We stayed here during Carnivalle for 1 night and were put in the attic (pitched ceiling) with peeling wallpaper, and heat that would not shut off. The 2 males at the front desk were not helpful, uninterested and not friendly. Definitely does not deserve a 4 star rating.

First and last time at this hotel. the hotel is absolutely old and doesn't meet the 4-star standards by all means. I know in venice is quite difficult to find a good hotel with a good value for money but hey this is 2015, buildings get refurbished even in venice!

We stayed as part of a group tour. When we went to the front desk for help with heat that would not shut off, and a question abouf their long distance phone carrier, not only were we completely ignored while the two male desk personnel were standing around and started to shuffle papers around when we asked. They finally responded... More

We were pleased with the hotel and location- clean and tidy. Unfortunately our 'superior' room had twin beds for a double which the staff told us was normal! So if you want to sleep in the same bed, without them moving apart, it seems they cannot offer this here. My partner wanted to bring me on a romantic break but... More

I have stayed in fine hotels on five continents and in at least 60 countries, including L'Hotel de Crillon in Paris, the Four Seasons in Istanbul and Shanghai, Palacio Duhau in Buenos Aires, the Eastern & Oriental Hotel in Penang, and and tons of fine hotels around the USA. While I would give the room itself of the Hotel Principe... More

Staff was incredibly friendly, great view right on the canal, incredibly convenient. Only negatives were they didn't have converters (come on, even hostels have those), wifi was occasionally spotty, and of course because it's italy, any double beds are just two twin beds pushed together

Walked into hotel bar for a drink and no one was serving for over 15 mins as were currently too busy chatting to 3 women or moving tables!!! When asked why the tv wasn't working we were... More

Very close to the train and bus station so easy to get to. Can be a bit of a walk to St Marks however you discover more and see more of Venice. Amazing staff, one receptionist was a bit cold however the bar staff were amazing. Upon giving a tip, he refused and then gave us our drinks for free... More

I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The location is great, close to the station, easy to find and right beside the Grand Canal. Reception staff were helpful and efficient. The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. WIFI was good. Breakfast was plentiful and provided in the dining area overlooking the Grand Canal.
