We loved the hotel Ala. My family had two rooms that were sectioned off on our own, a great breakfast and the concierge staff was so helpful. The location was in the center of the city, right off the grand canal. It was primarily filled with American guests. We had a room facing the courtyard. It was quiet and pretty. Excellent service and a fun atmosphere. We really enjoyed it. Plenty of room for our family of four, plus recommendations for activities. Very friendly staff.

We liked our stay here. The hotel location is very convenient to taxis and the square. The hotel is very clean and the staff are extremely helpful.

One caution, avoid the "free" tour of Murano. It was actually a sales pitch to buy from a single, expensive company. When we declined to buy, they stopped helping us and getting back became much more difficult.

Again, the hotel is great. We loved Venice.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

Only stayed one night here. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. It is located along one of the small canals. Good breakfast. It is located near St. Mark's and about a block from the Grand Canal. Would recommend this hotel.

This hotel truly is just steps away from a vaporetto stop, and the airport transport drops you right off, or you can get to the train station easily as well. My room was small but it was a single. The window opened up onto a small canal and I was serenaded more than once as the gondolas floated by! The only down side was the shower. There was no tub or lip to the shower area so when you took one, the entire floor got wet no problem until you want to turn on the hair dryer. :) But all in all a very good place to stay in Venice!!

We needed a place to stay for our family for two nights after a Disney cruise from Venice. We selected the Best Western Ala after looking at reviews, prices and what this hotel offered and could not have been more satisfied. Great service and support. Superb hot breakfast with something for everyone. Excellent rooms which would accommodate up to our four per room (X2) needs, two adults/two kids. Nicely located on a canal which we used to arrive by water taxi at the side door entry. Rooftop lounge and adjoining "American Bar". Easy walk to San Marco and the Grand Canal. Many good restaurants nearby, we liked "Le Café" at Campo Stephano, minutes away. Highly recommended, especially if you are looking for larger, family rooms

Room Tip: consider different configurations and sizes, we needed rooms for up to four

This was our second stay at this hotel. We returned for 3 reasons-1) good value,2)because of the relative closeness to San Marco square and 3) because it is a short walk from the Giglio stop on the valporeto route-no stairs with your luggage straight to the hotel . This time we booked direct with www.bestwestern.com to be able to get a room with a wonderful canal view. During the afternoon and evening, the gondolas sailed below our window each day. The breakfast was a full breakfast with lots of fresh fruit and fresh pastries, as well as eggs, toast, bacon. A fresh cappuccino was also available for the asking. This trip was for our 40th anniversary, and we were very pleased.
