Restored 18th century palace honors Venice greats on the Grand Canal

Decent Hotel - Convienant Location - Friendly Staff

Pros: This hotel is quiet, the staff was very nice and made us feel at home throughout our stay. The breakfast was good, typical European breakfast. I really enjoyed the chocolate croissants. The location was perfect, about a five minute easy walk from the train station. There are two bridges you will have to cross with steps so if you didn't travel lightly it might be a bit of a challenge with the bridges. There is a bar and even light snacks of ham & cheese sandwiches they left out for guests, nice touch! Mosquitoes were an issue for me, the desk had complimentary repellant wipes. Cons: The room was average, they give you a key card that has probably been used 50 times or more... which was strange. The bed was surprisingly comfortable, the finishes are traditional okd school Italian. I prefer places with white linen duvets over quilted comforters with dated print. The lightuhg & furniture was dated. The bathroom was updated, which was a pleasant surprise, however the shower was very small in depth. It was difficult to take a shower without touching the glass. I'm a pretty slim person, it would be difficult for someone of larger size & stature to comfortably shower.

Just what you would expect

The hotel is situated as convient as you could get and still be away from the crowds that are attracted to the old city. It is better than you might expect from the brand name, nicely appointed, exceptionally clean, helpful and efficient staff. Substantial buffet breakfast.

Venice in November

Close to piazza Roma , great ferry connections ... near the Ferrovia, friendly staff.. most comfortable bedding and good value .. will certainly return. It is important in Venice to not have to carry your suitcase over too many bridges.. I think from the central pizza there are only two bridges to cross (if you go the right way).

Hotel Canal Grande Review

The hotel was beautiful. We had a room that looked out onto the canal and it was stunning. The room was typical Venetian style and I felt like a princess. The bathroom had a tub and rain shower combo which was great. The breakfast was okay and filling and we were able to sit at a table on their dock to the canal and watch the boat pass (amazing!). The hotel was located in Santa Croce and we loved it there. It was right across the Scalzi Bridge from the Santa Lucia train station (if you looked left while crossing the bridge you could see the hotel). The bridge was a downside though - it is very large and getting luggage over it was anything but fun. The location was very quiet, away from the crowds of San Marco. We never used a water bus - we really liked walking through the streets and enjoying Venice that way. It took us about 20-30 minutes to walk leisurely to San Marco. There were signs guiding us, so we did not get lost at all. I had a great time and would definitely return to this hotel!

Must stay at this hotel!!!

In all our experiences in international travel, this was clearly the best of our lives. The location is perfect for a stay in Venice, a short five-minute walk from the train station (over two bridges) and right on the Grand Canal. One can see the boats going by from the breakfast room. The room given us was clearly the best in the hotel, right behind the main desk but with a privacy door to the vestibule where our room entrance was located. There was an outdoor patio, equipped with a privacy row of trees AND a wall, making it impossible for one to be disturbed or observed. The breakfast was substantial with food of great assortment and unusually high quality, even espresso coffee if requested. Of greatest importance, however, was the quality of the staff, which was absolutely superb. Every single person there, from the manager on down, made us think that we were the nicest and most important people who had ever visited. We had tears in our eyes as we said goodbye to the staff, feeling we had made acquaintances with people we will remember fondly for the rest of our lives.
