It was our first trip to Venice and we stayed in Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli for 4 nights. We had booked the standard double room and were disappointed to see how small it was when we got there. There was hardly any space to move in the room and the decor was not as impressive as compared to the pictures on... More

While the room we were given was ok (we actually had to call the front desk at one time and request them to ask the guests staying above us to quieten down), the front desk staff had this really dismissive, blasé attitude.. the only saving grace were the bellboy and the waitstaff at breakfast.... they were very nice.... we will...

This is a wonderful hotel. It is conveniently located a 2 minute walk from a vaporetto stop and is a pleasant walk from most central Venice sights. I cannot stress how important this is, when in Venice as it dramatically improves your enjoyment and reduces your costs. (Hint, when you disembark at Stan Stae vaporetto stop on Line 1, go... More

We stayed in this hotel in the end of February beginning of March. The hotel is excellent. Great facilities, great location, great staff and great breakfast. Couldn't ask more for the price. The room was light and with a small lovely balcony facing the rear courtyard. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Venice and will... More

The hotel is very beautiful. The front door overlooks the grand canal. The rooms are really clean, spacious, and beautiful. The staff is extremely kind and helpful. Met some of the kindest staff here. The location is very quiet because you are away from the main tourist attraction areas. Its not difficult to get to the main tourist areas via... More

This place was excellent and has honestly left some long lasting memories with us! First we were upgraded on arrival, followed some pretty yummy cocktails at the bar. We wouldn't have seen what we did if we hadn't of stayed in such a great location, after all, everywhere is within walking distance, and getting lost is what you sign up... More

After our Hotel in Zurich anything was a let down BUT this Hotel is good. It's close to Santa Lucia Station at San Stae and you could easily walk there from the Station. It's not far to get to the Rialto Bridge or even Piazza San Marco - you can find your way easily. The room we had was relatively... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in Venice and loved it. The hotel is wonderful and the staff was so hopefully with places to eat, what to do and so on. We would defiantly stay again! We did have to take many water ferries as we were in a great location to everything.

We stayed in Palazzo Giovanelli for four nights in January 2015. This was our third visit to Venice and probably the best. Our room was immaculate, small but adequate and the bathroom was splendid. We did have a window but it opened onto a scruffy light well that was not very light! The room was very hot but this was... More
