Had two rooms in the upper floor, with a view towards the small piazza by Sta. Maria del Giglio. Rooms were modern, with all the ammenities (except that our mini fridge...

We stayed in two rooms for 3 nights in late November and were very comfortable. The hotel is clean, the staff were incredibly helpful. The area was quiet and yet easy to find and near nice restaurants. There is a large selection for breakfast.

朝食付きデラックスルームに8泊しました 1.利便性を考慮して選んだのに近くのバポレット乗り場は工事で閉鎖され遠くから歩きました。 2.スタッフはアジア系のハウスキーパー以外無愛想で笑顔がありません。 3.ルーフテラスは夏以外クローズです。 4.ジャグジーは壊れて修理に1ヶ月かかるそうです 水漏れで変わった部屋のジャグジーからは黒いカビが噴き出してきました 5.上層階の部屋の工事でパイプを破って汚水が部屋に落ちてきました 6.朝食のサーモンは美味しかったですがクロワッサンは最悪 良い点 コーヒーの無料サービス 観光地に近い 総評 宿泊した8日間はスタッフの対応とマナーによって全く落ち着くことが出来ません 特にアメリカの有名な俳優に似た夜のスタッフはアジア人を完全に見下していました。 彼らに欠けている物 smile,thank you,hello and i am sorry. 価格表を見るとmax800per day!!!!!!!!

The Hotel Ala is a gem. It is well located, just a short walk from Piazza San Marco and a very close to the water ferry station Giglio. My room was small but nicely appointed. The breakfast buffet had something for everyone. The staff was helpful and friendly.

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.
