The beauty of the restoration of this palazzo is striking. The history and the tasteful redecoration of the palazzo is a calming, inspiring reminder of the history of Venice. The shared, common areas (piano nobile) give you a taste of what truly living in one of these stunning palaces would have been like. I could not go up to or... More

Great location arriving from the quieter north side of the island. A beautiful suite with a double aspect. Light and airy. Quiet unobtrusive air con in an double hight mansion room. Service was excellent with a taxi from the canal entrance to the glass works included. A couple of locals shops / stalls just outside for those items needed when... More

We are a family of 6 adults and stayed l night prior to cruise ship vacation. I wanted one room that would fit our whole family and this was perfect. This was a great choice and I wish I had stayed 2 nights or more. Close to everything and the area was very safe. Was able to get a boat... More

We arrived at the hotel. We were taken straight to the nice and luxurious sofa room on the top floor. It was super beautiful. Then we noticed the FREE Wi-Fi password. PS: This hotel had the best wifi than any other hotel in our epic trip. The hotel had a dock. In this case we took a water taxi to... More

Just returned from a trip to northern Italy that included three nights at the Palazzo Contarini della Porta di Ferro. I'd visited Venice before but this time was looking for a place far from the usual tourist paths, so I chose the Palazzo. The building's age and beauty greatly appealed to me, and its staff was highly responsive via email... More

I had been warned to expect really tiny pokey hotel rooms in Venice but this hotel was a wonderful surprise. The suite of rooms we had were quite a luxury. However, Another set of rooms which our friends had reserved was fascinating. They had just asked for one bedroom with an extra bed. Instead they got a double bedroom and... More

I was with David (dholer) and can back up his comments. I would also like to add that the staff were fantastic and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble but they were very discreet. The Palazzo has a wonderful charm and serenity about it - very peaceful, residential area of Venice yet only a 10 min walk from St... More

Just back from our trip, 3 nights in Torcello apartment (with roof terrace) as a dummy run for our wedding next year. It is a real gem, in a quiet location, 10 minutes to the nearest Grand Canal water bus stop (Arsenale). Arrived door to door from Airport in a water taxi, which is a must! The Palazzo is fantastic,... More

We had booked this hotel prior to going on our cruise, and wanted a couple of days in Venice to start with. The water taxi took us there and entered the hotel via a few steps from the canal. Our room was only a matter of yards away from that entrance, right next to reception, and you could hear the... More

Like others have said, this hotel has some of the best service and attention to detail I've seen anywhere. Very spacious, beautifully decorated rooms with a convenient common area including a quiet deck for sipping wine and a gorgeous courtyard right out of a post card. The staff will go out of their way to arrange water taxis (they have... More
