Just home from a lovely stay in a cute little hotel. Staff so friendly and helpful. Room typical Venetian style with so much character, and exceptionally clean! Would highly recommend, as everything still walkable, and even when you get lost you find lots of hidden gems along the way!

Hotel Tiziano is a unique, tranquil, clean, and convenient hotel. Staff are very hospitable, helpful, and friendly. The hotel is located about 25 minutes away from St. Marco square, but we always took longer to get there as we explored and found hidden gems along the route that we would not have seen if we did not stay in this hotel (for example, the store that Amazing Race contestants painted their venetian masks in). The walk is enjoyable and if you have no mobility issues, do not take the public ferry boats to get to the main attractions. Make sure to contact staff at the hotel prior to your arrival so they can give you directions as to which ferry boat to take to get to the hotel, because, apparently, the schedule changes according to the season, but line 2 is your best bet. You have to take the ferry boat to get to the hotel from Piazzele Roma, but you can also take water taxi. We did not, the ferry boat is 7,5 euros one way. Other than that, book this hotel and enjoy Venice. We stayed in a room that is in their newer section and it was amazing. Clean, modern, yet the decor kept its own venetian charm (not that we care, as we are there just to sleep, but for those who do). The breakfast is great, there is a great selection of breads, croissants, cold cuts, cheese, fruit, fresh juices, and great Italian espresso or cappuccino. Side note: Venice in general is not very accessible friendly. This hotel is no exception. There are no elevators, and to get to it you have to walk and cross several bridges. So, if you have mobility issues, make sure to gravitate towards St. Marco square, as bridges there have accessibility ramps. Have fun in Venice!

This is by far one of the best places I have been to. The staff are really welcoming and friendly and they want to do their best so you can have a good stay. It was mine and my partners anniversary and they upgraded us to the apartment which is more than I could have asked for. It was beautiful, clean and in a good location. It is about a 15 minute walk from the centre but the location was great and near shops and amenities so the walk is really pleasant (by the water). I think it's in a perfection location where it's the right amount of busy. There was a lot of variety for breakfast such as a selection of cereals, cakes, croissants, fruit and tea/coffee. Everything was very clean and comfortable. If you don't know where to stay in Venice choose here, you won't be disappointed!

Staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Allowed us to leave our luggage early as well as leave it on check out day with a very late departure. Lovely continental breakfast, very clean accommodations, beautifully kept establishment.

When we arrived on a hot and sunny Sunday we were so well treated by the front desk that Venice looked already like haven. Her name is Giovanna and we have to thank her for the tips and for being so gentle. Actually the whole staff was kind. The place is away from the hordes of tourists and has no elevator so one need to be prepared to walk in Venice, which is for sure not a bad choose at all! Be fit and don't expect sophistication and you will be perfectly happy staying in Tiziano.

We had a great stay at Tiziano! Beautiful room and wonderful staff. We will stay there again if ever in Venice in the future. The breakfast was good and plentiful. If your American, don't expect an American style breakfast anywhere in an authentic Italian establishment. The staff also pointed us to the best restaurant that we ate at in Italy! Great place, off the beaten path, but a 15min walk from the most popular places in Venice.

Hotel room is clean, staff are very friendly, and close to a water bus station. Hotel staff recommended a restaurant, but we did not make all efforts of finding it. We just randomly picked a restaurant conveniently located: Dallo Zio. When we checked out the menu. Dallo Zio's staff offered us special of fish for 9 euros and seafood pasta for 8 euros. It was written on a blackboard. Sounded good so we ate there. When the check was presented to us, the pasta and fish turned to more than 50 euros. We were shocked. Then they explained the price is for per 100g. It was written in blackboard in very fine font. But they never told us at beginning. When we argued, our waiter, very friendly at beginning turned very nasty. He claimed to be the son of manager and called the police. But police never came. They held us until we paid the higher price. After I read TripAdvisor I found they have cheated many tourists. By the way, their seafood tasted very dry – must been frozen for a long time. In the next day we went to the restaurant recommended by the hotel. The food was great and staff were honest and friendly. A lot of local people were there. A hard lesson learned!

The location is great for us - short walk from train/bus stations, and out of the way of all the tourist hoards. 5 mins walk to the San Basilio vaporetto stop which can get you anywhere easily (figured out the vapo time tables are integrated into the google maps app pretty nicely, so just input stop to stop for directions and it will show you options for vapo locations and times). Honestly even if you want to spend your time around San Marco or Rialto (why, though, they're so crowded), and don't want to buy the vapo pass the walking time is still sub-20 minutes. The hotel is great - 4th century house (seriously!) that has been re-done very nicely but not so much that it lost the charm of the original? everything worked and it was very clean! We had a top floor quad room (traveling with 2 early teen kids) which had a queen bed that was the best bed we slept on out of the 4 hotels we stayed in across Italy, and a fold-out sofa bed, which was made for us before we arrived, so it was just another bed for us, and there was still plenty of room around it, and in the space between the door and the bathroom which had an easy-chair and a side-table and a couple desks to put luggage atop. Wifi worked well. They ask you to leave your key at the desk when you leave for the day since it's staffed 24/7 and they open the door for you when you approach (they remembered our names, too!) I found it odd at first that we leave they key, but was nice not having to carry it around and no risk of losing it! Breakfast was 7-10 daily and pretty typical breads/croissants/muffins (we just don't eat that much bread so we were longing for scrambled eggs our whole trip), but they did have sliced ham and cheese so I could get some protein, as well as cereals and 3 juice options and milk. And they'll make you espresso based coffees as well as a small pitcher of cafe americana if you like, after I realized I needed more coffee than I was getting in just an espresso or cappuccino. Staff was very friendly and spoke english quite well, but were very gentle with us when we tried to use our Italian and goobered it up routinely :) Wished all our hotels this trip were this nice and this affordable! (PS: saw a review about the hard pillows, but we didn't have that issue. I'm confident they would swap out pillows for softer ones if asked, since I know they have softer ones.)

The property was clean and a good value but the pillows could be used as paving stones. The staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast was very good and had a good variety of selections. The location was out of the way and was quiet. We would stay here again but would bring our own pillows.

What a gem, tucked away from the hectic craziness and busy canals that is Venice. It took us a while to find the hotel, but when we did, it was so worth the extra few minutes walk. The management gave us a map, along with directions to the closest Vaparetto station, as well as restaurant ideas. They were super helpful, and then helped us carry our luggage up to our quaint, gorgeous bedroom. It was beautiful: clean, spacious and had a high window opening onto a house behind, as is the Italian way. So quaint in every way. The spotlessly clean bathroom had a shower in the bath, for all requirements. After a good sleep, we enjoyed the very best of all our Italian breakfasts : juice, fruit salad, a variety of cold meats and cheeses, as well as pastries galore! Espresso unlimited too! We departed regretfully wishing we could have spent another few nights in the welcoming, friendly, quiet atmosphere.
