“Believe the reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I booked this because of the good reviews on this site and was not disappointed. We had a two bedroom apartment, which was very clean, spacious and well appointed. We also chose not to have the kitchen unlocked as I had no intention of cooking when there were so many places to try the fabulous Italian food literally on the doorstep. The hotel is only a two minute walk from St Mark's Square so the situation is excellent. We chose to take a water taxi from the airport , a pricey option at 110 euros, but in my opinion well worth it as there was no waiting around and the trip was only about 20 minutes and we were dropped right at the door. The hotel staff are excellent, friendly and informative and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would book again if I have the good fortune to return to Venice.

Had an overnight stay. We were lucky our water taxi took us directly to the hotel ( later found out this is not that common ). We had a 2 bedroom room good size. The concierge was great recommending a good restaurant for all our meals and also showing us how to get to the rail station. The staff service is great and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay close to all main places. We could see below the many gondola rides and waving tourist... Overall a great stay

After the numerous good reviews on TA, we chose the Residence Corte Grimani, because of its location, the price and the apartment could take 4 of us. We decided not to cook in the apartment. Instead we went to the cafes nearby for breakfast.
We arrived by water taxi and the taxi guy knew exactly where it was so there was no need for a map. We arrived early morning and were greeted by the staff and checked into the room right away.
The place is close to San Marco and we covered most of the area by late afternoon. As the apartment was not that far from San Marco we went back to freshen up before dinner. The restaurant was recommended by the staff. The restaurant was packed, we had to queue for a table, but it was worth it. The food was excellent.
The next day we went to Rialto and looked around the fresh produce market and had lunch by the canal.
In the afternoon we went on the vaporettas and stopped off in a number of places and we even had time to fit in Burano, which was a brilliant place, with coloured houses and rather peaceful.
The Residence staff were very helpful especially to my mother and gave us a number of recommendations and tips. The staff booked the water taxi for us and it came on time and the staff helped us onto it as it was a bit of a struggle for my mother. By the way the wifi is excellent.

Well after a slow start with the water taxi telling us that they couldn't drop us off at Corte Grimani, walking through the different streets, trying to find the place. A weight lifted off our shoulders when we finally arrived. The staff were very helpful, giving us maps and information we needed. A very modern apartment, newly renovated so it was fresh and clean. The only down side was that the kettle was tiny and they had no bowls for cereal and small cups.... but maybe that went with the small kettle. Our departure was a lot smoother than the arrival with the water taxi collecting us from the front of the hotel. Overall a great apartment with great help.

Room Tip: Had a little trouble with mosquitos but staff were very helpful and organised a plug-in repellent to...

It was fine. Good location, nice and roomy with comfortable bed. However, we were paying for an apartment, and to be told that we had to pay 50 Euros to have the kitchen unlocked (they actually had locks on the cooking section!!) for a 3 night stay was just not right. We opted not to do that and ate out instead, but when I book an apartment, I expect to have full use of the kitchen without a costly extra fee. It was yet another "extra" to use the clothes washing machine too. I have stayed in apartments all over Europe and never encountered this meanness before - it should be described as a hotel room where you can pay extras if you want to use the kitchen or clothes washing facilities.
The staff were cordial, but when we asked for an extra (little and paper) map of Venice, because they had only given us one, we were told that would be one Euro more. We declined. This is an ungenerous attitude, especially as this is not particularly cheap.
They recommended a couple of restaurants, but again, we found better ones ourselves.
It was OK, but not up to the starry reviews I have seen here.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we chose it for a quick two-day stay in Venice. I booked a room with a view. When we arrived, the hotel upgraded us (free) to a suite with two bathrooms, a kitchen, a nice big bedroom, lots of closet and drawer space.

The location is wonderful. It is quiet, but very close to SO much. There are five or more ATMs close by; all kinds of shops; a great place for quick delicious food called the Snack Bar (that the staff at Corte Gremandi pointed out). The hotel is roughly equidistant to Rialto and San Marco (St. Mark's Square). Both of these places are stops on the public transportation system of water buses called vaporettos.

I met four different staff members over the course of my stay at the hotel, and each one was wonderfully gracious and helpful, and very knowledgeable. They explained the differences between the vaporetto and water taxi. They explained the options for getting to the airport (we came by train). The young woman cheerfully called and made reservations for a Vivaldi concert.

We spent one afternoon in our room longer than planned because every so often a gondola with musician and singer would pass by below. We would have gladly paid for such great entertainment! All we had to do is open our windows and look down. It was a highlight of our ten-day trip to Italy.

I had neglected to print out the map they had emailed to me. It is not easy to find the first time without a map, so if you choose to stay there, don't make the same mistake I did. Bring the map! Once you know where it is, it is very easy to find, and VERY convenient. It's just an amazing combination of being off the beaten path (by just a half block or so), yet right on a canal with gondolas passing by, and five minutes from St. Mark's Square, easy walking distance to Rialto, and ALL the various shops, restaurants, and concert venues in that area.

I would have never found this without Trip Advisor. I'm here to say that the other people who are saying great things about the Corte Gremandi are right on the money.

Room Tip: We were in room 501 -- the top floor, overlooking the canal. It doesn't have to be the top floo...

The apartment was wonderful, only surpassed by the attentiveness of the entire staff, front desk to housekeeping. Of particular note were the front desk staff members Guido and Donatella. Both were "tour guides, restaurant critics, activity specialists and map interpreters" extraordinaire.
Apartment consisted of a foyer, kitchen/great room, full bath and bedroom. Clean. Daily linen service. Ample closets. Free Wifi. English TV.
Location is a short walk to almost everywhere on a tourist's
itinerary and only a slightly longer walk to get anywhere off it.

Room Tip: Off the canal is quieter, but you miss the singing. Room 101 gives you a little bit of both.
