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!

... because of its quiet, laid back vibe and lack of other tourists. The main, and really only, tourist attraction is the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, which was founded in 639 and is especially known for its 11th and 12th century mosaics. No photos were allowed inside, so you'll have to take my word for it.
Perhaps the most exciting news for me on the whole tour was that Ernest Hemingway slept here! He spent ...
The fast train to Venice at 225 kph made some stops along the way but got us there in about 3.5 hrs. We took the wrong boat around so missed the Grand Canal and then didn't get off at our stop so had to finish that route,get off and get on again for the ride back. The La Calcina hotel/B&B is right on the water ande we have a spectacular view from the windows of our top floor corner room. ...
... there. For lunch we went to this really cute place on the street. Then we find out there's a service tax to sit at a restaurant. The places to eat charge you €2 per person to sit at a table! This city just robs you of money for stupid things! After lunch we decided to go to some of the islands off the main island of Venice. We made our way to the ferry and had to wait for a little while for the next one to come. I wanted to see how warm ...
... You can easily buy day pass so you can hop on and off on different stations. It can take you whole day to get a whole view of the different stops without going into the museums.

... but you are on an island so there is only so far to go. Tomorrow they are predicting rain so that should be interesting since this is a completely outdoor city. For those of you who go to Epcot and recognize Doge's palace and clock tower in our photos, Disney's version is much cleaner.... Looking forward to to or row and hoping to stay dry... Steve and ...
