One of the most interesting hotels I have stayed in with an old set of stunning stairs from centuries ago. It reminded you of the history of Venice. I would rather stay somewhere like this than somewhere modern as the Pausania has a very cosy and homely feel to it. Has a Venetian feel to it. I was in awe... More

We spent our last evening of our 2 week vacation in Venice at the Pausania. The hotel sports traditional old style Venetian charm, with the lull of the local church bell tolling throughout the day . We were a family of 2 adults and 2 small children. The quad room on the 3rd floor we stayed in was sizable, comfortable... More

This hotel is conveniently located to all major attractions. We has the misfortune of being on the 3rd floor and there in no elevator. Also the water pressure from the shower was non existent. We had booked two single beds which had been pushed together into one. So we had to make the bed into singles. One would have thought... More

The quintessential Venetian gem of a hotel. I stayed her with my mom for three nights and we both agreed that it was by far our favorite hotel during our three city tour of Italy. We wish we would have stayed here longer as it had the perfect ambience and exactly what we had hoped for when planning our first... More

This hotel was in a great neighborhood and served as a great "home base" during our recent visit to Venice. Very close to Campo Santa Margherita. Requires crossing NO bridges when you arrive via Ca' Rezzonico Alilaguna stop. Front desk staff was incredibly helpful.

We arrived in venice last after travelling a few cities in Italy. This is one hotel we liked after all the hotels in Italy for the same value. The hotel rooms are full of character with bright red theme going on inside the room. It made us feel that we have arrived in THE Venice. The rooms and bathroom were... More

This hotel is great to find from the water us stop and round the corner from 2 great piazzas for eats n drinks. Right on a canal so very beautiful. We managed the quirky stairs fine. Breakfast was poor and the salami one morning tasted off to me. Room was dark and smelt musty. Just felt unclean- they should get... More

We had seen this hotel on a visit to Venice several years ago, and decided to give it a try on a recent trip. It is located in the Dorsoduro section, just across the Academia pedestrian bridge from, and much less tourist clogged than the St. Mark's area. It is convenient to the Ca Rezzonico vaporetto/Alilaguna airport shuttle stop on... More

We have just returned from this Hotel after a 4 night stay to celebrate our anniversary and my Birthday. We caught the water bus from the Airport which proved to be ok for us and far cheaper than catching the water Taxi. We paid 56 euros for the return trip for the both of us. It is 110 euros for...

This hotel was in a great location, allowing easy access to the major sights, whilst being away from the hustle and bustle. Close to lively squares with numerous eating and drinking options with great atmospheres. Whilst the hotel is decorated in a traditional style which is consistent and charming and overall housekeeping is good, there are aspects of maintenance that... More
