“Centrally Located in the Heart of Venice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

This hotel is literally right off the Rialto Bridge stop, less than a five minute walk. It's pretty small and tight and our room where our family stayed was covered with vintage, velvety deep red walls all over. Very Venetian... very "creepy" as per my little sister. Nothing too special and our room was cramped but I'm sure if we had less people in the room, it would have been a lot more comfortable. The restaurant downstairs has really delicious food; a bit on the pricier side but worth-it! And they offered us a discount because we were hotel guests. The San Marco square is only a 5-10 minute walk, literally close to EVERYTHING you could think of as far as Venice goes. Just a quick note: some guests received free breakfast while others had to pay. I don't know if this depends if you book ahead of time and with which travel company or if you book independently with them. It would really help to clarify directly with the hotel.

After we booked our room in this hotel, I read the negative reviews here in tripadvisor and was a bit afraid, what I will find there... the hotel was a very positive surprize! Our room was on the top floor (junior suite) and there is no elevator, but the staff was helping us with the luggage. The room was not big but enough for two people, nicely renovated in venetian style, with a comfortable bed, a small but lovely shower. The location is brilliant, 2 minutes walk from the Rialto vaporetto station. I can only recommend it.

Room Tip: If you have difficulties with climbing stairs, you better ask for a room in the first floor.

Nice hotel, as expected and seen in the reviews, no elevator, nice room and facilities with no fancy views, it's in the street just behind rialto hotel near rialto bridge, very good location. Nice staff. We book online via their website the prepaid rate with no breakfast, all went fine.

Room Tip: Lower floors have less stairs :)

The Graspo de Ua was in the perfect location, as central as you can get. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the rooms were everything you would expect for the price. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel except that I wished I had stayed there longer.

Staying at the graspo de ua was our pleasure. The staff was beyond helpful and friendly, Roberto you are my favourite person in Italy. The food at the restaurant was delicious, I always felt the urge to leave a generous tip for the service and the quality. The room was comfortable and clean, which in then end was all we were looking for, but we were thoroughly impressed by the location, a little hard to find but the sign out the front made it easier (right next to the rialto bridge). For me it's the staff that made my stay most enjoyable. I will definitely be coming back to stay with my friends.

thanks to Roberto from the restaurant and Paolo from the front desk. They made us feel right at home and did what they could to help. Food was great and Roberto gave us his personal touch that made this a great stay for my whole family. Grazie!!!!

Hotel Graspo de Ua is a small hotel close to the Rialto bridge. When you exit the vaporetto at Rialto, try to access the alley behind the terrace. It is quite difficult to find but if you look well you can see the sign of the hotel on the pavement.

The hotel itself is OK in comparison with the price paid, nothing fancy but not bad either. The room we had was on the top floor of the hotel, which lacks an elevator so we trained our calves well during our stay. The rooms are tiny but with a nice Venetian atmosphere. The bathroom was tiny too but well equipped with a proper shower. The bed was fine, little bit on the soft side. If you are taller than 6ft you will find your feet dangling outside the bed for sure when stretching.

The hotel staff is helpfull and professional. The breakfast was basic.

All together a fine stay in Venice but there are better options avaiable.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the smaller the roms.
