Hotel Alla Fava overlooks Campo della Fava, a small square where Casanova used to meet his young lovers. In the square, the church of Santa Maria della Fava hosts some famous works by Giambattista Tiepolo and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. Hotel Alla Fava is one minute from the famous Rialto Bridge, one of the main sights in Venice hosting the rich and colourful fruit and vegetable market which enlivens the heart of the city every day. St Mark’s Square and the Bridge of Sighs are also at walking distance. The main public transport hub on the Grand Canal is 3 minutes away and connects to the main sights, to easily reach the islands in the Laguna: Murano, Burano and Torcello. When staying at Hotel Alla Fava, everything Venice has to offer is just a short walk away.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.

We booked and paid months ago direct through their website and arrived today to no one! We waited until the time I had estimated our arrival (despite their advertising 24hr desk) and have had to find an alternative. Very upsetting to stand in the cold for an hour and not have

We booked a room 3 months on advance and wrote that it was our honeymoon. When we got there we were surprised to see we got a room with two separate beds and no bathroom or shower. The bathroom and shower are in one room and the whole floor has to share them. Later we learned

Rooms are quite small, with average air con. Shower has pressure issues that go up and down. They ask you to leave your room at reception which is weird. Staff could be a little nicer also, not horrible just not great. Great location. It ended up being situated in our

Booked a room with window overlooking the canal which made the spacious room (and spacious bathroom) all that more special. Great location about 5 min walk from the rialto bridge and good value for a city such as Venice (with a view)

Hate to disappoint you but there are no roads in Venice so you can't drive a car! Also consider a different hotel!

Dear Clients From Marco Polo Airport the easiest way is to take the waterbus line ALILAGUNA "ARANCIO" that in one hour will bring you in Rialto just 5 minutes walking distance from us. Please refer to the ALILAGUNA WEBSITE for the timetable Do not hesitate to contact us if you will need or assistance Kind regards Paolo

Hi Naomi, It's probably best to search this hotel on a booking website such as Expedia, trivago etc. to find availability and pricing.

Good afternoon, thank you for your request. At the moment we have available a room with 3 beds and view on a typical Venetian square, at the PREPAID NOT REFUNDABLE rate of € 190,00 per room, per night (already discounted price), with breakfast included. We kindly ask you to send us a request directly to our e-mail address, that you find in our web site, as here we cannot write it. Best regards

"room overlooking canal"
"Canal view is away from pedestrian noise but not the water binmen!"
"Good price for the location, breakfast can be a bit costy but as with everything in Venice."
"There will be some noise anyway because the hotel is very central. Bring ear plugs!"
"Don't book here."
