“EXCELLENT LOCATION - lovely hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2009

My husband and I stayed at this hotel fo 4 days in September 09 and found it to an excellent and very clean hotel. The location is brilliant, not up near the busy/touristy Rialto bridge area but all within walking distance. It is on the (airport water bus route) - the water bus stops within 10 meters of the hotel (great when you don't know where you are going and are lugging bags!) It is very quiet and pretty. I loved it and will go back there to stay with my Mum who is coming to visit me next year. The breakfast though is the only downside, it was very disappointing - the breads are frankly awful and not a good range available. It is not a cheap hotel so I think they should offer guests a lot better breakfast.

I spent one night in Venice with my boyfriend, and was delighted to have found such an amazing hotel. We arrived very early, tired from our overnight travel and hot from the humid August weather, and was welcomed by a cool, air coniditioned hotel with the friendliest staff. The hotel wasn't fully booked, so they upgraded us to a Junior Suite, which was above and beyond my expectiations. The suite overlooked the Grand Canal and was incredibly romantic. My favorite thing about this hotel was the location. You are a bit away from St Marks, but everything is a short walk away in Venice so it really doesn't matter (although the narrow/winding streets are confusing). It is so quiet in this area because there aren't millions of tourists running around. The other bonus is that there is a water bus stop right outside the hotel, which makes getting to/from airport and train station very convenient. Some may say this hotel is a bit expensive.....but if u can splurge in one city, let it be Venice. You can save yourself a ton of money if you skip the gondola (130 euro an hour!!!!!!!) and take the water bus instead of the private water taxi from the airport (90 euro vs 13 euro). Breakfast was one of the nicer ones we had in Italy. Enjoy!!!

We recently spent a weekend at his hotel. It is in a great location in Venice and our room did have an amazing view of the Grande Canal, though at a high price. We were disappointed with the breakfast - the bread was very poor and the toaster the slowest I've come across.

Mostly the staff were very helpful, especially those in the breakfast room.

The thing that really grated with us was around internet access. We were keen to use the internet, mainly to check in and print boarding passes and were very shocked to be told that there was a charge of three euros per hour to do this. Given the high cost of the rooms, this gives such a poor impression. We found an internet cafe instead.

The bar was very expensive and we would agree with previous comments that the 'nibbles' offered with drinks were poor quality.

Overall we were disappointed, especially given the very high cost of the room.

This hotel is situated on the Grand Canal with it`s own private jetty which is great when arriving by water taxi as you do not have to manage your cases up and down narrow streets and bridges.We had a small very quiet twin room with a courtyard view. The beds where comfortable with lovely soft fresh linen. Fab modern bathroom with hydro- bath which was great to revive you after a day of sightseeing. Excellent central location for all the main attractions. All the hotel staff where very professional and spoke excellent english. My only complaint would be that the rooms had no facility to make tea or coffee. Had a lovely 4 days here and we really enjoyed sitting out at the front on the hotel in the afternoon with a bottle of wine watching the world sail by.

This hotel gets great ratings and they are well deserved.

We stayed for 4 nights, arriving at the train station and taking the vaporetto (water bus, #1 line - local) to the Sant' Angelo stop. How wonderful to find the convenient location wasn't wishful thinking from some copywriter's pen! It's hard for me to think of a $560 room as a great value, but the rules are different in Venice. The location simply cannot be beat -- Venice isn't that big to begin with, but you have most of the major sites within a 15-minute walk.

We stayed in a junior suite with a courtyard view. It was quiet as a tomb, with double-pane windows that opened for ventilation. The bathroom was modern, with double sinks and while not spacious by American standards, a darn sight better than 90% of what you find in Europe.

The breakfast buffet was acceptable for a hotel of this class -- a normal central European continental spread, with bacon and scrambled eggs for the British and American guests (the eggs were not warm, so be aware.) The hotel has a small lounge with canal-side tables for a drink or nightcap. There's no restaurant to speak of, but given its location, that's not a problem.

The staff had lots of recommendations on dining locations and is up to date on tourist site status, and their map is reasonably detailed enough for you to find your way through the habitrail that is Venice.

The staff is extremely accommodating and goes out of its way to make the guests comfortable, and this spirit affects everyone on the staff from the chambermaids to the general manager.

All in all, a great place. If there was a restaurant that matched the rest of the hotel, it would be a 5-star for sure. We will definitely return.

I recently stayed at this hotel for 1 night after our cruise ended in Venice. I would agree with the reviews on this site that the hotel has an excellent location. However we did experience one problem with the air conditioning. The room we had was on the 4th floor (room 47) and the air conditioning in this room didn't seem to be working. I reported this to the front desk and they responded that the hotel was full but they did bring a fan to the room which was appreciated. I would suggest you ask for a room on a lower floor.

The hotel also has a happy hour from 5 to 8pm but the food that was put out was really just chips, cheese and a few vegetables. It was nothing elaborate and the drink prices in the bar were very high. We spend $30 for 2 drinks while visiting their bar during their happy hour. That seemed high even for Venice.

I do agree the breakfast was good and the service was excellent. The hotel did book us a private taxi to the airport and was very helpful in answering our questions.

Yes, I would probably stay here again but would make sure I'm not booked on the 4th floor.

The Palazzo Sant' Angelo hotel is situated directly on the Grand Canal, steps away from the Sant' Angelo vaporetto stop, and it also has it's own dock if you wish to hire a private water taxi. This is very important, because everywhere you go in Venice is by boat (vaporetto) and once you hit land, it's all on foot. So the last thing a weary traveler wants to do, is traverse narrow (but beautiful) vias and pathways with luggage in tow, as you try and find your Hotel. The staff was extremely professional, friendly and attentive and they all spoke excellent English. Stefano checked us in and set the tone for a wonderful stay. He was quite helpful, as was everyone we came in contact with. The room we were in was not on the water, but had a great view of a courtyard. Beautiful furnishings, a comfortable bed and a very large bath made our stay quite enjoyable. A great breakfast was included in our rate, but the location is adjacent to many fine restaurants, all within walking distance; including easy access to Saint Mark's, the Rialto and the Academia bridges. We don't think there's a better location; by day it offers stunning views of the Canal, and by night offers a gorgeous place to stroll. The rates were slightly expensive (but what isn't in Venice), but comparable to other four star hotels. However, with that price came remarkable value. When we return to Venice, and we will, we'll be staying here. Ciao.
