This special place exceeded all my expectations. The location is on a quiet canal hidden behind a garden wall. Just steps from the Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari Basilica and square with several places for dining, cocktails or shopping. It is a quiet retreat that is away from the sometimes overwhelming crowds. Yet close enough to join when you like.... More

We stayed here 4 nights in September. The hotel, its garden and staff all live up to the reviews you will read here. Simply put, it was fantastic. The hotel is very well located - a short walk from the train station and an easy walk to all of Venice. Plenty of amenities are close by. The place is truly... More

We stay here twice a year and have done so for the the last 5 years or so. Kudos to the wonderful staff - couldn't be more helpful or courteous. Every stay has been perfect! We normally stay for a week or more because the hotel is perfectly located for visiting all of Venice, but also for taking day trips... More

I stayed here with my 2 adult children and they were able to accommodate 3 beds in our room. This 6 room hotel is located in ideal spot away from the main tourist area. A 10 min walk from the Piazzalle Roma ( where the taxi’s & buses are ) and a 10/15 min walk to the Rialto bridge and... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in August 2014. Tucked away behind a rather inconspicious entry door, this small hotel has all it takes to relax after a day in busy Venice. Although located fairly centrally (lots of good restaurants nearby, close enough to Rialto and within 10 minutes or so of 2 Vaporetto stops), it is quiet enough to help... More

Returning to Oltre Il Giardino each day after walking the streets of Venice is a lovely treat. It is calm and cool and though close to all the main attractions, it is removed enough to be a haven. A lovely garden and excellent staff complete the recipe! This is a small six room hotel, you will walk out the garden... More

I took my mum to Venice for her 70th birthday, as it is somewhere we've both always wanted to visit. I spent approximately 3 months on and off researching places to stay, mainly because I was spending a fair amount of money on the trip and didn't want to be disappointed. At Oltre Il Giardino we were not disappointed. This... More

Oltre Il Giardino--once the private home of Alma Mahler, widow of composer Gustav Mahler--is quiet, gracious, and timeless. The property sits right at the edge of a canal, so you can take a private water taxi to the front door. It's also a 15 minute walk from the train station, with a good map. And the continental buffet breakfast was... More

First let me say that we are giving Oltre Il Giardino a 4-rating because many folks believe that 5 means a "5-star resort", this is not…it is a bed & breakfast, so travelers should not be confused that this is a 5-star hotel It is a 6-room home, that gives you such a wonderful respite from the hustle and bustle...

I've been coming to hotel in February for the past 3 years. It is a real treasure, off of the beaten track. Rooms are large and comfortable and reasonably priced for Venice, with a good breakfast included. Hotel staff is super friendly and always ready to help. Location is absolutely marvelous as its the right balance between being close enough... More
