Honestly, if it wasn't for the size of the room it would've gotten a five but we got an upgrade due to being Marriott gold in the room was the size of a closet. Living in New York City I don't expect a huge room in a major city, but this was very small. The staff at the hotel we're all quite nice and made some good recommendations for bars and other things. The property and grounds are quite spectacular. They also booked us a tour of the Murano glass factory and send us a private boat to get over there. That was very nice. They also run a shuttle service by boat from the hotel to St. Mark's Square. Breakfast that was included with our room was also great. A large bread with many available options. Location was great for us, away from all of the craziness of Venice near the train station. Was a quick water taxi to get there. Would highly recommend the location if you don't want to feel like you're trapped amongst hundreds of thousands of tourists.
My husband and I visited Venice for our first wedding anniversary. The Boscolo Venezia definitely exceeded our expectations. From the moment we stepped in to appreciate the chandeliers and artwork, we were greeted with friendly faces. The team at the reception desk were ever-willing to offer us advice on the best tourist sights, as well as how to get around the magical walkways. Breakfast was delicious and we thoroughly, the rooms were spacious and extremely clean!! I hope that we have an opportunity to return to this wonderful location.
Quaint hotel with an excellent breakfast buffet. The birds where a little aggressive but the hotel is in such a lovely setting. Easy to get from the airport to hotel, hotel provides shuttle to San Marcos square, and easy access to transportation to the train station. You even walk back to the hotel if need be.
So like many Venice hotels this hotel is located far from the airport, and you need to get there by boat. It would've been extremely helpful of the staff to have sent us helpful information on how to get to the hotel from the airport. Especially given the circumstances. We wasted €50 euro on a taxi that took us to a place we still had to walk 25 minutes in pouring rain to get to. When we called the hotel they didn't offer the clearest directions either. Upon arriving at the hotel, which was booked as part of the AmEx platinum Hotel Collection, we were told (Pablo, night time desk attendant) we had been upgraded but then when I asked about the $75 credit for spa, meals etc. he let slip he didn't realize we had booked through AmEx so he would apply th credit. And even though the print clearly says we can use it for the spa, we were told we couldn't because it's a different billing system (what?). Our room was easily the worst hotel of our trip through Paris, Venice, Florence and Rome. The rooms are disgustingly dated and it looks like someone's grandma had the final say in all things design related. Also the AC didn't function at all. When we called the front desk we were given this excuse about the AC being regulated by the government since it was a government building, and since it was unseasonably warm, they hadn't gotten the go ahead to switch to AC. Which seemed reasonable until we had breakfast the next morning and the AC was blasting in the dining area. The breakfast wasn't good and was horribly overpriced. The ONLY saving grace of this hotel was the night time bar manager on Wednesday evening. He was friendly, explained the different grappas to us and took the time to make a sample Spritz for my wife who was curious about the drink. I definitely wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Plenty better hotels.
Amazing Palazzo in Venice, beautiful rooms, amazing garden at the back of the hotel. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff most do speak English. Walking distance to most sites in Venice away from the bustle of all the tourists.
Excellent. Great hotel and hotel team. Breakfast is awesome. An outstanding buffet, very rich and tasty. Room is very comfortable. It seams that the management is paying attention to every small detail We stayed in the hotel for two nights and couldn't expect more.
We enjoy our stay here in Venice but the hotel called and set my family up a private walking tours. The tour was HORRIBLE ....... There were only four of us and we could NOT here her. We asked her to speak up several times and it didn't help. The tour ranges between $100 - $200 per hour and it was a total waste of time. Our family has been on many walking tours in Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Paris, California and etc. we expected to learn things from our guide but that wasn't the case. My whole family including the kids said this was the WORST tour. She gave us 3 facts about the island and that's it. She basically show us how to walk from Our hotel to St. Mark's square. She walked in head of us for most of the tour, barely stopping to give us facts or history about the island. It was so bad that I decide to video out tour. You can see her walking in front of us for a long period of time before even stopping to wait or to give us facts or history about Venice. We complained to the hotel and they didn't care. BEWARE .... if you choose to purchase a tour .. PLEASE do the research yourself and don't trust the hotels recommendation.
Nice hotel that is in a quiet location in Venice. Stayed on a low floor overlooking the front of the hotel. Room was on the small side. Hotel was quite pricey and breakfast was not included. The hotel had a complimentary boat service that took you to and from St. Mark's Square. Quite a distance to walk to the majority of the tourist sites in Venice.
What a wonderful find this hotel was. Beautiful romos and location. There was a very nice garden with wonderful landscaping. Our rooms were breathtaking, with many elagent touches. A great staff and fantastic breakfast!
Stayed here for a weekend break. Hotel is located in a quiet part of town but only 20 minutes walk from many of the main attractions. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Rooms comfortable but be prepared for some noise from rooms above if you stay on lower floors. Breakfasts excellent. Hotel also provides free boat shuttle to St Marks square. Would stay here again.
