We arrived at the hotel mid afternoon after catching the vaporetto to the stop 50 meters from the hotel. I had emailed the hotel prior to our arrival and asked if possible for a room with a view, as it was our 25th wedding anniversary and first trip to Venice.
To our surprise we were upgraded to a suite in the hotel on the very top floor and what a beautiful room it was ( I have attached pictures of the suite).The hotel is spotlessly clean and oozes quality, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly and I can vouch for the good comments about this hotel on Tripadvisor (they are all true).Breakfast buffet was excellent and had a wide variety of food, possibly the nicest we had on our entire 4 week trip. The hotel itself is in an unbeatable position and close to everything; we asked to make a reservation at the family run restaurant a short walk from the hotel. It sits directly on a canal and as you eat gondolas pass by with singing gondoliers and create the ultimate dining experience, the food and service where excellent. I really couldn't fault this hotel and only wish that we could have stayed longer. I could keep going on and on about how great this place is but I would only be repeating what others have already written .If you want the real Venice experience DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR and stay at the Hotel Ala.
