Can only endorse what others have said, this is a fabulous place. The staff are particularly friendly without being intrusive and all the shared areas and our room were spacious and tastefully furnished. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

First visit to Venice for wife and I. Our five-day stay at Oltre il Giardino exceeded all our expectations. Super location, great staff, delicious breakfast and wonderful suite. Perfect accomodations for the perfect city to visit.

Lovely rooms, absolutely delicious breakfasts, incredibly helpful and polite staff, just fab and a very special place for my Birthday. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

It is not too far from the bus/train station to walk 15mins max, you can take a water taxi. But we enjoyed walking through the streets as we arrived.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are good

Our suite consisted of two rooms, one with a sitting area, a couch and two chairs and a large desk, perfect for the computer, and windows that opened. The bedroom was equally spacious with a most comfortable king size bed and crisp bed linens. The bathroom had a bathtub, huge walk in shower, towel warmer and table for toiletries and plenty of fluffy towels. The walk in closet was a bonus.

The living room was transformed into the breakfast room with white tablecloths, very satisfying breakfast food and delicious coffee.

The location is perfect, quiet and safe. The walled garden is a oasis from the crowds.

The best part is the most accommodating staff who were always happy to assist you. They printed out our boarding passes and on the day of our departure the hotel owner called a water taxi, walked us out and placed our bags in the taxi. Most accommodating indeed!

We stayed in the Suite Canale room. It was a wonderful room with a seperate living room, bedroom and 2 bathrooms. There was plenty of storage areas for clothes, which seems to be a rare thing in Europe. We had a nice view of the small canal that went past the hotel. The staff at Oltre il Giardino were fantastic. They went out of their way to help us and answer any questions that we had. For our anniversary they left us a bottle of wine which I thought was a very nice touch. If I was going to mention anything negative it would be that at night it got pretty cold (we were there in October) and there was no heat. But that is not the hotel's fault. They were not able to turn it on yet. We just snuggled under lots of blankets and slept with socks on and we were fine. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Perfectly charming family-run small hotel (six rooms) with its own private garden. Located just off the beaten track, it is a ten-fifteen minute walk from the train station and the principal tourist areas. Comfortable rooms, updated bathrooms, excellent breakfast and very helpful staff. We had great restaurant recommendations and reservations made at them throughout our stay. The open bar in the lobby area is an extra special touch. It is nice to have an address like this in a city not always known for high quality good value accommodations. Definitely worth repeat visits.
