Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Al Piave Venice
We loved our stay here. They upgraded our room to a small apartment style room on the third floor when we arrived! It was clean and comfortable. Even had a small washing machine. You won't regret staying here.
Thanks for the advice!
My husband and I stayed at Al Piave for three nights in Venice and we were very happy and greatful to have found this place. We had wheels on our two suitcases and found that the walk from the Vaparetto stop to the hotel was very manageable (about 10 minutes). The hotel is very conveniently located, walking distance to anything you may want to go to. We had a room on a different street than the main hotel. It was about a one minute walk away. The alley was clean, very quiet and it was really nice to come back to a tucked away place after a busy day of being around so many other people in the tourist spots. The room itself had a small living room with a tv and the bedroom was very clean and nicely decorated. The airconditioning worked well and the bathroom was also very clean and modern. The price was very reasonable and we wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again. My only bit of advice would be if possible try to find people to share a water taxi with from the airport to the island (it should be about a 30 min ride if going direct). We took the public water vaparetto and to get to the main stop (San Marco) took one hour in this boat in which we were packed in quite tightly.......after a very long journey, it was a bit nauseating to be on a crowded boat for that long.
A great find in an expensive city
Cute hotel within 2 mins walk to heart of Venice (San Marco square).
Clean, comfy, modern, quiet room. Queen bed, decent size room and bathroom (with shower doors and all!). Staff speaks English. Breakfast included. Be prepared for sticker shock - Venice is REALLY expensive.
After realizing the rates at other hotels, we felt almost fortunate to book this hotel at $200 USD per nite (2 people, mid-Sept). We would defintely stay here again.
Our family (wife and I, two teenage boys) stayed here in two double rooms in June 2002. Although the most expensive place we stayed on our trip, it was worth it. It's a little off the beaten path, but with plenty of places to eat nearby, and it's very quiet. The staff was excellent, the breakfast very nice, and the room was pleasant, though smallish. We'd stay there again without any second thoughts.
Al Piave was great
We stayed at AlPiave from June 17 to June 22 2003. We were at a separate apartment two venician blocks from the Hotel. The apartment was great. Great air conditioner, great beds, and closer to the vaporetto than the hotel itself. We loved our stay. Thanks Frommer and Rick for telling us about Al Piave.

The hotel Al Piave was a terrific find in Venice. The location was perfectly located between San Marco and Rialto so you could choose whichever vaparetto stop was most convienient. The room we had was very clean and had it's own private balcony. Mirella and her husband do a great job running the place. They are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good too. I would highly recommend this hotel and trust me, I'm picky!
Stayed here for 3 nights May 2003, and it's good if you are prepared to eat out. They serve breakfast, but no cooked meals. I had a double room, which was cosy.... not enough room to swing a cat or to luxuriate in the shower. But don't let that put you off!It's a couple of minutes walk from St Marks Square, and yes it can be difficult to find. At one end of Ruga Giuffa is a major church, so head for the church and the square it's in, and cross over the bridge and you'll see the hotel almost immediately.Good friendly staff as well.
very convenient hotel, within minutes from san marco and the rialto. excellent breakfast, with friendly staff. i have stayed here twice and have felt like this is my home in venice.
Their apartments are great!
The Al Piave has cute little apartments they rent that have one bedroom and a fold out couch. While their free breakfast was great, it was also nice to be able to cook in our own room to save a little money on other meals. The nicest surprise was that there was a very small washing machine in the apartment. This was great after having been traveling for two weeks.
Loved the Piave
We were last at the Al Piave in May, 2000. The hotel is at the first vaporetta stop after St. Marks' Square. It took a little doing to find it the first time but was well worth it. Like most hotels in Venice, it had only about 40 rooms. The rooms were nice and although the bathrooms (as is typical in these kinds of hotels) was small, it was very clean.
The prices were amazingly low for Venice. This hotel is an unknown jewel and I would recommend it for anyone going to Venice.

... the fish nibble off the dead skin. It was freaky at first because I was holding my feet over the aquarium and the fish were jumping up like they were so excited to bite into me. Then they swarm you and it is ticklish, but you get used to it. After ten minutes I was ready to walk another 5 miles. Now my feet feel smooth. So after 6 miles of walking and a few breaks in between ( our last authentic Italian lunch - pizza and salad) we headed out for the ...

... good photo but struggled due to various moorings and then began wandering the Rialto Markets. These markets date back to the end of the 11th century where they became the centre for commerce after the Rialto area flourished as the first part of Venice to be developed. We did pass through the souvenir stalls and I found my yellow bag I wanted and wandered around looking at some of the food stuffs etc before heading back to our apartment for a relax before our adventuring tomorrow.
... full day in Rome, we once again had a full day booked. Whereas on our first day we had strolled around the Colosseum and Circus Maximus et. al, today we would be buying tickets and exploring inside the ruins. But first, we were jumping off of the bus a little earlier to go and visit the Church of the Immaculate Conception, once home to the Order of the Capuchin Monks. These guys are serious monks, very much into the poverty, chastity vows, to the extent that they have strict rules about ...
