we had a room upgrade due to building work, which was very noisy. The sitting area was used for the well set out breakfast each morning. The bed was low but comfortable. The rooms were on the dark side but who wouldn't love a room opening up on to the canals. Great to be able to pull into reception in... More

After a med cruise, we spent 5 nights at the IQs Charming House...what an absolute gem, talk about feeling like you have discovered a well-kept secret! Taking a water taxi to the hotel's James Bond style reception area was fabulous, and it set the tone for a wonderful stay. The breakfast delivered daily to our room was such a romantic... More

I recently stayed here for two nights on my own as a small addition to my Italy trip. Sophie was the most attentive person and so welcoming. I absolutely loved the place, the romantic, dark furnishings, the fact the vaporetto comes right to the reception, the delicious breakfast delivered to your room even down to the scent of the soap!...

Very accommodating staff. Nice room. Direct experience of gondolieri passing by. Small but efficient bathroom. Breakfast is being brought into the room. I loved the place. Like most of Venice, it comes at a high price of course.

My wife and I stayed here for one night and loved the place. We arrived by water taxi and the warm welcome given by the receptionist (Leonard?) set the tone for our stay. He was obviously proud of the dwelling and was very thorough in his description of all the amenities in the room. Equally charming was the lovely lady... More

What a great choice - from the water taxi station pick up and departure and throughout we felt as though we were part of the Venice life. The hotel was clean, well equipped and conveniently located. Staff, Caterina and Erica, really looked after everything for us. The novelty of having breakfast served in the room was OK but would get... More

Perfect! The water taxi from the airport is well worth the expense: a glorious way to approach the city and shimmy through the warren of canals, gliding up to the hotel's picturesque little waterside entranceway. If you've ever harboured secret James Bond aspirations, this is your moment. Caterina is a brilliant hostess, the charming in charming house and the IQ... More

Catarina is a lovely host and made us feel so welcome. Thoroughly recommend having her organise the water taxi as it made it effortless. Rather special having your own bridge, windows onto the canal & breakfast delivered every morning but Room 3 (although spacious) is very dark and proper lighting would make the stay so much more pleasurable.
