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

There is noise from above and the corridor which we weren't expecting, although we didn't have traffic or pedestrian noise as we had a room at the back.The hotel is situated close to a tram station which makes travelling into...

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.

We stayed here Oct 2013. Great location just outside of the city center. A short walk to the tram that takes you into Florence(10min ride). The room and the bathroom were very clean. The breakfast was very good. A secure parking space with a small charge. We would definately stay here again.

I was there with my wife and one baby. The Hotel is far from the touristic spots, but there's a tram direct to there. The Hotel is very informal. This is good, but can disappoint if you wait professionalism. I mean, the staff has good intentions, but they had no training. No doubts about that. We made a reservation for... More

This hotel is out of town but is just 5 mins walk to the local tram stop - which will get you into Florence in about 15 mins. I wish we'd eaten dinner at the adjoining restaurant as it looked great (and the breakfast buffet we ate there was very above average).
