Booked this after personal recommendation and then reading reviews. Would echo comments re location - is in a quiet area next to a canal. It is good to avoid the crush of the tourist attractions to have a more peaceful place to go back to. It is less than a minutes walk to a co-op supermarket and there are loads of restaurants within 5 minutes walk.
The walk to the main attractions can take as long or as short as you like. With the mass of churches, squares, dead ends if you are not in a hurry. Alternativly the water bus stop is 5 mins walk in either direction or for 50cents each get the gondola across the Grand Canal to the Rialto Market.
Had fantastic service - we let them know in advance I was a coeliac and Alexandra bought some gluten free rolls and muesli for breakfast. There was cheese, meat, yogurt,cereals available , fresh croissants and pastries were provided as well.
The only downside is the rooms were not well sound proofed - could hear other residents all too clearly!
Overall excellent value and would return.

Stayed 4 nights at the Alla Vite Dorata in Venice during Carnival time. A small hotel with only 6 rooms, but very comfortable. Tastefully decorated and very clean. Room had a view of the canal at the back of the hotel. Friendly and helpful owner. Good location with only short walks to major attractions. Would be happy to stay there again.

Returned to Venice again for the Carnival, and stayed at the Alla Vite Dorata for the first time, and with friends who occupied two other (double) rooms. It's conveniently located, only being a few minutes walk from Fondamenta Nove for the vaporetto (waterbus), and for shops and bars. The Rialto is only a few minutes walk too. It's a very small hotel - one of the smallest I've ever stayed in, only having six rooms - but certainly is not short on space in the room I had. On entering the hotel you immediately get the feeling of it being cosy and homely; it's beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean throughout, and I really enjoyed my stay. When I next go Venice, I would certainly hope to be able to stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms, reception and dining area are on the ground floor. Has one single room, overlooking the s...

It's a beautiful place in venice, located in a very nice area of Venice called Cannaregio, which is very well served with restaurants, shops, supermarkets, cinema... walking distance from Rialto, San Marco and the train station. The room where we stayed was new, cosy, well furnished and warm. Breakfast is great and the owner are extremely kind.
Highly recommended, also because , with all those services and for being in Venice, it's really at a reasonable price! Very happy with this B&B, thank you!

This find is off the beaten path a bit but is perfect if you want a quiet somewhat secluded place that's in a neighborhood with real Venetian residents rather than in the middle of the tourist throngs streaming between the train station and Piazza San Marco. It's a pleasant 10-minute walk from the Fondamenta Nuove ferry stop which is the recommended way to get to the hotel (from the airport) rather than coming from the train station. If you can afford a water taxi, there's a dock on the adjacent canal that looks like the taxi can pull up to drop you off literally at the front door.

Aleksandra (the owner) is a pleasant and charming hostess and speaks excellent English (as well as several other languages) if your Italian is marginal. The breakfast room is cute with double doors that open onto the canal. The best table for breakfast sits just inside the double doors offering a quaint canalside setting.

The housekeeping staff open the room windows during the day ostensibly to air out the room, but there are mosquitoes, especially during rainy weather, so it's best to keep the windows closed. The air conditioning is modern as well as the bathroom fixtures.

Room Tip: Pick the front room (#6 I think) for privacy as it's separate from the other rooms. This room is...

I have travelled through Rome, Florence, Venice and Milan and this was by far the best stay when all things are considered.
Location is brilliant- smack in the middle of the Cannareggio sestiere(district) but in a winderful quite street and since its at the end of the street, u get amazing canal facing rooms. From the main santa lucia station, its a quick vaporetto ride ( 4 stops from the station ) to the Ca'adoro stop...and very easy to walk to the hotel even if you have luggage. Infact if you havejust a backpack, you can actually walk your way back to the main tain station as it is a staight road from Strada Nuova which is a minute away from tge hotels location. There is trattorias galore, even a Coop store right next to the corner of the hotel street where you can pick up some basics, a fruit vendor stand at the end of the street. Rialto bridge is 5 mins by foot and St. marks square is 7-10 mins. Venice is a walking city so only take a vaporetto if u want to traverse the grand Canal.
Alla Vita Dorata felt totally like home and thats primarily down to the wonderful hostess Alexandria. She makes you comfortable and puts in little touches ( she gave me venice guide books and walking tour trips as soon as i arrived from her personal collection and even out me into the double bed canal facing room though i had booked a single one as the other one was vacant). The day i checked out, she ensured breakfast was ready for me at 7 30 instead of the normal 8 30 and even walked me down to the vaporetto stop!!
Apart from that, the rooms are equipped with mini bars, lcd tv, heaters, safe and her hotel is also disability friendly. The single room ( room 1) is compact and cosy and the single bed turns into a bunk bed for two - so its great if you want your own room for privacy if you are travelling as a family of four and put your kids into the single room no 1.
In all, a fabulous stay....will most definitely be a reason for me to come back to Venice....

Room Tip: Ask for the Red Room ( room 2) - has the best expansive views of the canal. If not available then as...
