Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo
Ranked #14 of 385 Hotels in Venice
Certificate of Excellence

An ideal place to stay, in a quiet location but within walking distance of everything you'd want. Nice clean rooms, good food, friendly staff and fairly priced. Couldn't fault it and fully intend to return.

I used Trip Advisor to plan our Italian vacation and I was not disappointed! We loved Al Ponte Mocenigo for its charm, authentic Venetian experience, and friendly staff! It was also nice to get away from the bustle of St. Mark's Plaza into a quieter, cozy neighborhood. They had a fantastic breakfast and we had the ability to walk from any location in Venice. We had some trouble finding it because we got in to the city with major jet lag and late at night, but it is very accessible by public transport and right next to the San Stae stop. We're already planning our next trip to Venice!

Room Tip: We booked through hotels.com and felt we got a good deal. We stayed in a double superior room and it...

In fairness, we had just arrived from a hotel in Florence that exceeded our expectations. So, we had a comparator in mind that, while similarly priced, easily outshined this property.

In the interest of balance, I'll highlight some very strong positives:

-Good value, as it is relatively inexpensive for Venice

-Good location close to the rail station and off the beaten path a bit

-Outstanding service, very courteous and kind staff

The downsides:

-Our rooms seemed to lack soundproofing of any type. I could clearly hear the people above me as well as those on either side. This may be unique to the Annex (where we stayed), but it was definitely bothersome.

-The free internet service randomly kicked me off-line every 15 minutes. Literally. I'd rather pay for something more reliable.

-We had two double superior rooms, both at the same price, but very different. One was quite small with just enough room for two single beds a chair and two bedside tables, while the other was big enough for a table with a couple chairs and a separate couch. The small room was #31, and the bigger one was across the hall (don't recall the room number).

-The breakfast, while free, is quite limited. Again, they suffer unfairly from a comparison with the free breakfasts we received at our other hotels on this trip - all of which far exceeded this one. Here, you receive a choice of two cereals, yogurt, a large bowl of mixed fruit, some breads/croissants and coffee/water/juice. A standard continental breakfast - no meats, cheeses, eggs, etc.

So, overall it is by no means a bad hotel, it just did not strike me as one that is deserving of a reader's choice award - and certainly not worthy of a 5 star review.

While it's difficult to add much to the reviews, here is a guide to planning your visit to Venice.

1. Make a reservation at Al Ponte Mocenigo as soon as you decide to go to Venice. It is a small hotel and fills up quickly.

2. Go to www.veniceconnected.com and buy a Vaparetto Pass. You can buy them online at a 25% discount. You hand your receipt in to any ticket booth and they give you a pass. The pass makes staying at Al Ponte Mocenigo even more convenient. We found this by accident, but it is legitimate and saves you a few dollars.

3. Go to www.veniceurbanadventures.com and book the Cichette tour with Cecilia for the first night you arrive. It leaves from directly across the Grand Canal from Al Ponte Mocenigo and is a wonderful and delicious way to learn your way around Venice. You can read the reviews for the tour on TA.

4. The map that Sandro and Walter give you has the main walking routes in Venice highlighted in yellow. These routes are very helpful for getting around.

I agree that Al Ponte Mocenigo should be at 3 star hotel. Our room, Annex 44, was as nice as any room in a 5 star hotel, and probably larger! The staff could not have been nicer. The fresh baked croissants were wonderful. I also agree with the comments about the firm bedding, but we found that in a number of hotels in Italy.

Before arriving we were concerned about the hotel location in Santa Croce. After a couple of days we learned the shortcuts and how close the hotel is to almost everything. If you get a Vaparetto pass you think nothing of jumping on to cross the Canal to get to Cannaregio and a number of good restaurants. A 3 or 4 stop trip takes you to the Rialto Bridge, which is a 5 minute walk from St. Marks Square (look on the map for Mercerie dell Orologio). This route is much faster than taking the Vaparetto to St. Marks, which can take 40 minutes from San Stae.

There are also a number of good restaurants near the hotel. We enjoyed Al Ponte del Megio, a short walk from the hotel. La Zucca gets very good reviews, but book early, as we could not get in during our visit. Sandro and Walter were very help with recommendations and reservations.

Enjoy Al Ponte Mocenigo and Venice!

I stayed for 3 nights with my mother - who had hurt herself and had to walk with crutches. We we're given the room next to the reception, so that she wouldn't have to climb any stairs. So thoughtful. From the minute we arrived, the staff we're so helpful and pleasant. More than willing to help reserve a place for dinner or show us how to get from one spot to the next. Even before we arrived they were fantastic - patiently answering all my mother's endless queries.
By accident we paid twice for a concert - they realised the mix up and had the refund ready before we even had time to ask! Very honest.
Great location, great rooms, great breakfast with fantastic staff.
it deserves it's first spot on trip advisor 100%
