Having very much enjoyed our first stay at the Hotel ai due Fanali last year, my wife and I returned for the start of a twenty-day trip this summer. All the superlatives in our previous review still apply, and we can now add "consistency". The ai due Fanali continues to be our hotel of choice in Venice.
Location - perfect for us. It's a short walk to the train station and the bus plaza, and is convenient to a vaporetto stop. It is in a Venetian neighborhood rather than a touristy area, and is a ten-minute walk from two terrific restaurants - Il Refolo (great salads and wonderful pizza) and La Zucca (excellent vegetarian dishes and good meat dishes as well) - both of which are located near our favorite campo in all of Venice, San Giacomo del Oro.
The hotel itself is charming and quite reasonably priced. On both stays our room had a view of the Grand Canal. The room was completely clean, the bathroom was small but not cramped (with a small tub with an excellent showerhead), and the breakfast was excellent with good coffee and set us up nicely for the whole day. The staff was terrific, and made advance reservations for us at both of the above-mentioned restaurants. This was important, as we arrived on the third weekend in July during a major citywide festival.
My wife and I do like to walk, so it was a treat to actually enter and leave the touristy part of Venice. For those not so inclined, St. Mark's is just a vaporetto ride away.
We very much look forward to our next stay in Venice - which will be at the Hotel ai due Fanali.
