I needed a guaranteed good night's sleep after 3 nights in 3 different countries, so was lucky to find Aqua Palace on a late avail search- one room left.
On foot, the simplest way to find the place is via the Calle Specchieri San Marco tucked right at the back right hand side as your face the square from the bay behind the cathedral. Just head straight all the way up until you reach the junction and then turn right and it's the building across the small bridge.
If I'd have known that, might have saved me 40 mins! Saw that many guests used water taxi- hotel has landing bay.

Staff couldn't have been more helpful on arrival, and once I got into my room, I knew I'd made the right choice. Beautiful spacious room, great stylish bathroom, and super comfortable bed.
Needless to say, had a wonderful 8 hours sleep, ready for the chaos of Venice the next day.

Certainly not the cheapest place to stay in Venice, but as the adage goes, you get what you pay for!

Stayed 2 nights in May. Hotel is in a great location between Rialto bridge and St Mark's Square. As we had our 22 year old daughter with us we stayed in a suite witch was very nice. Huge bedroom and separate lounge area which was made into the second bedroom. Bathroom was beautiful, Italian white marble very large.
What makes this hotel so good are the staff. Very helpful, greeted us by name each time we passed reception. Hotel arranged water taxis for us from airport.
Venice is a beautiful city but very expensive. Gondolier ride was €80 for 30 minutes. Water taxi from airport to hotel was €150 Expect to pay London prices for meals and drinks.
Loved our visit and we made the correct choice with the Aqua Palace.

A very fine hotel in a quiet location. It is a few minutes walk to St Mark's - where you can cheerfully squeeze your way past lots of tourists taking pictures of each other - and a few minutes in the other direction to the Rialto bridge.
My guess is that if you're in the market for a hotel like this, you will be more interested in the areas away from St Mark's. Venice is such an improbable and amazing city and has so much more to do and see than St Marks. The hotel itself is on a quiet canal and some of the rooms look directly onto it. We had a view of the canal, which can be noisy first thing in the morning when the small barges come to collect the rubbish (everything in Venice happens by canal, even rubbish collection, ambulances and police chases). We weren't bothered by the noise as it's part of the charm and they came around 8.30 but it's worth bearing in mind when you think about a room with a view.
The suite itself was very big and very tastefully decorated. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into the finer touches. The double bed was large and comfortable, the bathroom was bigger than most bedrooms and there was plenty of wardrobe space.
The breakfast room is small but there was always a table for us when we went down. The fruit juice is delicious and fresh and there's a good selection of cereal, bread, fruit, eggs and bacon. The lady who serves breakfast can be a bit slow, especially if she manages to drag someone else into a conversation, but this is all part of the charm.
If you do stay here - and I would certainly go back - then ignore the hotel's directions which are about as useful as saying 'wander around till you find it.' It is near the Hotel Canaletto, which is better signposted. Check directions on their website, then the Aqua Palace is 50m past that on the other side of the street.

My wife and I stayed at the Aqua Palace Hotel, and we loved it.

We stayed in Room 101 (a junior suite). The room was clean, quiet, spacious, and well-appointed. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone.

Breakfast was a simple but excellent buffet. My wife and I especially appreciated the efforts of the woman who made us cappuccinos every morning. She was very kind and personable.

We only rated two categories 4/5 stars, but these are really nit-picky observations, not complaints:
- Value: (4/5 stars) This is not a cheap hotel, but the quality was very good for the price
- Sleep quality: (4/5 stars) Air conditioning was relatively loud, we would have liked more pillows, and the mattress was two twin beds pushed together rather than a large, single mattress (this is common in Europe)

We were initially allocated a ground floor room looking onto the canal, but I prefer a quieter room so we asked to be moved. Although the hotel was very busy they kindly moved us to a top floor room. It did not have a canal view but that really wasnt important to us. It was light, spacious and very comfortable with an enormous bed and lots of storage. Skylight windows added to the light airy feel and airconditioning worked very well.
Breakfast was excellent and the very friendly ladies were a joy. they made us feel so welcome.
The receptionist organised a private walking tour of that part of the city, which wasnt cheap (Euro 130) but was excellent value as we saw many places you otherwise wouldnt see and we heard a lot about the history of Venice.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room or a lie-in, dont book a canal view as the rubbish barges can wake you early. We had room 403 and it suited us fine with a view of the rooftops.
