About these Venice hotel pages:
We've included customized Google maps that you can zoom, rotate, or drag for better views.
If you see a conflict between our directions and a hotel's, rely on ours. (Hotel sites are often years out of date.) Ditto for maps: Our icons are hand-placed for accuracy, while GPS-based labels can be off by a street or more.

ABOVE: The Hotel Mignon is inland from
Alilaguna's Blue Line airport-boat stop on Fondamente Nove (blue airplane icons).
It's an easier walk than you might guess from looking at the map.
Mignon is a three-star hotel near the Campo Santi Apostoli and the Strada
Nova (Venice's busiest middle-class shopping street). It has 15 air-conditioned
rooms, all with a traditional Venetian decor and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
From Marco Polo Airport, the easiest way to reach the Hotel
Mignon is to take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat to Fondamente Nove.
(After 9 or 10 p.m., most Orange Line boats also call at the Fondamente Nove stop.)
Below, you'll find our directions for walking to the hotel
from platform "B" at Fondamente Nove), which is used by Alilaguna Linea Blu
airport boats. If you're coming from platform "A" (used by Linea Arancio boats),
you can eliminate step 1 and
begin with step 2.
As you leave the pier, turn right, cross the footbridge, and
walk a short distance to boat platform "A."
Just after platform "A," look for a narrow street on your
left: the Salizada dei
Spechieri. Follow the street inland past the Gesuiti Church and through the
Campo dei Gesuiti to a canal.
You'll see a bridge ahead of you. Cross the bridge and
continue along the Salizada Seriman to the next canal.
At the canal, bear right slightly and cross the bridge.
Continue down the Salizada L. Borgato.
Cross the next bridge and walk straight ahead on the Rio Terà
SS. Apostoli .
Just beyond a cross street, the Calle Larga dei Proverbi, you'll
reach a small square behind the church of SS Apostoli.
Look for the Calle dei Preti in the northwest corner of the square,
before the church. The Hotel Mignon is in the Calle dei Preti at no. 4535.
