We've booked Fontana for a 2 nights' stay pre-cruise, mainly because its location on the Alilaguna Blue Line and its affordable price. Turns out it was a brilliant choice. From the airport directly to the S. Zaccaria stop, and then, we simply couldn't believe it, 3 min walk to the hotel, no steps and no bridges to cross. This hotel... More

Agonized over where to stay while in Venice as part of our 2-week 30th Wedding Anniversary trip to Italy. Considered everything from b&b, vrbo, to 5-star hotels and finally settled on this...What a gem! Quaint & charming. A/C (self regulated), elevator, and complimentary continental breakfast. Room was plenty of space for us as a travelling couple (but who's going to... More

Great for what we needed. Nice clean hotel with helpful staff that will provide you with whatever you need. Located far enough from St mark's that there were no crowds but close enough that everything is right around the corner.

This hotel had a great location not far from St. Mark's Square. Easy walk there and to the vaporetto. Staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was decent. I stayed on the 4th floor and one of the drawbacks was the size of the bathroom. It was very small and the shower had a low ceiling. I am tall, so... More

This was a very friendly family owned hotel with an elevator! The staff had great recommendations for restaurants and places to see. It is an easy stroll from the water taxi making hauling luggage a breeze. Close to St. Mark's and other attractions. We enjoyed our stay!

Excellent locations easy to get to from the ferry and great for getting around Venice. Friendly team of staff and good value drinks in the bar. Three good restaurants across the alleyway from the hotel. Recommend this hotel for your stay in Venice and I will be going back on our next visit.

Small friendly, family run hotel, centrally located in a quiet piazza. Short walk from San Zaccaria vaporetto stop, which is important when arriving and leaving with luggage! Can be done without a canal bridge too! Staff helpful. Rooms clean, if a little dated.
