Ok so, I can accept a range of standards in a hotel having travelled in Asia and other less developed countries. Hotel Alex rates itself as a one star however in line with Venician hotels is priced as a three star. The hotel owner runs the hotel. She is delightful and very welcoming- nothing but praise for her hospitality.
The rooms are serviced daily and a lovely continental style breakfast included.
The room was for four persons - two adults two children. The room size was adequate in comparison with other European properties however the hotel for the price requires an open mind. While I appreciate old difficult buildings having grown up in a 200 year old house I found that the general maintenance of the rooms to be lacking. It was clean, and shared bathrooms for the most acceptable. However, a number of very very loose tiles on our bedroom floor is sloppy, and asking for feet to be sliced. The general fittings, locks etc don't enhance the feel of antique they just described a lack of every day maintenance. This property needs work or a price shift.
The location is very good and for this reason we chose this property but it is a challenge to swollow the price when I have stayed in properties half the price and twice the quality. The difficulty will always be quad rooms in cities like Venice.
If you have the capacity to pay more it will more likely meet your expectations.
