2.02km from Argin Grosso CanovaWe spent one week at Alex in April 2018. As we made round trip through Tuscany (not only Florence but Pisa, Chianti, Barberino etc.) we decided to book Alex as our base station. The main reasons to book it with breakfast included were its position and parking availability. With some minor remarks, we would like to suggest upper pointed facility as even first choice for stay in Florence in case your primary target would be: exploring, exploring and exploring :). Here some short description which could help you to reach better overview about Hotel Alex. Position Position of Hotel Alex is just great: app. 3-4 minutes’ walk to train station Federiga and then only 10 minutes away from the Federiga to train station Santa Novella. Also bus stops in front of a hotel but we didn’t test this option. Tickets for trains are available on reception and they are very cheap. Hotel surrounding is safe and quiet especially if you could book room oriented not directly toward street but those with balcony. Room Room we had was basic, quiet and simple but very clean and charming. TV, bathroom with hair drier and enough towels changed regularly were available. Breakfast Was quite good for us. We started everyday breakfast “procedure” with masterpieces ristreto or cappuccino: both were super delicious. It is free of charge and the machine making coffee drinks is functioning just perfect. Also fresh fruit, milk, ham, cheese, butter, boiled eggs, pastry products, croissant, jam, yoghurts, cereals, juices were available. Breakfast area is small but nice& clean with personal so polite and very welcoming one. Service Hotel Alex team (reception desk, cleaning ladies, breakfast room etc.) were so polite, friendly, always ready to help. Well done guys and thank you very very much for good stay at your facility. Despite all above mentioned pros here also some minor remark. It is right that the park place is available and that is cheap too. But, unfortunately the same park place is used by restaurant guest from the restaurant close to. And just imagine, you are back after one day’s trip to Pisa and all park places are occupied. And on the next day the same situation???? It is not problem if you must wait 5,10 minutes to find the guest who is willing to relocate auto, but after 20-25 minutes it is somehow boring. Therefore, dear Alex team please try to take care about your guests already booked park places little bit more.
