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

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
