“Perfect location for first time visitors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Small, friendly hotel right on grand canal, next to the Academia bridge. The vaparetto (boat that runs along the canal) stops just outside the hotel, making it really easy to navigate around if you are new to the city. Breakfast is served in the room, which is a nice touch, and since all rooms have a view of the canal, you can drink coffee and eat fresh pastries and rolls while watching the hustle and bustle of the water. Make sure you check out St Margherita's Square which is a short walk from the hotel - very beautiful, busy little square for a drink or dinner, for a fraction of the price of St Marks.

Room Tip: Room 8 has a beautiful circular window over looking the canal, with chairs and a table for breakfast...

The old world feel of this hotel (very conveniently located at the Accademia Bridge) added to our short stay in Venice immensely. And the breakfast served in our room made us feel like we were Venetian royalty.

Room Tip: Large room suitable for family of 4. Also 2 windows with excellent view of the Grand Canal!

The Hotel Galleria is the perfect spot for good location on a budget. We had a room with a view of the canal and enjoyed wine at night and breakfast in the morning by the window. The restaurant below is a bit loud when you are trying to get early sleep before 11 but other than that the place was great. Beautiful decor and friendly staff. They even had free cokes, water and orange juice out at all times for the guests.

We've been in Venice for 3 days in March 2013 and were really happy that we've exactly chosen this hotel.

About location: CAN'T BE better (it's right in the center, where all the INTERESTING sites are)
About staff: CAN'T BE more friendly
About view: CAN'T BE more amazing (we had a small double room viewing the Grand Canal)
About atmosphere: CAN'T BE more romantic. . .

We will definitely come back to this hotel!

Room Tip: Small Double N.7 has a really nice view of the Canal

We stayed at Hotel Galleria for 3 nights from New Years' Eve in 2012 and had a really lovely time. The location is incredibly, absolutely perfect - walking distance from San Marco Square and so close to the watertaxi! The hosts were absolutely lovely, really welcoming and lovely upon check-in and every time we left or came back to our room. The breakfast served each day was fantastic, and they even catered for my partner who is gluten-free! Very, very impressed. The only slight negative is that the room smelled a bit after we'd go out for a few hours each day, but that would clear quite quickly.

The room was absolutely huge, comfortable beds and a reasonable sized bathroom. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Galleria in Venice. The location was absolutely perfect, adjacent to the Accademia Bridge. We found the streets of Venice to be very confusing to manoeuvre around, therefore having our hotel next to a recognizable landmark was the best decision we could have made! Also, the staff were very helpful in suggesting good restaurants in the area at a reasonable price. The accommodations were dated and looked as though they had been lived in, but that was also part of the charm of the hotel, it had a very traditional, authentic Venetian style. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: We chose a room without an ensuite bathroom, which was okay. However, for convenience I would probab...

I have been regularly staying at hotel Galleria for quite a few years and have never been disappointed : the staff always attentive to make your stay the best, the wonderful view, the rooms full of charm, the price that can't be beaten for such quality, everything wonderful. I stayed again 3 days last week-end and it confirms that I will certainly be back ! Thank you again.
