"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
"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

"Unbelievable location and wonderful stay"
07/24/14 danielakorem Hertzlia
We've booked Fontana for a 2 nights' stay pre-cruise, mainly because its location on the Alilaguna Blue Line and its affordable price. Turns out it was a brilliant choice. From the airport directly to the S. Zaccaria stop, and then, we simply couldn't believe it, 3 min walk to the hotel, no steps and no bridges to cross. This hotel enjoys the benefits of being right in the middle of action, while located in a quite square. 5 min walk to S. Marco, 20 min to Rialto Bridge. We walked everywhere. The room (for Venice, that's it) and bathroom were very spacious and spotless clean, with a variety of amenities. The breakfast was included and was various and tasty. The staff - very friendly and helpful. After our short stay, we walked again to the S. Zaccaria stop and took the Alilaguna Blue Line to the ship terminal. Less than half an hour later, we found ourselves right near our ship, no hassle and no fuss, for 8 Euro pp. Excellent location and stay, what more can u desire? Much recommended.
"Great Location & Helpful Staff"
07/20/14 4Pitchers Garland, Texas
Agonized over where to stay while in Venice as part of our 2-week 30th Wedding Anniversary trip to Italy. Considered everything from b&b, vrbo, to 5-star hotels and finally settled on this...What a gem! Quaint & charming. A/C (self regulated), elevator, and complimentary continental breakfast. Room was plenty of space for us as a travelling couple (but who's going to Venice to stay in their room for a long period of time?!) Clean and well kept. Easily requested, and were provided, extra towels and hair dryer. Free wifi to guests; accessible in lobby and restaurant area. We got there before check-in time and they happily watched our bags while we scampered around town and began our trip. Family owned and operated, Diego spoke wonderful English and was a HUGE help in providing directions. Claudio ran the desk while Diego was away and though not part of the family, was friendly and helpful as well (his English wasn't as good as Diego's). Would DEFINITELY stay there again! * Short walk (just a couple of blocks - straight shot - easy to find) from San Zaccharia Vaparetto stop
"Great people. Great location."

Great for what we needed. Nice clean hotel with helpful staff that will provide you with whatever you need. Located far enough from St mark's that there were no crowds but close enough that everything is right around the corner.

This hotel had a great location not far from St. Mark's Square. Easy walk there and to the vaporetto. Staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was decent. I stayed on the 4th floor and one of the drawbacks was the size of the bathroom. It was very small and the shower had a low ceiling. I am tall, so I was afraid I would have to stoop, but luckily there was a skylight that I could stand under that gave me room. There was also no hair dryer, which is a basic item I expect in a hotel. The last night in the hotel I had the window open and was bitten badly by mosquitos. Keep the windows closed and use the the air conditioner.

This was a very friendly family owned hotel with an elevator! The staff had great recommendations for restaurants and places to see. It is an easy stroll from the water taxi making hauling luggage a breeze. Close to St. Mark's and other attractions. We enjoyed our stay!
"Great Location and Very Friendly Hotel"

Excellent locations easy to get to from the ferry and great for getting around Venice. Friendly team of staff and good value drinks in the bar. Three good restaurants across the alleyway from the hotel. Recommend this hotel for your stay in Venice and I will be going back on our next visit.
"Charming hotel, friendly, central location"
06/01/14 Andrea C London, United Kingdom
Small friendly, family run hotel, centrally located in a quiet piazza. Short walk from San Zaccaria vaporetto stop, which is important when arriving and leaving with luggage! Can be done without a canal bridge too! Staff helpful. Rooms clean, if a little dated.
"Great central location, friendly service and great value"

We stayed for two nights, and we found the hotel was in a fantastic location minutes from everything in Venice. Although dated the room was plenty big enough and extremely clean! The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful with recommending places to eat and drink. Overall very good value for money and would certainly recommend a stay at this hotel.
"Family run - great location"

A small family run hotel, just a few minutes walk to St Mark's Square and close to the Vaparetto stop for easy travelling around. A great location from which to explore this fabulous city. Staff very friendly and helpful.
