“Room With A Beautiful View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

Initially, the desk staff seemed a bit reserved, but then they were extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was gorgeous; it felt very traditionally Venetian, and we felt like we stepped back in time to relax in a posh room with a comfy bed, plush sofas and chairs, and lots of room. It felt like an apartment where we had space for all of our belongings as well as space to stretch and relax in between our outings.

The view was gorgeous; we overlooked the canals and part of the street where we could hear the strolling musicians strumming their instruments. The staff was very accommodating if we needed anything, and the location was great. We could walk to San Marcos Square, the restaurants, shops, everywhere!

The breakfast was fresh and delicious, and fueled us for our nonstop touring. I'd highly recommend this very classy and comfortable hotel!

Room Tip: Overlooking the canals.

An older Hotel with a lot of ambiance. The beds were so comfortable, made a great end to a very busy day of sightseeing. Rooms were clean and very quiet. The staff was pleasant and very accommodating.

Room Tip: No tips, our room was very quiet and we were on the 2nd floor facing the hotel front.

A nice hotel in a great location in Venice. It is located not too far from the train station so it is nice and convenient and easy to find. Very comfortable bed and spacious room. Decor was a little old fashioned, but still nice. There was no wifi, but the cafes across the canal have free wifi (plus nice food). Cocktail bar downstairs was nice.

Dear Guest,
thank you for your words of appreciation concening our Hotel.
I’m a bit surprised as we do have a wifi connection covering all the Hotel (many clients review do also mention it here).
I do Imagine that you probably had some issues with it and, in this case, I beg you to accept my sincere apologizes.
Kind regards

Handily placed near P.Roma (just over one bridge) in an area busy in daytime but quiet at night and very picturesque.Staff very friendly and rooms very clean
Beds are the best ever,,so comfy.We did not include breakfast in the package due to the cost and reviews.Nearby are bars offering orange juice ,croissant,bread,butter,jam and hot drink for 5 Euros each.Only negative was the local tourist tax added when you check out.I will use this hotel on my next visit for sure.

This hotel would leave a better impression if the concierge didn't have such an attitude. I was sorry I bothered them with anything. Also, the restaurant (where all the plants are) was full of mosquitoes and I was miserable after one meal. I hated going back but breakfast was included in my package so I ate quickly. The location is pretty good. Near to the train station and Grand Canal.

We stayed at the Hotel Papadopoli on a recommendation. Thanks for the tip Dr G. This was a great hotel. Fantastic location. Our balcony was positioned to see all the gondola rides going by and enjoy all the singing without the cost! Very nice room. Only draw back was I am a short person and had trouble getting into the bathtub. Very deep. The staff gave our party a great recommendation of a restaurant. GREAT RECOMMENDATION. Overall the hotel was a star 4.5.

The decor in this hotel is what I imagine an American tourist would expect the Renaissance period to look like but it's a very thin veil. I particularly liked the genuine rococo fridge in my room, tastefully (?) decorated in fine ormolu.

Other than the tacky decor though, I actually really enjoyed my stay here. It's very convenient for the Grand Canal and easy to get around but it's also tucked away up a little side canal so very quiet and peaceful. The staff were friendly and as attentive as you are going to get in Italy and breakfast was very good.

It's along way from the Piazza San Marco but that gives you a good excuse to use the vaporetto, the nearest stop for which is only a couple of minutes walk away. Speaking of walking, almost immediately you leave the hotel you are wandering through the beautiful old alleys and passages which give Venice its unique ambience.

So, if you can bear the tacky, pretend decor, you'll have a very nice stay here.
