Perfect location in proximity to Piazza San Marco and the hotel is a few steps from a vaperetto stop...the complimentary breakfast is well done. The hotel staff are friendly and accomodating. I would definitely stay here again.

The Hotel Ala is a gem. It is well located, just a short walk from Piazza San Marco and a very close to the water ferry station Giglio. My room was small but nicely appointed. The breakfast buffet had something for everyone. The staff was helpful and friendly.

Well located hotel close to the Gigolo water taxi and San Marco, Hotel has smallish rooms that are well maintained. Bathrooms are wet style and need getting used to for US visitors. Breakfast is outstanding and the bar is also nice and popular. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Rooms that face the street can be noisy.

Was disappointed in this hotel. They seem to coast on their inclusion in the Rick Steve's book and don't hurt for business. The front desk staff was detached and not particularly friendly. The complimentary breakfast could be nice one day and totally inadequate the next. The location was great...maybe 30 meters from the Vaporetta stop on the Grand Canal and... More

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.
