4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

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 get, they will give you all the support you need, even if you need directions or any information about hospitals or places by phone, open 24H.
If you only need a place to sleep and spend the rest of the day out, this is the right place.
For this i recommend Hotel Alex.

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 private parking and there is a hypermarket behind the hotel which is really convenient.
The hotel personnel is friendly and helpful. Room is extremely big, comfortable and clean. We had a dinner back in the restaurant, it is quite good and we really appreciated the chef in providing us some recommendation regarding on the food and the wine. Breakfast was included but it was rather light without much choices so we did not really enjoy.
Overall, we do love the hotel! Really love the room and the staffs!

Room Tip: The hotel is at the road side and we had a room at the front which is quite noisy so try to get the...

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 downside was that there was no safe and refrigerator in the room. We also really enjoyed the breakfast. I would stay at this hotel again.

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 well (it really is the only option in the area to eat, but was quite tasty). AC was a little noisy, but helped drown out the street noise. The area is not overly appealing, but like I said, easy access to what you are there to see. Parking is extra, but in a securely gated lot.

We stayed here for two nights ,the room was comfortable, larger than expected with a tdecent sized bathroom and shower. 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 city easy( only 10 minutes) getting off at the last stop which is the railway station and is close to the Duomo.There is a nice restaurant attached to the hotel ,which is good, however this is is the only place we could find to eat at despite walking for quite awhile in every direction looking for elsewhere.There is parking available but make sure you reserve a spot. This is a pleasant place to stay after exploring Florence
