My wife and I stayed here in September 04. The location is great, near the heart of the city, obviously you arrive from the airport on a water taxi- there's no other way!
Rooms average size, pleasing bathrooms and the best thing of all, the breakfast view from the ground level restaurant overlooking the Grand Canal.
Brilliant!

We've just got back from a trip around Italy and France. We also got engaged in Venice so this city will always be special to us. This hotel was exceptional due to the staff and location. We stayed in a junior suite so it was pretty roomy for a European hotel room. The staff was friendly and helpful. They even warned us of the over charge on the private water taxi since it waited a few minutes for us. You cannot beat the location! Next to the shops and St. Mark's Square. All transportion right in front as well. I would definitely recommend it to visitors going to Venice for the first time since it seems like the old timers are unhappy with the renovation.

Things change. We all know that. But for the better? Not in the case of the Monaco and Grand Canal. I stayed there (as have many good friends) every year for 15 years, until the renovation. The two Gianlucas who worked in the cozy bar directly overlooking the Grand Canal always had your favorite drink waiting. Raffaelo was always at the piano. You could sit right in the window if you wished, for hours and watch the boats go by, including from the dining room for breakfast. (They responded to this by moving a bar to the back of the hotel. HUH?) No service was too much to ask the staff, but we regulars never asked for much! We always felt like we were just visiting a nice villa of friends. The reviewer who said the hotel has become designed for eurotrash resonates. A most attractive aspect of the Monaco in the past was that it was NOT a tourist hotel nor a did it host conferences. So you always had guests there to really have a quiet respite. Sometimes finding a few inches of water in the dining room at breakfast a couple of times--just put on your boots like the waiters did and keep eating!--was a small price to pay for truly being welcomed to an old-world hotel in which you became family after only 1 visit. But then came Bennetton. Big company buys small old-world hotel, tears it apart and ruins it. To be fair, they did have to do alot of shoring up and built a sort of huge bathtub under it in order to stop the aqua alta coming into the restaurant. It's an old story but a very sad one for all of the loyal patrons who came year after year like we did. And the stories on this site of poor and surly service break my heart. Unheard of in the past. The location is everything, which hasn't changed. A few steps from the airport vaporetto and Harry's. Time marches on and none of us who used to stay there are old fogies who resist change but this was a desecration. The Monaco retains only its name and perch near St. Mark's. It's gone really. But if you never stayed in the old Monaco then this one probably seems fine. But after one stay in the new one, all of us who were regular annual visitors have pretty much decamped to rented apartments in the area and just come for dinner. Quite honestly, if you want to spend this kind of money in a bigger hotel, just go over to the Gritti.

At the end of a trip to Italy, it was a pleasure to stay in this old hotel which has been refurbished in a modern style. The lobby area really is cool with glass ceiling The room we were in at the back of the hotel was quite cosy but we didn't mind as it was really nice. The location couldn't be better. Enjoy
