Another posted last year wrote really great directions to get to the hotel (which is confusing)....I took it upon myself to re-write these directions, and add more explanation where needed. I hope this helps everyone!

Everyone arrives in Venice from one of two areas, the train station, or the airport. Either way you want to find the boat Vaporetto 1 or 2, and make sure it stops at Rialto. There is another stop called Rialto Mercato…do not stop here! Just get off at the plain old Rialto.

When you get off the boat and the ramp, turn right and walk for a few hundred feet. On the right will be the canal, and the left will be various restaurants. Look for Ristorante Omnibus and another called Self Service. There are tons of restaurants called Self Service, so make sure you first find Omnibus, and then find the Self Service. By Self Service there is an alleyway right by Hotel La Commedia (look up and you'll see it). Walk down this alleyway for a minute or so until you get to a small square where there are two small alleys in front of you. Choose the one on the left.

Walk down here for less than a minute, and you'll see Hotel Serenissima, and at the end of the alley you'll see the Giorgio Armani Shop. Please note that you should use this square and this shop as your compass whenever you go out. This is an easy square to find, and when you see this store, it's VERY EASY to get to the hotel.

When you get to the Armani Shop, stop. To the left is Hotel Bonvecchiati, and to the right there is a small alleyway. Go through this alley. When walking through look towards the right, and there will be a small entrance into another alleyway. If you go under an archway that says Sotta Portego De La Malvasia, you went too far. But while in this alleyway you'll again see the small passageway on the right stating "Malvasia", and then "Sotto Portego Del Forno Vechhio". You will see the hotel then.

To be honest, this seems very difficult, however it's very easy if you follow these instructions. Again, 10 minutes or so from the Rialto. Also, once you get there and start to explore, this is VERY CLOSE to St. Mark's.

We stayed at this hotel on our honeymoon and could not be happier. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the hotel is within a 3-5inute walk of San Marco square. The location alone makes this hotel memorable, and when you add in the staff, pricing, and the rooms, this is the best hotel in Venice.

All the great things said before are true. Breakfast included lunchmeat, scrambled and hard boiled eggs, 3 cereals, rolls and toast, yogurt, fruit--kept us full until late afternoon. Location is awesome, bed is really perfect, and staff is very helpful. Highly recommended.

We loved this place -- had a room with a little room attached. Staff is great, breakfast is wonderful. Location is great. DON"T forget to bring the directions they send to you or you will not find this place! We forgot, and used "google maps" which didn't work -- we wandered around for an hour totally lost!

Little gem of a hotel in central Venice, halfway between the Rialto Bridge and St Marks Square; 4 mins walk to either. Set in a quiet courtyard away from the crowds. Clean, tidy, safe, beautiful rooms, superb breakfast, great coffee, free wi-fi, fantastic staff...I could go on. OK, so you don't get a room over the canal, but frankly you wouldn't want the noise and chaos of one of the those (or the smell). The Al Codega (the 'lamp-carrier') is the place to stay whether it is a romantic weekend away or a family vacation.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Calle Goldini can be a little noisy with weekend revelers in the early hours, but fine during the week.
