“Just absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed 7 June 2009

We can't recommend this hotel highly enough! We arrived by private water taxi and from the moment we walked into the hotel we were impressed. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the most beautiful suite with fantastic ornate painted ceilings and furniture, and lovely views over the square. The hotel staff are all corteous and polite and extremely helpful. The breakfast was beautifully presented and there was plenty of choice. The hotel is situated just far enough away from the main tourist areas to be quiet and relaxed, but it was only a short walk to St Mark's Square. This was without doubt, the most beautiful hotel we have ever stayed in, and we would gladly stay there again.

We can recommend this hotel to everybody. We have stayed here with 20 people and everyone was really excited about the experience of staying in the Ruzzini Palace. The staff was very friendly and really do understand there job. Nothing was too much to ask, this is how it should be when you stay in a hotel.

We came in and it was pouring rain. My husband navigated us through the canals and side alleys to Ruzzini Palace. We were THRILLED!! We had our own personal conceirge who attended to our every need!! We arrived before official check in and they allowed us to check in early. Our room was elegant and spacious. We had a huge bathtub and a balcony! We had a walk in closet and another balcony where we enjoyed wine and cheese while watching the gondolas pass below. When we come back we will definately be staying here again!!

They dropped my laptop into the canal, and never offered me a single euro. Stay somewhere else.

GMRuzzini, Direttore at Ruzzini Palace Hotel, responded to this review, 11 November 2011
Dear Sir,
The laptop was dropped in the canal when boarding with the water taxi to our water entrance.
The taxi driver never fixed the taxi-boat to our pier, leaving a big gap inbetween them. The laptop that was placed above one of the suitcases, when unloading the luggages, accidentaly fell into the canal. We immediatly clarified that the responsability was to blame to the taxi driver since he did not fixed the taxi to the pier. The taxidriver agreed and gave us the number to he's insurance.
As any where else in world when something broken and you want an insurance to cover the costs, you must leave them the damaged object . this was never done and you brought with you what you claim was broken and useless. How can you ever pretend to have some refound on something nobody can never prove was broken? But maybe bringing the laptop home you had the chance to get a refound from your insurance company?

We stayed at the Ruzzini for three nights. We were upgraded to a junior suite: a beautiful and comfortable room with a great view on the nice square in front of the hotel.
Location is very good. Quiet and San Marco Place an Rialto Bridge are in a short walking distance.
Staff is friendly and helpfull. Breakfast is not abundant but quite sufficient.
We enjoyed our stay in this hotel very much.

What a great hotel, friendly staff and first class service. Perfectly placed for a Venice holiday and if you get them to arrange your water taxi they'll take you right up to the back door, so no walking across the city.

When I first read the reviews and saw the photos of the Ruzzini Palace, compared them to other hotels in the locations I thought that would be nice for us and saw a good deal at Expedia, I have booked it with good expectations. And my relations with the hotel soon have begun, in a helpful and kind way, when the hotel concierge, Michele, tracked me @ tripadvisor when I was making questions about watertaxis in the Venice forum.
The hotel is really a gem! A lovely palazzo, wonderfully located at Campo de Santa Maria Formosa, close to San Marco and Rialto(5min walk from both), but far enough from the crowds. The hotel is well decorated and new, the breakfast is really very good. Our rooms were huge and really comfortable. My parents were greated with a bottle of prosecco for their 47th anniversary. Their room faced the canal and had balconies and our`s faced the lovely campo. I can only make one remark about my bathroom: although I could expect the lack of shower in houses ond older hotels around europe, I didn`t expect that in a great modern bathroom. My parents had a shower, though. But that really did not bother me much. We all loved Venice more than I expected, and I think The Ruzzini has contributed a lot to that feeling.
