Getting to the hotel was easy. A bus costing only 7 euros one way. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the bus stop. If you prefer and can afford it you can get a water taxi from the airport to the hotel.

From the beginning of our stay to the end all the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful - gave us a map and lots of tips on ways of getting around. Also recommended sights and restaurants when asked.

The room was excellent - very clean, high ceilings and well laid out. Had a antique grand feel - not ultra modern but definitely has some class. We were impressed that what we thought was wallpaper was actually fabric on the walls. Although our room windows looked at a wall this was not a problem as I had initially thought. In fact it allowed us to open our windows and provided us with privacy. Very comfortable bed indeed. I requested softer pillows and was given those with a genuine willingness to please.

Breakfast was continental - very good selection. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

Great location. Gondola service right outside the hotel.

Had a excellent 50th birthday weekend away with my husband.

Thank you to all staff. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Venice.

Had a 4 night stay here, travelling by train its very convenient (apart from lugging cases over the canal bridge !). Very nice small hotel, well worth paying a bit more for a room overlooking the canal giving constant entertainment outside. Very close to vaporetti quay and also good as starting place for several different walks through Venice.

Efficient and very helpful staff, genuine Italian restaurants recommended and booked.

Room Tip: Rooms high up and overlooking the canal recommended.

The service is outstanding, and a short walk from the train station. Our room was upgraded, and quiet for duration. A wonderful night's sleep, with a fantastic breakfast to start the day. Helpful hints for every aspect of our stay - personally provided recommendations for sights, but also personally booked restaurants of outstanding value and service

We travelled with our two kids and chose Antiche Figure because of very good ratings from all kinds of customer groups. Ratings are indeed well deserved! Hotel has very good location with just couple of minutes walk from bus and railway stations. The staff is genuinely friendly and helpful. Hotel is cozy and clean with a sense of luxury of Venetian palaces. Breakfast was excellent with handmade capuccinos served by the staff. Our room and bathroom were clean, wifi connections worked well for both Ipad and smart phones. We had room 311 overlooking Canal Grande and it was nice to observe all the boats passing by. We would certainly choose this hotel again!

Perfect in every way! Staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. Room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was lovely. Loved their lemon cake. Don't normally eat cake for breakfast but fancied it and it was delicious. I would not hesitate to stay here again if we return to Venice. Would recomend to anyone. Close to the railway station, right on the Grand canal. Venice is a relatively small city and all areas easily reached from Hotel.

Room Tip: Room 418 was perfect for us. High up, quiet, could just see the Grand Canal out of the side window.

Absolutely fantastic hotel. Hotel front desk staff absolute top-notch reception- couldn't be more helpful.

Directly across waterway from main train station, and a perfect staging area for embarking on any train journey.

Checked in today and immediately went to the balcony (we are in 211). Highly recommend one of the two rooms overlooking the canal with the small 3 m² balcony. The view is fantastic, though I suspect it is more the hotel staff who make coming here so wonderful.
