“Best Welcome in Venice”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

My family and I stayed at AD Place for three nights in June and enjoyed a fantastic stay. We arrived via water taxi (the only way to arrive in Venice) and were warmly greeted by reception, who proved to be helpful and knowledgeable throughout our stay. We had booked a junior suite but were kindly upgraded to a suite at no extra charge, which had everything we could have wanted in Venice, including two canal views.

Our room was spacious and modern (though it may not be to everyone's taste), breakfast was more than plentiful and the location was perfect for walks into San Marco or to Accademia.

What sets this hotel apart is the service. The staff can't do enough and nothing is too much trouble. Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed here just last week and had a lovely time. The receptionists were all so lovely and made us feel very welcome. Our apartment had a view of the canal below, where gondolas would pass every few minutes. Our room was so spacious and clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was also amazing, love AD Place.

Stayed in the apt with all the pink and green. It is much better in person. The apt is 2 rooms with A/C wall unit in bedroom. In the living room, there is a cabinet with a small kitchenette in it. (No microwave). Would have been nice to have some detergent to wash the dishes with as they didn't wash them day to day (We only used glasses). They do come and change towels and make bed daily. The room has wifi that was decent speed and is stronger in living room.

The apt is on the first floor and there is a small set of stairs to reach it once inside the front gate area. In the public area, there is a small courtyard that was very nice and a small hall area leading to a door that opens to the canal. (That is the picture you see of the room that opens to a canal). The apt itself is a corner unit with canal on both sides with (6) windows looking down on the canal. You have to walk to the windows to see the canal though. It is a popular gondola area so will hear them during the day and evening. Will also hear some canal noise as it is a tight turn for any boats and they have to three point turn it. The bed is king size with good pillows (4). Bed was comfortable. Apt was nicely furnished with comfortable furniture. TV on the wall with no English channels but plenty (like 20 channels) of very racy late night infocommercial ads for phone sex lines. No issue for us but just beware if bringing young people.

Bathroom is all blue tile with shower and separate bath tub. It was stocked with amenities and had hairdryer also. Towels were of decent quality and large. (No washcloths but didn't have washcloths in any of the hotels we stayed at in Italy) The shower is small but I am 6' 280" and I had no difficulty fitting in or taking shower. We had no hot water the first day and once we reported it.....they had the plumber there that day fixing it. Plenty of hot water once working. There is a safe in the room and it is right before you walk into the bathroom. We realized when we got back the first day (the same day the hotel staff and plumber were in the apt) that we had left it wide open with a significant amount of cash in it. There was no way it could have been missed walking by. Nothing was missing so a big thumbs up to the integrity of the staff.

You do have to go to the main hotel to check in and it really is a short walk from the orange line Alliguna stop. They will take you to the apt from there and it is close by. Near the apt, there is grocery store and also a little bar on the corner that is open late night (which is uncommon in Venice) I do not recommend the pizzeria around the corner but the Rustico restaurant was outstanding.

Was very comfortable here and would stay again. My only recommendations for improvement are to add a telephone with the phone number for the hotel so we don't have to walk back to the hotel if we need to report problem or need help. Also, when taking people to the apt, spend a few minutes showing them how the heat and air work as it wasn't really self explanatory.

The location is perfect and is very easy to get to Rialto or St Marks from the apt. If my review was helpful, please check it. Also, I will be doing reviews of the restaurants and other places we stayed in Italy over next week so check my other reviews.

We have just come back from Venice, AD place is a wonderful hotel in a great location. It is easy to navigate from here without getting lost. Quite close to St Marks square and Rialto bridge without being busy and a very short walk from the water taxi stop . The breakfast was lovely with a great varied choice and the coffee machines which everyone mentions are great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They recommended Dok prosciutto restaurant which I have reviewed and would whole heartedly recommend. The squares locally have good restaurants and are quiet and relaxing at night. The Gondolas pass right past and it is wonderful to hear the accordians and singers as the punt past. I would definately also recommend the Murano island trip, it is free from AD place, you get ushered into a glass factory and although it is free you feel a bit pressured and but bear with it you don't have to pay anything at all and can leave at any point to enjoy the rest of the island. Give yourself time to enjoy it and browse the shops as they are lovely, some great artwork. Also another must is Burano another small island it is so colourful and unexpected ( if like us you havent dont 'too much' research).

Room Tip: Our room Decembre was at ground floor level, first impressions are it is a bit dark, But the Gondali...

Venice is the most romantic city I have had the pleasure of visiting, and this hotel, located just a short meander from the giglio stop, entirely complements the location. Mesmerisingly lit by dozens of candles at night, from our very comfortable suite we could hear the singing from the gondolas drifting below. The staff could not have been more helpful, recommending restaurants and cafés, and the breakfast was delightful- with espresso or cappuccino made to order. There are stairs to be climbed here, but then this is true across all of Venice- this is not a city for those with reduced mobility. The price of this hotel was reasonable for Venice- which is an expensive city- but from this hotel you can walk just about everywhere. We loved it.

Room Tip: Upgrade if you can. You'll be glad you did.

I booked this hotel as part of a break to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday in March, after much research on Trip Advisor, and I must say I was pretty pleased with myself at my choice.

As we arrived, after a two or three minute walk through the narrow alleyways from Giglio vaparetto stop, the receptionist was just lighting the candles in the lanterns at the entrance, which gave the place an instantly romantic feel. Booking in was painless and we were taken fairly quickly to our room, as I had booked an evening at Venice Jazz Club and we needed to get changed quickly to go and grab a meal before the show. We were on the top floor (in Septembre room I think - all named after months), and the "Stannah" style stair lift got our cases most of the way up, but there were a few more stairs after that. Not a problem for us, but could be for older travellers. As with most Venice hotels, there is no lift for guests or staff, and it would be impossible to fit one without ruining the fabric of the hotel.

Having booked a "standard double" through Expedia, I was amazed at the size and quality of the room (with a separate bathroom along a small hallway), which in other cities would have been classed as a suite. It seemed enormous as we had just come from Paris, where a more expensive room was about one third of the size. The photos on the hotel's website really do show the full glory, which is a refreshing change.

Everyone on reception was very helpful and only too pleased to show us how to navigate our way around. I don't know how long it would have taken to get to the Jazz Club at 9pm in the dark without their advice!

The hotel is well placed for the main sites, being about 200m from St Mark's Square, but with little noise apart from the odd passing gondolier.

Being so small, the hotel only serves breakfasts, so you have to eat elsewhere in the day and evening, but they were truly amazing. Probably the best I have ever had, with a great selection of mueslis with yogurt; fruit, and cakes. Be sure to try the chocolate muffins!

Room Tip: If I chose a relatively cheap option, then the other rooms must be unbelievable!

When we arrived in Venice, there was a transportation strike, so we were pretty grumpy by the time we got to the hotel. Our moods changed as soon as we walked in. The lovely lady and gentleman who helped us get checked in were very friendly and helpful. We arrived prior to the check in time, but they managed to let us get in early. Even though we had to climb to the top floor, the terrace was right next to us, so we spent a good bit of time up there taking in the views. Breakfast was the best selection we had at any hotel in Italy. The room was gorgeous, and the bed was very comfortable. I have zero complaints about AD Place! (even after falling down the stairs my first time down...the stairs at the top are a lot more narrow than I'm used to!)
