Location (quiet away from the tourist throng), large room (we booked a suite) and the view across to the Piazza San Marco. The hotel run a free shuttle which runs between the Palladio and the Palazzo Bauer Hotel. Price. Then again, Venice is expensive all round.
The architecture and the friendly staff The spa seems to be a myth. Dont go on the hotel organised tour of glass 'factory' at Murano, instead visit yourself with 42 public boat.
The best personal service I have ever encountered -wonderfully helpful staff No
The Garden view The room service should be avaliable until the mid night
Good hotel, far from the attraction but there are shuttle for the other side where the attractions are. The shuttle every 30 mins until midnight The staff are professional but rude somtimes.
The hotel was clean and beautiful. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable of their town so they could tell us the best places to go. We had dinner 1 night in the hotel dining room and it ws one of the best meals we had on our trip. Our stay was totally enjoyable.
Great location on an island opposite St Mark's Square (free shuttle to St Mark's Square takes 2 min), very quiet yet an ideal starting point for walks in the city or trips to other islands, great views, rooms very clean and in excellent condition, very attentive staff, charming garden
The location Lighting in the room was very poor. One could not read. The customer service was terrible
The breakfast was wonderful and the service was very personal - the concierge personally showed us up to our room, which made us feel like we were the only ones staying the hotel. The service was also very prompt - we left the room in the evening for 5 minutes and came back to find our bed already turned down for us. The location was excellent, too. Although you must get on the vaporetto to reach tourist attractions, the island of Giudecca is so quiet and peaceful - it is well worth hopping on the vaporetto a few stops - plus the station is literally right in front of the hotel.
Breakfast was excellent.The courtesy boat to and from Venice was a great bonus.Staff were very pleasant and helpful
Friendly & Helpfully Staff.Hotel Building with a difference. The Gardens & Peace & Quiet Good transport links & so close to all the amenities. Private boat across the Canal Some of the Carpets appeared old and sad. On arrival from the Airport not be able to find the gate to the private boat at the sister Baur Hotel. Had to go by water bus which went all around the canal before recching the opposite bank.
The most elegant hotel we ever stayed at. Authentic renovation, beautiful decoration, attention to detail, exquisite breakfast. Truly a 5 star establishment. N/a
Absolut extraordinary hotel . It is a must if you se Venice . Great Location, and the building is in great condition . 10+ for this hotel . I would recommned this to any one . Great Experience
A beautiful, luxury villa in a perfect location in Venice. The upgraded room was such a treat and the morning concierge was so helpful. Unfortunately, we didn't realize the drain in the jaccuzi tub didn't work and by the time they fixed it, it was too late to use
,staff,adjacent vaporetto stop,location,style. poor lighting inroom
Beautiful building in a very good location. Fairly quiet, but reasonably close to centre. Very friendly and helpful staff, and a well designed triple room which afforded more privacy than many.
The position of the hotel beside the grand canal. The decoration of the entrance hall. Comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Staff very friendly and helpful. The bedroom was rather small for the price of the room and windows looked out on very narrow canal. Prices are expensive in Italy but we felt that the hotel we stayed in in Bologna was much better value for money.
location right on the Grand Canal by vaporetto stop and traghetto crossing the price of the room was very high for its size and outlook
Everything - Terrace on the Grand Canal
Perfect access to Ca Rezzonico vaparetto stop- about 25 metres from hotel door. Elegant beautifully presented rooms in a well refurbished Palazzo. where everything was new and well appointed. The internet acces was out of order for 3 days during stay. The rooms had very high-tec features and no instructions provided, e,g, jacuzzi in bath and room temperature control.
Everything. The room was exceptional in every way. The hotel itself was truly amazing and in a fabulous location. You werent too close to the tourist areas in that you had the peace and quiet, but in easy walking distance to the tourist areas - I truly had the best of both worlds. The staff were brilliant also.
