Yes, the rooms are small and the breakfast modest, but the reason to not stay is because the rooms were simply not suitable and the reception staff was unaccommodating. My family of 5 had reasonable expectations after reading reviews, but did not expect a "bad experience". Unfortunately, the old bed mattresses were not comfortable enough to get a restful sleep. Furthermore, we were unable to shower after a long day of touring Venice because the "hot" water was not temperate enough to put your body in, which is unacceptable at any hotel in my opinion. Additionally, they would not cancel our second night's reservation, even though there was no way we could stay another night. There are so many lovely and interesting hotels in Venice, the Agli Alborettii is DEFINITELY NOT one of them.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the elegant "Sestiere" (neighbourhood) Dorsoduro Agli Alboretti is a fine family three star hotel meticulously run by Mrs. Anna Linguerri, helped by a dedicated staff, some of whom have been working here for many years. Enjoy the quiet, relaxing atmosphere of an ancient Venetian house, placed in a strategic position to visit the most interesting sites of Venice. The hotel is in front of the Accademia Galleries, very few minutes from Guggenheim Collection, St. Mark’s Square and Rialto bridge. It is near public transports for the City, the airport and the islands (Murano, Burano, Torcello) and therefore easily reachable also from Piazzale Roma (car and bus terminal) and railway station. All the 23 rooms at disposal are furnished in 19th century or navy style and have been recently redecorated. They are fitted with private services, satellite TV, wireless Internet connection, mini bar and air conditioning in Summer. They overlook either the large street Rio Terà Foscarini or some private inner gardens among which the courtyard of the hotel where, in Summer, breakfast is served. A lift makes easy to reach the four floors of the building and the terrace on top where guests can sit and relax. The curious name "Agli Alboretti" comes from the "small trees" that were planted along the street Rio Terrà Foscarini at the end of 19th century when the canal was filled in and transformed into a street. Venetians are not accustomed to have trees along the "calli" and they started to call it "the street of the small trees." ... more less
