Just back from a 3 night stay at Al Ponte Antico. We reserved based on excellent tripadvisor reviews and we kept on congratulating ourselves on finding such a gem. We already knew we had done well from the correspondence following our reservation. Having never been to Venice before it was very reassuring. We took a water taxi direct to the... More

They are there to assist and advice you with anything you will need during your stay...from restaurant suggestions to booking tickets for Opera and Concerts. The whole team always welcome you warmly and have a genuine wish for you to... More

From the moment of our arrival by water taxi at this superbly refurbished bijoux palace situated within a stone's throw of The Rialto Bridge, Matteo and his staff were incredibly welcoming. Our room, on a level with the Grand Canal, with splendid views at night as well as daytime, was just beautiful - spacious, richly furnished and comfortable. The upstairs... More

Matteo, the owner,could not have... More

This was our first hotel after four days of visiting in Germany and the beginning the rest of our month long vacation in Italy. It was the perfect beginning to Italy. From the moment we walked in the door, we were greeted by name and treated to perfection. Owner, Matteo was welcoming and continued that warm feeling our entire stay.... More

My wife and I, both in our 50s, stayed at Al Ponte Antico in October. The two best aspects of the hotel are the friendliness of the staff and the manager, Matteo, and the balcony over the Grand Canal. Guests are treated as a visiting family member, with Italian hospitality. If you like chatting with an enthusiastic friend about sights,... More

Upon arrival at the private dock we were warmly welcomed by Alex who showed us around while we waited only five minutes to be shown to our room. The Grand canal front terrace is a perfect perch for watching all of the canal activity. We felt like VIPs as the tourist packed vasparatos cruised past, photographing the building as we... More

We recently returned from our trip to Italy. We stayed 2 nights at this unbelievable hotel. (i wish it was for longer!!!!!). Upon your arrival, the water taxi from the airport brings you directly to the private dock where you are greeted personally by Matteo, the owner and Alex. Matteo and his entire staff could not be more welcoming, friendly... More

What an amazing experience. I have pretty high expectations, as I do seminars and key notes on customer service for a living. I was blown away! Personal, but careful not to be obtrusive. An amazing personal introductory tour of this 15th century castle, turned boutique hotel by the owner, Matteo. Breakfast personally prepared by him as well. A staff that... More
