“We feel lucky that we found this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I booked this hotel on the strength of the trip advisor reviews. My wife also liked the location when we were looking at a map of Venice as it is extremely convenient to the water bus stop at Rialto Bridge and also en route to St Marks Square. For such a good location I thought the hotel tried very hard to be very good.
We found the decor to be in very good order, with a very clean fresh feeling to the hotel. The breakfast was very good and the girls serving worked very hard. As such, it is fair to say that service might not always be instantaneous. The choice of food and the quality of it is fine.
The little bar in the foyer was very pleasant and convenient. The room that we stayed in was lovely and much better than I had dreaded as I had been led to believe that space is at an absolute premium in Venice.
All in all, my wife and I would be very happy to stay at this hotel again.

I think all of the other reviews on here speak for the hotel as well as I could. One thing I'd add is that by booking 4-6 months in advance you can get some really good prices.

I'd also recommend a trip to Alfredo's pasta bar for lunch. Excellent pasta, friendly atmosphere and a free glass of red wine.

The hotel is a few minutes from the Rialto bridge, but in a side road off the main tourist thoroughfare so there isn't a mob constantly passing the window. The room we stayed in was a reasonable size, well appointed with a comfortable bed and a great shower. The location is great - pretty much in centre of Venice and close to the vaporetto stop, and the staff were very friendly with good English and a helpful attitude. We asked for restaurant recommendations on two evenings and both were excellent choices within a short walk of the hotel. We would certainly come back to this hotel on a return trip, hopefully with less rain next time!

One minute from the Rialto bridge, this hotel is the ideal location for your Venice holiday. This is a small, friendly yet highly professionally-run hotel a few metres from the Grand Canal. Staff are helpful and will advise on days out, transport, and restaurants. We had room 402 which was small-ish but comfortable and cosy. The room was maintained superbly - linen and towels were changed daily and the bedroom and bathroom were cleaned to a very high standard. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast is very good - the room is pleasant, the service formal but thoughtful and the food good. This hotel is not a luxury or highly indulgent experience, but represents extremely good value for money and I recommend it unhestitatingly.

We stayed at the A La Commedia for 5 nights over Easter, it couldn't be in a better position for all the main attractions, the staff are very courteous and helpful, the room was lovely comfortable and clean, breakfast was fair as continental breakfasts go, all in all would stay there again with no problem..

Whilst this wasn't our first time in Venice it was our first stay at Hotel A La Commedia. Our previous stay was also in a four star hotel, however the difference between the two was chalk and cheese. The hotel itself is well appointed and the rooms certainly spacious with quality furnishing and fitments.
However where the hotel scores above its rivals is the friendliness, knowledge and unwavering commitment of the staff to help and assist. No request appeared too much trouble, from advice we actually found restaurants off the beaten track that served good quality, non tourist food.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Venice is a wonderful city which we will return to and I strongly suspect we'll also be returning to this lovely hotel. Incidentally Emmanulle at the bar makes the most delicious hot chocolate!
