The Alcyone is a 2* Superior rating, and just about makes the grade. It is functional, clean and welcoming, but very much no-frills. The rooms are bijou and basic, and - in our case - VERY high up (53 stairs high, actually)... but they were...More
This was the third hotel of four we stayed in on a similar budget whilst travelling in Europe and was by far the worst. However, considering the price of hotels in Venice this was probably an average experience for this price range. The photos on...More
I was travelling with my teenage daughter round Italy and took particular pains to ensure two beds at each pre-booked hotel. Arrived at this hotel to be told that they could not offer me a room with two beds and were totally disinterested and unapolegetic....More
Stayed here in March. It is very central - on one end is the Rialto Bridge and on the other side is San Marco Square. However the rooms are tiny and quite felt like Alice In Wonderland! However considering everything in Venice is expensive, this...More
We stayed at the Alcyone hotel in late May. Our room was small but clean. Breakfast was simple consisting of a roll/croissant, cereal, yoghurt, fruit juice and coffee. The breakfast room only has 7 tables and if the hotel is full you may find you...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.
