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

We recently visited Venice and stayed here. The location was excellent, the staff were very friendly and rooms were amazing value for money. I had proposed to my girlfriend in the afternoon and told the guy on reception after he'd asked us 'how our day was'. 5 minutes later a knock on the bedroom door and the receptionist greeted us...

Stayed at the Hotel Fontana in late September. The location is perfect. Five minutes from St. Marks and the grand canal. About three minutes from the water taxi stop. Used the water taxi from the cruise ship area and to the airport. Easy and at a reasonable price.The hotel has lots of restaurants in the area and shopping all around.... More

Hotel Fontana is a cosy little hotel only 5 minute walk from San Marco square and even a shorter walk to the sea front. Its location is only one of the great features. It is run by a wonderful family, who make you feel like at home. The family and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The room... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Fontana for three nights and found it very satisfactory. It is small and basic but totally adequate for our needs. We loved the family feeling. The location is great, very convenient to walk to San Marco, the Zacarias vaporetto stop, Rialto Bridge, with so many restaurants and shops along the way. The... More

We stayed three nights in this friendly little hotel. The family owners are all very helpful and speak good English (and it seems several other languages too). Location is good - near San Marco but not too near so it was not too saturated in tourists. Nearest vaparetto is San Zaccharia, also the name of the nearby church, well worth... More
