This little hotel was perfect for my first trip to Venice. Easy to find in a city of small alleys and tons of tourists. The staff were very helpful. The room was clean, beds comfortable and bathroom adequate. The breakfast was more than adequate to get through the morning - cold cereal, hard boiled eggs, cold cuts, fruit and bread/cheese....

We just spent two nights in this very clean and well located hotel. The owners - a warm family- made us feel so welcomed! It is a short walk from the vaporetto, St. Mark's square, and streets of shopping and dining. Bed was great - we felt well rested after long walks in the city of Love!

Stayed here in August for 4 nights, on arrival the guy at reception told us we had been upgraded to a room with a terrace, this was a welcome surprise and it turned out to be very nice. The hotel is family run, it is a fair size for a back street hotel with a nice bar and large breakfast... More

5 minutes from the Water Taxi and Vaporetto drop off and 7 mins from St Marks Square. Very convenient location. Small, family run hotel. Pleasant, helpful Staff. Large clean room. Breakfast, in our opinion, was good. Help yourself Continental Buffet which meant we never went out feeling hungry. Plenty of restaurants on the doorstep. Plenty of shops on the way... More

The hotel is ideally located and the street noise is bearable with ear plugs. Very old-fashioned rooms and WIFI is not usable in many rooms. Almost no foreign channels, although it says satellite TV. The staff is nice and rooms are very clean. Prices are good for this location and Venice. Breakfast is a big joke to be honest. Coffee... More

The location is perfect. Away from the really busy areas but in an area close to all main attractions and with ample services n shops right next door. This is a family owned hotel and it shows. Got a nice personal touch to it all and older generations are always about greeting guests. The bedrooms and bathrooms are basic but... More

Found the hotel via Trivago and was very pleased with the choice. Having established which boat-taxi stop to get off, I was amazed at just how easy it was to find the hotel. Literally about 100 yards from the Grand Canal and just a few minutes walk to St Marks Square. The hotel is family run and they are very... More

Location: Excellent location close to St Marks square. Travelling with luggage can be very problematic in a place like Venice which is known for its canals and bridges. However since this hotel is located very close to the water bus stop St Zaccaria, this was not an issue for us. Staff: Very friendly staff. Helped us with all information about... More

If you stay in Venice, Hotel Fontana is your place to rest! It has a great location coupled with great hospitality and support of the family who run it. We have stayed there twice, and with no doubt, will stay there again when we go back to beautiful Venice. The elevator is a also a plus for those who have... More
