Hotel "Al Sole" is my favourite accomodation when visiting Treviso and its surroundings, including Venice which is only 20km far from the hotel. It is small, with only 20 rooms, but offers great service and very friendly atmosphere.
Unique Quality: The single room is relatively small but have quite enough place for single person. All rooms are air-conditioned, with tv-set, mini-bar and separate bathroom. The front sided rooms offers great view to the countryside. Smoking is not allowed inside the hotel and its rooms, rule which I respect although I smoke alot. However, there is great garden, right in front of the hotel, where smoking is allowed.
I am in particularly attached for an hotel if it offers good service, clean rooms and friendly atmosphere. All of it you'll find in this hotel which I higly recommend.
Btw, the price for the single room is 60,00 Euros, which is less then similar hotels in the area.
We booked via the internet and paid about £80/night for a double room.
The facade of the hotel is beautiful and does overlook a small canal...but we hadn't realised that the canal was being dregded and renovated!! Hardly a scenic view but we didn't come to spend all our time in Venice looking out of our hotel room did we. Some fortunate people (read Steventilly) got moved to another hotel whilst the noisy work was being done (before our arrival).
Unique Quality: in 2004 we noticed the canal work was finished here (several other canals were now being done up instead) and once more gondolas were floating past the hotel around the pretty canals in this area. So you could arrive at this hotel by private taxi now if you wished.
Al Sole Palace
Ever since I saw a picture of this hotel I wanted to stay here. A historic hotel in the heart of old Venice, overlooking a little canal with a bridge, away from the hustle and bustle of the Grand Canal with its associated noise and vaporeti fumes.
Unique Quality: Hotel Al Sole was once called Palazzo Marcello and belonged to a Patrician family which, over the centuries, provided Venice with its most illustrious players on the political artistic and economic stage. Built in the sixteenth century, this splendid Palazzo faces the Tolentini canal and was home to Benedetto Marcello (1686-1739) the famous composer renowned as the prince of Venetian music.
