I found the staff to be very helpful, pleasant and responsive. The hotel is hard to find but I was prepared and had read through the other comments so I didn't have any trouble finding it. It's true that it is down a very narrow alley behind the Gazettino stand in the square. Look for the sign "Campo SS. Filippo e Giacomo" posted on the side of a building. Look to the left of the sign and you will see a small alley with a small hand lettered pointing to the Tiepolo. Walk down the alley and it's all the way day in a small alcove on the left. A couple small tips: free wifi is available but only in the front lobby area; the TVs work but you have to get used to the controls (just ask, they will be happy to help you); the rooms are air conditioned but it won't be like an icebox. The AC has a harder time when it is humid but I found that in the evenings when it cooled down outside, the AC worked better (however, I didn't find it uncomfortable during the day; just a bit more humid than usual). I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel's location could not be more central - in a busy and buzzy area just 150m or so east of St. Marco's Square, and 1 (very famous) canal from the Doge's Palace. 100% for location. Easy to find down an eastward-facing alley off the small bustling square at the junction of Calle dogli Albanesi and Calle Rasse. The hotel itself is understated - effort has been put into attractive modernisation with an 'austere' dramatic look, and this has been achieved in part. You can see what they are trying to achieve, but it is slightly unfinished - 1st floor (where the rooms are) can do with a little more drama and less austerity. The hotel staff were very pleasant and helfpful. Room 105 is austere but has high quality conveniences, and has the only balcony in the hotel. It is located at a bend in the quaintest of canals. The canal is busy all day / evening with gondoliers calling and crooners singing, so only book it if you are happy being part of the bustle of this wonderful city. We will be booking ourselves back into room 105 one day for sure. Remember to leave the sliding door slightly ajar if you go out on the balcony to savour the scene, or you may risk locking yourself out as we did. Apparently we were the first to do this ! :-) A passing gondola passenger alerted a tourist on the nearby bridge, who alerted a gondolier on the bridge and he strolled over to the Tiepolo to tell them we were stuck. Much mirth all round. We of course booked our gondola ride with our new gondolier friend.

The hotel was difficult to find. Directions stop at the square and don't mention the narrow passageway with entrance concealed round the corner. Room and bathroom were small. Breakfast room was also small and was ingenious use of a corridor. It was a pity there was no hotel bar or lounge area which we would have enjoyed in view of the very cold weather during our stay. The website suggests that the neighbouring restaurant with bar (which is in the same ownership as the hotel) forms part of the hotel, but it doesn't. The main advantage of the hotel was the excellent location so close to St Mark's Square.

This place has an awesome location! Conveniently located near the vaporetto and the piazza. I love the updated decor and bathroom! Only cons was insulation is poor (we can hear the tv from the other room). Pros: price, private bathroom, location, barista, breakfast, air-conditioning Cons: poorly insulated walls *** Note to travellers- Hotel is in an alley so if you can't find the property number its because entrance is snuckered away.

I had read extensive comments about the hotel, so there were no surprises for me. This hotel is HARD TO FIND. Streets in Venice are sometimes no more than narrow alleys, and Tiepolo is at the end of a narrow alleyway with nothing but a small, weathered, handwritten sign to show you the way. Some other travelers had posted pictures of the alley and the sign, which helped me considerably. The location is only 100 or 200 meters from St. Marco, which is the main area for arriving and leaving Venice. The location couldn't have been better, really. The "alley" to the hotel, connects to a lovely little square (one of very many in Venice) with good shopping and food in abundance. We took a private water taxi from the airport to the hotel, and returned to the hotel on a public boat. The private water taxi was 110 euros (one way) for between 1 & 4 passengers. The public boat was 15 euros per person one way. The water taxi made the trip in around 20 minutes, the public boat took 90 minutes. I had imagined that the private water taxi might drop us directly at the hotel, since I knew it was on a small canal, but no such luck. It dropped us about 150 meters away with instructions to "go straight then across the bridge, turn left and then you'll get to a square and the hotel is there." Ha! Venice is a rats-nest of small streets, canals, bridges, and dead ends. At one point I left my girlfriend standing alone in a small open square in front of a church with our luggage while I reconnoitered. We managed to find the hotel, but it takes a lot of patience and reasonable advanced preparation. To be fair, all of Venice is difficult to navigate -- especially for us as this was the first time there. Even with a map in your hand, it's tough, as about 90% of the streets on the map are not marked with street names, and the scale of the map the hotels provide is not really suitable for finding your way in the maze that is Venice. The staff at the hotel were ple

