Recent guest reviews
My girlfriend and I spent three nights at the Paruta, staying in a Deluxe room. The room was newly refurbished, still kept in an old fashioned, very Venetian style, with lots of colour and heavy draperies. The bed was marvellous, the bathroom clean and functional. It doesn't seem all Deluxe rooms have balconies, but ours had and we enjoyed it a lot, so we recommend you ask for one. The room was kept really clean, room service (we asked for ice cubes) was swift and the receptionists were helpful. Breakfast is served in the grand living room, with wonderful old (original, we assumed) paintings and details. The food was really good, lots of varieties of cheese, ham and other toppings, eggs and cakes. Service impeccable. As the Paruta is clearly in the upper ranges among four star amenities, we would however expected real fruit juices, not from concentrate. This being our first visit to Venice, and arriving after dark, it was first the next couple of days we fully understood how great the hotel is situated. Very few of the most noteworthy attractions - Piazza San Marco with the Basilica, the Rialto bridge and the Guggenheim are all within approximately 10 minutes of walking distance. It seems that hotels in Venice are really expensive in general. So is the Paruta; the room we stayed in put as book more than 300 GBP per night - in many other European cities, that would get you a decent room at a five star hotel when outside of the tourist season, like October is in Venice. However, if we come back to Venice, and right now, that seems likely, as it's a wonderful, strange and unique city, we would absolutely consider the Paruta. When everything works a little bit better than expected, the price premium is worth it.
First, the staff is absolutely wonderful. this was the last leg of our two week honeymoon, with Rome and Florence as the preceding cities we visited. So it was very disappointing to have such an awful room. The layout of the room was great. It was 158. Has a sitting room and a neat upstairs roof balcony. However, the carpet on the stairs is stained and worn out, water stains on the bedroom walls, along with the mildew smell, the couch is the sitting room is old, the bars for the pullout jab you when attempt to sit and the 'king' bed is 2 poor quality twin mattresses put together. Our backs are still sore from sleeping on those sagging mattresses. At least put decent bedding in the room! They don't believe in cleaning the room, only changing out towels and toiletries and spraying an overpowering deodorizer spray. The floor was filthy when we checked in, I don't think it's been mopped in a long time. Ran a damp tissue over the floor and it was black. Gross. Never walked barefoot or in socks, scared of what was on the floor. One of the robes in the room had holes, it is worn out and should have never been left for guests to use. The breakfast buffet was good, their courtyard is very nice. Maybe they have nicer rooms and we were just unlucky enough to get a room that hasn't been updated or cleaned in years. But I would never recommend or stay at the hotel again. It was truly awful.
I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I would stay here again. I booked a standard room and was assigned a room on the first floor(not a canal room). Hotel is quiet and in a great location! The room was nice but small. The breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I had to ask for the front desk to turn on the A/C because the fan in the room was blowing but it did not cool the room. I would caution others because the shower/tub is sunken in. If you are not able to climb in and out of the tub you may have a problem. The bed also had a crack down the middle. This seems to happen often but if this is something that bothers you, you should know.
We booked at Palazzo Paruta this year following a positive experience 4 year ago. We were not disappointed. The hotel is small and well located in the San Marco area, but in a quiet place within a few minutes walk of the Square. There are several excellent restaurants and good shopping nearby. We especially enjoyed meeting Juliano in the breakfast room once again. He gave us recommendations of places to visit and was as charming as we had remembered. The hotel also suggested a wonderful 3 hour tour of Venice (Venice Deluxe Tour by Antonio Barbini which we are so glad to have experienced. The entire staff was very accommodating and friendly. Highly recommend this lovely Venetian hotel.
This hotel was wonderful! We had a gorgeous suite with a small balcony that felt truly Venetian. The decor is stunning and so detailed. The hotel is centrally located. The staff is so incredibly pleasant. Our luggage was lost, and this hotel made us feel at home. Breakfast was fresh and served in a beautiful room. I highly recommend booking a stay here.
