Positioned perfectly to capture the Rialto Bridge and Grand Canal, Matteo & his passionate staff ensured we wanted for nothing, cooked our breakfast & met our every need. With only 9 rooms, the 12th century palace has been lovingly restored to its romantic best. Our spacious room faced the canal with the best vantage point to view the busy waterway,... More

I took my son on a trip to Italy for his graduation. The Ponte was one of the hotels we stayed in during our whirlwind trip throughout Europe and was by far the best. Matteo is a master entrepreneur and clearly leads from the front in his property. The humble owner of the hotel takes your luggage to the room?... More

Did I mention that this beautiful property is on the grand canal? Enjoy your breakfast on the terrace while overlooking the traffic as it goes by on the grand canal. This hotel is centrally located in Venice, and is an easy walk or ride to get to everything. We stayed with three of our children in July of this year,... More

During our 3 1/2 weeks in Italy this was our favorite stop and most beautiful hotel. Our host and owner Matteo has such pride in his hotel and it shows in every detail. Matteo was warm, welcoming and informative. His staff is great. Thank you to Alex, Oliver, David and Tommaso who helped make our stay great. Our room was... More

There is a reason that every couple we met at this hotel was either on their Honeymoon or celebrating a milestone Anniversary. After counting down the days to this trip, and staring at the photos I printed out and glued into our travel book for so long, I hardly expected Al Ponte Antico to live up to my expectations. It...

From the moment we arrived via water taxi, Matteo and his staff were on the dock waiting for us to take our luggage and welcome us to Venice and the hotel. The staff waited on us hand and foot from the moment we arrived to the day we departed. They had wonderful recommendations for local restaurants and also clued us... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights the day after our wedding as part of a 3 week honeymoon in Italy. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect start to married life. Matteo is the archetypal Italian gentleman with style and grace which emulates throughout his hotel. All of his staff are wonderful and their attention to... More

We just spent 4 nights at this incredible boutique hotel. If you want to be treated like royalty and stay in a beautiful palace...this is the place for you. The owner Matteo and his staff make you feel like you are staying in their own home. They call you by name and make you feel so welcome. Enjoy a Spritz... More

We spent two amazing nights here, July 2nd & 3rd, and loved every second. The hotel is located perfectly on the Grand Canal and right next to the Rialto Bridge. The personal attention from Matteo and his staff was the best we ever experienced. They truly make you feel like part of the family. Breakfast every morning on the terrace... More

What can we say... Matteo, Alex, Oliver, Tomas - thank you! Amazing hotel in the best location. On checking in, were taken to the private terrace overlooking the Grand Canal for some gorgeous local wine. We felt like royalty as people in gondalas stared up at us, wishing they were there! Our room was stunning and huge, brilliant air con... More
