"Close to San Marco, lovely building"
We stayed on Carnivale weekend, a very busy time, but the hotel was in a quiet location, while being only minutes away from the center. We had a balcony room, overlooking a small courtyard and San Zaccharia church. Nice breakfast buffet in a pleasant space. WiFi is available free in the lobby, but not in the rooms.

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.

"perfect location"
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.

"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.

"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.

"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.

"Lovely small pensione in a great location"
This is not a five star luxury hotel, but if you appreciate goods service and a clean place to stay this works. The family owners are kind and want their customers to be comfortable and enjoy the city. I was apprehensive about staying in a single room as most in Europe are claustrophobic. My single was nice sized with a full bath which included a tub. The room was spotlessly clean everyday. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Getting to the hotel from San Zaccaria vaperetto stop is very easy. Go up the street to the left of the Danielli Hotel to the end go over the bridge to the right and the hotel is immediately to the left. The location of the hotel is good for St Marks Square and the Bienalle events. There is not an in room safe but, they will keep your belongings in the regular safe behind the desk. Wi-fi is available in this hotel in the sitting room on the first floor. I found it also worked in my room.

Friendly, helpdul staff, and central location. All the hot spots are within walking distance. We booked a double room and got upgraded to the quadruple room for free. Bit of an older hotel but beds are comfortable and good air conditioning (so important in July). Good value for Venicr. Only feedback...they need better pillows.

"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.

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 cuisine.

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.

空港からのアクセスを考えてこのホテルにしました。結果大正解。水上バス乗り場はホテルから5分もかかりません。しかも途中橋も無いので、スーツケースを持っていても問題なし!サンマルコ広場にも近く、観光の拠点としても抜群の立地でした。 ホテルは本館と別館がある様です。わたしは別館(と言っても本館の真向かえ)に宿泊。部屋は超広々、エアコンもしっかりきいていて快適でした。難点を挙げるとすれば、部屋に冷蔵庫がなかったこと。本館の方はあるのかも。でも、フロントに言えば預かって貰えたので特段問題なし。フロントの方もとても素敵な方で、サービス面も満足です。

Habe Venedig mit meinem Enkel (13J) besucht. Das Hotel hat bzgl. Lage, Entfernung von der Wasserbushaltestelle S.Zaccharia und dem Markusplatz unseren Erwartungen voll entsprochen. Angetan waren wir von dem freundlichen Empfang durch den Sohn des Hauses, der auch während unseres Aufenthaltes stets an der Rezeption ansprechbar war. Das Zimmer mit Balkon, ruhig, sauber und zweckmäßig, das Duschbad etwas eng, möglicherweise für ältere Menschen mit Behinderung schwierig zu benutzen. Frühstücksbuffet nicht übertrieben, aber durchaus zufriedenstellend. Für mich ist das Hotel ein idealer Ausgangsort und Ruhepol für einen Venedigbesuch. Ich werde bestimmt wiederkommen und nur im Fontana absteigen!

"Very nice staff, very central, very clean"
07/29/15 stockmaster247
The staff were super nice at this hotel. There was one receptionist who told us we couldn't eat an ice cream in the bar when there was clearly only us there and we just wanted to use the wifi (only available downstairs) but that wasn't a huge issue. The breakfast was a bit poor to be honest but in a city like Venice, you don't want to be filling up on a hotel breakfast. The room was very clean and the air con was great and much needed. I'm personally a fan of new, very modern hotels but Venetian design is quite old fashioned. The location was brilliant, very short walk (providing you don't get lost) to St Mark's Square. I don't think you'll get much better for this price.

"Our Venice retreat"
07/27/15 Craig D Coldwater, Michigan
Hotel Fontana had a perfect location, close to St. Mark's area and the Piazza. The Hotel was an elegant older hotel, but exceptionally quaint and clean. Rooms were fine and it was small enough to be intimate with the owners and others. I definitely would recommend it for those looking to tour Venice.

