Great place, very intimate and great service. The owner of the hotel welcomed us in and carried our luggage to our room! was so nice and polite plus his english was flawless so it was very easy to communicate with him and the rest of the staff. The breakfast was our favorite part, the owner again made eggs and crepes... More

Booked Italian trip with Planet Rail. Arrived in Venice by train from Milan. Collected by water taxi from station and taken to the really beautiful hotel Al Ponte Antico that overlooks the Rialto bridge. We were met by Alex the hotel manager at the canal side and from the start were really made to feel welcome. The hotel is a... More

Our second visit to Al Ponte Antico within a year. We came at the end of 2013 and were so impressed I did my first ever Tripadvisor review (Dec 12013). This time we brought our four teenage-student age sons, and in fact created our whole summer holiday around the chance to revisit this perfect gem. They were equally impressed, not... More

The owner, Matteo is charming, passionate, and serious about his role as the owner of the hotel. He greeted us at reception very fondly and gave us a proud tour of his hotel, talking about its history, renovation and current success. Our room was at the back with three windows which didn't let in much light because of the high... More

I chose this hotel based on reviews and I was not dissapointed in any of the following ways: we reached the hotel by water taxi from the port which in itself was an experience and the personalized greeting was greatly appreciated. The staff was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. The owner's personal commitment demonstrated by his presence and his participation in... More

What a delighful stay! Matteo has lovingly restored this beautiful palazzo and he and his friendly staff could not have been more attentive and helpful. The view of the Grand Canal and the Rialto from our room and the terrace/bar was unforgettable. We will definitely be back!

Where to start, upon arrival we were warmly & graciously greeted by the owner & staff. The service was impeccable & very personal. They welcomed each person on our party & always addressed each person by name, including our 10 year old twins. The owner also prepares breakfast & serves the most delectable crepes! The service at breakfast again was... More

We arrived by water taxi to be greeted personally, by name, by the owner and every moment of the next three days were made to feel that our every convenience was their highest priority. This boutique hotel has only nine guest rooms so often you have the balcony to yourself to simply enjoy time watching Venice float by and have... More

From the moment we were greeted upon our arrival via water taxi we knew we were at a very special place. The service, rooms and food are the very best. Our stay here was one of the highlights of our entire trip. We would highly recommend a stay in this wonderful hotel. Simply said... It was outstanding!
