This is a hard review to write. This little hotel is right in the middle of Venice, in a great location, and one of the cheapest places to stay. The owners are a delight, helpful and kind. Breakfast is good, with pastries, yogurt, and fruit. Bathrooms and bed linens are clean. The downside; the walls in our room had never... More

A lot of the reviews I read seemed to confuse "dirty" with "old". The building is old, the decor is old, but it was actually pretty clean. Our room was tiny, especially the bed, but it did the job. We got upgraded for free to a top floor room with balcony, which was great for added space. The location is... More

Compared to three star hotels, this place is wonderful and a great value for money in Venice where everything is more expensive. The lady who manages the place is extremely helpful and a pleasure to get to know. The room was clean and they accommodates our need for two beds without question. We will definitely stay here again.

The only advange is the location, close to Rialto and nice places Hotel is not well maintained, owner seems to forget than paying that amount of money for such bad quality is not in the respect of tourist. No A/C, basic breakfast, very noisy, equipments are falling appart (like the fan). OK for one night but no more. Tourist trap... More

Lovely hotel. Great hospitality and ina great part of town. Only thing I can complain about was that after a day of walking in 97 degrees, you get back to your room and realize it's just as hot inside.

Ok so, I can accept a range of standards in a hotel having travelled in Asia and other less developed countries. Hotel Alex rates itself as a one star however in line with Venician hotels is priced as a three star. The hotel owner runs the hotel. She is delightful and very welcoming- nothing but praise for her hospitality. The... More

I have just come back from a city break in Venice and stayed at Hotel Alex for two nights, which was pleasant. May I first say how lovely and kind the lady who runs this hotel is. She made my stay here very comfortable and pleasant – and was always willing to answer any questions I had about the city.... More

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

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
