This guy who I thought was just the rude front desk man was actually the hotel manager and potentially the owner too. It's no wonder we got upsold into the dormer room which is just a fancy word for attic. We complained to no avail, this douche canoe didn't help us and kept making excuses on how good of a... More

The three of us (oap Dad, housewife superstar me and 19 year old daughter) stayed here in two rooms, not adjoining but very close to each other, and had a wonderful stay. The reception staff were very helpful and informative, and the other staff nice and friendly. The position of the hotel was wonderful, right on the Grand Canal and... More

We recently stayed here on our trip to Italy. We are a family of 4 so we booked 2 rooms. Rooms were very small, not next to each other. Bathroom had mold in it. Found staff very stand offish. Map given by hotel is useless. While the location with the vaporetto stop right there was good, it was too far... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli on the recommendation of our travel agent. From the moment we stepped onto the private landing to the hotel we were made to feel welcome. Taken up to our wonderful room overlooking the Grande Canal we were greeted with a welcome bottle of champagne. Great start. This hotel is... More

nice clean hote, recpetion staff friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice but a but small, however good size bathroom. Handy for the San stae water bus stop on the grand canal, its a bit further away from the hustle and bustle which was nice, 15 mins to st marks square on foot. i would definatly stay here again

Birthday surpirse for my better half in March 2014. Beautiful hotel, excellent location for exploring Venice overall. Fantastic arrival via speedboat from the airport to the hotel jetty on the Gran Canal. Very helpful and learned staff. Breakfast plentiful and of good quality. Rooms very nice and cleaned regularly. Plan to return as soon as possible, potentially every March?

Just returned from an excellent 2 night stay in this hotel, located right in the heart of Venice. The hotel has a lovely Reception area, bar (a little pricey, although this is to be expected for Venice) and helpful staff. The rooms are of a decent size, very clean and nicely decorated with lots of marble. Rooms overlooking the water... More

This hotel is a boutique hotel and is located on the Grand Canal at the San Stae waterbus stop. TIP TO FIND IT......When you get off the water bus, stay left and walk past the church and over the footbridge. Turn right and walk along the small canal. Turn left at the first small alleyway and turn left again into... More

Whilst touring Italy we stayed at the Hotel palazzo for two nights! I could not fault the stay! The location was fantastic- easily walkable (10 mins) from Rialto Bridge and St Marks Sq. (15 mins) yet set slightly away from the huge crowds to allow a quieter evening meal! We had one of the attic rooms which I cannot recommend... More

After a multi-day cycling tour, my wife and I decided to wrap up the trip with our final weekend in Venice. The property was nice both inside and out. Very private. A nice mix of old a new. The staff was very attentive. When we arrived, we had the pleasure of being told we had been upgraded from a Deluxe... More
