We spent three nights at this hotel and it was perfect! Elegant rooms, a nice American bar, and a decent buffet breakfast are just a few of the good points, there are many more. It is just 50 metres walk from the Santa Maria del Giglio stop so is very convenient and everything is within walking distance, all the attractions,... More

I stayed at Hotel Ala last week - terrible experience. I now noticed a review saying how awful Room 466 was - the reply from the hotel was an apology and a promise they would remodel the room. We had 466 last week - why are they still putting people there is my question. First the air conditioning was more... More

In the middle of 3 nights in Hotel Ala, ideally located as its a minute walk from Giglio stop on the vaporetto from the airport..so really easy to get to. We got room 491 which is a quaint 4th floor room overlooking the quiet square below, it is tiny but has a great shower and a huge double bed plus... More

I thought this hotel would be easy to find since it was near a major dock, but was I surprised when our water taxi from the airport entered a side canal and took us right to the front (back) door. Hotel staff opened the door and took our bags into the lobby. After enduring three flights and a storm delay,... More

A little hard to find if you are not familiar with Venice. Ask for directions to the Giglio and it's right next door. Perfect location for Interpreti Veneziana and Musica A Palazzo (both a must). Very nice staff, clean room, and beautiful rooftop terrace!

A quiet hotel near to St Mark's square, efficiently run, but with only one towel per day. From the room you could hear the sound of people talling etx below, and the sound was funelled up between the building, so was a constant reminder od the time that Ventian people and tourists were awake. No view from the room other... More