First time in Venice, and we had a great time! The hotel is ideally located (5minutes from San Marco Square). It's clean, well renovated and with a really helpfull staff. Room and bathroom had a good size and it was well equiped. Just 2 minus: *it's hard to find, so print a detailled map of the area as the street is not on most of the guides and as many Venicians don't know this street. *Our room was cold and the heating system was not properly working... just 18.5°c in our room. BUT the helpull receptionnist gave us an extra blanket. To conclude I RECOMMAND this hotel for its perfect location and good prices.

Not so hard to find even though we had to ask a few cafes before seeing the alley. Its really just walking straight down the road from san zaccaria stop and if you turn left at the end of the street, you end up in a small square. The alley is in the right of the square and is tiny with a really small sign, but apart from that its pretty easy to find. Location wise is perfect less than 5 minutes from st marks square and the price is not bad for student budget.

When we arrived nobody was at the front desk, but there was a phone to call a representative who came over immediately from the neighboring hotel. Great location and the bathrooms are newly remodeled and we had one attached to our room (no sharing!!!). A great find in Venice.

San Marco is very near but the Piazza (Campo SS. Filippo e Giacomo) has its own character and you get an espresso with one euro in the corner bar! The dark alley to the entrance of the hotel is fascinating and seems to lead only to a family house. The hotel overlooks also a small canal with passing gondolas. You might not see them but some of the gondoliers even sing. Rooms are really small and basic and a bit gloomy but the ceiling is high and has original (old) looking wooden beams, and the bathroom shines. Comfortable place for a short stay as a base for exploring Venice.

A great location, good breakfast (especially the made-to-order cappucino!), very clean room and fantastic value for money. We couldn't fault this hotel. Follow the directions and the hotel is down a little alley way (next to the chemist) off the square. It is in a great location and is very close to St Marks Square which is useful to use as a landmark as it is very easy to get wonderfully lost in the small streets of Venice. We had a great break here and would highly recommend the Hotel Al Tiepolo.

What a wonderful find. The staff were helpful and friendly. We had a room with canal view, which was great. Only a few minutes from St Marks. Great for getting there on the water bus, the stop is only minutes away. Breakfast was better than many we've had in Venice, cooked meats, cheese, fruit, rolls, yogurts, fruit juice etc more than enough to set you up for the day. A great plus was we didn't have to hand our key in when we went out, so there was no waiting about to get it back. The room was bigger than many we've had, mini fridge was really useful. Cases are not left in a public area if you leave them after checking out, they are put away behind the desk. Would stay there again without doubt.

A nice hotel, close to the main touristic attractions. The breakfast was varied, the employees only could take care of the flies that appeared because of the high temperature. We booked a room with view to a small canal, what was nice to see the gondolas. There was a funny shower in the room, with several water jets that made a kind of massage. I recommend the hotel, and for sure I´ll be back there if I return to Venice.

We got some discount to eat in a nearby restaurant which is recommended by the Lonely planet guide. Location is just perfect just stones from St Marks Square. The room had a balcony to the canal and we could see how gondolas passing by. The only dissadvantage is that no lift is there but as it is Venice is not a child friendy place as none was babychairs for eating and obviously the bridges are tough to cross. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Venice.

