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

Two of us went for my wife's birthday. From the minute the door opened into the courtyard we were entrhalled. The building is beautiful with extremely grand and spacious rooms. The staff were outstanding from the inital reception to our checking out. I cannot speak highly enough of them. Everything from major sites to the water bus is in easy... More

We had one night in venice with three small children. We got a large, well furnished apartment. The staff was extremely helpful. The hotel is slightly outside the major sights, but it's really a short walk. We will most definitely stay here again.

It has been a pleasant stay. Staff is cordial and willing to help. They also organize excursions to Murano island. Breakfast is not cheap but you can find anything you like to eat and drink. Try to be as quiet as you can since the place is really quiet and other guest may be disturbed (it happened to me...). Perfect... More

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
