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

"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
"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
Hôtel très bien placé, à 3 mn de la place St marc. Accueil sympathique et familial. Chambre spacieuse et très propre. Seul le petit déjeuner mériterait d'être amélioré.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

"Nice family owned personal touch. Great location"
08/26/14 tinfence Western Australia
The location is perfect. Away from the really busy areas but in an area close to all main attractions and with ample services n shops right next door. This is a family owned hotel and it shows. Got a nice personal touch to it all and older generations are always about greeting guests. The bedrooms and bathrooms are basic but adequate. Not a lot of room to move about with cases n luggage. Breakfast is also basic but very adequate. Nice little wine bar next door n heaps of restaurants to choose from. Definitely a good choice overall
"Great location and good value"
08/19/14 dumbo56 Southend-on-Sea, United Kingdom
Found the hotel via Trivago and was very pleased with the choice. Having established which boat-taxi stop to get off, I was amazed at just how easy it was to find the hotel. Literally about 100 yards from the Grand Canal and just a few minutes walk to St Marks Square. The hotel is family run and they are very helpful. The room was more than adequate for our 2 night stay. Ok the bathroom was small but the room itself was fine. They offer free Wi-Fi in the lobby but I was lucky enough to still pick up a decent signal from my room on the first floor. There are numerous 'reasonably priced' eateries very close to the hotel.
"Would definitely stay again"
08/14/14 19luv2travel83 Manama, Bahrain
Location: Excellent location close to St Marks square. Travelling with luggage can be very problematic in a place like Venice which is known for its canals and bridges. However since this hotel is located very close to the water bus stop St Zaccaria, this was not an issue for us. Staff: Very friendly staff. Helped us with all information about the tourist spots, gondola rides, restaurants etc. Rooms: Spacious, clean and comfortable overlooking a cute little Venice street. Breakfast provided by the hotel was also very good. Prices are reasonable considering the location. Elevator is another plus point. Would definitely stay here again.
"Amazing family and amazing hotel in a great location"

If you stay in Venice, Hotel Fontana is your place to rest! It has a great location coupled with great hospitality and support of the family who run it. We have stayed there twice, and with no doubt, will stay there again when we go back to beautiful Venice. The elevator is a also a plus for those who have difficulties with stairs. Their prices are quite reasonable and affordable. Staff are extremely helpful. Very clean and spacious rooms. Highly recommended!

"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.
