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

Cosy place, nice decor, Quality Linen. I really enjoyed staying here. Upon check in. we discovered that we were given twin beds. We went down to the reception to change for a room with a large bed. The receptionist changed keys immediately , but for some reason, the new room had a twin beds again? After a beautiful breakfast with... More

Wonderful room. Friendly and helpful staff. Absolutely beautiful breakfasts and dinners. A five minute walk to the train which goes past a good park for the children on it's way to central Florence. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
