Had an amazing stay here at the Hotel Fontana for two nights from the 24th March 2015. The hotel was in the most ideal location, a great base for venturing around Venice by foot. It was no further than a 3-5 Minute walk to St Marks Square and probably a 15 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge. Shops, restaurants and... More

Nice and quiet family run hotel, very close to San Marco square (approx 5 mins walk). Friendly staff (all speak excellent English). Rooms a bit old fashioned - but clean and somehow the style adds to the "real" Italian experience; nice and warm (in March); fresh towels every day. Basic continental style breakfast, cute little bar area behind reception (very... More

A quiet Hotel situated near San Zacharia square. I couldnt have wished for a better stay. Room was immaculately clean, towels on tap, none of this rubbish of saving towels to be green. The staff were wonderfully warm and friendly and breakfast more than adequate, I would have to give this hotel 10 out of 10. The owners are very... More

I have stayed at Hotel Fontana for holidays over the past 20 years, and many times twice yearly. That in itself would be the highest recommendation. I previously stayed in Venice hotels where I was treated as merely a client. I then discovered the Fontana where the staff are genuinely concerned that your stay at the hotel and in Venice... More

Hi, I just wanted to send a big thank you to the Hotel Fontana, Venice. My two adult children and I arrived a few days after the New Year. This hotel is very accessible from the train station. You just get the regular ferry service and it is a two minute walk once you alight from the vessel. The staff... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over New Year; I initially booked two rooms, a double and a twin, but when we arrived they had given us 2 singles and a double which suited our teenagers perfectly. It's a great spot; an easy walk from the water and St. Mark's Square; there's also a great restaurant (Roberto's) just across the... More

The Hotel is max five minutes from San Zacharia boat stop. We got the water taxi from the airport for €15 each way. We found it the easiest way to get there. When you get off the boat the small street is right in front of you. It is also only about 5-10 minutes easy walk to St Marks Square.... More
