“Great little boutique gem in heart of Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is great base from which to explore Venice. Really easy to find (with directions on their website) and very close to local Vaporetto stop. Staff knowledgeable and cheerful - we got good advise on travel, things to visit and restaurants - which helped make our stay a great one. Our room (double superior) was warm, quiet, largish and cosy. The decor is a kitschy, classic feel that is done well (though may not be to everyone's taste - check pics as it looks exactly like it does on website). Breakfast is bountiful and tasty. Our bathroom had no bath which was a disappointment - so check this if it's important - but that's my only niggle. This is a perfect place for a romantic break.

Stayed here for 4 nights in November and my fiancee and I really liked this hotel. The location is great, the rooms are a decent size and the bathrooms are pretty spacious by European standards. The hotel is sort of tucked away in the canals so it's very quiet and easy to sleep and rest, but also a short 10 min was to St. Marks, Dosoduro, etc. Also, we really enjoyed the daily breakfast and the staff was helpful and accommodating. Definitely don't expect luxury accommodations but for the money, this hotel is very comfortable and I highly recommend it.

Our family of four ( including 2 teenage girls) was very pleased with this hotel. We woke each morning to the magical music of gondoliers below our windows. The hotel design matches the whimsical world of Venice. Almost all of the staff were friendly and accommodating. The location was perfect- close enough to San Marco but off the main thorough ways. We would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a memorable stay in Venice.

My husband and I stayed at the AD Place as part of our wedding/honeymoon trip, after reading lots of reviews on trip advisor we booked to stay 3 nights here, a decision we didn't regret. Having emailed the hotel prior to our arrival we had clear directions to get us to the hotel, and these got us there without any problems. Check in was pleasant with some good restaurant recommendations and we were shown to our rooms where our cases we waiting for us. The rooms are up several flights of stairs so if you have mobility problems then these maybe an issue but we were fine, especially when our beautiful too was at the top of them!!

Our room had a gorgeous four poster bed with a view over the canals with passing gondolas singing, it was as romantic as it sounds!!

My only slight problem was whenever the toilet was used it made quite a noise as it was a saniflow style, and also the carpet seemed a little damp by the door.

Breakfast was perhaps the best of our trip, with a huge selection of breads, cakes, cheeses, tea and coffee, fresh juices I could go on, in a quirky breakfast room with lovely staff!

The location was perfect, we could get to st marks square and Rialto bridge easily on foot and I think this is the best method of exploring Venice, getting lost in the narrow streets!

If you have time enjoy a drink or two on the rooftop terrace truly unforgettable.

Thank you to all the staff for making our honeymoon so enjoyable.

Quirky, quaint and in a super location! Arrived and were given an upgrade from basic double to junior suite which was lovely and a super start to our trip. Then we were told we could go upstairs to the lounge/bar at any time of day and help ourselves to complementary pastries, biscuits and hot drinks. The holiday was getting even better. Finally, whilst in the lounge/bar that evening drinking complementary hot drinks the barman offered us complimentary kirk royales. All throughout the stay staff were extremely kind and helpful. Definitely will recommend the Ad Place to anyone going to Venice and if we return will definitely stay there again! Brilliant!!

A beautifully appointed hotel. Worth paying the little bit extra—location is great. It's only a few minutes walk from the water bus stop, and five minutes walk to Piazza San Marco.

The rooftop terrace is a lovely place to take some pre-dinner drinks and meet other couples staying in the hotel. Make sure you visit the little hideaway just off reception to sit by the canal and watch the gondolas glide past.

The breakfast room had a wonderful selection of high-quality food to choose from.

The reception staff were wonderful and gave us many great tips for where to find some hidden bars.

Loved our stay and would highly recommend AD Place to friends and family.

Room Tip: There is no lift, so ask for a rooms on a lower floor.
