Reception area was very hot and stuffy. Decor interesting and a bit unusual but that didn't bother us and we will remember it long after mainstream hotels we have stayed in. Seemed like we were the only guests there, as never saw anyone else but breakfast was very good and rooms clean and comfortable. Central. Parking fine.

We stayed here May 2013. The Palais Portia is, as I understand, a palace dating back to the 17th century. The hotel has been rebuilt using the original facade. I rate this as a 4 star hotel. Reception is on the first floor which can be accessed by lift. We arrived at the hotel about 2pm. There was no one... More

This place was great. I felt like an emporer staying there. The place is like a museum with beautiful old paintings and statues all around the place, the breakfast was great and the hotel has a really central location.

I stayed here for two nights and the staff was so nice... the breakfast was great, with fresh fruits and lots of options, the bed very nice and also the rooms. AC was working good. The bedroom had a nice view of the dragon, just in front of it, the square gets very noisy, but when you close the windows... More

When I booked a business room (for 2 nights, ie 27/5/13 - 28/5/13) at the hotel through its web site, all seemed OK, especially when I read some opinions at the Trip Advisor site. Upon arrival we were given a room (no. 69` 4th floor). The air condition was extremely low and could not have chilled the room. Since the... More

The Hotel Palais Porcia was different. The hotel faces a plaza which is quite lovely but can get very noisy at night. Though there is a counter downstairs in the hotel lobby, we had to take an elevator up a floor to actually check in. Strange. Felt like there was no one there to greet/welcome us. Once we did get...

As our rental car was not allowed to enter Italy, we decided to use the Austrian Train Bus to Venice. We stayed a night in a delightful old-style hotel in the center of Klagenfurt, a city that needs to be visited again. Delightful breakfast room with mirror, all designed like an old city palace, put atop a C&A shopping mall.... More

As other reviewers have pointed out this really is the rococco palais themed hotel. You either like the look or hate it. I decided to stay here because of the kitschness of the place. Who wants an identikit experience on your travels? To come to the essentials, the location is ideal, rooms a decent size and all the conveniences you... More

Not the most inexpensive of lodgings for sure but well worth it. As other reviews have pointed out, the front desk is not on the street level, but easily accessible via an elevator. We ordered a normal room but were upgraded to a suite without asking. The interior is as good as the pictures at their website make it look.... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Palais Porcia. The decor is very ornate, not unlike that in the castles and palaces you can visit in Germany and Austria. I felt like I was staying in one of King Ludwig's castles which I liked because I LOVE castles. If you like modern decor this is not the hotel for you. The... More
