Hotel Gabrielli

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We selected this hotel due to the location and the 4 Star rating. This was NOT a 4 Star hotel and should be reclassified on the Orbitz website. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Small dirty rooms. Dangerous broken stairs in the halls. No water pressure to take any kind of shower. BLACK MOLD on the ceilings and walls in the bathroom. The air conditioning did not cool the room below 85F, if that. There was a Black and white tiny television hanging from the ceiling. I haven't seen a black and white tv since the 1970's. Just a dirty, disgusting hotel. Nothing good to say about our stay in this hotel. If we had not prepaid, we would have stayed elsewhere after seeing the rooms. Very disappointed. I do not recommend this hotel.

The room was small and had no view. Great location and nice staff. But it was not a 4 star quality hotel.

The location was perfect, just across the street from one of the public boat transportation stops. Easy walk to all the sights. My room was VERY small, but who wants to stay in their room when you're in Venice?

Old fashioned elegance is clearly visible in the main rooms and gardens of this historic hotel but it has seen better days (as has much of Venice!) Location is very convenient to 2 "water bus" stops and you can also walk down the wide street(Rio degli Schiavoni) in front to St. Marks in about 10 minutes. Staff is gracious and most have clearly been there a long time. The owners are also very much in evidence at mealtimes. The church where Vivaldi was baptized is right behind the hotel and is still a parish church. The Scuola Grande of San Rocco, filled with works by local boy Tintoretto, is right down the street. (We noticed flocks of tourists from the cruise boats, with their guide holding some pendant aloft to keep everyone together, walking by the front of the hotel from the vaporetto stop to San Rocco. It was nice not to be part of the mob scene!) Weekend (Sat. thru Sun. afternoon) was extremely crowded in Venice, even in the Spring. Later on Sunday and the rest of the week it was very serene at least when we were there. The hotel was always peaceful even when there were hords outside.

The hotel was very old and I'm not use to old hotels. The bathroom was very dim and not enough lighting and the wood floors also creeked. Everything in the room was out dated. TV, telephone, beds, etc......but it's Venice!! The hotel staff was friendly though.
