My two daughters, grandaughter and I recently returned from a very enjoyable 12-day Meditteraean Cruise which originated in Venice. My granddaughter made the reservations and was already there when we arrived. Safely to say she couldn't have chosen a better hotel - our rooms were decorated in Venetian style, spacious and overlooked the canal which kept them cool at night. Also, there was free Wi-fi connection. Thank you to the staff for providing breakfast in the courtyard that consisted of fresh fruit, fresh pastries, cereals etc, more than you could eat.
Many thanks to Walter and Sandro for their kindness and going the last mile for us during our stressful time - it will never be forgotten....not going into details but you know what I'm referring to!
Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo, located in the heart of Venice, occupy two levels of a finely retored building in a lived-in-neighbourhood that is rich in history. There are no elevators; however, there is always help with baggage.
For those of you who are interested, it is easy to find. From the airport we took the airport bus and then the #1 river bus to San Stae Vaparretto stop. Once there, the hotel is a couple of minutes walk and within walking distance of Rialto and San Marco. This hotel is highly recommended!!
Tip: It was very convenient for us to take a water taxi to the ship because it came directly to our hotel door and directly to the ship dock.
Many thanks to walter, Sandro and their staff for helping make our stay in Venice a very memorable one. We look forward to return again to enjoy your wonderful hospitality and the beauty of Venice.
