This hotel is just steps away from St. Mark's Square. This would ordinarily be a plus, but we felt like we had to fight our way through the crowds each day to go out or come back in. The hotel is nice, with good staff...More

We booked the 'Alilaguna' service online before we went for €25 return. It goes directly from the airport to Piazza San Marco from where it is a five minute (max) walk to the Dona Palace.
