“A classic Boutique hotel with amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We stayed at the Antiche Figure for 3 nights. It’s right across the train station, Forravia and very close to Piazza Roma. A 400 plus year old building that is very well kept up. The décor in the lobby was simple. Do not be disappointed by the small entrance as most hotels in Venice are small when you enter. The rooms are very well decorated and nice theme’s to them. The Manager, Alessandro deserves a special mention. He is a Venetian with a warm and caring personality. He takes time to answer all your questions. Gives great advice on restaurants, Things to do, where to shop, history, monuments, etc. He upgraded our room without even asking. The other person who deserves a special mention is Anca(or Anka) who is the receptionist. She is another good soul who makes every guest feel welcome. Walks you to the room, assists in setting up itineraries, and very helpful with shopping tips for the ladies. Breakfast is served 7 – 10 a.m. Typical Eurpoean breakfast with many different kind of pastries, cookies, breakfast meats, various types of breads, fruits, and also eggs. Cereal is available. They serve many types of coffees including Cappucino’s and Latte’s. Enjoy your stay here.

Room Tip: The suites are in another building and quiter.

Hotel is very near Rail Station, but across the Grand Canal (high bridge). We requested that a porter meet us on arrival and take bags over the bridge. He was right there when we arrived. In younger days we could have managed. On arrival we learned that the agent (Expedia) had not informed the hotel that we had reduced our stay from 5 to 4 days. We had to make two calls to get Expedia to fax a cofirmation so we would not be charged for the extra day. We made our reservations for other hotels directly with the hotel. Breakfast was good, but we had better elsewhere.

Room Tip: We made certain to get two beds since many European hotels give couples double beds (also called mat...

We arrived quite early - around 11 in the morning - and to our surprise, we could already check in. For an extra 30€ we upgraded to a larger room with full view on the Canale grande, which was really worth the extra €. Service and advice from the very friendly personnel was perfect. Our room was spotless and breakfast great. Only "downside": this hotel is located near the station, so not close to St. Marco square. But I actually enjoyed walking around in this less touristy area without the crowds and without being harassed. Given that the old city of Venice is quite small, it doesn't take you long to get to St. Marco anyway. Would highly recommend this hotel!

Location is very very important in Venice, and this hotel is just in front of the train station! All you have to do is cross one bridge (ok, not that easy if you have a lot of luggage anyway) and you're in.

We were very well treated by Chiara, super friendly. She offered an upgrade (for 30 eur per night) and we don't regret accepting it. The deluxe room was wonderful: big, comfortable, nice bath tub and very nice view of the Grand Canal. The room also have coffee amenities, and the breakfast is very good too.

Room Tip: If you can, choose a deluxe room with view of the canal.

My husband and I just returned from Venice, where we stayed at Hotel Antiche. First we were surprised that our room was not in the hotel on the canal, but in their newly refurbished annex in the ally, however the room had everything we want, need and look for. The very nice staff did suggest to move us if we are not satisfied with our room, but we chose not to after spending just few hours in the room. The room was extremely cleaned, spacious and comfortable. they always leave chocolate or candies on your pillow... we had coffee, the, and a fridge in the room. The room was extremely comfortable and calm. We highly recommend this hotel, the staff is extremely nice, and they go out of their way to make you happy... oh and the hotel has a great location! We loved it!

Room Tip: Some superior/prestigious rooms of this hotel are not in the hotel on the canal, but in a different...

Just spent three nights at this lovely hotel. Booked a canal view room which is worth the extra ( room 112 I think ) Very, very clean and tastefully decorated.They recommended a delicious restaurant just down an alley and round the corner (see Ostaria al vecio pozzo ). No restaurant in the hotel which seems commonplace for Venice which I guess is why it is only three star. Food is expensive so choose carefully where you eat. It also rained a lot. We noticed that the television only carried channels speaking Italian which, when we asked reception, they apologised for not telling us that they can switch something so English speaking programmes are available. If in doubt, Ask them, they are very accomodating.

One of my best hotel experiences in Italy.
Our whole family stayed here in July 2013, from our 80 y/o Mom to my 17 y/o youngest nephew, 11 persons in total. We got quite sized rooms, but all Italian traditional in good standard.
The staff was very helpful, and answered all requests and questions. Their advices for good places to eat were excellent. (BTW, check out Trattoria La Rosa Dei Venti).
