“Great staff, excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Our family stayed in two rooms for a couple of nights in the Montecarlo. The staff welcomed us warmly and professionally. We left our luggage at reception and went into Venice for lunch. When we returned the suitcases had been taken to our rooms.
The rooms were clean , warm and comfortable. The beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in.
Sometimes it is the small details that really impress and the housekeeping / room service at the Montecarlo really impressed us. EG Extra pillows being put on the bed ready. My daughter's small teddy bear (which travels every where with her) had been put carefully onto her bed and tucked in. The shutters on the outside of the bedroom window had been closed when we returned at night and the bathroom was spotlessly clean and tidy.
The reception staff were very helpful organising our return water taxi collection point and, just as importantly, they had a sense of humour.
All of this was set against the fact that on the day we arrived the hotel had been flooded out due to the Aqua Alta which had been exceptionally high.
All of our party agreed that the location was perfect for seeing the sights. When we take our next trip to Venice we will not hesitate to book the Montecarlo.

Excellent location close to all major attractions (can be confusing to find at first).
Step outside and you are less than 100 paces to entry to St Mark's Square
For those interested in shopping you are right in the middle of Venice's confusing alleyways of shops (literally hundreds of them).

Very spacious rooms with very good facilities.

Very helpful staff - always willing to help.

Breakfast very good and appetising.

This was our second stay at this hotel and we chose it mainly for its location which is in the heart of Venice tourist area but on a side street so we did not get the noise or congestion of St Mark’s Square. Front desk staff (especially Mimassimo and Dario) was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Hotel room was nice but in need of improved furnishings. There was an old love-seat (convertible to twin bed) that had a very ugly cover over it that did not go with the room at all. Breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of meats, cheeses, breads and pastries. The hotel did arrange a water taxi to Morano which required a tour of the glass factory. The tour was okay and there really was not a hard sales pitch attached to it but you know they were expecting you to buy something. Hotel also arranged, at our request, a water taxi to the train station and carried our luggage the block to the canal where the boat was waiting on us.

We stayed here for one night following a cruise. We wanted somewhere near St.Marks in order to make the most of the time we had. We took a waterbus from the cruise-port to the St. Marks stop. It is approx. 7 minutes walk,no road transport available although you can hire a porter with a trolley for around 20 euros.
Our room was very attractively presented and had a good en-suite bathroom with bath. All very clean.
Breakfast was served in an attractive room and was good and plentiful - Fruit and juices, cereals, cold meats and cheeses , a heated pan with scrambled eggs, a do-it-yourself toaster and pastries and muffins if you are still hungry!
There are many good restaurants very nearby.
A good place to return to after a day of sightseeing.I would be very happy to return.

Room Tip: Difficult as the room we were given was very good, but I imagine this was general.

Loved this hotel. Great location in the heart of San Marco. In the centre of everything. Old world rooms but quite adequate. Shutters on the windows were a novelty. Staff was always helpful and polite. Hot water in the bathroom was a bit hit and miss. Some bathroom floor tiles were cracked. Room was always clean. Turn down service happened most nights. Breakfast was great, lots of food and fresh fruit. Step out of the door straight into shops, cafes and restaurants. Minutes from st. Marks square. What more could a visitor want. Would stay again.

Lets be honest...our first time in Venice, one night, 36 hours, we needed all the help and advice we could get, and the staff at the Montecarlo were fantastic, they listened to our questions, and responded with great advice. The hotel is a 30 minute or so Vaporetto #1 ride down the Grand Canal from Santa Lucia Train Station, and a short walk through or around St. Mark's Square. Once there, you are in the middle of everything; St. Mark's Square, the well-signed walking route back toward the Rialto bridge, the St. Mark's Vaporetto stop, numerous cafes, shops, and a canal around the corner for gondola and water taxi pickup. Our room was beautiful and clean. The Hotel-recommended free morning water taxi ride out to Murano to a glass-making company forced us a little out of our comfort zone, but turned out great! Overall the Montecarlo and its great staff made us feel at home. We will recommend it to all our traveling friends and can't wait to go back for a longer stay.

I like the hotel so much I returned for a second visit. It is ideally located, St Marks Square only a couple of minutes away, within easy reach of Rialto too. It is set in a quiet location at the heart of the shops. the room are comfortable and spotlessly clean. If you left breakfast hungry it would be your own fault. The staff were friendly and accommodating. I doubt I would think of staying elsewhere, this hotel has everything I need and I feel comfortable and happy here. I would recommend it wholeheartedly for anyone who requires a comfortable and stress free time.

Room Tip: This is my second trip and both rooms have been fantastic. Quiet and spotlessly clean.
