The Hotel Al Gazzettino is situated on one of the most confusing blocks of the San Marco area. It’s a simple three-star spot with a tiny, cluttered and cozy lobby and 10 traditionally Venetian guest rooms.
Pros: Great location (once you find it). Good value.
Cons: No elevator. Thin walls.
Rooms at the Hotel Al Gazzettino have all the Venetian-style trappings, including busy red damask wallpaper, gilded mirrors, Murano-style light fixtures and some colorful bedding.
All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a satellite TV, safe, minibar and telephone. Six rooms offer canal views and four look to side streets.
The private bathrooms are your usual fare, and equipped with a bathtub or shower. A hair dryer and toiletries are provided.
The Hotel Al Gazzettino is a basic sort, but it’s a solid pick for the unfussy traveler looking to be in the center of the action.
A buffet breakfast with meats, cheeses and fruits is included in the room rate. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi. Note that the hotel does not have an elevator.

About the Al Gazzettino neighborhood
Located to the east of the Grand Canal, the ultra-busy San Marco neighborhood is the city's commercial, tourist and religious core. The magnificent Piazza San Marco and Saint Mark's Basilica attract travelers (and hungry pigeons) like a magnet. Here, the Rialto Bridge is a beautiful, bustling mess, where boats unload, tourists amass and pricey boutiques abound. Nearby you'll find the Accademia Bridge, Campo San Stefano, the San Stefano church and lots of street performers, shops and restaurants.
