The staff were wonderful, especially the luggage handlers. Mattress was a little lumpy but I still slept well. Full breakfast buffet was delicious and plentiful. Closer to Rialto vaporetto stop than San Marco - less than 5 minutes walk and no bridge to cross - important when transporting suitcases. The room was great and canal view was as advertised.

Just a few blocks north of St. Mark's square, and a few blocks south of the Rialto. The staff was very solicitous and helpful. But be warned: we were on the 4th floor (5th floor in the US) and that is a lot of steps! Overall, we were very pleased.

A short walk from St. Mark's Square, this boutique hotel allows you to imagine you are living in the renaissance time but with today's comforts. Clean and well kept. Friendly and excellent service. I would without a doubt use this hotel again on my next trip to Venice.

Stayed at the hotel for four nights. Close to the Vaporetto #1 Rialto, Piazza de San Marco, and walking distance to most of the sights. The staff was very helpful: carrying luggage up three flights and Vlana gave great restaurant recommendations and even walked us to one that we were unable to find! Rooms were small but very clean.

We were extremely satisfied by our staying at Al Gambero. Cozy and beautiful hotel, wonderful location, hospitable personal, tasty breakfast, and so on :) The price could be a little bit lower... But it's Venice ;)

This hotel was very central to everything we needed. Staff were very helpful and even assisted carrying bags up and down stairs. We had a canal view room which was a nice touch. Loved watching the gonaldas go by from our window.

The hotel is about 5min walk from the vaporetto station. It's also very near Piazza de San Marco. Hotel doesn't have a lift though so you'll have to carry your luggage up the stairs. It's very tiny though and I guess you pay for convenience. I got a room with a canal view so it was quite nice. Breakfast is... More

For the money I think it would be hard to beat this hotel. It was clean and comfortable 2 mins walk from Rialto and 2 mins from St Marks. Staff were very friendly and I had an email a few days before I went telling me exactly how to get from the airport to the hotel which was very useful.... More

After practically ruining a trip to Rome last September by choosing a poor (but far from cheap!) hotel, I did better research this time and it paid off. This hotel is halfway between the Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco, with a walk of about 5 minutes to the vaporetto and airport boat stop at Rialto. The hotel is above... More
