We had a fabulous 3 night stay at Palazzo Venart. The staff were so attentive and helpful, with nothing being too much trouble. Our room (Palladio) was gorgeous and comfortable, with the extra bonus of a terrace for our morning coffee. Only minor quibbles would be that the air con had been switched off centrally but due to it being unseasonably warm for the end of October, the room was overly warm - that was resolved by throwing open the doors to the terrace, but then the mosquitoes came in! That aside, we had a brilliant stay, including a visit to the hotel restaurant Glam. would highly recommend for anyone looking for a touch of luxury.
Gorgeous location & sumptuous hotel but room was very, very dark (only dim lighting) and way too cramped; only restaurant for dinner is a small Michelin one which was booked up; and they didn't want to do 6am room service coffee when it's a 5-star hotel offering this.
Off the beaten path, a luxury hotel with no real room service but a fantastic breakfast outdoors. The rooms were elegant in an overstuffed, dark Venetian way, with a lot of marble. Staff was just lovely and so helpful. You'll do a lot of walking if you stay here, whether you want to or not. It is close to a Vaporetto stop and you can get a water taxi right at the garden on the canal, but water taxis are crazy expensive, no matter where you are going. (Also, be prepared to be able to climb up a ladder from the taxi to get onto the dock at low tide.) The streets all around are those lovely small streets where Venetians actually live. We never had dinner there because it was a very costly 3 course prix fixe meal. And the idea of a garden is lovely, but it keeps you further away from the canal and you can't eat in the garden on lounge around. I think I would rather have stayed on the canal. We thought we were being clever avoiding the crowds around San Marco but there are no bridges near this hotel, so you have to walk back to the tourist areas anyway. Next time I'll just accept that I'm a tourist and stay in a hotel near Piazza San Marco.…
The best thing: a beautiful, very private and very comfortable hotel in an incredibly busy tourist city. The rooms and common areas are gorgeous - what one would expect of a converted Venetian Palazzo. Staff was efficient and friendly. Breakfast at Glam was lovely. Had a great lunch there. Next time will eat dinner there. Highly recommended. Would definitely stay again without researching other hotels.
The location is very slightly away form the centre but only a short walk. The ambience is wonderful and our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Staff were fantastic though bar and food prices are expensive-to be expected in a 5 star hotel. The garden centres on the canal and the position is great.
The hotel is on the Grand Canal with its own private dock, which made it very easy when we arrived and left. Every staff person was not just friendly but genuinely sought ways to please us. The room was surprisingly roomy with a perfect blend of original design and comfortable amenities (AC, etc). Don’t miss the only Michelin 2* in Venice. The location may not be for everyone since it’s away from the hustle bustle. It worked perfectly for us since it was quiet but still an easy walk to St Marks and other popular sites.
The hotel itself is well furnashed with old charm. But located far from the main attraction. It is quiet for a good night sleep. However, we were extremely disappointed with the level of housekeeping. The bathrobes, drinking glasses, toilet papers l toiletries and bedsheets were not replaced for 2 days untill we made a complaint. It was an okay stay not to the expected level of luxury as this was voted the best hotel in Venice.
What a beautiful property, expansive and intimate, nestled gently on the Grand Canal but only revealing her own Grand history when you walk through the iron gates that separate the hotel from the hustle and bustle of Venetian life. Our greeting was warm and more importantly genuine. The room exquisite and how lovely to have fresh fruit and cold mineral water awaiting you after the staff have guided you through the room facilities. We look forward to returning in the future
A very satisfactory FHR stay at Palazzo Venart. Great area that’s a convenient walk to sightseeing but also far enough from tourist central; loved pulling up to the private dock by boat, the serene backyard for cocktails watching the gondolas go by, and that we got to have the same beautiful classic wooden speed boat with a great looking and stylish driver our entire stay for getting around. Hotel only had 18 rooms and suites in total so my understanding is that complimentary upgrades are hard to come by; however, my Classic Double Room that was called the Carnevale was more than sufficient for me. Only tried Glam II, the hotel’s 2 Michelin star restaurant, for breakfast daily, which was not as spectacular as I hoped so if staying here, I’d recommend venturing out for dining.
Fantastic, impeccable and discrete service that’s ahead of guests wishes. Super intimate place with beautiful Venetian interiors, carefully curated decorations and feeling you’re at home (at your own palazzo!). A 2-star Michelin restaurant on premises is a cherry on a cake.
