“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for two nights 7/22 and 7/23/13. We booked two rooms. One room included a crib for my 1 yr. old granddaughter. We were all very pleased with the cleanliness and overall appearance of the room. The staff was friendly and helpful. The property was literally steps away from the vaporetto which made it extremely easy to visit the other islands. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel was such a let down. I liked that it was located in a quiet area and near the edge of the city. It was a quick ride to take the water ferry (15 euros each) to the airport when we left. When we arrived from Florence, it only took 5 minutes with a water taxi. We overpaid 60 euros and I recommend you pay less with a water ferry.

We arrived at noon and they already had our room ready and I appreciated that. I had to get a map to find my room, which was located about a block away, which was weird. The room was very old and tiny. The TV was only 13 inches with the satelitte device dangling with rope underneath. It was very pathetic and very poorly done. There is no elevator and we had to carry our luggage up the stairs. We couldn't get the TV to work or the free wi-fi to work. I also realized that we never received a map like we did from the other hotels we stayed at in Rome and Florence. I went back to ask for a map the front desk was very rude about it. He was very little help at all. I asked what the major sites were to visit besides San Marcos Plaza and he said that there were lots of galleries, museums and churchs and that's it. I asked how far away it was and he said that it was a 30 minute walk. It was like pulling teeth to get info and I finally gave up and just left. He didn't even offer any directions on how to get anywhere.

In the evening, I went back to ask how to get the TV to work and there was a very old gentlemen that spoke very little English and said that he couldn't help because he didn't know much about TVs. That was very upsetting. The next morning we had breakfast and it was weak. They only had yogurt, croissant and coffee/tea/juice.

The next day they got the TV working and I never got the wi-fi working. Based on our experience here, I would never come back and don't recommend it at all.

Very friendly hotel in lovely part of Venice, right on the lagoon. Great location for vaporetta.
Hotel owner very friendly and helpful, made us feel very welcome. 24 hour reception great so you don't have to worry about coming in late. We had a lovely room over looking the lagoon, although it was busy we enjoyed the coming and going of the boats. Lovely friendly local restaurants and bars nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking lagoon

Stayed here for 3 nights and very easy to find, less than 5 minutes walk down the sea front from the water bus stop. Very friendly welcome and a really nice, classically decorated bedroom with lovely exposed wooden beams. Nice views of the lagoon. No lift, but that was not a problem at all. Good bathroom with shower.
Drawbacks, whilst the bed was a double, the mattress was two together. They did not slip apart, but you knew the gap/join was there. Breakfast was the weakest part. Cellophane wrapped croissants with a long shelf life, not the best quality bread rolls and cheap yogurts.
However, ask me if I would stay there again and I would definitely say yes, the drawbacks did not distract from everything else

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in May.
Located right near to the stop Fondamente Nove, this hotel is in a perfect location, overlooking the lagoon, and within a few minutes walk, there are bars, restaurants and shops.
Everything is within easy reach (however be prepared to do lots of walking around Venice)!
Our room was on the top floor (no 8) and was perfect, and with a view across the lagoon, who needs to watch the tv! The bed was very comfortable and the excellent double glazing blocked out the hustle and bustle of the activities on the street below.
Breakfast was basic (rolls, croissants, biscuits, yoghurt and some cold meat plus fruit juice, tea or coffee) but there was plenty of it should you need.
The manager Matteo was very welcoming, funny and made our stay pleasant. He has a passion for his city and it was very interesting talking to him about this. We would have no hesitation booking this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: The hotel is small (only 8 rooms), so do book in advance and ask for a top floor room overlooking th...

The description the hotel offers is misleading. The air conditioning is there but it's disconnected, the manager said they only connect it on July and August. We had to keep our window open during the night which is a bit scary because the roof from the building behind was at the level of our window, so anyone could easily climb in through there. The hotel also has an "annex" which is not annexed to the hotel, it is about 5 blocks away. So even though the reception is waterfront, your room may not be there, but 5 blocks away. This is also where the breakfast room is, it is not inside the main hotel building. It was clean though, and the breakfast was fine.

Matteodevenessia, Manager at Hotel Vecellio, responded to this review, May 22, 2013
I'm sorry but:
1)There's no Hotels (including Luxury 5 stars) in Venice providing with Air Conditioning in this season.
2)Don't be scary. Venice is one the safest city in the world and houses are closed each other, It's Venice such as like this, not Hotel Vecellio.
3)This review is for another place The Guest House Piccolo Vecellio, we are clear to divide the 2 places (in every conformation is written so clear), the travel agency sold your trip is less clear so you supposed to sleep at Hotel Vecellio.
