“Top notch service, great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

The Moresco is relatively new and both the public areas and rooms are therefore immaculate. The decor reflects the splendour of Venice. The location is away from the busy touristy parts of the city, but this has two benefits. It is only 5 mins walk from Piazzale Roma, so you can be at the hotel not too long after landing. It also means that when you get on the vaparetto it is at the beginning of the 'line' so you can almost always get a seat on the outside deck.
The rooms in the hotel are lovely, mixing modern facilities with traditional luxury. The bathrooms are fairly small but state of the art. My only small criticism is that there isn't a great deal of storage space.
Breakfast is high quality, with plenty of choice with eggs cooked fresh to order.
The bar area is particularly pleasant, drinks are a reasonable price and there was a happy hour each evening with free nibbles.
However what really stands out at the Moresco is the service. Absolutely everyone was brilliant and made me feel so welcome. Nothing was too much for them. I would certainly stay here again.

This hotel was just simply wonderful, in every aspect, only a 5 min walk from the bus station (we caught the number 5 bus straight out of the airport and arrived within 30 min and was a very enjoyable ride) we did get lost finding the hotel so I would just ask hotel to email you some direction from off the bus stop as It was very easy to find.
We had the junior suite and loved it, the bathrooms were so elegant, service within the hotel was second to none very good waiters that would recommed great wine at not stupid prices.
I would stay local to eat as there are some lovely restaurants just a stones throw away, in a little square and they only have about 3 tables outside wish I could remember the name of it.
I would also suggest a the number 1 waterbus for a few days.

My partner and I stayed in Venice last week during half term for 3 nights at Hotel Moresco. We got lost from the bus stop for about 30 minutes trying to find it and a policeman told us the complete wrong way. But it is only a 5 min walk from the bus station we just went the long way round. Take a map! And don't go over the main big bridge you need the little bridge. Anyway when we got there we were both in a bit of an annoyed mood that the policeman had got us lost but when we arrived we were greeting with a big smile, a free tea or cappacino and a rest in the bar whilst we were checked in and our bags taken to our room. When we were ready a friendly waiter took us to our room, showed us round, how to use the TV etc and asked if we were happy. A great start to the trip!

And from then on it just gets better and better.... awesome breakfast. I asked for the bacon well done and it came perfectly done. I also asked for some mroe couissants as they had ran out and the chef baked some new fresh ones on the spot within 5 minutes and I had the freshed couissant I've ever had and it was delicious! All the waiters and hotel staff are really friendly and help you with directions and even let us borrow a guide book. Overall I was extremely impressed. For me I had paid a lot of money for the room as we are not overly wealthy and I was really hoping that the 3 nights in Vencie would be a romantic and wonderful experience and the hotel was certainly that. I am going to up load some of our pics so you can all see our great room.
Finally a massive thank you to the staff and managment of the hotel, we had a wonderful time and it was a romantic trip never to be forgotten. Definately in my opinion a 5 star hotel! And one of the best in Venice that I know of. Thank you Hotel Moresco xxx

Very close to the bus and train stations, so away from the touristy spots. We walked or used the Vaporetto to get wherever we wanted. Right on a small canal, and we had a nice view out of our windows. Modern bathroom and smallish room (typical European). VERY helpful and friendly staff. Would definitely stay there again.

This hotel hit all the high marks. It was clean, well appointed, large rooms, great breakfast, very helpful and friendly staff and superb location. We are well traveled and this place ranks high on the list of places we have stayed. It is in a quiet neighborhood but within easy walking distance of all major Venice sites. A very cool spot and very well priced (reasonable). Charm and convenience.

Myself and my wife have just spent a long weekend in Venice. I am so glad that I booked the Moresco. By luck - I found that the location was perfect - as I had booked the 3 day waterbus pass which included transfer by bus to and from the airport.
On leaving the airport, the No.5 bus awaits you and 25 mins later you arrive in Venice. From the bus stop, you only have to cross a couple of bridges and voila! there is the hotel.
On arrival we were greeted with cups of tea and a very warm welcome. The room was great - overlooking the canal.
Breakfast was excellent. Eggs and bacon, croissants, breads, cakes, fruit, cereal, fruit juices etc etc.
The small bar/lounge is so cosy and welcoming. We enjoyed wine, together with complimentary chocolates and nibbles.
Nothing is to much trouble for the staff - highly recommended!
