Hotel Ala is a cosy hotel with friendly and welcoming staff. We had a superior double room on the first floor at the back of the hotel, which overlooked a narrow canal leading off the Grand Canal. We looked down on the canal which was frequented by the gondolas complete with singing and accordion playing gondoliers. Our room was very...

2 Transfer problems emerged during our visit. Staff unwilling or unable to cooperate. Desk completely non proactive about problems. Food runs out in breakfast rooms. Fines are levied for ironing in rooms, and food nicked from breakfast.

Hotel has a good breakfast buffet which is always crowded. Staff members are very helpful and courteous. One can walk almost anywhere in Venice from this centrally located hotel which is also very convenient for the Alilaguna airport shuttle.

This was a fantastic base for our first visit to Venice. Only 100m from boat drop off and very close to St Marks square. Hotel is very clean, modern with old decor. Breakfast is the best continental breakfast we have had, loads of choice. Staff friendly and although our room seemed small we only used it for sleeping as out...

We had a lovely stay at this gorgeous boutique hotel, we had deluxe rooms and they were just charming, very Venetian style, super comfortable beds and great quality bed linen. The breakfast buffet was generous and extremely varied for a continental breakfast, and the children loved the pancake machine! The staff were wonderful, incredibly kind and patient and really kind...

This is a nice hotel. The room also was nice, but we had no outside access from the window, just looking into a small contained court yard. Hot was nicely finished, and very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast area was tight.

It's a great time to visit Venice. Temps in the 60's just starting to get crowded. Hotel Ala is situated near everything you'd want to do with a vaporetto sop almost outside the door. The room is a good size with all the amenities you'd need, including a room safe.

Had a real pleasant stay at Hotel Ala. The location is perfect. Very near a ferry terminal that also has an airport service. Very near San Marco. Rooms are clean and neatly done.

We chose the Hotel Ala based on location and could not have been more pleased. The proximity to the water taxi is great and the details on how to arrive were very clear.

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.
