“Beautiful Hotel, wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The staff at this small hotel are wonderful. They are so helpful and nothing seems to be a problem for them. We were asked if we would like to sit inside for breakfast or by the canal and we opted for the canal (a great place for people watching).

The water taxi's are very close by and the railway station is a short walk away. There is some lovely bars down the side streets in this area which are very reasonably priced (one was 80 euro cents for a bottle of beer).

The room was very venetian and beautifully decorated. There was free WIFI in the room too. We have recommended this hotel to our family but its always fully booked and at the price they charge for a room I’m not surprised. Next time we visit Venice we will be checking availability for this little gem of a hotel. Who needs hotels on the grand canal when you have this one.

We stayed for 5 nights in November 2012 (including 2 days of serious aqua alta!). This is a great location. Unless you have mobility problems there really is no need to be close to St Mark's Square. This area is less touristy and has some great local bars and restaurants and offers better value for money. We stayed in a ground floor annexe room in a separate building across from the lobby which I think must be a new acquisition because I don't see it within any of the hundreds of photos have been posted by others. A vast room with top quality bathroom fittings and a view over the canal. It was great to have such space in a Venice hotel room.Really good value for money. This is a family run hotel by people who care and it shows - as others have said. However, if you want a hotel with communal areas, a bar, restaurant etc. this is not the place for you. But it suits us and will be our first choice for future visits. However, from searching the hotel booking sites it seems getting a room here in the future will be very difficult.

Hotel is clean and is in a great area, the jewish Ghetto, just far enough from the noise but close enought o get to everything. Hotel is family run, the staff and reception were super friendly and helped us with all our needs.

We spend 3 days in Venice this past October. Wonderful small hotel, with great staff. We were late in arriving since we missed our connecting flight. I emailed them from CDG airport telling of our late arrival and he was waiting for us outside the hotel. Very easy to get to the hotel using the Vaporeto. Nice breakfast by the canal. All and all a very clean and beautiful hotel. Highly recommended.

My family stayed in this hotel for several nights this summer. Accomodations and service were exceptional. The location was very convenient - its not in a tourist district but you can easily access all of the popular sights from here. The best of Venice is off the beaten path and this location was perfect for just that. Breakfast right on the canal and a rooftop deck for evening cocktails. Kids, grandparents and forty-something me loved everything about this hotel.

I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend and was very impressed with this hotel, I wish we could have stayed here longer! The hotel is located in the Ghetto area of Venice, about a ten minute walk from the train station and the location is very convenient if you plan to travel to Venice by train and don't want to carry your bags across the city

The service at the hotel was very good and the staff were friendly and helpful. Inside, the hotel is beautiful with excellent decor and lots of character. We stayed in 'Elizabeth Grimaldi', inside the room was wonderfully decorated with classical Venetian style decor - gold fabric wallpaper, ornate furniture and chandelier-style light fittings. The bathroom was nice also, with a powerful shower and toiletries included.

Breakfast can either be taken in the breakfast room downstairs or delivered to the room - we had ours delivered to the room and were very happy with the breakfast. Fresh pastries, fresh orange juice, excellent coffee and a variety of spreads.

The hotel is located quite far from St Marks Square but the walk there from the hotel is lovely, taking you past all of the main tourist sights. Would recommend this hotel and would be happy to stay there again

Room Tip: Elizabeth Grimaldi is a nice room with a gold theme, high ceilings and a skylight

It was the second time for us there, our first time was five years ago. We had booked two rooms well in advance (10 months), one overlooking the Cannareggio canal, another one on the back. Rooms are very neat, quiet and offer some space, a luxury in Venice, certainly for this price. Always a pleasure to return there, given the kindness of the staff (always ready to assist, even in English). The hotel has a terrasse and serves breakfast outside along the river when the weather allows it. The hotel is located at approximately an hour walk from St Marc (hence the price), in a place where you have much less tourists and a lot of atmosphere of a still populated neighbourhood, also close to the New Ghetto. You can however take a vaporetto and in 30 minutes you in St Marc; it's also close to the train station (10 min walk). Breakfast is fine (a bit more elaborated than 5 years ago), but don't expect a full buffet like you would get in an international hotel (if you are also looking for a pool or a gym, stay away); you will instead get excellent cornetos, bread, espresso, capuccino, cereals, yoghurt, etc. the suite we had on the canal offers enough space to relax certainly if the weather is rather on the rainy side (not our case), and allows to enjoy the atmosphere of the place. It is also ideally located on the boat line going to and from the airport (Alilaguna).
