Very angry, as we had to leave this hotel early, the room was so bad, so dirty and so uncomfortable that we had to find another place. It made many problems for our holiday, we had to find somewhere quick, because we just could not spend another night there. Mattress so bad we could not sleep. If you want a...

I stayed at this hotel and loved it! I was fairly apprehensive beforehand, due to it being considerably cheaper than the others and coveting a one star rating, but for anyone on a budget, the location is impossible to beat, its so close to everything! The rooms are very basic, but suited us perfectly, as we were out all day/night...

We were just shocked at the filthy, miserable, grime of this dump. Half things in room broken, mattresses smelly and broken, pillow disgusting, floor filthy, toilet door broken, moldy shower. Sure, you'll save a little money, but you'll sleep in a filthy old bed and it wont' be nice. For just a little more money you can stay in a...

its more of a hostel then a hotel. the only good thing is the location for such a price. besides for that- it was hot, unclean, uncomfortable. and just generally unpleasant. no air conditioning, only a small fan which was broken and sounded like an angry mob, we tried opening the windows but there was no screens and so we...

Hotel's location is fine. The reception lady gave us good impression during our check in. Somehow our room is very small for two person. Which we are fine with it. The fan was broken, they use masking tape to make sure the top and bottom part of the fan stays together. However it creates a horrible noise when the fan...

Having never visited Venice before, and looking for an affordable place to stay - we came across Hotel Alex. If you are looking for a place to rest, in between exploring Venice this little hotel is perfect. The lovely lady who runs the hotel was fab. Although the hotel is basic, it is perfect for a short stay away with...

If you are looking for a classic experience then this is the place. The owner is the kindest person and so sweet. She made us feel right at home. At first I was unsure about this place but the owner has made it for us. We will definitely stay here again. The hotel is older and more like a bed...

The hotel is in the heart of Venice in the San Polo Sestiere. It is in the neighbourhood of the Frari church. Very good location we loved it. The room was very cheap at this time (March 2016). But the whole price is not worth booking in high season. Everything is in very bad condition. The sheets were very clean,...

We have stayed in Hotel Alex just for one night, and since we are young we didn't expect so much comfort. For that type of accomodation, the price is fair. The hotel has everything one person could need + BREAKFAST is a very important reason why we enjoyed the stay. The lady who runs it is a fine person.

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
