Unicorns are easier to find in Venice than a quiet, affordable, well-lit, family-run hotel five minutes' walk to Piazza San Marco – yet here you have it. Veer off boutique-lined Calle Goldoni, duck under the sotoportego (archway), and this flower-trimmed yellow inn greets you in the courtyard. Request sunny courtyard-facing rooms or the easy-access ground-floor Casanova room (there's no lift).
Rooms at the family-run Al Codega have an elegant Venetian style, many with views over the city. All have satellite TV and a minibar.
Services at the hotel include a 24-hour front desk and a bar. A buffet breakfast is served daily.
