“A perfect stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The hotel is very easy to reach: if you arrive to Marco Polo Airport, walk the covered passage to the Alilaguna stop (app.7 minutes, use a free trolley for the baggage), board Alilaguna Blue Line boat (15 Euro) and after 1 hour and 20 minutes ride disembark at the San Zaccaria. Go straight to the gap in the building opposite the stop, pass San Zaccaria square (with the monastery to the right), enter San Provolo square and exit it at the north end. To the right across the channel you’ll see Palazzo Priuli, the main reception is there. See the map I’ve attached.

I was given a room at the top floor of Ca’Niccolo Priuli’s two buildings. The whole experience is halfway between living in an apartment and staying at a hotel: I was walking the quiet backstreet (Calle dei Preti), buzzing myself in with a magnetic key, going up - to see my room cleaned perfectly, bedheets with fresh creases, everything is impeccable.

If you are not in the mood for eating out fetch something from a supermarket – there are 2 of them in vicinity, both are 5-6 minutes away: to Punto Simply go through the San Lorenzo bridge and Coop is in the opposite side. Punto Simply has a counter with great meats, cheeses and salads – and less crowded than the Coop. If you want to grab something good, tasty and with no surprises when the bill is presented – try Rossopomodoro, a very nice and modern Neapolitan pizzeria & café, it’s very close to the hotel.

There is also an option for fine dining at a reasonable rates: the very famous Café and Restaurant Quadri at the Piazza San Marco – right opposite the Florian’s – was awarded a Michelin star last year and is very expensive but has an ABC Quadri option: here the essentials of fine Italian cuisine are served at the prices that are very affordable, in fact they are the same as at some no-name Venetian tavern. You are just 7 minutes from the Quadri, door to door.

The breakfast is served from 07 30 in the morning and is so substantial I felt the first pangs of appetite only by 2 – 3 pm or later. Some reviewers call the Ca’Priuli breakfast basic, some – great, both are right: all the basics are there: salami, ham, cheese (all three not in the most expensive varieties, obviously – but you are not in Danieli), eggs, pastry (which is super: fresh, warm, there were even two great cakes – apple and chocolate), jams, Nutella, fruit, cereals, yoghurts, juices, coffee, tea, etc.
In a low season midweek breakfasts are in the Palazzo Priuli (see the photo).

A lot of sights are accessible by foot, and the hotel is so close to Piazza San Marco – if you are lost look for the signs on the walls (“To San Marco”, with an arrow below) or ask somebody who looks local – Piazza San Marco? – From the square you can reach the hotel easily, you are just 3 bridges away if you start from the Piazza’s northeastern corner (5-6 minutes walk). In the middle of the day you can always reach your room, take a quick shower, change what’s needing to be changed, maybe stretch in bed for half an hour, let yourself rest – and then re-enter the city feeling perfectly refreshed.

The staff is really good but don’t expect the cheery chirping: it’s a very old city, life and work here are complicated, you are on vacation but they are not.

I’m really happy I chose this hotel for my week in Venice, everything was just perfect: value for money, location, cleanness, staff’s helpfulness, breakfast - all the essential parts of a perfect stay.

Room Tip: The building accessible from the backstreet, Calle dei Preti, has a less touristy feel.

What a superb location, minutes walk from St Mark's Square and shuttered windows opening right over the canal. The rooms are delightful in their Venetian character and ambience. What was especially amazing was the value for money; location, authentic charm and more than sufficient continental breakfast, I would defy anyone to find equal. 5* for the value for money and not to compare with the Ritz

Room Tip: Due to the size of this hotel there are only 9 room, no lifts and old narrow stairs which we found f...

We spent 5 nights here while my husband was in Venice for a conference, and would definitely recommend it. We too were allocated the lovely Room 403 which has it's own little terrace overlooking the canal - sadly November was a little chilly for sitting out but this gives us a perfect excuse to return. The adjacent bathroom is large & has a bath, separate shower & a bidet.
Breakfast was the usual buffet selection (the choice was good) with the bonus that the croissants were warm, & hot milk was avaialble for coffee - not always the case.
The location is ideal - close to the main vaporetto stops at S. Zaccaria but tucked away in a quiet and picturesque area. We had no issues with noise from the shops & cafe opposite.
It's true that the reception desk is only staffed at certain times but we never found this a problem.

Visited this hotel on a last minute break in November, this is the sister hotel of the Palazzo Priuli, where we checked in for the Casa. Reception is limited at the Casa Priuli but this was no problem as they are all part of the same company. Our room was more than adequate, with a chargeable mini bar a free in room safe for keeping valuables and a lovely modern if somewhat small bathroom. My only complaint is that the room, although very spacious, was very dark as our outlook was over an inner courtyard. It was on the first floor fortunately as there is no lift in this hotel and I am not very mobile. Breakfast was served on the ground floor between 7.30am and 10.am and was more than adequete, there were even boiled eggs but unless you were there at 7.30am would be hard boiled as there was only one serving of these. Plenty of cereals, bread, croissants, jam, marmalade, cream cheese, yoghurts, cold ham and cheese. You wouldn't go hungry. Tea and coffee were plentiful as well as fresh fruit. If they ran out of anything all you had to do was ask for more. In the summer months an outside terrace was available with additional tables.I normally stay in at least 4 star hotels but for a mini break, this 3 star was more than we expected. i would certainly recommend this hotel. More importantly, this was very very close to San Marco and even Rialto, with a number of shops, bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which is not dark if possible

this hotel was so lovely! because of the flooding we were upgraded to the junior suite for our first night, room was beautiful and bed was very comfy! for the next 2 nights we were put in a normal room, still quite spacious, bed was comfy, though pillows were a little hard, shower was very good!

the staff here were so friendly and helpful. the breakfast was your standard continental. the hotel was good because the casa where we stayed was a separate building from the hotel and the breakfast room was next door in another building, all had lovely little courtyards, made the hotel seem that more special.

the only problem we had was that our room (302) was right next to the entrance way into the casa so we could hear everyone coming in and out of the place. but otherwise no problems!

oh also was in a great central spot just off the san zaccharia, very easy to find from the waterfront.

We wanted to stay at a hotel in Venice for one night before boarding a cruise ship - so we wanted something in a good location (i.e. not too far from St Marks) but with paying a ridiculous rate. My wife found this hotel - location was good and price reasonable. We took a shuttle boat from the airport and got off at St Marks Square. It did take a bit of walking and carrying bags over archway steps until we thought we were around the right area. You will in fact probably see the sister hotel - Palazzo Priuli - nefore you find this one, but the staff from the sister hotel will gladly escort you the this hotel which is only 100 feet away. We were very pleased to be told that we would be upgraded to a balcony room (nice surprise). The room was on the 2nd floor and was well decorated and (unusually for Europe) has a spacy bathroom and a standup shower, aside from the bathtub. The blacony was a nice garden space to overlook the bustling Venice sidewalk. The staff were friendly and helpful and organised a water taxi for us when we left the next day. The breakfast was fine - the usual European cheese, sliced meat, fruit fare. We are more than happy to recommend this hotel based on friendly service, location and room rate.

Between the rain, the canals, and the flooding during morning high tide in this magnificent city, we felt like aqua humans! The three days of rain made it impossible to use the lovely terrace adjoining our very European room that overlooked a canal and provided a wonderful view. Continental breakfast and dining area were excellent. One small negative was the reluctant-to-help and not terribly friendly young woman at the desk, but this was offset by her more engaged and responsive colleagues.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the canal and, if possible, with a terrace
