Three star Al Gazzettino Hotel Venice has a central location, just 5 minutes walk from Saint Mark’s Square and the Rialto Bridge, housed within a classic 17th century Venetian building.
The hotel building, which is a historical palazzo, once housed wealthy merchants that came here to do business with their counterparts at the Venetian Republic.
The name of the hotel comes from the famous regional newspaper ‘Gazzettino’, which, until several years ago, had their headquarters across the street.
Thanks to its history in the city, Hotel Al Gazzettino is one of the more famous hotel landmarks in Venice, known worldwide for its privileged position and quality of guest services.
All in all, the hotel has a selection of 11 rooms to choose from, each with a bathroom and air conditioning, overlooking an idyllic Venetian canal, ideal setting for a romantic weekend in Venice.
Guest rooms offer, for example, Baroque furniture and Murano-glass lamps, as well as either wood or tiled floors.
Amenities also range from WiFi broadband internet access to air conditioning, and to an LCD TV with satellite channels.
Breakfast at the hotel includes Italian coffee, croissants and options such as cold cuts and cheese.
The hotel’s restaurant, ‘Restaurant Al Gazzettino’, on the other hand, specializes in meat and fish dishes.
The front desk staff is available 24h, and the personnel there can assist you in arranging for transportation, tickets to events, and they can keep you up-to-date on current events in the city.
