We picked this hotel for location, especially on arrival after a long flight. And, it was easy to get to (their directions) via the Alilaguna to St. Marks and then the Water Taxi (2 stops). After that, you just walk through the alley to the square & there's the hotel. That being said, it is not cheap, the rooms are...

We stayed here October 2012. The rooms are tiny, and the bathroom a tiny square with a curtain over the floor! The rooms are so noisy, you can hear everything outside, and in next rooms. The breakfast is average, but good luck getting a table. I would never stay here again. Been away 6 weeks, and this is the worst...

We stayed here for 4 nights and truly had a memorable and wonderful time. Our room was on the canal side which I would highly recommend. The breakfast was excellent with a wide range to choose from - definitely the best out of the 3 hotels we stayed in. The hotel is located very close to all sights and couldn't...

We stayed at Hotel Ala for 2 nights in September. The hotel was clean and our room and bathroom were decently sized. For travelers arriving from the Venice airport, I would strongly suggest a water taxi ride to the hotel over the public transportation service, Alilaguna. While more expensive, the water taxi drops you off right at the hotel's front...

I had a single room, which reminded me of an interior ship cabin but with a window. At first I was dismayed with its size, but it was actually quite comfortable and efficient. Window opened to the courtyard which I loved. Front desk staff was wonderful to me. Breakfast was I impressive. Many choices, but average in taste. Buffet serving...

First, we were able to take the water taxi right up to the hotel- which was great so we didn't have to drag luggage around at all. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the rooms were spacious for Europe. Our room overlooked the courtyard- which we really enjoyed, The concierges were very helpful and friendly. We were about a 10-minute...

We enjoyed our stay in Venice Hotel was nice, we had a canal view. Breakfast was excellent. Room was clean and comfortable. My only complaint was the front desk staff.

We went for a 4 day holyday in Venice and we booked this hotel quite ahead (5 months ahed!). That way we got a nice price attending to prices in San Marco. However, we have been given an awful room (not even 1 star worthy...) with a window facing a wall of another building and therefore with a very bad...

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
