“Great hotel on a canal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

This is the second time we have stayed here in the last 2 years, and still find this an excellent place to stay in Venice. Close to St Marks, but not busy and noisy. Canal at the door, and in the afternoon gondolas cruise past.
The hotel is quirky and comfortable, with good air-con if required. No elevator, but has a luggage inclinator. Most rooms and the breakfast room/bar etc are up 4 flights of stairs. There are some rooms on the lower level, so if stairs are a problem you can request a room here (we did).
Beds are firm like in most Italian hotels, but fine. Bathroom was good, walk-in shower (as requested), plenty of hot water.
But the real winner - excellent staff. They are all friendly, helpful, pleasant.
Still highly recommended.

Room Tip: If stairs are a problem, ask for a room on the lower level. If arriving by water taxi, the drivers...

Very impressed while writing this in our room in AD Place as we get ready to go out for dinner. Very smart, comfortable and stylish boutique hotel in ideal, yet peaceful location. Try drinks on the little veranda opposite reception as long as you don't mind envious gondola passengers going by. Alternatively, there is the roof terrace for a quiet aperitif.
Breakfast is sumptuous and the staff are very helpful.

Just returned from a fantastic three days at the ad place. I was actually close to tears when we left as we had had such an amazing time. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and the hotel kindly upgraded our room to one with a canal view, we loved watching and listening to the gondolas go by. The location is spot on and the staff and food is first class. We loved the little cubby hole on the canal edge and spent many happy hours drinking Bellinis here. On our last nite [our actual anniversary] we had a beautiful tray of canapés and a bottle of prosseco brought to us in the cubby hole courtesy of the hotel, it was so unexpected and so lovely, we went out for a meal and on our return we had petals on the bed and candles in the room. We have travelled a lot and to many different hotels, but I have to say this is one of the memorable places I have ever stayed. Thank you to all the staff for helping to make our anniversary so amazing. We hope to be back again one day.

Beautiful quirky hotel with such friendly and helpful staff! We loved our stay and it really added to our experience in Venice...so much nicer than a bland corporate hotel.

Breakfast was brilliant and free coffee and pastries were available all day...where else would you get that? The roof top terrace was so atmospheric we felt like we were in a movie set and the decor throughout was amazing!

Keep up the good work !!

We stayed at AD Place in September, and couldn't be more pleased. The location was excellent - only a 10 minute walk to St. Marks. But it was also very quiet at night so we could sleep with the windows open. The room was beautifully appointed, and the bed very comfortable. I will absolutely stay again at this hotel. Excellent!

We really enjoyed our stay here. After staying in hotels all over Italy I think the rooms were a good size and it was nice to have a modern bathroom! Breakfast was good, plenty of options and they made s coffees. I loved the quirky decor. Yes there are lots of steps too climb but what do people expect in an historical building.

The room here is very roomy and the service was great. We were welcome with a fruit plate and a cocktail I believe it was the called the bellini when settled into our room. The only thing bad I have to say about this hotel is that the room had spirit. I'm still traumatized til today. My boyfriend recently admitted that the hotel was haunted. He kept this a secret til we got back to the state cause he did not want me to have sleepless nights in Venice. I really don't want to go into details but I did see a young boy hovering over our bed.

Dear Guest,

thank you for writing this kind review and for pointing out the quality of our offer and services. Though we must say that...we have never received comments regarding "presences", so we don't know what to reply, honestly. In my whole life I've never had this kind of remarks and I'm blown away and unprepared.

Our warmest regards to you and your partner
