“Gracious Hosts”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I booked this hotel after much research and reading all the reviews on the property. We were a group of 4 females ranging from 17 to 66, and a 12 year-old young boy, and after a long flight from the U.S. we were all anxious to get settled in. It was extremely easy to find the hotel from Piazzale Roma as the owner had emailed me the directions to the hotel. It took us 5 minutes or less to get to the property.

The owner, Michele, had emailed me a week before our arrival to confirm our arrival time so he could be there to greet us. When we got to the property we had to ring the bell, and we were buzzed in to find a smiling man coming down the stairs calling my name. It was such a pleasant greeting. He immediately helped us with our bags as there are about 25 steps up to the hotel, not including the ones in the courtyard. He gave us the keys to the Tiziani apartment, went over some things with me, and made us feel very welcome.

Me, my mom, daughter, sister and my nephew really enjoyed our 3 nights staying at the palazzo. The apartment has an upstairs bedroom with a king size bed with a view of tile roofs. The bathroom is also upstairs. The only thing I disliked about the bathroom is that you have to climb very steep stairs to use it. The living room sleeps 4 people. There's a sofa bed that sleeps 2, and the other two sofas sleep 1 each. We had a canal view which was nice, but we couldn't keep the windows open because of the mosquitoes. There's a glass dining room table with 6 chairs with a pretty chandelier.

The big bonus is the kitchenette which has cooking and eating utensils, a microwave, an electric two range stove, and a small fridge. There is a supermarket within walking distance, and we bought some groceries at reasonable prices. We were able to cook spaghettis, with a mean lettuce and tomato salad. Having a kitchenette helped us save money on food. The kitchen has a beautiful view of a church.

Michele's wife, Emma, is just as gracious as her husband and took time to tell me a bit about the palazzo, and it was interesting to know that Michele was raised there before it was converted to a hotel.

The property might lack all the amenities other hotels have, but this 16th century property is worth a try. The owners do give their guests a personal treatment other large properties lack, and I love the fact that I found this property. All the raving reviews I read are all true. Book without any trepidations, you will not be disappointed!

We recently stayed at the Residence Palazzo Odoni with our two 9 year old boys. It was beautiful and Michele was a charming and very helpful host. The courtyard at night -- with jasmime blooming and candles lit -- was magical. The apartment in which we stayed had a kitchenette, which is very helpful when traveling with kids. The furnishings were gorgeous, but not prissy. I would absolutely stay there again. Loved it!

Great place, great location. Easy to find, close to train and bus. Just off the main paths so not too crowded nearby. Nice to have the full kitchen, would have saved us a lot of money if we had stayed more than a day & 1/2. Would absolutely return.

Our family of four had a great stay at the Residence Palazzo Odoni. Our room was very comfortable for two adults and two teenagers. Michele was extremely helpful and accommodating during both the reservation process and our stay. The restaurant recommendations were great. We especially enjoyed Restorante Ribot which was very close with great, friendly service and delicious food. The hotel itself is very romantic especially at night. Our room was beautifully decorated in an authentic Venetian style. It is on a quiet canal in a not too touristy part of the city and is a fairly easy walk from the train or bus station. Palazzo Odoni was a wonderful place to return to after a day of sightseeing. Only wish we'd had another day to enjoy it. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

If it's your first time to Venice, where do you stay? If you're doing a cruise, this is the ONLY place you want to be. The owners will make you feel welcome. We chose this hotel because it was close to the cruiseship terminal, and from the airport, if you take the express ACTV to the Piazza Roma, you'll be less than a 3 block walk to the hotel. Had a 2 bedroom unit for 4 adults and a 7 year old. Perfect choice and 2 bathrooms! Highlight will be the breakfast though....fresh pastries, fruits, meats & cheeses, and the coffee is to die for! Restaurants and shopping are steps away. Did someone say Pizza slices???? Stay here, away from the expensive hustle and bustle of St. Mark's Square. It's only a 25 minute walk away.......

Thank you Guys!!!!

Residence Palazzo Odoni was a fantastic stay for a family of four. Near bus and train stations which made coming and going easy. The manager was very friendly and helpful, rooms was old fashioned and authentic, location great. We were a family of four - mother and children - girl 20, girl 18 boy 12 - and space for all. Kitchen was great to prepare breakfast and late night snack. Bath was heaven sent after a long day of sightseeing and the beds were comfortable. i particularly liked being away from the crowds but still near the action.

Recommend it to families who need two separate rooms for sleeping quarters. Location is near the train station, which will save you $200 in back and forth water taxi fees.

The rooms are well maintained, and Michael, the prprietor is unusually kind and service oriented (by european standards).

The only reason for the lack of the fifth star is the lack of breakfast facilities, even though there is a reasonably priced place nearby that the hotel recommends.
