Excellent location and a beautiful historic building. The room was large with excellent shower. The staff were friendly and accommodating. My only criticism would be the (included) breakfast which was disappointingly basic and diners had to contend with feral pigeons jumping on to tables to scavenge as soon as they left their table to get, for example, another coffee. The Grande Scuola of San Rocco is very close and essential if one likes Tintoretto.

The mattresses were VERY firm, as in slab-like. Our room facing the canal was too noisy, from motor-boats using the canal and foot traffic right outside our room. So we moved to a garden-view room, it was much better. Hotel staff treated us very well and breakfast was quite good.

The hotel was perfect for our needs.The staff was helpful from check-in time to when they called for a water taxi for us at check-out.The hotel location was ideal for a few days in Venice-close to all transportation needs and in a quiet area for rest-time.There are enough places to eat within easy strolling distance.Gondolas can be caught right in front of the hotel for a more relaxing experience than riding one near St. Mark's Square.The air conditioning worked great through-out the building.Shower pressure was good.The courtyard was closed for renovation but should be ready in two weeks (mid-July).

My family of 4 stayed here - mom, dad, and 2 teens. We were simply thrilled. I found the rooms to be spacious, and this is not always the case in Europe! We booked 2 triple rooms since I was worried about space. We wouldn't have had to do this. Two doubles would have been plenty large. The rooms themselves were also very quiet. I never heard other guests. The hotel is in a terrific location. It is convenient to the train and bus stations and the vaporetto. It isn't right on the Grand Canal, but we found this to be a plus. It was much quieter but there were plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. It is great for families or anyone. (From what I saw during our 5 day stay, it was about 1/4 families, so don't worry if you don't like kids.) The staff is so welcoming. They were gracious and saw to our every need. They even helped my daughter practice her Italian. I am really picky about cleanliness and always bring my own cleaning supplies when I travel. This was not a problem at all. The rooms were extremely clean as were the linens. They have an elevator, air conditioning, and all rooms have private bathrooms. The only thing I thought that was mediocre was the breakfast. It was simply "ok" - not horrible, but "ok." But, this wouldn't keep me from going here again. If I were to go back to Venice, I would book here again. This may be a listed as a 3 star hotel, but it is more like a 4 star. I loved it!

This certainly wasn't the fanciest hotel we've stayed at, but it was a good value for the price and the hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We followed the recommendations of the front desk manager for lunch and dinner, and we were not disappointed either time. The breakfast at the hotel had a fair selection, and we enjoyed being able to eat on the covered patio. This hotel is a bit off the beaten path, but Venice is so small and walkable that it just made for a slightly quieter experience than in other hotels.

Staff was excellent, very welcoming and helpful with suggested eating establishments, proposed itineraries, sites to see, etc. We had 2 rooms (one 3 person, one 2 person). The 3 person room was quite big and the 2 person room was a bit small. Prices were high, but it's Venice so that's to be expected. Location was only about a 10 min walk from P. Roma but over 2 bridges with stairs (can be an issue if you have large suitcases).

Al Sole is very well located in a lovely old Palazzo, and the garden is fine, but not all as advertised. The room was tiny, which was expected, but very dark nd dingy, looking out against a wall two feet away -- no view, no light. Bathroom was modernized and very good however, and the breakfast buffet was very good. The wine bar in the hotel was never open, and the daytime concierge was not helpful or hospitable. Thankfully, one doesn't go to Venice for the hotels, and the weather was great during our stay so we didn't have to spend too much time in the Hotel itself.

