“A wonderful few days in Venice!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We arrived like film stars!! Private water taxi right to the waterside door of this beautiful hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and couldn't help us enough with any questions or advise we needed. Our room was on the top floor, very nice and quiet. One downside, I think tea and coffee making facilities should be available in all rooms not just suites. The breakfast was lovely every morning. A good range with always a hot choice and once again very polite and helpful staff. This hotel is in a perfect location. 5 minutes one way to the Rialto bridge and 5 minutes the other way to St marks Square. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Venice. We stayed for 3 nights and would definitely stay here again. Thank you to all the staff for helping to make our stay memorable.

Dear Joanne,
Thank you for your review! As we already said, tea facilities are not available in standard double, but only on superior accommodations (Deluxe, Junior Suite and Suite). One more thing, as we already wrote, FRESH MILK is available on request by our room service, anytime! We are glad that you found our Hotel Staff so kind and hope to have pleasure of welcome you again (to get the fifth star too!). Thanks!

Excellent value for money. In a great location (difficult to find initially but once you get your bearings you can navigate to the main square in 5-10 mins). Room was beautiful - view overlooking the water, spacious and very clean. Good/friendly service, English speaking and knowledgable staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

On my second trip to Italy, I was already on my own because of a conference held there. I asked my agent to get a room that has a nice view in an extra safe location since I would be all on my own. She looked up and recommended the Ruzzini Palace hotel. I am happy to say that I was very happy with the hotel that she has chosen for me. The view from my room is amazing. They had such a magnificent breakfast buffet with my favorite choices. My room had a small office table where I can work on my reports and do a bit of office work. The lobby is a nice place to hang out in while waiting for your next appointement.

Lovely staff and lovely room but no tea/coffee making facilities in room and although breakfast was included you still had to pay €10 each extra for a fry and €5 per glass of orange juice...also the room did not have the extras included as stated on the website. Definitely not worth the rate of the hotel per night.

Dear Susan,
Your review is completely wrong, because our breakfast already include scrambled eggs and juice and you can eat/drink as you like because on the buffet... Costs of our extras you’re claiming are only for express dishes made expressly for you and only on request.
You should know that the difference between standard rooms and superior category is not just on the cost but also for their amenities. Allow us to suggest you the following phrase (by O.Wilde) “Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”

We visited Vencie again for Valnetines day. Hotel situated in nice square in Venice. Room was very comfortable and big although we found it to be quite noisy. Breakfast was lovely with very attentive staff waiting to serve you tea, coffee etc. Room was always kept very tidy. The down side to the room was there were no tea/coffee making facilities for you to use and when you arrive at midnight like we did you could do with a drink. Also the bar only opened between the hours of 5pm - 11pm (unlike the place we stayed last year the bar was always open). It isnt that far to walk to anywhere from this hotel eg the Rialto Bridge or St Marks square and there are lovely restaurants in the area for a superb eveing meal. We got a water taxi from the airport whihc dropped us at the Rialto Bridge and the hotel is only a short walk away.

Dear Guest,
We wish to thank you for your kind review, and only point out that tea/coffee facilities are NOT available in standard accommodations (only from deluxe and upper category). While the bar has opening hours, room service is available anytime, you just need to ask for and we provide. Water taxi usually bring you up to our canal entrance (you probably took a public boat/shuttle and then walked...). Waiting for your next visit for another Special Valentine....Best regards!

Excellent hotel, very centrally located and really good value for money - particularly when breakfast is included. The staff were all charming, the room was lovely (although we didn't have a view the room itself was stylishly decorated and didn't feel like just another hotel room that could be anywhere) but the location is superb - a little over 5 minutes walk to both Rialto bridge and St Marks Square. One tip though: we took the public boat from Marco Polo Airport to the Rialto Bridge stop. Finding the hotel using the map from their website was quite a challenge! We only had hand luggage so wandering the streets for 20 minutes or so getting our bearings wasn't a problem. But if you come with lots of luggage it would be worth getting a private water taxi which will drop you at the rear entrance to the hotel, via the canal.

Dear Guest,
Well done! Then, if you have a lot of luggage you better catch a private water–taxi or ask for a private transfer service to our Concierge (concierge@ruzzinipalace.com ) and you’ll not have any trouble...Best regards!

my wife booked this hotel for my 40 years old secret birthday trip to Venice. She booked everything online and organised all with a bottle of Prosecco at our arrival. The location of the hotel is fantastic, overseeing a square. very up to date décor with history about the building. all clean and tidy from toilets to window cill. very friendly staff, well organised. Breakfast is good. price wise is fair, because Venice generally expensive. drinks at the bar is fair. you will think it is expensive at first, but after visiting around the area, it is not that bad at all. it is not a hotel. I would call it a Palace.. when it is her turn to 40. we will go back again.

Room Tip: if you want to impress your love one. get the president Suite. yes.. it is worth it if you can affor...
