Recent guest reviews

This hotel surpassed our expectations. It was clean, welcoming, beautifully decorated and a pleasure to stay in. Fantastic location halfway between Rialto and piazza San Marco. The breakfast was amazing, as was the lovely Sylvia who took the time to talk to us each morning. Will stay here when we visit Venice in the future. Thank you.

This is a wonderful 4-star hotel! Rooms are very clean, updated, great bathroom / shower, great sitting area outside the room with beverage service and some of the nicest and most helpful staff we've ever encountered. Highly recommended centrally located hotel within a short walk to the Rialto Bridge and San Marco square. Great restaurants recommendations as well! We cant wait to return!

We recently stayed in this hotel and it was perfect. The location to the main square and the grand canal was perfect. The staff were excellent and very helpful,breakfast was very good and there was a good selection to choose from. We stayed in the junior suite (102) it was was well decorated and spacious,the bathroom was beautiful also.the room was very clean and was very comfortable and quiet. We would definitely stay here again, we could could watch the gondolas from the balcony all day. Thank you Aqua palace

We found this little hotel on one of my searches, and although I was hesitant since it wasn't on the Grand Canal, I am so glad we stayed here (mind you enough time has passed since having to lug our bags from the main Termini to the hotel, but that is anywhere you stay unless you take a very expensive water taxi). The decor was rather lovely, and the staff was extremely kind and helpful. We had a very early flight and they arranged for a water taxi to take us to the airport. We got a room with a canal view and it was absolutely beautiful. The room was a good size and the bathroom was great, too. And since our trip was part of our anniversary celebration, they had a bottle of presecco waiting for us upon arrival! I'd definitely stay here again - especially with how walkable Venice is.

We loved our stay here. The breakfast and room cleaning service could be improved slightly but other than that, we really enjoyed our stay and didn't have any complaints whilst there. The hotel staff make the effort to advise you on the great restaurants nearby and even book them for you.

Stayed for 1 night in November. Aqua Palace is nicely located and very good value for money. Location is very good, only 10 minutes walking to get to San Marco's Square and only steps away from Rialto Bridge. We have booked Junior Suite Canal View which was excellent. Room had lot of comfort with high ceiling, nicely decorated and big bathroom. Breakfast is ok, but nothing much to say about it accept that. Hotel staff in general is polite and doing very good job.

I stayed at the Aqua Palace Hotel while visiting Venice for Christmas. I wanted to be close to other members of my family staying in an apartment near Campo Santa Marina and still be close to the sights. The hotel was excellent. The room I had on the ground floor was large and very comfortable. The room was very quiet save for the occasional water taxi stopping to pick up guests in the morning that. The location was very close to San Marco, a 3 minute walk and maybe a 4 min walk to Rialto. The room rate included a good buffet breakfast. The staff were very helpful and got to know how you liked your coffee. I can definitely recommend this hotel.

it was an excellent time with the best canal view and clean classic room which has all high-sense details, amenity. I would strongly recommend to stay this hotel because it would give you a wonderful trip in Venice!

Stayed in this hotel 3 times already and I know for sure that it will be the hotel we will pick for our next visit in Venice. Great location over the canal, delicious breakfast, really nice interior and cozy rooms, but the service is absolutely above and beyond expectations and made us feel really welcome during all our stays there. Can’t wait to be back!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights over Thanksgiving. The staff was very attentive and friendly - they brought hot water to our room upon request. The location is walkable to all the tourist must-sees, but far enough away from the craziness to make it the ideal spot for a trip to Venice. Our room was spacious with a fantastic view of the canal. With that being said, I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 because some portions of the room needed to be replaced - the makeup vanity mirror in the bathroom fell off the wall during our stay as did one of the fixtures in the shower. Regardless, this is a beautiful boutique hotel and we would recommend!
