All of the hotels in Venice are super expensive however I found the ALA very resonable and got more than I expected.
It's just off of St Mark's Square. If you take the Baglietto to St Marks get off make a left and go straight until you come to another street. Make a left, St mark should be at your back. Follow that street cross two bridges and you land right at the Ala.
The staff was freindly. The room had no view and was quite small, but those things didn't matter since I was out of the room 98% of the time. Just a note, the Air Condition worked extremely well.
Breakfest was great. They offered pastries/eggs/toast/and italian meats. The coffee was excellent. It was all perfect to start your day.
Wireless internet was available for $8 Euros which gave you 24 hrs of service. It worked perfectly.
Overall I have no complaints or problems with the hotel. For the price/location/ and service, I believe it's a bargain for Venice, however if you're looking for a view of the grand canal then be prepared to spend some money!
