“Quiet haven of peace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Oltre Il Giardino for our 25th wedding anniversary celebratory trip to Venice. It's a peaceful hotel with just 6 rooms. We stayed in one of the Junior Suites which was very clean, comfortable, spacious and cool thanks to the air conditioning. Breakfast was really good - continental style but plenty to keep us going for most of the day. The main thing for us was that all the staff were extremely welcoming, very nice and very helpful. It is well located for all the sights (St Mark's Square is about 15 minutes walk away across the Rialto bridge) and there are plenty of good bars and restaurants close by. the hotel was extremely peaceful. I would highly recommend staying here.

This hotel is located in a lovely quiet neighbourhood in Venice, but is also close to the main sights and the vaparetto stop. The staff are so helpful and friendly and breakfasts lovely, set in the peaceful garden. The AC in the room was very welcome, and the rooms were beautifully furnished. Highly recommended.

I stayed 3 nights in this paradise and I can't imagine something better in Venice. Only 6 beautiful rooms, excellent breakfast in a magnificent garden, super quiet place which is highly appreciated. Lorenzo and Ilaria are super friendly, helpfull and kind persons. Only good things for Oltre Il Giardino

Had a full week in Venice in April. This accommodation was perfect. The location is not in the thick of the tourist area which we really appreciated. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. Great continental breakfast every morning including quality pastries and fresh blood orange juice. Would definitely come here again and would recommend it to all our friends!

We stayed for 4 nights and would highly recommend it. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is exceptional and constant so it's very easy to relax instantly and stay relaxed. We were made to feel really welcome and given good recommendations on restaurants and generally finding our way around. Because its on the canal you can arrive by water taxi or its not too far to walk from the bus station or public water bus. The garden is a real plus and nice to take breakfast outside or retreat from the Venice crowds. The location makes walking around Venice easy and so we were able to visit things and return for a break before venturing out again. My partner chose the hotel for me because I don't like noise at night and I found the place very quiet and easy to sleep. Perhaps a bit more information on drinks and what we could buy in the hotel would be helpful as we had no clue and brought in wine ( though we were given glasses and a corkscrew - again very helpfully).

Room Tip: we had a suite on the top looking on to the garden and canal

One of the best hotels we've been to.. Rooms is gorgeous and garden is a small piece of heaven. Breakfast is nice, with very friendly waiters, who will make you feel at home. A perfect place for a romantic getaway.. Highly recommended

We stayed here for a week on the recommendation of Venetian friends. We're so glad they let us into the secret of Oltre in Giardino, which hides behind a neat little gate by an unremarkable sidebar canal opposite the Frari church. The little garden is a beautiful oasis in one of the busiest corners of town, and we had great weather most of the week meaning we had breakfast outside, which really set us up for the day.
Our room (Cacao) was generously sized and had an ample bathroom to go with the big bedroom which was tastefully furnished, including original art. Much of Venice is quiet at night, and Oltre in Giardino especially so - a very relaxing stay as a result.
The staff were fantastic - Manuele and Ilaria and the breakfast team especially, and the kettle they turned up for us to use for the week was particularly appreciated! We will undoubtedly return.

Room Tip: They're all good!
