ABOVE: The Falier's wooden doors, with gold
lettering on the glass, give a hint of the decor in the lobby. INSET
BELOW: A view of the façade, and the hotel entrance.
Location: Close to a canal on the
Salizzada San Pantalon, a few minutes east of the Piazzale Roma.
on a budget, you're arriving or departing by airport bus or train, and
you like the idea of a small hotel with a long-standing reputation for
value and service.
The Falier is no more than a seven- to 10-minute walk from the
Piazzale Roma, or slightly
longer if you're walking from the
the hotel, you it's only a few more minutes to the
Campo Santa Margherita and the Frari Church. (Allow 20 or 30 minutes
to reach the Piazza San Marco
via the Accademia Bridge,
assuming that you
follow the signs and don't get lost.)
The hotel has 19 single, double, and twin rooms, all with air
conditioning, private bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi. When the weather is
nice, you can have breakfast in the Falier's private garden.
The first image shows the Piazzale Roma (where
airport buses and
land taxis arrive and
depart) and the railroad station (top). Look for the
Fondamenta del Gafaro in the bottom right corner: The Hotel Falier
is on the opposite side of the canal, near the edge of the picture.
In the second photo, the Hotel Falier is on the far
right side of the frame. (It's the narrow rose-colored building next
to the white palazzo.)
