Great Location. Great staff that is very helpful. Nice hotel overall. The beds are not that comfortable. The bathrooms have a moldy smell. I heard that is normal in Venice at some points of the year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to St marks sq"
Easy to find. Great location. Bed not so comfy. Two twins pushed together sinks in the middle. Couldn't sleep. Nice staff. Breakfast is nothing to brag about meat thinner than paper wrapped cheesesGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel Fontana is a five minute walk from St Marks, Doges palace and the the water taxi pickup/dropoff. There are three restaurants within 20 yards of the hotel. There is a coffee shop right next to the hotel that was always packed with people. Shops and canals all around the area. Gabriel and Diego were both great helping to answer all of our questions. […] It's a perfect spot to stay in Venice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location with charming local Restaurants. ,"
This is a charming old world style Hotel with very clean rooms and beautiful furniture. The beds are very comfortable and after a long day of sight seeing you can come back and enjoy a nightcap at the Bar. It has been run by the same Family since 1967 who are very friendly and helpful for all your needs. They have a breakfast room and have a nice selection […] in the morning. Rooms are air conditioned and there is a lift. We enjoyed our stay and plan to come back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Kind helpful staff/great location"
On our first day in Venice, my companion fell and broke her leg at a nearby museum. The hotel staff was so kind and helpful--especially Mr. Davide. So, this charming boutique hotel is more than just conveniently located near San Marcos; it is staffed by wonderful people.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Friendly hotel in great location"
Family owned hotel with the owner working the desk during the days. Very friendly and helpful. He made some excellent restaurant recommendations. The location is excellent. 2 minute walk to St. Marc's square and only a 2 block walk from the water bus.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location, helpful staff spoke good English, nice breakfast, better than average sized shower. Not far from vaporetto stop. Free wi-fi in bar area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"At home in Venice"
I spent a week at the Casa Fontana and was sad to leave. The best thing about the place is the location - just a couple hundred yards from Piazza San Marco on one side and the San Zaccaria vaporetto stops on the other, yet in the more serene Castello neighborhood, which is mostly free from the tourist mobs and has a real Venetian feel. There's a great […] little bar (Becaro Risorto) right next door and an excellent coffee shop across the street, both of which I made sure to visit every day. The hotel is family-owned and operated and the staff could not be more friendly. My room was simple, quiet, and comfortable, with a nice view of the white facade of San Zaccaria in the morning sun. Breakfast was simple but more than adequate. Wi-fi is available only in the bar area. In many ways, I felt more like I was staying with a favorite aunt than staying at a hotel. I hope to get back to Venice soon, and if I do, I will be back at Casa Fontana. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Recommended to us - we recommend it on to anyone else!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly hotel, close to San Marco"
We stayed at Casa Fontana for three nights. It's a small, unpretentious place that perfectly fitted our needs. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had no complaints at all. The location is superb - it's about three minutes walk from San Marco, but still feels a comfortable distance from the tourist hordes. It's also very convenient for the Zattare […] traghetto stop. Our room overlooked a small square, with some pizzerias and bars, but we didn't get any noise during the night. I would definitely recommend the hotel, and we would be happy to stay there next time we're in Venice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel would stay here again"
Great location so close to San Marco square. Nothing was too much trouble for the hotel staff. I had a problem with the Air Con which was resolved immediately. Was also advised on where to get a great meal for a reasonable price. Very useful as some of the touristy restaurants charge an arm and leg but do not always provide great service and cuisin […] e.

"Old hotel but clean and great location"
The hotel is old but it is clean and the location is great. Staff are friendly. My mum and dad loved the hotel as they felt it had character, I thought it was old, but it was clean, staff were lovely and location awesome. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly, family-run hotel. Very quiet central location, despite being opposite three restaurants and small bar, less than five minute walk to St Mark's Square. Easy to get to from vaporetta stops. Our room had a small balcony but it was too cold in March to sit out there. Small room, but comfortable for two people. Comfortable bed (twins pushed together), […] clean room. Sky TV had to be paid for if required. WiFi only available downstairs in small bar area. All in all a very enjoyable stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"NICE HOTEL IN CENTER OF VENICE"
PERFECT PLACE TO EXPLORE VENICE ON A WEEKEND BREAKGenuine Expedia guest review
Had a great experience at this hotel, the staff were wonderful! We got in late, there was some where there to greet us and even personally showed us to the nearest place for dinner. Similarly when we had to leave early the staff made sure there was a small breakfast ready. Definitely recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Authentisches Hotel in italienischem Stil. Ideale und ruhige Lage (bei Zimmer nach hinten raus). Innenausstattung und Bad schon etwas älter, aber gemütlich. Bett/Matratze ok. Frühstück nicht üppig, aber in Ordnung. Extrem freundliches und hilfsbereites Personal! Vielen Dank dafür!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Retrouvailles de La Sérénissime"
Accueil familial très agréable. Situation idéale pour accéder aux vaporetti. Une petite réserve sur le café du petit déjeuner, il a le goût de café soluble, dommage car tout le reste est excellent côté rapport qualité-prix. Vivement recommandé pour vivre Venise.......Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Goed hotel op prima locatie"
Betaalbaar goed hotel op een prima locatie vlak achter Marco Poloplein. Zeer behulpzaam vriendelijk personeel. Schone kamer. Met een uitstekend restaurant voor de deur.. Enige minpuntje: de nachtportier stond de hele nacht vóór het hotel en maakte soms een nogal luidruchtig praatje met voorbijgangers.Genuine Expedia guest review