The location on the Grand Canal was very nice. They had a beautiful patio there. There was also a waterbus stop just at the hotel. The room for which I paid over $400 per night was a small cell with a very high window which was useless. Told me this was their "standard room." For 50 Euro more they found me a "superior room". It had a window, but looked over a flat rooftop into a wall. Find out about the room before booking.
Rolige omgivelser lidt væk fra den almindelige turisttrafik og dog tæt på alt. Generelt levede hotellet fuldt ud op til vores forventninger. Det kunne være rart, hvis man kunne låne et par gummistøvler.
Den gode beliggenhed, det veludstyrede værelse og det venlige personale Nej
Rigtig god, meget central, men rolig beliggenhed. meget imødekommende og venligt personale. Komfortabelt værelse (efter at have fået byttet det først anviste som var mindre og hvor især badeværelset var meget småt) Måske lidt mere finish til morgenbordet, lunt brød, æg+bacon og lign.
Vi var så heldige at få værelset med tagterrasse. Hvis jeg booker på hotellet igen, vil jeg bede om netop det værelse.
valuta for pengene varme på værelserne......
Suveræn beliggenhed og rigtig dejlig have man kunne sætte sit ned i med fine havemøbler i form af sofaer med borde m.m. nej
Centralt / rolige omgivelse / ingen myg ( Venedig ) / morgenmad i gårdhave / det var pengene værd
Vi fik en fint rummeligt og lyst værelse med stort vindue ud til en hyggelig gade. Badeværelset var stort, pænt og lyst - alt i alt en rigtig fint værelse, og godt til prisen. Også en rigtig god beliggenhed hvis man vil væk fra de mest turistede gade og alligevel bo centralt. Jeg savnede frisk frugt og lidt grovere brød til morgenmaden, men det er vel ret typisk og forventeligt
We loved everything about this aristocratic hotel. It was so photogenic, quiet, and beautiful. We found our room to be comfortable and lovely. The breakfast was in a elegant room full of antiques, The food was very good with great coffee, juices, fruits, breads, eggs, etc. The location was away from the mobs of tourists but easy to get to,and it was easy to walk or take the vaporetto to other parts of Venice. We arrived by the Alilaguna at the Zattere stop. It was then a very easy walk of about five minutes to the hotel. We departed by water taxi from the front courtyard. The Accademia area around this hotel is interesting and there is so much to explore. It is scenic and much quieter than the St. Mark's area. We loved everything!!!
The staff was very friendly and informative. They quickly tell you about the facilities of the hotel as soon as you check in, and give you a map of the city identifying the key lamdmarks and places to visit. The ambience of the hotel was excellent! Directions to the hotel from the nearest drop-off point, which is the Accademia.
location Room was too cluttered with furniture. Hotel wants to sell everyting (eg wifi access)
Excellent staff and location, nice and quiet. Short walk to major attractions. Lovely garden and courtyards, with its own boat docking, (excellent for taxis). Views of canal from room. Beautiful dining room and lounge, very Venetian. check out time of 12 which is nice. will use again. no lift, so stairs only, but porter carries your luggage
I liked the location on the Zattere very much and the traditional atmosphere of a small elegant Venetian hotel. There was nothing I disliked during my week-long stay.
The room was beautiful, breakfast great,location fantastico! Climbing three flights of stairs
Beautiful location, good staff, very nice hotel Very poor hair-drier
Friendly and professional staff, quiet and comfortable room, very clean, hearty breakfast. This hotel is located in Dorsoduro, which is quieter and less crowded than the San Marcos or Rialto areas, where most of the attractions are. However, an able bodied person can easily walk to these areas and can even walk to the train station if needed. Plus, there are many good restaurants nearby. This hotel appears to be well managed as evidenced by its well disciplined staff and orderly facilities. Very glad I stayed here. Nothing.
Pensione Accademia meet all my expectations. The smallish single that I had was comfortable, well appointed and had everything that I needed after the willing staff made some requested furnishing changes. The staff went out of their way to please and make me comfortable. The pensione is located nicely on a smaller canal just before it runs into the Grand Canal. There was some disturbing early morning horn blowing from barges passing by my window turning into the Grand Canal from this smaller canal. Otherwise my room was mostly quiet except for some room to room sound. The wall separating my room from the next could be better sound proofed.
