Recent guest reviews

This hotel was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The hotel offered us a room upgrade when we arrived as there were no canal view rooms left. The breakfast was the best I have had in a very long time. Rooms are very comfortable. And we the spa was also very good.

From the moment of arrival to check out this hotel delivered impeccable service, attentive staff and beautiful elegant accommodation. We had two adjoining rooms, fabulously decorated and every detail thought through. The breakfasts were incredible. We ate in at the restaurant one night and enjoyed a wonderful meal overlooking the grand canal with full silver service and superb food. The location is excellent for accessing the main attractions and also the water bus, taxis and gondolas. Thank you everyone at the Gritti Palace for making our family break perfect.

Its one of the most amazing and warm hotel i have visited! The whole atmosphere and the hotel team made our experience unforgettable! Felt in love with every single detail of its luxury. The location is just perfect and wouldn’t recommend other hotel in Venice!

We stayed here for 4 nights in November to celebrate my 50th birthday - what sheer heaven! From arriving by water taxi at the front of the hotel, we were whisked straight in and welcomed beautifully by everyone. The whole downstairs smells of Aqua di Parma (its their choice of complementary toiletries in your room), and check in was very quick and easy. Our room 311 was a delight - decorated in silk damask walls, a large window overlooking the Grand Canal, and a huge bath in the room - such decadence! A bottle of prosecco on ice was waiting for us in our room. I had the best facial I've ever experienced in their spa the afternoon we arrived - highly recommended. The following day, which was my birthday, when we arrived back to our room, there were a dozen red roses as a gift from the Gritti team - what a lovely touch. We had dinner with my brother and his wife that evening. Delicious food, expertly served and amazing wine. This hotel is absolutely stunning, the staff are truly wonderful - we are already planning our next trip. Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

Gritti is as good as it gets! Beautiful,stylish and elegant, all the very best attributes of Italy in one stunning location. Conviently placed for central Venice this wonderful Hotel has it all, a former palace bought tastefully up to date. Sumptuous and luxurious ,-as a guest you are made to feel very special by Pedro and his staff , nothing is too much trouble. All this is done with an easy charm ,not forced or false. Many of the staff have been there for years and it all clicks into place like a well oiled machine. Rooms are well appointed with great bathrooms ,lashings of beautiful marble. Breakfast is tremendous lovely fruit, pastries, hams,cheeses, and great cooked options too. Five stars are not sufficient for this hotel -outstanding. Hope to be back,thank you!

Thank you Gritti Palace for making our first visit to Venice unforgettable. From arriving by water taxis we were treated as old friends. We appreciated the upgrade and were blown away by our junior suite. Everything about this hotel exceeds expectations. It's the small touches that make this hotel stand out. ie Mouthwash in bathroom. On the Grand Canal we spent time drinking cocktails watching Venetian life pass by. A short walk past designer boutiques and you are in St Mark's Square. We loved getting lost and discovering Venice. The hotel was always easy to navigate back to. Being a smaller hotel meant personal attention was impeccable. We have promised ourselves a return visit. Thank you

We ventured her because we were expecting best. You really can not fault the location, canal views of course. We were surprised the waiter got the order wrong after all, you are charged forteen euros each just to sit down. Overall the veggie food was ok but as I am paying over the odds anyway for my lunch I feel cheated by the extra price I was charged just to sit in the restaurant, I did not encounter that anywhere else in Venice

fantastic olde world atmosphere , the rooms have beautiful detailing in traditional style, and quite large for this part of Venice-right overlooking the grand canal, the breakfast area has a fantastic view of the grand canal also, if you want to be near the heart of the city-, this is the best hotel, it is superb and encompasses tradition.

Our room in the Gritti Palace had a world class view overlooking the Grand Canal. It was Walking Distance to all Venice sites, piazza’s, gondolas, good restaurants and modern shopping venues. The staff was excellent and the hotel’s feature restaurant was a special treat — excellent food and first class service.

Stayed over two nights last week for a mid-week break before visiting Vicenza. The property lived up to our expectations. We were met in the arrival hall and fast tracked to the pier at the airport and then whisked to the property in 30 mins, highly recommend this service. We arrive before midnight and checked in by the concierge, assuming the receptionist were occupied. The suite we had was beautifully renovated in 2013 and was very quiet. The highlight of our stay was the breakfast served on the terrace, the waiters don't encourage to eat outside, but you are more than welcome to enjoy coffee or a glass of Prosecco. The temporary Ponte Salute was very handy for us too! Grazie Mille Gritti!