I stayed at the Hotel Alsole with my husband for Valentines. We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was very clean and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The Venice carnival was on whilst there and we had a fabulous time wandering around and through the tiny streets. I would recommend this hotel, although the room was small, but you spend so little time in your room that it did not matter. The hotel itself is lovely with a welcoming reception and lovely breakfast area. Our room faced the canal - lovely view every morning. The staff were helpful with suggestions and the quickest way to get to the sites

Al Sole is a lovely hotel in a converted Palazzo. The location is perfect for those traveling by train as it is only a 10 min. walk from the train station. The concierge, Luca, is extremely helpful and common areas are lovely, including the breakfast garden. Al Sole is on a secondary canal in a beautiful location. The concierge recommended several good restaurants in the immediate area and gave us a map, circling areas of interest. The only negative is a bar next door and its extremely noisy patrons. We were there three nights and two of them were awakened by the noise of a large group drinking outside the bar, singing/yelling loudly and jumping into the canal. Fortunately, Sunday nights the bar is closed. Our room was on the front of the hotel with a great view of the canal. I would presume that those occupying the rooms in the back don't have the problem with the obnoxious bar patrons next door.

Totalmente recomendable. Un precioso palacio del siglo XIV, perfectamente ubicado junto a un canal y cerca de las estaciones de tren y autobuses. Sin pedirlo (y sin cobrarnos más por ello, como es habitual en Venecia) nos dieron una habitación con vistas al canal (una delicia). Trato muy amable y eficaz. El desayuno se hacía en un jardín precioso, lo único malo era el café. Buena relación calidad precio. Repetiremos.

We had a wonderful 5 days in venice. The hotel was in a perfect location about five minutes from the bus terminus. The hotel did not serve meals other than breakfast which was lovely and in the garden area. There are lots of restaurants in the vicinity, the most special meal we had was a lunch on the canalside at Rialto bridge - expensive but worth every penny.

We had a "superior" room which was very clean and comfortable with a nice canal view. Space was limited but one expects that given the age and type of building. The location is quiet in the evenings but within easy reach of many great locations, particularly if you want to avoid the main tourist areas of San Marco and the Rialto Bridge. The hotel is located within an easy 5 min walk from Piazza Roma, which was great as we arrived at 9.45pm. Staff are friendly and helpful. The only downside is breakfast. The choice is limited and the quality not great but munching a croissant in the hotel garden watching the birds steal food from other tables is not a bad way to start the day.

Perfect location for early/late arrivals & departures - it isn't even as far from the bus ststion as it looks on the map! In a quiet area, but just a few minutes walk from a selection of bars and restaurants (whilst some were chut during our February stay, there was still a good variety to choose from). Room was small and bathroom very small, but both were clean and adequate for a city break. The mini bar was a nice touch (but take your own kettle if you want a hot drink in your room). Breakfast was buffet style, with something for everyone and a good way of filling up before heading off for the day.

Lovely old building being renovated. We were in newly refurbished rooms with adjustable heating which was a boon as the weather was very cold. We liked the fact that although modernised they had kept original features. Showers were snug, but that was OK. If you are very large it might be a problem. The hotel was in an ideal position - ie as previously mentioned - 5 mins from Piazzale Roma where transport from airport arrives, as well as central for all of Venice which is all easily walkable. Staff were very helpful & friendly.

We booked a Double Superior room (2 floor). The website described it as a room with garden view or cannal view...neitherone! Tiny window overlooking a wall 6 feet away. Room was very very, small, but bathroom was new. Nice breakfast area. The pub next door can be loud late at night, but in general is a quiet area of Venice...but far from the main attractions. One advantage is it's proximity to the bus station, specially if you are dragging your bags...it is just 5 minutes from the airport shuttle stop. Train station is 15 min away but must cross over Ponte Scalzi...hard to do with luggage!

A special occasion so we blew the budget on a Superior room and had a wonderful stay, with heartstopping outlook on three sides over canals (serenaded by a flotilla of gondoliers every evening) at the front, gardens at the back and a typical tall, narrow Ventian street at the side. It was noisy, with the street cafe at night and boats unloading in the morning but hey, they were boats not lorries!! Expensive, but anywhere in Venice is expensive. Getting there was easier than we had feared - airport bus to Piazzala Romana and just five minutes walk to the hotel. You do have to walk to get anywhere e.g. for restaurants, but the streets are wonderful and it's just 15 minutes to the Rialto or waterbuses to everywhere from the Piazzala Romana.

