    Historical Traveler Reviews Foscari Palace Venice

    Lovely stay

    from

    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!!!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    Wonderful hotel

    from

    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.

    Fantastic stay

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Went to the gym again this morning before a quick breakfast of fruit and yoghurt. Another early start at 8.00am for our travels onto Venice, Italy. Stopped at Arnoldstein for a motorway stop - Sudrast Hotel. Actually it has a quaint little hotel attached to the food hall, with an amazing back drop of huge mountains behind (see my picture). Lots of hot food to choose from like roast pork and potatoes, goulash soup, chicken stir fries, cakes, gelatos ... but I ...

    After dinner we all took a gondola ride along one of the many beautiful canals in Venice. Lots of wine at dinner added to the merriment and our attempt at singing some classic Italian songs.

    One of many nights that made our trip so special!

    ... Good, do that and get the heck away from Piazza San Marco before it gets overrun with tourists!’ The Palace was more than just a royal residence – it was truly the heart of the Venetian empire, where all the legal, financial, and political action took place. A highlight of the tour was a visit to the jail cell which Casanova escaped from (allegedly). The story is quite a tale, whether it is true or ...

Lots of elderly people on this cruise, which is pretty much what we expected, but we will later discover, not many people stay awake beyond about 9-30 pm despite there being entertainment till late every night.  There is so much food on board, can't understand how they manage to keep it up to everyone for the whole cruise. We have been told that in the previous 12 days of this cruise (apparently some people ...
