My partner and I have traveled all across the United States, plus Brazil, Argentina and nearly all the major European capitals. But this hotel was the best of all. I'd go back to Venice just to stay there. Oltre il Giardino is in an old palazzo, but it's been beautifully renovated inside. Our room was very spacious by even U.S.... More

I am so glad that they had a room available for us at this 6-room gem in this quiet but convenient area of Venice. It was evident that much of their business was from repeat customers. Our suite was not luxurious (though the bathroom was), but there were many windows and much more light and air than one expects in... More

Recommended by friends for its quiet intimacy and superb service, on our first trip to Venice we also decided the location was perfect as well. We were well located to access all parts of Venice by foot or boat, but away from the crowded tourist areas. And some of the nicest shops we found in Venice turned out to be... More

This was great choice B&B. We stayed in Venice for a long weekend on the end of our Italian trip before heading home. Again location was key and it's a good central one. The room was on the first floor and was great. Bigger than expected with a strong shower flow. The staff were helpful with short cuts on how... More

A hidden home in the center of Venice, this b&b has a great location, is quiet and charming. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Located about a 5 minute walk from the Vaporetto stop, 25 minutes to Piazza San Marco, and 15 minutes to the Rialto Bridge and the Accademia. There are some nice restaurants and shops very close...

We have recently returned from our first visit to Venice and stayed here. I can highly recommend this small hotel. All the staff were extremely friendly, kind and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble - even a delicious cup of tea brought up to the bedroom on our return from a hard day's sight seeing (all included)! Delicious breakfast included... More

We stayed at Il Giardino for a long weekend in October. It absolutely lived up to the reviews we read on Trip Advisor! Our room was large and very comfortable. We had a room on the first floor which overlooked the garden. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom was really nice with a large bath and shower attachment.... More

We have stayed here five, perhaps six times and have reservations for next Spring. Can't say enough good things about the staff, service, and location. Kudos to all and thank you for all of your kind care and hospitality. Mille grazie!

Reviews really help when booking a hotel in a city you've never been to. Wanted a quiet spot to finish our Italy tour in and this was definitely the right choice. Couldn't wait for breakfast every day - it was a treat. only 6 rooms here. Had a great suite on the top floor. Was a quiet spot (construction happening... More
