This Hotel has an excellent location, about 15 min from Florence's train station using public transportation. Great breakfast and guest service workers are nice. It also has a parking, just in case you have a vehicle. My room had AC so i guess all the rooms have it.

Our first room was small with a very small bathroom and it smelled really, really bad. As if someone has smoked cigarettes in that room for 20 years. After complaining about this we got a nice room with a larger bathroom. The airco could only be switched on via the fuse box, so the room was either cold or hot,... More

Hotel near the tram stop "federiga", in 10 mins you are at Santa Maria Novella Station. The room was very clean and large enough. Even if the room faced the street it is not noisy, we slept without problems. Matress is ok. Nice staff and breakfast is OK for the price paid. I would advise to stay here for a... More

Rooms are very clean, just the shower is too small and the hot water can be very hot. We can ear water running from other rooms at any time. Breakfast is not huge but enough to start the day. There is a Tram 5 mts. away which takes you to downtown. The reception is really the best Service you can... More

Hotel out of ZTL is our concern in Italy since we were on a road trip. The location is not good as it is not close to any of the Florence main tourist attraction but take a 10 mins walk to the tram station 'Federiga' and you could reach the city center in 15 mins. Moreover, they provide a free... More

So much noise inside and outside, too. It's impossible to relax there. Breakfast: poor but ok just to have a start for the day. Good point: Close to the center: 7 tram stations (15 min). Clean hotel, but not modern.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Alex for two nights and were pleased with our time there. First if all, the historic city center of Florence is easily accessible via tram, which has a stop right down the street from the hotel. Secondly, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Third, the room was clean and spacious. The only... More

Hotel Alex is an affordable hotel option for anyone spending their days touring the area. It is close to direct transportation into the city centre. The breakfasts were standard European buffet (in a good way) using the restaurant next door as a lovely setting to eat. Coffee is served by a waitress. Dinner at the hotel was quite good as... More