The facility was very clean and confortable. Great location near major tourist attractions (15 min walk from Piazza San Marco) The staff was very friendly and helpful with any queries we had. They booked a baroque concert for one night and informed us about discounts in a couple local restaurant/bar. The breakfasts were very good with a variety of options for everyone's taste... and excellent price considering that it was right during the Carnival and for Valentine's day weekend. We had a lovely stay and will definitely recommend this hotel.
The Hotel was great! Nice design, welcoming personell, excellent brekfast!
Excellent location in a residential neighbourhood, very quiet, yet very close to the main islands of Venice - close to the vaporetto stop which will take you to San Marco Square in less than 10 minutes. Clean rooms of decent size, staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is minimal
The helpfulness of staff, buffet breakfast. I didn't like the way their internet was set up.
Position and staff Would have liked free wifi in the rooms as well as lobby.
fair price and comfortable facilities
Dispite previous reviews, I emailed the Hotel and was given the easiest directions to follow, perhaps others should have tried this. Breakfast was good, always topped up, great mini bar at fanastic prices, room was fabulously clean and well maintained, staff were both helpful and informative,even to the point of booking restaurants (a must for the most popular), even on departure, due to an early start the night porter made tea and coffee before we left. You may read other reviews slating the TV channels, IE no english channels, but if you are intending staying in your room in Venice to watch the TV, then stay at home, because you are wasting your money. If you are concerned about the location, as I was, don't be, its only 4 stops from St Marcs, and 25 mins from Pizza de Roma and surrounded by 3 or 4 great value resturants. Highly recommended. Would I stay there again??? Most definitely!!!!! Absolutely nothing to complain about, fabulous from start to finish.
feel at home
Wooden beams in the room made it very homely. Guidecca is easy to get to from the main island and away from the hustle and bustle. also there is a very nice restaurant on the way to the Palanca vaporetto stop. The staff are very nice there.
good price quality ratio, nice and quiet away from the crowd, yet still close to Venice itself. Good breakfast service, very friendly and helpful staff. Nice room with view on canal. Close to ferry to bring you to Venice Shower was rather tiny. Ceiling of lobby was very low so when you're tall you cannot walk straight up.
I enjoyed the location, and the staff was very accommodating. The room was spotlessly clean and (with the exception of the night and morning noises from the adjacent room's toilet) it was very quiet and peaceful. The window has a wonderful view of the canal. I was warned that Giudecca (the island) was not a good place to stay because it takes so long to travel to Venice, but that's simply not true. I never had to wait for more than five minutes for a trip to Venice. I should also mention that the price of a room at the Hotel Giudecca was substantially lower than rooms on Venice. The island itself is quieter and calmer. The hotel's breakfast was very good and the service was excellent. Wifi only works in the lobby. What traveler wants to be limited to that tiny area? Who wants to conduct private business like banking online while surrounded by strangers? It's an unsafe and inconvenient practice. And even there the reception for the wifi was spotty. I would suggest better wifi for the modern traveler. This might be a cost-prohibitive "fix" to make, but if-- like I do-- you have business to transact online while on vacation, you'll want better connectivity to the internet. My single room was organized so that the head of my bed was up against a wall with a door to the next room, and it was pretty clear that right on the other side was a bathroom as I could hear the occupant's "rituals." In spite of these issues, though, the hotel is an excellent value.
Good location, friendly staff. I would recommend this hotel.
Fantastic location - nice area - good restaurant - friendly staff.
Location excellent: easy to get to and from hotel and the restaurant on the canal is a wonderful place to eat as you can watch all the activities on the water. As the sun goes down it becomes even more spectacular. Good vegetarian food available. Great pastry chef, I recommend the biscotti.
Badeværelset, aircondition. Ingen problemer eller personale der blandet sig unødigt. Mulighed for at lade bagagen stå efter endt ophold. En noget venliger modtagelse, hun virkede uvelkommende. Mere skabsplads.
