“Can more than 1200 excellent reviews be wrong??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

That´s what we wanted to test when we have booked a three nights stay at Al Ponte Mocenigo.
We knew Venice from various day visits - but had always wanted to stay overnight in the city -
to get the real Venice feeling. And I can tell you: it is worth it. To make it short - all is true what
is written about this hotel. It is lovely on many ways. We had booked a standard room and it was
No. 44 in the annex. It was huge, clean and decorated in a way, that we felt "venetian" at once.
To have had a view on "our own" little canal was a special treat. We liked breakfast a lot.
It was continental with a very tasty fruit salad, yoghurt, muffins, croissants (apricot),rolls and
applestrudel - and wonderful coffee - in your choice. The stuff is absolutly freindly and helpful.

To get to and from the hotel from the airport, we had tested to different ways. On arrival we
did the bus/vaporetto version (12,-- EUR) and on the way back we took the alilaguna boot
(16,-- EUR as we paid on the boat). We liked the alilaguna version better. It is very convenient
as the San Stae stop is just around the corner - a little minus is, that you have to walk on arrival at the airport stop about 5 minutes to the airport building. But it is an easy walk.

If you are interested in modern Art, Ca`Pesaro is only two minutes walk away from the hotel.
We can highly recommend it. And of corse a dinner at nearby La Zucca is almost a must...

But nothing can beat a nightly (when all day tourists are gone) walk after dinner to
Piazza San Marco and than a trip on a vaporetto on the Canale Grande back to the hotel.
It is so wonderful - it´s hard to descibe - come and get the feeling!!

Room Tip: We liked room No.44 in the annex. It is huge and has a canal view.

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. I researched for weeks on somewhere for location, price and looks and we certainly were not disappointed with this hotel. The staff are welcoming and friendly. We stayed in the annex as when we originally booked, the main hotel was full apart from the room next to reception. I'd read that it could be quite noisy there, so we went for the annex which is just over the bridge to the other side. A very short walk to breakfast which every day was to a very good standard.
Brilliant place to stay for location (some lovely restaurants within a short walk too) and thoroughly recommended.

My Husband and I have just returned from spending four nights at this lovely hotel. I think we stayed in what you would call the Red room number 8. Decor ornate and richly furnished. Lovely room and spacious marble bathroom. We got the Alilaguna water bus from the airport, advisable to purchase a return ticket at the airport, it does work out a few euros cheaper. We got off at San Stae and the instructions given to us by the hotel were easy to follow and we arrived with no difficulty. Breakfast was fine with lovely croissants and fresh bread rolls every morning. A choice of different coffees were offered also hot chocolate. Walter and Sandro were most helpful with advice for anything you require. Umbrellas were available if the weather was wet. No English tv channels but that didn't bother us. The restaurant Muro, which I have written a separate review on is very near and excellent also La Zucca. We went to Murano and Burano by water bus, both well worth a visit, Burano was so pretty. If we return to Venice and I hope we will, we will certainly stay here again.

We stayed here 3 nights in winter. It is very conveniently located a few paces from the San Stae vaporetta stop. The water taxi from the airport dropped us right by there and from there it was literally just about 20 steps away. Just be sure to look out for a little sign and a VERY narrow lane on the left from San Stae about elbows' width as that's the alley that leads to the entrance to the hotel.

Our room on the 3rd floor was fairly comfortable. Don't expect 5 star comfort. The bedding was not as plush as we're accustomed to, but it was adequate. It was fairly charming and tasteful, and cosy. Bring your own bedroom slippers as none was provided.

Breakfast was typical European sweet breakfast of sweet croissant, cereal, fruit and cake. The croissants were excellent, and served warm.

Service is polite and helpful. We experienced aqua alta in winter, and there were plenty of wellies provided by the hotel and good advice given on weather predictions and areas where there was high water level predicted. We took their advice, donned the wellies and were kept dry and comfortable.

Whilst not the most comfortable hotel we've stayed in, it is charming and extremely conveniently located with good service. We will stay again if we're ever in Venice.

We rented a car from Avis on our last day in Venice, and pick up was just a few vaporetta stops away from San Stae where this hotel is. Ultra convenient from the airport, and for getting out of Venice.

This was our first visit to Venice and we had read all the good reports about this hotel. Pleased to say that the hotel lived up to our expectations. Great location and great hosts. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful room and excellent breakfasts. No hesitation in recommending this place.

Room Tip: We had a superior room in the main building that overlooked a little canal. Very peaceful.

perfectly situated for vaperetto and good resturants very close by friendly helpful staff even in a dull rainy march an absolute pleasure to be in venice and to stay in this hotel , a couple of tips , to eat well look at least 500 metres from the main tourist sites , do try a spritz , visit the pallazo a musica for a unique opratic experience but be aware that the 8pm start makes finding a resturant difficult as many dont open till 7pm , skip murano go to burano , ciao , enjoy .

Room Tip: ask for a good room

Stayed here for three nights with my mum, great location, room with two single beds was very nice in annex part of hotel. Exceptionally clean everywhere, and breakfast was a real treat you must have at least one chock muffin with melting chocolate inside..quite frankly the best EVER !
Very helpful with tours and any advice, handy for the water boats, I can see why this is number one - it deserves to be.. Well done to all the staff, wishing you continued success.