We stayed at this property for 3 days, as the second part of our honeymoon, after visiting Rome for 3 days. The comments on the internet about how hard it was to find the property were very helpful, we were prepared and found the property very easily. The hotel sent us an email with clear directions. Watch out for the handwritten sign on the wall in the mini square, when u walk from the San Zaccaria vaporetto stop. The location of the property is excellent; 3 mins to San Marco. The completely renovated property seamed like a great find in Venice and the room was actually spacious compared to usual European hotels and the city! The mini fridge in the room was great and the water was actually cheaper than what u would find in the street. Good breakfast. We loved it and would certainly return!

Very nice, stylish hotel. Pretty, stylish rooms: on the small side (no space for a closet, you need to hang your clothes or put them in a small chest of drawers), but in Venice, this is quite normal. Cute bathrooms. Great location: 5 min walk from Piazza S. Marco, but the area isn't totally overrun by tourists. Very friendly staff. The hotel is difficult to find, especially if you arrive at night. It is at the end of a cul-de-sac in a kind of niche, and late at night, when the light is switched off, it does not look like a hotel entrance at all.

I stayed there over the Easter. I had difficulty finding teh hotel as there were no proper signs. I was given room on the ground floor with only one small window near the ceiling, it smelled 'funny' and was close next to the breakfast 'hallway', so I was waken up by the hotel staff preparing the table early in the morning.I was allocated a triple instead of a single, that I booked, and it looked nothing like the pictures on the web-site. The hotel is central,but I would not stay there again, afraid I might get the same room again.

My wife and I, together with my mother, were following our son, who is a member of New College Choir, to Venice. Here they would be singing mass at St. Marks Basilica. The Al Tiepolo was really conveniently situated for all we needed. We caught the vaporetto from the train station to San Zaccaria and followed the instructions to the hotel. It was easy to do this even with wheeled suitcases. It was useful though to know that the hotel is down a very narrow alley off the piazzeta. I would say that a better, more permanent looking, sign down the alley would be worthwhile. From the hotel it is less than 5 minutes walk to the basilica and the square and the doge's palace, which was marvellous. Other than this we just walked around to some other more distant spots. My biggest gripe about the place was the price of water. We had bought quite a bit of pricey water, so were thankful to bump into a 'supermarket' where it was €0.49 for 1.5 litres! We actually walked past another 'supermarket' so they can be found with a bit of persistence. We really liked the hotel. It is quite small, I counted 11 rooms, but very tastefully converted out of what was probably quite run-down. The rooms were a fair size (we had a single and a double which both had an ensuite) and were perfectly adequate for our needs. Breakfast was adequate rather than generous, but no complaints. The public areas are small, and others have discussed the shared staffing situation. This did not cause us any difficulties, and they also allowed us to store our suitcases during the day (ready for a late flight). Catching a boat from San Zaccaria to the airport was 'really cool' as well, a good way to finish.

Al Tiepolo was a decent if not very characterful place to stay in Venice but with all the history at your fingertips it's probably good to have a simple place to go back to. The hotel is located VERY conveniently near the vaporetto stop which is very hand if you have luggage. I agree with others that it is a bit difficult to find at first as for venice first-timers such as myself it is hard to believe that the crack in the wall could possibly be a street ;-)) There is a small hand-written sign now. Enjoy, it's a great location, and a very good price-quality ratio for Venice.

The hotel it's placed in a perfect spot, a little square closer to Piazza San Marco. It's easy to find the square, following the web suggestions, but once there it's impossible to find the door of the hotel, because it's at the end of a narrow "street" with no exit. The rooms are very nice and quiet. Good rate.

The location was great, the only real downside was the noise and LED lights associated with room electricity/controls. They also gave a discount card to use at their restaurants which is a nice gesture but unfortunately use of the card causes adverse reaction from waiters ruining a delightful meal!

