    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!

    Beautiful hotel in a great location. Staff was very kind, sent us a sweet gift to congratulate us on our honeymoon. Breakfast buffet was included, food wasn’t amazing but hey...included. Just wish they offered some sort of airport shuttle and the ac wouldn’t work in our room- luckily it was cool enough that we just needed to open the window.
