Superb 9,0 From 404 reviews

Exceptional 10,0
Great hotel
The Alex is very well positioned- we walked everywhere during our stay. Decor is tasteful and classy. Shower was excellent. Didn’t try the breakfast. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Airport bus stops just a couple of minutes away so no need for a taxi to the airport.

Good place to be under the weather
I was traveling solo, and unfortunately ended up sick when I started my stay. But it was a wonderful place to be sick, very comfortable the beds were wonderful and good food.

Loved It!
The Alex has welcoming staff and is very clean, gorgeously styled and beautifully decorated. We loved the comfort and coziness of our room. In room coffee and tea were welcome as was the small mini-fridge. Great location 10 min walk from Grafton/Suffolk Sts. Will stay again!
Sara, us1 night trip
Good 6,0
Will not be back, surprised at positive reviews
Booked based on the good reviews, unfortunately, my stay was far from ideal. First, the sheets don't fit the bed properly so we awoke lying on a dirty mattress as the sheet had come off during the night. Lucky then were awoken early with house cleaning coming into our room at 7.30am which was a surprise. Will not be back.

Very good 8,0
The sleeping comfort the first night was terrible because of the very hot duvet. It was better the second night after we asked for a simple sheet. The breakfast was very disappointing, particularly the eggs. Most of the other food was OK
