Hotel Ala was perfectly situated - a few minutes from St. Mark's Square in one direction and an easy stroll to the Accademia and Guggenheim Museums in the other. Just steps from a vaporetto stop as well. The staff was helpful in many ways, from restaurant suggestions to assistance with water taxis. One evening my significant other bought me several...

We stayed here for 3 nights (two double rooms). Very central yet quiet location. Walking distance to much of the city with a ferry/water bus stop 100m away. Clean and all staff very kind and helpful, especially at the reception. Delicious breakfast (included). Wi-fi also included and worked well. I would definitely recommend. Note - for the 3rd and 4th...

I can’t say enough great things about this hotel….it’s in a great location, with well-appointed rooms that are a great size, comfortable beds, and location was fantastic. The water taxi drops you off in the back of the hotel, whereas you can have a private water taxi that pulls up to the back door of the hotel, and gondolas and...

We stayed at the Hotel Ala for four nights and cannot fault it at all. It is in a perfect location, two minutes walk from a vaparetto stop and about three or four minutes to St Mark's Square. It is spotlessly clean. The staff were so helpful and courteous. The breakfast is plentiful, loads of variety and delicious. The American...

We stayed here six days during our recent visit to Venice. This is an especially preferred location for older travelers: It is located 100 meters from the vaporetto/alilaguna stop Giglio. It is equidistant from and close to the Academia and Saint Mark's square . This is a family run enterprise that also has a hand in the quality restaurant Da...

A warm welcome awaits you at this lovely hotel right in the middle of all the action! An easy walk to St Marks Square and hundreds of fabulous sights you will not be disappointed. Restaurants are in abundance along with coffee shops and little sandwich/ shops for a light bite. Designer clothing and typical Venetian goods are also very close...

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.
