“Fabulous hotel in great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We booked this hotel after reading excellent reviews and we're not disappointed. Everything you read in the reviews about the quality of rooms, breakfast, helpful staff is true. Just 3 minutes walk to the San Marcuola vaporetta stop on the Grand Canal and to the Guglie stop just around the corner in the other direction. The Alilaguna vaporetta service from the airport takes you to the Guglie stop. We enjoyed exploring the Cannaregio district, which is relatively quiet and unspoilt. Ask Luigi for recommendations of places to eat. It was nice to get back to the hotel for free wine and nibbles in the late afternoon. We did feel that the lounge room lacks atmosphere, which would be helped if some appropriate music was playing, rather than the TV

Room Tip: The rooms are very comfortable, but being Venice they're on the small side.

We really enjoyed our stay at Arcadia hotel in Venice. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Gave us great restaurant suggestions and pointers for the local attractions. The hotel was decorated very nicely and I loved the bar/breakfast room area! The breakfast was also very good. The hotel was about a 10 minute walk from the train station and we were easily able to walk there with our suitcases. We were also within walking distance to the Rialto bridge and other attractions. Would definitely stay again!

We (three of us) highly recommend staying at the Hotel Arcadia if you are traveling to Venice. The owner and manager, Luigi (a very charming, elegant, and handsome man), has created a beautiful, calm, and romantic place. The hotel location is perfect if you wish to experience Venice away from the "shopping mall" streets. It is located just steps away from the Guglie bridge in the Cannaregio district. We walked from the hotel to San Marco square and to all of the sights in the crowded touristy areas--and returned to our rooms in the evening, grateful for the peace and quiet of this lovely hotel.

There is an excellent TRUE Italian restaurant across from the hotel on the canal. Eat there! DO NOT eat at the "Italian" restaurant on the same side of the street as the hotel--located closer to the canal than the hotel. This restaurant (I forget the name) is not a true Italian restaurant and we were ripped off by the place. Ask the front desk staff, they will send you to the correct restaurant.

Speaking of the hotel staff, they were INCREDIBLY helpful, especially Ilaria (spelling?). She helped me reserve a water taxi for our very early trip across the Grand Canal to the airport. She also answered all of our other questions and was very kind. Her English is perfect--my Italian is, unfortunately, non-existent.

The rooms are beautiful. The bathroom was especially so--and spacious. Luigi has obviously put a lot of time, thought, and money into the hotel to create such a wonderful space. He also presents a delicious and fresh breakfast (included in the price) each morning. The coffee (his special mix) was the best that I had at all my stays along the way on my 15 day trip. Again, the staff at breakfast were kind and attentive.

Stay here. Avoid the hotels closer to San Marco Square unless you want to battle the tourists every time you step outside of your hotel. At the Arcadia Boutique Hotel you can see it all, go to all of the sights, and experience a more authentic Venice.

Thank you, Luigi, for your kindness and for making our stay so wonderful. You have hired a great staff. BLD

Room Tip: We were in room 54 and loved it.

I stayed here in Sept' 2013... they've put a lot of work into this hotel and it shows, the common areas, the rooms, were superb. The staff were excellent and passionate about Venice too, a short chat with the two gentleman on duty (on separate occasions) gave me more information on Venice than any tourist information. Yes Venice hotels are expensive, these rooms are good value for the price. They rooms are a good size, too. Highly recommended!

While in Venice to see the art and attend the Art Biennale I stayed here for three nights. It was accessible and right on a main thoroughfare. It was a two minute walk to the vaporetto and a five minute walk to the train station. Great breakfast, clean, classy with excellent service. Everyone speaks English and is very knowledgeable about Venice.

fantastic hotel, very helpfull staff. The best breakfast that I've had on my travels - in a stunning antique dinning room. The rooms are a good size and nicely furnished, fridge. The hotel is situated about 15 minutes walk from San Marcos square. Arriving to Venice by train , leave the station and turn left, walk about 5 minutes then cross the large bridge - keep walking ahead for another 5 minutes and you have arrived - it's not too far to pull your cases!!!

A fairly new boutique hotel close to the train station of Venice. You can walk to the hotel which can save you money taking a water taxi. We were personally greeted and attended to by the owner of the hotel. That was a nice touch which we did not expect. Very modern and new interiors in room. Behind the hotel is a quiet side of town where the Jewish ghetto is and worth visiting away from the busy crowd in front of the hotel.
