My boyfriend and I spent 4 days in alla vite dorata and it was amazing! Best stay we had in Italy!
The hotel is near the center, but not on the middle of the tourist circuit, which makes a great place to relax as well!
The breakfast is excellent and the service impeccable! We'll definitely stay again there next time we visit Venice!

Every now and then when you travel you find a place that is just perfect. This definitely is one of those places. Its small and personal (only 6 rooms) and although we did not have a canal facing room it was not a problem as all we did was sleep in the room.
I was concerned that once leaving the hotel I would never find my way back. It only happened once, as we left the map behind. BUT getting lost in Venice is the thing to do, and finally getting back to the hotel is amazing. Put your stuff in your room and then go and sit on the little deck on the canal and watch the Venetians glide past you.
Around the corner from the hotel is a little shop that sells wine from big vats. Take your own bottle and they just top it up. If you buy the Prosecco its ice cold. Then go back to the deck and have a glass of wine and watch the Venetians again. A little word of advice here, if you do sit on the deck, DO NOT LET THE DOOR CLOSE as it cannot be opened from the outside. We spent an hour sitting waiting for somebody to come and open the door. I t was sundown and nobody was around. Hahahahahaha......thank goodness for the wine.
There is a little fridge in the room to keep things cold. The breakfast was more than adequate. The beds super comfy, but check out the little spotlights under the bed. I do not know what they are there for.
We had 3 fantastic days in one of the most incredible cities in the world. The hotel is in a perfect location.
GETTING THERE: Flew into Venice airport. Took the water bus (6 minute walk from the airport) Take the blue line. get off 2nd stop at FONDAMENTE NOVE. Walk 400m and you are at the hotel. Our friends arrived at the station and took a water taxi directly to the hotel. Access right on the canal (check out the pic of them arriving).
We Loved it......thanks Aleksandra

Room Tip: If you do not get a canal view room it really does not matter. Just go and sit outside on the beauti...

Everything about this quaint little B&B was fantastic. The owner, Alexsandra was extremely helpful and welcoming. She met us in Apostoli Square as we'd walked from the Venice train station and got lost (the google map put us in the wrong location so pay attention to this!). Breakfast views were especially breathtaking. Great location to the Rialto Market and water bus system (easy access to the airport). Close to great shopping and dining. A must stay!

We stayed in the apartment owned by Alla Vite Dorata as the hotel was full. There were definite positives, including the location (off the beaten track), the fact that it was spacious, Aleksandra was gracious enough to meet us very late at night to let us in after a long journey. It was also very clean. We felt we missed out on the touches we would not doubt have got at the hotel though. There was no welcome pack with information on Venice - and it would have been nice to have some milk in the fridge. Although it is self catering, little things like that would be aprreciated. Also, it was very noisy around us in the morning - but that didn't bother us too much. If we returned we would want to stay in the B&B.

Excellent Hotel, probbaly the only hotel in Venice where there is a nice little balcony over the canal where you can sit and watch the gondala's going by. Great service from Aleksandra and her family. I would highly reccomend this hotel on all accounts. It is only a 10 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge and all other sites of Venice. the water taxi dropped us off right at the balcony.


Best hotel of our 4 week Italy trip .. sorry we only stayed 3 nights.

My husband and I stayed with Aleksandra for 3 nights. The hotel was in a great location in a quiet area yet close to the grand canal and shopping. The bedroom & bath were immaculate and nicely furnished. Aleksandra was extremely helpful giving us information about places to eat and how to get to different areas in venice. The breakfast was delicious & consisted of coffee or tea, fruit juice, yogurt, fruit, cereal, crescents, ham, salami, cheese and other small sweets. I would highly recommend staying here and we hope to return to stay there again.

I stayed in this hotel, in a three bed room with friends.

I loved this hotel and cannot recommend it enough. It's in the Cannaregio area of Venice, right on a canal and feels less touristy than other areas we visited. When we arrived, the lady who works there was super friendly and helpful - a lovely welcome.
Our room was light, cool and beautifully decorated. As soon as I opened the window, a gondola went by and I got a wink from a gondolier. I was a happy bunny! :)

The hotel is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The area is great and you can wander anywhere in Venice, finding your way back easily. There is a small supermarket nearby and plenty of restaurant options. Breakfast is simple but lovely and served in a pleasant dining area - the most coveted table is on a small veranda on the canal, but you've got be early to get that one!!

Also, we didn't need to use it, but I noticed that the hotel has good access for wheelchair users and, as all of the rooms are on ground-floor level, I expect there are rooms that would also be suitable.

Overall, this place helped make our stay in Venice a very enjoyable one. I would highly recommend this hostel and when I return to Venice, I will try to stay here again :)
