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.

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!!

... truly beautiful experience. We went over the two hours , the sky is a mixture of dark and purple as the storm disappears somewhere, and pink and orange as the sun is setting.
We walk back home without our yellow smudges map for a guide as Steve is pretty good now.
Hahaha we get lost again, but this time the lost-ness becomes a short cut and we find we have popped out from a lane to our piazza closer to home. Bloody hell.
... to do it for 80 euro which is around what we expected. We clamber aboard with the gondolier and his brother who is an apprentice gondolier, so he only gets a red stripey shirt. You gotta earn your black stripes. The ride down the canals is beautiful and peaceful as the sun sets over Venice, nothing like the gondola demo derbies that we had witnessed earlier in the day. We thoroughly enjoy our boat ride and its over ...
... thing. We even walked around the outside roof of the Basilica where we got some amazing photos of San Marco Square. We then decided to walk around some of the neighborhoods where the locals live. It was great because there were not a lot of tourists. Before dinner we took a Vaporetto to the Academia and got some great shots of the bridge and buildings from the water. Well tomorrow we have an all day train ride to Cinque Terre..... Tammy and ...
... and has seats for 435 representatives and a lot more staff but comes no where close to 1500 for roomy seating arrangements. Not to mention the US house does not have one of the greatest works of art ever hanging up above the entry way or rather covering the entire east wall of the chamber.
San Marco is also a very impressive piece of both art and architecture and again for my money's worth, the 5 euros it takes to get in ...
