Stayed here for a weekend. Receptionists rude.

Rooms small. Basically each floor is split into two floors, so the ceilings are low.

There are plenty of good restaurants and cafes around, so you don't have to eat there. Im sure the food would have been ok, but why would you eat in a hotel?

Stayed: August 2012, traveled as a couple

We usually thank all our reviewers for their comments; reading your it becomes difficult to us to understand if we are speaking about the same Ruzzini Palace. You didn’t like the accommodation you had, but we wish to remember you that we are speaking about a XV Century Palace and nothing can be considered “Basically” as you’ve stated. Each accommodation is different from the other, even on the same room category. Moreover, the info given are not correct, because we don’t have a restaurant....why you compare us to the neighbours Restaurants and Café, if we don’t have one at all???

We stayed for 3 Nights in the Ruzzini Palace. We didnt arrive to the hotel till about 1030 at night and there we was very warmly greeted and our suitcases taken to our room. We was in room 306 which overlooked the canal. the room was lovely and spacious with a separate dressing area a beautiful bathroom and a lovely sized bed with a tv and dvd player. The hotel is located in santa maria formosa which is about 10 mins walk from all the main attractions (although it took us more than that because we have no sense of direction) aftera few times though we were pro's haha! The hotels decor is beautiful and very tastefully done throughout. with a little mini bar in the room. i never made it to breakfast in the hotel as we were so tired from all the waking. but id like to thank the hotel for there lovely service on my partners birthday with a lovely bottle of sparking waiting for him. if i ever get the opportunity to go back to venice, i would without a shadow of a doubt go back to the ruzzini palace.

Room Tip: a canal room is quieter i believe

Dear Guest,
Thanking you for your kind review, as you said, walking and discovering Venice could be a bit tiring, even because there’s a lot to see. We are glad that you enjoyed your accommodation on the canal side and our efforts for the special occasion. Waiting for your next stay...

We stayed at the Ruzzini Palace Hotel, in the Campo (square) De Santa Maria Formosa for a long weekend in November a few days after the worst floods since 1872 and it was sunny, warm and with no sign of the earlier floods. The hotel is a converted Venetian family pallazzo, tastefully refurbished in a sympathetic modern style, retaining many of the original features and characteristics of the old building. Backing on to the Rio (canal) de Paradis and the facing the square itself, it is perfectly located between the Rialto Bridge and St Marks Square, but sufficiently distant from both to be an oasis of calm away from the relatively fewer, but still many visitors, at this time of year. The staff were welcoming, helpful, attentive and friendly at all times. The room, located in the eaves of the building, was comfortable and well presented and if not the grandest, afforded wonderful views across the rooftops to St Marks Basilica and the Campanile. In an expensive city generally, it was very good value for money. When (not if) we return, we will choose to stay at the Ruzzini Palace again.

Dear Guest,
Thanking you for your time writing such nice review, we are happy that you did enjoy Venice even with the “Acqua Alta” on. As you saw, Venetians are used to live together with it, we just wear plastic boots and work! As tourist, it could be also interesting and funny to see (to be correct on 1966 we got the highest tide which was 1,94 m.). Wishing you’ll back for another “special” stay...

Beautifully situated, luxurious hotel; close to the heart of Venice in an area not full of tourists. We were there in November, so it was bound to be less crowded, but areas around St Mark"s Square (10 minutes walk away once you stop getting lost) still busy with tourists. So it was a relief to get away from the crowds and get back to this very peaceful, atmospheric square. Its also close to some reasonably priced restaurants and bars. The hotel is beautiful and the service from the staff at reception was second to none: really helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great and the bar staff very friendly. Our room was the standard double, it overlooked the canal at the back of the hotel (where you can be picked up and dropped off by water taxis or gondolas), and had all the facilities you could want (other than tea/coffee making - minor gripe). All in all the hotel and the staff made a happy time even more wonderful. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We had rooms all over the hotel and everyone was very happy with them all. My room was at the back overlooking the canal which in high season is likely to be quieter and you fall asleep hearing the water lapping against the hotel sides and the occasional boat or gondola helping to gently bring you to life in the morning.

We arrived by water taxi and from then on it was great! the front of house staff were great. The concierge was so informative. He gave us great directions to best places to visit, took time looked after us so well. I am a coeliac and they had cereal, bread, biscuits etc for me each morning. The breakfast was lovely and the prosecco helped! We were upgraded to a junior suite which was great with a lovely romantic view over the canals. The hotel is 10 mins from the Railto Bridge and 10 mins from St. Marks Square. When we return to Venice we would hope to return to the Ruzzini Palace!

Room Tip: Visit the St. Bartholemew trappatoria. 5 mins from the hotel in the direction of the Rialto Bridge, follow the signs. It serves take outs and upstairs is a restaurant. Downstairs they have seats and tables. Last week upstairs was empty so we ate downstairs. We had lasagne, prawn risotto, huge salad and french fries and 6 glasses of lovely red and white wine, at a total cost of €39 with a lovely glass of lemoncello on the house. Can you beat that! Who said Venice was expensive!!!
