Before arrival: The staff do not speak English, except for one girl who is a student, whose English is passable. After I had passed my credit card details to them, they did not give me any confirmation. I repeatedly asked, but it was very difficult to obtain this information from them. I would have cancelled this booking due to this...

We stayed at the Alex on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews. It's probably about the only time that we've felt let down. The main reason for our disappointment was the location of the hotel. It is at least a 15 minute walk from the magnificent Campo and probably 25 from the bus stop. The pictures on the hotel's website...

I recently stayed with my entire family (7 adults) at the Hotel Alex and can't wait to return. While I do speak Italian and could avoid possible difficulties with the limited english, I believe the owners would have bent over backwards to help anyway. They were an amazingly fun and friendly family! They offered great recommendations for food and things...

We enjoyed the Hotel Alex. We found it to be a reasonably affordable hotel (90 euros) that wasn't too far from the city center. The hotel is located on a busy intersection just outside the main city gate at Porta Pispini. We took the bus from the train station, but I regretted not taking a taxi. It was only a...

Hotel Alex is about a block outside of Porta Pispini, a short walk into the town and the Piazza del Campo. The room I had was on the main floor, right down from the reception desk and was very spacious. Room had a balcony shared with a couple other rooms. The balcony faced a busy street and traffic but patio...

We stayed at theHotel Alex for two nights in early October 2007. While we found it to be "OK" but we had some of the same concerns as a previous writer. Our room was on the first floor on the street/sidewalk side of the building. Windows were sound proof but the air conditioner control could not be found by us...

We stayed there for 3 nights and found it to be okay but the rooms could use some updating. Also even though it is close to the city walls we found the location to be a bit out of the way. we had problems with our room ( # 102) as we were next to the laundry room and we...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our holiday. Although on a busy junction, this small hotel is in a good location – only 10 minutes walk into the heart of Siena. The room was nice – clean with a large comfy bed, plenty of cupboard space, nice shower. Breakfast was nice although a limited selection. The...

I booked this hotel last minute unable to decide since there were so many comments. Take a cab from the train station it's 10$ and worth it. Location is GREAT. 5 minutes away from the Pispini door. Walking distance from everything to see in Siena. The coffee was lukewarm (guess the expresso machine was not at 100%) but overal a...

We have just returned from a week in Tuscany & stopped off for a night in Siena. Overall I would say this is probably the best hotel we could have stayed at in the town. This is one of the very few hotels in Siena that have their own parking garage. We rented a 2 person Smart car which was...
