Outstanding hotel in Venice.
On an overall basis, the Al Codega hotel was simply outstanding. From the outset, when we were unable to have our water taxi drop us off as close to hotel as we had wanted because of high waters, the hotel staff was exceptionally helpful in providing us assistance in getting to hotel from the alternative drop off point. That attitude of helpfulness continued throughout our two-day stay at the hotel, no matter who was the manager at any particular time. Directions to key places to visit in Venice, recommendations (and directions) to restaurants ( one of which was so good we ate there three times). And the breakfasts at the hotel were quite good (and certainly ample).
As to the location of the hotel, I found it quite centrally and strategically located, as far as all the sites I had on my itinerary to visit. I was somewhat apprehensive about initially locating the hotel based on a number of prior reviews, but once I was led there by the porter who transported our luggage from the water taxi, it was no problem at all.
In summary, I would recommend the Hotel Al Codega unequivocally to all visitors to Venice.
