we visited during the Palio, and siena was really busy, the hotel is lovely, just 10mins walk from piazza del campo, but we felt fine and safe walking from the piazza to the hotel late at night. the rooms are spacious and clean, nothing to complain about, just the wifi service which is limited 30mins free.

We stayed for a night at Hotel Alex on our driving tour through Tuscany. It was easy to find off of the A1, and they had a free parking spot for us. Luckily we had a Fiat Panda, so it could fit into their tiny space! A 10-15 minute walk got us into Piazza Il Campo. The room was clean... More

Hotel Alex is easily accessible by car. We arrived from Rome and had no problem finding the property albeit with a GPS. The gentleman who greeted us directed us to the parking garage beneath the hotel. The parking was 10 e for one night. He thoughtfully offered us a café and drinks for our youngsters, added to the bill. A... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is in a good location to the old cities entry gates. We had a 3 bed room which was large and split level so good for privacy as we were with our teenage son. Our room 107 is next to the road and insection so whilst the weekend the road noise was minimal... More

The hotel was quite nice, very close the the city walls at "Porta Pispini", maybe around 10 minutes away from Piazza del Campo on foot, or if you don't like walking it's 1 minute away from a bus stop that can take you inside Siena. The staff was very nice, breakfast does not offer a lot of variety but It... More

We have just returned from a terrific week long stay in Siena, where we stayed at Hotel Alex. As highlighted by other reviewers the hotel is just outside the city walls near Porta Pispina, no more than a 10 minute wall into the city centre. Our room was kept really clean, with clean sheets & towels every day. A good... More

great location just outside the walls of Siena. Best breakfast with fresh, well made cappucino and hot "cornettos". Luck of the draw with room size. Best, biggest rooms upstairs near reception.

Nice hotel, nice people. We liked the patio with a good view of Tuscan countryside where you can sit, drink wine and enjoy Siena. Also like the garage parking since parking around Siana is a huge pain. Finally, the breakfast was better than most B&Bs.

We were a family of 4. The room was large and the a/c worked well. The room was spotless. The breakfast included was good. We were happy to be able to park our car in a secure parking lot under the hotel. There are many stairs to the hotel and it is outside the walls of Siena. It is a... More
