Review Summary


  • Very spacious rooms are clean and bright (some have canal views)
  • Flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars and updated bathrooms in rooms
  • Small, inviting lobby bar
  • Charming garden and courtyard
  • Convenient location within walking distance of Venice's popular sights and bus station
  • Breakfast included in rate


Bottom Line

Walking into the Hotel Al Sole feels like something out of a Venice daydream. The 15th century building is infused with everything visitors to the city would expect, from the brick walls, to the charming courtyard, to the canal views. That being said, the rooms are nothing to fawn over (especially at their price): Generic bedspreads, cheap rattan furniture, and tiny flat-screen TVs are some of the low points. The stocked minibars and canal views are helpful in looking past these faults, though, as is the hotel's great location near Venice's popular sights.

In the bustling San Polo area

Map of Hotel Al Sole

The Hotel Al Sole is located in San Polo, a bustling neighborhood (the second busiest in the city) full of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, especially in the Rialto marketplace. Museums and Venice's iconic sights are a short water bus or walk away. First-time visitors may prefer to stay a bit closer to St. Mark's Square, however.

  • 22-minute water taxi ride from Venice Marco Polo Airport
  • 7-minute walk to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection
  • 10-minute water taxi ride or 27-minute walk to the Bridge of Sighs
  • 20-minute walk to Rialto Bridge, the oldest bridge in Venice
  • 20-minute walk to Punta della Dogana, home to 15th-century architecture
  • 25-minute walk to Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square)
