    Historical Traveler Reviews Relais Venezia Venice

    Superb hotel and location!

    from

    My husband and I just returned from a two week stay in Italy and Venice was our last stop. We can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel. It's brand new - opened in October and it's fabulous. The staff is so helpful and the hotel is beautiful. Also - you can't get a better location - it's superb - just between San March square and the Rialto bridge. You will not need to ride the water bus (taxi) to get to either - it's within a great walking distance of everywhere. The photos are exactly what you will get - it's all beautiful. This hotel was simply wonderful!!

    Excellent Relais Venezia

    from

    Really charming boutique hotel in excellent central location, midway between St Mark's Square & Rialto Bridge. Staff friendly and helpful. Room simply but tastefully furnished - bathroom immaculate, and everywhere spotless. Breakfast was simple but entirely adequate. Would certainly stay there again without hesitation.

    As an aside, suggest you take a hairdryer, as those provided are not powerful and awkward to use. Also I got bitten by mosquitoes, so suggest you take a plug in zapper with you. Note that they don't accept credit cards for less than 3 nights' stay.

    This was a fun place to stay.

    from

    Instructions on how to get there were provided clearly and helpfully. All the staff we met were charming and informative.

    The attention to detail in the room was excellent, although it would be better if the bedside tables actually opened and provided more storage. Using the implement to put clothes in the high wardrobe was challenging but fun. It would take years to work out what all the knobs in the wet room were for and it was more of an elegantly stylish wet room than a bathroom. Paddling was compulsary. The digital safe was a reassuring asset. The wall T.V. was perfectly positioned for bedtime watching of football by any man so inclined !

    The secluded position not, far from a little supermarket, a good day time coffee and snack place for the locals and between San Zaccaria and The Rialto made walking access to practically everything you could want to see or do by day or by night pleasurable.

    This is a fun place to stay in Venice. We want to go back.

    Average

    from

    just stayed here for 3 nights, booked 2 rooms (201,202)

    positives:-

    - good location (if you want to be in the centre) between st mark's square and rialto bridge

    - friendly and helpful staff

    - clean, modern, quiet

    - decent size rooms

    negatives:-

    - room 202 very dark, overlooks a small smelly courtyard!!

    - no bath, and shower floods whole bathroom floor

    breakfast was ok, served in room or in small lobby area

    Overall, I thought the hotel was ok but characterless. The problem with the view and bathroom in room 202 mean I would not stay here again.

    Great location but a bit overpriced

    from

    We stayed in Relais Venezis last March. Location is really excellent. The rooms are reasonably sized and spotless. Bathroom floors can get flooded by the shower.

    Breakfast is fine and but nothing to write home about, the lift rarely works.

    We requested twin beds but arrived to find a double that they could not seperate that first night. We had an e-mail to state this but the hotel kept saying it was our fault - even though I had the e-mail in my hand. This is probably above average for venice but as a person who travels very regularly I felt a bit let down

    Nice Hotel and great location

    from

    My husband and I stayed at this small hotel for a week. The owner of the hotel made us feel as if we were visiting in his home and not staying in a hotel. Everybody in the hotel spoke English and was eager to help us out, whether we needed directions, reservations at restaurant, concerts or for private boat service to the airport. The room was small but lovely, modern and stylish. The whole property, including the rooms, is very clean and furnished with high-class. Moreover the location is great: the hotel is located behind San Marco Square and it is only a 5 minutes walk to Rialto. We loved our stay and when we go back to Venice next time we will once again book a room in this beautiful small hotel.

