Hotel al Sole
An appealing and atmospheric mid-range option with a relaxing ambience that successfully maintains the historic atmosphere of the building.
The reasonably quiet location is something of a backwater, a little distant from the main tourist sights but close to some interesting sights of this quarter.
Situated only a short distance from many shops and restaurants and is also reasonably convenient for public transport connections.
A distinguished 4-storey former convent built in the 15th century in typical Venetian style, with an exposed brick facade and ornately carved Moorish windows.
Property type: Hotel
Built Year: 1400s
The interior is strong in character and historic feel, with many exposed wooden beams and brick walls, mosaic and marble floors and ceilings of varying heights.
A light attractive entrance hall with a small reception area faces 2 small lounge areas, one beyond the other.
The cosy bar is dark but inviting and features a low-beamed ceiling and a central marble column. Adjacent to this is a rather cramped breakfast room with red and green striped walls.
An inviting leafy paved courtyard with trailing plants over an ancient brick wall is bedecked with metal furniture and used for al fresco breakfasts in summer.
Area Type: In a picturesque area of Santa Croce beside a bend in a narrow canal, adjacent to the Marcello bridge with a couple of bars and restaurants within 100 yds. A gondola station is just outside. Scuola Grande di San Rocco 300 yds, Frari church 400 yds, Piazzale Roma bus station 250 yds, vaporetto 300 yds, railway station 600 yds.
