“Misleading description”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The description the hotel offers is misleading. The air conditioning is there but it's disconnected, the manager said they only connect it on July and August. We had to keep our window open during the night which is a bit scary because the roof from the building behind was at the level of our window, so anyone could easily climb in through there. The hotel also has an "annex" which is not annexed to the hotel, it is about 5 blocks away. So even though the reception is waterfront, your room may not be there, but 5 blocks away. This is also where the breakfast room is, it is not inside the main hotel building. It was clean though, and the breakfast was fine.

I'm sorry but:
1)There's no Hotels (including Luxury 5 stars) in Venice providing with Air Conditioning in this season.
2)Don't be scary. Venice is one the safest city in the world and houses are closed each other, It's Venice such as like this, not Hotel Vecellio.
3)This review is for another place The Guest House Piccolo Vecellio, we are clear to divide the 2 places (in every conformation is written so clear), the travel agency sold your trip is less clear so you supposed to sleep at Hotel Vecellio.

Hotel Vecellio is the amazing.

If you are planning a romantic trip to Venice, this is the place to choose! Just imagine luxury from the days of Casanova: I have never seen a hotel room more beautiful. You could just buy a bottle of good local wine, watch the scenery from your window and spend your days in the hotelroom: no one would say your trip to Venice was anything but perfect :D Ok, of course you shouldn't do that, but you will be tempted. Trust me on this one.

The location on the northern shore of Venice is absolutely perfect. Away from the crowded tourist areas, the small streets and quiet canals will show you the real face of Venice: smell of the sea, echo of your own footsteps and birds singing in the small gardens. The owner will be happy to guide you to wonderful local trattorias, a world away from the expensive and simply bad tourist restaurants of the city center.

In Hotel Vecellio you get to live in the world that shouldn't exist anymore. Still you'll be no more than a fifteen minutes' walk away from all the main attractions. You won't see the real Venice unless you spend a night in there. And this is the place you should choose to make the most of your stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with windows facing the lagoon. And don't be afraid to drink the tap water! It do...

Our staying in Venice is terrific thanks to Hotel Vecellio. Despite it is on the other side of the island, it is having the great sea view and particularly quiet in the night. Sound of sea waves really helped us to have good sleep in the night. And because it was off from those popular tourism places, the restaurants around were having better qualities and more reasonable price, unlike those bistros around the train station just sell you microwave pastas and charge you 12 Euros.

the room was small but clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. Will surely recommand to our friend.

I liked this hotel very much because of the room. It was quite big and well refurbished. The staff is helpful and the location is good. Didn't like breakfast, unfortunately...no fresh cakes or croissant....nothing fresh! I found it very poor.....

When we came to check out from the Hotel Vecellio owner Matteo insisted we paid a city tax. This was a surprise to us as we thought we had paid up in full when we booked our break. When we returned home to the UK, we double checked our copy of the accommodation voucher which we had to hand to reception on our arrival at the Hotel Vecellio, only to find that the accommodation voucher included all relevant taxes. So, Matteo if our accommodation voucher included all relevant taxes why did we have to pay a city tax when we checked out? Also, when we booked our break we thought we were booking to stay at the Hotel Vecellio, our accommodation voucher also confirmed this, only to find on our arrival that we were staying in a building 3 streets away. Our first 2 nights in this building we suffered excessive noise from the street and we were moved to a back room for the final 2 nights that proved to be more peaceful.

Good evening,
please cancel this review.
I didn't insisted for paying the city tax, everybody must pay the city tax. The responsability do not inform the guest about local city tax is for the travel agency they booked. Never had troubles like this in 2 years of city tax.
The guests slept at Piccolo Vecellio and not at Hotel Vecellio so the review was made for the wrong place. In the voucher the guests gave me is very clear: Dependance of Hotel Vecellio. The Dependance of Hotel Vecellio (everybody knows) is Piccolo Vecellio.

Please cancel this review because we don't accept judgments about city tax and the clarity od agreements, we have all the papers show from our part everything is clear and correct, our lawyers are ready for moving, maybe it's necessary a review to the travel agency the guests booked.

A very nice small hotel, very friendly with a nice breakfast. It serves very nice espresso coffee (not from automatic machine). Warm and nice rooms with a nice view the Saint Michel island. Next to a water-bus stop and very easy to find. We reached it very easy from the airoport, as to is by the see and next to water-bus stops
