TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Antiche Figure Venice
Great hotel located right on the Grand Canal across from the train station. Rooms are spacious and clean, staff are all friendly and very helpful.
Breakfast is standard fare, but all fresh and delicious. There is a bar with indoor and outdoor seating.
Location is right near the Scalzi Bridge and Ferrovia vaporetto stops.
This our second time staying here and we would recommend it whole-heartedly.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Antiche Figure Venice
It made our holiday
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.
Staff were incredibly helpful, they were always very glad to help, especial mention is Alessandro at reception, his help was invaluable, he gave us plenty of tips where to go, what to see, where to eat etc...The only negative comment is the breakfast was not great as someone else has mentioned, but we found a great Patissery just over the bridge, which had the best coffee in Venice, and yes if you stand up like the locals, two cappuccinos were less than €2.
Other than that, I cannot recomend enough this hotel, it truly was a great experience. A tip when you arrive to Venice, instead of getting the water taxi or water bus, just ask for the suttle to Piazzale di Roma, it only cost €3 and leaves you just 2 minutes from the hotel. Once you arrive to P. Roma follow indication for the Train Station, the hotel is exactly in front of the station on the other side of the canal...we save ourselves €80 fare for the water taxi!
Delightful , friendly and excellent value
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!
Hotel Antiche Figure is Great!
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.
Nice hotel.. would return in the future
Stayed at the Hotel Antiche Figure on November 11, 2003 for one night.
Although not much time was spent at the hotel because of sightseeing in Venice it was a wonderful hotel to come back to relax.The room was small but very nicely decorated.. bed was comfortable..also had a stocked minibar. The bathroom was beautiful all in marble with murano glass lighting. Best of all was it had a rack in which you could place your towels and it would heat them while you were in the shower or tub.The breakfast in the morning was quite good. There was cereals, crossiants, fruit, cheese and meat along with fruit juice and coffee.
If you are going to stay there... if you want the lights in your room to come on search close to the door for a card holder which turns on the lights.. once removed after a minute the lights go out.. thought that was neat. Overall I enjoyed my brief stay at this hotel but would return in the future. Venice is beautiful so I will be back.

We arrived in Venice safely and a few minutes early. It was raining when we landed and was pretty much overcast and rainy all day. No worries though, it's still Venice. Breezed through passport control. Our bags arrived with us this trip, though one was just about the last one off the plane just to get our hearts pumping. Just needed to buy our bus …
Our stay was over at the Venice Hilton and we made the transfer---FINALLY--to our ship. We were anxious and anticipation was high. We were about to get on the first Viking ocean liner that had made only a few trips. As we entered the ship, we descended the grand staircase to a waiter holding a tray of champagne flutes and we toasted our pending journey--just like in ...
... st and 2nd dinner sittings. The 1st sitting is at 6:30 whilst the 2nd sitting is not until 9pm. This is to accommodate for the Italians and Spanish on board who traditionally don’t eat evening meal until later. Although we specified a 1st sitting on our booking form (and having it confirmed) we have been allocated 2nd dinner sitting!! This is not a problem but we’ll need to exercise a ...
... the islands. I called the apartment manager and arranged to meet her in just a few minutes, hopped (figuratively speaking; I did still have all of that luggage) on the No. 1 waterbus, and 2 stops down got off at San Marcuola. Maybe 10 minutes later, Laura arrived to take me to the apartment. I see why they don’t bother giving you directions directly to the apartment. We went down streets and alleys, over one bridge (thankfully, with my luggage), down more streets ...
... Much more so than some of the so called "art" at the Picasso Gallery in Antibes, France. We bought rolls & wine for dinner tonight to have in our room. I acquired some wine glasses from the bar as be buggered if I was going to pay $300 a night for accommodation & drink out of the plastic cups they provided. After dinner we headed for the water taxis to have an experience of Venice on the Grand Canal at night. Again we got great seats at the front of the ferry, only to ...
