This palace was a rich and magnificent residence of an aristocratic Venetian family, now it is an elegant and refined 3 stars Hotel, completely restored.
The Hotel enjoys of an interesting position, preferred by the intellectuals and artists, searching for quiet and inspiration.
The building's faade has a beautiful and remarkable "quadrifora" original of the age, when the building was a patrician palace.
Inside the Hotel, at the entrance, there is a stoned staircase that goes from the lobby to the second floor, once called "piano nobile", where there are some rooms.
The intelligent restoration has effected a correct and balanced compromise between aesthetical demands and the non-renounced functional requirements, essential an hotel that wants to keep step with the times. The hotel offers Lobby and Reception.

Mediocre at best

Stayed here in May 2014 The hotel is in a good spot, but that's about it. Our room was ancient and tiny (smallest I've ever stayed in). The walls were dirty with old mosquito blood and smudges, the curtains had dust on them and there was very few power outlets. Due to no screens being on the windows, you will get bugs. The room had no virtually no space for luggage to be opened, so it was either on the bed (gross) or on the floor in front of the door. The shower leaked and flooded the bathroom floor even with the curtain all the way spread out. The A/C did not work; it just blew out room temperature air. When I told front desk about the A/C, I was told that there's nothing they could do and was then told, in a snarky tone, that I may not have been using the thermostat properly (I was). Some of the staff was good and some not so good, it just depended on the day. The two guys that I dealt with were actually awesome. The breakfast was decent, but only available for 2 1/2 hours. It featured some lunch meats, cakes, cereals, yogurt, juices and more. The hotel pictures are very misleading and need to be updated. The standard double room is about 8x8' with a king bed taking up most of the space. There was an ancient broken radio table stand and some other old furniture in the room. The bathroom was tight, but manageable. Watch out for the bathtub, if standing to shower, as the floor of the tub is oddly curved and dangerous. The hotel displays the room keys right at the front desk which is not safe as it clearly shows guests who's around and who's not (they ask you to turn in your key each time you leave). I would not stay here again unless the hotel spent some money to update the bathrooms and clean up/modernize the sleeping area.

better for the young

Room 307 was not ideal. Very small . Water pressure was unkind. The bath tub / shower was next to windows and when standing my bells swung at Venice just as the bells in the towers do. No problem tho... when in venice do as the romans do.

Good location

Not too difficult to find, a short walk from Ca Rizzonica or San Basilio vapporetto stops. Fairly central but not overpacked with other tourists, easy access to the rest of Venice and surrounding lagoon islands. The majority of the staff were welcoming and helpful, the rooms were clean and well tended, if a bit old fashioned in style. The breakfast was basic and fairly unappealing and the dining area is in need of redecoration. The street it is on is quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed wandering the nearby streets and eating at the restaurants at nearby San Basilio. A particularly good restaurant was the nearby Avagaria, expensive but lovely food - great for a special occasion/last night treat. AiOcho at San Basilio serves great pizzas and there are plenty of small bars and family run eateries nearby. As a gay couple we felt welcomed and comfortable staying here. The facilities for wheelchair users is limited. We would visit the Pausania again, it is not 5 star by any means, but we were pleased with our choice mainly because of it's location and use as a good central base to discover this beautiful city.

Beautiful Hotel

The hotel is a beautiful converted palace. The room we stayed in had a beautiful fresco painted on the ceiling.It is located about halfway between San Marco and the train station. It is on a canal and near a couple of plazas.

Two days in Venice

It was our first time on Venice. The hotel is located in a great area. Close to the taxi boat. The staff is great, really friendly people. The room is really clean. The bathroom was a little small for a 6' guy. Overall, I will definitely stay on the Pausania hotel on my next trip!!!

Great hotel in Venice

We stayed here for a wedding for 2 nights in September 2011. Although it was a little hard to find at first, we ended up loving the neighborhood once we walked around. Close to St. Mark's and the Rialto. Had a nice breakfast and a computer w/free internet to use. The room was clean and was the only place we stayed in all of Italy that had good "American quality" air-conditioning.

Excellent hotel

Welcoming, comfortable, quiet, good value, excellent location. 4 minutes walk to a vaporetto stop on the Grand Canal; 7 minutes walk to Accademia gallery; 20 minutes walk to St Mark's Square. Good places to eat nearby.
