Hotel Al Sole, VeniceThe Hotel Al Sole looks more expensive than it is: It's a Venetian Gothic palazzo from the early 1400s (owned by the same family for half a millennium) complete with a private courtyard and garden where breakfast is served in good weather. Its 51 guest rooms and junior suites are decorated in subdued Venetian style, with some facing the canal and others overlooking the garden. Triples and quads are available.
