Hotel Alex
Ranked #321 of 384 Hotels in Venice
Reviewed 27 April 2013

The hotel is very central. It is very clean, the bathroom is new made and the lady is very very nice. But the breakfast ist small. The croissons are very fine, you get jogurt also, but there is no sausages and no cheese, no fullcorn bread...the rooms upstairs have all a problem with the wet rain coming from the roof. The walls are wet and green. The people try to clean it but, so just ask, they will wash the wall for you. They are realy friendly, but much too expansive.

Room Tip: The rooms downstairs are dry.

Hotel Alex is a small well located hotel in the mid of Venice, thankfully some distance away from the very loud touristy locations. Though everything is walking distance from Alex, it's still possible to have a good night's sleep. We liked the hotel because of it's antique charm, and not to mention a very sweet hostess. We had a room overlooking the street and it's nice to just stand there and see life go by. There is a great supermarket just opposite the hotel and you can buy your supplies from there. Alex serves breakfast, which is simple but sufficient. Overall I recommend Alex for people looking to stay in a simple well located place a small walk away from loud over touristy locations.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the street.

We enjoyed the three nights we spent at Hotel Alex. The hotel is well located, the rooms are charming and the owner is very, very kind. Everything is very clean as well.

As other reviews mention, you do certainly hear street noise. Since it's winter we had our windows closed the entire time, and still could hear people outside on the street passing by. But, really it wasn't bad - and, I think you'd be hard pressed to find a place in Venice without any people walking by and very thick walls to keep the noise out (particularly, in a budget place). Bottom line, the buildings are old and the walls are rather thin.

We found this to be much better than expected - really, a very nice place to stay while exploring the lovely, lovely city of Venice!

Great location but very expenive but it is Venice! Large room but don't expect to sleep well with all that noise outside. The shared bathroom has no bathmatt so there is always water all over the floor, and no where as such to hang clothes etc.The towels supplied are no larger than tea towels which lead to a few funny moments. The shared shower wasn't that clean either and no where do they supply soap. Breakfast was nice.

This hotel is charming and very good value considering the price of other hotels in the area. It is in a very good and quiet location but only an ten minute walk to the train station and St Marks square. The only downside would be the lack of air conditioning but the rooms have a standing fan and we still got a good nights sleep. We didn't really notice the mosquios. We both agree we would definately stay here again if in the area. Breakfast was delicious- coffee, coissants, bread and yogart.

We (family of 8) stayed in Hotel Alex for one night prior to our cruise. They were able to accommodate us in 2 rooms with 4 people in each room with private baths. The rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast was simple and fresh. In addition to rolls, jam, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, there was yogurt, milk and cereal.
We thought it was a perfect location! It was just a short 10-15 min walk from Plaza Roma to the Hotel. Our flights from the US. were early AM and they had our rooms ready so we could drop our bags and start exploring immediately. It was a short walk to Rialto bridge right along the Rich Steves walking tour.
On the next day, when we checked out, they watched our bags so we could explore more prior to our cruise. Again it was a short walk with our bags to the People Mover station to our ship. The grocery store right across the street was great for last minute supplies and drinks / snacks for walking.
The price was very reasonable compared to other places we investigated especially considering there was an annual event in town. The staff was very pleasant, helpful - spoke English well.
Our only complaint was the noise at night. I think there was a restaurant across the street and people were out late at night talking. We closed the windows but could still hear noise. Ear plugs solved the problem.
We were fine in late May with no air conditioning -- but you might want to consider this if you are planning to stay in August.
We would stay in this hotel again. It's a great value and excellent location. A little quaint gem.

Room Tip: No elevator so ask for lower floors if you have large bags. We just had carry-on, so we were ok. Br...
