“Terrific Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This small boutique hotel is right on the grand canal. As mentioned in earlier reviews it's literally steps away a Vaporetto stop (which also serves as a stop for the Aliluguna transportation to and from Marco Polo Airport). It's close to Saint Marks, The Rialto, and the Academia Bridge, but peacefully tucked away from the crowds. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The breakfast service (7 to 10 every morning) includes a hot breakfast with lots of options. The rooms are lovely and comfortable. It also has a quiet bar with a lovely view of the grand canal in which delicious Venetian spritz drinks along with the usual staples are served.

The Palazzo Sant'Angelo in Venice is perfectly situated right on the Grand Canal, steps from a Vaporetto stop. Rooms are spectacular in typical Venetian style. The staff are friendly, all speak English and offer quality service. A small breakfast room serves a large buffet for guests; the bar is intimate and a great way to end an evening. Off the Canal, down a small street, visitors can walk to most tourist destinations. There are shops and restaurants within a five minute walk of the hotel.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite and you'll have a walk in dressing room. Unlike many European hotels, the ba...

My wife and I stayed at the Palazzo Sant'Angelo for three nights in late October prior to getting on ship to Rio de Janeiro. The Palazzo Sant'Angelo was just excellent. Wonderful service, fine rooms, very good breakfasts and a location that can't be beat in Venice. We were quite surprised by the daily flooding - - never heard of it before. The hotel staff, at our request, obtained knee high rubber boots to use for our entire visit. A very nice service touch, we thought. We'll go back to Venice, flooding or no flooding, and we'll definitely return to the Palazzo Sant'Angelo.

Room Tip: We liked our room overlooking a lovely square to the right side of the hotel. Very quiet in the mor...

My wife and I and two of our twenty something daughters stayed at the Palazzo Sant'Angelo in early November, prior to the terrible flooding that has recently occurred. I am extremely grateful to have picked this property as we were given the suite on the canal that we had requested and which is pictured on all of there PR materials. The view was unbelievable. It is located on the Grand Canal about a half mile from the Rialto Bridge. It is located right at a Vaporetto stop as well as a Airport stop. Further, water taxi's routinely come by the private dock of the hotel. The hotel also has a very upscale, totally different decor sister hotel across and down the river towards the Lagoon. I cannot stress enough how important it was that the hotel provided boots for all of us during the tide rise. Otherwise, we would have been bound to our rooms for the three or four hours that the flooding of the streets occurs.
while I cannot say enough good things about the hotel, the room, the breakfast buffet, the front desk or the bar staff; I have very mixed emotions about Venice itself. While it is stunning visually, it is probably the most incovenient place I have ever travelled to. Also, we have travelled all through italy, and for whatever reason, the general rudeness of the people who live there, but not the service personnel, was like the elephant in the room. Perhaps, they are tired of the inconvenience as well combined witht the Tourists.
Believe all the reviews on this property, it is 100% an outstanding property.

Room Tip: if you go to venice, you have to have a water view at least one night.

When you go to Venice, the star classification is not a criterion of real quality.
Palazzo Sant'Angelo is an incredible value. Triple rooms are very large with a high quality linen. All services are excellent and the staff very friendly.
I recommend it: it is directly on the Grand Canal and just 10 minutes from St. Mark's Square: Its location is very convenient with kids!

By chance with a British Airways Fly and Hotel package we came across the Hotel Palazzo St Angelo which turns out to be almost in the geographical centre of Venice, with it's own Vaporetto stop on the Grand Canal route. We found that you can get to almost anywhere in Venice either on foot or on the Vaporetto from St Angelo. Great Small Luxury Hotel of the World hotel with charming helpful staff and clean spacious rooms decorated in the Venetian style. The hotel also had a very nice bar right on the canal. Would definitely go there again and will recommend it to friends and family.

Room Tip: If you want a coveted room overlooking the Grand Canal, book early and ask for it.

What a great hotel! The room was excellent, though I personally might have preferred a bed not quite so firm. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, and the location was fantastic. It is less than 50 yards to the vaparetto and Alilaguna stop, a quick walk to several non-touristy restaurants in Campiello Morisini. Like so many places, it is a short walk to so many great places. Loved this place, and wished that we could stay longer.
