“Lovely Hotel in Venice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The staff at the hotel always made us feel welcome and accommodated questions and requests. There were special touches in the rooms like chocolates and little easter eggs. The style of the hotel resembles a ship and this detail is beautifully carried out throughout the room. The location is also ideal for catching boats as well as taking a walk to St Marks square. Also felt a little more removed from the large tourist groups. Watching the boats go by from the hotel window was a real treat! Nothing to fault this hotel on. An added plus was waking up to the smell of freshly baking bread.

The room was a little small but aside from that all was good. Nice and clean, good breakfast, helpful staff and a location which is perfectly situated for the Vaporetti and within easy walking distance from the centre. Great view too. Book here.

We chose this hotel after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Great location just a few metres from the Arsenele stop from the airport water buses. Get off the boat turn right and it's right in front of you across the bridge. Really nice service from everyone at the hotel, from reception, the porter and the ladies serving breakfast were brilliant. We had a room on 4th floor with 3 windows a great view and didn't find it noisy at all. In fact we loved hearing the boats passing so much nicer than rush hour traffic. Not sure why the previous reviews have complained about boats and bridges ( you are in Venice).
Room had all we needed and more, safe, lovely bathroom, dressing gowns, slippers and so much more. There was also tea and coffee making if you wanted it and we had chocolate truffles and sweets on arrival as well which was a nice touch.
The location is very good very close to everything and quiet enough in the evening. You can walk to most things and we took the boat to Lido and Murano from just outside.
I cannot recommend this hotel it's a very very nice place.

Nice hotel - great service -- we liked it as it was a bit away from all the tourist attractions but close enough to walk everywhere.
Rooms were a good size for Venice.
Would stay there again, breakfast was buffet style and OK.
Not easy to find the first time - so bring your map :0)

We checked the previous reviews before booking and after spending 4 nights in a standard room found the previous reviews accurate, great staff, good lcation 10 minutes but 6 bridges to cross before you arrive at St Mars square and the Doges palace. good views from the room and everything was clean, plenty of variety for the buffet breakfast. There is however no facilities for making tea of coffee and we did find the room a litle noisy this was due to the boats loading goods to the hotels, therefore i guess all the hotels in this area will have a similar problem. Like many books say it is easy to get lost in venice which in some ways makes the hotel in a good location since it is near St Marks square and eveyone knows wher this is.
There is a cheap italian eating house (not sure if you would call it a restaurant) if you turn left out of the hotel over a bridge turn left and it is the first eating house on the right, many italians eat there which i always believe is a good indication.
I made it 4 stars because of the noise

We stayed three nights to celebrate a special anniversary. Having done a lot of research looking at other reviews, we choose the Bucintoro and weren't disappointed. Here's why:
1. Really easy to find, water bus or taxi from airport goes past the hotel and the vaporetto stop is minutes from the hotel so no chance of getting lost or lugging cases up tiny streets.
2. Slighly set away from the main tourist centre, so you don't step out your hotel into huge crowds, but still within easy walking distance.
3. Fab views of the lagoon (especially if you get a corner room).
4. A good nights sleep - comfy beds and sound shutters to keep noise and light out.
5. Nice buffet breakfast with friendly service.
6. Free wifi and printer so you can check out places to eat on tripadvisor and print off your boarding passes for the flight home.
7. Close to three nice bars with lots of locals and lovely Prosecco or Spritz.
8. Nearby walk up along waterside path (leading away from the centre) with children's park and grass if you want to get away from the crowds.
9. Room has a safe for valuables, hairdryer, fridge and kettle - all useful!

Only downside was our 'junior deluxe suite' had a rather small bathroom with a shower rather than a bath. Beautifully fitted out and enough hooks and shelves etc but just small. It also had a sliding door that didn't lock which wasn't ideal and kept sliding open. Not so romantic...

Room Tip: go for a room on higher floor for best views

This is a wonderful hotel. The location is great. Just off the beaten path, so away from the massive crowds of St Marks. 2 minutes to a vaporetto stop, 10 minutes to St Marks square. Great views of the open lagoon. We had the suite on the 5th floor which has a balcony onto the rooftop. Wow!! All by yourself with views of everything.
Friendly and helpful front desk. Delicious breakfasts were included.