Hotellets beliggenhed er rigtig god i forhold til banegården. Morgenmaden er kedelig.
OK hotel til prisen. God beliggenhed.
The lobby and breakfast area needs to be renovated. Hotel staff informed us that it was a non smoking hotel however we could smell smoke in our room and in the hallways.
The location of the hotel was fantastic - away from tourist hell but near enough to walk anywhere. The rooms were incredibly clean and although basic in style - the towel rail was a god send for wet clothes and shoes! The hotel is very basic. It is clean and the rooms themselves were well decorated but it did feel like we stayed in a glorified hostel.
helpfull staff, decent location in a quite area close to the Santa Lucia train station, nice rooms Nothing
The hotel is close to local bars so it's perfect for those wanting to go out and live Venice's nightlife. And it's in a quiet area at the same time.We really enjoyed our stay and staff was helpful. No complaints at all.
The hotel is very nice and clean. Good location, near the bus station and vaporetto-station.
Breakfast was good. No plugs in washbasin and bidet. Communal bathroom run-down.
Coldness. No heating facilities at all.
Good location, friendly staff. Breakfast is very basic, no cereals etc. only bread rolls, wrapped filled croissons and spreads. One lady is catering to all guests (and doing a good job). Rooms should have safes (these days electronic safes are less then 100 euro)
Good location, most of the important buildings of venice in the imediate vincinity. Leakage in the roof of the hotelroom. The sheets where not refreshed. Dusty room. Dirty shower.
Nice location and nice breakfast No tv in room
The atmosphere of the hotel was excelent. Personell was very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was very poor.
Nothing. That was terrible experience. We travelig a lot about everywhere and that was one from the worst!!!! Specially price and pictures sugest good quality room and service. Manager did not care about my request, about quiet room and gave us only room with viev on noize restaurant!!!! And did not wonted to hange it...
The room was very basic but adequate for a one night stay, the beds were comfortable, and the price was right, it was a little difficult to find. They need to uimprove on the names of people, they had ours with my first two names, and no surname, we managed to find our own name on the list, and we spoke to someone else who had the same trouble
Excellent location, only 10 mins from St Marks Square (1 stop on water bus). Great breakfast.Well worth the money
Staffs are good and they are so kind. The place of hotel was good for us we use boat for transportation to the hotel and the boat was good for us to see the Venice night. Moreover breakfast was good We liked it. On the other hand, in the room there was so humid and it was cold. There aren't bathroom and toilet in the room.
Very friendly and efficient staff. Very beautiful building. Easy walking distance to city centre. Rather too warm in the bedrooms.
There was a nice àuthententic descrete professional ` feel` about the hotel although a bit dusty. Fresh flowers everyday in the reception and just one single smile from the personal would have made a great difference. The entrance is dark and dusty with old Londoner chairs, so old you can not sit in them. The breakfast was very poor, bread that was dry (one each´) and on good days a crossaint to share, no fresch fruit, no nice new baked bread, no cheese. We chose to go to a bar afterwards to have a real breakfast. In our hotel room (very very small on top floor) we did not have pressure on the shower water two days. No desk in room so you could do a bit of work. The hotel entrance space itself could be made so nice dooing a few things like a little more lighting in ceiling, new furniture, fresch flowers. Main space at top floor was nice to look at although tapestry (fake) frescoes in cieling. Nice window to the canal - this could have been a nice place in the evenings to sit and have a chat if it was furnished in a lees monumental and more comfortable way. It was like the hotel was something once but they have fogotten to be present in a modern world.
The small hotel nothing
The staff's friendliness and the location. Wireless internet would be nice. I would have liked more selection at breakfast.
Very high quality, great reception + staff Once in the hotel - which is appropriately priced, everything was too expensive. For example tea & coffee, drinks food. It simply does not represent value for money and these prices reflected the hotel's expectation that if we paid a lot for the room, we'd pay a lot for basic food & drink. Because of this, we won't return.
