We stayed here for three nights on the recommendation of friends and on the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We had one of the most enjoyable stays in our three months in Europe.
Location, as well documented in TA reviews, iis one of the real advantages of this hotel. Whilst it is opposite to the railway station, we drove into Venice and found that the hotel is only a ten minute bag-drag from two of the major multi-storey car parking stations in the city. The only obstacle was over a connecting bridge with steps on both sides. Another location plus, was the fact that the hotel is not situated in the main tourist spots, but at the same time is within walking distance of the main tourist sites. Additionally, gondola rides are available right outside the hotel.
We had a Grand Canal facing room with wonderful views from front and side facing windows. The room was expensive, nearly 300€ per night, but when in Venice.......
The room was comfortable with Venetian decor. It was large enough for the two of us and the bathroom was clean, tidy and well-appointed.
The staff were welcoming, receptive to our enquiries and polite in their service.
With outdoor tables, it was pleasant to be able to sit outside in the afternoon, order a drink from the bar and watch the water traffic and tourists passing by.
Breakfast was more than adequate, with a range of food available. You could have breakfast either in the hotel or sitting outside.
Upon checking out, we were given a discount voucher for the car parking which we thought was a nice gesture.
Our time at Hotel Antiche Figure, whilst expensive (like most well-located Venetian hotels) was exceptional and can be summed up in three words - staff, location and atmosphere.
