“Ticked all our boxes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

A really comfortable hotel, excellent value, lovely rooms and exceptionally helpful reception staff. We had reserved an executive room (which are very nice) but were lucky enough to be given an upgrade to executive suite...all the better! The suites really are beautiful and very spacious indeed. Lovely bathroom, huge terrace, enormous bed. Didn´t have time to use wellness facilities so can´t comment on those. The parts of the hotel which we saw were clean and very well mantained.

NO, as other reviewers have mentioned, it´s not in Venice (and never claims to be) but it IS convenient for the airport and there´s a very enjoyable restaurant (open late) just across the road and several others close by. There´s an excellent and reasonably priced shuttle into Venice.

This is a great spot to spend your first night if you´re on a late flight...believe me it´s no fun fighting your way thru venice after a long journey, particularly not at night....staying here also makes sense if you´re wanting to see Venice on a lower budget but dont want to take a self catering option. Breakfast isn´t a priority in Italy so dont expect wonders (anywhere) to start the day....

We enjoyed our short stay so much that we may very stay here few several days when not taking a house/apartment in the city.

Room Tip: Executive rooms are worth the extra.

This hotel is very modern, well designed, clean and well staffed.

It is NOT in Venice, rather it is about 15 minutes drive away. This however is not a problem as the hotel operate a shuttle service to and from Venice and also the airport. Each journey is five euros per person per journey. Good value when you consider other guests were charged thirty euros for the very short trip to the hotel from the airport in a taxi.

The shuttle drops you at the bus terminal/train station area when you get to Venice. This is about a half hour walk to the Rialto bridge and I would estimate about 50 minutes to St. Mark's square. The scenery and buildings are enough to take your mind from how far away you have been dropped however.

The actual hotel is a nice base to return to after a day in Venice. The breakfast was standard for a continental hotel - plenty of it though.

There are a couple of restaurants that we used for dinner opposite - Bavarian Fest which was good (closed Mondays) and a pizzeria on the roundabout opposite - 7 euros for a pizza, 7.5 euros for a LITRE of beer. Excellent value.

The hotel doesn't serve food outside of standard mealtime hours (unless you order room service - sixteen euros for a frozen pasta dish seems expensive in anyone's language) and the bar is priced just a tad over what you would expect but not extortionate.

The staff can be either delightful or snippy, depends on who serves you - but on the whole this was a very good choice for a base to explore Venice.

Pros:
- Quiet and acceptably clean (the common hair found in the room, the game that average hotels still attempt to tackle but just can't get it right).
- Location is good if you want to do some shopping, a large shopping mall is just a 10 minute walk, and surrounded by other outlets for electronics. On the very corner of the hotel; there's a place that sells all the souvenirs you'll ever want to get from Venice at a fair price.
- The shuttle service was nice and free. The hotel was kind to offer such service to Venice old town.
- Staff are friendly and helpful, they would answer to all questions in English and really offer assistance.
- Service is prompt and all you need is to ask and it'll be at your doorstep within minutes.
- It's a 10 - 15 minute drive away from the airport. You'll be resting in bed in no-time.
- It's secure (or feels like it) as access to the elevator is only by card and cameras are just everywhere.
- This hotel is what you need if you're on business, everything is a short drive away, and although I prefer Mestre to stay in terms of location and access; but this one was just right.
- The free Internet is a bless.. thank you.. really..
- To stay at this hotel is all you need as a tourist, fair and decent, you'll spend most of your day out in the old town.
- Acceptable small gym.
- Air-conditioning is really strange, as it stops working after some time, so I got up at night several times to turn it on.. and yes.. controls for that are NOT next to the bed.

Cons:
- Sauna did not work when I was there, but it seems like it has not for some time, as the sticker on the door looked old!
- Some staff did not speak English, especially those who comes to the room if you needed towels or an iron board, so if you need to ask for something more; you'll have to call reception.
- The shampoo and shower gel comes in a tiny bag, hardly all 4 were enough to wash my body let alone hair.
- Coffee and tea making facilities provided (thank you), and there was a coffee pod (or espresso pod) provided, but no coffee machine to use it! I was wondering how am I supposed to prepared my coffee.. squeeze the pod by hand or spoons!?

Room Tip: A clean one with no hair in it.

We stayed here for 1 night in advance of joining a cruise ship in Venice and 2 nights on return.
The hotel provided everything we needed and we would happily stay here again. The rooms we had were standard size and had a decent bathroom, tea making facilities and a fridge which we really appreciated. The location isn't ideal if you were staying here for a week or more as you are some distance from Venice (taxi 50 euros) and there is very little around the hotel on an evening as it is a commercial area.

The staff in the hotel were lovely and happy to help and spoke excellent English which always reminds me how poor I am at languages!

We only ate breakfast in the hotel as the chairs in the main dining area (the bar) weren't ideal for people as large as us. We used the dining tables near reception instead. The selection available far exceeded our expectations with both a cold and a hot buffet, plus cereals, toast etc.

When sat in the reception area I suggest you don't look up, the disadvantages of the stunning chandeliers (not easy to dust) and a really high ceiling (cobwebs) become obvious.

We ate at the 'Bavarian' pizzeria opposite the hotel where the staff were great and food really good value for money.

We also used the hotel shuttle to Venice (30 mins trip) which cost 5 euros in each direction. Whilst this is a great service, you do have to book the outward and return times in advance which I personally don't like as I don't want to run to a timetable when on holiday. Totally understandable though that the hotel need to operate this way as seats are limited. We also had an issue where the bus didn't turn up and the hotel said they had mistakenly booked us on the next bus over an hour later. They cancelled all charges for the day as compensation and apologised but I can't help but wonder whether they cancelled the earlier shuttle as we were the only ones who booked it and only one person was on the later one, having said that, their apology seemed very genuine. I suggest that you make sure you have the hotel phone number with you so you can check if there are any issues (one party also used this to check availability and amend their return time)

Whilst we had a niggle over the shuttle I would be very happy stay here again.

I always thought that a long weekend would be enough time to spend in Venice, I would suggest you need at least 5-7 days to see the major sites and take in the Venetian way of life.

Room Tip: It would appear some rooms have balconies - I am not sure if there is an extra charge but worth aski...

This hotel was very beautiful and fit with everything we needed to rest. Additionally it had a very good service bringing you to Venice. The breakfast could be improved but the diner was nice. Although it is not located at a very beautiful location, the price quality balance was very good.

A great stay. Everything is spotlessly clean and so comfortable. The room was beautiful and the bathroom had a lovely hot shower. After busy days exploring the city it was great to come back to a delicious meal in the restaurant, before a good night's sleep in comfy beds. The shuttle service offered to the city and airport is really convenient. The staff were very polite and helpful. Would definitely stay here again

I spent one night at the Antony Palace Hotel in Marcon due to it's proximity to the Venice airport. It had everything that you could want in a hotel - clean, nice restaurant (including an American breakfast selection - nice addition) and a professional and helpful staff. Really nice rooms, probably double the size of the room I stayed at elsewhere earlier in the week. Add to that that the cost is very reasonable, probably 1/3 less than some international brands nearby. Though I didn't use it, they have a shuttle into Venice. I will certainly plan to stay there on my next visit to the area and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a King bed, it's outstanding.
