I tried to booked this hotel for my fiancé 30th birthday but was told my card wouldn’t go through. 2 weeks later I booked another hotel to then find out a week later this hotel and used my card details and tried again. I called them up and they said they were unable to give me a refund so I asked if I could stay another time as this had cost me 700 euros. They were unable to help me in anyway and was rude on the phone. They called to ask if I was coming and I said I couldn’t as I had another hotel booked in which case they would give my room to someone else. I went to see the hotel and it was very run down so would avoid this at all cost. Why go somewhere expensive for holidays and get rude staff when there are so many better places to stay!

We were a party of 9 ladies, in Venice to celebrate a 50th birthday. All the staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough to help you. They very kindly organised a birthday cake and also gave us two bottles of complimentary Prosecco! The rooms were beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. I was in room 304, which was huge. Open the shutters in the morning and you are greeted with wonderful views of the lagoon and at least a couple of times a day, you will see one of the huge cruise liners coming into port, what an amazing sight! The hotel is perfectly located, just 5 minutes’ walk from St Mark’s Square. I cannot recommend this hotel enough and would definitely stay here again.

To find a hotel like this in a place as busy and crowded as Venice is exceptional. The staff were so hospitable from the first communication on booking to our departure. The rooms are so fitting with Venice - magical and like being on a movie set with the decor matching the past. Yet clean, modern and comfortable. The bathroom was large and added to the stunning level of detail. There was a safe, and security is excellent with the lift even being key operated. The hotel is a prime location, but 10 minutes walk from the main square giving a bit more space. The directions to the hotel via waterbus from the train station and then from the main stop 1 minute away to the airport were perfect. The reception staff were so helpful. Everything in this hotel is geared to be a tribute to music, the name is very fitting. We stayed facing the courtyard - considering you will see Venice waterways all day, this is a better option as then less noise. In fact it was silent when we slept. The bed was extremely comfortable. I would love to give it 6/5 if that was possible. Would love to come back.

We had an amazing stay. We had two rooms on the 4th floor with incredible views of the water. The rooms have character. They are cousy. One them had skylights and wood everywhere. Staff were friendly, helpful, nice and most importantly very honest. I forget 2000$ cash in the safe and only realized the day after. I called them from florence and they were nice enough to check and hold it for me. Im very happy we found this hotel :)

We booked a top floor room for five nights. On our arrival the room smelled awful...liked a backed up toilet. The receptionist said it was the Lagoon. We noted that no other palce in or out of the hotel smelled foul. We were moved to a room in the annex for the night. The next morning the room we had booked continued to smell bad and we were told it was because of the air conditioning unit. Later that day we were given a third explanation for the odor...obviously, they either did not know or did not care. We elected to remain in annex for our entire stay. The room in the Annex was not as spacious as the room we booked. It was on a lower floor, it did not have cooking facilities, and it did not have a balcony, which we were particularly looking forward to using. We asked the manager for a discount since we had booked into a more expensive room (I had made the mistake of paying in full in advance). I pointed out that we were returning guests, having stayed at Tribute several times prior. He said I would have to contact the owner, which I did. The owner considered the matter until we were safely gone, then decided not to comply. Clearly, being a return customer had no impact. I would not stay at this place if it were free.

Stayed here for 3 nights in the very cold weather last week. It is a small hotel facing the lagoon The room was comfortable and warm the bathroom immaculate and had a very comfortable bed It is a small hotel with no bar or frills but amazing value for money and well situated for the airport transport and sightseeing The staff were excellent- pleasant helpful and well-informed

Brilliant place to stay for a break in Venice. You couldn’t ask for a better location. Less than a 10 minutes (stroll along the delights of the Grand Canal) from the madness of St Mark’s Square. We had room 303 which, although narrow, is beautifully presented with a nice bathroom and an amazingly comfortable bed (new we were told). The star of the show is the view. WOW! I won’t waste time explaining as I’ll do it an injustice. Go on to the hotel website and check out the live webcam. I only left it 8hrs ago and I’m already in withdrawal. A special mention for Carlo and his very team. Everyone is very friendly, make you feel incredibly welcome and are always on had with advice for food and adventures.

A Tribute to Music is a quaint hotel in an amazing location facing the canal, with a five minute walk to San Marco square. We chose to take a water taxi from the airport, and the water taxi stop is very close to the hotel (50 m). Room 401 has a terrace with a beautiful view of the canal. It is a wonderful place to sit and relax and enjoy simply being in Venice. The staff were very friendly and eager to assist. Carlo was wonderful at suggesting places to visit and dine, including the cozy Scalinetto close by. While you can have your breakfast brought to your room and enjoy it on the terrace, we went to the breakfast room each day. The breakfast server was very friendly, and her lattes and hot chocolates were wonderful. We regretted not being able to speak Italian with her, as she seemed very kind. The selection for breakfast was excellent: cold cuts, cheeses, fruits, yogurts, and a nice selection of fresh pastries. We left the key with the front desk when we left our room, but the room did have a safe for belongings (there are actually a number of keys: for the elevator, access to your floor, and your room key). You must get “buzzed in” by the front desk when entering the hotel. However, the hotel is an older building, and has issues that one might expect of an older hotel: the elevator is very compact, and only goes to the 3rd floor. Room 401 would not be a good choice if you cannot manage a flight of stairs. The mattress was quite firm, and the pillows were thinner that I am used to when travelling in North America. However, they did supply bathrobes and slippers in the room. The bathroom is nice with a claw foot bathtub, but be careful on the beautiful marble floor and the sloped ceiling with exposed wooden beams. There is no shower curtain, so showering can be a bit tricky. There were issues with the hot water and wifi that took a few hours to fix, but they were able to rectify the issues once they were able to call in the appropriate servicemen to assist. We could hear the noise from the local tourist shops/restaurants/water traffic outside even at night. I was able to sleep through the sounds, but my husband was not.

I have just spent 3 days in Venezia and stayed at this hotel, the location is great , 5 mins walk from San Marco but in a quiet area of Arsenale, Carlo was fantastic, assisting with best places to eat , what to do and see and generally very helpful. He organized a trip to Murano for us and when it came to looking after our bags etc he was very sympatico . Intend going back in 3 months time

We really enjoyed our stay at A Tribute To Music. The staff was very kind and welcoming. And they recommended many excellent restaurants and local spots to go and take beautiful pictures. Our room had a beautiful view of the lagoon and the sunsets were incredible. We loved our breakfast server so sweet and she makes the best espresso and cappuccinos. The location was excellent, 10 minute walk to San Marcos square. Lots of great restaurants nearby including one of our favorties Scalinetto recommended by Carlo.
