Historical Traveler Reviews Foscari Palace Venice
My wife and I stayed at the Foscari Palace from 9-17 November, and would heartily recommend it to anyone looking for comfortable accommodation in Venice. The location, midway along the Grand Canal and therefore in the heart of Venice, is perfect. The hotel is beautifully appointed, and we were delighted with our room, especially the huge bed and the large, wall-mounted TV. The bathroom was large, lovely and warm, and the bath and shower were fantastic. The breakfast was first class, served in a very pleasant dining room. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the service excellent. We will definitely be back!!
This really is a palace!!!
We just got back from a wonderful week in magical Venice. It really is a dream! No cars, no stress. Very nice people and the best food. We found the absolutle best kept secret in hotels. It is the Foscari Palace hotel on Campo santa sofia. It is a 4 star hotel but it should be a 5 or a 10 if there was such a thing. It is a newly renovated actual palace with large clean beautifully decorated rooms and beautiful bathrooms. You arrive at the door by water taxi. The whole building is gorgeous, very light and airy with a large lounge area, beautiful small well stocked bar and if you explore you can find a lovely patio on the roof. The staff was all very friendly and helpful and spoke beautiful english. You really had the feeling they were there to tend to your every need. In off season our room was just over $100 a night. any place else you may have spent $300+ for an equal room. This includes a great breakfast buffet every morning with everything from pastries, yogurt to fresh fruit and pancakes and bacon. The hotel is not right in the touristy part of town but a very pleasant residential part and about 5 minutes to the center of everything. There are gondolas right outside the door. also the very best restaurants everywhere. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic fairytale place to stay.
Does not honour bookings
Do not trust the reservation service of this hotel because it could ruin your stay in Venice. I made a reservation for 5 and 6 November through Venere for Foscari Palace Hotel. On arrival the hotel reception claimed that a reservation had not been made although they were shown a copy confirmation email issued by themselves. After various consultations we were allocated a room for the of 5 November but told that we had to leave the next day. Another hotel was found for the following night by the Foscari management, but of a far lower standard and much further out from the main centre. We felt very disappointed in the way we were treated
My family and I stayed at the Foscari Palace Hotel from October 8th to the 11th. We asked for the suite with a view and got a two room suite that faced the canal and the Rialto Market. The room was fantastic with a front room living-dining area with large windows and a flat panel tv. My teenage kids had there own room which combined with ours to make a three room suite. The staff, breakfast and atmosphere were superb. They had a free happy hour on Saturday night and gave us goodie boxes at check out. We will definitely stay here again if they can stay so affordable.
4 of us stayed from the 5th to the 8th October 2004, having found the hotel on Expedia. What a find! Friendly and helpful staff (except for a rather officious temporary manager), fantastic rooms with modern flat screen TVs (if you need them in Venice). Our room was large and in fact the bathroom was designed for a disabled person, which shows great foresight for a modern hotel. Our friends' room was smaller but still extremely comfortable with a great bathroom.
A really great breakfast with fanastically fresh fruit. The hotel is in a great position on the opposite side of The Grand Canal to the fish market and very close to the Ca' D'Oro Vaporetto stop and the Ca D'Oro is almost next door.
The hotel staff recomended some really good restaurants nearby.
Unforgettable, for all the RIGHT reasons
Where do I start. This hotel is an absolute gem, the rooms (we stayed in a superior) are fantastic the quality is exceptional. Every detail taken care of.
The Shower for example is a full body one, complete with 6 body jets, and a foot reviver. The bath is a Jacuzzi, and there is also a digital sound system in everyroom, so you can be invigorated whilst listening to Vivaldi. If TV is your thing, although I can't understand why in Venice, then check out the wall mounted flat TV.
The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and nothing is too much trouble.
Make sure you use the roof terrace, its views over venice are spectacular.
The square below Campo Santa Sofia, is a wonderful quiet area wher people just sit to read or relax, and for 40c you can jump on a gondola which will take you across the Grand Canal, where you can check out the fabulous markets leading up to the Rialto Bridge.
The Hotel is new (June 04) so make sure you get there before it gets in all the brochures for next year and the price doubles!
Just one thing to mention on this, is that it is new. If you want old, battered, lived in, and antiques in your room, then this may not be for you.
My personal view, was that this is an outstanding Hotel with quality throughout, and I would have no hesitation in recomending it to you.
It made my wife and I's anniversary a very memorable one indeed.
Fantastic Foscari Palace
The Foscari Palace opened in June 2004, and I was lucky enough to stay there for 5 days in July. The first reason you should stay in this hotel is the location. Its is right on the Grand Canal (some of the rooms overlook the canal), right opposite the Rialto market (fresh fish, fruit and vegetable every day - a real slice of Venetian life), and less than 10 minutes walk from the famous Rialto Bridge. Transport-wise, the Ca D'Oro vaporetto stop is less than 2 mins away, and the traghetto (a gondola 'taxi' that takes you across the Grand Canal) is right outside the hotel lobby.
The second reason to stay here - comfort. The hotel has all the modern conveniences that you would expect to find in a 4* hotel, but being small (only 28 rooms), it feels much more private. The hotel has a roof terrace with views over the canal, and the upper level gives you a panoramic view over the whole city.
In all, the hotel and the courteous and helpful staff made for a great stay - I would highly reccommend it.

... a peppermint tea and kiwi were in order! And later on, some free wine and nuts...!! We headed out to a local Trattoria for dinner. Italians eat late. Most restaurants don't even open until 7pm. Greeted with glasses of mixed aperol/prosecco and bread. Disappointingly there are no vegetarian restaurants here - the local Venetian specialty being seafood. And lots of it. But there were a few vegetarian options. I had plain pasta with local vegetables, which were so ...
... pretty spacious. I booked a private room as you can get a cheap ticket and share it with six people. There was ample over head storage space to place your luggage if you were an olympic weight lifter and could heave 70lbs bags over your head. We opted to let it consume 50% of the room real estate instead. I think the luggage has the first class seats on this trip. There was a little private sink and power (but no wifi). ...

It took much longer to get on a ferry or Vapareta this time, but we saved a lot of time walking back to Saint Marco's Square because things were beginning to seem familiar. Time to find a different ...

Lyndsay then took on map duties and got us to the correct restaurant (called ???) which unfortunately was booked out for the entire rest of our stay, for both lunch and dinner. Another restaurant was found close by and was perfectly adequate.
Tomorrow's blog will tell of finding by chance somewhere else that more that made up for not eating where a fictional character ate.
... maybe they felt sorry for us, but anyway very nice of them! So for the first time on this trip I actually had a private shower and toilet, result!
The campsite was great, probably one of the best places I've stayed at so far, they had a bar, restaurant, supermarket, two swimming pools and hot tubs! Might try staying at campsite a little more often if they are all like this.
