Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
Location was perfect for exploring all the different districts in Venice.
We totally enjoyed breakfast every morning, which was served in the Hotel Violino D'Oro, around the corner (also where one goes to check-in).
WiFi in both hotels was...More
This hotel is in an excellent location and that was really terrific, although it is kind of difficult to find at first since it's down a very narrow street, but that also put them in a nice, quiet courtyard. The hotel doesn't have someone on...More
This hotel is Convenient to vaporetto line. Nice room with beautiful decor but it was somewhat worn. Big bathroom. Smallest room. Staff at sister hotel helpful but need to check in next door at violina d'ora. No onsite staff. Breakfast was not to be missed....More
Once you get to the hotel it's extremely nice. Word of advice, pack lightly. We drove to Venice, and after parking (expensive), took a water bus to the hotel. However, once the bus dropped us off, it took a long time to lug all of...More
My girlfriend and I stayed here for a weekend and were pleasantly surprised by how excellent the service, convenient location, and superb breakfast were. An absolute steal for the price!
We arrived quite late, but were still greeted by extremely friendly staff.
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.

We used Alliguna also for the transfer from the airport. It worked well and we enjoyed the transfer even though it is around a good hour plus due to the other stops. Once you get off a St Mark's it is just a matter of turning left and up the main shopping street you cannot go past it! Up at the top turn left over another bridge and you will see a Gondola station on your left with a number of hotels one i think the Viola which is the sister hotel to the Anastasia and where you eat breakfast. Just head in underneath and round to your right which will take you into a Square with the Anastasia on your right. You do need to hit the buzzer and someome from the Viola will come round to you for checkin.

Hi Kent, unfortunately you should be prepared for all transport in Venice to be expensive. We used the Alilaguna water taxi service which is probably more of a shuttle or bus service (it's not a private water taxi). The cost of this was 15 euros per person. I think the cost for private water taxis can be as around 100 - 200 euros so it's definitely a cheaper option.
It won't let me post a website link in this message but if you google Alilaguna it's the first link that comes up. It is best to get the Blue Line (Linea Blu) from the airport which leaves every 15 mins. There is no need to pre book and you can purchase tickets when you get to the airport. We got ours from a counter in the baggage claim area, but there are also machines around the airport. The website has instructions for how to walk from the airport terminal down to the departure point (it took us about 8-10mins to walk). You should then take the boat to the San Marco stop which is the closest stop to the hotel. From there, the hotel is only a couple of minutes walk. Make sure you have a map up on your phone or hard copy though, as the short walk involves a couple of turns down small alley ways (as do all Venice's walks).
Also, be prepared for a long boat ride. I think it took us about an hour and 20mins to get to the San Marco stop.
Hope that helps!
