We are impressed by the beauty of the room, there was a general impression that you were traveling during the reign of the Doge's .. I was very pleased with the presence of modern heating appliances in the room and a modern marble bathroom. Friendly staff and excellent location in the heart of the city.
I am a great admirer of Venetian renaissance style and art. I wanted to incorporate that experience in my Birthday celebrations and Palazzo Paruta did not disappoint. The location is easy accessible and very quite. We had a room with canal view which was amazing. The room was in true Venetian decor which only enhance the enjoyment of staying in a palace. All comforts were provided, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast finishes at 10:30 which was great if you want to have a slow start. Overall I loved it and will most definitely visit again.
My boyfriend took my to Venice for a long weekend as an amass present. We travelled in Feb. He booked us into the duluxe room and it really is stunning. Lovely high ceilings and wonderful Italian/venetian décor. Lovely size room and bathroom and literally right next to the dining room and red room where they serve you afternoon tea. The staff are efficient and friendly although I found( like most hotels) day staff are better than the evening staff. We found more often than not that the night staff would say we needed to speak with the staff that were in the next day in the morning. But overall polite and friendly. The location was difficult to find when we arrived but I think that was down to us getting our baring's more than the actual location. In fact we worked out that we had a great location in the end especially for transport water boats, food and the general main things to do. Id highly recommend staying here! Only disappointment is the afternoon tea, I suppose being English we are used to a great song and dance when it comes to presentation and our afternoon tea sessions.. It shows on the website a lovely spread of goodies on plates and lots of tea when in fact you get two waffles, 'S' shaped biscuits and tea ( every flavor and option except British breakfast teas) of which I asked for in the end :) ( Sound picky I know but its all I like!) We paid a 40ish euro tax upon checkout. There are a few brochures in the lobby ( although mainly theatre or music related) The staff look after the hotel well, the day we were leaving I think one of the staff jet washed the whole hotel! If we go back we will probably look at this one again. Overall really lovely :)
We had a beautiful suite - upgraded, I guess we were lucky. All the staff were as nice as could be. Really good value and stunning hotel. The venue is perfect, 10 minutes walk to St Marks and the Rialto
At least off high-season, this must be one of the best value for money hotels in Venice. It is the second time we stay here, and we will return in the future. Location might be a matter of preference, but we find this hotel perfectly situated. Connection from/to the airport is easy by the orange vaporetto line. Get off at S. Angelo and it is 2 minutes from there (once you know the shortest way). Then you are in the middle of the San Marco district, one step away from Academia bridge, 10 mins from S. Marco square and less than 10 mins to Rialto. We stayed both times in a canal suite. These are big rooms, with traditional venetian decoration (a matter of taste, but it works for us). As someone has mentioned before, one of the suites is near the kitchen, so you might hear some activity in the morning when they start preparing breakfast. But if the second door in the room entrance is properly closed, the noise is minimal. The bathrooms have their issues. All in all, they are perfectly ok, but in one of them the shower is too low for someone my height (1.85m) and in the other suite the protective glass panel opens and closes in a way that makes it quite challenging getting in and out of the bathtub. The suites offer bathrobes, slippers and a nespresso machine. We found the rooms and bathroom properly cleaned in both our stays. We did not have any issue, so our interaction with the personnel was minimal, but they were accommodating and pleasant (in this our second stay I had requested specifically one of the suites. It was occupied the first night, but they offered us to change to it from the second night. The move was smooth and we appreciated they went this extra step to fulfill our wish). The common areas are also decorated in traditional venetian style. The "bar" area, just a salon with armchairs, is comfortable and relaxing. They offer a complementary tea+cookies between 16 and 17.30, which is very welcome if you happen to be at the hotel at that time. Wifi is free and works fast and flawlessly. Breakfast is good, with an ample choice of both warm and cold items. Coffee is very good and the man managing the breakfast room is extremely nice and competent. All in all, a recommendable hotel at least in low season. As we only have experience with the suites, I can not say anything of the rooms. But the suits are definitely good value. I do not know the prices for the high season, but in low/middle season I would recommend to stay in one of them.
We stayed here for three nights in January 2017. We stayed in a superior double, which was spacious and clean with a great shower. Breakfast was good with a wide selection of food to choose from. The main waiter at breakfast was great and nothing was too much trouble. The location is the best thing about this hotel; it's a five minute walk to St Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge. Overall would highly recommend!
The service was fantastic; the main lady that checked us in was fantastic and the bell boy is a really nice touch! It makes you feel very important! The room was very nice, really fancy and a good size. The bathroom was huge although the shower head was not too great. Mirrors were all a good size, although the mirrors in the room were a little dirty and the magnifying mirror in the bathroom not very well positioned. The TV was huge but the beds were not immensely comfortable. We had a few troubles flushing the toilet as it was always running/leaking leaving the water reservoir empty when it came to flushing. Also, read about afternoon tea but this service was not mentioned at the hotel? Location was good - not far from the water bus stop San Angelo and very close to the main attractions like Piazza San Marco and the Realto Bridge. There were also a few restaurants nearby. Overall, really nice hotel and pleasant stay!
We stayed here for two nights in December. The apartment was diagonally across from the hotel. It was on the second floor. It has a nice kitchen, a couch that is a sofa bed, a large king-sized bed, two bathrooms. It was a very nice apartment. However, when you first walk into the building -- on the ground floor -- and as you walk up the stairs to the second floor, there is an incredibly bad stench. The stench doesn't exist outside the apartments (so it isn't caused by the canals) nor does it exist inside the apartment. Not sure where it comes from but we basically hold our breath from the time we open the main door into the building until we open our own door and get inside.
Wife and I stayed here for two nights just after New Year’s Eve, and honestly speaking our experience at the hotel did not start off well.. The room we were given had a major leak from the wash basin, and the basin was right at the entrance of the bath room – The wet marbled floor was a major slip hazard - Considering the busy period, the hotel was running full; we checked-in quite late in the evening, hence the hotel management had no other free room to offer (or that is what we were told). We had to wait until the following day for it to be repaired. Speaking more of about the room, the room looked grand (with a royalty touch), clean and well maintained – But the downside is that the room is ‘match-box’ sized.. It is probably 1.5 times the body length of an average man on all sides. This is certainly the second smallest room I have ever stayed in (first being one on Champs Elysees, Paris – which was just an arm length bigger than the double bed we were offered). The bathroom is quite cramped as well. Apart from the initial hiccups, rest of the service experience at the hotel was decent. We had the best breakfast spread compared to all other hotels we stayed in Italy during this trip. Special mention to the man managing the breakfast counter in the morning – always to your assistance when needed The hotel is well located as well – just alongside one of the Venetian water canals, 5 minutes’ walk from St. Angelo water bus station, and 10 minutes’ walk to Rialto Bridge and St. Mark’s Square. Only coz of the room size, I will look at other options in Venice during my next visit; however if not for that, I would certainly return back to Palazzo Paruta.
We spend 4 nights at this hotel in a standard double room. Fast check in, nice staff, nice ambiance. The hotel has a romantic, Venetian look. The room was quiet, small but very clean, nicely decorated (vintage-y 18th century kind of), with all the expected amenities (including free internet), and a bottle of champagne to welcome us (nice touch). Spotless clean bathroom; nice toiletries, bathrobes, slippers, etc. Excellent breakfast/tea room and food choices! Great location, within walking distance (a very nice walk) from Piazza San Marco and great restaurants nearby. Definitely recommended, we'll stay again when in Venice! If you intend to spend time in the room, a standard double one is much too small so I suggest to upgrade. We spent all our time in Venice sightseeing and going out so the standard double room was perfect for us.
