Hotel Antiche Figure

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The location was great, being just across the bridge (over the Grand Canal!) from Santa Lucia train station, with cafes, restaurants, ATM and shops close by. Piazza San Marco was within walking distance of the hotel, as were most of the sights, and the many varied winding routes to and from the hotel really allowed us to take it all in and experience Venice. We booked one of the junior suites, which was located separately from the main hotel. This meant we had to buzz at the door to be let in, which wasn't a problem, and actually made the whole stay feel more private (not having to traipse past reception and other guests all the time) - might be just what you need if a secluded romantic getaway is what you're after. The room was very warmly decorated, did not feel like a hotel at all, adding further to the very personable and personal atmosphere of the hotel. Breakfast was standard Italian fare - but better than what we got in a similar style hotel in Rome - and, regardless of the food, the coffee was always good. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. I'd definitely stay again.

This hotel is well-situated just across the train station and a five minute walk from the airport shuttle. I liked the location better than the Rialto Bridge or San Marco because it was better to leave our heavy luggage at the hotel, and then navigate the city on foot or vaporetto. Crossing the bridge from the train station to the hotel might be difficult with luggage, so I would recommend the porter service (5 euros per bag). It was raining when I arrived and I was really happy to see the porter waiting for us right on time! The hotel service was great as well. All my e-mails with inquiries about the hotel prior to arrival was promptly answered. At arrival, we were offered an upgrade to a canal view room for a small extra pay, and the room was well worth it. The furniture, beautiful bathroom, and the general ambience made me feel I was really in Venice. My friend and I liked the room so much that we returned early in the afternoon for refreshment in the room enjoying the view out the window. The breakfast that was included was basic but filling, and the cappucino was delicious too. This hotel is on the top of my list for my next trip in Venice and I am eagerly recommending the hotel to my friends as well.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at Antiche Figure in January 2013 just as the Festival of Masks began. Value for money is at the top level. Alessandro asked us for constructive feedback as we checked out and I struggled to suggest anything as we had such a positive experience.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and on check-in were upgraded to a suite at no extra cost. Breakfast is good quality and the coffee is brilliant with refills laid on. The location was perfect for us - a short walk from Rialto etc. hence slightly more peaceful than the main centre but right on the main canal and 2 minutes walk from the bus and train stations. Our suite was incredibly quiet and peaceful and was a joy to retreat to. The decor was fresh, everything spotless, mega powerful shower and beautifully tidied by the staff each day while we were out. Even to the extent of folding up the clothes we had strewn about into neat little piles.

Overall it is hard to fault Antiche Figure, they clearly have a culture of first class service that runs through the whole team and this sets them apart from other hotels. Highly recommended.

Good location- right across from the train station, and a small walk from Piazzale Roma. Comfortable beds, clean, nice breakfast. Had a wonderful one night stay with family. Will return again, if in Venice.

We stayed here for two nights in Nov. of 2012. The location could not be beat as we arrived at the train station and it is immediately across from there (you just need to get your bags over the bridge and there you are). The staff was very sweet and helpful, explaining were everything was, which locations we should make sure to see and setting up various reservations for us. The room had an older victorian feel, was cute and comfortable and suited the overall vibe of Venice. When we had heard about the "flooding" in Venice, we called them the morning that we were heading there due to our concerns. They assured us that there was nothing to worry about as they do not tend to get flooded in that area (it is the highest point in the city) and that the areas which do flood, experience this during high tide and then it goes right down. They were completely right, this was a non-issue and we were very happy that we did not let the media attention regarding this scare us away. We really would have missed out! Venice was an incredible place to visit and Hotel Antiche Figure was the right way to go.

We have just finished a wonderful stay at Antiche Figure. The location was perfect as it is opposite the station and we were travelling by train, simply cross the bridge and its on your right, just after a beautiful church. For an extra 30euros a night (winter rates, the bonus of going out of season!) We upgraded to one of the balcony rooms with a view of the grand canal. This was a beautiful room, with a lovely view and worth every penny, its not often in life you stay somewhere like this! The breakfast was great, more than enough to set you up for a day of sightseeing. Its about 15-20 mins walk to the Rialto but there's lots to see along the way. Water buses are easy straight over the bridge to the station and get a 1 or a 2. The staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. We even found out some of the history of this 15/16th century building, which features in a cannaletto painting! Wonderful stay, highly recommended.

We stayed at Hotel Antiche Figure for two nights during our two-week long trip in Europe around Christmas in 2012. I have to say this place was the best of all the hotels during the trip.

It was raining when we got Venice and we felt cold and upset about the weather. BUT, this hotel and people who work there gave us a huge warm welcome. The hotel and easy access to both the train station just across the canal and the rest of Venice. They also upgraded our room to a suite room, which located in a century-history building and had great style decoration inside. The room was warm, cozy and luxury, with a great Also their breakfast were GREAT. There were so many choices and also traditional espresso.

We would coma back in the future and definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family!
