Al Sole

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 24, 2002

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.

Historic Al Sole

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

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.

Directions: Santa Croce 136 - 30135 Venice (Italy)

From the train station, cross the Grand Canal and turn right, walking down the street until the next bridge; turn left and walk on for approx. five minutes,
