The Hotel Ala has long been a favorite of Venetophiles, so book early if you want a room.
The three-star, 82-room hotel is less than 10 minutes on foot from the Piazza San Marco. It's on the same small square as the Gritti Palace, one of Venice's most celebrated luxury hotels.
The Ala has a bar, a tea room, a roof terrace, and free Wi-Fi throughout the building.
Leave the Alilaguna boat and walk straight ahead, down the Calle Gritti, until the street widens into a small square.
The Hotel Ala will be directly ahead of you, on the left.
