We are group of three couples who recently stayed at Palazzo Giovanelli for 3 nights. A week before we arrived at Palazzo Giovanelli i noticed that the full amount of over $4,000 had been deducted from my credit card, I was assured when they took my credit card details that this was to hold the rooms, and not to deduct...

The room was clean, hotel conveniently located to good restaurants, and with its own dock for a water taxi. The bathroom had a weird window where you could watch your spouse shower while lying in bed. I guess that could be fun for honeymooners?

Just stayed at the palazzo giovanelli for 3 nights in a dormer room and other than the ceiling being a little low for my other half, the room was lovely. The hotel was beautiful, a real mixture of both Classic Venice but modern too. Great location right on the grand canal, the only criticism would be, when you get off... More

We only stayed for one night, but it is charming & close to everything. Nice size rooms for downtown Venice They have a small outside patio. Amazing breakfast included with your stay. No pool, but we knew it going in.

Hotel is in a beautiful building right on the Grand Canal. Transport is very easy by water taxi or Vaporetto and there is so stop next to the hotel. Our room was small but very clean & stylish. Only minor item was that the breakfast selection was very small for the price of the hotel. And my husband said the... More

I booked this hotel back in November 2013 for July 2014, based on trip advisor ratings. My room was reserved with a credit card. A week before I was leaving, I received an email stating there was a problem with my reservation and I needed to resubmit my credit card information. I cooperated and received another confirmation of my room.... More

Railbookers arranged our stay at this marvelous hotel during our rail travel in Italy. My family and I loved it! The hotel is beautiful and charming. The front desk and service staff were friendly and gracious. We were greeted with smiles and “buon giorno” every morning. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. The hotel is accessible by water with its own... More

Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli was convenient to get to from the airport and very close to all the sights in Venice. It is directly accessible to a Vaparetto stop, which made it very easy to get around. It is located beside Church of San Stae, a beautiful church founded at the beginning of the 11th century and reconstructed in the 17th... More

This is a $400/night hotel. I would have rated it higher except for 2 issues. First, at this price, I expect free wifi at least in the lobby. They charged for it everywhere. Second, the attitude of a couple of the fellows at the desk was impatient and a bit condescending when we asked for directions and restaurant recommendations. Also,... More
