4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A lovely room with everything you need. We had breakfast by room service every morning, which was really lovely, looking out up the canal at the bridge of sighs! The staff were very friendly and helpful and even offered us a complimentary tour of the Morano glass factory! The hotel is in a great location just off the corner of St Marks square by the Basilica. The junior suite we stayed in was beautifully decorated in a venetian style with a marble bathroom. The only thing that stops me from rating this hotel as excellent, the back of the sofa was a bit dirty, however I did only notice it on photos afterwards otherwise the room was perfectly clean.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days and loved the room. It was clean, had a small balcony and got free breakfast every day delivered to our room. The staff is also friendly. My favorite part of booking this room is the fact that it is so close to everything including shops, museums and places to eat. Very satisfied with our stay here.

My wife and I recently had a five night stay and we had a very pleasant vacation. It is small but very central, all of the staff were excellent and could not do enough for us. Breakfast was served in our room (they have no dining room - it is small) which was a treat and Rafael the waiter was a treasure. All in all a great stay and we would return.

This room had the most beautiful view on the Bridge of Sigh. However the bed was very noisy which isn't ideal. Also we were woken at 6am on the first morning by room staff clanging dishes outside the room. Again not ideal when you've had a busy day walking.

The hotel was okay. they said it was 4 stars but I really take That as a big no . The hotel staff at the breakfast was kind. But reception desk was unfriendly. No information no welcome. I made a suggestion in the booking because we where married the day before. The never mentiont it. Overall low value for money.

Title "hotel" a misnomer No lounge dining room or bar facilities outside of ones room and an approximate 100 yard trek to a sister hotel for breakfast are more than an inconvenience Failure to have a mosquito protector in place does not inspire confidence

A beautiful room with an unbelievable view. I would highly recommend it the location of the hotel was just a few steps from St Marc square and right on the canal. The gondola's were going by all the time it was great.

Enjoyed a lovely 2 night break here. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Made our stay special with a few little extra touches which make all the difference. Definitely recommend it. Location couldn't be any more central to San Marco.

The house had no communal places for us to sit or hang out. The bugs in the house were HORRIBLE we all got eaten alive while we were sleeping. I woke up with 5 large bites on the side of my face 2 from mosquites, we were up several times in the night trying to kill them (we counted 11 we killed throughout the night) of the other people we were with got bitten in a line of 3 on their bodies from a different bug entirely. We contacted our host days before telling her that we had an extra person coming with us and they did not unlock enough rooms for us each to have a bad (not even enough for the initial amount for us all to have a bed) and so the good thing was they did come to unlock 2 of the bedrooms however it was very inconvenient especially when we had contacted them days before. Overall very unimpressed, our least favourite place we stayed on our trip. Venice however is beautiful.

Excellent customer service and stellar view. Nestled in the corner, a little away from tourists. Near the Piazza San Marco! Wonderful cafes nearby and easy access to shopping district and short walk to the Rialto bridge.
