The hotel is overpriced for what it is, or for what you would get for the same price in a different city, but this is Venice, and unless you want to pay a lot of money, you're not going to get the hotel you feel you should for the amount of money you're willing to pay. That being said, the Palazzo Guardi is a nice hotel, in a really good location, Our room (Arsenale - the red one in the hotel photos) was overlooking the canal, which I loved and was spotlessly clean. Could have done with better pillows and more of them, no iron or ironing board in the room, complimentary toiletries not great (no conditioner or shower gel), also, the wifi didn't work in our room, but these aren't big things. Overall the hotel has a 1970's feel, but I actually quite liked that! I thought the breakfast wasn't great, but there was enough to fuel you up for the day. I guess if I'd paid less for the hotel, I would say it was great, but I feel that for the amount they charge, they could provide more comfort and better service (quite indifferent/grumpy lady on reception). But this is just my opinion, ask my husband what he thought and he'd say it was a great hotel and he loved it! So, as with all reviews, it's totally subjective and I would give this hotel as a recommendation, but with the caveat that it is overpriced. But I guess that's just Venice and I'd stay here again if I came back to Venice.
The restaurant downstairs is really good, this is not part of the hotel by the way. Hotel is very easy to find from Zattere stop or Academmia stop. The directions on the hotel's own website are accurate. Allow for 1.5hrs journey from airport to the hotel (we came by the Zattere stop).
