We has booked into another hotel, San Cassiano Residenza D'Epoca. When we arrived at reception, we were told that we would actually be staying at another hotel around the corner, which turned out to be the Palazzo Giovanelli. We were given no explanation at all, but were taken round with our luggage and they didn't seem surprised to see us...most odd! After a mild panic, we found that the Giovanelli was a beautiful hotel. It has clearly been a very grand home before it was very sympathetically turned into this fantastic place to stay. The layout was slightly unusual, and our bathroom was tucked away, but this added to the charm of the hotel. The staff were friendly and our room was fairly quiet other than some neighbours coming in noisly one night, as you would expect in any hotel.
Absolutely perfect location, so central for walking around the lovely rialto area with some great restaurants nearby. Very close to San Stae waterbus stop, which made it so easy to get around, and also to get back to the airport.
The room was a good size, amazing architecture and very comfortable. We booked a gondola trip from reception. Although we had to wait a while, we were offered complimentary prosecco to make up for it, and it was peak time so no problem.
Really recommend this hotel for it's perfect location and comfort. It was a tucked away so peaceful and relaxing, whilst close enough to bars and restaurants to wander back happy and full after plenty of amazing venetian food!
