Ahh where do I start. This hotel is OLD and it shows (and to be fair may be most other hotels in the area are same). It is located in a fairly quite neighborhood, but is walkable distance to everywhere. Frankly, I saw a hostel that was the same level as this hotel.
The rooms are okay clean, as clean as the poor lady can get this old room. The room sizes are really small, and frankly for 215 Euro/ night I was expecting a little better. The shower curtain in the bathroom had mold built up on the bottom and was disgusting. Since I have mold allergy I asked the reception to change the shower curtains, he's like it's Saturday so most of the places are closed and they will do the best they can. I never heard back from them (and what hotel does not carry some extra?). The toilette was not that nice, water would not drain easily from the shower when I lifted the drain stop a little it was DISGUSTING and did not help the problem. The toilet if you look from the top is as clean as they can get it, but from the room you can see rims of disgusting stuff . We did not use their TV but if it is important for you, the screen was smaller than my 13 inch laptop screen. The room smelled bad, not something you could not live with but bad none the less.
On the bright side, breakfast is included in the room price. It was really good (with bad coffee) and with lots of variety. Gondola ride is just 1 minute walk from the hotel. The mini bar items were free for the first time (including two beers), but they would charge you for refills. The Aliguana stop, Zattare, is 3-5 minutes straight walk from the hotel which was really convenient. We took Aliguana from VCE, stopped at Zattare and walked to the hotel. It's about 1.5 hours boat ride from the hotel to the airport. Air conditioner worked fine.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the elegant "Sestiere" (neighbourhood) Dorsoduro Agli Alboretti is a fine family three star hotel meticulously run by Mrs. Anna Linguerri, helped by a dedicated staff, some of whom have been working here for many years. Enjoy the quiet, relaxing atmosphere of an ancient Venetian house, placed in a strategic position to visit the most interesting sites of Venice. The hotel is in front of the Accademia Galleries, very few minutes from Guggenheim Collection, St. Mark’s Square and Rialto bridge. It is near public transports for the City, the airport and the islands (Murano, Burano, Torcello) and therefore easily reachable also from Piazzale Roma (car and bus terminal) and railway station. All the 23 rooms at disposal are furnished in 19th century or navy style and have been recently redecorated. They are fitted with private services, satellite TV, wireless Internet connection, mini bar and air conditioning in Summer. They overlook either the large street Rio Terà Foscarini or some private inner gardens among which the courtyard of the hotel where, in Summer, breakfast is served. A lift makes easy to reach the four floors of the building and the terrace on top where guests can sit and relax. The curious name "Agli Alboretti" comes from the "small trees" that were planted along the street Rio Terrà Foscarini at the end of 19th century when the canal was filled in and transformed into a street. Venetians are not accustomed to have trees along the "calli" and they started to call it "the street of the small trees." ... more less
