The hotel exceeded even our high expectations. We went to Venice as a surprise romantic trip and the Bucintoro was a perfect venue. We stayed in room 101 which was very spacious, excellently decorated and had a view of the Grand Canal and Venice waterfront which would be hard to beat. The room was surprisingly light, given the dark wood panel decor, and the bathroom was well appointed and kept to a high standard.
The staff were all very friendly, polite and attentive - seemingly not taking offence at our very limited attempt at any Italian whilst there - and happily helped us with arranging a restaurant reservation.
Location wise the Bucintoro suited us perfectly. It's very close to central Venice, around St Mark's Square, but far enough out to avoid crowds right outside your window. This does mean that it is a fair walk away from the other side of Venice, if you want to go anywhere past the Rialto bridge on foot, but we didn't find that off putting at all. The public transport boats stopped very close by.
I'd find it hard to fault the hotel much at all. The bed was quite firm which left us both with a stiff neck on a couple of mornings, but that's very much a matter of taste. The walk in wardrobe, huge bathroom, space and sunset views made it more than worth it.
