“A good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We stayed at Hotal Gabriello as part of a Grand Circle tour. We enjoyed our stay as the location was very good, the hotel was clean and the personnel truly tried hard to make things as pleasant as possible for all their visitors. The ferry stops were right near the front door and St Marks square was 10 to 15 minutes (four bridges) away.

Because we stayed in the beginning of the tourist season we believe the hotel was still ramping up with their facilities ready. So we had some fun experiences. We learned that the elevator had a mind of its own so you had to constantly push the button to get the elevator to stop at your floor. We never figured out how to turn the lights on to full intensity in our room. So we had a few early evenings. And then there was the evening when the fire alarm went off for no good reason and we learned not to look for coffee before the breakfast time formally opened. The included breakfast was very good with lots of variety.

Room Tip: You have to go to the roof top garden room and enjoy a glass of wine while overlooking Venice. That...

Dear client,

thank you takiing the time to post a review of your stay. You pointed out the location of the hotel and it is with pleasure that I read it. Please let me state just the following: The elevators do not memorize several stops. If somebody presses the 3rd floor and you press the 4 th thereafter,
the elevator goes to the 3rd, you than have to press the 4 th again.
The light in the room is with a dimmer : If you press shortly the light turns off or on. If you keep the finger on the interrupter and press slightly the light dimms.
As far as the fire alarm is concerned it was really a bad coincidence. It was a false alarm but
it took some time to switch it off - I can only appologize for the inconvenience.

I Hope nevertheless to have the honour of welcoming you again at Hotel Gabrielli in the near future.

Best regards,
Hotel Gabrielli

The hotel location was perfect for us but what we paid for per night was definitely not worth it. We found the room not what the description was, the service at the desk was ignorant even though they were over staffed. We asked for a wine glass because we bought our own wine to drink in the room and got snubbed. Very rude. Plus house keeper didn't clean our room properly. Lazy. And cleaned them when we wanted to be in our room first think in the mornings.

Dear client,

thank you for taking the time to post a comment of your stay at Hotel Gabrielli.
I regret the hotel did not meet your expectation. Hotel Gabrielli offers a restaurant, a bar and room service. It is unusual that clients consume in the hotel room drinks which are purchased elsewhere. In case the front office staff did not explain this to you in a correct way I want to appologize for them.

We were delighted with our stay at this lovely hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, the breakfast was delicious and as much as you could eat. Our room was very clean and had all that we needed, with the bonus of a view of the water, which we hadn't expected. The location was perfect; close enough to walk everywhere or to pick up a water bus, but just out of the mad bustle of St Mark's Square. We loved it!

Myself and my wife stayed here after finding a good deal on bookings.com. However, i became nervous after reading a few bad reviews. I must say though that i was pleasantly surprised. THe staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room itself was very old fashioned, and our view was terrible as it overlooked a roof and a blank wall! (319). The breakfast was easily one of the best breakfasts and range of available foods that i have seen anywhere in Europe. Overall, i would recommend it as its location is so central to everything, and i would return.

Dear client,

thank you for posting a reivew of your stay and your sincere and honest comments of your stay at Hotel Gabrielli in Venice. If you want to have a view you won't ever forget I recommend to reserve a room with a view on the lagoon. But the hotel offers spectaculous views from the roof top terasse and has a perfect location in the heart of the city - so thank you for telling us that you enjoyed being with us and arrividerci a Venezia and at Hotel Gabrielli in Venice.

This hotel was a very good value. We were three couples travelling together for two weeks in Italy, and we were looking for a hotel in a reasonable range (something that's hard to find in Venice). So we were concerned that it might not be up to our standards. However, we found it to be the best choice we could possibly have made. The location is perfect; right on a major walking area, within about 15 minutes of Piazza San Marco. It has a dock right out in front as well as on the side; on the day we left, we asked the gentleman at the desk to arrange a water taxi for us, and it pulled up right next to the hotel and whisked us to the airport. The gentlemen at the front desk were invariably polite and helpful. The rooms were large, nicely appointed, comfortable and exceptionally clean and quiet. The breakfast, which is included, was very good and had lots of variety. And maybe best of all, there is a rooftop garden with tables and chairs, which we enjoyed every evening, watching the sun set across the lagoon.

I stayed at Hotel Gabrielli for three nights in March. It was my first visit to Venice and I found the hotel an ideal and convenient base from which to explore all the charms, wining & dining Venice has to offer. The hotel is not luxury, but it's nicely appointed, comfortable, charming and certainly in-keeping with it's surrounds. The bathroom amenities are nice. The breakfast restaurant is a pleasant start to the day with a reasonable buffet offering. I'd recommend this hotel for friends, family and colleagues visiting Venice.

This is a very well situated, comfortable hotel overlooking the lagoon, and about a 15 minute walk to San Marco. The vaporetto stops are almost right in front of the hotel.Though the furnishings are rather dated the bed was excellent, and the bathroom was in good working order. However in spite of the " free wifi" that they offer, we were lucky to be able to connect at all because the signal was very weak. So if that is important, then beware! Based on the one meal we had in the restaurant, we would not recommend you eat there, though the breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lagoon.
