“Excellent staff, clean room, delicious & plentiful breakfast, close to everything.”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

The staff were wonderful, especially the luggage handlers. Mattress was a little lumpy but I still slept well. Full breakfast buffet was delicious and plentiful. Closer to Rialto vaporetto stop than San Marco - less than 5 minutes walk and no bridge to cross - important when transporting suitcases. The room was great and canal view was as advertised. Bistrot di Venise restaurant at doorstep was wonderful - fantastic food & great service.

Just a few blocks north of St. Mark's square, and a few blocks south of the Rialto. The staff was very solicitous and helpful. But be warned: we were on the 4th floor (5th floor in the US) and that is a lot of steps! Overall, we were very pleased.

Room Tip: Try to get a lower floor. Ours was advertised as a canal view, but you had to really crane your nec...

A short walk from St. Mark's Square, this boutique hotel allows you to imagine you are living in the renaissance time but with today's comforts. Clean and well kept. Friendly and excellent service.
I would without a doubt use this hotel again on my next trip to Venice.

Room Tip: I would most certainly ask for a room overlooking the canal. One can hear the gondoliers go by as th...

Stayed at the hotel for four nights. Close to the Vaporetto #1 Rialto, Piazza de San Marco, and walking distance to most of the sights. The staff was very helpful: carrying luggage up three flights and Vlana gave great restaurant recommendations and even walked us to one that we were unable to find! Rooms were small but very clean. Breakfast had a great selection including eggs and bacon! Would definitely stay there again!!!

We were extremely satisfied by our staying at Al Gambero. Cozy and beautiful hotel, wonderful location, hospitable personal, tasty breakfast, and so on :) The price could be a little bit lower... But it's Venice ;)

This hotel was very central to everything we needed. Staff were very helpful and even assisted carrying bags up and down stairs. We had a canal view room which was a nice touch. Loved watching the gonaldas go by from our window.
