    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel do Pozzi Venice

    This is the one!


    I was responsible for booking a hotel in Venice for my husband and myself, as well as 2 fellow travelers. It was a challenging assignment and after HOURS of reading and re-reading reviews, I decided upon Hotel do Pozzi. What an excellent selection. Location, location, location! It is a short walk to the beautiful Piazza San Marco. Our first trip to Venice was brief, but a pure delight. This small hotel was comfortable, cool, clean, quiet, friendly, cozy, and all I had hoped for. The courtyard, where breakfast was served, was an added bonus and the food was perfect to start off the day. We were here for only 36 hours the end of July 2004 but I plan to return and will once again, choose Hotel do Pozzi. STOP reading reviews, this is the one!

    Pleasant Hotel


    My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay here on July 21 and 22. The hotel is in a great location just a short walk from St. Mark's square. The room was very cute and clean, and the bathroom was small but spotlessly clean and appeared updated. The service was good and quite friendly and able to communicate to us in English. The air conditioning could have been stronger in our room, but it was not uncomfortable. We would definately stay here again.

    Location, location, location (and charming, too.)


    Hotel Do Pozzi is a charming place to stay and the location is excellent! We got off the vaporetto and it was close by on a upscale street by Campo Maria d. Giglio. Tod's, Bally, Gucci, Prada. Very central and safe. Close to San Marco.

    Even though Calle Marzo is busy (and fashionable), Hotel Do Pozzi is down a little pathway off the street that leads to an open courtyard with tables where you can enjoy your breakfast. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Another posting said it was hard to find. Just keep your eyes open for a sign pointing out the hotel. We didn't miss it at all, but it is not directly on the street. The rooms were pleasant and clean. I definitely recommend it.

    Lovely stay


    We just returned from Venice and stayed at the Hotel Do Pozzi based on the reviews from the site. My husband and I were completely pleased with everything the hotel had to offer. When we first arrived, the desk clerk said he was going to put us in the annex, which made my heart sink. The annex was a pleasant surprise! It is separated from the main hotel but has lovely big rooms with huge baths, including a jacuzzi tub. The location was perfect for being a first-time tourist to Venice. We were shocked at how easily we were able to navigate the city. We ate the included breakfast at the hotel each morning before we set out to explore the city and fell in love with Venice!

    Excellent Choice


    I had a single room on the courtyard side. Everything worked well (including a/cand laptop connection to the net) and you just had to remember, as anywhere in Venice, to close the window at night (or buy some mozzie spray!). It was my first full week in Venice, and I found this an ideal base and location for exploring, setting out each day after a pleasant breakfast in their private courtyard.

    Aircon problems


    Well located hotel but many rooms undergoing refurbishment which may mean, as we found, you get a room where the air conditioning is not connected and possibly (again as we found) with drying plaster walls which stink. Lack of aircon makes for unpleasant overnight experience in hot weather - room temperatures get very high - opening windows to reduce temperature makes little difference and if it's because you have to clear the air it will let in a lot of city noise. This is not a hotel for light sleepers to gamble on. The hotel management are not sympathetic to these problems and despite advertising and confirming advance bookings as having air conditioning only give (grudgingly) nominal discounts.

    Always Returning to the Do Pozzi


    This hotel must be one of the best kept secrets in Venice. There is a

    discreet sign pointing to what appears to be a small courtyard but

    little else to give the fact away that here is a beautiful small hotel.

    We travel to Venice about four times a year and we have never stayed

    anywhere else other than the Do Pozzi. The staff are friendly and very

    efficient, they always remember us and slow down their speed when they

    speak to us in Italian. The breakfast room is small and intimate and

    there is an excellent selection of breads, preserves, cereals etc. The

    rooms are quiet and exude calm. However it is the location that we can

    never believe. Piazza San Marco is but five minutes away and my wife

    and I often take a very early morning or late night walk to the square

    when it is very peacful (except for the nagging worry that one might be

    accosted by a knife wielding dwarf in a red plastic raincoat). La

    Fenice is only a few yards away and we hope to go to a performance

    there when it reopens. To get to La Fenice one walks past a small

    eating/drinking place called Vino Vino that does excellent food.

    Walking from the Do Pozzi in the opposite way to San Marco one soon

    reaches the Academia. One the way is Bar Maurizio an excellent place

    for a sandwich and glass of wine.

    We are sure that other hotels may be grander and bear prestigious names; they may have views over the Grand Canal or boast their own private water taxes but a hotel as excellent as the Do Pozzi, in its location and at the price charged make us believe that we will never stay anywhere else. We stayed there in October and are returning for a long birthday weekend in January. We cannot wait

    Our favourite hotel


    We visit Venice twice every year, and always stay at the do Pozzi: in fact, we book our next stay before we leave! The staff are friendly and very helpful, the hotel has a cosy, warm atmosphere and the rooms are well-equipped. The do Pozzi is in easy walking distance of St Mark's Square, the Rialto and the Accademia gallery. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!

    Great location


    We have stayed at the Do Pozzi and recommended it to friends. We have never been disapointed. The perfect location that can't be beat at any price. Not many view rooms but everything is clean and neat. Good service and a charming breakfast courtyard. Be ready for a three block walk from the vaporati stop and a turn down a hard to find alley , worth the search.

    Fantastic hotel in the perfect location


    Only a couple of minutes walk to St Marks Square, this hotel was in the centre of all the action. The entrance of the hotel is down a small alley off a busy thoroughfare so it is a little hard to find unless you know what to look for.

    The alleyway opens up into a gorgeous courtyard where breakfast was served. This courtyard is the highlight of this hotel. We were in Venice in the middle of summer and the courtyard made for a cool and relaxing place to sit and regain some energy after spending the morning or afternoon sightseeing. Despite the busy street the hotel and courtyard are very quite.

    The rooms are large and clean and the staff are very efficient. There was even a gelati bar just around the corner.

    We stayed in Venice for five nights and found this hotel to be the perfect place to stay in a very unique city.

    Up at 3:40am for 4:00 taxi. Taxi to train station, plane to Venice. Brandi and I both felt like it was a 5 minute flight as we slept the entire hour of the flight. We had over 3 hour wait in the airport for other tour members to arrive. The drive to the water taxi was the scariest drive I have ever been on, even outdid Mexico. I have never ever …

    ... through a large number of historic squares before eventually reaching the gondolas for our ride around the canals. Gondolas are extremely long and thin to help them navigate the canals. They are beautifully ornate and list so easily you think the whole thing will tip you out. The highlight of the gondolas was definitely being out on the grand canal with Jess. Other fun stuff was seeing all the entrances to houses on the canals at water level. Jess wondered how they ...

    What a great place..... and by far - our busiest and most interesting day yet.......history and vistas around every corner. And it is so clean and the people so happy and helpful. Our hotel and room is fantastic..... right on the Grand Canal and just across from the station. There is (at least) 1400 odd years of culture around every corner.......everything about the buildings and architecture is beautiful and ...

    ... shops filled with these masks. We tried a few on, but decided that some of them are actually quite scary! We also went to a glass shop and bought souvenirs - a little miniature fish and a gondola with hearts in it.

    In the evening we went for a walk around the city, especially to the Realto Bridge which was gorgeous in the dark. We found a lovely restaurant and ate a nice meal before heading back for an early night. The next morning we headed to St Mark's ...

    We pull into the station at Santa Lucia in Venice. The water looks lovely and there are crowds of people everywhere. We decide to head down to the water taxi stand. I think the water taxi is called a Vapretto. We ask the price of a ride to the hotel and are shocked at the response . It is 60 !! That's like 90 ...
