We stayed 3 nights at the hotel, it is well located, the staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are well equipped and kept clean. Breakfast is well done, and the American Bar next door is great. Our only real complaint is with the internet service. It was ok at times, but useless at other times.

I use Trip Advisor whenever deciding where to stay. The reviews for Hotel Ala reassured me this would be a good choice, and it definitely was.
Overview:
- Very clean and attractive hotel & room; quiet, especially at night (for sleeping)
- Comfortable, large bed
- Good quality linens in bathroom, including face cloths (unusual for Europe)
- Friendly, efficient and helpful staff
- Prime location; easy access to/from vaporetto or alilaguna stop
- Walked to all sights; only used vaporetto for transport to train station when leaving
- Wonderful breakfast! Amazing selection and excellent food quality
- Had a room overlooking the canal; watched gondolas gliding below us. Most evenings, we heard them singing, too. Very romantic...but if you prefer, close the windows and you can barely hear them.

Did not explore the other islands (Murano, Burano, etc). as this was our first visit to Venice; we only had 3 nights there.

As we are 60+ years old, it's unlikely we will visit Venice again, but I would book this hotel again without hesitation, and have already referred it to others.

Room tip: Request a room with canal view. You'll need to walk up stairs, so if that's a problem, make sure you inquire about alternatives.

This hotel has an excellent location only a few minutes from the Gigilo water bus dock with no bridges to cross. The daily included breakfast was very good with lots of selection of hot and cold breakfast items. The room was spacious, very clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable with high quality linens. We especially enjoyed the roof top deck to relax after a long day of sightseeing. I would highly recommend this hotel and definitely stay again. Getting to the hotel from the airport was easy using the Aliliguna Orange Line. It was also easy to get to the cruise terminal using the water bus (7,50 euro/person) and the People Mover (2,50 euro/person) - much cheaper than a private water taxi for 125 euros.

This hotel is well located, close to Academia Bridge and roughly equidistant from Piazza San Marco and Rialto Bridge. It is less than 100m from Santa Maria al Giglio for the #1 vaparetto, traghetto to the opposite bank of the Grand Canal, and the Alilaguna ferry (Orange line) to the airport. The hotel itself is comfortable and very clean. Breakfast is usually included in the price and the buffet selection is excellent and available until 10:45 in the morning. The adjoining American Bar is a fun place for the evening if you are not going out to the many nearby restaurants.

Excellent hotel and location. Rooms small but delightful and breakfast buffet was delicious. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Had room overlooking the canal but unfortunately I am rather short so only my husband could see it. Was within easy walking distance of St Marks Square and very close to a vaporetto stop.
