Excellent Gluten free pizzas, any pizza on the menu can be made gluten free. Also a good variety on the menu of other dishes. The service was slow but staff were friendly and helpful. Reasonably priced for Venice. Would go back for the Pizza!!

What a hotel room were so small bathroom was that small you couldnt sit on the loo straight it looked like the bathroom was made in the wardrobe..the single beds were that small i fell out when i turned over ,bed heads and side board was that old it had mould on it i couldnt wait to get out

We stumbled across this place when searching for breakfast in the city. A great find: really good breakfast, nice peaceful square and friendly staff, all for 10 euros each. We went back for dinner that evening, and again the meal was great. We'd definitely aim to stay here if we were coming to Venice again.

Considering it is easy you can get gluten free options in venice is rubbish. As a Coeliac fish and salad dishes do not in my book class as gluten free that's lazy. I want pizza and spaghetti this is extremely hard. After 4 hours I found this place they sell san Miguel gluten free and are fully aware of Coeliacs so I had a pizza which was fine as good as uk in taste but with the atmosphere of Italy and accordian player makes it perfect. Welldone Hotel Malibran it means alot

Stayed 2 nights recently after getting off cruise. Hotel had previously provided directions from cruise port and these were very helpful. Hotel room basic with computer monitor sized tv and even smaller bathroom. Average sized person had knees making contact with wall opposite when sitting on toilet. Shower pressure just adequate, and temperature varied. Breakfast was cereal, fruit salad, boiled egg, toast, tea, coffee and fruit juice. and selection of cold meats. No variation. Location is good with short walk to Rialto bridge, main canal and various shopping and restaurants. Hotel advertises wifi but it was hopeless. Would look elsewhere next time.

This hotel is in a good location not far from the Railto Bridge about a 5 minute walk. It is about 50 metres off of one of the main through fares. Most of the tourist sites are in walking distance. The hotel was built in the 16th century so the rooms are a little on the small size the room had a cupboard, small TV, small dressing table and bath room. The shower is small and I had to turn side ways to get into it. The rooms were clean, the property was well maintained. There are stairs to negotiate to get to the rooms, so if you have knee problems be aware. Breakfast was good it had a variety of cereals, bread, pastries, scrambled eggs. fruits, coffee, and juices. The restaurant has good quality food, and tables outside to sit and watch people go by. A nice atmosphere. Good service. Some tips: 1. The ferry trip from the airport to the Railto Bridge is 15 euros. 2. When you alight from the ferry walk one block in and turn left walk along the street over a canal and about 200 metres turn left. This way you are not carrying you suit cases of 5 different set of stairs. 3. To enjoy Venice you need to get away from the main streets to enjoy the city, there are bars restaurants off to the side of main streets try you will be surprised of the quality and price of food. 4. The ferry for the train station can also be boarded at the Railto Bridge dock and is about 7.50 euros per person.

This hotel is in a great location and is reasonably priced. We only stayed one night before embarking on a cruise. I enjoyed the restaurant and even returned to eat there once more after disembarking from the cruise..

16th Century building so rooms are small but it is very clean and you could not be better placed for seeing everything in Venice. Restaurant is excellent and you get a 10% discount if you are staying in the hotel. It's not expensive and there is a good choice with the food very well presented. I am coeliac (gluten free) which did not pose a problem for them.

This hotel was in the middle of most things to see in Venice. It was not far from the Rialto Bridge about two blocks from the Grand Canal and about .5 miles from Saint Mark's Square with the Doges Palace and ferries to the other islands. The shopping around the hotel was second to none! It was a really great location. If you are looking for an updated "American" hotel, this place is not for you. The rooms are clean, but "quaint" and comfortable. The shower was small, but we each only used it once or sometimes twice a day, so were able to deal with it. The A/C was probably not working the best when we were there, but it was overly hot for June and we were on the third floor. It could have just been circumstance that made the room feel warm. There were three grown women in our room and we had plenty of space. The breakfast was good and the coffee fabulous!!! We had free WIFI. The staff was beyond gracious, very helpful and spoke English. Overall, you can not beat the location for the price. I would recommend this hotel, but do not think you are going to the Ritz or you will be disappointed. Great Staff, Location and Price!

Stayed at the Malibran for 4 nights earlier this month. Small room with minuscule shower room (typical of the age of the buildings) but nevertheless had everything we needed. Staff were quite helpful and the continental breakfast was more than adequate. Dined in the restaurant on our first night (Saturday) and although the service was fairly slow the food was excellent. Excellent also was the location, which is just a couple of minutes from the Rialto Bridge and only 5-10 minutes from St Marks Square. We would revisit.
