This hotel is so cute and ornate. We got to our rooms and it was so beautiful. We also really loved the bathrooms. The staff are really lovely too from the waiter in mornings to the cleaners cleaning the rooms. Breakfast was nice as well. They give you the choice of eggs and or bacon your own way.

It is about 10-15 mins walk to Rialto but its a nice walk. It is also only a short walk to/from the main bus and train station. So a tip would be too take light luggage or a backpack as there aren't really any ramps on the way An there are two foot bridges with stairs (not to mentions the seemingly hundreds of stairs if you're walking to the train station) and you'll literally have to be lugging all the way.

With Venice as our first stop on our honeymoon it was a pleasant surprise to arrive to Hotel Moresco. We stayed here for three nights and they were very welcoming right from the start. Our room was high end, spacious and clean. The location was very good as well, nothing over a 20 minute walk. A special thanks to Alex who always went out of his way to take care of us. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through Venice.

We stayed here on honeymoon for 3 nights @€160 per night, and was well worth it.

Great rooms, lovely shower, comfortable bed, large room with tv, fridge etc. Air conditioning and safe. Views of the canal. Cannot be faulted.

The location is excellent, we made it 5 mins walk from the Piazzalle Roma bus stop (and 5 mins back to the Roma vaporetti stop). Also quite easy to find if you can read a map! Close to many lovely restaurants / bars.

The hotel service is excellent, made to feel very welcome from the start, when they found out it was our honeymoon we were sent a complimentary chilled bottle of prosecco to our room. (This was after our glass of prosecco when we arrived!) . Breakfast was great and served until 11am so we didn't have to worry about getting up too early.

In summary, cheaper places are available, but all things considered an excellent hotel with very high standards, well worth it.

We are sitting in the peaceful garden at the end of a 3 day, 2 night visit to Venice staying at the beautiful hotel moresco. We just had a basic double room which was not that big but not at all too small, everything about the room is as if the hotel opened yesterday, the bed was perfect, sheets like new and how you keep a bathroom and shower looking like new I have no idea. Everything is top quality. The staff are, as mentioned in other reviews, really friendly and helpful, the hotel has a nice relaxed feel, you are on holiday, whatever you want is no problem. We got the water taxi from the airport, this was our first visit to Venice and this did get us off to a great start, we are catching the bus back, 5 minute walk from the hotel and 7 euros each, we think it might even be included in our daily water bus ticket. We spent our last hour on what I have to believe was the best gondola ride in Venice. Our gondolier Luca took over his fathers 70 year old gondola 18 years ago, spoke great English but the route he took us on was simply perfect. He is based in the ghetto area north of the grand canal, easily our favourite part of the city. We went for 1hour, covered the length and breadth of the northern canareggio area but also crossed the grand canal and went into the more central s.croce area. I am not exaggerating in saying that for at least 80% of the time we were gliding silently along canals twice the width of our boat with not another living soul in sight. It was like Venice had closed and we had the place to ourselves, which is all the more incredible given how crowded every square inch of street is. He gave us his card, luckyluca6@hotmail.com, mobile 3405116063, I am sure the hotel could get hold of him for you, we have just been joined by a couple talking about their gondola being in a traffic queue! Back to the hotel, the location is really good, it is far away from the p st marco, the farther you are from there the nicer Venice gets. The hotel recommended and sorted us out a table at a restaurant called Ribot, will try and review separately but wow, peaceful tree covered garden, more incredibly friendly people but mainly quite stunning food and a lovely bottle of local wine. 3 courses and wine for a little bit more than a lunchtime pizza and beer near p st marco, admittedly this is as much to do with being thoroughly fleeced at lunch. Lunch today at the edge of a quiet canal just north of the ghetto, could have sat there all day. Getting around Venice is really easy, would recommend walking but get off the main routes, you get a much better feel for the city.

We loved this hotel and would definitely stay here again! From the moment you enter the hotel you feel welcomed and comfortable.

There is cute little bar located next to the foyer or if you prefer there is a garden courtyard to relax and have a few drinks.

All the staff provided excellent service and were very friendly.

Although arriving at the train station and then walking to the hotel over a couple of bridges it is a little daunting when not knowing where you're going, the hotels directions were great and it was so easy to find.

The showers had coloured LED lights that changed to many colours when on.

I had a few basic criteria when it came to looking for a hotel in this city, most of which are shared by fellow first time to / cruise ship from, travelers in Venice, so in the interests of brevity, here are my bullet points:
- Water taxi access right outside the front door: check;
- Close to the cruise ship docks: check;
- Away from the suffocating crowds but close enough to be able to easily get to the main attractions: check;
- Free wifi: check;
- Air conditioning: check.

Ok, so that covers the basics. My personal requirements were a bit more specific as my husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary, and I wanted to ensure a memorable experience, but could never have anticipated how wonderful staying at Hotel Moresco would be!
- Firstly, the staff are absolutely amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, and we always felt like valued guests - the friendliness, professionalism and care taken by the team really made a huge impact on us;
- Then, the attention to detail in the decor is superb! From the bedrooms to the inside dining area to the outside courtyard - everything was just beautiful. We stayed in room 109 and were captivated by the colour changing lights in the shower - so unique and unexpected;
- After a few hotel breakfasts, I have gotten used to the same-old, same-old over the years, but here I had most of the usual options (although possibly a smaller selection than larger hotels but completely adequate to set you up for the day), as well as - wait for it - a choice of delicious cakes and prosecco. Nothing wrong with starting your day with 'champagne' and orange juice! And it would be remiss of me not to mention the awesome cappuccinos.

In conclusion, our stay at this hotel was wonderful, and we certainly got the quality experience we were hoping for. I would highly recommend this fabulous spot to travelers to Venice!
