“One of the best ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We have stayed in many a hotel, this was one of the best.
Small, friendly staff and fantastic location.
We were in room 501 on the top floor with a rooftop balcony and a view to die for. We could even watch the comings and goings on the €87 million yacht moored outside the hotel.
Breakfast was perfect and the facilities in the room all of great quality.
I have recommended to all our friends so it might book up soon!

We loved the hotel and the staff. Helped us with every request. Room 101 was great, but be forewarned about the bed being two singles pushed together. Also, the hotel is located directly across from a mooring point for large boats which can obscure the view of the lagoon, but not the city. Several very good restaurants located near-by.

Hotel Bucintoro is a comfortable, well-run hotel that provides a classic view of the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal. Located near the Arsenal vaporetto stop, Bucintoro is a relatively small hotel and provides a convenient, but less hectic location. It is about a 15 minute walk to St. Marks Square. It is located near a number of restaurants and a park. The staff were very personable and helpful. The rooms were well-appointed. Bucintoro has a small elevator, rooms have refrigerators.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the western side of the hotel to get a spectacular view of the Grand Canal, Giudecca...

We loved room 304. Quiet, spacious for two, lovely bathroom with all amenities. The view was spectacular and the hotel within easy walking distance of St. Mark's. Could not have asked for a better location or hoteliers. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was wonderful - varied, tasty and filling. The coffee was delicious and the juices fresh. We will come here again when we visit next time and thank all the staff for a fabulous stay.

My partner and I stayed here in May. Took a water bus straight from the airport and followed the instructions on what stop to get off at etc very easy to find. Was fantastically located just 5 minutes walk from st marks square so central enough but far enough to be away from it all. Room was fantastic and so were the views! Staff couldn't do enough for you and were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again when visiting venice next time.

I would recommend this hotel as being friendly and dead easy to find. I rang from home to seek directions and it couldn't have been easier. We got off the Vaporetto (waterbus) from the airport at Arsenale, turned right over a bridge, and arrived in 5 minutes.

It's worth asking for a room with a view of the harbour to view the giant luxury cruise liners that regular visit Venice.

The hotel is walking distance from St Mark's square (10 minutes) and you can happily get lost on the canals and side streets that are everywhere to be seen. A map is essential and it you follow the directions "per Marco, Rialto or Accademia" you can regain your directions fairly easily to major landmarks. Gondolas are a rip off at 80 and 120 euot for half and hour but I did see signs near st Marks at the harbour for cheaper rides.

Room Tip: Ask for room with view of harbour. There is breakfast but no restaurant facility and no swimming poo...

Before we went we found a brilliant website (Durant Imboden) that (among many other great tips) recommended choosing your hotel wisely – so that you don’t have to drag your suitcase down narrow alleys and over many bridges. And this hotel ticks those boxes wonderfully. It is just one wide bridge away from the Arsenale stop which is used by most of the vaporetti and also the Alilaguna boat that operates to and fro the airport. It is in the much quieter eastern end of the island, but just a short walk to the bustle of St Mark’s and other central areas. The nearby Via Garibaldi has several eateries and bars as do the various alleys behind the hotel/Arsenale. The rooms are on the small side (I gather all Venetian hotel rooms are small) but it is beautifully decorated (in the style of a classic ship – wood, brass and cream) and very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Check out is at 11am but you can leave your bags there for free if your flight home is later in the day. Breakfast is continental - but there is plenty there to give you a good start to the day – it is served in the small dining room where you sit quite close to your neighbouring breakfasters, which can give an opportunity to share tips and tales. Room tip – ask for the fourth floor and a view over the lagoon towards the Grand Canal and St Mark’s. Superb!

Room Tip: 4th floor looking west towards St Mark's
