to find. I finally called and a nice lady met us around the corner and we followed her to the entrance. By then it was getting late and we just wanted a place to rest. She offered us a double (two twins put together) room and shared... More

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
