“The Best of Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

We've recently completed our 2nd stay at Al Ponte Mocenigo..booked for our 3rd stay..Walter and Sandro operate an elegant,
palazzo on a small canal just off the Grand Canal in the peaceful neighborhood of San Stae. A lovely sanctuary from the hub bub of Venice, both staff and management are on the same page in terms of service, efficiency and cleanliness. A wonderfully presented breakfast just adds to the perfect experience of this One of a kind hotel in Venice....we highly recommend it on every level...

My husband and I stayed in Al Ponte Mocenigo in 2012 and we were very satisfied.
I would highly recommend this hotel.
The staff was wonderful, gave us lots of tips for our short stay in Venice.
The rooms were very clean.

My husband proposed to me in Venice and the staff gave him recommendations about wonderful places in the city.

We just finished our best ever vacation and it included a two night stay at the Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo. We booked the stay almost a year ago based upon the reviews on trip advisor. Our experience lived up to the glowing reviews we read then. The hotel was extremely easy to access. We arrived by train and took a water taxi to the water entrance for the hotel. With our luggage and the age of some of the travelers, it made it so easy. During different times during our stay, we used the standard water bus and it was an easy walk to the entrance from the San Stae vaparetto stop. The hotel was small and quaint. We had the room next to the registration desk. It was nice size and had a more than adequate sized bathroom (shower only). We never heard any noise from the desk and it made it easy to navigate because there was no stairs to go up and down to get to our room. Other members of our group had premium rooms upstairs. One couple had a balcony over a secondary canal for the higher price. We did not feel that we missed out on anything. The morning breakfast was served in a beautiful courtyard just outside our door. The hotel offered free Wi-Fi of which we took advantage. We booked a private tour guide through the hotel which happened to be the wife of one of the owners. She was fantastic and well worth what we paid her. We were able to visit the non tourist areas of Venice and got to see how ordinary residents lived along with very detailed information about the key sites in Venice. The owners were helpful in so many ways and really made our stay there comfortable and memorable. For example, the first night we were tired so we asked for a restaurant recommendation close by. The restaurant recommended was not only close, but gave us a wonderful meal experience as we sat outside under the moonlit sky watching the people stroll by. There is no doubt that we will return to Venice and we will make sure that we book the Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo for our next stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms I saw were great. Room 1 is easily accessible. Room 5 has a small balcony with a vie...

My two daughters, grandaughter and I recently returned from a very enjoyable 12-day Meditteraean Cruise which originated in Venice. My granddaughter made the reservations and was already there when we arrived. Safely to say she couldn't have chosen a better hotel - our rooms were decorated in Venetian style, spacious and overlooked the canal which kept them cool at night. Also, there was free Wi-fi connection. Thank you to the staff for providing breakfast in the courtyard that consisted of fresh fruit, fresh pastries, cereals etc, more than you could eat.

Many thanks to Walter and Sandro for their kindness and going the last mile for us during our stressful time - it will never be forgotten....not going into details but you know what I'm referring to!

Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo, located in the heart of Venice, occupy two levels of a finely retored building in a lived-in-neighbourhood that is rich in history. There are no elevators; however, there is always help with baggage.

For those of you who are interested, it is easy to find. From the airport we took the airport bus and then the #1 river bus to San Stae Vaparretto stop. Once there, the hotel is a couple of minutes walk and within walking distance of Rialto and San Marco. This hotel is highly recommended!!

Tip: It was very convenient for us to take a water taxi to the ship because it came directly to our hotel door and directly to the ship dock.

Many thanks to walter, Sandro and their staff for helping make our stay in Venice a very memorable one. We look forward to return again to enjoy your wonderful hospitality and the beauty of Venice.

Sincerely,

Vi Holmes & Family

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter

A stone bridge over the canal leads you to the hotel door, where we were greeted by a very charming and knowledgeable gentleman. Our rooms were great, right on the canal. So cool. They had an amazing breakfast every morning with freshly made hot croissants! Easy to find, and close to the vaporetto station. We loved this hotel and would recommend it highly.

This was our second stay at this hotel, having stayed here five years ago on our first visit to Italy. It is still a wonderful hotel with spacious rooms, friendly service, and great free wi-fi connection. The location is very practical--close to vaporetto stop and within walking of Rialto and San Marco. They give good restaurant recommendations and are happy to help with reservations. The rooms are beautifully decorated in Venetian style. No elevator, but they help you with your bags. Breakfast is good with fresh pastries and good coffee. Just a little wear showing on some of the fixtures and carpet, but nothing compared to the value you get for your money.

We stayed for three nights with our three children and my sister and her husband. Our luggage did not arrive at baggage claim after our long flight from Chicago which put an immediate damper on our spirits. Nonetheless, we had sightseeing and a new city to explore so we head for the Hotel. Once we arrived they made us feel very welcome and cared for. Throughout the 24 plus hours we did not have our luggage they stayed in touch with the airport so we did not need to. The breakfast was fantastic and we all really enjoyed the chopped fruit salad and croissant. Our rooms were very nice and well appointed with all that a traveler would need. Very high ceilings which give the rooms a bigger feel. The ladies that help at breakfast were amazing and made us feel terrific. We had dinner the first night at a restaurant not too far off that made us feel insignificant and as though we were a bother so we were very pleased the staff was warm and helpful here.

The beds are quite firm so if that is not your preference you should know. Also, the rooms on the canal side are quieter but not as lively.

We stayed in the annex and found it preferable. If you are worried about using the Vaporetto you need not be. It is quite easy and a stop is steps from the hotel.
