Hotel Alcyone - Venice
The Hotel Alcyone, located in the historic San Marco district, is a central 3-star Venice hotel. A 4-minute walk from the Alcyone will bring you to the iconic 16th-century Rialto footbridge which crosses the Grand Canal and connects the 2 districts of San Marco and San Polo. You can also reach the Church of San Salvador in 2 minutes on foot from the hotel. This church, whose history dates back to the 7th century, houses 2 priceless works of art by the Venetian artist, Titian. The Annunciation can be found on the south wall of the church, and The Transfiguration forms the altarpiece of the high altar. Continue your exploration of historic Venice by foot, as a 4-minute walk from your family-friendly Venice hotel will take you to the world-famous St Mark’s Square and the must-see sights of the Basilica of San Marco, the Doge’s Palace, and the bell tower. Or sit back with a cappuccino in one of the square’s many cafés and restaurants and enjoy a spot of people-watching in the midst of beautiful Venetian architecture.
The family-run Hotel Alcyone is itself part of Venetian history, as the building dates back to the 18th century. The grandeur of earlier times has not vanished from the interior, as Venetian-style furniture and décor can be found throughout the hotel. In the dining room, which overlooks one of Venice’s many canals, you can enjoy an extensive free buffet breakfast while watching gondolas pass by. Relax in the hotel’s elegantly designed bar and lounge, or on the sun terrace when the days are long and warm. The hotel’s friendly staff are on hand to help you plan your sightseeing and can book tickets for excursions to avoid wasting valuable time standing in line. WiFi is also available. Don’t forget to take advantage of the unique opportunity to arrive at the Alcyone by water on the city’s public transport system, the vaporetto, as the Rialto stop is less than a 5-minute walk from the hotel.
Guests of the Hotel Alcyone rate its central location close to Venice’s top historic and cultural sights. They also praise its value for money, and the variety and quality of the buffet breakfast.
