3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This hotel, has an excelent location, since is close to a public water bus transport. The room very cosy and clean and the staff is nice. The only true critic that i have is that the breakfast is a little poor for a 4 star hotel (comparing with other 4 star hotel that i used on this trip in Rome and Florence).
Also they take a long time to restock items like cake and croiassants and make very few available each time.

Firstly it s not a 4stars hotel at all indeed . The rooms are okay but the bathroom smells like a sewer. And we stayed in a double bedroom which had two single beds attached together which was really uncomfortable . Definitely not recommended for couples. Also when we turned on the heater it sounded so loudly that annoyed during the night . It doesn't deserve the money that we paid for sure !!

We were put in the attic with sloping ceilings and velux windows, which made it difficult to find somewhere to stand up in the bedroom and the en-suite. There was no electric shower, but a hand shower which you could over your head if you stuck your head out of the velux window! A little disappointing for a surprise special birthday treat. The manager described it as 'romantic'!

We were a party of 6 checked into Russo Palace Hotel; nice, clean, family run hotel on the waterfront. 10 minute walk from the boat station and town centre. Excellent breakfast in the front open section and you can watch the cruise liners coming in. Recommended.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We stopped at the Russo Palace at the end of October for what should have been 4 nights but we had to move on the last night. Overall the hotel is very nice, we stayed on the top floor in the converted loft space with 2 small children and had a fantastic view across the lagoon into venice. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the vaporetto so is an ideal location away from the hoardes of tourists in venice. There are a couple of nice little restaurants nearby and the main road is only a 10 minute walk where there is a choice of bars/restaurants. The hotel itself was very clean and the room fine apart from a low ceiling in places becuase of the loft space. The bathroom was clean and had jets in the bath which was a bonus. The staff were very friendly the breakfast was really good and lots to choose from. The only downside to the trip was that there was no heating in the room, we were originally told that it was a rule for public buildings not to be able to have central heating on before November, but then were told that the heating was broken. Therefore we had to move to a sister hotel on the main road about 5 minutes from the vaparetto stop. Overall it was a really nice hotel and would have been great if the heating was working!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Stayed here recently for business. Had a room on ground floor in the rear of the hotel. Room was average in quality, bathroom was *huge*. No views, but quiet and a cheaper rate. This particular room had a musty smell which was particularly strong in the bathroom after a rain shower. This review reflects this particular room.
As others have pointed out, wifi is iffy - I could not see *any* signal in my room, but it is available in the lobby at a per-hour of use rate. For a 4-star hotel internet service should be available in-room.
Breakfast was very good with home-cooed scrambled eggs/bacon and variety of cold foods/fruits, bread, etc.
The staff were especially helpful and cheerful. They are a real asset and greatly enhanced my stay.

Room Tip: Pick a room above ground floor.
