Nicolette kindly upgraded us to an apartment at no additional cost. The unit was huge and certainly the largest we stayed in during our entire time in Europe. The breakfast is excellent. The stairs are no big deal and if stairs concern you then you should probably not be vacationing in Venice.

The hotel is in a 16th century building, very cool. The room was OK, clean, fairly large, updated bathroom, all good. The bonus is that the hotel balcony, open to all guests, is on the Grand Canal, very near the Rialto Bridge. The view is amazing! We enjoyed wine on the balcony, day and evening, watching the boat traffic, and gondolas floating by just below. The location also made for easy walking everywhere.
The stay was acceptable for the price. The WiFi wasn't working during our stay. However, we're given an alternative WiFi which the signal is only receivable up to 1st floor only.
Frederica, at the reception is friendly and even showed us where the resort is located. Oh yes, you need to check in at hotel Al tolentini, get the keys and then only head to Venice Resorts, which is about 5 to 10 mins walk.
Complimentary breakfast was good. Just enough to get you through the morning hours. The cafeteria for the breakfast is just diagonally opposite the resort. The owner who attended to us every morning is really hospitable.

"Small, clean with easy access in a less busy area"
We stayed 5 nights. We have previously stayed at the same hotel in 2013 and 2009. Before that we have stayed in Venice 3 times at other places.
The hotel is well located, being close to the airport bus to avoid carrying heavy cases on boats or over many bridges on the first and last days, but with non of the noise of closer hotels. There are both canals and a number of well priced restaurants away from the main hustle and bustle just outside the door.
It is an easy well lit (wide path, not backstreet), 5 minute walk from Roma or Ferrovia back late at night or a simple to learn walk to Sa Toma for a much shorter journey. The routes out on a morning avoid the main tourist track from train to St Marks and so are much more enjoyable.
The hotel is small, almost family run with the same happy faces each day.
The layout is fairly simple, but most importantly, clean and quiet with reliable hot water for the shower, good WiFi, and simple bread, hot croissants and fresh coffee for breakfast. A small safe is provided in room for valuables and a secure locked luggage area to leave cases on the last day.
All being well, we are thinking of going back to Venice in 2018 and will most probably stay at the Fallier again as it has proved highly reliable.
Beautiful hotel and extremely friendly staff, they helped us with everything we asked of them. Our departure day was an hour before breakfast started they made sure we had fresh food and coffee before we began our travel. Location was great, short walk to the grand canal and just far enough away from St Marks.

Home of the Rialto Market, San Polo is the busiest 'sestiere' (district) after San Marco. For local colour, great little shops, bars and cafes, the Rialto market area is a must. Dining on the Grand Canal next to the iconic Rialto Bridge is a romantic Venetian cliché. Near the bridge, the Ca' Pesaro is home to the Museum of Modern Art while 16th-century masterpieces are on show at the Frari church and Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
