Liassidi Palace Hotel
Travel Blogs from Venice
The day started well. We both had slept well and felt refreshed after our 24hrs of flying and 6hrs time zone difference. We enjoyed a delightful breakfast in our hotel, overlooking the canal. Great food and coffee. We then packed our back pack after deciding to walk to the Piazza San Marco and hopefully see the Basilica. Di San Marco and the …
Sorry we're a bit behind in these! We left Venice a little while ago after having a blast canal wondering and spaghetti eating. The weather was a little drizzly so we actually got to see a high tide and flooded streets.
The alarm went off at 5:15 am (Saturday) and I didn't dare hit the snooze button. The center of Rovinj was asleep except for the street sweeper and the pastry shop. We walked about ten minutes to the ferry landing and were relieved to see the boat docked and people already lined up to embark. It was the only ferry to Venice until Wednesday and we had to be on it. The ferry left exactly at 7:00 am and arrived about an hour later into Opatika. I assumed we ...
... from the washing powder we washed our clothes with. So our final day in Venice was more of survival rather than enjoyment, sad I know. Some of you may be thinking why we stayed so long? Well we had a flight booked to Santorini and couldn't change our plans. If I was to do it again i could knock it out in one day. Maybe two. Despite the trials and tribulations we escaped the mozzies and went into Venice one last time. Kate did a bit of shopping and ...
... of any city. Instead of the typical vehicular racket, all you can hear are birds, the muffled sounds of marine engines, and the actual voices of people. Visually, as one descends the steps of the relatively modern station (built in 1954), the Grand Canal opens in front of you, as does a series of colorful, crowded docks and ticket booths. We're at one of the docks of Venice's public transit system, i.e., the passenger stops for a fleet ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Liassidi Palace Hotel Venice
This is a fantastic hotel to stay in. We were 3 moms travelling with our young children and Claudio and Guilio at the front desk did everything to accomodate us, including giving us large comfortable rooms, arranging a good baby sitter, etc. The staff are extremely polite and friendly. The rooms were beautifully furnished with very high ceilings, excellent air conditioning and absolutely modern and imacculate bathrooms with jacuzzis and power showers. The common areas were extensive and very comfortable. And although they do not have a restaurant, they serve a terrific breakfast of eggs, croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, cold meats and cheese. Compared to other places in Europe this was a great start to the day. They can also serve tea/drinks in the beautiful patio outside which has very comfortable seating covered with umbrellas. The location is perfect as it is in a quiet part of the city yet very convenient to all major attractions and just a 5 minute walk to St. Mark's square. All in all, we found ourselves relieved every time we got back to the hotel from an exhausting day walking around with the kids. As my 7 year old daughter said, "the hotel was the best part of our visit to Venice." I highly recommend this hotel as it is everything a hotel should be: great value for money, beautifully furnished, excellent service, convenient location - what more could you ask for?
Loved this hotel
We have just returned from a stay in Venice. We were not booked for this hotel but our hotel overbooked us and placed us here. The hotel was really wonderful, fairly modern but trying to achieve an antique feel, which we believe they managed to pull off
Our room was very large with good airconditioning and lighting and exceptionally clean and the
bathroom was at least 8 foot square, tiled with a spa bath. The hotel also included lots of little bath spa products. The breakfast was a standard continental breakfast, cheese, ham eggs crosiannts etc. Outside the hotel also has a very nice drinks garden with large umbrella canopies.
We would highly recommend this hotel.
The other reviews of this hotel impressed me enough to book a 3 night stay here in early August 2004.
We stayed at Liassidi Palace Hotel based on the reviews from this website and we were 100% thrilled that we did! A water taxi from Marco Pollo Airport took us right up to the hotel's canal entrance! What a romantic way to start our holiday. The front-desk staff was extremely polite and greeted us immediately upon our arrival. They were very helpful to us since they spoke english. This is a new hotel and part of the 'small luxury hotels of the world'. The decor was part old-world, part contemporary. The best part for me, coming from a woman, was that the bathroom was 'contemporary' with a spa-like setting. Everything was extremely clean and sparkling and the water pressure fantastic! The jacuzzi tub was an excellent way to end the day and it does fit 2 people (feet to feet)! Breakfast was a buffet feast of anything you could posibly want to start your day, and a few tables sat with a view of the canal! The hotel's courtyard was a beautiful place to sit and read tour books or just to enjoy a cappuccino. The coutyard was crisp, clean and modern in style. The location of the hotel was superb, only a short 4-5min walk to St Marks Square. Across the foot bridge, over the canal, is a great little restaurant which was very convenient for lunch or dinner. We would definitely stay at this hotel again, and would highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Venice! Oh yes, and we found it a fantastic value!! For the quality, decor, and service you'd pay a lot more at other hotels! Hope this helped!
This place was great
This place is probably the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The service was wonderful, and the room was amazing.
What else to add! we stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of December 2003. Smallish room, but very stylish and excellent attention from all the staff. The hotel is a little difficult to find at first but once there you'll be glad you did!
Great location and staff
This was our first visit to Venice, and it was a great one! The hotel was within very easy walking distance of St Marks Square, perfect location. The staff were great from the time we entered the hotel until the time we left, and every time we went out and came back in, I challenge you to find an unhelpful member of staff in this hotel.
The room was a nice size with a very comfortable king size bed with exceptional sheets and duvet. The cleanliness and the upkeep of the room were exceptional too. The bathroom is spacious with a nice Jacuzzi bath and shower and is stocked with lovely toiletries. I recommend trying the Jacuzzi bath with their bath foam; it takes an hour for the bubbles to disappear!
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
Nicest surprise in venice
I loved this hotel!! went on valentines day 2004 and wasnt too overimpressed with venice's weather or transport and to top it off got a little lost with all the twisting ally ways which is a bit claustraphobic! but then we got to our hotel!! it was like a light at the end of the road!! it was in its own world literally!! nithing like the surrounding. it was fairly spacious and the furnishing was beautifully italian all the way. The layout of the hotel impressed me alot as it wasnt your typical corridor type. it was like being in someones palace!!! the room was clean and simple with touch of class.
the service was great too... people were really helpful and never snobby!!! wish there was a liassidi around the world cos i wud definitlely be a loyal customer!!
Art by the yard buta great bath
The best bath I ever had-everything worked-jacuzzi whipped their bath foam to a froth when I needed it most- It had rained all day. Art seems to have been purchased by the yard -modern Italian furniture design was combined with gilt-service at breakfast was neither warm nor friendly but the food was good and adequate. Location excellent--large gathering room would serve groups very well. (written by a former state tourism PR person) If I were going for comfort rather than charm, I'd opt for this. Little golden hands hold the hand rail--nice touch!
Great Rooms, Super Location, Fantastic Staff - this place has got it all!!
Cracking place to stay in a cracker of a city. I can't recommend this place highly enough!!
