I took El to Venice for a romantic birthday present. On the flight over she said that she'd wanted to come to Venice ever since seeing the Gareth Gates video for "Stupid Mistake". She chose to the sing the song throughout the trip...hmmm.
The hotel receptionist told us the best way to …
We found this mini break on Travelzoo offers - £174 each. 3* Hotel for 3 nights and flights from London Gatwick. "Flightcentre" handled the booking and were really helpful (even down to finding us an alternative hotel having taken advice from "Tripadvisor". Both links are below: * www.flightcentre.co.uk * www.tripadvisor.co.uk As we were travelling …
We had a very good drive to Venice, some scary scenes around us as a truck swung across two lanes refusing to let a car pass and the mad driver of the car kept trying to speed past. We had no idea what the truck driver was doing until a km or so up the road he pulled out and we saw he was trying to slow people as another truck was on fire. We …
... husband. I opted to stay and check out the city. I didn't really mind having the time to myself, visiting the shops in the piazza, and walking by the lake despite the rain. However just as the group was leaving for their ride, the captain got word that due to the rains the level of water in the lake was rising and the the lock needed to be closed. This meant he had to move the boat by 11:00 am and the riders needed to ...
... to our hotel. Went into the Basilica easily, walked around and went upstairs to the museum and the loggia. Got a great view of Piazza San Marco with its crowds, fancy restaurants with bands and people out having a good time. Signs in the Basilica say no photos but that didn't seem to make any difference to most people. I follow these rules and then are enforced in museums but I did take a couple of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Palazzo Guardi Venice
Excellent hotel and wonderful location, a few blocks from the Accademia bridge (one of only 3 that cross the Grand Canal, which means that you can walk to many attractions). It is about a 15 minute walk to San Marco square, so it is close enough to that must-see but far enough that you are away from the tourist-trap restaurants. (An excellent restaurant very close to the hotel is Ristorante Taverna San Traveso. Great food and good prices.) The hotel was very clean, roomy, new furnishings and recently renovated. There are actually 2 buildings: we were in the newer, more modern one that is able to accommodate a family of four. (We did not see the rooms in the other building but were told they were for doubles and decorated in the more traditional Venetian style). So although the front desk is at the "main" building, it has a direct telephone connection and is only 2-minutes away. There is often cleaning and/or breakfast staff on hand as well, and all the staff was very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was great and served in a beautiful room.
I was very disappointed in this hotel. It has just been renovated, and the rooms are very nice and clean. The staff is friendly. The breakfast room is lovely and the breakfast is generous. As long as there are no problems on your visit, you'll have a good time. But our bathroom emitted a very noxious smell, and nothing was done to change that, even after we complained. When we tried to get the fan to work in our room--and it did not--the desk staff were sympathetic, but claimed we'd have to wait; they could not do anything without checking with the owners, who seemed always off the premises.
NIGHTMARE to find, took us at least an hour. However, the hotel itself is very clean and new. Great location, just 10 mins walk to St Mark's Square, don't expect any views from your hotel window though! The rooms are lovely, a lot of care and attention has gone into the decor. Breakfast was decent and varied.Staff were polite but not that friendly, and when questioned were more interested in getting rid of you than anything else!The noise at night was the biggest disaster. Because all the rooms border onto reception, there is noise from the staff, telephones ringing, radio's blaring etc. This goes on all night, and then you have to deal with the noise from the breakfast area at 8.00 the next morning! If you're looking for a lie in, this is definitely not the place to stay! However, if it wasn't for the disturbance, this is a fairly priced hotel in a great location. I have written to the hotle since advising them of my feedback but they have neglected to reply!
My wife and I just had a short stay at the Palazzo Guardi and are glad to send you our report since it is positive on the whole. We had a little problem in finding the hotel which is located in a small street called Calle Pistor meaning Baker Street, but quite different from Sherlock Holmes abode since this street is no more than four feet wide.
