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

This hotel was everything I was expecting and more. Yes, it's old but so is everything in Venice. The staff was so nice. By American standards the rooms are small but not a problem for me. Breakfast was adequate. The location is what makes this hotel. It's outside of the busy tourist areas. It's like living as a local. Great... More

Hotel Pausania is a great hotel in Venice! If life ever takes me back to Venice, I would definitely stay again. The Hotel is in a great location. Not too touristy, but not quiet either. It is right along the canal. It is a really cool hotel in that it makes you feel like you are staying where wealthy Veneitians... More

Loved our little hotel's location! By a quiet canal with little passing foot/boat traffic so very peaceful, but only a stone's throw from the charming Ai Pugni bridge and the large, locals' favourite, Campo Santa Margherita which is great for food/drinks and feels very residential. But not far from the tourist hotspots of Accademia and Rialto too, as well as... More
