Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Vecellio Venice
The Real Venice
A clean and comfortable hotel in a great situation on the waterfront to the north of Venice (see photo). However, it is within a short walking distance from Saint Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge. Proprietor Matteo was very friendly and recommended a number of typically Venetian restaurants which had great food and local atmosphere at local (not tourist!) prices.
Veidi vici Vecellio
Good little hotel, a short walk from the Rialto (once you master the walk). Hotel was too warm for me but great for you coldies. Great if you have problem with getting around as water bus stop is right outside. Staff friendly including Matteo who is witty. After a day in crowds nice to go back somewhere a bit quieter. I would stay there again.
Not to be missed
This small hotel is a wonderful base to see Venice. It is conveninet for arrival from the airport, as the waterbus stop is just outside. It is warm and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable AND attractive. The breakfast is better than most hotel breakfasts. The croissants and rolls were fresh and the coffee was decent too. San Marco and Rialto within 10- 15 minutes walk, and waterbus stops for islands, Lido and the circular lines outside. Best place we've stopped in a dozen visits to Venice.
Beautifully finished hotel with a romantic, calming atmosphere. Close to restaurant, sandwich shop, pastry shop, grocery store, water bus stop to Murano & Burano. 15-20 minute walk to main sights of Venice. Unfortunately, we could hear conversations in hallway and from other room. More soundproofing would make this an ideal stay, and would make the romantic decor more useful. Even so, we found this hotel to be our favourite on our trip. Our room also had a very good water view and we were not disturbed by outside noises. The heated floors are fantastic in winter time! Free safe in room.
Lovely hotel, great location
Just got back and agree with previous comments completely. Wonderful clean room and 15 mins walk to most 'sights'. So easy to find....... we saw so many 'lost' people searching back streets for their hotel with luggage late at night, ours was literally the vaporetta stop.
Worth eating in this area before an evening stroll to the main area as much better value.
Breakfast was simple but enough, and the ice cream shop next door is sooooooooooo tempting!!
Can't wait to go back to the Hotel Vecellio
I just got back from my vacation in Italy and staying at the the Hotel Vecellio was one of the highlights. It is a very pretty hotel. The rooms were decorated beautifully and very comfortable. The hotel is in a good location and very easy to get to. I am looking forward to my next trip to Venice and staying at Hotel Vecellio again.
Wonderful place to go to, very friendly staff, excellent view, all clean and cosy and quiet. Ideal for honeymooners. The waterbus stop is right in front of the hotel - very easy access to all destinations and airport, the view from our room was to the island of Murano and the Lagoon. Highly recommended place. All history sights and shopping within walking distance, including restaurants and ATM. Ancient Venetian house newly renovated in venetian style. Will definitely go back!

Decided to walk back over to the Zattere area and check things out. There was a place to hear live music located there. We managed to find our way back to the waterfront. Getting pretty good at recognizing some of the landmarks going back and forth! The place was no longer in business but we walked around for awhile and then walked past the place where they are still ...

... smells like Chinese Food. An improvement I suppose. Evening in Venice. Oh my goodness. It is beautiful. Loved walking through the old streets and over the little bridges. Canals are fantastic. Our dinner was so fancy at a Michelin Guide restaurant. Never had such tender meat. And I actually liked the tiramisu :) But it was very hot and muggy. Still 28 degrees when we left at 10pm. Tomorrow is meant to be ...

Since dinner, we've just been hanging out in the room watching European satellite TV. We get communist news channels and Italian Sponge Bob - so we're pretty good. Tomorrow we'll be taking the train to Rome around noon.

... into Venice to find something to eat and having a few beers. found a nice little bar which everyone sits on the steps and has a drink which was pretty cool. (they serve a Venice drink mixed off red wine soda apple vodka and an olive) SOOOO NICE and cheap so we had a few of those and made our way back slowly to the campsite we were both pretty merry ha.
Next day didn't really do too much ...
