“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The location of this hotel is great - it looks like a little on the side, but the walk to Piazza St Marko is amazing...one get to go through so many little typical venetian lanes and bridges...And because it is not on the main toursit drag, the streets are not so crowded...you can actually see for yourself how the venetians live as it is mainly residential area. The other great advantage of the area is that there are a lot of hidden little reastaurant frequented mainly by locals - great food at reasonable prices. The hotel is in an old building but with great character (wooden beams in rooms and ventian furniture) and very well maintained. The room had a great view over the water and despite the fact that there is a vaporetto stop right in front it was not very noise - we slept like babies (maybe also from all the walking and admiring this amazing place). The breakfast was very good - could not fault it. Would not hasitate to recommend this hotel!

This is a lovely little hotel. The rooms are quite small but fully equipped, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Matteo, the owner is very friendly and has for a great sense of humour (and makes great coffee). Would highly recommend this place as it is away from the main hub so quiet and the view across to murano is lovely. We were in room 1 right by reception and thought we might get woken with comings and goings but was very quiet.

Stayed at Hotel Vecellio for 4 nights in September, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The hotel is, as others have said, in a perfect location for the water bus stop (the 2nd stop from the airport line Blu) about a 10-15 min walk to the main sights this was part of the fun for us getting lost!

We stayed in room 4, this was a beautiful room very Venetian, huge wooden beams, decent shower, air con, a tv (didn't even turn this on, who does in such a wonderful city!?) & the best bit the view!
The owner Matteo was a nice chap, very friendly. Breakfast was basic but the great coffee made up for it!

We are already talking about going back again soon!

If you are tired from "classic touristic way" of seeing and experiencing Venice, you are in the right place. Hotel "Vecellio" is a bit secluded from the touristic traffic (that could be very annoying) but near Vaporeto stops that allows you to be in center of Venice for 15 minutes, if you choose to.

Hotel management and service are very kind and most helpful, especially when it comes to sightseeing the Venice but from different perspective - Venetian perspective. That is priceless! They could offer you things like this: to dine in a restaurants with authentic Venetian cuisine and aperitifs, trip through Venetian canals in small boats and with guides that are familiar with more intimate history of Venice, sightseeing the plaza's that are secluded from regular tourists but of great beauty and cultural value, booking a tickets in Teatro San Gallo if you want to know more about Venetian history, culture and heritage and and much more.

So, if this isn't enough I don't know what is!?!

Vecellio is situated right on the edge of the lagoon with cafes and restaurants right around it. San Marco square is only a 20 min walk away. Matteo is a great host and a good laugh. Highly recommended!

I stayed in Vecellio once. My band was on a tour throughout Veneto and we had a magnificent performance in Venice that night. The concert ended late, so we were really tired.
Rooms themselves were extremely cozy but also stylish (Venetian baroque), with a fine firm bed to sleep. The location is both convenient and sacral, overlooking the San Michele island.
About the staff - all the Venetians that i spoke with told me that Matteo (the owner) is "one of the best people you will ever meet", and getting to know him personally just confirmed what I already heard. He is super-helpful when it comes to tips on how to manage your time and money in the city that he practically "owns". He is one of those people who will give you his time, effort and share the wisdom about this outstanding city - from where to eat, to what to visit. Matteo's lovely wife Beatta is also a great host and a breathe of fresh air to the whole thing.
A wonderful little hotel that worth whole lot more than money spent.
Once in a lifetime experience.

The hotel is in a fantastic location, being directly onto the Vaporetto stops makes getting around really easy and transfers to and from the airport are direct for just 15 Euro. A 5-10 minute walk takes you to the hustle and bustle of tourist Venice, but this area gives you the chance to take a breather from all of that. The rest of the area to the north is very pretty and really quiet even during the day. The staff could not have been more helpful and our room, No2 on the ground floor was more than adequate. Would return to this hotel without a second thought.
