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

We loved our stay at Hotel Fontana. A lovely little family run hotel with lift access to all floors and free wifi access in the reception/bar area. The room was great, not massive or overly fancy, but was clean and tidy and served its purpose, and we really didn't need more, if you're in Venice you're not going to be... More

Great Location. Close to St. Marco square and Grand Canal Family owned and operated, Diego was so friendly and helpful. Great breakfast included. Close to shopping and surrounded by restaurants. We stumbled on this hotel by accident and we were very happy. Met the Grandma who started it all. Only 2 floors of rooms but have an elevator for those... More

What a wonderful gem we found--with the help of Rick Steves' guide book--near St Mark's! This is a small, family run, quaint, and comfortable place with excellent service. Upon arrival early in the morning, we were greeted warmly and given a place to store luggage while we immediately began site seeing. When we checked in later in the day, we... More

My family spent four days at the Hotel Fontana in the middle of September. An incredibly convenient location - quick and scenic walk to St. Mark's Square or to the Rialto Bridge, as well as other sights. But the best feature is the easy access from the St Zaccariah vaporetta stop; very important for arrival and departure. Only about a... More
