Great hotel close to St Mark's Square

Posted Apr 25, 2015
Lovely hotel in reasonably quiet setting, easy to find/reach from airport. Minutes from water bus on Grand Canal but within walking distance of many of the tourist attractions. Nice places to eat nearby and some not too expensive. Good breakfast in hotel and catered for coeliac diet without any problem. Clean hotel room, ours a little small and warm for 3 adults sharing but fine. Beds very firm. Beautiful rooftop terrace.

Great location

Posted Apr 23, 2015
Pros: The hotel is comfortable and very clean. Breakfast is superb with plenty of variety, there's something there for everyone.
Cons: There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but you can ask at reception or phone and they will bring a tray to your room within minutes :
This hotel is so easy to get to from the airport and it's really hard to beat in terms of location. From the airport, buy a return ticket from the Alilaguna booth and board the Orange line to Giglio. The return trip costs about €22 and it is a fast and easy way to get to the hotel. The boat stops at Giglio and when you get off, you can only walk one way. Head along the narrow alleyway and walk for less than a minute. The Hotel Ala will just appear in front of you!

Hôtel centralisé pour visites

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: Le fait de communiquer en français. La gentillesse du personnel (femme de ménage, porteur ) Petit déjeuner copieux et très frais
Cons: L'accueil à la réception dès que vous faites une réclamation
Location: Quartier calme - A visiter la Fénice et l'Acamédia - Place St Marc
C'est la 2ème fois que nous allons dans cet hôtel du fait de sa centralisation pour visiter et nous n'avons relativement pas été déçus mis à part que la chambre 111 ne correspondait pas à ce que nous avions pensé avoir du fait que nous avions pris une chambre de luxe supérieur - rien n'était de luxe ni supérieur. On a demandé à visiter une chambre classique ce qui nous a été refusé, donc on se pose des questions. On a réservé depuis le 30.1.2015. Les photos ne ressemblent en rien à ce que nous avons eu.

A good hotel, very well located in central Venice.

Posted Apr 14, 2015
Pros: Location, (2 minutes from the Grand Canal boat stop) character.
Cons: The bathroom needed a little improvement
Location: This is Venice! A lifetime of things to see!
An enjoyable stay, not far from the Piazza San Marco. Pleasant staff and a very attractive, characterful building, We have stayed at a 4 star hotel nearby - this was just as good, and a great deal cheaper. Recomennded.

Posted Apr 12, 2015
Pros: Décor, cleanliness, pleasant & helpful staff, lovely room.
Cons: Stop music when bar shuts, Bacon & more toasters at breakfast
Location: Very handy for Piazza San Marco, airport bus stop only a minutes walk (Giglio)
Lovely hotel with a great location, couple of minor disappointments, bar below plays load music, the bass which could be heard thumping in our room directly above, would have been okay if it had stopped at midnights supposed closing time but often kept going to well after 1am, I did go down & have a rant and it was turned down slightly but still kept me awake! Breakfast, sausages (out of a tin) were cold on first morning, they don't serve bacon & the toaster takes forever, often a queue formed waiting to use it.

Really convenient spot

Posted Apr 3, 2015
Pros: Homely bar attached to the hotel, Beautifully clean hotel with bed linen and towels changed to order. Hot drinks provided in the room.
Cons: Breakfast was ok but the same every day. When we went down later to breakfast there was much less on offer
Location: Gondola ride. Easy access to the islands of the lagoon. Peggy Gugenheim museum a must. Discovered the upstairs museum in St Mark's basilica.
We had an excellent holiday at the Hotel Ala which is situated mid way between Saint Mark's Square and the Academia bridge, so close to all amenities. The hotel staff were very welcoming especially the bar man who couldn't do enough for us. It was great to have the American Bar attached to the hotel ensuring that we always had a warm welcome for a night cap. Breakfast was fine if a little repetative. We were initially disappointed not to have a kettle in the room but we only had to ring down to Reception and a member of staff would bring up a tray (free of charge). The city is just magical and the gondola ride though very expensive was a highlight. I would advise visitors at this time of year to bring suitable foot ware as St. Mark's square was flooded.A visit to the islands of Burano and Murano was excellent. All in all Venice remains our favourite.

Emplacement idéal

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Hotel accueillant ainsi que le personnel. Nous avons eu une chambre moderne rénovée récemment très propre avec un grand lit. Le petit déjeuner est copieux. Cet établissement est vraiment à recommander. A 2 pas de la station d'arrêt de la ligne orange pour l'aéroport.
