A lovely appointed hotel! This hotel had all the features of a gorgeous hotel. Upon arrival one is greeted with efficiency & humour which puts one at ease after a long journey. When we went up to our room it was enchanting to hear the gondoliers singing opera and various Italian songs while travelling up the canal. We were able to relax in our room with its sumptuous Venetian decore. The bathroom was ample and was well appointed. We found lovely toiletries if needed. Ample shower space unlike other hotels we stayed in throughout Italy. The room was sufficient for our needs however one would have to request a different category of room if preference was for size. Breakfast was included in our hotel rate. The sala di pranzo where we took breakfast each morning was well serviced by staff and the breakfast items on offer catered for all food preferences delivering wonderful hot cappuccinos on the guests' request. The front desk staff were always helpful with enquiries on catching ferries, restaurants etc.. We had a lovely stay. However I found it a little noisy with guests returning to their rooms after a late night out. The external noise from people walking home after their late nights out was noisy which often went as late 4a.m. I would suggest another room if at all possible if one is a light sleeper. The location was excellent for location to high end fashion boutiques and exclusive home decore shops and restaurants catering for all budgets. We ate at Vino/Vino which was moderately priced and excellent Venetian fare. The staff were very helpful with dining selections and wine local and other provincial wines. The hotel was 500 metres from San Marco's Piazza and to get the ferry 50 metres down an alley (un vicolo) near Hotel Ala.
We would highly recommend Best Western Hotel Ala, Venice, Italy to all travellers for service and comfort.
