Hotel Sofiador - Murano

The two-star Hotel Al Soffiador bills itself as "unsophisticated and friendly," so snobs may want to go elsewhere.

Hotel Al Sofador signOther visitors to Murano, Venice's glassmaking island, are likely to find the tiny 9-room hotel more appealing: Al Soffiador has earned high satisfaction scores from Venere,, and TripAdvisor, and it has an attractive, central location on a tree-lined street where guests can dine or drink at ourdoor restaurants in the summertime.

From Venice's Marco Polo Airport, it's easy to reach the Hotel Al Sofiador via the Alilaguna Linea Blu airport boat. (It's about a five-minute walk from the Murano Colonna stop to the hotel, with one small bridge to cross.)

How to reach the Hotel Al Soffiador from the Alilaguna Linea Blu stop at Murano Colonna:
