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

We stayed at Al Portico for two days on our travels around italy and found that of all the places we stayed Venice was very expensive for accomodation. Al Portico however was great value for money and in a perfect location for vising all the beautiful sites. Our welcome was warm and our room was spotless (cleanliness is very important... More

Loved every minute of our four night stay at Al Portico Guest house. The manager Sebestian and the girls Ana and Vanessa, made us feel so welcoming. The guest house is very well centered in the Cannaregio area, which we honestly believe is a very nice part in Venice. Al Portico is tucked away in an alley, just 10 seconds... More

We loved everything about this place. It's just 10 minutes from the main Santa Lucia train station. My husband can read maps well and we walked it from the station to the place without any difficulty. The place is just two minutes away from the Water bus stop. It has lots of eating places, ATMs and supermarkets nearby. We had... More

We booked Al Portico B&B for my birthday weekend. For the occasion we wanted to stay somewhere pretty, and Venice being such an expensive city for accommodation (particularly inside the island as opposed to in Mestre), we were surprised to find a reasonable price for a guest house in Cannaregio. It is true that the place is very difficult to... More
