“Great location by Canal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

You can't beat this location for proximety to both the Canal and St. Marks. The hotel itself is very nice, decent sized rooms, there was 3 of us and if you just remember that you're in Europe and for what they lack in space they make up for in character and style. Our bed was equivalent to a King size and our daughter had a very nice twin bed. The bathroom was more than big enough and very elegant,tub and shower combo very interesting...no curtain or enclosure but once we figured it out..all good. The breakfast/restaraunt room is awesome with choice of both inside or outside dinning and a great selection of fruits, breads, meats and cheeses...love it. The front desk staff were top notch providing very helpful dinning spots and a very speedy check in.

Room Tip: Request a room facing canal if available, spectacular view

We were actually booked originally in the sister hotel (Villa Igea) and when we arrived, we were told that they had moved us to this hotel. After an 8-day Mediterranean cruise, we were looking forward to a quiet hotel for the night and being moved from the small side street hotel to this hotel on the main canal had us a bit worried. However we were pleasantly surprised - The room was such a wonderful surprise - elegantly equipped, quiet and luxurious. Additionally, the concierge and the gentleman at the front desk (Hans) were wonderful, helpful and a delight to work with. The location is perfect - right next to the hustle and bustle of the Canal and San Marcos, but also the crowds are easily avoidable if you'd like. My only complaint is that the breakfast at the neighboring restaurant the next morning was lacking (not much of a selection in the hot food department) but the coffee and pastries were good. I would definitely recommend this hotel in the future!

We were booked to be in this hotel. When we arrived, we were told that our room was not ready but they had a much larger suite in the back part of their hotel. They said we would be much happier there. We had two incredibly small rooms in Rome (we were traveling with our two daughters ages 12 and 14) so having a suite seemed like a good idea. I should have asked to see both rooms before agreeing. Instead of being part of this hotel, it was actually a different hotel. The other hotel (Hotel Igea) was two large bedrooms but they failed to tell me would have only one bathroom and that the air conditioning barely worked. If it hadn't been for oscillating fans in each room it would have been intolerable. When I complained, I was told our original room was gone. I have no idea if we would have liked it better if we had actually gotten the hotel we booked. Breakfast was average. Most people said they liked the staff. We refused to go to the island of Moreno and I felt like after we turned that down the staff was haughty and only minimally helpful.

We just stayed at The Savoia and Jolanda on 8/11-8/13. We found the location to be very convenient from the airport and to all major sites you would want to visit in Venice. The rooms (we had a party of 6 so 3 rooms) were all newly renovated and really beautiful. Front desk staff was extremely helpful (especially Tomas (sp?) who helped check us in) and very friendly. The only down side was the waitstaff at breakfast was fairly rude, I guess it's silly to complain about something that's "complimentary" to the stay, but it shouldn't be noted as "needs improvement". Despite the service, the food was great!! Overall we had a very positive and enjoyable stay!

The location of this hotel is ideal--situated on the main street right across from the water. The rooms are small and our room had no view to speak of, as we looked out onto the other building in the alley. The shower head in our tub was located in the center of the tub instead of on either end which made showering a challenge, but aside from this, the hotel was nice. The restaurant at the hotel was not great though. Outdoor seating can be lovely but this place has too much foot-traffic off the street. There are plenty of other restaurants on this street that are walking distance, however, and that offer more of a separation from your table and the pedestrians walking around. The hotel offered complimentary buffet breakfast in the morning and had a fairly good selection of options. I would recommend it to someone who wants to be by the water, in a busy location. We walked to everything--San Marco Square was less than a five minute walk from the hotel!!

Room Tip: Ask if you can get a room that faces the water or that does not look out onto an alley. That may hel...

We took the Blue line boat from the airport and it stops directly in front of the hotel. Originally they booked us into a logoon view room but not the lagoon view balcony suite we had reserved. No problem. They moved us to another suite with it's own rooftop deck with a 360 degree view of the lagoon and the rooftops of Venice. Unbelieveable views. The best imaginable. They even gave us a complimentary bottle of Proseca for our troubles. Great service. Renovated rooms and hallways. We took the complimentary tour they offer to Murano in a private water cab. Breakfast is in a beautiful waterfront restaurant right in the heart of the action. It includes custom coffees like cappuchino. The location is 2 blocks from San Marco and a block from the Doges palace. Couldn't be better. The boat drop offs are right in front of the This hotel is a great value for Venice.

Clean nice room, excellent service. great breakfast-- my 13 yr old son described the croissants as 'heavenly'! and he is not one to wax so poetic. Wonderful location next to St Marco plaza

Highly recommend this terrific boutique hotel.
