“a very pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

You can believe all the positive reviews. The owners do a great job, demonstrating very good attention to detail. I'd definitely stay here again; very convenient location. Great breakfast too. And a good, strong wifi signal that is easy to log into - which is rarely the case in Italy. The one little 'niggle' - the restaurant that they recommended for dinner on our first night was expensive & a huge disappointment. Do check the internet a bit (beyond tripadvisor.....) for reviews before committing.

This place is an absolute gem! The service is amazing, the atmosphere of the hotel is authentically Venican and its location allows you to be removed from the intense tourist scene. The breakfast is delicious with the crossiants being quite possibly the best we have ever had! The quality and range of food is if a very high standard. We would highly recommend this hotel and can see why it has won Trip Advisor awards. Outstanding in every way!

We enjoyed our stay in the Tizziano suite with plaenty of room for 5 of us. A great location close to bus and rail transport but within easy walking distance to all sites but in an area where it was a bit quieter. Shower is a hand held shower over the bath and the bedroom is up steep stairs.

An “I can’t believe we’re here!” moment turned into a “dream come true!” Venice visit while enjoying this Residence Palazzo Odoni luxury apartment overlooking the canal May 28-30, 2012, a perfect time to experience Venice. This was it! We were so excited to stay in the beautiful Caravaggio suite, so elegantly furnished and decorated in a Venetian theme. From the cozy courtyard entrance, with flowers and greenery and candlelit at night, to the “wow factor” entering the lobby and apartment (have to go up two flights of stairs), to the large tub, kitchenette and living area, to the spacious king and single bedroom with the window and small balcony overlooking the pretty aqua canal, it was the perfect place for the three of us to rest after long day hikes to all the popular places. Michael and Emanuela were the greatest hosts, so welcoming, warm and friendly. Being able to roll our suitcases a short distance from the parking garage to the apartment was important to me (study their map). My expectations were high and the Giangreco’s still exceeded them!

PROS:
Palazzo Odoni stays in a historic building, renewed inside, in the Santa Croce region, strategically situated right two bridges away from the Piazzalle Roma and the Santa Lucia Train Station, with easy and quick access in and out of Venice by foot (as soon as you reach the city by car or train) and sorrounded by good restaurants. The building has a beautiful patio and a charming atmosphere, the decoration is also cosy, the rooms have a good size (considering the italian standard for historical buildings) and has a spacious bathroom with a good shower. There is cable TV but with limited channels in english, french and german (however, in Venice you don´t need TV more than to whatch the news). The staff is excellent, well trained, sympathetic and helpful. The breakfast is one of the best features of the Hotel, with fruits, natural homemade yorgut, integral items, eggs, fresh juices, a variety breads, pastries (we had the best brioche/croissant of the trip) cheese, salami, ham, and capuccino!

CONS:
As expected and based on other comments, there is no elevator, so be prepared to face two stories of stairs if you bring heavy luggage (but the front desk helped us to go up with them). If you go on October and November (like us) be prepared, because it is period of high tides in Venice and the Hotel is located in the lower region that may flood (we faced about 30cm of water on our legs because of it in the street, so we have to use waterproof boots to leave the hotel, but we heard that this year it was the most critical for Venice). Because of the floods, you may expect some stink coming from the bathrooms, but this happens in all places affected by the floods (like restaurants, was we noticed). Also, the walls are thin, so you can hear noise from the neighboors (if the other guests are not well educated).

I'm surprised there is no reivew for this apt. Nevertheless, we made a booking for 2 nights last nov. We travelled with 2 young children. The apt was in a very convenient location. From the train station / bus station (if arriving from airport), you can walk to the apt. This is easy as i cannot imagine taking the ferry with luggage. The apt is nice, as shown in the pictures. I really love the courtyard at night, as it really looks lovely . You can also easily walk to the main sights. While walking back to our apt, we saw many people peering through the windows to see the courtyard. In the morning as you walk out of the apt, you can see gondolas along the canal. The kids especially love the whirlpool bath. We had a greate time here and would not hesitate to recommend this apt. Booking was easy and fast through email. Thanks for the lovely stay.

I spent hours searching the internet for a really reasonably priced but stylish self catering accommodation, and stumbled across Residence Palazzo Odoni. They made us very welcome with honeymoon balloons and wine on arrival (!!) to the room which looked out over a beautiful canal. Very comfortable bed and stylish decor. It's best bonus was that it was a short walk from the train station and we had loads of bags and not so much cash for expensive water taxi's - so this helped us greatly. Very nice hosts, would heartily recommend, and we even took a gondola ride from right outside the Residence.

  • Liked — Views and the host
  • Disliked — Very limited cooking space... tricky to put 2 pans on at the same time!
