Hotel Ala signThe Best Western Hotel Ala has long been a favorite of Venetophiles, so book early if you want a room. The three-star, 82-room hotel is less than 10 minutes on foot from the Piazza San Marco and on the same small square as the Gritti Palace, one of Venice's  most celebrated luxury hotels.

The Ala has a bar, a tea room, a roof terrace, and free Wi-Fi throughout the building.
