We spent two nights in Venice in March. We had a large room on the fourth floor, overlooking the church. It was very quiet and certainly large enough. The entire hotel was extremely clean. The staff were very accommodating - helping us plan our two day excursion. The location is ideal. We took the Vaporetta from the train station on... More

I traveled to Venice solo and wanted a place close to the Venice Biennale sites. Hotel Fontana was perfect. Had a room to the back with a terrace overlooking San Zaccaria. The staff, in particular Diego, was very helpful and kind. Location was great - close to vaporetto stops, Alilaguna stop from the airport and shops, cafes, etc. Yes, I... More

Stayed here in July during a multi-city tour of Europe. As this was my second trip to Venice, I was not interested in staying canal side at canal side prices. I was just in town long enough to go to the Biennalle and Lido beach. I stayed in a single room on the top floor expecting a claustrophobic hot room.... More

As the other reviews state, this hotel is very well located, especially if you are new to visiting Venice -- it's easy to get anywhere from there. The rooms are large and pretty comfortable, the breakfast is perfectly acceptable and served at reasonable hours, and the staff really is very warm and helpful. There was one big problem. Mosquitoes! And... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. I'm really sorry for the mosquitos issue but the warm temperatures and humidity have extended the phenomenon up to first weeks of November, not only in Venice but all over Italy (http://www.tgcom24.mediaset.it/2013/video/ancora-zanzare-a-novembre_2003523.shtml). We try to solve the trouble by placing repellent tablets to be used with proper device, provided in all the rooms.... More

The Hotel Fontana is in a great location, a short walk from the Alilaguna (from Marco Polo Airport) and no bridges for our rolling suitcases to navigate. We stayed for two nights prior to our cruise. Diego at the desk was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, breakfast good and the value for that amazing location near San Marco Square... More

Just got back from a 4 night stay at the Hotel Fontana where my wife and I were celebrating our 25th Silver wedding anniversary. What can I say? On arrival we were met by Gabriello who was wonderful. Immediately upgraded our room as it was our 25th to a room with balcony overlooking San Zaccaria church and square. The rooms... More

If you are looking for comfortable, centrally located, well priced accomodation in Venice ...look no further. Although not luxurious it represents good value, is clean and the family could not be nicer or more helpful. Rooms overlooking the street can be a bit noisy but quietens down after midnight.

Used this hotel for a 2 day stay in Venice after a cruise. Everything was perfect from the minute we stepped in the door. It's a small family run hotel and everyone of the staff we met made us feel welcome and couldn't do enough for us. It has the ideal location, 5 minutes from St Marks Square and a... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Fontana. The hotel is located within a short distance from the Vaporetto stop and St. Mark's Square. It is also located next to a restaurant , bar and a few small shops on a very quaint Venitian street. The owners, who are brothers, were very friendly offering warm smiles, cold beverages and made...

A small hotel that you could walk right past. We had a delightful stay there, helped by Diago and family. They made sincere enquiries as to our needs being met. Made some great suggestions on things to see. Would never had gone to Burano without their input. We had a double deluxe with a balcony. The room was a nice... More
