“Always great to be at Al Sole”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I have been several times at Hotel Al Sole, each time on business for a few days. The hotel is well located in terms of reachability form the airport (1 minute walking from Piazzale Roma) and train station. The staff is nice and helpful. The rooms are clean, cosy (although a bit old stylish) and the hotel is quiet. Breakfast is fine. The only thing negative point is you have to pay separately to get internet access ...

Room Tip: You can ask for a room at the back of the hotel to make sure you get the quietest one.

Good points: Good location, very close to Santa Lucia train station and half an hour walk from Piazza San Marco. Some rooms have a nice view on the surrounding roofs and on the canal. Friendly staff.
Bad points: very old furniture in the rooms, no wi-fi, very poor breakfast and...the room was not cleaned until 5 o'clock in the afternoon!
Good place, but we could have probably found something better for this price.

This hotel is well located for the bus station and is in a quiet residential area making it great to sleep. Attractive old palace on the outside but tired and dates internally in need of modernisation. Breakfast was very basic but is included in the price. No restaurant but lots of local choice. Helpful reception staff will book concerts etc.

We stayed at Hotel Al Sole for 2 nights. It is about 5-10 minutes walk from the train station (if you know your way!) and you only have to cross one bridge on the way, so is handy if you have loads of luggage.

You can eat breakfast with the birds out in the garden, which is well shaded.

Our room was just about big enough and the bathroom was pretty much perfect.
The interior of the hotel is very posh, and the staff are well presented.

Definately stay here if you can find a good deal (we managed to get 2 nights at £152!).

We stayed here for 3 nights over new year and was very impressed by the location being a short walk from the bus and railway stations. The rooms were clean and tidy and relatively quiet. We found the beds were excellent and were very comfortable. As we've found elsewhere in Italy, the breakfasts were not great and it was a shame that the coffee was poor quality machine generated.

The hotel is in a perfect location when it come to getting around. Close to the train and bus station yet also close to the sights. The price was also good for Venice although the room was not one of the best as its views were of a wall no more than a meter away which also made the room very dark and as the room had only limited lights it was always dark. The décor in the room was tired and the walls looked like they were in desperate need of attention. Also the dust in one of the bed laps was so thick it looked as if it had never been cleaned but apart from this the hotel was clean and the corridors and reception/common areas was well decorated and maintained.

The breakfast was ok and nothing more. Having stayed in two hotels in other areas of Italy before this one it was easy to compare and was by far the worst of the three. Very limited choice although what was there was good.

Wi-fi was very expensive if you wanted it and would recommend going to a bar/cafe if you want to use the net as the price was seriously not worth it.

The service was good and the receptionists were very helpful and friendly when it came to answering any questions we had.

Overall the hotel was good for what we needed it for and i would stay again if the price was right. As for whether i would recommend it to others id have to say i would but get a room with a view and don't be too hopeful of a vast breakfast and you will be fine.

Room Tip: Try to get room with a view. Don't bother with room 201 if you like light.

We spent half term there for 5 days with child. Perfect location near main train and bus station, supermarket for picnics and on a canal with free speed boat trip to Murano glass factory. We also spent two warm sunny afternoons at the Lido with great icecream.

We had a lovely room with view and bells ringing in the evenings, excellent dining and entertainment all within walking or vaparetto (water taxi) We even found a gondola ride for E2.50 from one side of the Grand Canal to the other - S.Toma. Pretty courtyard garden.

The hotel is really clean and lovely free soaps, sweets and healthy breakfasts. Staff all really friendly.

Room Tip: all have lovely rooftop views even if no canal - we had canal view room and pretty courtyard garden
