Reviewed 4 August 2014

Visited on 25th anniversary trip, hotel gave us free upgrade. Beautiful view of canal, gondolas going by just under window, music & song from gondolas very romantic. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, rooms serviced to perfection every day. Short stroll to St Mark's Square. Only regret was that we didn't stay longer!

We stayed for 3 days and had 2 adjacent rooms on the 1st floor. The location and the staff were great but the rooms were not. Rooms have AC but always smelled musty so we always turned it off and opened the windows, luckily the streets were quiet so we slept ok. Pillows and mattresses are thin, not very comfortable. Rooms are small and decor faded but we only slept there so no problem. We agree with others that the hotel doesn't meet 4 stars standard.

If there was a rating in Trip advisor between average and very good, probably I would have selected that. The hotel is close to the famous St Mark's square but far of from the train station and if you do not select the correct water route, your trip might take over 40 mins. Once reaching St Mark's boat dock, its still hard to find the hotel if you do not have a navigation system in hand and the hotel is located in one of those dark narrow alleys. The rooms are spacious and well decorated, so ambiance is not a problem for couples who wanted to spend a romantic time. Venice is cramped for space and so is the hotel lobby. The hotel has connections with one of the glass manufacturing factories in Murano Island so you can go there thanks to the complementary trip offer and unless you are a sheikh, from Royal family or wealthy businessman, forget the guilt of not able to buy any piece from the collection.

The Kette Hotel is ideally situated, strolling distance to St Marks Square. Staff helpful and pleasant. Breakfast enjoyable, lovely continental breakfast in pleasant surrounds staffed by efficient and polite people. Lovely shops and restaurants near by. We arrived from the airport by water taxi and departed by water taxi to the railway station, all of which was effortless to us travellers. The transfer were private ones organised here in Australia but were complimented by efficiency of porter at hotel. Rooms nicely serviced each day. Our room overlooked the little street which was lovely. Overall a great place in a lovely city

Room Tip: Try for a room that opens out onto the little street. I am not sure if there are ones that open look...

Our 4 days in Venice was a highlight on our 5 week holiday. The Kette Hotel was very clean and comfortable with a great breakfast. It was in a good location only minuets walk from the main square with many restaurants to choose from. It had its own landing for water taxis which was helpful, seeing we missed our transfer and had to make our own way to the hotel. I am especially fussy when it comes to bath rooms and I could not find fault with ours. We would certainly stay there again .

I can't say the hotel was terrible but standard at it's best. We had two rooms since we are a family of six and the rooms were clean and decent. The walls are paper thin and you could hear everyone in their rooms so if this bothers you, not the hotel for you. The hotel is clean and the staff is attentive.

Room Tip: Ask for a canal room

This was the first hotel in Italy that had a great air conditioning! It was so hot during or trip that this was a real relief! The location of the hotel was also great. Breakfast was what you'd expect, the shower was the biggest one we had during our trip.(meaning I could raise my arms to wash my hair!). Sadly, the bed was a real let down with pillows that were very flat. We could not find anything to do after dinner. Even asked a few bartenders if there was any night life and he said no. This was very unlike Greece or Rome.
