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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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,... More

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.

This hotel is in the middle of very typical homes in venice, everything is beautiful and you fell just like in a romantic movie. The room was very old, but clean and classical. It is almost like a hostel, in terms of bathroom. The breakfast is very good. The owners are really kind and very helpful. It seems to have... More

The hotel was just in the center of Venice so it was a good value for money. The building is old but that should satisfy those who spend most of the time exploring Venice and not staying in the hotel room. The service was excellent.

This is a hard review to write. This little hotel is right in the middle of Venice, in a great location, and one of the cheapest places to stay. The owners are a delight, helpful and kind. Breakfast is good, with pastries, yogurt, and fruit. Bathrooms and bed linens are clean. The downside; the walls in our room had never... More

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.