The hotel was a modern facility, newly renovated with an eye to younger tastes. The price was exceptionally good, especially given the location and our time of stay (weekend during Carnival). The only complaint I have is that the reception is frequently unattended because the hotel splits its staff with another hotel across the street. This meant that frequently, we found the hotel door locked and would have to chase down a staff member. Also, there is some noise between the rooms. If your neighbors are loud, then you can have a conversation with them. Aside from this, the experience was excellent and I would definitely stay there again!

A great little gem in the heart of venice. We got a good deal for a triple room. The staff were great, breakfast nice, room lovely and modern and great decore. The breakfast room overlooked the canal which was nice. Its a very small and very modern (interior) hotel. I would well recommend it. It's near st marks square and not too difficult to find - they sent a map in advance. Just don't put the price up or tell too many people!

The hotel was very obscure and hard to find... there is a very obscure cardboard sign pointing into an alley. We thought we were staying IN the hotel, but after a not-so-warm-welcome, we had to drag our bags two minutes away from the hotel to an apartment (probably recently acquired). After our initial frustration settled, we realized the apartment was spare in decoration, but spacious with a nice bathroom and kitchen and two bedrooms (two doubles and a twin... prefect for a family). Fortunately, the windows still overlooked a small canal. We kept our windows open, hence it was loud with passerbys, but that was just part of our experience. We had our own keys. We had to walk to the hotel each morning for breakfast as it was included. The staff spoke good english, but did not know alot of things, like the code to get on the internet. One staff member went above and beyond in helping us with departure plans, as our plane left @ 0600, so we had to be on a water "bus" at 0400 to mainland where we caught a bus. DO NOT get a water "taxi" as these are more appropriately Limos and cost 100 euros for a short ride. Get an ACTV card for 12 euros/24 hours/person for unlimited rides on water bus.

Das Hotel Al Tiepolo weist einige Nachteile auf, derer man sich bewusst sein muss. Die Reception ist nicht immer besetzt: dann ist die Haustüre geschlossen und man muss im benachbarten Hotel Rio Begleitung holen gehen. Das Gepäck muss man eine Treppe hochschleppen, ohne Hilfe angeboten zu erhalten. Auf der Treppe riecht es unangenehm, wohl nach einem Putzmittel. An diese Treppe schliesst ein Gang an, welcher als einziger Frühstücksraum dient. Die Klimaanlage ist zu laut, um sie nachts laufen zu lassen. Ende September war es im Zimmer ohnehin zu kalt. Das WC ist so klein, dass man es kaum richtig benutzen kann. Schön sind die moderne Einrichtung, die indirekte Beleuchtung und die hohe Holzbalkendecke. Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet.

Staff was very helpful, courteous, and colorful. We had a very nice stay. Humorous to see that the front desk wore many "hats." Frustrating many times that the front desk was not a the desk a majority of the time. Later found out that this position was staffed part-time and the rest of the time, it shared an employee with the neighboring hotel. You'd have to go next door to get the front desk person. Also frustrating, they would lock the front door to the hotel and you'd have to go next door for them to open the hotel to let you in. Hard to find also. You had to walk down a 2' wide, dark, and smelly alley about 25' long, turn left, to get to the entrance.

The directions for this hotel need to be updated with which vapperato stop to get off and be more clear. We were lost for an hour, lugging our suitcases around Venice. Very frustrating, but when we did get there everything was great except when we came home at 2 am and the lobby was locked. We were able to go to the hotel next door and they lest us in, but why would the lobby ever be locked. We were on vacation and are going to stay out late!!

