FROM VENICE SAN MARCO AIRPORT: Walk out the front entrance of the airport terminal and turn left. You will see a long walkway with a white arching awning above most of the walkway. Follow this walkway for a long distance. There will be some signage posted along the way re: the docks. The dock is on the left and is obvious once you arrive at the end of the walkway. Walk to the last hut along the piers where you will find a sign "Alilaguna" on the bottom of the hut, facing you as you walk toward it. Buy a ticket at the hut (one way or R/T) for the Alilaguna BLUE LINE to Fondamente Nove (was 15 Euro one way per person at the time of this writing). Once you board the water bus, your first stop will be Murano. Continue to the second stop, F.te Nove (Fondamente Nove). As you walk off the small dock platform, if you look to the left, you will see steps going over a bridge. Do not go this direction as this is the wrong direction. Instead, turn right and walk about 15 paces. You will turn left onto the first walkway. At the time of this writing there is no label on the street - no street sign, however, there is a house address in faded black numerals of 4886 above the doorway. As you walk down this "calle" you will see Tortuga Pizza rather immediately on the right with some tables out in front. As you walk further ahead, you will find a large white church on the left with ornate old cement looking scuptures on the roofline and tall white columns. There is a sign just to the left of the front door that reads "Chiesa di S. Maria Assunta (Gesuiti). Walk about the same distance further down this calle and you will see steps directly in front of you that will cross a canal. Do NOT cross the canal, rather you will see a small black old fashioned public water fountain/faucet on the right of the walkway. Turn right at this corner, and walk straight ahead following along the canal for about 120 paces. You will take the first bridge on the left. As you cross over the bridge, you will be on Calle Zanardi. As you walk down Calle Zanardi, there will be a slight zig-zag in the street (left then right). Follow the street to a bridge. On the left before the bridge, there will be a sign that reads Ponte S. Andrea / Calle Zanardi. Go over the bridge. Continue down the street to the very end. It looks like you will run into the canal. The hotel is on the right although it does not have much signage that it is a hotel. There is a UNA HOTEL sign above the door and an address of 4173 to the left of the doorway. You have made it...
We had room 204. It was spottlessly clean, 15 foot ceilings, A/C works perfect, spacious, has a double length balcony (one of only a few in the hotel). This room overlooks the "calle" you walked down to the hotel and you can see the canal. Rooms 202 and 203 overlook the canal. Room 203 is a suite that overlooks the canal with a balcony, however we were not able to look into them to see the size. The hotel is very well cleaned and appointed and the entire hotel is cooled nicely.
The breakfasts consist of scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausages along with cereals, yogart, and other cheeses, small pastries, fruit, and juices. Various coffees are served. There are very modest - minimal snacks served from 2:30 to 10PM with wine served with small sandwiches from 6-8PM.
