We enjoyed this hotel so much. We had the junior suite with canal view. It wasn't exactly a junior suite by American standards, but the room was very spacious, with a large bathroom with steam shower, and good closet space. We had a corner room with a great view of the canal and the Bridge of Sighs. The breakfast was... More

I have recently been staying here for 3 nights having been in Venice for business. Private boat taxi pick up from the airport, even though quite expensive, worked relatively OK, the problem having been that I had not been clearly informed where the boat would pick me up - the details on the registration / booking form by the hotel...

This hotel is located in the perfect location, so central. You would think it would be quite noisy at night due to its central location, but it is so quiet. The staff are so friendly, professional and helpful, there is no problem too big or small that they wouldn't deal with. We planned on heading to one of the islands... More

We visited in January when Venice is at its quietest and this Hotel was virtually empty, but that made it all the better for us. At that time of year, breakfast is carried in from a Restaurant next door, but it di not matter as the room was perfect. Bijou and well appointed. Ask for a Junior Suite and you... More

Dear Sir/Madam, thank you so much for considering your experience at the Hotel Al Ponte dei Sospiri "perfect" (to quote your words). You chose a very quiet month of the year to stay with us, benefiting not only of a quietness that Venice rarely enjoys on other times. Then your balcony over the Canal of the Canonica, the views over... More

I do not normally write reviews, however this is well deserved. It was my first time in Venice and I wanted to stay in a hotel that retained the classic Venetian style. This was it. The hotel is approximately a 5 min walk from the square. Shops, restaurants, canal access are literally right outside the door (as opposed to other... More

Slide out of your four poster bed, throw open the curtains, and stride out onto your own balcony with your morning coffee for a view of the Bridge of Sighs and the Lagoon beyond. This small, charming boutique hotel, is a former palazzo with quirky individual rooms, each with a real sense of style. It is unusual and delightful, albeit... More

A very short walk from San Marco (and the San Marco stop on the water bus from the airport), the location for this hotel was awesome! Obviously, it was very close to the action, but also enough off the beaten path to enjoy some piece and quiet. The staff was very kind, especially after finding out we were on the... More

I'll start by saying that this hotel is beautiful... on the surface. Unfortunately some of the fixtures and fittings are old or falling apart. Yes, it is picture perfect but don't tug at anything or brace yourself against anything, especially in the shower. Apart from this, I cannot give this hotel less than 5/5! The staff are amazing and made... More