I stayed here 24 -27 December, and was very pleased with my accomodation. Pre-arrival I'd been sent an e-mail with a map, directions and water bus/taxi options, which was helpful as this was my first visit to Venice. Situated off Campo SS Filippo e Giacomo,I was within 2 minutes of St Marks Square. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, giving me advice about places to visit and things to do. There are 12 rooms, I was in 101 which as a double for single use was great (I'm used to being put in a tiny box room as a single traveller) Light and airy decoration - laminate wood floors, cream curtains and bedding (an antidote to the usual 'venetian decor') Modern bathroom fittings, with shower cubicle. (The towels are of the cotton sheet variety, so if you prefer fluffy towels, bring your own) Out of my window, I had a narrow view of the canal.I think some rooms face into the Campo, so not sure of how noisy these are. I think all of the bedrooms were up a flight of stairs, so might be difficult for anyone with mobility problems. The hotel website gives more info/pictures Breakfast (continental buffet - salami, cheeses, yogurt, fruit, cakes, bread rolls and jams etc. coffee/tea/hot chocolate) was eaten downstairs in the narrow breakfast area, or in your room. In the Campo is the Hotel Rio,and 2 restaurants Al'Aciugheta (The Anchovy) and Maison De Laurent, which are all under the same management as Al Tiepolo. I ate twice at 'The Anchovy'(Pizzas, fish, meat, pasta dishes) The Laurant was closed - more expensive, but appeared to have some imaganitive dishes on their menu (You are given a discount card at the hotel for 10% off food and drinks at these 2 restaurants). There are quite a variety of bars, restaurants, shops within a few steps of the hotel. As a solo female traveller, I found Al Tiepolo and its location to be very satisfactory.

Nous avons eu un seul problème : le tableau éléctrique se trouve dans la chambre et le notre faisait un bruit de centrale. Nous devions donc couper l'electricité pour la nuit et donc .. le chauffage. Les charmantes jeunes filles de la réception en étaient désolées mais ... rien, ni changement de chambre, ni rabais sur le prix, ni cadeau , ... En plus, il n'y a pratiquement aucune isolation entre les chambres, alors il reste à souhaiter que les voisins ne regardent pas la television trop tard. Dommage, l'hotel est joli et bien situé.

We enjoyed our stay in Tiepolo and its location is certainly a plus (less than 5 minutes walk from San Marco). All the hotel was clean (rooms and public areas) and the equipment is very new. Perhaps the price is a bit high, especially for the spaciousness of the rooms and the small breakfast buffet. However, all in all, we would certainly return if we go back to Venice.

The triple room is actually more a double room with an extra bed. There is no real place for clothes to hang or to put somewhere in the room or in the bathroom. The Hotel is managed through another Hotel nearby. So sometimes one has to ask the other hotel to open the door to the Hotel. For the price we paid this is a little too much. The best advantage is that the Hotel is close to St. Markus square. Therefore good for a night but not longer.

Very good 2 night stay in a small but beautifully refurbished old building. The entrance is really difficult to find and you occasionally have to go accross the square to the sister hotel to get staff to let you in, but for a three star hotel the Tiepolo is really nicely done, with lots of marble, and real wood to accompany the old oak beams of the palazzo. Well situated in Castello, close but not too close to San Marco. Ideally quiet and relaxing.

How to reach Hotel Tiepolo

By car
From Piazzale Roma, the closest point to Venice which is accessible by car, take waterbus line 1 (50 minutes) or 51 (25 minutes) to the San Zaccaria stop. From there, head straight to the end of Calle delle Rasse then turn left into Campo SS. Filippo e Giacomo where the property is located.
If you decide to park on Tronchetto Island take waterbus line no.2 to San Zaccaria where you may have to cross over the bridge on your left, then turn into Calle delle Rasse and proceed as above.

By train
From the Santa Lucia railway station, take waterbus line 1 or 51 to the San Zaccaria stop. From there, head straight to the end of Calle delle Rasse then turn left into Campo SS. Filippo e Giacomo where the property is located.

By airplane
From Venezia-Marco Polo Airport, take the Alilaguna shuttle service to St. Mark's Square (departures every hour). From there, follow the water edge until you reach the Doge's Palace, then cross over the Ponte della Paglia bridge and take the first small street on your left (Calle degli Albanesi).
A private watertaxi from the airport is faster but considerably more expensive.
