My partner and I stayed at Alcyone Hotel 30 December.
The location was perfect, within minutes you are at San Marcs Piazza or Rialto Bridge.
The staff were very helpful and the room (despite being rather small) was lovely, clean and relatively comfortable beds.
I chose the hotel for it's location which is fantastic but would never return again.
While entering the bathroom it became clear that this hotel doesn't care to much about hygiene: lots of mold in the shower, fungus on the faucet, urine on the outside...More
We stayed for one night. It was clean and Allesandro was very accomodating, friendly and helpful. The room was warm, but we had a fan. Its a bit strange sharing the owners bathroom with them, you feel a bit intrusive. It is very central to...More
the rooms are so small that there is barely any place to stand. there isnt enough space for 2 suitcases. we chose the hotel for its location which is superb but there are tonnes of better hotels in the same location. very disappointing.
I'm glad that we weren't swayed by the negative reviews because we were pleasantly surprised by our stay at the Hotel Alcyone when we visited in May 2009. The location is fantastic - very close to St. Mark's Square and many wonderful dining options. On...More
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

VCE - Marco Polo by coach to the terminus at Piazzale Roma is about half-an-hour. Then by water bus (No 1) to "Rialto B" stop is about 10 minutes. From Rialto B, walk on the Riva del Carbon (50 metres) to the Calle Bembo opposite "Rialto A" water bus stop*. Calle Bembo becomes the Calle dei Fabri, and to the Alcyone is about 150 metres. Allow an hour from leaving the airport.
* Rialto B is the stop coming FROM Piazzale Roma. Rialto A is to go TO Piazzale Roma.
