Al Sole Hotel Venice is a three star hotel in Santa Croce sestiere, overlooking an idyllic canal, just 450 meters from Piazzale Roma.
The hotel’s building is a 15th century residence of a noble Venetian family, Palazzo Marcello, within a very pleasant area of Venice, but close to many of the most famous tourist attractions in Venice, such as Chiesa dei Frari church, campo Santa Margherita, and Gallerie dell’Accademia.
