A 10-room boutique on a small canal, Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo is an intimate, quiet pick in the Santa Croce neighborhood of Venice. Located near a Vaporetto stop and a 10-minute walk from the Rialto Bridge, this hotel has pretty historic details such as wood beam ceilings. Rooms have Murano glass chandeliers, small flat-screen TVs, and gilded mirrors. Both Wi-Fi and breakfast are free, but the traditional decor might not suit all tastes. All in all, it's a terrific value.
