    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Al Piave Venice

    Great hotel


    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.

    Loved 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!

    Great position


    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.

    Great hotel


    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.

    ... open and check out the gorgeous view of a quiet canal. We then headed for Piazza San Marco, winding our way through the maze of streets and canals, stopping for a mid-afternoon snack of espresso and pastry along the way. We walked through a rather non-descript arch, and were deposited into the Piazza. All I can say is wow. If there is a ‘town square’ in Europe that rivals Grand Place in Brussels, this is ...

    What a busy and jam packed day Venice was for the Kives family! This was our disembarkation day from the ship, and the day for us to explore Venice. Once we had finally gone through the madness of getting off the ship (which actually wasn't so bad since it was around 930 am). The four of jammed into a taxi and went on our merry little way to our hotel.
    Once we were settled and ready to go, we went to the train station so we could explore Venice. After a very scenic train ...

    Ok so after a fantastic day in Venice, Brendon and I decided to take a Gondula ride. It was beautiful, the sun was setting and we were in this really spiffy Gondola and just enjoying the relaxing ride around Venice. We go down a quiet alley way and then Brendon pulls out a little box, we look at each other and he asked me if I would marry him!!! The ring inside was beautiful and Brendon ...

    ... would think from our most expensive room to date in Europe (80 Euro a night), but I guess it’s just one of the quirks about this incredible city.

    We spent three days here, all of which were hot. We were really starting to pine for some cold after three months of not really a cloud in the sky. But it was hard to complain when NZ was under snow! We spent our days wandering around the streets and canals. We also went to St ...
