“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Reasonably priced. Terrific location near shops and St Mark's square. Easy to get to by water taxi. WONDERFUL full breakfast. Kind and accommodating hotel staff. Charming view over canal; gondolas passing by with families serenaded by musicians and singers right beneath my window! I highly recommend this hotel.

Just a minute walk to San Marco, lots of prople around but very quite at night. Easy walk to all tourist destinations, or to a water taxi to get you to where you want to go. Lots of restaurants around. It's an older hotel but the rooms are clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. Prime location for a couple of days in Venice.

Venice trip way more than expected! Hotel is in a great location, rooms are clean, bathroom is spacious. Roof top, gives a great view of Venice! Front desk staff is friendly. Breakfast was very nice, although the restaurant staff did not come around to clear tables. Bar was good, to end the evening. Hotel has elevator, but you still have to use stairs, to get to some of rooms. We asked for water taxi, and front desk was very helpful and also asked if we wanted to share the ride to the port with other guest that we also heading to the port.

We stayed here 3 nights on vacation . The location as stated in other reviews is great. Close to many sites and next to to the water water bus-vaperoretto-so you can go go any where . The service was great with Ray in the bar wonderful and Stephan at front desk especially helpful. Our rooms were on the small canal along the back where the gondolas came by during the day and the singers would croon giving it a wonderful ambiance. Rooms 115-118. The breakfast was good. The hotel was spotless. The staff was always helpful. The rooms are small but the price was right the only complaint is the beds are hard like sleeping on a rack . Maybe they can improve them over time. I think it is a good deal for the price

Stayed there 5 nights . Room and bathroom were spacious and had all the amenities. Breaskfast buffet was very good. Location was very good easily accessible to Vaparetto. Easy walk to San Marco or Accademia Bridge. Wifi was a bit problematic. It cut on and off in my room I could always gets connected if I held my phone through the door into the corridor. The men at the desk blamed me or my phone but I didn't have such problems elsewhere in 5 weeks in Italy. My room was over the bar, so it was a bit noisy after 11pm.
Definitely would stay there again.

Spent three nights in Ala hotel very easy to find from Marco polo airport,orange line with alilaguna boats get off at Gilio stop 50mtrs flat walk up narrow alleyway to hotel.hotel room was clean but on top floor,there is a lift up from reception,but then 4flights of steps to negotiate,the hotel has a rooftop terrace which for some strange reason closes at 5 o'clock as the bar on the ground floor opens,missed opportunity I would say?still really enjoyed our 3night stay,breakfast was excellent,as was the posisition of hotel,we would stay here again.

We spent three nights at this hotel and it was perfect! Elegant rooms, a nice American bar, and a decent buffet breakfast are just a few of the good points, there are many more.
It is just 50 metres walk from the Santa Maria del Giglio stop so is very convenient and everything is within walking distance, all the attractions, restaurants and shops. A marvellous hotel in the heart of Venice

Room Tip: Try and get a room overlooking a canal but all views of Venice are beautiful