The hotel is beautiful and very nice No elevator
The hotel location provided nearby access to a part of Venice with a residential feeling while still being fairly close to the vaporetto stop. Way overpriced-- even for Venice. Everything was skimpy and shabby from the breakfast to the towels to the lobby furniture. Over a 5 week trip covering 12 cities in Europe, this was the highest price we paid for a hotel and yet it was the shabbiest hotel with the fewest amenities.
Position was very good. Room was acceptable. Very rude and unfriendly staff. Dirty bathroom. Dirty reception areas. Dangerous (and dirty) steps to first floor.
room too small for two people.
Friendliness of staff, room and facilities No
very conveniently located. helpful, efficient staff. big room, very nicely appointed. the price--our frinds stayed at anotherhotel in the sme area that was very nice but much less expensive
Staff very helpfull, room large and clean, design and confortable, very quiet,ideal location, pleased by the welcome ( bottle of Chamapagne!)
Reception staff very helpful. The breakfasts were very good and having breakfast al fresco was very pleasant. The hotel has been open for 7 years and is at an age when some of the fittings and decorations need renewal or attention. The air conditioning in our room was a little noisy, one of the bathroom lights did not work, and the much-vaunted 'sunrise alarm clock' did not illuminate. There was a 'funny' with the lift doors which meant that sometimes it got stuck on one of the floors, resulting in some long waits. On one day the chambermaid did not leave spare toilet paper.
The hotel staff could not be more helpful with any questions I had about Venice. The location is excellent for access to the shopping areas and St Marks square just over the Accademia bridge. The rooms did not have tea making facilities but this did not detract from our stay.
The location is wonderful. Heating system and air conditioning are not interchangable. Seriously uncomfortable.
great location - near the main attractions but quiet rooms very dark although very comfortable.
A stylish and comfortable hotel well located but away from the crowds - helpful staff - good breakfasts Nothing!
Attentive and helpful staff. Good breakfast. Room next to lift and some noise when in use. General room lighting a bit low.
beatiful art deco style with spa bath and very convenient to water vaporettos -not cheap but very luxurious
The staff make this hotel exceptional. They are friendly, knowledgable, and focused on making your stay enjoyable. The breakfast buffet and evening happy hour were exceptional. You may think being a distance from Piazza San Marco is a negative. Just the opposite. The location is perfect. Away from the very crowded center yet close enough to easily (for Venice) get to all the must-see areas. Highly recommend this hotel. There was nothing we did not like.
Friendly, helpful staff and elegant surroundings
Superb hotel, helpful staff, excellent breakfasts, two very good restaurants owned by hotel just up the road, canals all arounbd; we had a great stay here and would recomend the hotel Quite honestly, for us, it was faultless.
We chose a 2 double bed
Nice small hotel in the quite part of Venecia. Very nice rooms and willing personnel.
Easy access to the Grand Canal, and other attractions in the Venice area. Most specifically Natalie who was very helpful and insightful.
nice hotel, good location.
location, staff, room, excellent hotel!
Hotel staff assistance to plan the tour.
Breakfast is good. Staff is good. It is clean. The hotel is difficult to find. My room is on an attic which is too tiny to turn around, but the it is cheap (90 euro/night)
Det var et virkelig hyggeligt hotel med den bedste beliggenhed i stille og rolige omgivelser. Personalet var utrolig hjælpsomme og meget venlige - vi vender klart tilbage. Egentlig ikke - dog kunne morgenmaden godt friskes lidt op med f.eks. noget frisk frugt og rigtig ost.
The location of the hotel was very good. It is located on a quiet canal not far from the Academia Bridge and a 10 minute walk from the bus station. The staff were very nice and most spoke English. The Hotel has an old world feel to it. It was clean and the room was spacious with a lovely view of the garden out back. We had a private bathroom that was very acceptable. Overall the hotel has a bit of a 'worn' feeling to it, and the beds were O.K. but not that comfortable. For the price, I think that breakfast should have been included.
