“Superb!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Arrived from the airport by water taxi and had a wonderful time this hotel was amazing. Great location right in the middle of everything.Staff lovely and helpful everything spotless & clean. Food was great and we will definitely be returning. We left just on the day the rain came so were very lucky.

Room Tip: Choose a delux room it was lovely and looked out onto the square.

The Hotel was excellent and the staff were friendly and always available to
help and this was well proven on the day of our departure. On this day Venice was flooded, yes flooded.... We, with the assistance of the hotel staff, had to wade in 20 inches of water for approximately 1 mile to the Rialto Pier to catch a water taxi to take us to the airport. We could not have asked for more. Also our room was wonderful and the breakfast excellent. Highly recommended.

We've just returned from a 3 night stay, very impressed with our choice of hotel! It's in the perfect location just a 5min walk from St Mark's square and 5min from Rialto Bridge. The staff were fantastic, friendly advice and directions. We caught the beginnings of the 6th worse floods but staff were on hand to help us out, they borrowed us wellies so we could walk/wade to Rialto Bridge to check conditions for transfer to airport and then supplied us with temporary waders so we could get our water taxi and keep dry for the airport! Excellent weekend would definitely recommend, the only comment for improvement would be tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Thank you Ruzzini Palace :o)

Dear Guest,
We wish to thank you for your nice review and are happy that you enjoyed your stay in Venice despite the “Acqua Alta”. As you said, just with a pair of wellies you can enjoy the town even during the high tide hours, to look at a “different” Venice. As far as tea facilities in our accomodations, they are only provided from DeLuxe and superior accommodations (not in standard). Thank you again!

We had a wonderful time there. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. The breakfast surprised us, everything was fresh and delicious. The rooms are comfortable and the location of the hotel is perfect.I wouldn't even think about staying somewhere else when returning to Venice!

This was a beautiful hotel. We got picked up at the train station by a water taxi and felt like we were driving into a dream! Venice is so beautiful, the hotel was in a great location and the staff were wonderful. Only stayed two nights which was the only mistake I made! Next time we are staying longer and exploring Venice!

This hotel was excellent. We stayed in a junior suite and the room was excellently appointed, had a view of the canal, was clean, very good size, and excellent in all other aspects. The hotel employees were excellent and very helpful. All other hotel services were good; internet access was good and reliable during our stay. Breakfast was acceptable.
Location of the hotel is really good. The hotel is located in front of one of the landmarks of Venice. The area has a few restaurants around. We found that San Marco plaza was within a reasonable walking distance from the hotel. The hotel has its own pier where you can get a water taxi to the train station for 70 EUR.

Arrival by water taxi is such an adventure and worth every penny. Originally we intended to "experience" the vaporetta and walk to our hotel. The splurge of a water taxi is well worth it!

The location of the hotel is very central to both the Rialto Bridge and St. Marks.

Our corner junior suite room was located on an upper floor with a beautiful view of the canal. The room was large and nicely decorated with very high ceilings, The bathroom was very nice and included a tub and shower.

We particularly enjoyed the kindness of the hotel staff both at the front desk and in the bar and restaurant. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of options for even the pickiest of eaters.

Our arrival from the train station by water taxi was delightful. Although we did not arrange with the hotel directly for our arrival, we could have done so in advance of leaving the United States.

The front desk staff kindly assisted us with shipping a box to our home. They even had a scale to weigh our box - the box they provided. And by the way, the box arrived safely.

A computer is available for use in the lobby. Each floor has a lovely sitting room area for guests to enjoy.

We highly recommend this hotel for its charm, cleanliness and wonderful staff with no reservations whatsoever.

Pat

Room Tip: Do not hesitate to request a canal side room on a higher floor.
