Had a wonderful time for my partner’s 50th Birthday. The complimentary bottle of prosecco put in the room was a lovely touch. The ground floor room was small but had a window onto the canal. Continental breakfast was ample and set us up for the day. Location was brilliant, close enough to St Marks Square which was a short, pleasant walk away. Couldn’t fault the staff, a beautiful building and an amazing weekend. Wouldn’t hesitate to go again!
There are alot better hotels in the area and alot more helpful and friendly reception staff. Before we arrived I emailed to say we would like a first floor room and as it is my husbands 60th birthday I ask for a bottle of wine in our room and to let me know the price. I wanted this to be a special break as my husband has been seriously ill this year. On arrival we were put in a ground floor room and no wine, when I queried this I only got a shrug of the shoulders and no apologies. We are a couple who never complain and we have never wrote a review. The reception staff never smiled and were not helpful on any issues.
I have wanted to be in Venice in a room overlooking a small canal for many years. To be able to look out my window and watch gondolas go by was my dream. This hotel was perfect! I could hear the singing and/or the accordian playing in the distance each day, and that was my cue. The staff could not have been more accommodating. I would definitely return to this quaint hotel with the perfect location!
We had a small but adequate room overlooking a side canal. It was a small window, so not much light and being ground floor you could't have the net curtain pulled back as gondoliers we going past at eye level every 2 minutes. Quite quiet however as no footfall past the room. Having said that the hotel was delightfully quaint and the staff friendly and helpful. The position however was perfect for us, a short walk from St. Marks Sq. but not too close, plenty of restaurants and bars close by, 5 minutes walk to the waterfront, couldn't fault it for location. No kettle, tea/coffee facilities, but there were glasses for the bottle of wine we took back to the room one night. Was perfect for the 3 nights we were there.
The hotel is a tribute to historical architecture with modern conveniences. I think almost every room must have a canal view. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent and the hostess was extremely nice. For those who must stay in contact with the rest of the world this hotel has excellent wifi. I suggest that you do NOT have laundry done. It is EXPENSIVE. Restaurants abound nearby so you will not go hungry. If you arrive in Venice by train I suggest that you pay the 'fee' (70 Euros) and have a water taxi take you very close to the hotel. It would be way too difficult to navigate the distance while dragging luggage. If you arrive at the airport take the commercial water 'bus' (15 Euros) and get dropped off in the vicinity of St. Marks. Use the "maps.me" app and you should be able to walk to the hotel in about 10-15 minutes.
We arrived early last week and were given amazing service from the minute we arrived. The receptionist informed us that we had been upgraded! The bellboy (Ali) was wonderful, as was the breakfast host. We loved the old palace... The tilted stairs, the old furnishings. My children 15 and 12 were fascinated by it all. Our view was to die for... Massive, with canal views on 2 sides! The breakfast was typically venetian and served in a beautiful dining room. We will most definately be back and will most definately stay at Palazzo Priuli. My husband had the most wonderful birthday. Thankyou so much! Family from Sweden (12/9 - 15/9-2017)
Lovely canal view Older style accommodation Canal view, is exactly that a view into the canal that at times was interesting The breakfast room upstairs, would be difficult for elderly to navigate with the stairs being uneven The breakfast room was very dimly lit The location is great and restaurant everywhere even outside the front door! We found the staff to be helpful and pleasant Would stay here again
We were totally blown away by how fantastic the Palazzo Priuli is! A 14th century building with high ceilings, cold A/C, and historical views out of every window. After getting settled we got a surprise delivery of sparkling Prosecco. Every time we turned around we were amazed by the history, the architecture, and the over the top customer service.
Palazzo Pruili really made our Venice trip. A lovely hotel with character which is only a ten minute walk from San Marco square, but also just out of the way from the main tourist spots with plenty of quieter (and cheaper) restaurants and bars nearby. Our room overlooked the canal, where we could watch the gondolas go by and hear the gondoliers singing, a pleasure to wake up to! There was an excellent continental breakfast choice and the afternoon snacks (particularly the prosecco) were a lovely touch. We could not commend the staff enough, particularly when our flight landed late and we had difficulty finding how to get to the hotel - the hotel sent a direct taxi boat to the airport to save us stressing and we really could not have been more grateful. Nothing was ever too much bother for the staff and they really helped us get the most of our stay. I really could not recommend this hotel enough.
This is our second stay on Palazzo Priuli and we like it even more this time! Good location, fantastic rooms and friendly people. You feel the history of the Town here. It is at a perfect location in Venice just outside the crowds of people. Kristian Eriksson
