“Nice hotel, great location!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Stayed in July 2013 for a two night break at Kette hotel. Firstly definitely worth getting a water taxi to pull up to the hotel for the ultimate experience (100 euros though for a one way trip so worth trying to share). Location was few minute walk to St Marks square, designer shops and the array of restaurants.
Food in Venice is ok. Drinks are expensive. Worth going on a serenade gondola, which we booked in advance.
Buffet breakfast at the Kette served a basic continental which filled us up. Rooms were good size, beds comfy, nice bathroom. Seemed busy when we were there and staff were friendly enough and let us get on with it which we liked. On return we got the Vaparetto (check out the website) for the water bus. Took longer to get to the airport but we had enough time to spare. was 14 euros each.

Overall would stay there again if we returned to Venice.

Our travel agent recommended this hotel & it was pretty disappointing. We booked two rooms almost a year in advance, one for my husband & I & one for our two older teens. Our kids room was fine, nothing great, but at least serviceable. We booked the most deluxe room in the entire hotel & when we walked in the air conditioning was broken & there was a huge PUDDLE in the middle of the room. It was July & sweltering! When they "fixed the air" it was still hot, but we had the added pleasure of an overwhelmingly horrible mildew stench in the room. We asked if there was anything they could do to improve the issue & we got a VERY SNOOTY ATTITUDE from one of the men who worked at the front counter. He said there was nothing wrong with the room, the air or the smell & that he didn't want to be bothered with us. We ended up being helped by a nice young man who agreed that we weren't crazy & was very apologetic about the room & his colleague. He agreed to move us, but we got what was left over in the hotel: a crummy room that had almost no storage & was actually so slanted that if you put a pen on the floor it rolled all the way down to the other end, so we were constantly left with a feeling of vertigo. It was awful. We were not compensated for the price difference between the rooms either, because we booked using a crappy travel agent that I'll never use again! I can't believe this is a 4 star hotel. What a joke!

We checked out this hotel on Tripadvisor before booking and it was just as we expected. Very nice room overlooking the canal comfy large bed and very quiet at night, nice clean bathroom the staff were very helpful and friendly, some reviews say the staff were unfriendly but you get what you give as most. Of the guests. Were unfriendly and ignored a cheery goodmorning said in several different. Languages as we went in to breakfast . A very good hotel would stay here again and the location was excellent near to the shops and San Marco.

Room Tip: Back. Of hotel overlooks the canal room 204 was quiet and large.

Superb location, really 5 min from San Marco.
Vaporette is close
Shopping is close.

Breakfast is average.
No dinner

Nice rooms with (was a preference) a 1 bed for 2 persons.

Bathroom in the room .

Venice is expensive, but this is a 4 star hotel in the centre of venice.
Better than to travel to mestre or lido!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view on the canals!

Since it was rated with four stars, wasn't sure what to expect since European and American rating systems are slightly different. Our room was beautiful, comfy, and clean. Air conditioning and wifi, and a nice bathroom. The location is terrific, within easy walking distance of all that St. Mark's Square has to offer - beautiful cathedral, restaurants, music in the square and shopping! The Kette has a cozy little bar with reasonably priced drinks, and a nice lounge area. The staff throughout the hotel are pleasant, helpful, and accommodating. Loved the fact that we could open our windows at night and hear the gondoliers singing. (Some had really impressive voices!) Everything about the place and the people who work there was wonderful! Would definitely return!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of June on our honeymoon. We found the hotel was in an excellent location for exploring the sights of Venice. We arrived by water taxi and found that the hotel had upgraded our room and included a free bottle of Champagne which was a lovely touch.

Breakfast was a continental offering each day which was adequate and our only small moan was that the breakfast room was very small and cramped and could often be very busy.

The staff were very helpful and friendly and it seemed nothing was too much trouble for them.

This is a great hotel as a base to explore the beautiful city of Venice and we would recommend this hotel.

This hotel was average at best. It was easy to find thanks to help from a local gentleman. The breakfast was nothing special and the area was very cramped(small). The staff was friendly and the room was ok. After staying at the Bernini Paace in Florence the previous few nights, this hotel lacked the "exta attention" we loved from our experience in Florence. Venice was also already very crowded....I mean VERY crowded. Again hotel was ok but definitely not worth what we had to pay.
