3 nights in Hotel al Vagon

Home >  Venice Italy Hotels >  Hotel al Vagon >

I needed a good hotel when I joined the Venice Marathon. And I booked Hotel al Vagon.

While the start of the marathon is 2.5 miles outside Venice, for me was a hotel in the center of Venice very important. The hotel is fairly cheap, is very comfortable, but they do not have breakfast. Curious? Book Hotel Vagon here >

Tip 1: Discover Venice by gondola and experience the magic of the city from the water. Through my partner Tiqets.nl we have tickets from EUR 32 , - Book here >

Most tourists pay a hundred euro for a short gondola ride. And this tip is for you to take a gondola ride just for a few bucks is our secret. Shhh...

Venice Italy Hotel al Vagon

My stay at this hotel

When entering the hotel you will see a simple reception and on the right the stairs. I had room 29 overlooking the canal 'Santi Apostoli. This is one of the largest rooms.

There is another spacious room but the view is not as good as room 29 because you are overlooking a small square in front of the hotel.

My room had a classic Venetian style with a king-sized bed, private bathroom with shower, satellite TV and plenty of space for luggage. Handy is also the hotel's good Wi-Fi connection. I had no problem logging in.

The staff at the front desk were very friendly. Every time when I went out I left the key with somebody behind the front desk and 24 hours a day someone is present. In the night, the door is locked, but by ringing the bell they recognize you and let you inside.

This square in front of the hotel has on daytime and evening often a fruit cocktail stall! DELICIOUS…

There is no breakfast at this hotel. But I did not mind, because in Venice you can easily buy your own breakfast in the morning or in the evening before bedtime. I could have a picture with the owner (Maurizio La Faci).

Review Hotel al Vagon

I had a 3 night stay and my fare was in total € 432 -. This was during the Venice Marathon from Friday until Monday October 23 – October 26 in 2015. Curious about your total hotel spending? Book Al Vagon here > 

Review hotels Venice Italy

All summarized, it has been a very good hotel. The hotel room was clean, I had a canal view and the location was ideal. I could explore everything around the Rialto and eat in the fantastic restaurants / bars in the area.

During the day you will be wandering in Venice and exploring the city. Such a hotel is very comfortable after a day of intensive Venice and a marathon of course ;). In my opinion the price / quality ratio therefore is positive.

Directions to the Hotel

From Marco Polo Airport, I took the Allilaguna boat to the Rialto and from there it is a 7-minute walk to the hotel. Sounds simple, and I am experienced in Venice. But still, you can get lost in the narrow alleyways, crooked bridges and being impressed by the tourists.

Route Hotel venice Italy

Eventually I could find my way on Google Maps. As follows:

  • Get off at Rialto ->
  • From the bridge walk towards ‘Campo S. Bortolomio' ->
  • Immediate left on the square ->
  • Walk straight past the department store "Coin" ->
  • On the left you have the historic restaurant Fiaschetteria Toscana ->
  • Continue the route straight and get over the bridge ->
  • Arriving on the small square and on the left you see the sign with all Hotel Vagon.
