Comfort and great value in Venice

The Al Sole Hotel provides its guests with a selection of charming, comfortable rooms and a beautiful canal-side location all set within the structure of a fascinating 15th century building. The hotel is actually part of the Palazzo Marcello, which is a historic palace that is still owned by the noble Marcello family. Despite this aristocratic heritage the Al Sole Hotel offers excellent value for the money with breakfast included in the price of the rooms. In the summer this meal is served in the beautiful garden.

3 Reasons To Stay:
  • Hotel lands above its 3-star rating in terms of service and quality of its rooms
  • The 15th century palazzo on-site hides a charming secret garden within its walls, which is a brilliant refuge on hot summer days
  • A great location for holidaymakers looking to explore the city on foot

Tiny cramped rooms, not worth the price

We were only in Venice one night so mainly concentrated on location. All hotels in Venice are relatively expensive (unless you stay in an area that's only accessible by Waterbus to the main tourist areas). This hotel had good reviews, which in hindsight I really can't believe. Our room was SO TINY (room 221) and cramped, in the back corner of the hotel. Bathroom also tiny and unappealing. Very dark with no natural sunlight. The one advantage was that it was quiet. We had family staying in a twin bed room on the same level but their room was somewhat bigger and definitely better. Location was quite good, easy 5-10 minute walk to train station and many local tourism spots. Breakfast is included and it was decent, nothing special but better than typical continental breakfast. There is no Wi-Fi at the hotel. They do have a computer in the lobby with internet and printer access, but to use it you need to buy an internet card which costs 5 Euros/hour, and no smaller increments are available (i.e. there is no 15- or 30-minute card). I really hate hotels that nickle-and-dime their customers like this when all I needed to do was print a confirmation. Fortuntely I got a nearly used internet card from the lobby receptionist, so that was appreciated. Overall we were in italy 2 weeks, stayed at 6 places all costing in the $150-200/night range), and this was easily the worst. Would not stay again

We booked late for a one night

We booked late for a one night weekend stay and got the last room. The room was small but good and faced the internal garden on the first floor. The location suited us, a ten minute walk from Santa Lucia train station on a peaceful canal with a gondola waiting outside. There were plenty of places to eat and shop on the street and nearby. Piazza Sn Marco was a 40 minute walk but it was good to come back to the calm of the San Croce area for dinner. The hotel has several spacious lounge areas for relaxation. The room was clean, in good condition with a modern bathroom and quiet. The continental breakfast included cold cuts. The manager and staff were helpful with information and storage of luggage before check in and after checkout. The latter was important as it meant we could extend our last day before catching the train. Negatives- the internet is expensive. In summary, this hotel is good value for Venice and we would happily recommend to friends and stay again

Very charming location. Quite

Very charming location. Quite near Piazza Roma which was convenient for carrying suitcases. Good quality cafe and restaurants nearby with reasonable prices. Walking instructions from Piazza Roma to the hotel on the hotel website would be an advantage.

Hebergement de bonne qualité

L'hotel est bien placé car pas trop loin de la place des bus/taxis(ni trop proche d'ailleurs) dans un quartier calme et à proximité du centre. La décoration intérieure et extérieure est agréable. Notre chambre et salle de bain était également agréable et calme (pas de bruit la nuit). Petit déjeuner de qualité et personnel agréable. Cet hôtel constitue donc un excellent rapport qualité/prix.

Hotel bien situé

L’hôtel est bien situé, 5 min de la gare et de la "Piazzale Roma". La place St Marc n'est qu'a 15 min de marche en suivant le chemin fléché. L’accueil est bon et le personnel serviable. Mais le confort de la chambre ne vaut pas un 3 étoile. Notre chambre était spacieuse, mais avec un confort rudimentaire. Le sol avait des trous. Le lit matrimonial était composé de 2 lits individuels et les draps ne permettait pas de border les 2 lits coller entre eux. Les matelas n’étant pas d'un grand confort. La Télé propose des centaines de chaîne, dont seulement 5 en langues étrangères (2 En, 1 Fr, 1 DE, 1ES) Le buffet froid est dans l'ensemble bon. Les jus de fruits sont dilués. Le jardin intérieur est agréable. Dans l'ensemble, cet hôtel est un 3 étoiles d’entrée de gamme. Le rapport qualité/prix est donc respecte. Et sa situation géographique. est son principal atout. Intéressant pour un cour séjour.

Hotel Al Sole

Pour un séjour de 4 jours à Venise en octobre, notre choix s'était porté sur cet hotel qui ne comportait que de bonnes critiques. Tarif correct, chambre donnant sur un canal, cadre agréable et petits déjeuners copieux . Autre atout : sa situation trés calme #loin de l'agitation de St Marc# et situé à 5mn de la piazzale Roma donc pratique pour l'arrivée/départ vers aéroport et l'accès aux Vaporetti du grand canal. Nous retiendrons aussi la gentillesse du personnel de l'accueil que, de plus, parle français et anglais. En résumé, un trés bon hôtel que nous recommandons aux futurs visiteurs.

Hotel agréable

Nous avons séjourné 4 nuits dans la chambre 205 avec vue sur le canal - peu d'intérêt lorsque l'on visite beaucoup, on y est que pour dormir - rue sur le canal bruyante certains jours (passage vers la gare et la plazza Roma - transports fluviaux - éboueurs ... etc) - Chambre très correcte dans l'ensemble - quelques petits détails à revoir (accrochage des rideaux) mini bar pour ceux qui le souhaitent - tapis dans les escaliers à revoir - personnel à l'écoute (accueil - bagagiste) parle le français très compréhensible - petit déjeuner assez copieux - terrasse ombragée correcte à la belle saison et plus agréable que la salle (un peu sombre)
