Me, my husband & 7 year old daughter had a lovely stay at Bucintoro. A very freindly, clean hotel in a great location.

My friend and I ended our Italy trip in Venice and were so glad we chose the Bucintoro.
We had room #203 facing the water and loved looking our both mornings we were there.
The hotel is a few blocks from San Marco Piazza -- a little ways from the busiest part of Venice, but still close and convenient. We felt very safe in the late evening walking back from where we ate. Our room was clean and comfortable, good closet space (2), and lovely bathroom! The staff was friendly and helpful; always glad to answer our questions, give directions and give recommendations if we asked. Would absolutely recommend this hotel and would stay there again!

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the water.

This hotel has charming rooms and makes you feel like you are staying on a boat. Even the bathroom was very nice. Right beside the lagoon, the views were beautiful. It was also easily accessible by water taxi. The staff there were great and really treat you well. If we ever return to Venice, we will definitely stay there again.

Ok just brief points- staff here are friendly, location is brilliant, quiet and great views. Rooms are a tad small. We had a superb room. It had a roof top terrace ( sorry there's just one room - 501 , that has that ) but the views from our kids room ( 404) were fantastic too. Decor is nautical and very stylish. Breakfast was great , just what was required albeit continental. overall , its well worth the expense, small , friendly and just lovely.

Room Tip: Eat nearby in Via garribaldi

This hotel is in an excellent location and it is easy to access the public transport and to walk anywhere. It is quiet at night and the views over the lagoon are excellent. I was staying with a friend and we had a twin room. We were disappointed that the twin beds were only 2ft 6" wide and very close to each other and this should be stated I think.. The room is well appointed and there is a nice bathroom.
Breakfast at the weekend was very good but the fruit was a little tired looking on monday morning. We had an problem with the water supply (which was due to be fixed) and the hotel staff were helpful in allowing us bottled water and on our last night upgrading us.
