My wife and I went to Venice with our best friends and we had two bedroom apartment. The living room was very spacious, we would return every night and spend a wonderful time chatting about the day and the guys actually gave the gals a foot massage one night. We were able to buy wine from a convenience store close... More

What an exquisite Palazzo! Our room large and very comfortable. Great bathroom! Fabulous breakfasts. You leave your car outside of Venice in a large parking garage. There are water taxis that will drop you in the vicinity of your hotel for a small price. We opted for a private water taxi that took us to the door (dock ) of... More

We stayed three nights in this lovely Palazzo. We had a 2 room loft apartment on the 5th floor (508) with small low windows and thus little light but very spacious with a kitchen and two bathrooms. The staff members were professional, polite and accommodating - a pleasure to interact with. One night when it rained terribly and we came... More

The good: My room was clean and large, with a canal view. The bad: Breakfast cost 13 euros extra, ridiculous, but it didn't start until 8am anyway and so was useless. Wireless connection was poor. The room had a kitchenette, but the hotel charges 50 euros if you use it, so I didn't. Make sure to check out the night... More

I could not have been more pleased with both the accommodations and the staff of the Palazzo Contarini. The suite was spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Considering that the building is an old one, it has been nicely renovated for its conversion into a modern guest facility. All staff members were professional, polite and accommodating - a pleasure to interact... More

While they were gracious enough to find me another place to stay - which I very much appreciated - they did not fulfill the booking made 5 weeks in advance. They said only the something was broken. They claimed to have tried to reach me, but there was no email and no call I could see. The replacement room was... More

My daughter and i spent one night in Venice. We wanted this night and day in Venice to be the best we could make it and so increased our budget on hotel stay. The Palazzo met our expectations and surpassed them in size, quality, customer service and something different. We were captured by the history and the idea that it... More

We stayed in this hotel with a visiting friend from the U.S. for two nights and had a great time in Venice. All together the hotel is a very nice place to stay in (with a wonderful closed yard), if you adjust your expectations. It's not a four or even five star hotel (and does not claim that either). You... More

A nice palazzo with a lot of charme. The entrance and "salon" are beautiful places. It's a bit remote from the center (10+ min from San Marco) but we learned to really love this part of Venice (away from tourists, nice restaurants and bars, local life). The staff was very nice, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. So why only "average"? Because our... More

Judging by the rest of the reviews, we must have been given the the worst room in the "hotel". We arrived by water taxi and awkwardly got off the boat and stepped into the lobby. There was only one staff person, so we waited about 20 minutes until being checked in, as she was dealing with other guests. I found... More
