Travel Blogs from Venice
Hi A little warmer today and the fog finally lifted! Yay! We even saw a little bit of sunshine in the afternoon. We took a trip to Burano Island were we had a nice stroll around the multi-coloured houses and then had some lunch before catching the ferry back home. We took advantage of the setting sun to take some final photos. Today is our final …
Hi All It is still very cold here in Venice. We only hit a top of two degrees today. It is still very foggy; not ideal for photos. We are hoping for some sun and clouds tomorrow for our last day here. We spent most of the day just wandering around, off the beaten track and we managed to get ourselves lost several times. All good fun. We are really …
Hi We travelled from Florence to Venice today and arrived to a freezing two degrees and super dense fog. We stepped off the train and the cold was like getting hit by a frozen kipper! It stayed very cold and foggy all day. Our hotel is fantastic. Definitely the best hotel so far. It is quite new and very well decorated with modern amenities yet …
... the jazz bar that was in the same square.
Having walked around for a while it was time to refuel. Breakfast two happened at a restaurant next to the Grand Canal, one up from where Peach and I had eaten previously. 15 euros later we had sat on the tables right next to the canal and had eaten a croissant each and drunk an orange juice for me and another cappuccino for mum.
Now feeling both full and a little queasy from the ...
... different and had a lovely day. A glass blowing place on Murano island offered hotel patrons a free water taxi service to the island to see glass blowing, we asked about this as we were leaving the hotel this morning only to find there was a taxi leaving in 10 minutes. We were met at the back door of our hotel and stepped straight onto the boat - we were the sole occupants and travelled via canals and then some open water across to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Al Codega Venice
Un posto fantastico
Questo è un hotel molto bello in una posizione fantastica. L'abbiamo trovato facilmente avendo scaricato la cartina dal sito web dell'hotel. Nel comnplesso lo consiglio vivamente.
Dies ist ein wirklich perfekt gelegenes Hotel um in Venedig zu übernachten - zuerst etwas schwer zu finden, aber wir luden einen sehr guten Stadtplan von der Hotel-Webseite herunter, den wir während unserer gesamten Zeit dort benutzten. Das Hotel selbst ist einwandfrei, das Zimmer etwas klein aber ausreichend und blitzblank-sauber, es gab jeden Tag frische Handtücher. Auch das Frühstück war in Ordnung, um in den Tag zu starten. Wir waren etwas enttäuscht, dass die Bar während unseres ganzen Aufenthalts dort nicht geöffnet war, aber da unser Zimmer eine Minibar hatte (für die man bezahlen musste!), kamen wir damit zurecht. Das Hotel ist buchstäblich 5 Minuten zu Fuß vom Markusplatz und der Rialtobrücke entfernt - es ist wirklich sehr zentral gelegen. Eine weitere Enttäuschung war, dass die Klimaanlage in unserem Zimmer nicht funktionierte und da es extrem warm war, hatten wir keine andere Wahl als die Fenster zu öffnen, und so wurden wir von Mücken gestochen und ab 7.30 Uhr morgens wird es auf den Straßen lebendig und bei geöffneten Fenstern war es ziemlich laut. Aber alles in allem war es ein fabelhafter Ausflug nach Venedig, wir können es gar nicht erwarten, wieder zurückzugehen und würden definitiv wieder im Hotel Al Codega übernachten, schon wegen seiner Lage.
This is a truly excellent location to stay in Venice, difficult to find at first but we downloaded a very good map from the hotel website which we used the entire trip. The hotel itself is immaculate, room smallish but adequate, immaculately clean, fresh towels each day. Breakfast again adequate to set us on our way, disappointed that the bar didnt open the entire time we stayed there but we managed as our room had a minibar (that had to be paid!) The hotel is literally 5 mins walk from St Marks SQ and 5 mins walk from Rialto Bridge - it really is a very central location. One other disappointment was that the aircon in our room was not working and as the weather was extremely warm while there we had no choice but to open the windows and got eaten by mosuitos, plus the streets tend to liven up from 730am and it was quite noisey with the windows open. But all in all a fabulous trip to Venice, we cannot wait to go back and would definitely revisit Hotel Al Codega for its location alone.
Schwierig zu finden!
Das Hotel liegt sehr praktisch zwischen Markusplatz und der Rialtobrücke. ABER die Karte auf Expedia zeigt es an einem völlig falschen Ort, deshalb druckten wir die Wegbeschreibung von der Hotelwebseite direkt aus. Diese Karte ist falsch! Ein sehr netter Restaurantbesitzer rief für uns im Hotel an und erklärte uns danach den Weg. Wir hätten es niemals alleine gefunden, da es in einem Innenhof einer kleinen Gasse ohne Beschilderung liegt. Ironischerweise ist die Karte zum Markusplatz und zur Rialtobrücke, die es an der Rezeption gibt, supergut.
Die Zimmer sind toll und beim Frühstück gibt es jede Menge Auswahl.
Hard to find!
Hotel is very well placed between St Mark's Square and Rialto Bridge. HOWEVER the map on Expedia shows it in totally the wrong area so we printed the one off the hotel's web site. This map is incorrect! A kind restaurant owner phoned the hotel and got directions for us. We would never have found it on our own as it is in a courtyard down an alley way with no sign to it! Ironically the map they have on the reception desk showing the way to St Mark's Square and Rialto Bridge is great.
Rooms are fine and plenty of choice of food for breakfast.
We booked a late deal through Expedia, without expecting too much. However, it turned out to be great - location initially difficult to find (we forgot to print out a map of central Venice - doh!) but easy once someone told us that we had to turn right at the Armani store (now that's a proper map reference). It was a very short walk to both St Marks Square and the Rialto Bridge - all in all, a perfect location. The quality of the refurb is fantastic - heavy silk embroidered curtains, sparkling marble floors, lift up to Reception and rooms, friendly and professional staff (so fluent in English it's humbling), and a wonderful, eat as much as you like Breakfast buffet. We did try to get a late night drink and a mid-afternoon cuppa in the Bar area, to no avail, but this was a tiny blot on an otherwise perfect landscape. The room was spotless -ample size overlooking rooftops and sky, with mini-bar and satellite TV, and the shower room fully equipped. We really recommend the Al Codega and would definitely stay here again.
We stayed four nights in Venice in the Hotel Al Codega. It is tucked away in a quiet courtyard, about 2 minutes walk to St. Mark's square in one direction and about 3 minutes to the Rialto in the other direction.
The hotel is quite new, and though the rooms are small by American standards, they were very well appointed. Our room had a little seating/dressing area in addition to the main bedroom. The bathrooms are all marble with great showers. The breakfast was good and the staff very accommodating. Best of all, the beds were large, comfortable, with very nice linens!
Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and would stay in this hotel again. What you lose in canal views, you make up for in the quiet courtyard, location and price.
Wir waren für 4 Nächte im Hotel Al Codega in Venedig. Es liegt versteckt in einem ruhigen Innenhof, in der einen Richtung nur 2 Gehminuten vom Markusplatz entfernt, und in der anderen sind es circa 3 Minuten bis zur Rialtobrücke.
I stayed here in Oct 2006 as part of a Rick Steves tour group. We were very fortunate to stay here -- we were supposed to stay at the "budget" sister hotel "Serenissima" next door, but that hotel was oversold & the put us in the BRAND NEW Hotel Al Codega, which was certainly a BIG upgrade!