What a lovely, friendly, family run hotel. Ok so it's not the most luxurious but the location is excellent and the staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. It's easy to locate when you come off the vaporetto from the airport (San Zaccaria), no problems with lugging cases through the streets or over bridges. It's literally a couple of minutes to Saint Mark's Square but has the benefit of feeling like it's in a quieter area away from the hustle and bustle. There are a number of restaurants literally just over the road although they cater mostly for the tourists and there are much nicer places. All in all, an excellent place to stay in Venice.
"Just as good as the last time....................."

Second visit to the Fontana for us. Persuaded our friends to come this time. 4 nights in this lovely, family run, hotel, close to St Marks Square. When we visit Venice again this is the place we will stay. Thanks again for helping us have a great visit to your fabulous city.....
"Comfortable central hotel"
03/31/15 Steve and Jenny... H Bedfordshire, UK
This was our 9th visit to Venice and this is one of the most relaxing hotels we have stayed in. Friendly, helpful staff, family run hotel. Also has a lift which not all Venetian hotels do. The location is very central - just 2 bridges to Piazza San Marco and 2 bridges to Campo Santa Maria Formosa, which is a good route to take to Rialto from the hotel. Just round the corner from San Zaccaria, both the church and vaparetto stop - no bridges at all to get there. Plenty of restaurants close by.
"Fantastic Stay !"
03/29/15 Rebecca L Wakefield, England, United Kingdom
Had an amazing stay here at the Hotel Fontana for two nights from the 24th March 2015. The hotel was in the most ideal location, a great base for venturing around Venice by foot. It was no further than a 3-5 Minute walk to St Marks Square and probably a 15 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge. Shops, restaurants and bars were also close by. The hotel was very authentic Italian style which I really loved. We were given 'The best room in hotel' (Room 14) on the very top floor with a breathtaking view of San Zaccaria church (See photos). The rooms were of a great size (with an ample bathroom) and the beds were very comfy ! The staff at the hotel were so friendly and tried to help in any way possible. Both nights after we had eaten out and had an evening walk we came and had a few drinks in the hotel bar (Which was very cheap - 9 Euros for a glass of wine and a lager). I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Venice - It was great value for money !

"Great family run hotel in heart of Venice"
03/19/15 redkatemunich Shepperton, United Kingdom
Nice and quiet family run hotel, very close to San Marco square (approx 5 mins walk). Friendly staff (all speak excellent English). Rooms a bit old fashioned - but clean and somehow the style adds to the "real" Italian experience; nice and warm (in March); fresh towels every day. Basic continental style breakfast, cute little bar area behind reception (very reasonable prices). Cannot really fault it for a 3* hotel in the centre of Venice - would definitely go back and feel happy to recommend to family & friends.
03/14/15 John N Liverpool, United Kingdom
A quiet Hotel situated near San Zacharia square. I couldnt have wished for a better stay. Room was immaculately clean, towels on tap, none of this rubbish of saving towels to be green. The staff were wonderfully warm and friendly and breakfast more than adequate, I would have to give this hotel 10 out of 10. The owners are very personable and friendly and go out of their way to help you. Would I visit again? 100% definetly.
"The Perfect Stay"
02/14/15 gesuati London, United Kingdom
I have stayed at Hotel Fontana for holidays over the past 20 years, and many times twice yearly. That in itself would be the highest recommendation. I previously stayed in Venice hotels where I was treated as merely a client. I then discovered the Fontana where the staff are genuinely concerned that your stay at the hotel and in Venice is the best it can be. Being a small hotel the staff have time for you and will ensure that your time in Venice is special. It is also incredibly central and the vaporetto stops and Piazza di San Marco are just minutes away. You may also be very fortunate in having a room over looking the magnificent San Zaccaria church - a Renaissance masterpiece. I am delighted to write this review for an absolutely superb hotel. Sorry it has taken so long. Why do I keep coming back? Come to the Fontana and see for yourself.

Couldn't fault a thing. Stayed 4 nights this feb. Staff were helpful, polite and welcoming. Rooms were clean and modern and very comfortable and warm in winter. Shower was hot and powerful with complimentary toiletries. i got a chance to look at the palace opposite which they use as overflow rooms and it's absolutely beautiful, the restoration is lovely and you would be lucky to stay here. Breakfast is continental, which I think is fine and rooms are cleaned daily by one of the lovely staff. Would highly recommend!!!
"This hotel is highly recommended - a great experience!!"
01/21/15 Linda K Sydney, Australia
Hi, I just wanted to send a big thank you to the Hotel Fontana, Venice. My two adult children and I arrived a few days after the New Year. This hotel is very accessible from the train station. You just get the regular ferry service and it is a two minute walk once you alight from the vessel. The staff are all lovely, and really welcome you. Breakfast is generous and I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants a clean, central and well-run hotel in Venice. Many thanks from Linda Kelly and children