Palazzo Paruta is situated in a quiet plaza called Campo Sant'Angelo. It's a pretty quick walk from the S. Angelo vaporetto (water bus) stop, though there are 3-4 sets of stairs/bridges you'll have to traverse with your luggage. The overall location was nice. It's an easy walk to San Marco & the Rialto, and the square itself isn't overly busy or overrun with tourists. We stayed in the annex apartments, specifically the unit on the 2nd floor with the outdoor terrace (602 -- Deluxe Suite w/ Exclusive Terrace on the hotel's website). We didn't use it much because we didn't really have time, but it would've been pretty cool. It has an outdoor terrace with a dining table & outdoor seating. Though it's exclusive to your unit, others can look down into the terrace so it's not completely private. It was just my wife & I on this trip, but the unit was definitely big enough for a family of four or two couples, as long as two of the people don't mind sleeping on the pullout sofa bed in the living room. There are two bathrooms, so that was great. There is a kitchen. However, if you use it you are expected to clean up what you use -- dishes, counter, etc. There is a 50-euro cleaning fee assessed if you don't clean up the kitchen. The hotel gave us a complimentary bottle of some sort of sparkling wine, which was really nice. I think it was because I have some sort of Orbitz VIP status, but still good to come in to a pretty good, free bottle after a long day of travel. The annex is actually across the square from the main hotel. It wasn't a big deal. There is a restaurant just below called L'Opera, which again was convenient since we got in late & was open a little later than other restaurants. Breakfast was not included with our package, but the breakfast area looked pretty nice.
Venice was our first stop in Italy and this hotel made it a memorable start to a beautiful trip! The hotel is minutes from a taxi/boat stop and is located in a small town square with great restaurants and close to St. Mark's Square and other attractions. The staff were incredibly helpful! Not only did they ensure our time at the hotel went well, they helped us with scheduling the taxis at the closet stop, make restaurant reservations for us ( also made GREAT restaurant recommendations ) and were always there to answer our questions. I highly recommend staying here.
i went to venice when i was single and didnt have much to say about the place other than the usual cliche. but my wife booked a 2 night stay at this hotel for a good price... better than our booked hotel in florence and rome which was more expensive. so knowing venice from before i was ready to expect the small room, smelly canals, and such and wasnt really looking forward to it. the keywords are "apartment" and "annex" since my wife booked the cheapest for a family of 4, didnt really pay attention to details until we're there. so we went to the front desk to check in, the lobby is very well decorated and cool. we were told we are not staying at thehotel itself but rather in another building quite close from there. it was a good surprise because the room was really spacious with a fully functioning kitchen, a washer (they have the pods and btw i did laundry while in venice! of all places!) and dining area. they have rules in using the kitchen but its like being at home with cleaning cups and utensils. if you see the picture, the windows with lights on top of the restaurant is the living room and 2 windows without light is the bedroom. my daughters loved the folding sofa and we got our own bedroom. the hotel is situated in a small plaza and pretty close to st mark's and the accademia, not really that far from the realto station. finding the hotel the first time was the only time we struggled, the rest of the time it wasnt really an issue i dont know if its because its quite close to those landmarks. they have a complimentary trip to murano that we didnt get to use because we already have tickets for it. if i were to go back, il just go straight to burano for some sight seeing then maybe try lido and its beach all in 1 day. the day tour can really be exhausting in the summer which can be too much for kids. our euro trip was really highlighted by our stay in venice thanks to a comfortable stay at this hotel.
Stayed here on our last night in Venice last weekend. The hotel is quite lovely with a beautiful courtyard and classic, water entrance. our room was a one bedroom apartment with a terrace. Know that not all of their rooms are in the same building. We had to walk across the piazza to the other side and down an alley to get to the building. Not a problem but a surprise. The room itself was beautiful with gorgeous terrazzo floors, a large terrace with dining table and lounge area. We had a full kitchen, dining table, two bathrooms, and a funky Italian sculpture hanging in one corner! The porter who showed us to our room made a dinner reservation for us at a great little place about 15 minutes away near the fish market...fantastic food! Vini da Pinto...delicious! All said, the hotel was pricey but a fun splurge for our last night - probably won't stay there again since I'm kind of cheap when it comes to hotels but if you like a nice place and don't mind paying then I recommend it!
Waited a lifetime to take this trip. Just retired from the Armed services and wanted to supprise my wife who was there through the good and the bad. we opted to stay here. BIG MISTAKE!! if your going to go on vacation, you want to learn the language so you can get around and not look foolish. That is what I did. and true to the rude Euro customs, the fake blond behind the counter started with the snotting attitude and name calling all the while smiling in our faces. I kept my cool so my wife could enjoy this trip. they had to give us the worst room ever. the window opened to a smelly alley/ back 6x6 area with clothes and trash everywhere. This may be normal for Euros folks but not for your 25th wedding/ Retirement trip! I'm know American 4/5 star places are above and beyond. by our standards, this was a 1/2 star off the main street pay by the hour place.
