Rooms are very clean, just the shower is too small and the hot water can be very hot. We can ear water running from other rooms at any time. Breakfast is not huge but enough to start the day. There is a Tram 5 mts. away which takes you to downtown. The reception is really the best Service you can...

Hotel out of ZTL is our concern in Italy since we were on a road trip. The location is not good as it is not close to any of the Florence main tourist attraction but take a 10 mins walk to the tram station 'Federiga' and you could reach the city center in 15 mins. Moreover, they provide a free...

So much noise inside and outside, too. It's impossible to relax there. Breakfast: poor but ok just to have a start for the day. Good point: Close to the center: 7 tram stations (15 min). Clean hotel, but not modern.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Alex for two nights and were pleased with our time there.

Third, the room was clean and spacious. The only...

Hotel Alex is an affordable hotel option for anyone spending their days touring the area. It is close to direct transportation into the city centre. The breakfasts were standard European buffet (in a good way) using the restaurant next door as a lovely setting to eat. Coffee is served by a waitress. Dinner at the hotel was quite good as...

Cosy place, nice decor, Quality Linen. I really enjoyed staying here. Upon check in. we discovered that we were given twin beds. We went down to the reception to change for a room with a large bed. The receptionist changed keys immediately , but for some reason, the new room had a twin beds again? After a beautiful breakfast with...

Wonderful room. Friendly and helpful staff. Absolutely beautiful breakfasts and dinners. A five minute walk to the train which goes past a good park for the children on it's way to central Florence. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Looks a bit shocking from the outside and its far away from town BUT......they is a tram nearby which brings you straight in town and the hotel inside was lovely typical Italian style I even got some inspiration how to create my own...

“There is a lift but it was out of order one day, not a problem for us but could be for an older couple or those with walking difficulties.”

“The hotel is at the road side and we had a room at the front which is quite noisy so try to get the other side which we supposed will be a lot quieter. The lift is extremely small! Beware of your big luggage!”
