      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.

      ... water taxi picks up the 7 of us who are left, at 5:00am for the airport. Then we fly to Frankfurt and then to San Francisco. About 15 hours of flying total - not including the layover. With the time difference, tomorrow is going to be the longest birthday ever - 32 hours! Probably not the funnest though, but can't complain after this wonderful trip :)

      We woke up after that ordeal expecting to see the Venice canals outside and even inside our tent but alas It was all clear and the fear of us being stranded hear and our plane not leaving due to the storm was quickly quashed.

      All in all, we obviously must say that this one stop had been an adventurous one and something we will both never forget. Im sure neither will most of you.

      7th of September 2014 guys don’t forget it.

      Venezia in the Rain

      ... improves card security. Because ours had none and because we were low on cash, there began the search for an ATM, braving the rain, lightning and thunder. While out Karen wisely purchased two umbrellas!
      It rained and thundered for most of the day. We'd hoped it would scare away the hordes of tourists from Venice, but no such luck. They, like us, had come to see the famed city and were undaunted by a bit of rain ...

      The funny thing is, we came up in the lift, so when we go out we think we are walking down six flights of stairs, (Steve took the lift before) The stairs only go down three levels, gosh we are confused. As long as we find the front door, and can find our hotel room, lets not think about the levels in the hotel !

      ... south of the city, because there one sees the all day life "Venetian" style: all kind of boats! The tourist hop on hop off boats, the vaporetto's, the ferries to the Lido and to Murano (and other islands), but also, the carabinieri boat, the waste collecting boat, the DHL boat which looks a little worn out, the ambulance boat, very noisy, the "truck" boat just to transport things, like drinks ...
