The key thing about the Ala is its location which is great as is close to St Mark's and the Accademia area and crucially, Giglio waterbus station from where you can get the transfer to the airport. The staff were efficient and friendly and had good knowledge of the area. Air conditioning in our room and the hotel was such a lifesaver as Venice was baking hot during our stay. The breakfast was good I thought, although the breakfast area a little cramped for the number of guests in the hotel at the time. What was irritating was that when things like milk and juice ran out the staff had to be asked to replace stuff and did not keep an eye such things. We stayed only the 3 nights and one of considerations when choosing the Ala was interconnecting rooms as we have two young daughters. They were able to meet this requirement with both rooms of a decent size amd standard. Overall I think this hotel is great for a short stay but if we were planning a longer trip I would definitely splash out for a hotel with a pool because Venice is so hot.