    Le meilleur rapport qualité prix : du luxe à prix raisonnable !!

    from

    Cet hôtel est absolument excellentissime, d'un raffinement et d'une classe et d'un confort et d'une hospitalité devenus très rares dans les hôtels de nos jours (en dehors des palaces). Superbement placé et super calme (aucun bruit) c'est l'endroit idéal pour rester quelques jours à Venise sans avoir à se soucier du confort une fois rentré à la chambre : tout est neuf, décoré avec goût, bien chauffé, et absolument nickel. Le proprio est extrêmement chaleureux et avenant, un jeune qui a visiblement transformé la maison familiale en petit hôtel de luxe à des prix qui ne sont pas de luxe, compte tenu de ce qui est offert. Ascenceur pour les personnes handicapées, chambre spacieuse (!!),petit déjeuner copieux, les chambres du haut ont la vue sur les toits de venise et le Campanile. Webbar à deux mètres, connection modème possible dans les chambres. Ca faisait longtemps qu'on n'avait plus eu une aussi bonne expérience (surtout avec deux petits enfants: à Paris on vous fait la gueule !). C'est pour nous l'adresse la plus sûre et le meilleur rapport qualité prix à venise.

    Very special and nice hotel

    from

    We want to give en excellent review on this hotel in the heart of Venezia

    everything from the quality of the room until the welcoming help and the advise of the so nice osteria that you booked for us was very impressive.

    The advise of the osteria were completely what we are searching in Venezia and we would never forget your hotel, our stay and everything linked with venice

    You could go in this hotel just making us confidence One advice, book especially the magnificient junior suite 301

    Room 101!

    from

    My fiance and I had a short break to Venice and stayed at this hotel. We were impressed with the friendliness, knowledge and helpfulness of the staff.We stayed in room 101, which perhaps was not the best located room as it was right next to the sliding entrance door to the hotel and under the stairs to the lobby/breakfast room, but it was clean and comfortable enough for a short stay.For such a small room we were amazed at what they had fitted in with aircon,flat screen t.v.and a modern style shower room (complete with hidden fold out bidet!).The location of the hotel was great and the recommended restaurant from the desk manager was excellent. Breakfast was nothing special though the croissants they served were fresh and tasty.We would stay there again but perhaps specify that we did not have room 101!

    A little gem

    from

    We (2 adults & 2 children) stayed here for 5 nights and were very happy with the location, the rooms and the friendly service. For first time visitors, as we were, the location is fantastic - just by (5 mins) San Marco, but also quick to get to Rialto, and the Campo St Maria Formosa. The owners of the 3rd rated hotel on tripadvisor (Locanda D'Agostin) have just opened this little (10 room) inn and the standard of finish and equipment is very high: movement activated lighting, airconditioning etc. We had the top 2 rooms with views out over the rooftops in our case to San Marco Campanile, while the children looked out towards Rialto (see photo). Beds were firm/hard but we slept well. Very well informed and friendly service on hand round the clock, with excellent advice on authentic restaurants.

    Venice is Amazing

    A travel blog entry by jayton on Sep 28, 2014

    ... Venice seems to be a little more expensive than the Cortona area but still reasonable.

    Off to Murano tomorrow where the famous Venetian glass is made and then to Burano which is famous for it's lace work. After that another hop on hop off bus ride on the water.

    One strange thing to see here is a police boat screaming down the Canal with sirens blaring, lights flashing and all the other boats diving out of the way.

We continue on to the shore of the Grand Canal to scope out the gondola operators, and then wind our way through the alleys to the bridge Accedemia on our way to Punta della Dogana al Salute, a triangular point where the Grand Canal and Guidecca Canal meet, ...

    5-3: After checking out of Vita Pugna at 9:30am, we were transported by taxi to our hotel in Mantova. After settling in our hotel, we headed to the train station and headed for a day trip in Verona. Verona was nice but touristy, almost gave it a Las Vegas feel. Went to see Casa de Julietta and the famous balcony. In the story, ...

    ... double grrr!!), but it was a sight we will remember for a long time. Jane got a couple of shots and her battery died too. Guess we've been doing too much snapping :-)

    At some stage during the night, Jane misplaced the keys to her suitcase lock (we lock it up with the laptop inside it), so we had to wait for the concierge to send someone to break it open. It was well after 11 when we got to bed. All part of the adventure!

    Ciao for now!

    When we were done admiring the Palace, we started the slow walk back to the ship by following the yellow signs with the word Roma. The original plan was to take the kids back to the ship and the four adults spend an evening in Venice, but neither time nor crowds were on our side to make that happen. Not too far out of the heavy crowds, we found a wonderful restaurant to have our first ...
