Nestled into a modest street near the Peggy Guggenheim the Agli Alboretti is a small, intimate hotel where you will get to know the owner and her two small dogs after a day or two, particularly if you have dinner in the restaurant one evening. The food is very good ... although the competition in Venice is steep. The owner watches over the room and you feel well looked after.
There is a warm neighborhood Cafe just around the corner which became my favorite spot to read the papers and write each morning
