Be sure to book through hotel site (they include private water taxi transfer from train station - a huge savings). Visit the top floor patio/restaurant, it's covered and spectacular! walking distance to everywhere.

The room we had at this hotel was one of my favorites in Europe. We had a spectacular view of the canals and a balcony that was very nice. The service was good, but the staff at the front desk seemed a little stuck up and too uptight about everything. The restaurant on the rooftop is excellent, I would definitely... More

This is a well located and very comfortable hotel, well worth staying in particularly if you manage to get a room with a view. It is also a more affordable option then some of the other hotels in the area so a good choice if you want to be close to st marks square but not pay for 5 stars.... More

We had a wonderful room in this perfectly located hotel. It's right on the Grand Canal and within steps of everything you want to see. Lovely outdoor patio on the 3rd floor with a nice view of everything. Nice large bathroom. I would give this 5 stars except that I agree with some of the comments about the staff at... More

Another hotel recommended through our travel agent using Classic Collections. Oh wow.... where to start. Well I'll start by saying the New Yorker review is unfair and basically daft!!!.. read on for why.

We decided to treat ourselves so I set about finding somewere suitable which could push the boat out. We had a "superior" room at the front of the building with mini-balconies. It wasn't cheap but for all that was great, really comfortable with fab views, a complimentary bottle of prosecco, an invitation for early evening drinks and with good facilities,... More

This was our seventh visit to Venice and the first time we stayed in Castello. The reception staff was very helpful in making dinner bookings for us in advance of our arrival -- and very friendly and helpful while we were there. The Locanda Vivaldi’s website says public transport stops only few meters away from its entrance. But the #1... More

Buongiorno! Thanks a lot for your very kind review. The boat stops are several, some closer than others. Line number 1 is not the only one who come to San Marco, and not the only one who travel through the Grand Canal! I'm sorry but this information is not correct. In any case, please keep in mind that we now... More

We loved this hotel, which definitely was quite a splurge for us, but worth it. The location cannot be beat, as you can walk to St Marks Square in 5 minutes, and the vaporetto stop is outside the hotel. The hotel has a private boat which they can send for you, and they did, but they did not tell us... More

We stayed here for 1 night, the hotel was easy to find and from check in we knew we would have a great stay. The bedroom was beautiful and very authentic. We had a great view out of our window over the canal. We were treated to free Apperitifs in the terrace on arrival, which was a nice touch. :)... More

This small hotel in Venice was perfect for our two night stay. We booked one room that accommodated two adults and two children. It was a tight squeeze but manageable for two nights. The best part of the room was the small balcony that looked straight out to San Giorgio Maggiore. We sat on our balcony and could watch cruise... More
