“Wonderful boutique hotel great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

This is a lovely hotel hidden away in the back streets, but what a delight. The rooms are beautifully decorated with indulgent fabric on the walls and chandeliers hanging from the ceilings. The hotel is surrounded by the canals so you often hear the gondoliers go by singing at the top of their voices which is so atmospheric.
Great location just 2 minutes from the hub bub, really in Venice every corner you turn takes you to another piazza or historical building.
Lovely staff, good breakfast, great bathrooms and a comfy bed! The small balcony area at the top of the hotel is also a great place to sit and have a drink or a coffee just listening to the sounds of the city all around you.
(Nb have scored the swimming pool and restaurant as excellent as once I clicked it wouldn't let me Un-click but there is no pool and the restaurant is only open for breakfast, which is good, it is a small 12 room hotel)

Just came back from a short trip to Venice for our wedding anniversary and while in Venice we stayed at AD Place for 3 nights. The staff is very friendly and the hotel/rooms are very clean. It is a small hotel, only 12 rooms, so you are greeting when arriving by your name, which doesn't happen in a lot of hotels. We got an upgrade from a superior room to a suite, which was incredible!! The location is fantastic (5-10 min from San Marco square, 15 min from Rialto, right next to the La Fenice theater). The bed is huge and very comfortable. I have read the negative reviews before going (although they weren't a lot of them, they got me worried). But none of them turned out to be true.

Great little hotel, in a perfect location, a stone's throw away from all the major sights. Pretty rooms, decorated in romantic violet and yellow colours. Very comfortable beds, and the bathroom is big and airy as well. The breakfast was delicious, with tasty tarts, croissants, and cakes, and the coffee is always fresh and aromatic. The staff was really helpful and kind. Very recommended.

This romantic boutique hotel is in a perfect location. The lobby is lit at night with lanterns and during the day you notice the rich fabrics and colors. Our lovely room had a canopied bed and as others have mentioned, you can open the window and hear opera. After a day of crowds and sightseeing, enjoy a spritz on the roof top patio. Wonderful breakfast and as with everything the Ad Place does, a beautiful visual presentation (note the flatware, cups, etc). But, the best part may be the incredibly helpful staff, especially Alessandro.

Was there 2 weeks ago for a holiday. Breakdown of the hotel as below;
Location:
It's just perfect!!! convenience to every location, quiet at night, canal besides is a gondola route which you can watch and listen to their singing from your window. It will be full of gondolas during 4-5pm. Just get a coffee and enjoy the experience from the comfort of your hotel.
Rooms:
Well design and comfortable, very romantic, perfect for honeymoon
Staffs and services:
It's above expectation from arrival emails on location, direction makes our life easy. Was greeted with my name upon arrival (don't get that often on many hotels). Breakfast staff was very good and well manner, housekeeping was wonderful in making our stay comfortable. Friendly and helpfull staff in total, speak good english. Great breakfast and coffee.........
Others:
Candles lights on entrance when you arrive at your hotel makes it a very welcome, warm and romantic view after a romantic stroll on Venice.
Nice view on top floor where you can have breakfast with a view.
The hotel will gives you a warm, homely feel.
A perfect hotel makes a great trip perfect which I have experience in AD place

Room Tip: Rooms with canal view is perfect for honeymoon and Venice experience

I planned a surprise honeymoon for my now wife and looked at several hotels within Venice. When I saw the photographs of the rooms I was sold. Upon arrival we were made extremely welcome and were shown around the suite which was lovely. We were also asked what our plans were and were given plenty of ideas and the member of staff marked out key locations and nice walks on a map for us. Within the suite a nice quirky, yet charming decor was throughout the lounge area and bedroom which felt classic yet modern at the same time and we had a nice view of the canal. I especially enjoyed having an espresso machine in our bedroom! Breakfast was extremely good with something for everyone and even included chocolate cake! One night we came back early and purchased a bottle of wine which was served to us on the roof terrace where we had a lovely view of a spectacular thunderstorm. The duty member of staff for the evening kept popping back every so often to check if we needed any more snacks. It is worth noting that the wine menu here is considerably cheaper than anywhere we visited in Venice. The location was very quiet even though it was only 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle. We would love to return here! Highly reccomended.

Although the water bus stop for this hotel is the last on the route, the location is great. The hotel front looks onto the new theatre which is a very easy route from the water bus stop (and there are no bridges to hoist luggage over). AD Place also backs onto a gondola route where you can hear the singing and music and it is also very close to Piazza San Marco.
On arrival we were welcomed by a very friendly member of staff who after receiving our free room upgrade (fantastic), was very helpful in assisting us with a number of questions regarding places to visit (where not to visit) etc.
The room wasn't ready but would be shortly so we waited a few minutes with use of the complimentary coffee machine (this machine was available to any guest, anytime)
The room was extremely clean and very well decorated, the bathroom was fairly small but it was modern and effective.
Breakfast was self service but it worked really well. Plenty to eat and lots of choice - was pleasantly surprised.
Really good find, would definitely return if in the area again.
