Can't fault the Hotel Al Gazzettino on location: about 5 minutes walk from St Marks Square in one direction and 5 minutes to the Rialto Bridge in the other. Vaporretto stops at both (we'd recommend the hop-on-hop-off tickets for ease of transport which also take you out to Murano/Burano). Our room on the first floor was nice. You had to... More

We have visited Venice a few times and always choose different hotels. This hotel was by far the best location that we have had, it is just a short walk to St Marks Square and an even shorter walk to the Rialto bridge. Our room was lovely, we were on the first floor and had a lovely view of the... More

From the outside you would never suspect to find such nice rooms! The decor is absolutely beautiful, and for a moment you can feel inside a venetian mansion. My family of 4 fit perfectly well inside this comfortable, clean and spacious room, having seperate beds for my kids to sleep on, wich was really nice. The bathroom is completely modern... More

Hotel Al Gazzatino was a great place to stay in Venice. The location is ideal as it is just a short walk to both the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square. It makes it easy to get to all the main sights but also at such a central place, it allows you to walk to and explore areas off the... More

My family of four began our two-week Mediterranean cruise aboard the NCL Spirit by checking into the Hotel Al Gazzettiono for one night prior to embarking on our ship at the port of Venice. What a wonderful choice! Although we paid the most thrifty price available online (quite reasonable!), our room was spacious, with a thoroughly modern bathroom, a comfortable... More

The location for this hotel is just brilliant. 250m walk to Rialto bridge, 300m walk to St Marco's Square. I haven't come across many hotels in Venice with better locations to both attractions. Thanks to my offline nokia maps on my Lumia, we were able to find the hotel without any problems (with Venice - nothing is ever easy to... More

Quaint little place not to far from the Rialto Bridge. My 10 trip to Venice but my first time actually staying on the island and so much fun to have this hotel as home base. Centrally located between the Rialto and Piaaza San Marco with plenty of shops and restaurants around it. Room was spacious, try to get a canal... More

This was the third different hotel we have stayed at in Venice in the past year. Overall, this one was the best. The entry way is nothing special, but the minute we opened the door to the room we knew we had made the right choice! Traveling with 2 teen daughters, the quad room was more than spacious for our...

Our family of 4 stayed here for two nights. It was easy to access by foot with our suitcases in tow from the Rialto Bridge. Our room was large with 2 single beds and a queen. The beds were firm and very comfortable. The bathroom was newly remodeled and had an awesome "rain" shower head. Everything was super clean and... More

We stayed here for one night before a cruise. We came in by train from Lecco on Lake Como and the directions the hotel sent us were perfect. The room and bath were small but very clean and the size is adequate. Space is at a premium in this lovely boutique hotel - it is Venice, after all! The room... More
