I stayed at Al Ponte Antico for a few nights in June before leaving on a cruise. The location is very convenient to vaporetto stops, San Marco Square and the Rialto area. Matteo, the owner, was so friendly and helpful-as was the rest of his small staff. Everyone spoke excellent English. I have been to Venice several times, but for first time visitors, they seemed to do a good job of explaining things travelers find complicated like how to validate your vaporetto ticket, etc. We took a water taxi from the airport. It was 110 Euro, but if you have a lot of bags, plan ahead for the expense since Al Ponte Antico has a private dock right off of the lobby and it is far easier than public transport. At the airport, there is a desk to book your water taxi just outside of customs. It is the same price no matter which taxi they call. The hotel ordered another water taxi to take us to the cruise pier-it arrived right on time and Matteo helped get us and the bags into the boat. Breakfast was delicious and included in our rate. Wi-fi was also included, you just have to ask at the desk for a code for each device you want to log on with.
If I ever return to Venice, I will certainly stay at Al Ponte Antico again!
