My husband and I stayed at Al Gazzettino between Christmas and New Years. The reviews we had read in Tripadvisor were all quite good, but they did not seem to reflect our particular experience. Overall, the staff of the hotel is super helpful and kind so this is definitely true and nice from this hotel. However, after walking around Venice for five days and seeing many other hotels, it seems to us that this one is not really a 4 star hotel as it claims to be. There is no elevator, so we had to climb 4 floors to our room with bags which was not ideal after a 7 hour trip. Our room was at the very top, quite small and with windows that overlooked an internal patio of what seemed a home. The breakfast was just OK. We consider that the hotel is ok, but too expensive for what it is. When you reserve, make sure that you ask for a room on the first or second floors. Also, be sure to ask the total price during reservation because we were not told about an extra city tax that was added to our final bill per day per person which made the room importantly more expensive than what we originally considered.
