We had a great time at Al Portico. The location was fab and easy to find (once you figure out how the houses in Venice are numbered- which is a bit random!). The staff were lovely and helpful. Breakfast was good too. And they seemed generally concerned about making our trip absolutely great! I especially like the fact that the... More

Location is very good, just one minute walk from the Venice main street of Rio Terrà Maddalena, but nested in a very quiet neighborhood, not too hard to find. Rooms are ok and fairly clean. Narrow stairs with no elevator, so pack light. The staff very helpful. The breakfast is excellent, the best continental breakfast we have had anywhere in... More

We transferred here from a sister property after deciding to extend our stay in Venice. The location was great, about ten minutes walk to various sights, just off a main walkway with shops and restaurants, but far enough away from things that it's quiet and you can find neighborhood type restaurants. The room was a bit small, but big enough... More

This is a good value. Clean, with good location and friendly staff. The breakfast was great and was served on the roof top. An easy walk from the train station and a water bus stop is close by also. Very close to many places to eat and shop. Use Google maps street view to help you find it. The bed... More

Lovely guest house. Perfect position away from the crowds but close enough to everything.Lovely rooftop for Brekkie. Breakfast could be offered a little earlier, but when we informed the staff that we had to leave early they made sure our breakfast was in our room before we left. Staff are very helpful. Room is small but all we needed as... More

We loved staying here for our three days in Venice. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful, making suggestions for dining and sightseeing. It is close to the train station and there is a Vaparetto station a short distance away, making it very easy to get wherever you want to go. You are steps from restaurants, shops and street markets.... More

I loved this place! Although quite tricky to find, (perhaps look up accurate directions before you come) we ended up asking another hotel for directions! Didn't matter, because although reception was closed, we were buzzed in through the main door, and our key was waiting for us with wifi pass code and information about check in and breakfast! We were... More

Guest house is located not far from train station and a vaporetto stop, off main noisy street. The receptionist spoke very good English and allowed us to check in 4 h earlier for free. Our room was on the 2nd floor, but we had no problem climbing stairs with hand luggage (there is no elevator, as building is old). The... More

The staff was friendly and eager to help us. The location of the hotel is optimal for people arriving by train and it was easy to find based on the stuff's instructions (just keep track of the house's numbers). It is close to boats and main touristic attractions. Nice breakfast in bed or terrace. The breakfast is served a bit... More

The best part of this particular hotel on our European vacation is that they emailed detailed directions to find the place and get in after closing from the train station. The directions were perfect and I remember we were wondering if we were going the right way, looked up and we were there (less than 10 min walk). Our keys... More
