“Great centrally located boutique style hotel”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Stayed two nights in a standard room at Ruzzini Palace which is an old private palace redone to a beautiful quaint hotel. Staff is outstanding. Location is perfect to be just out of the way yet 5-10 min to St Marks and Risk to bridge. Highly recommend this spot. Room rate included a breakfast down in restaurant which was better than we expected with eggs and bacon, meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, homemade yogurt, Danish pastries, amazing coffee. Loved this hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms not overlooking the square are more quiet.

I have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel in Venice. Im a travel agent and have travelled to many nice hotels in the world. This hotel has a lovely location in a campo in central Venice, a great respite from the busy San Marco and Rialto areas. The hotel itself is lovely, set in an ancient palace with quality rooms. The staff were fantastic and always willing to give expert advice to make the most of the city and in recommending some great local resturants. They arranged a private boat trip around Venice for us, which was fantastic, an amazing way to see this beautiful city from the water. Would thoroughly recommend. Prices in the hotel bar for Venice are very reasonable with great Prosecco for only 3 Euros. Overall an excellent experience, Good central location without being noisy, Very attractive rooms and very friendly welcoming staff. Will certainly be recommending to any of my clients who wish to visit Venice.

I have been wanting to visit Venice for years and after a great deal of investigating reviews chose the Ruzzini Palace and so pleased we did. The hotel arranged a private transfer from the airport which was 140 euros for the four of is. We exited the airport our names were on a board. We were driven to a waterway where we had a private water taxi take us directly to the hotel reception. I had read horror stories of people wandering round pulling their suitcases and struggling to find their hotel. Venice is a maze. Beautiful and the best bit is getting lost but not when carrying your suitcase up and down the stairs of the numerous bridges. Back to the hotel, we just booked a standard room and had a room in the loft. With beautiful oak beams and a very comfortable bed. The room was small but adequate. The bath has a jacuzzi but sadly this was out of order and if you are 6ft you would not be able to stand under the shower. But a beautiful bathroom and well equipped. The staff were all very helpful and their restaurant recommendations were all very nice. They also kindly arranged a 1 hour private boat tour of Venice and I would thoroughly recommend this. However book this in advance as there are certain times that part of the grand canal is closed. We booked a walking your that included a gondala ride but there are six to a gondola which I felt was a bit crowded so if something you wanted to do as a romantic ride best to book your own. The tour was about an hour and a half and did not cover the main parts of Venice but some interesting areas off the beaten track so look up the details which I did not! I can recommend the Island tours that visits 3 Islands. Murano, berano and torcello. However there are water buses that go to all of these. Murano glass is cheaper in the shops away from the factories. Berano is famous for lace and before my visit only went as it was part of the trip but somewhere I would like to visit again. All the houses are painted different colours and would have liked more than 50 mins to explore. There is not much on torcello and I personally could have missed the visit to the monastery but it depends on your personal taste. We also got off the tour on the way back on the island of lido. About a 15 minute water taxi from Venice. If you are visiting Venice on a budget or want somewhere quieter I would recommend staying on Lido. Food and drink was very reasonable and it has a lovely beach. You can purchase a water taxi pass for 3 to 4 days for about 35 euros and visit Venice as often as you like. Venice is beautiful and the Ruzzini palace is approx 10 minutes from the Rialto bridge and st marks square so if you want to stay in Venice itself it is a perfect location for exploring.

My wife and I stayed here last week and loved it. We had reserved a Jr. Suite and and they upgraded us (without us even asking) to the "Suite del Paradiso" at no charge. The room was huge and had a great view over the small canal behind the hotel.

Location is only a 5 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge and 10 minutes to St. Mark's Square.

Beautiful rooms with great views. Central but still hidden from the Tourist trail. Breakfast had a good choice, but extra costs for having fried eggs... Highly recommed the Hotel and its friendly staff.

Loved our stay here as part of our honeymoon. We arrived on a water taxi from the airport, which was amazing as we got to see lots of Venice and was door to door service.

All the staff at the hotel were incredibly friendly and helpful. This included recommending and booking restaurants, booking our opera tickets and giving general advice.

The location is amazing! V. quiet but only 7 min walk from St Marcs square.

Can not recommend it enough. We stayed in a Junior Suite, which is definitely worth it.

Thanks for making our honeymoon even better!!
