Venice was our last destination on our trip around Italy and I’m glad we chose to end it here as Venice was more relaxing than Rome and Florence, it’s a very pretty place that you can just wander at your own leisure or relax by the canal with a drink. We arrived in Venice by train and took the water bus which drops you pretty much straight outside hotel. The man that works on reception that can speak English (sorry didn’t get his name) is so friendly, he made us feel very welcome and was very helpful. Our room was really nice, very clean and the shower very powerful and hot! Breakfast was great, you help yourself and it’s lovely having the view of the canal. We had dinner in the restaurant on our last night and the food was excellent, we had seafood pasta and the chocolate tart it was my favourite meal I had in my whole time in Italy. I don’t think it was anymore expensive than other restaurants in Venice and you got 10% off the bill as you’re a guest staying in the hotel. All staff in the restaurant were very friendly and you can have a laugh and joke with them. Hotel is in excellent location and where else would you like to stay other than on the canal front while in Venice?! I would recommend this hotel very highly, thank you for a lovely stay.

Very well located. Great staff. Great service. Get the room with a water view. Super water pressure in the shower. We also ate at the restaurant. I enjoyed my octopus dish. The seafood pasta was also very good. It is a little pricier compared to our other meals in Venice. Taking the water taxi was very convenient. We were a group of 7 so it was more economical to take the taxi which I consider as a limousine.

I stayed here for a week on 12 March 2018. The location is great with the water taxis and the vaporetto (water bus) stop almost right outside the hotel. Rooms were clean and comfortable with great views if you get the lagoon view room. True, no lift, but the stairs were easy and the staff is very helpful. Comfortable beds and linens and you could not hear any noise from the other rooms. IT is right on the promenade with many dining choices, however, once of the best meals I had was at the restaurant in the hotel!!!!! also, GREAT BREAKFAST included in with the room. I priced other hotels with likely the same view I had and they were 40-75 euros more expensive. Highly recommend this hotel. Friendly fun staff!!!!

This hotel is in a brilliant position minutes walk from San Marco and the waterbus is just outside.We booked a room with a lagoon view which was very warm comfortable beds,lots of hot water and lovely large towels.The room was serviced to a good standard.Delicous breakfast continental buffet with a good choice .

Having decided to attend the New Year celebrations in Venice this year we chose The Wildner both for its location and the reputation of the restaurant. We secured a lagoon-view room on the first floor and found it to be perfectly acceptable for the two of us. I could understand that the lack of a lift may be a problem for some but staff are always on hand to carry luggage up or down if required. As mentioned in other reviews, there is a general vaporetto stop (San Zaccaria) outside the hotel and the airport "bus" maybe only 50 yards away at stop "D" - from memory it was €15 one-way. All of the areas of Venice are easily accessible on foot or on buses at €7.50 for a single ticket or €20 for an unlimited journey day pass. Breakfast selection was fine and the coffee fresh and flavoursome. The restaurant has been on TV in the UK (Rick Stein) and we were not disappointed with either lunch or dinner. All of the general staff and restaurant waiters were cheerful and helpful but we would single out Michele on reception for his knowledge, advice and for his friendly nature. We go to Venice most years and like to try different hotels in each of the Sestieri but would now have no hesitation in returning to The Wildner for a festive occasion such as NYE or Redentore and even if we staying in Cannaregio we would make a trip down for dinner one night. Arrivederci Hotel Wildner

Great location for a decent price but building has no elevators and our hotel room was on the top floor so it was a bit of exercise going back and forth to the room. The only issue I really had was with the safe; it was not bolted down. Bathroom looks like it was recently renovated and bed was conformable. Breakfast was typical in Italy. They are also able to hold your luggage after checkout for free.

Totally false advertising on the Hotel Wildner. They had no elevator and our room was several stories walk up, with plywood walls. Room had tacky plastic lamps and was utterly tasteless. Management fought us VERY hard In an attempt to force us to stay for the full several days. We of course paid for the first night. We moved to the Hotel Londra Palace a few doors away, which is truly a top luxury hotel. I WOULD NEVER EVER STAY ANOTHER NIGHT at the WILDNER. Our stay was a couple of years ago, but it only just struck me that I should warn others against the Wildner on Trip Advisor. Unless the management has changed and a several million dollar renovation has occurred, you would be well advised to stay clear of the Wildner.

Stayed here after a bit of research. What a wonderful find. Close to all the main attractions. Water taxi stop at the door. Helpful staff who went out of their way to assist. Had a room at the rear and was a tight on space but was adequate. Breakfast was typical continental fare but was fresh and tasty. If I stayed again I gladly pay for an upgrade to a canal view.

Wonderful Breakfast every morning Cleaning room For youngers tourists give higher floor No elevator! But no problem They have a porter help you ! Location view Very beautiful super view! Restaurants bar and coffee just near here! If you want to go to airport very easy !!

This was a perfect location for a quick trip to Venice. Easy to access from water taxi and within a five minute walk of San Marco and the must-see sites. Rooms were clean and great views of the lagoon. No lift, but you know that going in and it's not a big deal.
