Booked a suite, which was huge and full of antique furniture, over looking the canal with 2 balconies. Very comfortable and clean, staff very helpful and welcoming. Nice quite location, walking times (without getting lost or distracted!) - 5 minutes from Alilaguna stop Ospedale( for airport) 10 minutes from San Marco, 15 from Rialto . Small supermarket and nice wine... More

We stayed one night at the hotel, it was a very beautiful place and we enjoyed our stay. We came by water bus, the hotel sent us the direction by e-mail, so after we got off no. 51, we followed instruction and it was only five – ten minutes of walk to get to the hotel. However, we did walk... More

Palazzo Contarini is in the northern end of the Castello sestiere, the easternmost region of the city. Although only a 15 minute walk from the Piazza San Marco, this area is much quieter than the more Westerly sestieris. The hotel itself is a little difficult to find, but of course since the entire city is one big labyrinth it's all... More

Relatively easy to find from the Celestia Vaporetto stop, this hotel has a beautiful courtyard and wonderful main reception room. If I had been there with several friends , we would certaibly have used the shared sitting room to meet up. Our room was huge as we had a full kitchen and lounge area. The kitchen, however, needed to be... More

It was difficult to find but well worth it. It was stunning, spacious and quiet. The street livened up in the morning with the fruit seller, butcher, baker, grocer etc. We went every morning and got ham, cheese and fresh rolls and croissants. The bar next to the corner bar was great with lovely seafood tapas and friendly service. Beatrice... More

This refurbished jewel is located in a quiet area of Castello, and gives you a rare opportunity to stay in palatial rooms for a fair price in Venice. We read other reviews, and were fully prepared to get 'lost' but it was easy to locate from the Vaporetto stop (Celeste). One tip is to look for a 'Campo' or square... More

We had a nightmare finding this place even in day light. From Rialto bridge it is a maize to get to this place for the first time. In hindsight we should have got to the hotel from a closer boat stop and when we left the hotel, we did this and it was quite simple. When we arrived at the... More

Heaps of charm and character. We had a 3 bedroom apartment for 6 people. The apartment had 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining table and lounge area with TV. Very spacious apartment. Rooms were large and clean. Beds and pillows all very comfortable. Huge common area on 2nd floor with lovely couches - a most welcoming area. We walked to the Palazzo... More

This was a nice hotel offering apartment type suites. We accessed the Contarini via water taxi from the Venezia SL Train Station. Overall the hotel has an air of mystique about it which was further enhanced with the myriad assortment of artworks that were in the lobby and the rooms themselves. The rooms were nicely appointed with the ones my... More
