This hotel is quite lovely and is located on the Grand Canal, a stones throw from a water taxi landing. On the positive side, our room was spacious, nicely appointed with wonderful towels and toiletries. We slept well and enjoyed the view of the canal from our room. There is a gathering area on the second floor that is pleasant... More

I haven't even considered writing a review on TripAdvisor for this hotel, but I was so shocked when I received their email asking me to do so, that in the end I think its really the best thing to do. Back in July I booked a room for a couple of nights in November. Unfortunately, due to a very serious... More

Booked a run of house room, cost AU254 per night. Were put in the attic - literally! Up a flight of narrow stairs in roof space, no windows, aircon didn't work. Could not stand up in shower or most areas of room, as ceilings were 4ft to 5ft high - this is the absolute truth! Only one small area of... More

We stayed here during our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful and our room was amazing with a view of the Grand Canal. The hotel staff was hit or miss with their hospitality. But as you'll find in Venice, the people aren't as nice as other areas of Italy. And everyone else had bent over backwards for us on the trip... More

Hotel very well maintained and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. I'd stay there again. Book a room overloooking the grand canal if you can, its worth the extra. Location means the whole of venice is within walking distance.

Our Oct trip was both business and pleasure. The location on the Grand Canal was just right. Away from the congested areas, but a short walk to everything. Staff was attentive and concerned about the quality of our 3 day experience. A good value.

Many people have said on here about the price of the hotel in comparison to the quality... news flash, Venice is not cheap! I actually thought for the price of this hotel it was worth every penny. Perfect location, on the Grand canal, 5 minute walk to the Rialto bridge and 10 minute to San Marco. It has a very... More

At this price I expected better. It was a basically average hotel, but our bill came to over 250 euro/night. And they have the nerve to charge and extra 10 euro for unreliable wifi. Room and bathroom were clean, bed comfortable (once we got additional pillows). Linens and towels were soft and clean. Toiletries were pretty basic. Good AC and... More

We recently stayed for three nights in September 2014. Upon arrival the desk man told us the category of room we booked was clearly described on the web site. When my wife asked if he was trying to warn us that we booked a terrible room, he reiterated that this was the category we had booked. He was not welcoming... More

A palazzo facing the Grand Canal, conveniently located and easy to get to both by public water service and private water taxi thanks to its own jetty. If you are fit and without any heavy luggage enjoy the walk from the Station and keep as a reference point Ca' Pesaro Museum, which is well sign posted. We were offered a... More
