Recently stayed here for two nights and would highly recommend this hotel. Not only in a great area (walking distance to many sights and shops), but provided a great breakfast and cute bar. The hotel is literally about 100 ft. from one of the boat taxi stops that bring you directly from the airport. It is also an easy boat...

We have just returned from staying at Hotel Ala for 7 nights - and this review will state pros and cons for visitors. We booked a Deluxe twin and according to the photos we were in for a treat not a disappointment- this hotel is not family owed but a Best Western? We emailed in January via their web- site...

Dear guest maggieg354, Thank you for reviewing our hotel & services. We respect your opinion even if some phrases are not right. Anyway we are sorry if we did not exceed your full expectations. The Hotel Ala is not a Best Western member since January 2016. We believe that the Hotel Ala has a very high quality for a 3star...

Great place to stay when in Venice. Wonderful staff, super breakfast, and perfectly situated between Rialto, Academia and San Marco. This was our 3rd stay here, but it won't be our last. Thank you Hotel Ala for a great holiday experience.

I picked this hotel blindly. I didn't know anyone who had stayed here previously and didn't realize what a great location it was. I chose it mainly because it was in my price range and it included a full breakfast. The hotel was excellently situated, both to the Piazza San Marco and to transportation. The boat dock is just steps...

I paid extra for a single room. However, the room was extremely tiny. If I was heavy, I wouldn't have been able to fit in the room. The shower was so small I could not move in it. The room was so cold I ended up getting sick. When I complained, the housekeeper fixed the thermostat and gave me another...

well worth a visit, came for 5 days but 3 would have been sufficient. Lots of walking & sight seeing, not suitable for young children. A beautiful place as long as the weather is good. Would recommend this to a friend

We had a lovely stay for 2 nights. Hotel is centrally located, clean, friendly helpful staff. A quick walk and you're in the Piazza San Marco, down the street is the S Maria de Giglio pier for the Orange water taxi to the airport. The service boats that pass in the canal in the morning can be quite loud. For...

We stayed at the Hotel Ala for my 50th Birthday celebrations. Our bedroom was beautiful just as I imagined it to be, complete with a bouquet of flowers 😊 Hotel staff were very friendly, room was immaculate, great choice at breakfast time. Hotel is in an excellent location, 5 mins to St Marks square. Would definitely recommend.

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.
