Liassidi Palace Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Stayed here for two nights over Easter at the recommendation of a friend. As a solo traveller I did not need a suite which was all that was available in the main hotel but the hotel also has rooms in 'their other building'. I think that reasonably a traveller would expect 'the other building' to be of a similar quality to the main hotel. It is most definitely not and had I realised, there is absolutely no way I would have wasted the money. I feel utterly let down and frankly ripped off. I arrived in the pouring rain and had to wait for my room. I was beautifully looked after by both the reception and bar staff, who I have to say are fantastic! The reception staff called a porter who was clearly unimpressed to have to take me to 'the other building'. He was haughty and non-communicative. He set off at breakneck speed the 'one minute' walk to the other building not caring apparently that he was leaving me behind, stuck behind many tourists. The 'other building' turned out to be a run down building, with peeling rendering, down an unlit alley more than one minute away, where the back entrances to some restaurants stored their rubbish. There was no light to be able to see to put the key into the lock and indeed no lighting at all at night (great for a lone woman traveller!). The building itself smelt damp and musty with a very nice broken vase holding umbrellas on one of the very narrow landings. There is a lift but we struggled to get two people (and I am small) and a case in. The quality was that of a poor quality B&B. The room itself was small, which was fine but there was nowhere for me to work at my laptop with a shelf and chair that were incompatible, had a shower with so much limescale on it that it looked furry and as I discovered the next morning, a number of resident mosquitos! (in March?????). The haughty porter made no attempt to explain how anything worked, including the satellite TV, for which there was no instructions in the room. The next morning I went to reception and explained my concerns. The receptionist adopted a haughty air and made no attempt to emphasise or apologise. To my horror one of the bar staff later indicated that the staff use this room. Really? For nearly £200 a night I'm in the staff quarters????? The actual location of the hotel is fabulous near to St Marks Square but that does not obviate the downsides of the building I was staying in or the haughtiness of some of the staff. Had the hotel description been clearer there is no way I would have booked it. Do not recommend.

We had two rooms booked at the Liassidi; same category; same cost. One room was large and quite nice; the second room was small - had to turn sideways to walk along the bed. Really annoying to book the same room at the same cost and have it be so different. Second room needed a good coat of paint and a new rug. No clock or radio (or even hair conditioner) - felt like a cheap hotel. Don't bother with this one - too many nicer places to stay in Venice.

Had a three night stay here. I called to say I would be checking late and they were absolutely fine with that, and when I did arrive they were happy to suggest local restaurants that would still be open for me to have dinner. The room was on the ground floor with a view over the canal. I thought this might be a little noisy being next to the canal and next to where breakfast was served, but it was very peaceful. Breakfast was good, with a great selection, and the coffee was strong and hot, perfect for my taste! The hotel was a great place to base myself for my visit to Venice, with the main areas of St Marks an Rialto just a few minutes walk. There are loads of great restaurants nearby to choose from. The water bus stops are also quite close so travel further afield was easy. I would definitely stay here again.

We were very happy with our stay here. I had been to Venice once before and found the hotel I stayed in then disappointing - cramped and worn. The Liassidi Palace is lovely. Our room was beautiful. The breakfast is a good spread. Staff were helpful. And when my husband left some things in the room they found them and sent them to our next hotel. My only complaint was that the service could have been warmer. But I would definitely stay again if we find ourselves back in Venice.

We recently stayed at Liassidi. Compared to other SLH properties, I was disappointed. The rooms were dated and a bit weird. The bathroom still had a very old style central hairdryer, I had to request a proper hair dryer. The desk staff were nice but the service staff in the breakfast room were surly.

Having reserved and cancelled various Air BnB properties and other hotels I finally found this gem and booked a great deal online direct with the hotel. We were not disappointed! Situated on a pretty canal we had reserved a Deluxe room with a canal view. The rooms are not large which is usual in Venice, but the bed was huge and comfy and the decor was nice. The highlight was the whirlpool bath which we found invaluable to soak our muscles after hour and hours of walking!! Breakfast was generous and had heaps of options and we got the table with a canal view every morning because my husband insisted we were up and away out before the crowds descended! A gem of a hotel in a great location only 10 mins from the main attractions but away fro the hoards.

this is a peculiar hotel, a few minutes from San Marco, it has its main entrance in a small "calle", but several rooms overlook the canal and a very open space, a nice view indeed. Good breakfast, in a scenographic room, practically by the canal- Most of the staff is cheerful and helpful. There is an enjoyable, smart atmosphere in this hotel, very simple and easy going and, at the same time, quite elegant. When you have the chance to benefit from one of the special offers they launch in the low season, this is indeed one of the most interesting in Venice.

Just can’t thank the wonderful managers and staff at this hotel. They made every effort to ensure we felt like king and queen. The hotel is beautiful and our suite on the top floor over looking the canal was the best we’ve ever stayed in. Great communication beforehand and everything was better than we could have possibly imagined. Thank you all so much for a perfect 4 nights in romantic paradise.

Stopped off for cocktails. Very warm welcome. Sat on the edge of the canal in the bar watching the gondolas go by drinking expresso martini cocktails . Beautiful afternoon . The hotel has a venetion feel , the staff are very attentive and give you 5 star service. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon

What can I say about this hotel but Amazing!! Firstly the location is superb for anyone wanting to get around and see the sights. They state 10 min walk from the water bus but I would 5 mins max even getting lost along the way lol. The staff in the hotel are absolutely superb being treated by your name every time they see you just shows how personal and intimate the hotel is. We stayed in a junior suite with a canal view which doesn't disappoint the views are amazing and the room to match. Breakfast was included and as continental breakfast goes it was great. First time I have actually had fruit our of the bowl as every other time it looks as if it had been standing there days or just out of a can but not here freshly cut fruit. If you are looking for the personal luxury hotel at an amazing price this is the place for you.
