... beam ceilings and all the amenities including a washing machine. But in Venice one hangs their clothes on the line to dry, and our line is out the bathroom window. So our neighbors are seeing our skivvies over the small canal beside the flat. Next we found a small pizza restaurant where it just so happens that Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie filmed a scene from the movie "The Tourist", and Depp drew a sketch on the ...
... pizza shops and gelato shops and souvenir shops everywhere you turned but we decided to skip out on lunch and enjoy a nice big Italian dinner. After the tour finished, everyone tipped our tour guide and we went our separate ways. The tour guide would have made at least €120 which is pretty hefty for two and a half hours work. I think they just do it as a 'free tour’ so they don’t have a pimp to pay money back to. We caught a ferry over to the islands off ...
Day 8 - June 27: Venezia Italy run with OB on the beach of the Lido next to the Adriatic Sea. We're three for three for running in different countries we've stayed in. The beach is not as beautiful as Hilton Head, but the run is harder: OB kicks my butt. After a sparse Italian breakfast, it's on the bus to board a boat to Murano. Rachel, Tony and I ditch the glass blowing tour and walk ...
... We went into MANY stores trying to top the first item we saw (a red & black glass asymmetrical beaded necklace - three large beads on a black rope). While on the hunt for the necklace, we still had something in mind for "us" as well. Nothing! ****!
THEN....we found this nice store with a woman behind the counter making necklaces. We asked (in Italian I might add) if she had anything other than what was out (her color story on display wasn't rocking ...

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.
Loved the location
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.
Das Hotel ist ziemlich neu und wenn die Zimmer für amerikanische Verhältnisse auch klein sind, sind sie doch gut ausgestattet. Unser Zimmer hatte zusätzlich zum Schlafzimmer noch einen kleinen Wohn/Ankleidebereich. Die Badezimmer sind mit Marmor ausgekleidet und haben herrliche Duschen. Das Frühstück war gut und das Personal war sehr entgegenkommend. Das Beste waren die großen, komfortablen Betten mit sehr feiner Bettwäsche!
Insgesamt genossen wir unseren Aufenthalt sehr und würden auch wieder in diesem Hotel übernachten. Sie verpassen zwar ein Zimmer mit Kanalblick, aber das machen der ruhige Innenhof, die Lage und der Preis wieder wett.
Very Nice Hotel but Beware of Dog
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!
I had expected all of the hotels in Italy to be old, uncomfortable, small, etc -- even w/ the pricer hotels I expected these things. But I found this hotel to be very modern, yet classic. Beautiful hardwood floors in the halls & in every room. Very modern bathroom, w/ nice shower, all marble. Very modern & space-saving detail in the room w/ the TV -- the Mirror on the dresser actually has the TV behind it!!!! So when you turn on the TV you are looking at it through the mirror.
The room was defintely smaller than standard American hotel rooms, but quite comfortable. The bed linens were very nice, not cheap stuff, and the pillows were down. I slept great here.
The free continental breakfast here was better than any others that I had in Rome or Venice at our hotels as it included a meat & cheese selection in addition to the standard pastries, croissants, etc.
AMAZING LOCACTION - very short walk to St Marks Square.
BEWARE of the dog in the courtyard who belongs to someone either at Al Codega or at Serenissma. He looks friendly and my husband, a dog lover, approached him to pet him, and the dog lunged at him, ripping through his jeans w/ his teeth, breaking the skin, tearing his jeans, and my husband still has a scar on his thigh from the dog. While, yes, my husband should not have been petting strange dogs, this dog also should not be left tied up in the common courtyard area as it is NOT a friendly dog at all. I'd hate to think of what would've happened if a little kid had tried to approach the dog to pet it.
