An absolutely fantastic break and excellent location away from the hustle of Venice. A leisurely 15 minute walk to the Rialto bridge although a boat service exists every morning. The hotel rooms are excellent as was the breakfast each morning. Highly recommend the hotel.
This hotel is is a perfect spot for travelers touring Venice. We used our Marriott points, and they upgraded us, and treated us like kings. We loved the location, just far enough away from the major tourist attractions, but close enough to get there in minutes. We didn't want to stay in a location where the streets were packed and tourists were all over, and this location was perfect for us. We stayed in the winter, so I cannot say how busy it will be in the summer. The breakfast buffet was wonderful, it was very filling, and helped us start our day. The presentation was wonderful, the food very good, and the service was fantastic. The hotel offers a boat service to take people into the main city area, it's about a 10 minute ride. We used this once, but honesty, walking around Venice is easy, and it's the way to see the city, so we walked everywhere. You can walk to the main area from the hotel in about 20 minutes. one of the main walking roads, maybe path is better term, is about 3 blocks away from the hotel. Therefore, within minutes you are walking in a main path, that will lead you to anywhere in Venice. We loved taking this path, and just watching the people, and the buildings. I've said this with almost every hotel we stayed at, but once again, this hotel does not have good beds. You would think that a Marriott could have an actual King bed, not two twins pushed together, but the don't. Even worse, the bed was very uncomfortable, I was very glad to move to the next hotel for this reason, and only that reason. But honestly, you cannot find a great bed in Europe. Overall, great hotel, great location, and great service.
This was our first visit to Venice. We chose this hotel because it was part of the Marriott family. As we have found with other Autograph hotels, we found it to be luxury with comfort. The hotel is located in a more residential district of Venice. We arrived on a Sunday morning to quiet streets leading to the hotel - despite the fact that Carnival was just starting. We were greeted wonderfully by Pablo at the front desk. He told us of all the amentities in the hotel and escorted us up to our room. A beautiful, large, very quiet room on the 2nd floor. The breakfast buffet featured lots of meats, fruits, breads and breakfast cakes and pastries, along with the choice of a cooked dish. The property has a beautiful and extensive garden which in warmer weather would be a wonderful location to sit for dinner and drinks. We didn't use the spa, nor did we eat in the restaurant outside of breakfast. The glass work in the lobbies and sitting areas, was absolutely stunning. The hotel offers a free water taxi to Piazza San Marco. We didn't use it and instead enjoyed winding our way across the bridges and canals exploring as we went. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this Boscolo and would certainly recommend to others.
This is an 'Old World' style hotel. Classic Italian rooms, gilded mirrors, heavy brocade fabric, and marbled bathrooms. The garden is a real surprise and worth meandering through. The hotel manager was fantastic and went out of her way to assist us more then once with questions. We found this location to be quiet and a very pleasant walk to the more crowded areas of the city. One point of advice-if you arrive with lots of luggage (or heavy baggage) take a private water taxi-worth the expense especially for the pics.
We were welcomed with a warm smile and excellent friendly attitude. The room very spacious and dust free. We enjoyed the complimentary welcome sweets delivered to the room freshly baked. The toiletry was perfect beautiful aromatic soap bar for washing the face. Clean towels. Breakfast area small but very warm and homely. Prefect water flow in the toilet. Complementary taxi to the nearby island.
Beautiful hotel, if a little smaller than other Boscolo hotels, but the usual brilliant, friendly staff. Only downside is that for a 5 star hotel you expect tea/coffee making facilities in your room. There are facilities near Reception but we prefer to have our own in the room. Otherwise would definitely recommend this hotel.
The hotel is a beautiful palazzo with the rarity for Venice of a large private garden. In a charming and relatively quiet part of the city it is very easy to reach from the airport and provides a regular boat service to San Marco. Rooms are spacious, as are the public areas. Breakfast is good, though the breakfast seating area is a bit cramped. Service is at 5 star level.
I stayed at the Boscolo Venezia for three nights last weekend. I arrived via waterbus very early in the morning, and the warm welcome by the staff was wonderful. The manager, Barbara, the front desk agent, Georgia, and the rest of the employees greeted me warmly, and made me feel welcome at their gorgeous 17th century property. I was put in a junior suite with a view of the lovely rear gardens. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. The showers were warm with good water pressure. The decor was nice, and I was overall impressed. I only ate in the hotel for breakfast, and the buffet was full of tasty side items, while the menu items were fine. The breakfast staff alternated between warm and serviceable, but I never waited for anything. The truly wonderful part of my stay was how exceptionally helpful the staff was when I needed help with my room (WiFi went out due to snow), and in finding hidden activities within the city, as well as locations for sunrise and sunset photography.. I don't think I've been treated as well as I was here in some time, and recognized as a Marriott Platinum elite. I will be thrilled to come back with my family and stay again - hopefully in one of the suites in the garden next time. The only drawback in this property was that the lobby area was quite chilly due to the inability to truly keep all of the entrances completely closed, and the weather was freezing or below.
There is a quiet spot in Venice. It is found on the Fondamenta Madonna Dell'Orto in an old embassy converted into an Autograph Collection, Boscolo Venezia. I have stayed here with my spouse and kids and always been more than satisfied by everything this grand hotel has to offer. The rooms are grand and some look out over a small canal, though the irregular, not-so-noisy boat traffic does little but leave you wishing for more. The grand ballroom, where an amazing buffet breakfast is served daily, exits to the west into the largest garden in all of Venice. I'm sure weddings and other events are held outside here, but the four or five times I've been here, I have always been able to wander into this unusual-for-Venice natural landscape. There is even a sunken earth dome where ice used to be kept. This garden leads to the water where several waterfront rooms may be found. There is an amazing spa that provides guests, at no extra charge, an hour of use a day of the steam shower, jacuzzi and sauna. It is an outrageous bargain, and the women who runs the spa is an utter delight! The hotel provides water transport to St. Mark's Square and to Murano at no charge and will arrange to pick you up should you care not to walk back. The neighborhood is quiet with a few shops and amazing restaurants within short walking distance and there are small groceries and pubs nearby, as well. If you desire some quiet in what is almost always a frenzy of Venetian tourists, this is your place. It oozes of old world charm and wonderful service and provides a great respite from the craziness of most of Venice. If that weren't enough, it is an amazing bargain when you add up all that you get here. Don't miss it!
The Boscolo is a beautiful building with a gorgeous little garden. It is out of the main tourist area of Venice, however the hotel provides a free water taxi service to the Piazza San Marco. The water taxi operators were great and acted like tour guides, always going in a different direction so that we could see different parts of the city. The staff were fantastic. The best thing to do is just get out and start walking...So much to see and such a beautiful city.
