“Fabulous place in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Venice is expensive and this Hotel is no exception but the rooms are spacious and well appointed - luxurious actually. The staff is superb - endless patience with our questions and inability to operate the electronic keys ;-) They also added a third bed to a room when an additional niece joined our group at the last minute. The location is just a block off the grand canal very close to the Rialto bridge which really helps when you get a little lost in the maze of Venice streets and canals. Make sure you understand the electronic notification system for getting your room cleaned. We didn't and accidentally left the occupied light on all day so didn't get maid service.

Room Tip: Fourth floor rooms are a bit smaller but have wood beam cathedral ceiling and quick access to roof t...

Overall very good, luxury rooms, great breakfast and central location and close to grand canal. Easy to find from Rialto bridge. Roof top terrace ideal, but closing for winter. Limited TV for English.

This was our first stop on a family trip to Italy. First time ever in Italy, so we were very excited. A la Commedia was wonderful! The hotel is a short walk from the Rialto stop. It was a great location!

After spilling some luggage into the canal while exiting the water taxi, we were a little discouraged. Once we got to the hotel, they were quick to offer us bags to stow the wet garments while waiting for our room. The bags and the rest of our luggage were stored until check in time. Meanwhile, we started exploring Venice.

Are rooms were ready when we return. They honored my request for 2 rooms on the same floor, near each other. The rooms were great and the bathrooms were luxurious (just like it's pictured).They brought in all our luggage promptly.

We did go up to the rooftop bar. Lovely view and very relaxing. Yes the drinks were pricey, but they were good! Definitely have to stop in for a SPITZ!.

The breakfast buffet was awesome and the staff was very attentive, Definitely would stay at this hotel again!

Not sure what to say about this hotel, its not fabulous but its not bad either. We gave it four stars because its better than average but its not really a 4 star. I think i would have preferred to be on one of the canals, for a more picturesque setting.
However this hotel is nicely located close to the Rialto stop on the water taxi so coming in from airport and leaving to go train station is quite easy.
The rooms are nice, but ours was a bit on the small side.
I think overall it's a nice hotel it may be that I just didn't love Venice...there were 12 cruise ships in port when we were there and it was just way too crowded.
We ended up leaving Venice and going to Burano, a small island about an hour from Venice known for its lace production, completely charming and picturesque.

As the rest of the reviews say this is a nice hotel in a good position with friendly staff and well decorated rooms. The roof bar is nice.

We had a junior suite which was on the back of the hotel looking directly onto a private house and it was the shady side.

The couple we were with had a standard room on the front sunny side with a nice balcony and the room wasn't much smaller, so the lesson is ask for a room on the front of the hotel if you like a suny balcony and don't bother with the suites.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are sunny, on the back shady

This hotel was perfect last time ,3 years ago and on our return it still is perfect.
Our suite was beautifully decorated and appointed.Good air con,luxury bathroom.Attention to detail excellent.The most of the staff were still working here as on our previous stay,which is a good sign I think.
We loved the roof terrace for cocktails in the evening with St Mark`s Campanile in the distance.The location is perfect close to the Grand Canal ,Rialto and walking distance to St Mark`s square,BUT away from the hussle and noise of the Grand Canal.
The star rating is reflected in the prices,but certainly worth it!

This hotel's location was excellent, an easy walking distance to the major tourist attractions and surrounded by many restaurants and cafes. Not sure about previous reviews regarding breakfast as ours was very disappointing and the coffee didn't taste of coffee.
