I'm not a typical traveler and tourist attractions are always the last thing on my to do list. My goal was to wander the streets and experience Venezia at it’s purest form. Hotel Tiziano is perfectly located in the Dorsoduro district and maintains a quaint and intimate atmosphere. For my 7-day stay, my travel agency could not have picked a better location! I originally booked a standard room but quickly upgraded after checking in. The standard room is perfect if you’re stopping in for a night, but I like my space and upgraded amenities ;) The front desk was very accommodating and moved me to a one bedroom apartment just a few steps away from the main hotel. Appartamento 700 became my home for the next 7-days and I LOVED it! I had a great view of via Rielo, Rio di San Nicolo and Rio de le Terese. From my earlier travels in Rome, I started shopping at the local markets because the food was just as fresh and delicious as eating out. The small kitchen in 700 was perfect for this and definitely helped cut down on restaurant costs! It was also a new addition to Tiziano’s apartment accommodations and I was all too happy to be the “guinea pig” for the new room! The only thing it lacked was an information packet that you usually find next to the phone, but I assure you I did not lose any sleep over it! Hahaha! The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. From my luggage to assistance when I shorted the electricity in my flat at 3am (a story for a drinking night), everyone was amazing! When I wanted to explore Venezia, Luca at the front desk, provided a map and marked out several locations to visit. On another evening he drew a map of Campo Santa Margherita, the nearest piazza, and marked the best places to dine. I visited Campo Santa Margherita daily and at times up to three times a day! With it’s many great restaurants, grocery store and general shopping, Campo Santa Margherita was my “go-to” for everything. For those who crave the hustle and bustle of tourism, the Grand Canal area is a 20 minute walk northeast. I spent a day on that side and relieved any “shopping-itches” I had. Lol. It was worth the walk and physically standing in the picturesque scenes I fell in love with growing up. The best part of my time was exploring the streets of Venezia without a map. I would venture into a different direction and fall in love with new scenery, architecture or people! At the end of each day, it was so nice to return to my flat and relax a bit before heading out for dinner. One late night, I even experienced Venezia's version of an underground rave! My stay included breakfast and I enjoyed the morning assortment I’d grown accustomed during my two weeks in Italy. ***Side note: if you’re traveling to Italy and do not take the time to understand that the breakfast spread is NOTHING like a Vegas buffet, don’t leave a poor review because you haven’t taken the time to educate yourself on it, it’s rude and embarrasses those of us who respect other cultures.*** Everything you’d expect at a typical Italian breakfast was provided and delicious! I will return to this amazing little gem in Venezia and I will always request appartamento 700! Grazie mille Tiziano! Hai un bellissimo hotel e personale straordinario!

We like walking so decided to find a hotel that is not too close to major tourist spots - San Marco, Rialto etc. This hotel situated beside a quiet canal in the academic area is perfect. The walk to San Basilio vaporetto/water bus stop takes a leisurely 6-7 minutes and the walk to Piazzale Roma about 15 minutes. We asked the taxi to arrange a taxi from Marco Polo airport as we arrived late about 10:00 pm local time and expected that clearing security would be slow - it was! Our driver Filippo was waiting, and drove us to San Basilio within 25 minutes without any delay. He helped us with our luggage and escorted us by foot to the hotel. Not cheap at 70 euros but seemed like good value after a long journey arriving late in a cold and unfamiliar city! Our hotel receptionist Riccardo was waiting to welcome us, showed us quickly to our comfortable room and explained a few key things - working the air conditioning system, accessing the free Wi-Fi - which worked perfectly- and letting us know times of breakfast. We loved the tasteful restoration of the 15th century building. The area is interesting and quiet. The excellent Claudia was so helpful with directions and advice. She is a proud Venetian and answered all our questions in a thoughtful and passionate manner. Overall visiting Venice out of the high tourist season was a good idea. We were able to visit churches and art galleries ( apart from the permanently packed St Mark’s Square!) without queues or problems. Thanks to Claudia's advice we visited the Lido and Murano by use of the water buses quickly and cheaply. We also walked around some of the lesser known parts of the city - Dorsoduro itself where the hotel is located, Castello and Cannaregio. We loved Venice and will return - to Hotel Tiziano. However the city authorities need to take decisive action to control mass tourism ( especially the huge cruise liners that look so out of place), deal effectively with the worst effects of the city sinking and find a better way to enable local Venetians to stay living in the main city. Tough to do but it would be a tragedy to allow the unique beauty of Venice to be ruined by neglect of these critical issues.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Tiziano, in a quiet area of Venice, only a 10 minute walk from the bus station. The rooms were very clean, comfortable & warm, continental breakfast was very good with lots to choose from, Staff were very friendly & helpful, would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking to stay in Venice.

