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 (Hotel sites are often years out of date.)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 Palazzo Bembois
just a few meters from the Alilaguna Orange Line airport boat's pier (blue
airplane icon at left).
Bembo is a tiny (six-room) inn on the top floor of its namesake building,
the Palazzo Bembo. The palace, which
was built for one of Venice's oldest families in the 1400s, is now used for art
exhibitions and special events--except for the former servants' quarters, which
have been converted into four elegant rooms and two junior suites for overnight guests.
Amenities include period furnishings, views of the Grand Canal
and Rialto Bridge from some rooms, an elevator from the ground floor, and free
Internet access via Wi-Fi or an Internet terminal in the lounge.
The location is central (the Rialto Bridge makes it easy to
reach the other side of the Grand Canal), and directions to the Hotel Bembo from
the Alilaguna airport boat are short and simple.
How to reach the Palazzo Bembo from the Alilaguna
Orange Line stop at Rialto:
Step off the waterbus.
Turn left as you leave the station and walk a few meters to
the Palazzo Bembo, which is next to the boat landing.
