Avery beautiful hotel in a building from 17th century, renewed beautifully. Very good breakfast, in a nice dining room The stuff very kind and helpful Our room was big and comfortable Near the fenicia theatre

We pre-booked a room at this hotel for two nights. Since we missed our flight we couldn't make it the day we were supposed to check in. We contacted the hotel and they were very understanding - They managed to delay our reservation so it could fit our arrival time. The hotel is close to everything, it was very clean, the room was very spacious for two adults, the breakfast was good and most important, the staff was extreamly welcoming, helpful and informative with everything that has to do with places to see and transportation. Highly recommended.

Located very close to San Marco and Rialto bridge, on the canal. If lucky you can get a room with a canal view and observe gondolas below you. Unbeleivable design in rooms and lobby! Fantastic breakfast.

This is my first trip to Venice with my husband. We wanted to stop in the centre of the city so St Marks area was ideal. The hotel is situated only 20 metres from the Opera House so if you can find that you can find the hotel. Situated at the side of a small canal including gondalas passing by. It is in a beautiful location. The entrance is warm and inviting. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. Other reviewers have mentioned the lack of elevators but this is a traditional venitican hotel. We stayed on the top third floor room 303 which was the deluxe double. The room was huge with enormous bed and two windows overlooking the canal. The decor was beautiful in traditional style and very clean but you did have to use the aircon heater to warm it at night. The large bathroom was cleaned every day to a high standard with included bathroom accessories and added touch of slippers. It was nice to wake up with the smell of freshly baked pastries. Huge breakfast selection including fresh prepared fruit salad, cakes and typical continental selection. There was a small hot breakfast selection which was only warm when we tried it. The only suggestion I would make is that there is background music whilst having breakfast and in the bar area which would make it more welcoming and add more atmosphere. Overall a fantastic stay in a lovely hotel and ideal location. Only 5 minutes from St Mark's Square and 10 minutes from Rialto Bridge and the Grand Canal. Thank you to all staff for our wonderful first stay in Venice. We will return to your hotel in the future.

The hotel is placed near a little bridge and if you are lucky the window of your room can open on the above water way. As drawback, but consider you are in Venice, room I took was not extremely large and you have to take stairs to reach the room. People of the hotel offered to carry the luggage and everyone was very kind. The room had also a beautiful glass chandelier, from Murano I guess.

The room was beautifully decorated. We were so excited when we walked in. It was a bit dark but nonetheless, it was ornate. Don’t be deceived by the decor. They have bedbugs. We stayed two nights. I have never had a bedbugs bite so I didn’t recognize what the bites were when I was there. When we returned home, a friend immediately recognized the bites. I contacted Trip Masters but they were of no help. Best advice, stay in a different hotel. Also, too many alleyways to navigate to get to the water taxi.

This hotel is tired! Some of the staff were lovely, some grumpy! The younger staff were helpful, the older less friendly. We knew there was no lift, so that's ok. But for a person who doesn't like stairs, specify a lower down room. The room we had wasn't the most basic. Plus points were a jacuzzi bath. Negative points were a tired decor (it really needs a deep dust & clean & repaint) and badly positioned power points. The breakfast was just OK. Overall we wouldn't be back, even if the location is good, the whole place needs a good makeover.

We stayed here for three nights in a deluxe double room. The staff at reception were friendly and assisted us with our queries. The hotel has no elevator so you have to lug heavy bags up to your room. Our room was a long walk from the lobby, seemed like a 3 minute walk, and up two flights of very steep steps to the actual room which seemed to be located in the attic and there was a terrible smell just outside the room where they seem to keep the hotel laundry. The room was spacious but dark, it could do with a bit more lighting and the finishes are worn out even the bathroom had missing components on the shower. I booked this hotel for the authentic decor but the decor in the room seemed faded and tacky so that was disappointing. There was a kettle and complimentary tea/coffee which was good. Breakfast was not terrible, worst coffee i have ever tasted, rather take a walk to cafe and have a proper breakfast. Location was ok but not great, i think that other hotels in the area offered better location, it was however a 5 minute walk from St. Angelo water station which is convenient for catching the water bus to the airport or just going from one side of the island to the next.

We stayed ay Albergo Ca Alvise in May 2017, nice large rooms and bathrooms compare to other hotels in the area. Decorated nice, the only bad thing is no elevator but I did not mind going up and down 3 flights of stairs 7 times a day but if you have issues with that probably pick another hotel. But staff was pleasant, Sometimes when it is low tide water taxi can't get to your hotel so you need to get dropped off at the main canal. Breakfast was good and plenty. That was a added bonus.

The hotel receptionist was pleasant and helpful with any questions we had, the room was cleaned everyday but not fully there was always some rubbish left. The bathroom was nice and the bath was reasonable size for a good relax along with the water jets which were snacking after a day of walking Venice! The location wasn't far from the main square. Breakfast was awful I ended up eating out every morning!