We chose this hotel because it was near the port. It was also very close to the Piazzale Roma where one could find taxis, buses and Vaporetos. The train station was also nearby to visit other towns. The room was a bit tight but clean and the bathroom was very clean. The public areas were nice...the garden was very pretty and the breakfast was very ample. It is in a quiet neighborhood with a few restaurants in the area. It was an enjoyable walk to St. Marks Square and the Realto bridge. I highly recommend this hotel for it's location and it's price.

We booked a four days stay in "al sole" and were not so pleased to get a room (nr.220)in the back of the hotel wich is not displayed on the website. The room was very quiet and the beds were very comfortable. Not very nice was that the corner behind the minibar must have been soaking wet during the winter so that the wallpaper was hanging down and some interesting muoldornaments decorated the wall. Except this the hotel is situated in a nice part of Venice from where you can easily reach reach all parts of the city. Service, breakfast were as you can expect for this category and the booking through Venere worked reliable. I would choose this hotel again but try to get another room

We stayed in July 2005. This hotel was gorgeous and in an excellent location. Staff were welcoming and helpful on arrival and we even got our bags carried to the room. We loved the oldy worldy decor and the room was very spacious (although we did have a double superior). Great breakfast in a lovely courtyard and the hotel is easy to find - very close to the train & bus stations and walking distance from all the sights and in our opinion - the nicer end of town. We couldn't have wished for a better hotel with excellent views over the canal and the courtyard - would definitely stay here again.

HIGHLY recommended! Great location in the back streets of old Venice - 2 min walk from bus station and 10-15 min walk from Rialto. My wife and I had a wonderful room (with great en-suite facilities) overlooking the canal, and whilst the noise outside at night from passers-by was quite spirited, this was not a problem once we'd worked out how to close the inner window and switch the air-con on. Really friendly and helpful staff, a basic but excellent choice of breakfast - cereals, croissants, rolls, ham, cheese, yoghurt, fruit juices etc. Great value for money!

The hotel is located in a quiet part of Venice, close to the bus station (this is important, it is uncomfortable to walk around Venice and its bridges with your luggage), but not far away from the Gran Canale. It is very nice and comfortable. But, THERE IS NO INTERNET IN THE ROOMS! This is not true, I expected a broadband connection but they said I should use the normal phone connection, then they couldn't even give me a number to dial in Italy to connect my modem, I finally told me to go to an Internet Café. This was rather annoying since I use the Internet for my job. They said WI-FI is on the way, but in the meantime don't count on having Internet in your room or anywhere else in the hotel.

Bonjour, Nous avons été très surpris du manque de fraîcheur des chambres par rapport au prix demandé. Une de nos deux chambres a été changée après la première nuit car son état était inacceptable. La salle à manger du breakfast souffre également du même défaut. Le breakfast est plutôt médiocre par rapport à l'annonce et n'est certainement pas continental(petits pains et croissants indigestes). Ceci dit, le personnel est charmant et l'accueil, ainsi que le suivi du séjour, ont été soignés. la situation géographique de l'hôtel nous a semblé idéale. Venise reste donc très cher en rapport qualité-prix. Ce que nous avons accepté là-bas ne le serait certainement pas ailleurs. Pourriez-vous expliquer cependant pourquoi vous étiez plus chers que d'autres qui fournissent l'accès au même hôtel?

The room I was in was tiny and rather shabby (although the bathroom was very clean). The noise was definitely a problem - I could hear my neighbors taking shower, etc. Apparently they have better rooms for twins and doubles, and the public area was lovely. The staff members were mostly very warm and welcoming. And the location - five minutes from the bus station - is very convenient. Not recommended if you are a single traveller, but might be worth checking out if you are travelling in couples or groups.
