ABOVE: The Hotel Wildner and a street lamp
on the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront. INSET BELOW: The hotel at night,
and breakfast overlooking the water.
Location: Flanked by luxury hotels
on the Riva degli Schiavoni, overlooking the St. Mark's waterfront near
the Piazza San Marco. Closest
Alilaguna Airport Boat
stop: San Zaccaria.
You've always dreamed of staying at a hotel like the Danieli or the
Metropole, but you're still waiting to win the lottery.
If location means more to you than luxury or prestige, the Wildner will
do you proud: Some rooms have views of the water, and so does the
year-round terrace restaurant where breakfast is served. (Word of warning: The
Wildner doesn't have an elevator, so it may not be your best choice if
you're traveling with heavy luggage or can't manage stairs.)
In the upper satellite image, the
Hotel Wildner is just to the left of the green awning near the right
side of the frame. Other landmarks in the photo are the Doge's
Palace and the Bridge of Sighs (left) and the San Zaccaria waterbus
The second photo is a close-up. Look for the
"Pensione Wildner" sign above the white roof of the hotel's
four-season restaurant and breakfast terrace.
