“Truly Lovely Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is the first review I have made about anything anywhere - I have until now been selfish enough to consider my time too precious. Tut tut tut.
I am moved only by the lovelyness of this hotel, it's superb location, the appetising and plentiful breakfast and the proffesionalism and excellence of each member of its staff. Spent three wonderful days in Venice last week. Magical place for us made perfect by the Ruzzini Hotel. It was a celebration break for us and we were lucky enough to be given a complementarychilled bottle of Prosecco on arrival and a room upgrade but quite apart from this the hotel and staff were absolutely wonderful. Dreaming of a return visit for our next anniversary!

Room Tip: Just go. You can't go wrong.

Arrived from the airport by water taxi and had a wonderful time this hotel was amazing. Great location right in the middle of everything.Staff lovely and helpful everything spotless & clean. Food was great and we will definitely be returning. We left just on the day the rain came so were very lucky.

Room Tip: Choose a delux room it was lovely and looked out onto the square.

The Hotel was excellent and the staff were friendly and always available to
help and this was well proven on the day of our departure. On this day Venice was flooded, yes flooded.... We, with the assistance of the hotel staff, had to wade in 20 inches of water for approximately 1 mile to the Rialto Pier to catch a water taxi to take us to the airport. We could not have asked for more. Also our room was wonderful and the breakfast excellent. Highly recommended.

Dear Guest,
We are happy that you appreciate our staff assistance during your stay in our Ruzzini Palace and not last the help given you on your departure day when there was the “Acqua Alta”. Hoping to have once the pleasure of seeing you....

We've just returned from a 3 night stay, very impressed with our choice of hotel! It's in the perfect location just a 5min walk from St Mark's square and 5min from Rialto Bridge. The staff were fantastic, friendly advice and directions. We caught the beginnings of the 6th worse floods but staff were on hand to help us out, they borrowed us wellies so we could walk/wade to Rialto Bridge to check conditions for transfer to airport and then supplied us with temporary waders so we could get our water taxi and keep dry for the airport! Excellent weekend would definitely recommend, the only comment for improvement would be tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Thank you Ruzzini Palace :o)

Dear Guest,
We wish to thank you for your nice review and are happy that you enjoyed your stay in Venice despite the “Acqua Alta”. As you said, just with a pair of wellies you can enjoy the town even during the high tide hours, to look at a “different” Venice. As far as tea facilities in our accomodations, they are only provided from DeLuxe and superior accommodations (not in standard). Thank you again!

We had a wonderful time there. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. The breakfast surprised us, everything was fresh and delicious. The rooms are comfortable and the location of the hotel is perfect.I wouldn't even think about staying somewhere else when returning to Venice!

This was a beautiful hotel. We got picked up at the train station by a water taxi and felt like we were driving into a dream! Venice is so beautiful, the hotel was in a great location and the staff were wonderful. Only stayed two nights which was the only mistake I made! Next time we are staying longer and exploring Venice!

This hotel was excellent. We stayed in a junior suite and the room was excellently appointed, had a view of the canal, was clean, very good size, and excellent in all other aspects. The hotel employees were excellent and very helpful. All other hotel services were good; internet access was good and reliable during our stay. Breakfast was acceptable.
Location of the hotel is really good. The hotel is located in front of one of the landmarks of Venice. The area has a few restaurants around. We found that San Marco plaza was within a reasonable walking distance from the hotel. The hotel has its own pier where you can get a water taxi to the train station for 70 EUR.
