That´s what we wanted to test when we have booked a three nights stay at Al Ponte Mocenigo.
We knew Venice from various day visits - but had always wanted to stay overnight in the city -
to get the real Venice feeling. And I can tell you: it is worth it. To make it short - all is true what
is written about this hotel. It is lovely on many ways. We had booked a standard room and it was
No. 44 in the annex. It was huge, clean and decorated in a way, that we felt "venetian" at once.
To have had a view on "our own" little canal was a special treat. We liked breakfast a lot.
It was continental with a very tasty fruit salad, yoghurt, muffins, croissants (apricot),rolls and
applestrudel - and wonderful coffee - in your choice. The stuff is absolutly freindly and helpful.
To get to and from the hotel from the airport, we had tested to different ways. On arrival we
did the bus/vaporetto version (12,-- EUR) and on the way back we took the alilaguna boot
(16,-- EUR as we paid on the boat). We liked the alilaguna version better. It is very convenient
as the San Stae stop is just around the corner - a little minus is, that you have to walk on arrival at the airport stop about 5 minutes to the airport building. But it is an easy walk.
If you are interested in modern Art, Ca`Pesaro is only two minutes walk away from the hotel.
We can highly recommend it. And of corse a dinner at nearby La Zucca is almost a must...
But nothing can beat a nightly (when all day tourists are gone) walk after dinner to
Piazza San Marco and than a trip on a vaporetto on the Canale Grande back to the hotel.
It is so wonderful - it´s hard to descibe - come and get the feeling!!
