Hotel Palazzetto Pisani, November 2-4 2012

We were a party of seven that booked two suites 2 days before cruise departing Venice. We had looked first at hotels but they were all too pricey. Others wanted a B&B. After finding many favorable reviews on PP we thought that it would be the best alternative. It was.

The day before we arrived there had been an alta aqua which flooded the lower floor, but it cleaned up nicely and did not affect us. The weather there was clear and bright the whole time with foggy mornings - magical. Three days after we left they had 60" of water.....that would have been bad .....but hey....this is Venice.

Pros
• It is a charming authentic mini-palace attached to the Palazzo Pisani – a cultural center; the architecture and room details are very old and intact; it is quite a museum piece.
• Great location – Centrally located near the Ponte Acadamia and an easy walk to anywhere you wanted to go. The square/Campo nearby had good restaurants (Trattoria Fior just off the Campo Santo Stefano on C. Botteghe was the best) and a few bars but was not crowded with tourists.
• Many of the rooms directly look onto the Grand Canal – quite spectacular.
• Directly accessed via water taxi – best way to get there from the airport.
• Comfortable beds
• Excellent breakfast - and great coffee
• Very friendly and helpful staff
• Good WIFI
• A good value - for seven adults it was a 100Eur a day each. If you factor in the really significant breakfast, and afternoon snacks, it is really very reasonable.
Cons
• The rooms are not quite as glitzy as they appear in the ads (still worth it, and well appointed with antiques). For example, if you are considering that Bellavista suite, there are really two, and you should take the more expensive one, which looks more like the ad. Take both suites for a party of four.

I planned a very small wedding at the Pisani long distance from Connecticut, USA. When we arrived we were so amazed at the beauty of Palazzetto Pisanai and how it is cared for by the staff. We arrived during the flooding and the staff was so attentive to our needs as they were taking care of the first floor under water, worried about our experience in Venice. They worked so hard to make our stay unforgettable in the midst of the their own turmoil. On our wedding day they had set up the Noble floor and suite for us. We wed while the sun shined in through the balcony doors and our 30 guests had the best wedding experience of their life. Pisani catered our reception with homemade lasagna, risotto, tiramisu and other Italian favorites. My guests are still talking about the palace and the food while mentioning that our wedding was the best they had ever been too! It was so incredible to be able to talk to Fatima, who cared of the Countess who owned the Palace until her death two years ago. We heard all the stories of visitors and the family dynasty as she gave us a private tour. Bill Gates and Queen Elizabeth even visited the Palace. They also filmed the Caso Nova film with Heath Ledger on the Noble Floor. The breakfast in the dining room was always wonderful with the beautiful tables, fireplace and breakfast waiting for us. The location of the hotel was in the heart of the area. We walked everywhere and spent the day getting lost over bridges and in the squares. It was affordable for anyone to stay here with room rates from 280euro to 1800euro. We stayed in the Arbella room at 280euro and honestly, loved it. It was in our budget and we felt like royalty. We saw the other rooms and they were magnificent! I will be back next year...not in the November since that is flooding season! But, we still had a wonderful experience. Thank you Nicolo, Agnus, Fatima, Chiaro and Luca!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Arbella which was down a narrow hall in the back. The room had everything we needed and it had a window to the side canal. However, if you are looking for romance and more...then try the suites which were incredible. You won't regret it!!

Excellent location on the grand canal and close to everything you want to be close to is within easy walk. The staff are lovely - helpful, thoughtful and pleasant. Palace is authentic and very glamorous although slightly faded in places - some of the vintage furniture in Doge suite is very worn in places (original fabric perhaps so while faded it is probably authentic), the basin tap leaked and the suite is not in quite as 5 star condition as it looks on the website photos. However none of that detracts from the wonderful overall atmosphere, the beauty of the palace, the pleasure of staying there and the view of the canal from the suite balconies. Breakfast was limited choice but perfectly OK and fresh squeezed orange juice really was lovely fresh squeezed and coffee was very good. We loved it and loved Venice. Would have been expensive but we booked through a discount site which made it better value for the view and location

Room Tip: The Doge Suite was the only room we saw - forgot to ask to see others. It is very original and really lovely with the balconies on the grand canal. Well worth staying in. Doesnt have a shower tho.

I was in Venice to celebrate turning 40 so I wanted to splurge and to stay on the Grand Canal. Palazzetto Pisani certainly gives you that. There are 2 small but wonderful balconies to watch Venice float by from with a glass of prosecco, although bear in mind sometimes these may be off limits as they can be become part of a suite.....we paid a lot for the Bellavista Suite as it promised a canal view...which it had but it was right opposite reception and was very noisy as a result and the bathroom was funky given it was under the stairs but too small. It's like staying in a museum which is nice but it all feels a little tired and rundown...and the housekeeping was terrible. Our towels were not changed despite being left on the floor and when we asked to change them we were told no, every second day.mnow I can handle that in a 2 or 3 star, but not at this price. Breakfast was also a disappointment...it was ok but not great.

First, the good points. Online booking very efficient. The location is superb - just by the Accademia bridge so that one can explore San Marco and the north of the city as well as Dorsoduro without the extortionate water-bus fares. The reception staff are all young, multi-lingual, friendly and efficient. Our trip was for four days: they explained at the time of online booking that they could only provide a room for the first three nights, but that they would find a hotel for the last night. They did this with no fuss and provided a water-taxi at their expense.
The room was fine, good lighting, constant hot water and a comfy bed. Breakfast was copious - and, if one asked for cappucino (ordinary coffee and tea were on the table) it came - and eggs were available in various forms. Free Wifi is offered.

Now the disappointing bits. The hotel overlooks the Grand Canal. There is a room of faded elegance with chairs and settees which opens onto the view. Smashing. We profited from this for two of our days. However, if the hotel is busier, that lovely, sun-filled room becomes part of a suite and is not available to other guests. And the hotel becomes dark and gloomy because the sun - which comes through the canal-side window doesn't arrive.

Access to the lower floor rooms is through a passage which is only 15 inches wide.....I am not joking; and the decor is awfully run down.

We were disturbed each morning at 7.30 by metallic grating noises - which may have been a delivery of stuff for breakfast or generally. As whoever was making it was awake and up, he probably didn't even realise. We did.

Finally, when they charge 250 euros a night for a "cheap" room, I really think that they can throw in a bottle of water and a glass of prosecco each day, rather than charging for it. I thought that was mean - oh, I know that they charge you to breathe in Venice but there is a limit.

Dear Guest, thanks to have chosen Palazzetto Pisani for your holiday in Venice.
Thanks for the help to find out any inconvenience that we immediatly provided to up date and change. Today may 2013 the main Noble floor and the main living room facing the Grand Canal with two balconies is always available at all our guests also who is staying in a room with no view on the Grand Canal.
The metallic grating noises we are very sorry for that, the Palace next to our hotel was getting renovated.
