My wife and I had three nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The water taxi from the airport was a great start, and dropped us right at the door of the hotel on the canal. Our room was in the main hotel, big high ceilings with old wooden beams and really comfortable. All of the staff are helpful and friendly, especially the breakfast crew who can't do enough for you. The wifi isn't the most reliable, but that allowed us to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet all the more. Thank you so much Valter and Sandro!

We stayed 4 nights and had a very good time staying in the annex. A good location and easy walking to all sights despite what other previous visitors have said. Good breakfast and very friendly staff.

Unfortunately I has having to do some work and the few Wi-Fi was not always reliable and took ages to sign into.

The room was very clean and cleaned daily. Would stay again. Would have been 5 stars if not for the internet.... Shame

Room Tip: Catch a Vaperetto to S.Stae when trying to find the hotel for the first time... You will soon find y...

We stayed for 3 nights. After a very long flight from Australia, we arrived at the hotel by water taxi - what a great experience and definitely worth the money.
The staff at the hotel were very helpful and no request was too hard.
We stayed in a large room in the annex which was perfect for our family.
The room was very quiet and we slept with the windows open each night.
The hotel is pefectly located - easy to access all the tourist sites, but in a very quaint and quiet area, surrounded by great restaurants and small shops.
We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The annex was great.

This was our third visit to Al Ponte Mocenigo. We loved it the first time and even more each time since. The hotel itself is comfortable and beautifully decorated, with outstanding service. We especially enjoyed the breakfast courtyard, very old and charming, its walls decorated with sculptures and ancient architectural fragments. And the cost is very reasonable.
We love the location of the hotel, only 50 meters from the S. Stae vaporetto stop and close to the old sestiere of S. Croce and S. Polo. The beautiful Ponte Megio is just around the corner and lovely Campo S. Giacomo is three blocks away. This is the real Venice, the one the guidebooks say doesn't exist, with full-time residents living their daily lives and dancing in the Campo on summer nights.

Staff - excellent and friendly.
Hotel - ok
Location - felt uncomfortable walking around the area later in the evening when dark
Room - big, room sloped but was ok
Breakfast - naff
Was disappointed a bit following the rave reviews on here. Went to Venice for my 40th and this just didn't make me go wow. Preferred where I have stayed before in Venice.
Would I stay here again - no

Stayed: December 2013

Having heard horror stories of how Venice is way overpriced, was extremely surprised to find such a reasonably priced beautiful hotel. Can totally see why its rated so high on TA.

We traveled as a couple and just finished a 12 day med cruise with Celebrity. Landing at the cruise port, walk to the People Mover (basically a train) which will take you to the bus station for only 1.5 Euro. If you take the water taxi it costs something like 12 Euro. Once you arrive at the bus station its about a 2 min walk to where all the water taxis are, I believe you take #1 and the hotel is located at S. Stae, 3-4 stops away. The backdoor of the hotel is literally 1 min away from where you get off the taxi, located in a very narrow alley, you will have to look for the sign but its easy to spot.

The hotel itself is small, about 6-7 rooms. We stayed in the smallest room on the ground floor (there are no elevators by the way). And to be honest it was really small! But being in Venice we didn't plan on spending too much time in the room. It was located behind the front desk, and we had no problems with any noise. The bathroom was big and new, no problems there. TV with lots of channels but most in Italian.

All the hotel staff were very friendly. One of them kept apologizing to us regarding the room size, but its not a problem as we booked it for it being about 50 Euros cheaper than the other rooms.

Breakfast is the real highlight of the hotel. Its a buffet platter and you can eat in the charming courtyard. Out of all the similarly priced hotels throughout Europe we've stayed at, this one had the best breakfast. Fresh fruits, pastries, cheese, cereal and cold cuts. There were even 2 ladies there to make and serve you cafe quality coffees and you can get refills. The hotel seems to really cater to the American customer. I would put the value of that breakfast at about 12 Euros.

As other have said, ask the staff for restaurant recommendations. Our favorite was Restaurant Rialto Nuovo, which is right by the Rialto Bridge. They did set meals for 15 Euros with no service charge and even threw in 2 glasses of white wine. There was more than enough food in the package. We ended up having 2 meals there in 3 nights.

Some words on the location of the hotel. 10 minute walk to Rialto Bridge, another 10 minutes to St. Marks Square. 2 stops by water taxi to the train station.

So to sum it up, I'd probably not bother looking for other hotels the next time in Venice. Good price point, great breakfast, charming. Won't get ripped off for staying here, unlike everything else in Venice :)

Oh and Free Wifi that actually works.

Room Tip: Small room on the G/F is cheapest, but its just a bed and a bathroom, a nice bathroom though.

The previous reviews were great and totally accurate. This hotel fully lived up to our expectations. We were tired after our flights from Canada and booked a water taxi to take us directly from the airport to the water-door of the hotel. What a great way to arrive and fully worth it. The hotel is in a perfect location. Away from the crowds of Rialto and the square, but they were easy to get to on foot. We didn't bother taking the Vaporettos. They are too crowded and walking was easy for most of the sights in Venice. Some amazing local restaurants that were recommended by the hotel were less expensive that those around the tourist areas and served excellent local food. We even met people who were staying near St. Mark's square who were travelling to our area to get to eat in the restaurants around the hotel.

The hotel owners made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts were great, served in the hotel courtyard. The rooms and beds were totally fine. We thought that the rooms were a bit small when we arrived, but they were larger than some of the rooms that we stayed in later in the trip, so they were entirely adequate.

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would certainly stay here again if I were to return to Venice. Thanks again Walter and Sandro.
