“Very good hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Very centrally located hotel in Venice, about two minutes walk to St Marks Square and within a minute of the Water Buses. Also close to a lot of good restaurants and shops.

Our room was very clean and the amenities such as the TV and AC were all in perfect working order. The receptionists were very knowledgeable and polite, whilst the maids also done a very good job with the cleaning. I had read a couple of reviews saying you could hear noise in the mornings sometimes but with our windows shut (on the first floor), we never heard a thing. The hotel was very well priced for Venice, although we never tried the breakfast so can't really comment on that.

I was actually quite surprised to find such a good value hotel so central to Venice. Venice is simply not cheap and so to find a bargain hotel close to St Marco was brilliant. Maybe the best thing is to wake up and walk around the square before the tourists arrive. The room was clean and I found most of the staff were really pleasant and helpful.

We stayed at Hotel Antigo Trovatore for 2 nights & it was really great. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and came with a safe. The hotel is quiet and perfectly located-close to St. Marco and you have your choice of restaurants & sandwich shops nearby. All the hotel staff were wonderful and very accommodating.

We would definitely return to Hotel Antigo Trovatore.

Location was perfect...easy to get everywhere from the hotel. Some of the staff at the front desk were helpful, but others were quite rude. When we checked in, they told us to go to the top floor and then walk up the stairs to our room...we got lost and actually ended up on the roof...finally had to go all the way back down to have someone tell us that we had to go out another door to another part of the roof and find our room.

The room was lovely...was told there was a view, but all we could see were the roofs of the buildings...the bells ringing were lovely...especially Easter morning! The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and all in all, our stay was pretty good. We had pre-paid our room, but when checking out the girl said we needed to pay the city tax money in cash. I had spent all our cash with the exception of our money for the water taxi to the airport, so I refused and told her she'd have to put it on my credit card...she wasn't happy with me, but I wasn't happy with her! Don't honestly know if we would stay there again...I'm thinking there are nicer staff people out there...because the price wasn't that great either!

I stayed at this hotel during my 4 day trip to Venice in July 2012. Its perfect!

We arrived by plane and took water "bus", which dropped us off by St. Marco square - just 3 minute walk to our hotel from the stop. It is also just 2 minute walk to the Square itself.

Rooms were clean, spacious and had perfectly working AC., good wifi.

Breakfast was so-so -- just a cup of coffee and croisant, so if you are thinking to pay extra for the breakfast - I will recommend to skip it.

Pillows were a bit too flat for me.

I am planning to go back to Venice, and I will stay one more time at this hotel.

Hotel Antigo Trovatore is the best kept secret in Venice.

As close to the heart of Venice, the Plaza San Marco, as the world famous Danieli Hotel,
and only steps away from the vaporettos connecting everything in the city,
Antigo Trovatore offers charming comfortable and stylish rooms for a fraction of the cost.
Served by an elevator and air-conditioned even in its beautiful garden it pairs total comfort
with the feeling and personalized care of a family owned and operated establishment.

Room Tip: towards the garden
