We booked a double room, and were shocked at how small it was!! Yes.. I know hotel rooms are generally smaller in Europe - but let me explain just HOW SMALL!!! I could lay across the bed and touch one side of the room with...More

Plus: if you're into it, the wild venetian ostentatious decor. Roll with that. It's half brothel/half vegas and if you just accept that as a plus, it's easier. The location's great, short walk to many shops and sights and to the vaporetto launches.
My boyfriend booked us 3 nights at this “hotel” and while we had a fantastic time in Venice, the hotel did let us down:
1) The check in desk resembles an old school desk surrounded by tat.

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.

VCE - Marco Polo by coach to the terminus at Piazzale Roma is about half-an-hour. Then by water bus (No 1) to "Rialto B" stop is about 10 minutes. From Rialto B, walk on the Riva del Carbon (50 metres) to the Calle Bembo opposite "Rialto A" water bus stop*. Calle Bembo becomes the Calle dei Fabri, and to the Alcyone is about 150 metres. Allow an hour from leaving the airport.
* Rialto B is the stop coming FROM Piazzale Roma. Rialto A is to go TO Piazzale Roma.
