“Nice rooms,hard to find,good location,breakfast is a joke,but for the price is OK!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Dorsoduro is after me the best neighborhood in Venice.Palazzo Guardi is a 3 story building and half of it in an hotel and the other half is private apartments.Elevator is SMALL for an European for an American is going to be VERY SMALL.You can use it but without luggage!!The speed of the elevator is "romantic" and 2 people inside more likely if they hug will fit!Rooms are nice and a good size but breakfast is terrible.I've been in Venice 4 times now and I found other places much better in location and breakfast but those was much more expensive now and I choose this place for the price.
Overall was a nice experience with this place despite the fact that you will have to carry your luggage through construction area(mybe they finished by now!) but like I said Dorsoduro is a nice area,you can walk and enjoy a table outside on the promenade area 2 blocks away. By the canal is a small deli who sells cheese,salami and you can taste wine and is full with locals.Blend in you will like it.Some people are complaining about the noise we didn't have any noise but depends now where your room is located.If I go again in Venice I will try something else I cannot forget a 15 Century hotel that I booked in the past with fantastic views and gourmand breakfast for a similar price but was a promotion back then.

This is our second visit. It is just a few minutes from the vaporetto and only 10 minutes walk from the major sites and the station. However, as it is hte 'wrong' side of the grand canal it is not so expensive. The rooms are large and immaculate, the staff are friendly and helpful and unlike the ' cudafamily' review we have suffered nois on either of our visits. The breakfast is slightly better than the standard continental offering. Any return to Venice will be to this hotel.

The room itself was very nice, 5 beds and a very large bathroom...very rare for Europe. Breakfast was nothing special, owner or manager, same as the breakfast! The price not bad for the area. The room is located on a canal in a heavy traffic street. With that said, there was noise till probably 4 am, and then the church bells will wake you up at 8 am. The room was quite hot(in March) so we had to keep the windows open.

Room Tip: Don't have a room on a main street or walkway.

Palazzo Guardi is a most wonderful hotel, located in the best neighborhood of Venice, a charming interior in original italian decor, clean, quiet, great price, delightful breakfast, and staff are all extremely kind, friendly and accommodating. This is a place that makes you feel "at home" and a clear reason for our yearly return.
We have stayed at many "small pearl" hotels in Venice, but this is by far the best pearl of them all.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights (24-27 Feb 13) andhad an amazing time, location is quiet and ideally located for trawling the streets of Venice.
10 Minutes walk from the Bus/ Train station and on the doorstep of all the sights you would want to see in Venice and more.
There are plenty of eateries about, and many pizza shops if you fancy a lite lunch.
The rooms are large with a small fridge, TV and everything you could need.
I will be staying here again in the Autumn without doubt.
One bit of advice..... Take a padlock, not for the room but for clipping to the All' Academia bridge with you and your loved ones names penned on it.

We stayed at Palazzo Guardi for three nights and loved it. Thank you to Lucio and Irene. Beautifully decorated room, lovely and warm, good continental breakfast with fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereal and croissants. Excellent value for money. Great location for Accademia Gallery and easily accessible for all other sights.
I think other people who have commented need to be aware of the high costs in Venice! This hotel is great value, quiet, very comfortable & clean - what more do you need?

Room Tip: We paid extra for a room at the front of the hotel, overlooking the little bridge - so lovely and wo...

Stayed here in August at Venice's tourist height....a bonus was that it was away from the madness of hotels around the major tourist areas. The staff were friendly and helpful - however, it was a very basic hotel - rooms small, amenities minimal but maybe this is par for the course for small Venetian hotels? Our room was at the back of the hotel overlooking back alleys and rooftops -but rooms at the front nearer the canal lead directly off the dining area! Breakfast was mediocre and we only ate it because it was included in our room rate. We were on the second floor - the lift only fits in one person with a case and I doubt if it would fit in anyone who is in a wheelchair.

Room Tip: Back rooms overlook alleys, other rooms lead off the dining area. Lift small and maybe unsuitable fo...
