For anyone who has researched hotel prices in Venice, Hotel Dalla Mora provides a great price! The hotel is simple, quiet and clean. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was rolls and coffee. It's not gourmet, but it's nice to get something in your belly before heading out into Venice. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's a good location. We left Piazzale Roma from the southeast corner and had to cross only 3 bridges with our bags to get there. It was certainly manageable. We retraced our steps the next day to get back to P. Roma and board the People Mover to get to our cruise ship.
We traveled in early October, and we slept with the window open. It was perfect. We were in the main hotel on the ground level with our window directly on the canal, and the soft noises of the water and boats as the city woke up was great (room 2, I think). If you were wanting to sleep in, our room might have been a bit noisy. We were eager to get out and see Venice, so it was perfect for us.
The in-room bathroom, was small, but clean and adequate. A larger person might have some trouble in the shower. The room is also pretty small, but with Venice at your door, who cares about hotel room space?!? There was room under the bed for our bags and a chair and some side tables in the room. Being on the ground floor, I was surprised that I didn't see any evidence of flooding damage. It was very clean.
We loved our stay, and wouldn't hesitate to return. We hope we have a chance to stay there again someday!
If you are a practical traveler who wants somewhere safe and clean to lay your head at night, and don't want to pay for lots of extra amenities that you won't use, Dalla Mora is for you.
