A great find
This is a great hotel with gorgeous decor. The rooms are spacious and airy. The proprietor couldn't have been more helpful and was genuinely friendly. It's about 10-15 minutes walk from the main attractions and close to the vaporetto stop Arsenale. We really enjoyed our stay here and will be returning.
Great personal service!
wow!!! One of the most pleasant hotels I ever stayed in! When I arrived, there seemed to be a problem with the room because of the heavy rainfall. They transfered me to an appartment, just opposite the hotel, for the first night, where I could use all facilities: refrigerator, cooking equipment, ...
To apologize, they offered me a double room for the following nights instead of a single one.
The staff takes the time to have a little chat and are very polite and friendly. Nicely decorated rooms in Venetian style. Location is very good, about 15 min walk from St Marks Square and 5 min from the nearby vaporetto-stop Arsenale. And in the middle of the real Venetian-life.
Only minor point: no elevator, so lots of steps to get to the second floor. But there is a chair-lift for disabled persons.
I absolutely recommend this hotel and would stay there again!
Very Pleasant trip
We recently had the pleasure of a 3 night stay at the Corte Contarina and we agree with your trip advisor this hotel is very under rated. From the extremely clean and well presented rooms to the very friendly and pleasant manor of the staff, it made our trip most enjoyable.
Friendly and good location
This was an ideally located hotel, not too far away from the main areas of the Rialto and San Marco, but away enough for some peace and quiet at the end of the day.(Get off at the Arsenale vaporetti stop from the Alilaguna boat from the airport. Over Two bridges and up the via Garibaldi.Take the passage to the left of the church and a left again.)
The hotel was great and really clean and comfortable. Good value for Venice,
The only drawback I can see is the steep stairs, although there is a stairlift if required.
The staff are really child friendly, and were great.
Hotel had everything we needed including hairdryer, minibar,safe and lovely but small bathrooms.
A home from home
A very friendly, clean, welcoming hotel - I would recomend it to anyone.
this is an excellent hotel,the rooms are beautifully furnished and very clean.The people here are very friendly and will help you with anything you need.This little hotel definately made our stay in venice a very special one and we would definately recommend it .
Lovely hotel. First class hospitality.
My wife and 6 month old son stayed at this hotel for a few days in February 2003. It is very clean and the rooms are well decorated. The staff are friendly, and very helpful. This was much needed with a 6 month old baby! The breakfast is more than adequate to start the day and is typical of a continental breakfast in this part of the world. The hotel is situated of the Via Garibaldi and the boat stops and the St Marks Square are within easy walking distance. To find it; look for St Pietro Church on the Via Garibaldi and go down the alley at the left hand side and take the first alley to the left. I have no hesitation in recommending this little hotel and would stay there again. We had a very enjoyable stay there.
Excellent little hotel
I stayed at this hotel with my family in September 2003. I had booked it on the internet at the last minute, when there was very little else avaialable - and we were very pleasantly surprised by the hotel when we got there. It is in a 'residential' area rather than a touristy area, and quite hard to find - but it is only about 10 minutes walk from major tourist areas, and there are some very good small local restaurants which are cheaper than the central areas. It is also very handy for some of the main boat stops (Arsenale, Zaccaria)
The standard of the rooms was very good, and the bathrooms were very clean, if a bit small. The air conditioning was excellent, and was needed at the beginning of September ! The hotel would be a problem for people who are unable to climb stairs, as there are a lot of steep ones ! There is a stair lift to the first floor, but not to the top. The breakfast room is small but adequate. The staff were extremely helpful, and spoke good English.
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this hotel. This is at least a 3 star hotel. It has been recently renovated (2003) and the new owner(Mauro) is there daily to assure things run smoothly. It is quiet and a little off the beaten path but easily accessible to the St.
Mark's Square area (5 minute walk). The rooms are adequately sized and nicely accented with wood. The bathrooms are small, typical of this part of the world. A drawback is there is no elevator and stairs are steep when carrying your luggage. We were on the top floor and getting there seemed forever at times.
The breakfast is typically continental and adequate. The beds are comfortable and there is daily maid service. The front desk will help you with ANYTHING you need and will arrange for anything you want to do.

We said goodbye to Salzburg and boarded the train for Venice with a planned arrival mid afternoon however this was not to be for all of us!

Somehow or another one of the buildings that we went into changed into a hospital. Suddenly we are in the middle of a hospital campus and have no idea how to get out!

High points of Italy? Well, Cinque Terre was beautiful but once you've seen one small coastal town you've seen them all. That and it's a bit 'exclusive' feeling. I liked the relative grit of Genoa and it's prostitutes, probably even more than I liked Rome. But then I've been fascinated with Genoa since Edward Fox' lead character in the 1973 film The Day of the Jackal makes a stop there. If ...
