We stayed here for three nights during a weekend visit to Venice and couldn't have chosen a better base.
Arrived in style, private water taxi straight to the reception.(Don't ask the cost!!)
The hotel is handy for all the sights, the Pier Giglio stop 100mts from the front door.
The room was small but adequate, with a small, clean shower room and a canal view(OK it was a side canal not the "Grand")
The hotel only has a breakfast room but the selection is first class, it can get fairly busy so the earlier the better. But with so much to see in Venice why stay late in bed?
There is a small bar in the hotel which is ideal for a either a drink before you go out in the evening or a night cap on your return.
The reception staff were very helpful and friendly, the breakfast staff kept the tables clear and replenished the bowls of fruit or hot plates and the staff in the bar were exeptionall.
When we return to Venice we will definitely stay at the Ala.
