“This has to be the #1 hotel in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Upon check in we were asked for our passports and given a complementary welcome drink as they filled out some paperwork. After finishing our drink, our luggage was already in our room and we were taken to it. The room was clean, modern, well-lit. The bathroom actually had a bathtub which is unusual for most of Europe. We were given a bottle of sparkling wine in our room (we booked it as such through their website but I think it was a deal where it was free or nomimal as I dont usually go for those type of things). The staff was always warm in their greetings and they must remember who shows up at breakfasts because at our first morning at the hotel instead of just a good morning, we also got a "nice to meet you" which we did not get on any subsequent trip to breakfast. The breakfast was pretty good with pastries, cheeses, fruit, and the option for omlettes and to make your own mimosas. We enjoyed eating our breakfast in the room outside of where breakfast was served because it was just more comfortable for us, but were were never forgotten about because we were not in the main dining area.

The hotel is also close to the train station, a huge plus for those not familiar to how difficult Venice is to traverse. The streets are not well marked and we actually found ourselves looking at the mcdonalds maps on the trashcans. Somehow, 10 minutes into our walk, we stumbled onto Hotel Moreseco. I had directions but a map is much better for Venice. I'd stay here again, no questions asked.

This hotel was our first stop on our brief tour of Northern Italy.We stayed for just one night. It is ideally situated less than five minutes walk from Piazzale Roma, where we got a bus to from the airport for €6 (bargain compared to the expensive water taxis and water buses)
The hotel itself is a perfect example of a boutique hotel, we arrived a little early and our room wasnt quite ready but we were given a seat in the beautiful garden and brought coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. We were then brought to our room which was beautifully decorated and came complete with a Nespresso machine. The shower was also amazing.
The hotel is away from the chaos of the main tourist trek but near enough that we were able to walk everywhere around the city. There are also a number of restaraunts around the corner.
Could go on but I think anybody who reads this will get the point, Simply amazing all round, staff, location, surroundings. Well worth the money (not just because my now fiance and I got engaged here).

I chose Moresco because of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. We arrived at the airport and decided to take a private water taxi directly to the hotel doorstep which was the perfect introduction to Venice. My husband and I stayed in a superior room which was spacious, comfortable and quiet. Oh yes, and a welcome bottle of Prosecco. The staff was professional, courteous and helpful. The breakfast was delicious including the fresh coffee/cappuccino and eggs if you ask for them. I loved the location of the hotel as it was close to everything but in a quiet area. I could not imagine staying too close to Piazza San Marco. Enjoy your stay and don't forget to get lost!

Room Tip: We stayed in a superior room with canal view, however, the building across from us was not Venetian...

A lovely hotel located only 5 minutes from the bus station at Piazzale Roma, yet far enough away to give a quiet hotel experience. The staff were very friendly, and the rooms were styled with a modern Venetian theme. Free WiFi was very handy, the breakfast was very good, and as part of our package we had a bottle of prosecco & a basket of fruit on arrival which was very nice! There are some lovely restaurants close by, and our favourite gelateria, Grom, was only 10 to 15 minutes walk in Piazza San Barnaba.

Room Tip: All rooms are different, so enquire with the hotel if you have a particular need for extra space, or...

After reading all the great reviews on Tripadvisor for the Moresco, we decided to spend our 4 days vacation there.
And everything you read in the reviews are true, the service is really good, similar to the service you expect in asia, but not on a european hotel.
From the moment you step in the door, you feel at home. The rooms and the interior are all renovated and working as brand new.

The hotel is perfectly situated, you can walk to all attractions, and the area is quiet in the evening and nights. We took a watertaxi to the hotel from the airport,
but it is not a problem to take a waterbus, bus or normal taxi to the Piazzale Roma, where there is a 5 min. walk to the hotel.

Breakfast is good, but you need to ask the waiter (he will also ask you) for any kind of eggs, bacon or pancakes. There is not a big breakfast buffet, but when you get any kind of freshly made eggs from the kitchen, you do not miss anything. The coffee is the best I have ever had in a hotel.