We loved this hotel. It’s a 10 - 15 minute walk to St Marks square, but definitely worth it. The rooms are quite large and decorated beautifully. Breakfast was lovely with enough choices for everyone. Only issue we had was walking back from dinner and there was a very unusual hide tide and we had to wade back in knee high water... we found it funny. Overall we loved this family run hotel, rooms are spotless and all staff are lovely and happy to help or give advise. Once you work out the water buses it makes getting around Venice very easy. Will definitely stay here again.

The location of this hotel is great, in a quiet little area away from the main stuff but easily accessible. We stayed just for one night and the hotel staff were incredibly kind and accommodating; let us leave our baggage there, answered any questions we had, gave recommendations for dinner. Our room was amazing - huge bed, big waterfall shower, clean and modern. Breakfast was fresh and good. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this place.

We are just back from a 4 night stay in this Hotel. The Hotel is situated by a narrow canal in the University district. Due to flight delays we arrived much later than planned but Anto was waiting and greeted us warmly before showing us to our lovely room no 205. This consisted of a comfortable bed, wardrobe, dressing table, large TV and ensuite bath/shower all exceptionally clean and well maintained. Breakfast was served from 7am-10am each morning by the ever helpful and smiling Primal. It consisted of fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, crosisants, sweet biscuits, 3 types of cereal, nuts and dried fruit, boiled eggs, and as much tea or coffee as you wanted and we must say the coffee was excellent. The reception staff especially Ricardo were more than willing to give directions and provided us with an excellent map. The Hotel is only a 10-15 minute walk from the main bus station in the Piazzale Roma, yes it can be a little difficult to find especially when you arrive in the dark - but we were lucky enough to meet 5 young ladies who kindly looked it up on their phone and walked us to the hotel door before continuing their night out. In fact everyone we met was very helpful. There is a good pizza place 'Dio Ray' just around the corner and more restaurants and bars in the nearby Campo St. Marguerita.

This hotel was absolutely stunning, just a ten minute walk from the bus station and is located in a quiet area of Venice. The hotel was a little tricky to find on our first night - but that's all part of the fun of Venice. Our room was a spotlessly clean, self contained apartment with excellent amenities and even under-floor heating. The breakfast was good with a variety of food and great coffee. The staff were helpful and pleasant giving us directions and tips for good local food.There were plenty of shops and bars nearby. The hotels location was excellent for walking to all major attractions, on one of the days we walked to the water bus station and took the water bus No2 to the Rialto and walked from that point to St Marks square. I would recommend this hotel.

Spacious room, varied breakfast & excellent coffee proved a great start to the day. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. The Hotel is a good 25 minute walk from the Square but benefits from the resulting quietness. Would recommend.

Hotel was hard to find at night but with a little walking we were able to find our way around. We enjoyed their breakfast and the quiet area. Our room was comfortable for three of us and the desk staff was helpful for directions.

You can't believe that there is such quiet and cozy place in the middle of Venice, just two lovely bridges away from water bus station. Very friendly and helpful staff of the reception met us and had been guiding us in everything we needed. Clean room, tasty and certainly sufficient breakfast. For sure, we would like come back (just for case, there is a flat option as well)
