The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

Baka, yes there is an elevator that goes to the 2nd floor and about 5 steps to climb to get to the floor & our room had a walk in shower. If you get off on the Giglio water bus exit, walk about 50 meters you are at the hotel. No bridges to climb. It's very easy to get to.

The simple answer is yes. From reception, the lift is only a few feet away. We both had a case weighing 18kg. There was no problem whatsoever getting to our room on the second floor. I'm sure you have read my review on the Hotel Ala. We couldn't' fault the hotel at all. Hope this helps.
