... the pigeons poop on people’s heads, order a pizza, or stick with the plan and hit the Basilica. We stuck with the plan, and I am glad that we did. The mosaics were breathtaking and took me back to Sunday School. The Basilica is said to have been built on the bones of Mark, who wrote one of the books of the New Testament. Inside, the entire story of Christians is depicted through mosaics, with highlights of ...
... 6.30am I bade him farewell and set off on my run. It is possible to run in Venice on very flat ground, but it does involve numerous foot bridges up and over each section of canal, so a bit of interval running was required. Towards the end of the grand canal there is a park which gives you sweeping views of Venice and the island of San Giorgio, so this particular run has been one of the most enjoyable....if that's possible! Met up with Hughy again, who was finishing off his mornings ...
... We realized later that since there was a public transportation strike today, they had to find a way to get tourists to Murano. Lesson learned - if it's too good to be true, then it probably is. Loop #2 After getting lunch for take-out, we went to our apartment to eat and hangout. We got gelato #2 and were heading back to St. Mark's Square when I realized that I didn't have one of our ATM cards. Eeeeeekkkk! Needless to say I was pretty ...
... We enjoyed the sights on a short walk around as well as some time on our own to wander in the maze of little lanes and small shops. A drink at one of the cafes carefully watched over by our snow covered mountains. Seemed really strange feeling reasonably comfortable and warm in the view of so much snow. Out lovely Hilton hotel room had wonderful views of the mountain. The evening was filled with Tyrolean entertainment. Dinner (soup, salad, snitzel and ...
... Goodness, I can't believe I'm in Venice, Italy moment!!! The city looked so beautiful, the sun was shining, feeling good. From the first over bridge into the city, it was just so picturesque, there was going to be a lot of photo taking opportunities. Into the city I went and I was just so excited, coming across cute boutique shops with bags and clothes and nic nacks. Gorgeous masks, that probably weren't even authentic but so pretty anyway. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Residenza Goldoni Venice
A fine place to spend a couple of days in Venice
My wife and I spent 3 nights at this very nice hotel, from July 20th until July 23rd. The room was nice and clean, it had a delightful terrace on which we had our sober breakfast each morning. We enjoyed a good-quality bed. The bathroom is furnished with style and was kept very clean. Staff, from management to cleaning personnel, was very friendly and helpsome, though in no way obtrusive, which we appreciate.
We stayed at the Residenza Goldoni from the 6th till the 9th July 2004 and was very pleased with the location of the hotel and the hospitality that was shown. The staff were very helpful with anything and it made it that bit more special by having breakfast delivered to your room on a morning. You only had to walk for about 5 mins if that to get to the Rialto Bridge and you were within easy distance of St Mark's Square. I would definately recommend this hotel and hopefully will be going back there soon.
Just one word: Excellent!
The lovely locanda is just located in the city-centre. Excellent the cleaning of the rooms/WC. and the hospitalit of the owners. I wish to be back in this piece of paradise soon.
A great place to stay
this inn is in a great location, with friendly staff who are helpful and polite. A very good room rate also. The staff accomadate your needs brilliantly. The rooms are a good size and the bathrooms are great for the money. We had a terrace which was lovely. the inn is very tastefully decorated and looks and feels like a home from home. The staff are charming and i would love to have stayed longer and talked to the staff more as they are great and full of information. i would recommend this accomadation to anybody. There are stairs to climb to get to the rooms however, but this is a minor point. all in all i would stay there again.
Just a word: great!!
I've recently returned from trip to Venice.
I stayed at this friendly hotel.
The location is great (close to Rialto bridge and few steps from San
Mark square), the rooms spacious, comfortable (with one or two large
windows) with clean bathroom. Breakfast is served in the room during
The staff, Andrea and Ferruccio were very friendly and helpful.
I hope to return soon.
As someone who lived in Venice for eleven years, I think of myself as fairly learned on matters Venetian. Although I moved back to the States several years ago, I make a point of returning to Venice at least once a year. And my stays there always involve the Residenza Goldoni. In addition to its ideal location (just behind the Rialto bridge and the city's key vaporetto [water bus] stop) and reasonable rates, the Goldoni boasts excellent management, extraordinarily clean rooms and pleasant, energetic service. Andrea and Ferruccio, the owners, are especially alert to the needs of their guests and offer help far beyond the norm. Because of the professionalism and genuine interest shown, I would eagerly recommend the Residenza Goldoni to anyone hoping to be afforded a delightful, hassle-free visit to Venice.
This was a great place in a great location - halfway between the Rialto bridge and St Mark's square. The people were VERY nice and helpful. We stayed in a double room that was quite large, with 2 large windows and a private bath. A couple of drawbacks though: There is no elevator. We climbed up a lot of steps to get to our room. Also, there was an ant problem in the bathroom. Also a weird smell was coming out of tht toilet the last night, like there was something wrong with the septic tank or something. Also note, they only take cash as payment, no credit cards, which was an inconvenience.
We would stay there again
My husband and I recently stayed at the Goldoni and we would definitely stay there again. We have already recommended the hotel to our friends. The room with the terrace on the top floor was lovely and the other room beside it without a terrace was almost as nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was always delivered on time, with a smile and as requested.
One caution - the single room which the hotel staff describe as "quite large" is actually quite small.
The hotel was okay
THe staff were very friendly & helpful, and the location of the hotel was very central. However the triple room we stayed in was exceptionally small, without any windows. For 200 euros a night it seemed a little too steep.
Loved the Residenza
Our stay was perfect at the Residenza Goldoni. The room was accurately pictured on thier website. The accomodations were excellent. Breakfast was delightful with gracious service from the entire staff. The rooms were very quiet especially considering the proximity to the famous rialto bridge. Room size was adequate considering most rooms are small in Europe. Everything in the room was updated and very clean. I would not hesitate to recommend this accomodation. I plan to stay there during my next trip to Venice. I wanted to write this review because it was a worthwhile find that I wanted to share with others. The prices were also very reasonable. 110 euros a night with a private terrace during the month of February.
