We stayed in the annexe of the hotel, which is just across the canal so you do not actually feel part of the hotel. We paid £240 per night (this did not include breakfast which was another 20 Euros - didn't try it). The room was above a little shop overlooking the canal and almost opposite the hotel, it was a well-sized room with a largish shower (though this leaked) and a good sized wardrobe room and bed. Upstairs was a family and we heard the kids running around above us. The view of the canal was nice, the air conditioning worked well. But no free water, or chocolates, there was shampoo or shower gel, we even ran out of toilet paper! This was meant to be a luxury hotel. The main hotel may have been lovely, the courtyard looked nice and the concierge was polite and helpful, but I would not recommend the annexe part of the hotel unless it was half the price.
Arrived by private water taxi from the airport. Only way to arrive, felt like the King and Queen. Hotel is right on a canal and so accessible to Piazzo San Marco. There are so many shops and restaurants all around. We just wandered and got lost, found some enchanting places doing this. Coming back to the cool oasis of Liassidi Palace Hotel after a days outing was so lovely. Hotel can also arrange complimentary water taxi to Murano. All staff were very friendly, especially Gonzalo and Matteo in the courtyard bar. Our room was on the ground floor with views over the canal and restaurants opposite. Room was large with table and chairs, comfortable bed and large bathroom. Would highly recommend and definitely return if back in Venice again.
Stayed here for 3 nights recently. It is conveniently placed for St Marks Square, the Grand Canal and there are shops and restaurants in every direction. The central position means that most sights are only a 10-20 minutes walk away. We had a water taxi from the airport which was a lovely way to arrive. The room was small for a “deluxe double”, hardly any room at all. The bathroom though was huge and the jacuzzi bath was just what we needed after a day on our feet sightseeing. For the price we paid we would have expected toiletries and coffee sachets to be replenished. Two sachets of coffee for 2 people for three nights is not enough. I had a coffee 2 mornings and couldn’t have one in the room the third morning, and unfortunately didn’t notice beforehand. I guess it would have been rectified if I had asked, but I would really expect the chambermaid to check, they do in budget hotels. We didn’t find the staff friendly (although they were all polite), with the exception of the evening bar attendant who was extremely friendly and attentive. He made some very tasty cocktails, and even made me a special one for me on my birthday, thank you. Breakfast was good, and we had a canal view two of the mornings which was a bonus. All in all it was a nice stay in a great location.
We stayed in the separate Wellness Suite, the building is 1-2 min away from the main hotel and the entrance could look a bit sketchy (as if you would walk in any other house on the street, only a doorbell indicates the room), but the comfort offered by the room in unbelievable. You have a sauna, huge shower that is also a steam room, jacuzzi and separate living room. It could easily be a fully equipped apartment. Location is extremely convenient and close to San Zaccaria ferry stop. If you don't need breakfast in the morning, as walking to the main hotel might result annoying, you can just buy something and have a coffee or tea in the room with the complimentary machines. Whenever you read that rooms in Venice are small, you haven't seen this wellness suite.
We stayed at this wonderful hotel for 3 nights mid week. From start to finish it was a great experience. The staff are all without exception outstanding, they just can not do enough to make you feel welcome. The rooms are very spacious and well equipped and breakfast was very good.They have a very pretty courtyard that is like a little oasis for drinks and coffee. We arrived at the hotel from the Airport by private water taxi, Wow this is a truly wonderful experience that I would recommend to anybody. The hotel is a short walk to St Marks square with loads of little restaurants and cafes along the way. We will certainly book this hotel again when back in this truly wonderful city.
Booked an Executive suite for a short stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As neither of us had been to Venice before I chose it as a surprise for my wife. terrible travel to get there with first Geneva and then Vienna airports closed by snow we arrived a day late after an appalling unplanned overnight in a hovel of a hotel in Vienna. After that experience this hotel was paradise. The suite was enormous and furnished with beautiful antique furniture. Everything from the moment we arrived at the hotel canal entrance by water taxi from the airport to our departure at the same entry was an absolute pleasure. I strongly recommend this hotel and Venice. A quiet location on a small canal but only a short walk to St. Marks Sq and other attractions.
The hotel is only 5 mins from the front yet remarkably quiet when you want it. 5 mins from the basilica and 15 from Rialto. The rooms are cosy but have all amenities that you could require and best of all, I have to say the staff are amazing - incredibly friendly and will go the extra mile for you. A must stay place for any couples in my opinion. Thanks for your an amazing holiday!!!
We stayed here for 4 nights, the hotel is clean and in a superb location- 5 mins walk from San Marco square! We loved the neighbouring streets, lots of restaurants and little gift shops. Our room was clean and spacious, it was the ground floor room next to where they serve breakfast. This was not a problem we never heard any noise! Our room also overlooked the canal. The bathroom was clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was good, lots of pastries fruit and yogurts. All the staff here were very pleasant and couldn’t do enough to help. Upon arrival we were allowed to check in early which we really appreciated after an early start! If you are coming to Venice book this hotel for the fabulous location!
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.
