While Hotel Alex gets a 5 star rating for location, it's not the greatest B&B for comfort. Located in the San Polo region of Venice, it's a short walk to the Grand Canal, many shops and restaurants, but then again, most of Venice is that way. No matter where you stay, all areas of the small city of Venice can be reached easily on foot. The hospitality at Hotel Alex was ok, but the owners were not there much. The morning continental breakfast was less than adequate...though there is a nice, little general store right across the sidewalk that we used to supplement our breakfasts each morning. Our room, though quite large, lacked hot water, soap, and clean soft towels. The towels were "hard" and gave my daughter a facial rash. The toilet area, and the single, shower room were shared between 4 guestrooms. I found it inconvenient. While the bed was comfortable, I could expect to be awoken at 3am each morning by the loud crowd leaving the local bars nearby. The price was definitely right, but not worth the inconvenience...If you are looking for a good location at a good price, Hotel Alex is for you; otherwise, look elsewhere.
