“Good location Agli alboretti”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2005

Just come back from a stay at the Agli Alboretti in Venice. V. good location and v. easy to find. Rooms a good size and clean. Only gripe is on their website they say they have air con but don't. Which was ok for now but not in the height of summer. Staff v. friendly and helpful. All in all a very good reasonable price hotel

We went to the restaurant in April 2002 and and had a wonderful time. Went again in December 2004 and what a change: the waiters were charmless and seemed to have the attitude "not more tourists". The food was OK but very overpriced. We were so disappointed and will not return.

A party of 3 stayed at the hotel March 14 & 15 2004. We came in early on boat and the hotel did not open until 7am. They were very accomadating and although our room was not ready invited us to their breakfast and upgraded our room at no cost. The room was adequate in size for 3 women, the bathroom was very small and no shower only a small tub with a handheld shower. They were very friendly and great location to the canal and into the city.

I found several references to the Alboretti online and in travel magazines that I subscribe to (Conde Nast, for example), so my wife and I booked a room here for a week.

What follows is pretty much a stream of consciousness brain-dump...I'm making no attempt to organize my thoughts :)

The hotel includes a restaurant, "bar", and two "lounge" areas (One right off the restaurant which I think doubles as the bar, and one on the 2nd floor which acts more as a library). Common areas were small, but well maintained -- as was our room, #118. This room faced out onto a small courtyard and had an unexceptional view. From what I read elsewhere, all rooms are about the same size and of the same quality except for #119, which is extremely dark and should be avoided.

Service at the hotel was good -- the staff was friendly and most spoke some English. During our stay my wife managed to catch a 48-hour stomach flu of some sort, and the front desk was able to get a doctor for us on short notice.

Also, on our last day, we encountered Venice's well-known "Aqua Alta": Water was up to right below the knee on the streets, and the hotel's lobby and restaurant had 3-4 inches of water in them. The hotel served everyone breakfast in their rooms and lent us Wellies so we could (try to) stay dry while getting our bags out to a waiting water taxi.

In my opinion, the Alboretti's location and relatively low price (for Venice anyway -- 130 Euros/night), were its main selling points. While a stone's throw away from the Accademia, the area around the hotel didn't seem overrun by tourists like us. There were two relatively inexpensive trattorias nearby and an Internet cafe just over the Accademia Bridge in Campo San Stefano. You'll find a Vaparetto stop right in front of the Accademia for the days you don't feel like walking to where you need to go. You can walk 5 minutes west, and you'll find yourself in what appeared to be as much of a "local" area of town as you can get, populated by students.

So to sum things up --

Room - Average: Small, but clean.
Service - Good: Helpful, if not a touch disorganized...but what do you expect in Italia?
Location - Superb: Convenient but not too busy
Value - Excellent.

This small hotel, is very quaintly tucked in behind the Accadamia bridge and so is very convenient for the vaporetto and within hopping distance from the Guggenheim. At €145 a night it was averagely priced for Venice but it was still overpriced for the room we got, during a weekend in August this year. It was very very small and smelled a bit peculiar! The bathroom was like a public cubicle in size and was decorated like one too. We had a small little balcony overlooking the back of the hotel which was pleasant to sit out on but not enough to recommend a return visit. One of the main reasons we booked Agli Alboretti was because of the reviews about its apparently lovely restaurant - unfortunately we never got to try it as it is closed for the month of August.... Overall I have enjoyed better and cheaper hotels in Venice in the past and would urge readers to look elsewhere.

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
