We stayed here for one night before we embarked on a cruise to the Mediterranean (Norwegian Cruise Line - absolutely perfect) and we loved it. First of all it is 2 minutes away from St. Marks square and vaporetto stop, which makes it really convenient,...More
This is a wonderful hotel so centrally located and close to St Mark's Square, classy and comfortable. The air con was excellent for the heat. The receptionist was very friendly and spoke English which was a welcome relief after battling through Rome train stations. The...More

A VERY well travelled friend put together a great cruise on the Adriatic and we stayed here pre departure. As others have said the Location is without peer. The staff was top notch....even insuring that our group was met by water taxi (two blocks away)...More
We stayed here a year ago for 1 night. It was much better then the first hotel we stay at in Venice, but again it was nothing special. Everything was pretty clean (except the walls, the wallpaper was dirty and peeling), breakfast was good (hot...More
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.

We used Alliguna also for the transfer from the airport. It worked well and we enjoyed the transfer even though it is around a good hour plus due to the other stops. Once you get off a St Mark's it is just a matter of turning left and up the main shopping street you cannot go past it! Up at the top turn left over another bridge and you will see a Gondola station on your left with a number of hotels one i think the Viola which is the sister hotel to the Anastasia and where you eat breakfast. Just head in underneath and round to your right which will take you into a Square with the Anastasia on your right. You do need to hit the buzzer and someome from the Viola will come round to you for checkin.

Hi Kent, unfortunately you should be prepared for all transport in Venice to be expensive. We used the Alilaguna water taxi service which is probably more of a shuttle or bus service (it's not a private water taxi). The cost of this was 15 euros per person. I think the cost for private water taxis can be as around 100 - 200 euros so it's definitely a cheaper option.
It won't let me post a website link in this message but if you google Alilaguna it's the first link that comes up. It is best to get the Blue Line (Linea Blu) from the airport which leaves every 15 mins. There is no need to pre book and you can purchase tickets when you get to the airport. We got ours from a counter in the baggage claim area, but there are also machines around the airport. The website has instructions for how to walk from the airport terminal down to the departure point (it took us about 8-10mins to walk). You should then take the boat to the San Marco stop which is the closest stop to the hotel. From there, the hotel is only a couple of minutes walk. Make sure you have a map up on your phone or hard copy though, as the short walk involves a couple of turns down small alley ways (as do all Venice's walks).
Also, be prepared for a long boat ride. I think it took us about an hour and 20mins to get to the San Marco stop.
Hope that helps!
