“Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Venice is expensive for everything but BW Montecarlo is worth it. Reception staffs are nice and helpful. We had a great meal with their recommendations! Room and bed are a bit small but it is very near to St Mark's Square.

Great location near St Marks Square, VERY nice staff, good breakfast, and total service!!! (EVEN TO OUTSIDERS) rooms were good size with windows that opened. Ours had french provencial style furniture (for 2 women) on the top floor. As a travel agent, I will always suggest this property for middle of the road, priced customers

Room Tip: Ask to be on a lower floor than the top if you are tall. Ceilings are lower on top.

I don't have anything to add to what other reviewers have said, really. The hotel is fine, but you might want to consider whether or not you want to be in the thick of things in Venice. Sadly, the city has become a kind of Disney World jammed with tourists, and this hotel is right in the middle of the most popular area. If you want to be somewhat off the beaten track where the streets are less crowded and where restaurants may be somewhat more authentic, then try the Dorsodoro or Cannaregio sections of the city. Venice is such a small city that everything is within walking distance or accessible by vaporetto.

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.
