“Simply perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Our family of four stayed (including 2 teenage boys) for 5 nights for our 25th anniversary trip. Upon our arrival, there was a bottle of Prosecco, glasses and a lovely note waiting for us - thank you! We booked the 5th floor, 2 room apartment (room 503, I think) and it was beyond my expectations. It was 2 very large rooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen area (which we didn't use) and a washer/dryer combo (which we did use and it was very handy but slow). We did appreciate being able to use the fridge and dishes at no charge. There was a view from every window. Every afternoon, we enjoyed watching the gondolas (and often, listening to the accompanying musicians). This hotel was in a perfect location and we were easily able to walk everywhere. The staff was friendly and helpful. This place is a true gem in the heart of Venice!

Room Tip: Although we didn't use the kitchen or plan to cook, it would probably be worth the $50 to do so.

Our family of 5 stayed in room 300 of the Residence Corte Grimani. As many reviewers have indicated, the rooms are actually small apartments and very spacious. Our room had a single large bedroom with two beds and couch/bed, a family room with a couch/bed, a small kitchen, and two bathrooms.

The room was extremely clean and well kept. There is a lot of space for luggage and several large closets. The beds were reasonably comfortable and the room was always cool. The kitchenette worked out great as we found a small grocery store nearby and made our own breakfasts. The single TV in the living room was 15"-17" and provided only local channels.

The staff was very friendly and helped us throughout our stay - Venice is a complex city to traverse so their advice was greatly appreciated.

The location of this room is fantastic! You can see the canal from the windows and often hear the gondola singers during the early evenings. San Marco and Rialto bridge are 5-10 minute walks and there are lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. The hotel entrance can be difficult to find the first time and I highly recommend getting directions beforehand.

Comfortable, convenient and cozy, this really is the ideal spot in Venice to stay with a family. Donatella and Guido at the front desk were like personal guides, and the location is incredibly convenient to the whole city with everything we needed just a few steps away.

MY BIGGEST TIPS: 1: Book this place right away. I doubt you'll find better Venetian accommodations for you and your kids.
2: Before you travel to Venice, get detailed walking directions to the hotel from the Rialto bridge. It's tricky. And even though the hotel has its own landing area for taxis, our driver wouldn't take us the whole way. Have a map and directions.
And 3: Stock your kitchen when you get there. The front desk will happily direct you to a very close grocery store.

I really have nothing negative to say about Residence Corte Grimani. It was blissful, restful, comfortable and ideal.

Room Tip: We were in 501, with windows on three sides. It was amazing. It's on the top floor, so the ceili...

This is not a hotel. The Corte Grimani provides rooms/apartments. The one we had included a small kitchen (which we did not use). As we were travelling with our daughter the apartment had a sofa bed in the kitchen.
On reflection I think we should have used the kitchen as we found it impossible to find anywhere on Venice to get a pleasant breakfast. We were thoroughly fed up with heated sandwiches and why do they always want to fill croissants with sweet goo?
Back the the hotel. It is generally quiet although we were in 202 and there seemed to be quite a bit of noise from above. There was also another more pleasant noise; the hotel is very close to a small canal (what a surprise in Venice). In the evening a few of the gondoliers sing whilst they are working - excellent!
Final point, the hotel is only about 150 metres from San Marco and it therefore very convenient.
Oh and one other point, the gentleman on reception is a true sweety!

Hotel central, rooms spacious and clean - air conditioning was an absolute blessing. Staff very helpful at all times and gave good pointers. We were on the 5th floor with a stunning view over the canal and singing gondoliers. Would recommended to any family - we were a family of 6 and loved the fact that we were able to prepare our own meals from time to time with fresh produce from the nearby market. Elsette

We are a family of five and we only stayed here one night but the accommodation was spotless, very tastefully decorated with plenty space for the five of us. The staff were extremely helpful and very nice indeed.

A great spacious apartment in the heart of Venice. After one day, you'll have mastered the canals and bridges and find it easy to navigate anywhere and this central location means that you are only 10-20 mins from anywhere. We also took a water taxi from the train station and to the airport as the door-to-door service is worth the extra cost ( but with 4 of us- the airport cost was not much higher than the boat from the Rialto which would have been a difficult walk with all the luggage!) The staff is very helpful- even drawing a route to the restaurants they recommended on our map to make navigation easier The rooms are large and clean and airconditioned which is essntial in summer in Venice. The singing gondoliers ensure you know you are in Venice! Ciao Venezia!!! A great place to stay and couldn't recommended it more highly!

Room Tip: Just down the way is Rosa Salva which is great for coffee and breakfast!
