Positive Reviews

Convenient Location

Most guests found Alex's location in the 1st Arrondissement to be convenient, especially being so close to the Gare Saint-Charles and public transportation. The Old Port is only a 15-minute stroll away, and there is plenty of shopping, dining, sightseeing, and entertainment within walking distance. In fact, guests say you can get almost anywhere in town on foot from the hotel.

Pleasant Personnel

The staff at Alex are friendly, helpful, and accommodating, according to most reviews. If you run into any problems, they will try to resolve it in an efficient manner. If you need suggestions on where to go or how to get there, don't hesitate to ask, as the staff is very knowledgeable about the area.

Comfortable Stay

Overall, guests were pleased with their accommodations, saying that the hotel has a good ambiance. Guests also recommend getting the daily breakfast, adding that the food is fresh and tasty, perfect before a long day out.

Negative Reviews

Quiet by Night

Though most guests didn't have a complaint, some found that noise from street traffic can be bothersome, but only if you plan to go to bed early. Generally, traffic tends to quiet down after dark. However, if you're a light sleeper, you may want to bring a pair of earplugs as a precaution, and ask for a quieter room away from the roads.

Street Smart

While most guests had no problem with safety, and found the hotel's location convenient, others were a bit concerned that the local area seemed “sketchy”. However, simple awareness and exercising basic street smarts will make for a comfortable stay.

Poor Direction

Make sure to look up directions to the hotel before your trip. A few guests said the hotel was a bit hard to find.
