Had a great 3 night stay in a very comfortable room of this lovely hotel. There is a lively market area 2-3 mins walk and so was water taxi stop Cadoro. Location is central and walking distance to most sights.
Complimentary breakfast was very basic and could be improved.
Would love to stay there again and highly recommend the same.
Just got back from Venice and could not recommended this hotel anymore highly. The hotel is in perfect location in my eyes, close enough for a small wander to anywhere.
Beautiful hotel with authentic rooms with modern amenities. Great value for money.
The hotel is not right on the Grand Canal or around the major touristy areas. It is a little ways away. Having said that, it's a short 10 minute walk to the train station and a 2 minute walk from the orange line water bus & water taxi station.
The hotel itself was super clean and new. The amenities were super nice.
The only downside was that the concierge staff were less than helpful to give us specific directions or help on getting to and from places on multiple occasions.
"Great hotel within walking distance of train statn"
Wonderful front desk staff who were willing to help us with everything. Our first night was a late arrival so our room was a little too small, but they switched it the next morning and were very accommodating.
Breakfast is filling and available for free.
"Lovely hotel in a quiet area outside busy centre"
A great stay. Staff are fabulous and nothing was too much trouble for us, and as I am coeliac and dairy intollerant I was concerned that breakfast was going to be an issue but it wasn't. Would advise that when asking at Venice airport for the hotel they did not know it so suggest a watertaxi / laliguna waterbus which you walk to at the waters edge, not the bus into Venice and then the Waterbus, because it drops you at the wrong place. You need to go to St Alvise if you use public transport and it is a short walk from there. Watertaxi takes you straight to the door.
I only stayed for one night so I don't have too much to say about the hotel. The location was perfect for me because I was able to walk with my luggage to the hotel from the train station (from Florence) and to the bus station (for the airport). The hotel was nice- ornate Venice style but just what I wanted. The hotel staff was nice- they recommended which restaurants to visit and they were great!! The bed is hard but it was the same in Florence, it must be an Italian thing! The hotel is clean and the rooms are a good size, mine faced the canal which was very nice. The shower was tricky because the water temperature would fluctuate but it was manageable. The bottom line is that I would highly recommend it because of the location- walking distance to San Marco square and close to train and bus station. Oh and the best thing we did- walked to San Marco square (~40 min because it is confusing) and at sunset took a gondola ride back...loved it!!
Historical building , few suggestions to further improve services,
Better air conditioning
More lighting arrangements ( v dim , few bulbs fused wasn't replaced)
Tea arrangements in the room ( include kettle cups )
Proper dust cleaning
Jacuzzi to be in working condition
For visitors arriving by rail or by bus, Cannaregio is Venice’s front door and the start of the Grand Canal. It sees a lot of passing traffic in terms of canal boats and visitors en route to San Marco, but is otherwise quieter and less touristy than central Venice. Points of interest include the Ghetto area (the original Jewish enclave) with its museums and the majestic Ca d’Oro palace, one of the iconic buildings of the Grand Canal.
