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!

I did NOT wake up ready to go. In fact, I woke up congested and dizzy, but my fever was gone! Frank went and got us breakfast and came back with my favorite flowers, Gerber Daisies, to help make me feel better. And the best husband award goes too....FRANK MOWERY!!

... m a particular fan of the apricot jam-filled warm croissants served to each table. We discuss today’s plan. When planning Venice, friends who had visited previously mainly told us to "get lost". After initially taking offence, we realised that they were telling us to quite literally get lost – get off the beaten path, follow little alleyways that may or may not end up in the canal version of a dead end, mix the tourist hotspots ...
... like I should have done the opposite. Additionally, there is a general expectation at a restaurant like Quadri that the guests will each have their own meal. Well, D and I share everything. That's how we feel it's best to enjoy a restaurant's food. But when we told the server at Quadri that we would be sharing the food, I actually felt that they took that to mean we were cheap and didn't want to spend a lot of money. We spent plenty of money, let me tell you, but that didn't ...
... to watch this being created in front of us, how very impressive. The demonstration didn't take very long, thankfully because it was extremely hot near the fire. We were then guided into the showroom and amazed further by the variety of Murano glass statues, jewellery and sets of glasses and goblets. We couldn't take photos but that was definitely not something you would forget. From here I bought a few pieces of jewellery, one being a bracelet for myself. It was hard to ...
... for free time, we visited the Rolex and Omega boutiques. I got a strap for the ladies Playboy Omega, about $235. Then shopping all over the place and the Ponte Rialto. B got me an entire outfit including shoes so I'd look good for our Gondola ...
