The red carpet was rolled out in the hotel lobby when we arrived and we knew we were in for a special treat. This restored palace from the 12th century has beautiful period decor but modern accommodations for the traveler. Reasonably priced for Venice this hotel/apartment was perfect for our family of five. The hotel is located in a quiet... More

We loved our stay at the Palazzo Contarini. The hotel is completely charming: the common area and the garden were wonderful surprises. It was perfect for our two day trip in Venice. The hotel was a good ten to fifteen minute walk from San Marco, but it was nice to stay in an area that was a little removed from... More

Ideal place for a family, near the centre, only 10 min walk away, quite road, no noise in the night. Adequate apartment with two rooms and two bathrooms. Breakfast 13 euros, choice ok. Friendly staff, always very helpful. The apartments are a real alternative for a hotel stay when you are looking for two rooms without wanting to pay for... More

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

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
