“A wonderful stay and extremely good value for Venice!”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

My girlfriend and I stayed with Aleksandra at Alla Vite Dorata for two nights in September and found the place to be everything we expected and more. The room very nice and with a great canal view, and we were allowed to check into our room upon our early 11:30am arrival which was extremely helpful to us.

The second day of our stay was my girlfriend's 21st birthday, and we were greeted by a bottle of prosecco, chocolates and a candle in our room which was a lovely touch and made the day that bit more special. The breakfast was lovely and for our early departure on our last day Aleksandra provided us with some breakfast and coffee that we could help ourselves to before we left. Again this was another lovely personal touch which made an already fantastic place to stay even better.

It was also in a great location, in a quiet part of town but close enough to the main attractions. We walked from Piazzale Roma (coach station) upon our arrival and this took no more than about 25 minutes.

All in all, a great place - highly recommended. We will definitely be returning the next time we visit Venice!

We stayed at Alla Vite Dorata for 2 nights in August 2012; this place is amazing. We are the family of 4 and had the Blue Room that had bunk beds in the entrance area and a queen size bed that is half separated from the entrance area. The room is very nicely decorated, the bathroom is big and very nice; this room has a window right above the water, the canal view from the room is great.

Room Tip: Not all room shave the canal view; only some.

My wife and I stayed at this lovely boutique bed and breakfast with only six rooms pre-cruise, and we were delighted by so many aspects of the property.

First of all, the location of the property on the North side of Venice Island means several things: It is very close to Fondamente Nuove, one of the first stops for the Alilaguna Water Bus (15 Euro per person from the airport); second there are far fewer tourists here so it's easy to find uncrowded water taxis (ACTV) that can take you anywhere, third the canal adjacent to the hotel gives you a much more personal view of Venetian life than the Grand Canal.
Additionally, the property owner Alexandra is very helpful, finding us a needed outlet adapter and a post office.

The rooms are a bit small but adequate, and the breakfast was quite good (just don't expect eggs and bacon...this is an Island after all). The breakfast room opens up into the canal and has a single outside table...usually available if you're up by 8:30 when breakfast starts.

The hotel has free wi-fi and is in a safe location (all of Venice is safe) but there was something about the property that makes you feel at peace.

Finally if you are continuing on to a cruise, all you have to do is go back to Fondamente Nuove where the airport water bus dropped you off, take ACTV water taxi 51 or 41 to the Piazzele Roma stop, and hop on the "People Mover" tram (1 euro) to the pier.

This place is absolutley stunning. The rooms are gorgeous and are more than adequate for a city break. The location I think is perfect and if you follow the directions you can't go wrong. Air con, much needed in the heat, clean rooms and free wifi!

The staff are fantastic, its seems nothing it to much. Breakfast was simple but more than sufficient and the fresh coffee and never ending orange jucie and pastries would have no hesitations recommending this little gem.

We were able to check in early and leave our bags safely during the day until our night flight home.

We booked a canal view room for a relaxing few nights at the end of our holiday. Our room was beautiful, the air conditioning was powerful (and well needed) and the hospitality was brilliant. The breakfast in the morning was really nice (fresh croissants) and the quaint canal view really brought Venice to life. Definitely note down the instructions from the website before you arrive as otherwise you might find it tough to find!
