It isn't often you can walk from the 21st century back to the 15th century by the simple expedient of opening a wrought iron gate, crossing a stone bridge and traversing a narrow canal .This is achievable if you choose stay in La Porte D'Oriente. We chose this amazing Venitian Palazzo because we didn't want to have a sanitised hotel experience. Staying here you can become part of the sestiere of Castello, eat in local restaurants and join local folk in the bar on the square. This gem is just ten minutes walk from St. Marks Square and Rialto but miles away from the tourist scrum. The Palazzo has five rooms . We stayed in Indiene , a junior suite, for five nights. It is a spacious room with a large double bed and a single so is fine for three people. Everything is designed for your comfort and relaxation . Breakfast is generous and will sustain you until lunch time. Cinzia is the fount of all knowledge and is generous with her time and advice. We loved our stay and highly recommend it to you .

Cinzia is a brilliant host, welcoming, friendly and full of useful information. My room was perfect. The entrance to La Porta d'Oriente from the glorious Campo S Maria Formosa is worth the price alone.

We booked a junior suite for two nights and we enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is a good place to start trips in Venice. Cincia , the local host, had a lot of recommendations and we enjoyed this stay very much,. Thanks again for a great time in Venice!!

We loved staying at La Porta d'Oriente! Location is fantastic, right in the middle of Venice. We loved walking over the bridge to the front door of the palazzo. The perfect place to wander from and get 'lost' in Venice, the closest you could get to feeling like a true Venetian! The suites are very luxurious and spotlessly clean. My only complaint is we couldn't stay longer - we even asked but they were fully booked!

I am a bit hesitant to write this review because I like to keep this place for myself ;-) La Porta D’Oriente is in an ancient palazzo. I stayed in the Zen room, which has a modern interior. This did not bother me: the room was very nice and clean. The rest of the B&B gives the Venetian atmosphere that makes it so special. The bed is very comfortable. Breakfast is not included. For €5 you get a wonderful and very extensive breakfast. Great coffee. The location is central, at a lovely square. Good local restaurants nearby. The owner/manager Cinzia did everything to make our stay wonderful. She had good tips about where to go and eat. Her wonderful personality made me feel I was staying with a friend instead of in a hotel. Definitely will come back.

It was my third time in venice.city of love,art and history.The hotel is situated in a beautiful old building.Room was big and fully equiped.love washroom .Airconditioning.details that were but to make the stay comfortable were kettle with coffemaker and tea and ironingstand with an iron.i loved everything about this place.early checking was comfortable.if you are travelling with a baby or senior citizen or have mobilitt issues then this place is not recommended as you have to cross 3 bridges from rialto to reach this place and same goes with strollers.But if you are a couple then this place is a gem.highly recommended for solo and couples for an amazing experience

A wonderful accommodation and location was spectacular. An amazing experience in and of itself to have stayed in a geniune 500 yr old Palazzo. Staff was very kind and helpful. The dining room was spectacular and the breakfast buffet was minimal, but fresh and perfectly satisfying. Very oddly, however, the price of it was not included in the room. (Maybe it was because of the discounted room special that we booked under?) Anyway, I do strongly recommend regardless. It easily compares to any 5 star historic hotel I have ever stayed in. We had the Venetian looking room and it was as pretty as it looks in the photos. We came at an odd time (very early AM) due to the delayed Ferry and the owner, Cynzia, met us regardless.

The staff are very welcoming and could not be more helpful and gave great recommendations for dinner. We stayed in the flat over looking the square with gondalas going past the window! Just stunning. The building is fascinating as it was an old palace with so much history. Would highly recommend and can’t wait to go back.

If you want to experience the real Venice, and want to be well located, yet slightly off the main tourist areas, then this might be the perfect place. It isn't a luxury hotel, but a very well appointed B&B. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathroom, newly fitted. The furniture, authentic, Venitian antiques. Cinzia, the host, is lovely, extremely efficient and very helpful and friendly. Our visit to Venice was wonderful, and staying here made it feel like we were really able to experience all of the wonders of this amazing city.
