“Palazzo Guardi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Located in Dorsoduro, it is about 50-60m from the Accademia water ferry/vaporetto stop and the Accademia museum. The canal it runs along is the Rio San Trovaso, and it is located down a small alleyway, you will see a small plaque at the start of the alley and a plaque at the door. So it's quite easy to find if you use those landmarks.
Our room was separate to the reception, the gentlemen at the office led us to it once we checked in, it was only 2 doors down.
The area is a lot quieter than San Marco, but it's in a good spot where you can easily get to St Mark Square and other main areas.
The staff were helpful and accommodated any needs we had.
The room itself was very spacious, we didn't have a view of the canal, but it didn't bother us as we were out most of the day and night. The bed is comfy and there is a small fridge and lots of cupboard space, our bathroom was big and had everything we needed. Shower was hot and good pressure, lots of room too so we weren't cramped. We went in mid July 2015 so it was hot, the room had an air conditioner and kept the room nice and cool.
The curtains were a bit thin, they didn't block out much sun in the morning but that's really the only negative with the room.
The wifi was free and we had no issue with speed or it dropping out.
Breakfast was cereal, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, eggs etc.

The hotel is really handy, just a short walk from the Academia water bus stop. It is down a narrow alley but not as narrow as some of the reviews make it sound. There is someone on reception 24/7 and they buzz you in. You go up to the hotel in a quaint two person lift. The room we had was really charming and very comfortable. The staff were great. We really liked the hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. However, I would ask for a room on the upper floor as our room was on the same floor as the reception area and the breakfast room was just outside our door. I am a light sleeper and could occasionally hear the person on reception shuffling about. In the morning I was woken up as soon as the first people came for breakfast. Not a problem though, it made me get up and seize the day and make the most of our time in Venice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor and make sure you aren't put in one of the rooms in the next bui...

We stayed as a couple for 2 nights in July in a double room with canal view. The hotel reception, plus some rooms, are in a narrow street (Calle del Pistor) but our room was in another building about 30 metres away. The people at the reception desk were very helpful. Our room was not ready as we arrived mid-morning, but they stored our luggage and put it in the room as soon as it was ready. Our en-suite room was on the first floor with 2 windows overlooking the canal plus narrow walkway. Even though people were walking close by and there was a tobacconists underneath the building, it was quiet in the room and we weren't disturbed. The self-service breakfast was very good: croissants, eggs, cheeses, yoghurts, fresh fruit etc. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the canal.

We spent two nights at Palazzo Guardi exploring Venice after a cruise in the Western Mediterranean in June 2015. Located in Dorsoduro, right on the Rio San Trovaso, the area is a lot more quiet than San Marco, but yet quite convenient to get to the Square and sights after a short 15 minute walk. The hotel was quiet and the staff were accommodating to store our bags after a very early arrival and to ensure a quick early checkout on departure day. Our quad room was actually a suite with 2 bedrooms, each with a king sized bed. Perfect for our family of 4 with 2 teenaged girls who like their privacy and their parent s who also enjoy a little quiet time without the kids. The room also had a large and nicely appointed bath with full sized tub and shower.

Palazzo Guardi is very conveniently located, only about 100 meters from the Accademia bridge and museum, the Guggenheim collection and a short walk from Santa Maria delle Salute. If you don't want to walk to San Marco, take the short walk towards Santa Maria and hop on the traghetto across the canal to the Square. A gondola ride for just a few Euro! There is plenty of small shops and restaurants near the hotel and we actually liked browsing the shops here rather than dealing with the San Marco crowds. For those so inclined, one can walk from Palazzo Guardi to the Piazzale Rome in about 20 minutes to catch a bus to the airport, although we chose to hop on ACTV 5.2 vaporetto from Zattere. Clean, accommodating and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and per night it was less expensive than the hotel near the Piazzale Roma that we stayed prior to the cruise. Palazzo Guardi is certainly worth a look if you want a locale near to all the tourist areas but away from the hustle.

Announcing a "palazzo" and showing misleading pictures just as if this were a huge luxury palazzo rooms and view, this is just a neat 2 star B&B, with a standard rooms. The best part is that it is an excellent location, quiet and clean. However, there is no service, and breakfast does not offer any food for guests suffering form allergies or gluten/lactose problem. Very expensive for the offering. IM

Room Tip: better quality at surrounding 3 star hotels

Dear guest, we are very happy you have been able to verify the CLEANLINESS of the rooms.
The buffet is actually decently stocked and if you asked, we could give you all you needed for your allergy. In fact we provide gluten free food on request but you have not asked for anything and we are not able, for now, to intuit the allergies of our customers.
The palace is actually a Venetian palace, perhaps you were expecting something similar to Buckingham Palace....we are sorry but Venice isn't a metropolis.....

This hotel is in a relatively quiet area of Venice, in Dorsoduro, convenient yet well away from the busy area around San Marco. Hidden in a narrow lane, and in two adjacent buildings, the principal reception and rooms are on the third floor, up several flights of stairs, or else accessible by means of a curious but functioning lift (elevator). Some rooms overlook a canal, such as room #5 which is beautifully and traditionally appointed. An easy walk to the Accademia and the stop for Vaporetto 1 and 2. Also, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum is nearby. .

Room Tip: Get a large room with a canal view.

Our hotel room was very clean and comfortable. There were 4 of us staying in the room - one large bed and one double sofa bed, and we had plenty of room. The bathroom was very spacious as well. We each had a set of towels and our own supply of soap and shampoo. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They provided us with a map and some information on local restaurants and the surrounding area. The style was really quaint and charming. True to the listing, we did have a great view of a canal from the windows on one side of the room... it was really very nice! They also provided breakfast in a common room just a few steps outside our door. Although we were not in the main hotel (but in the building around the corner) we were not bothered by this and had no problems at all. We loved the view, and we were only on the 2nd floor, so not having an elevator was not an issue for us.

A couple of things to note... the place was just a little difficult to find, but we did indeed find it without calling them for assistance, so pay close attention to the directions and where you are going. Also, our room was on the corner of the building (again - not the main hotel) and there was a bar/club down the alley just a few doors down, so we did hear some noise late at night from some boisterous people leaving there; however, we really weren't very bothered by this because it wasn't too bad. (I should note that we stayed on a Saturday night and this area is close to the University area with lots of students... so this was probably the busiest night for the local bars/clubs.)
