Just back from 3 nights to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We chose the hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed - it lived up to all our expectations. As we wanted something special we booked the de luxe junior suite with lagoon view and it was wonderful. What views - down towards St Marks Square from the side windows and out to the lagoon from the front and fully opening windows. Wonderful to open the windows and enjoy the breeze coming from the lagoon (there was air conditioning) and watch the comings and goings outside. It was not noisy or mad, like further down towards St Marks, and we loved watching the joggers, the fishermen and the huge luxury cruise ships gliding by.
The concierges were really helpful, recommending fabulous restaurants and helped us book a trip along the Grand Canal. Thank you very much Stefano and Gianmaria. Breakfasts were excellent, absolutely loads of choice and variety. We certainly didn't go hungry! The breakfast and housekeeping staff were cheerful and friendly and always made a point of greeting you when coming and going.
Would definitely come back to the Bucintoro. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for and it was worth every penny. Understated, modern elegance on the edge of all the madness that is the heart of the main tourist part of Venice. Near enough not to feel too far out of everything, with easy walking to St Marks Square, but far enough to avoid the worst of the hustle and bustle. Wonderful!
