We loved the location of Hotel Ala. This hotel was a minute walk from the Giglio stop, which made it very convenient taking the ACTV 1 line from the central station to the Giglio stop and back. The hotel is also a five minute walk to St Mark's square. As far as the hotel itself, our room was nice and...

I would stay at his hotel anytime I am in Venice again. For the money, you can't beat the location, the cleaniness, and the staff. You actually walk a few steps down an alley from the Vaporetto stop and you are at the hotel. In Venice this is a big deal. You can find yourself dragging your luggage up and...

Hotel Ala was great for our stay in Venice. For starters it's only about 50 metres from a water taxi stop so we didn't have to drag our bags over any bridges! Room was relatively compact but comfortable, although it was a bit of a maze to get to! Staff were very helpful and we were even offered a free...

Kind staff, perfect location, no views from most rooms, a bit noisy on the side of the ferry stop. Clean, old-style. Good breakfast. Too expensive like almost every hotel during festivals and biennales

Very good choice for someone with few mobility issues. It is close to vaporetto and also has its own water gate. has a lift and a well designed shower. maybe could have a rail in the shower. Staff are attentive and well trained. Breakfast was way above the usual.

While the hotel was in a good location, the rooms were tiny and there was very little light since the only small window faces a nearby wall. The floors were definitely not level throughout the entire hotel.

Wonderful corner room. Delightful staff and great breakfast. Excellent location and value for money. Do not eat at nearby restaurants, very expensive. I would love to go back there and stay a week, perfect! Fond memories of gondolas going past the window.

We have just returned from a 6 night stay here, celebrating our wedding anniversary. The hotel was excellent- why it is only a 3 star we do not know? The situation of the hotel is excellent - it took us 3 minutes to walk to San Marco square, about 10 minutes to accademia, so perfectly located for exploring. We got...

Our stay at Hotel Ala was comfortable and memorable . The location is unbeatable , just a couple of minutes from all the action. The breakfast was quite good . The rooms are a bit small but I feel that's because we are in the heart of Venice and between all action that's why there are space constraints . Overall...

Excellent hotel - fabulous location, spotlessly clean, great breakfast. Our room was small but had everything we needed including a plug-in mosquito killer which I have never been given by any hotel before. The only criticism was the polystyrene cups provided for tea/coffee - real cups would have been much better. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay and I would have...

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