The bar is great for a short rest before dinner, or after dinner - plenty of snacks during happy-hour.

The room we stayed in, was spacious with great view of the canal passing by the hotel. Big kingsize bed, bathroom with big showerhead and good waterpressure.
Day 2 we came back to our room and they had installed a Nespresso machine, best thing after a day of canalwalking.

If you go to Venice in September, just beware of mosquitoes, they are really hungry at that time.

Highly recommend this hotel, going to Venice - no doubt stay at the Moresco.

We stayed here for 3 nights in May to celebrate my birthday. We arrived early evening to a warm welcome from friendly staff and were offered a complimentary drink of our choice and selection of canapés in the comfy bar area, which was a very nice surprise. We were shown to our comfortable room which had a modern bathroom and a luxurious shower. The room wasn’t huge, but it was enough for a short stay and the bed was very comfortable and big enough for 4 people - not that we tested that of course!. The hotel is very clean throughout and has some glorious paintings dotted around. The breakfast was delicious with eggs/bacon to order and a good choice buffet, as well as a glass of cava if you fancied starting the day off with some fizz!

The hotel is very convenient for the bus and rail station. Just a stroll away are some lovely restaurants, bars and shops, and its around a 30min walk into St Mark’s square, maybe less if you didn't continue to get lost like we did. But it’s a splendid walk, however long, passing through the wonderful lanes, over many bridges, browsing in the many many shops, eating in the wonderful restaurants and sipping away Italian wine in the variety of bars. That, as well as the amazing sights that Venice has to offer. This was my first visit and I was simply amazed at the whole place and I would definitely recommend staying at the wonderful Hotel Moresco to enhance your experience.

This hotel has recently been updated to include several "green" features as well as traveler conveniences. The hotel is computer wired to control use of electricity and a/C. If you open a window or door, your a/c shuts off. They can see which window you have open from their computer in the reception area. In the bathroom there are colored led lights in the spa shower which continually change colors, very soothing. There is also a hard wired outlet that accommodates either European or American electrical appliances..with just a flick of a switch. No need to carry converters. The lights in the hallways dim for energy savings & are on a motion detector. When you step out of the elevator onto your floor they brighten to allow you to see your way. Also there is an electronic pad on the wall next to each room door. Just hold the key in front of the pad and your door opens. There is plenty of room in the bathroom, much more than most European hotel bathrooms. Bath robes and slippers are provided as well as extra blanket and a room safe. All packed into a beautiful elegant surroundings. I've read other reviews that said you could order eggs and other hot breakfast items. We were rushed for time and would not have used this option. The continental items laid out were fine. Everything was fresh. From the main entrance to the courtyard garden, this hotel is a special respit in the busy city of Venice. And very convenient to the cruise port as well, just drop your bags and go out and enjoy your day in Venice. There is a Vapperretto stop just across Piazzale Roma only a short 5 minute walk. These boats will take you anywhere around Venice. Arriving by cruise ship is simple. Just get off the people mover and walk across the piazza and cross the one bridge right in front of you, turn right at the first cafe and follow sidewalk to hotel. You will not regret staying in this hotel. We've stayed in other hotels in Europe and this was the finest so far. When we left the hotel we ordered a car service to the airport. The driver will carry one bag. We had lots of luggage and this was a great help. We felt the fee was fair at E50 plus tip. The name of the car service was Blitz and our driver was Alexander. The vehicle was a new Mercedes Van with bucket seats and very clean. Very good. Dropped us right in front of our terminal. ---Tip- if you google map directions it looks like you cannot walk along the street in front of the hotel. This is WRONG. There is a sidewalk. The map is scewed because of a building overhang that covers the sidewalk. The hotel provides a great map upon check in. If you have time, ask them to send it to you before you travel.

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd floor or 3rd floor. There is an elevator. Specify Tub or Shower if you have a preference...
