“Good stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

The location of the hotel is pretty much perfect. Very close to San Marco and on the Grand Canal. It is opposite the gondola station and very close to the water taxi station.
The size of the room was pretty okay. I was a little apprehensive about the room size after reading otehr reviews here, but it was a decent enough size for 2, not tiny by any stretch of imagination.
Venice is a walking city and this hotel makes it perfect to walk to anywhere be it the Rialto or San Marco or Bridge of Sighs!

I would not mind returning to the hotel for my next Venice stay!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We stayed during Christmas week, having come directly from another Summit hotel in Rome. Great location, but a much smaller room. Plus, the same buffet breakfast that was included in the price of the Rome room cost 35€ each! Consequently, we ate here once. Also, the staff is not as accommodating. This hotel suffers from its comparison with a "sister" hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the canal.

Its our second visit to this hotel in the past 3 yrs. The location is excellent - the rooms are small but comfortable. The staff very friendly and helpfull. If you looking for a centrally located hotel this is your place to stay! Clean rooms with all the comforts u need but packing space limited!!!!

Returned last week from our third stay in recent years at this hotel. We just keep going back as it meets all our requirements. It's friendly, well-located, good value and comfortable. At present there are a couple of little repairs that are needed, no doubt due to a busy summer, but I'm sure these are on the list to do. This hotel's main attraction is its location so close to Palazzo San Marco and the view from the terrace. Breakfast on the terrace can take forever as you watch the world go by on the Grand Canal! The restaurant is not cheap, but makes a wonderful location in the summer for that special dinner. Having said that, Venice is not a cheap holiday location, but it is magical.

The hotel is very clean and ideally located near the San Marco square. We had a great time here. Staff are very polite. Has a very nice out door restaurant bang opposite to a Gondola station. Very pleasant.

Room Tip: You should choose this hotel if you go to Venice as your first choice.

I have stayed at the Monaco on several occasions and always come back with great pleasure. The location is very convenient and the views are amazing. But, beyond the location, the service is impeccable - Very friendly staff. The restaurant is not cheap (nothing is cheap in Venice) but the food is very good. Try to go when it is warm enough to eat on their terrace on the water.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Others have rightly commented that this hotel has superb location, comforts and style. If you have decided that the tariff of this category of hotel is within your means, then you may be pondering the possible difference between staying here or at similar hotels in Venice such as the Danielli, Luna, Gritti, Baur and so on. I have been staying at these hotels (and others) annually for the last thirty-nine years, but the Monaco has the edge. What is different is that the people who run and make ithe Moanaco work, from Manager to Chambermaid, actually like being there and doing what they do, and it shows to the benefit of the guest. I always feel that you can best judge the total 'culture' of a hotel by the litmus of 'The Reception'. Here there is none of the loftily superior, insouciant , theatrically slick and sometimes even arrogant attitudes that seem to beset hotels of this standing. The Monaco is run well and the professional care of the guest comes with heart. As with all establishments there can be snags, and I encountered some, but it was the way those difficulties were quickly and kindly ironed out that made the difference. If you want quality with care, the Monaco is for you.

Room Tip: Make your requests known.
