Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Hotel Paganelli garners appreciation for its impeccable cleanliness, with the majority of travelers expressing contentment with the spotless rooms, despite a stray remark about vacuuming. The establishment’s atmosphere is often described as elegant, providing well-appointed rooms, though a single incident raised a flag regarding security. Its prime location is a highlight, offering easy access to waterfront attractions and dining, which, along with a satisfactory breakfast, contributes to its allure. The staff generally receives accolades for their courteous demeanor, although reception occasionally falls under scrutiny for inconsistent service. Room experiences vary, with some finding them cozy and convenient, while others point out size and maintenance concerns. In terms of value, the consensus among guests is positive, noting that the pricing aligns with the amenities provided, although not all encounters meet expectations.

Stayed at Hotel Paganelli for 3 nights over Easter. Staff were warm and welcoming when we arrived. The hotel room was spacious and had a double bed and pull out single bed. The double bed was comfy however the single bed had seen better days, the slightest movement it made the loudest squeak to the point it woke us up a fair few times. The roon did not have a view it faced a back lane but that didn't bother us as we were out all day / night. Breakfast was served in a separate building just round the corner. The lady working there was friendly and there was plenty choice in a continental breakfast. Location was excellent. Right opposite all modes of transport. We got the alliguna from the airport, vaporetto around the islands and private water taxi back to the airport which the hotel arranged. St Marks and the bridge of sighs is literally a few minutes walk and Rialto bridge is also 5-10 minute walk depending if you get lost! Plenty of choice of bars and restaurants all within walking distance, spoilt for choice! I would highly recommend this hotel for location and value and would definitely stay again if we were to return to Venice.

The Paganelli San Marco location is very close to the water transfer to/from the airport. Great base for exploring. Booked through Jet2 city breaks and paid for superior double….. nothing superior about the room!!! Cramped, small, dimly lit and unbearably hot (as with most Italian hotels no air-con in the winter months) just walking around the bed as risk of knocking yourself out on the large wall mounted TV. There were 2 compact wardrobes either side of the bed with limited hanging space in one wardrobe and missing the rail in the other! Queried room status with reception staff who confirmed they had two rooms that were on the smaller size but still a superior. Hotel is tired and in need of a refurbish but it’s clean, offers a nice breakfast and if you’re room is too hot open a window but make sure you use mosquito plug /spray (yes even in March) husband always a mossie feast! Did it spoil our city break - no not at all, the whole point of a city break is to spend as little time in your room. Would we return to The Paganelli? Sadly no, even with an offer of a discount for our next stay 🙁 but we will for sure return to Venice.

Response from La Direzione, Proprietario at Hotel Paganelli
Responded 6 days ago
Dear F5197YOlorrainem, Thank you for your feedback. We take our guests satisfaction very seriously and we are sorry to know that your stay left much to be desired. I am sorry that you found the room small, all the measurements are written in the description of the room at the time of booking. Our hotel has been refurbished many times, in particular the room you were staying was refurbished last year so it's quiet new. Maybe the style was just not of your taste since it is more on the classic side however at the time of booking you can see many pictures of the rooms to make it easier to understand how they look like, we offer as well the charming rooms which are slighlty bigger and more modern so maybe those were more aligned with your taste. Once again we tank you so much for your feedback. Kind Regards, Veronica - Hotel Paganelli

Other reviewers helped me select this hotel in Venice as we wanted one with waterfront and very near the water transportation. It was a great choice. It’s a 3 star property but the room was so comfortable and the shower was terrific. The team could not have been more accommodating. Personable, professional and very helpful with luggage and local knowledge. The breakfast is held at their annex a very short distance away. It’s an average, adequate spread, which worked for us. There is a small, rooftop deck with a great view which we enjoyed escaping to. We would return.

Excellent location close to St. Mark's, the Arsenale, St Giorgio island and all the waterbuses, the waterbus from the airport stops directly opposite the hotel, there's even a waterbus to the airport at 4am for early flights home. The rooms in the annexe are smallish but comfortable and clean, lovely shower. The restaurant is in the annexe so that was a bonus for us although it's only a minute's walk to the main hotel. There are some shops just around the corner selling water, fruit etc. and quite a few cafe's and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful and always on hand for information. It's perfect for Carnival as it's close to all the 'Masks' meeting places. Hoping to go back next year.

Perfect location. Booked a charming double room but was upgraded to a junior suite on arrival. Beautiful spacious room. Lovely bathroom with excellent shower. Water taxi drops you off right outside the hotel.

Hotel Paganelli is a small but comfortable hotel that is ideally located close to gondolas, water taxis, shuttles and island tour points. The staff are friendly and helpful. Choosing a room with a water view was the wise decision. We had breakfast included and found the food was fresh and the staff cheery. It was fairly typical continental breakfast with choices of cold meats, pastries etc. At the front of the hotel they have a small cafe where you can sit and enjoy an Aperol spritz and a snack and watch life pass you by

Fantastic location right on the waterfront. We had a great view of the canal. A 5 minute walk to St Marks. Friendly staff. Good sized room. Crazy steps to get up to fourth floor though. Glad all we had was carry ons. Would definitely book again.

Very nice for a 3 star hotel. I upgraded my room to a view of the canal. Well worth it. Hotel is in a very busy area of Venice very near the 5 star Danieli hotel. My room was not noisy. It was very plain but comfortable. My room was a very good size. Possibly a Jr suite. I am including photos. Lobby is very ordinary but staff are extremely kind and helpful. My breakfast was included and the restaurant is around the corner. Not a problem. Breakfast included eggs, fruit, etc. There is a small restaurant in front of the hotel for light food, drinks, etc but not open for dinner. Thus is not a problem as there are many restaurants nearby. The hotel is at a main water taxi site. This hotel is definitely not luxurious but it is a very good value.
