“Fantastic place to stay in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Have just enjoyed three wonderful nights at this truly lovely accommodation in Venice. The owner Mr Michele was fantastic and we really enjoyed his help and suggestions for a local opera performance, local eateries and assistance with our bags. The palazzo is gorgeous and exactly the type of place you want to stay in when in such a spectacular city as Venice. We loved the area around this accommodation and opening our shutters each day to a view of the canal was amazing.

The Palazzo Odoni is a large two-room apartment near the airport bus and the train station. It is an old residence decorated in traditional Venetian style. The first room included a kitchenette, a dining area and a sitting room with cable TV. (Italian only). The second room contained a very comfortable king size bed. The bathroom was rather small with a combination bathtub/shower.

We did not require many services but when we did, as when we discovered in Florence that our passports were still in the Palazzo Odoni room safe, the staff had them in our hands in just one business day.

The hotel, which overlooks a canal, is surrounded by many restaurants. As Venice is a very compact city it is easy to walk to virtually anyplace in a short time.

In short, I recommend this hotel highly.

Stayed here with my wife and daughter in June 2014 for two nights, was concerned at first that we were too far from Piazza San Marco and Rialto bridge. Soon realised this area had plenty to offer and the popular tourist spots were not that far away once we learnt how to negotiate the route to these places. Close to train station, cruise terminal and Grand Canal.
Rooms were excellent and the manager was polite, helpful and accommodating, nice views from our apartment down to the canal. Highly recommend this residence

Room Tip: Ask for a canal view

If you are after old world charm in Venice go no further. Michelle is amazing, most helpful and obliging.
The location is great for the water taxi, numerous restaurants and close to the rail & bus station.
Our room was more than adequate and certainly made our first visit to Venice a most enjoyable experince.

What we were looking for:

A nice apartment style accommodation in Venice, not too far from the train station, spacious with a view of a canal. Somewhere we did not have to rely on a water taxi.



General location:

A short walk from the train station and Piazzale Roma



Cleanliness:

Very clean. Top marks.



The Rooms:

We stayed in the Tiziano apartment. The residence is in a very old mansion decorated in true Venetian style. Our room had a master bedroom up a set of stairs. It had a lot of old Venice character. We had a kitchenette, a full formal dining room with chandeliers, full living room with several sofas, old paintings, lush draperies and large windows which opened to overlook a canal. The ceiling was probably 18 feet high. We loved the decor and feel, which was not unlike an old Hollywood scary mansion. We loved it.



Sleep and bed comfort:
Bed had very good comfort. The hide-a-bed could use a replacement, but that would interfere with the antique decor. We supplemented it with sofa cushions.
Pillows..... 4 out of 5.



Amenities:
Wifi was very good. The Residence does not offer many services which is fine, we didn’t really require any. A binder full of local information is available in the room. Our room was an apartment with small fridge, glassware and hotplate. We did require an iron and ironing board. Unfortunately they did not have those items available.



Food and Drink:
None on site, but coffee bars, pastry shops and restaurants are all steps away.





The Staff:

The proprietor Michele, was available and on hand daytimes during specified hours. He was very helpful with our luggage, as the residence has many stairs. He was very helpful before arrival through email as well.



The Crowd:

Couples & families.



The Vibe:

Behind the massive solid doors, is this authentic Venetian palace from the 1500’s, complete with antique paintings of the original owners and Venice. At night, they light the entrance way, stairways and courtyard with candles. It is quite beautiful.

Pros:

We really liked this apartment. It has a lot of character and it very authentic. It was like being in an elegant old mansion. The location is awesome unless you need to be on the Grande Canal. Being on the Grande was of little importance to us. For accessibility to transportation, dining, shopping or just wandering the pedestrian streets of Venice, it was perfect.



Cons:
The toilet seat was broken. In fairness, I only mentioned this item upon our departure. If we had been staying longer I would have mentioned it earlier, and I have no doubt that it would have been promptly rectified. It would have been nice to have a stand up shower, but this is an old mansion and the handheld in the massive Jacuzzi tub worked just fine.



Suggestions:
Have an iron & ironing board available upon request for guests.

Summary
:
An authentic, 1500's palace/mansion loaded with character in an easy location in wonderful Venice.

Stayed overnight @ Residence Palazzo Odoni during a short family vacation in Italy.

We booked a room for 5 (adults) and had nothing to say about the stay:

- The room was well appointed with a small kitchen / Big Bathroom with Jacuzzi
- Beds were comfortable
- The Room was clean
- Check-in / Check-out were very smooth and handled by the owner directly.
- WIFI Connection was fast
- The hotel is ideally located @ walking distance [10-15min] to the train station. Porters can be hired to help luggage.
- The breakfast was not included in our package (as advised during the booking) but there are lot of nearby restaurants and Coffee shops.
- Excellent value for money
- Highly Recommended

We stayed here for 3 nights with our two boys aged 10 & 12. It was an ideal location, close to the train station and out of the bustle of the heavily populated tourist areas. Good facilties for self catering and it was lovely staying in a historic building. A major supermarket is located nearby as well as a laundromat a couple of blocks away. Good local restaurants. A good value for money place to stay.
