Hotel Alex isn't particularly personal, but offers very good value for money with clean and spacious rooms, very good location and nice staff (although not all of them speak very good English). The breakfast is ok _by Italian standards_.

Good location, own garage in the basement with a "bit complicated entry" and navigation. Rooms spatious, clean ... not really charming but ... Breakfast not really special but OK. Staff helpful, some speak English, some really do not.

Being fairly seasoned European travelers, the Hotel Alex didn't stand out as particularly better or worse than any other place we've stayed. When we arrived a very friendly, fluent English speaking woman helped us with parking and carrying up our bags. Not all the staff speak English, but the front desk staff seem too. The room was large, and very... More

We stayed here recently and would recommend this hotel - the rooms are comfortable and the owners ensured we could check in early as we planned to arrive before the standard check-in time. The hotel is in a good location (a 2 minute walk to Porta Pispini which takes you in to the 'old' walled city - and then a... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at Hotel Alex. Seriously not even good for just a place to sleep at night. The hotel staff were unfriendly (didn't even acknowledge us coming and going), there are 25 stairs to get to the main entrance and no one helps you with luggage, hotel has a bad sewage smell, rooms are clean, but very,...

This hotel is just outside one of the main doors of Siena. Great location - near one of the best pasticcerias in Siena and near bus drop off point. Well known and been there for many years. Good breakfast, clean and quiet rooms, small bathroom, but very good value for an expensive city.

Great location, great front desk staff (Jasmine), great room, good breakfast, good rate. Not too much to complain about here. It was a little chilly, but per Siena law heat cannot be turned on until November 1st. So, we added a blanket and relied on body heat. Parking underground at the hotel was convenient and the surroundings are beautiful. A... More

We stayed there for just one night during our 3 week long European vacation. We found this hotel as we drove by it, and they had a family room available for a reasonable price. The front side of the hotel simply faced the street, but we found the backside of the hotel had a beautiful view of the Tuscany hill.... More

My daughter just completed a semster studying in Siena and I took my son and parents to Italy to pick her up and visit the country for two weeks. Hotel Alex was great, very friendly staff, clean and a good location. For those who have never traveled to Siena before it's very difficult to find some of the hotels "within... More
