Hotel Alex - Venice
Hotel Alex is a small, family-run, affordable hotel in Venice, tucked away in the heart of the city's San Polo district. You’ll find plenty of Venice's cultural heritage close by—take a walk west, over the Rio del Frari, and 1 minute later you'll find yourself looking upon the impressive Gothic facade of the Basilica dei Frari. This 14th-century church is home to the tomb of famed Renaissance artist, Titian. Keep walking past the basilica, and you'll soon reach the Scuola Grande di San Rocco. In this famed 16th-century museum, just 4 minutes’ walk from Hotel Alex, you can admire more than 50 paintings by Tintoretto. Head east from the Hotel Alex and, after passing through the Campo San Polo—where the city's annual Carnival festivities are held—you will arrive in the illustrious St Mark's Square. The tower of the Campanile di San Marco and the inspirational St Mark's Basilica lie only 17 minutes on foot from this family-friendly Venice hotel. Around the corner lies the romantic Bridge of Sighs, only 2 minutes' walk from St Mark’s Square. Alternatively, catch a vaporetto water bus from S. Toma' pier, a 4-minute stroll from the hotel, and enjoy cruising down the Grand Canal, watching all of Venice's sights lazily slip past you. For lunch and dinner, there are many affordable restaurants and cafés close by.
On arrival at Hotel Alex, you can relax in the comfortable front lounge while checking in. This charming hotel, situated on a narrow, café-lined street with canals at either end, actually takes up 4 floors of an old townhouse. Guests can enjoy a free breakfast in the first-floor breakfast room or you could choose to have your breakfast delivered to your room. The hotel’s owners are happy to make restaurant recommendations and can also help you organize your itinerary for your stay in Venice. Hotel Alex has free WiFi in all rooms, as well as in public parts of the building.
Previous guests of Hotel Alex praise the owners’ friendliness and helpfulness, with reviewers rating the warm welcome and excellent service highly. The hotel is also commended for its excellent location, close both to the main train station and to many of Venice's most popular sights.