07/13/15 PDXtripster Portland, Oregon
We not only loved Hotel Fontana's wonderful location (close to San Marco's but not too close), We were absolutely enchanted with the warmth and hospitality of the family that runs it. Staying there made us feel connected to Venice and Italy in a more personal way. A special shout-out to Diego for accommodating us when a flight cancellation forced us to arrive in Venice early.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Fontana. The room was very pleasant, breakfast good, access to beverages was handy, and the staff was quite friendly and helpful. The location was also favorable, since it was close to both the Grand Canal and St. Mark's square, so numerous restaurants andshops were close by, but not too close. Robert's, the restaurant directly across the streetwas very pleasant and we had a delicious meal there.

We had a great stay at the Hotel Fontana. Fantastic location within 2 minutes walking of the vaporetto stop and 5 minutes of Piazza San Marco. Wonderful hospitality. Helped with good restaurant recommendations and tickets to a Vivaldi show. The people are very genuine and friendly. We had a family room and it was a good size, comfortable and quiet, bathroom in good condition. This is a great place to stay in Venice.

"Family run hotel with personality plus!"
06/26/15 Wendy H Brisbane, Australia
We had the pleasure of staying at the Fontana twice, once in May prior to a cruise, and again a month later following other tours. We found this family owned and run hotel to be a joy. The location is ideal as it is close to the water transport, and only two little bridges away from the main tourist icons. Our room was beautifully decorated, very quiet, despite being located in a busy dining precinct and the breakfast was fresh and lovely. The family were more than happy to answer any questions, and provided us with great hints and tips that made our stay in Venice a much more memorable experience. The family atmosphere and the presence of the amazingly agile grandma in her 90's (who with her husband started the business) added to the charm and character of this lovely hotel.

"Family Trip to Italy"
06/11/15 JO123EYD Port Allen, Louisiana
We were there June 6 and 7th. I had the daunting task of planning our family trip to Italy. I had no previous recommendations to work with so I spent a lot of time searching for accommodations online. I cannot tell you how many reviews I read to make my final choices. Thank God for sites such as TripAdvisor for providing review information. Since my choices were made by reading these reviews I too wanted to provide others with possibly helpful information. I must say Hotel Fontana was absolutely wonderful. It is a family owned business and it was everything I expected and more. They were very welcoming, warm, and attentive. One must remember it is a 3 star hotel and not expect 5 star ammenities. It was very clean and well taken care of. Yes the rooms were small, but what should you expect of a hotel in an historical area that has to meet certain guidelines when making any changes in the structure of their buildings. We were a party of eight, and all of us were quite pleased with the accommodations, and were very pleased with the location of the hotel in respect to the tourist attractions and the transportation lines. We all felt very welcome. We got to meet the 93 yr. old matriarch, her sons, and grandsons. One of our couples had a room on the first floor and said sometimes it was a little noisy because of the restaurants and bar next door. The others of us were on the third floor, and the noise was not a problem. We were very pleased with our stay there, and would definitely stay there again and would recommend to others.

"hotel fontana good stay"
06/05/15 alex k Westfield, New Jersey
great little hotel. very close to walk from boat or taxi stop( from airport). probably one of the few hotels with elevator. breakfast is a joke but is included. they have wifi but only downstairs. it does not work in the rooms. rooms are nice and big, good size bathrooms. furniture is older than the hotel but it doesn't really matter, go out and see venice. rooms have AC, it works great. One of the biggest cons for me was that when you leave, you have to leave your hotel key just hanging by the reception desk. anyone can walk in and take any key, the receptionist never checks. rooms do not have a safe, so that plus the keys just hanging there is a big concern for me. I had to lock my bags and carry my passport with me. during my 4 day stay NOTHING was stolen from me. they do have a bar area but i never saw it open.

"Great for pre-cruise stay"
06/01/15 CruiseAddict_14 Montreal, Canada
I spent 2 nights prior to our cruise. We pick the hotel for the location, 5 min to St-Mark square. The room was clean and ok for a 2 night stay. Breakfast was also included, which is great to maximize your time. It can be noisy at night because there is a small bar on the corner of the street, but it was not so loud. We stop at this bar for a glass of wine or espresso and we had a lot of fun.
