“Venice at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

All you can wish from hotel for a dream trip in Venice: good convenient location but quiet and peaceful, 6 rooms only - beautifuly decorated preserving the original style perfectily aligned with Venice spirit and art. Prfect facilities and very good quality breakfast, generous and nicely served, extremely enjoyable in the garn terasse. All enhanced by the very attentive and helpful personnel. Th charming garden is a great plus if you want some lazy quit hours. Last time we've stayed for eight days in Venice and in Ottre il Giardino - as courtesy we ere offered the ground floor suite with its own private garden space - it was lovely.

Room Tip: Ground floor suite with own private garden space

We stayed at Oltre Il Giardino for our 25th wedding anniversary celebratory trip to Venice. It's a peaceful hotel with just 6 rooms. We stayed in one of the Junior Suites which was very clean, comfortable, spacious and cool thanks to the air conditioning. Breakfast was really good - continental style but plenty to keep us going for most of the day. The main thing for us was that all the staff were extremely welcoming, very nice and very helpful. It is well located for all the sights (St Mark's Square is about 15 minutes walk away across the Rialto bridge) and there are plenty of good bars and restaurants close by. the hotel was extremely peaceful. I would highly recommend staying here.

This hotel is located in a lovely quiet neighbourhood in Venice, but is also close to the main sights and the vaparetto stop. The staff are so helpful and friendly and breakfasts lovely, set in the peaceful garden. The AC in the room was very welcome, and the rooms were beautifully furnished. Highly recommended.

I stayed 3 nights in this paradise and I can't imagine something better in Venice. Only 6 beautiful rooms, excellent breakfast in a magnificent garden, super quiet place which is highly appreciated. Lorenzo and Ilaria are super friendly, helpfull and kind persons. Only good things for Oltre Il Giardino

Had a full week in Venice in April. This accommodation was perfect. The location is not in the thick of the tourist area which we really appreciated. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. Great continental breakfast every morning including quality pastries and fresh blood orange juice. Would definitely come here again and would recommend it to all our friends!

We stayed for 4 nights and would highly recommend it. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is exceptional and constant so it's very easy to relax instantly and stay relaxed. We were made to feel really welcome and given good recommendations on restaurants and generally finding our way around. Because its on the canal you can arrive by water taxi or its not too far to walk from the bus station or public water bus. The garden is a real plus and nice to take breakfast outside or retreat from the Venice crowds. The location makes walking around Venice easy and so we were able to visit things and return for a break before venturing out again. My partner chose the hotel for me because I don't like noise at night and I found the place very quiet and easy to sleep. Perhaps a bit more information on drinks and what we could buy in the hotel would be helpful as we had no clue and brought in wine ( though we were given glasses and a corkscrew - again very helpfully).

Room Tip: we had a suite on the top looking on to the garden and canal

One of the best hotels we've been to.. Rooms is gorgeous and garden is a small piece of heaven. Breakfast is nice, with very friendly waiters, who will make you feel at home. A perfect place for a romantic getaway.. Highly recommended
