“Beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Absolutely stunning hotel. Nice breakfast that can be taken in the small but pretty and quiet garden. Room and overall décor amazing, lovely attention to detail. Location quite good, close to gondola crossing to Rialto market.

My husband and I stayed in Palazzo Abadessa hotel for 3 nights. It was extremely clean, quiet hotel and beautiful area. Our room was on the first floor overlooking the hotel garden. The bathroom was nice but cold. The room itself was lovely decorated but small. The complimentary bottle of champagne and fruit in our room was a nice welcoming. Hotel location was fine. I recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed in Palazzo Abadessa Hotel for 4 nights (12th to 16th March) for our 30th wedding anniversary. The hotel was beyond our expectations - extremely friendly, helpful staff, beautifully decorated rooms in old venetian style - a true palace! The complimentary bottle of Prosecco and bowl of fresh fruit in our room was a nice touch. Our spacious (classic) room on the ground floor was cosy, warm and homely and overlooked the canal and bridge. Excellent spacious shower, fresh towels daily. Cleaning of rooms was of a very high standard too. Breakfast was amazing - great variety of fresh fruit, fruit juices, cereals, bread rolls, hams and cheeses etc, beautifully presented buffet style.The hotel's pretty garden is a nice place to enjoy your breakfast or unwind with beverages if the weather allows! Excellent location in a very quiet, picturesque area and close to Strada Nuova (which has a great variety of shops and restaurants and even a McDonald's!) and the Ca D'oro vaporetta stop. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone and we would stay here again and again if we return to Venice! Totally worth it!

Room Tip: We stayed in the 'classic' room which was on the ground floor, just off the main hallway wh...

Several of our art history group stayed here during our time in Venice and once again were hugely impressed by the beautiful rooms and wonderful service in your hotel. Thank you very much - we look forward to our return!

The decor was incredible as were the friendly, professional staff. The Concierge had an excellent knowledge of the island, regional highlights and current events. I would highly recommend this establishment to those looking for a top quality place to stay in Venice.

We're very glad we stayed at this hotel. Our room, number 16, had a nice garden view, a pretty ceiling with large beams, Murano lamps, and 2 couches. You could occasionally hear guests outside since we overlooked the entrance, and there was occasional muffled singing and some athletic sounds (I guess we were next to a small school), but it was never a problem. Our two morning hosts, Darwin and his father, were extremely friendly, and the breakfasts were good. Our friends stayed one floor above in room 24, a very pretty room with damask (?) wallpaper, a very pretty chandeleir, and a pretty and original fresco ceiling from the 1600's. They didn't have a garden view, but they didn't mind. Our free bottle of prosecco was a nice treat, along with the fresh fruit bowl. This hotel, only a 5 minute walk from the Ca d'Oro vaporetto stop (where you can get on the number 1 vaporetto all day to go up and down the Grand Canal), is a pleasant and elegant surprise with its pretty antiques and pretty garden. We would happily stay here again.

This is a great hotel. Very easy to get to hotel with the directions they provide. From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful and polite. The decor is lovely and reminds you of Venice's glorious past. The Managers (father and son from the Philippines) bent over backwards to make our Honeymoon memorable and they upgraded us for free as we requested a room with a canal view and they couldn't provide that. The buffet breakfast was beautifully presented and had a wide range to choose from. Location wise it was a 10 minute walk to San Marco Square if you know where you are going. We didn't so it took us awhile however we saw a lot of Venice by stumbling around. We recommend this hotel to anyone.
