Tpatel stayed here on Jul 16, 2013 during their trip titled: Tina's Vienna Journey.
Arrived in Venice mid-afternoon after a 2 hour flight from London. Our hotel is in a great location, across from the train station, right on the Grand Canal.
Weather was VERY hot, so our main task for the rest of the afternoon was to seek out the 'best gelato in Venice' but finding La Boutique del Gelato proved to be quite a challenge! …
... a beautiful day, and the be wandering around such an amazing place made it that much better! Simply being in a city is enough for me! Avoiding the tourist traps and just wandering and exploring is almost more enjoyable than trying to pack your days full of museums and excursions. Walking down the streets and just observing your surroundings and taking it all in is so important! We made it back to our hostel with a little more ...
... and wander briefly in a fairly touristy area before returning home to put on warmer clothes and head back out for dinner. One of the things we're happy about here is that we are staying in more of a local backstreet area, and for dinner we point ourselves in the opposite direction to the touristy main street of this neighbourhood. I had noticed in both London and Paris that the Italian restaurants often have staff out front, touting the ...
... would have set us back €100 which we could not really justify. It was cold and sprinkling on the day we were there so the ride honestly didn't seem worth it- we promised ourselves we would come back during summer when we are a little older to fully embrace the venetian lifestyle. The town does however feel romantic and is very picturesque. After a few hours sight-seeing we were ready for some R&R so we headed back to Verona (again only just making our connections) for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Antiche Figure Venice
We stayed in this hotel at the beggining of Sept for 5 days and it made our holiday. The room and bathroom were on the small side, but beautifly decorated in the venetian style. The hotel is just a ride away from San Marco on the No 1 vaporetto which stops in front of train station and it is very frequent (one of the best ways to do a tour of the Canal without paying the astronomical prices for private tours). We found a quick way to walk to Piazza San Marco and we were there in 20 minutes every day, which allows us to get to know different parts of venice.
We stayed here for 3 nights in August and found this a quality hotel. Although the room (202)was quite small ,it was beautifully decorated with a delightful bathroom and full air con. The balcony offered a stupendous view of the Grand Canal.Although a little noisy a.m. this was atmospheric rather than annoying.The staff were friendly,helpful and also very attractive ! The bar is adequate. My only criticism would be that more attention could be given to the paved side area outside ,adjacent to the bar which could be used by guests to greater advantage . The breakfast also is rather basic and bland .Other than that it is excellent value for money given my experience of 4 star establishments in this location. A little known gem , ideally placed opposite St Lucia train station on the otherside of the canal and a vaporetto stop!
This hotel was one of our best experiences during our two week stay in Italy. We had a balcony view of the Grand Canal that was wonderful. (Only a few rooms have a balcony, so be sure to ask for one.) The hotel staff members were very helpful and fluent in English. The rooms were small but luxerious and clean. The hotel appeared to be very well maintained and recently renovated. The location is excellent. It is directly across the canal from the train station with a bridge located nearby. It also located only two blocks from Piazza Roma which is the drop off point for buses going to and from the airport. The Vaporetto (water bus) stop is also located nearby. The cost of the hotel is moderately high but worth every penny. I observed while there that prices were negotiable. You can't do better in Venice for this price.
LOVED THIS HOTEL
Absolutely gorgeous hotel!!! great location - across from the train station. Super service - and most of all amazing and clean rooms. Would recommend this hotel anytime. Better than any other hotel we stayed at in Italy. Upgrade for 30 euros to the room with a balcony in the front. well worth it.
Perfect Venice Hotel
We stayed for 3 nights at the end of May and loved it! We arrived really early but didn't have to wait long for the room. The hotel is directly across from the train station and was very easy to find. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Staying in Venice is expensive but we got a pretty good deal with Expedia. We were able to upgrade for 30 euros to a suite with a balcony overlooking the grand canal. If it is avaliable I'd definately recommend it, the room was amazing! The bed room and bathroom were so big and beautiful (it's the one in all their pictures). We really liked the breakfasts, there were lots of choices and I thought everything was very good. I would definately stay here again, I loved everything about it!
Great hotel, great location
A little off the radar from the Rialto and St. Mark's Square this hotel, completely refurbished in 2003, is not yet on the radar. High on both style and substance the hotel is located right on the Grand Canal and is easy walking distance across the bridge from the train station. The best part was our room, which was quiet (double-paned windows) and comfortable with an ample American-style bathroom. Service was beyond expectations; when we wanted to stay an extra night the desk clerk allowed us to use his PC to cancel another hotel and book an airline ticket. The hotel is walking distance from a laudromat and grocery store.
Can't add much to what the others said. We stayed here on our honeymoon last month. Great hotel, perfect location, friendly staff, spacious and well-appointed rooms. We would absolutely stay here again!
Be sure to take advantage of the things they offer, too: a boat to Murano and Burano, and a gondola ride for 35 euros pp. A great deal!
Elegant and romantic
Stayed 2 nights in February 2004. Great location, opposite St Lucia train station across the bridge as well as the water bus stops.
Nice boutique hotel... very elegant deco, rich colors, very clean overall and adequate size.
Service and communication is excellent, day and night. Great staff...
very friendly and helpful. Simple yet adequate breakfast spread.
Will definitely return again, my wife loves it.... added to the romance in beautiful Venice.
