“Good well placed hotel.”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

This is a very well situated, comfortable hotel overlooking the lagoon, and about a 15 minute walk to San Marco. The vaporetto stops are almost right in front of the hotel.Though the furnishings are rather dated the bed was excellent, and the bathroom was in good working order. However in spite of the " free wifi" that they offer, we were lucky to be able to connect at all because the signal was very weak. So if that is important, then beware! Based on the one meal we had in the restaurant, we would not recommend you eat there, though the breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lagoon.

After a wedding party in Firenze we
Had 1 night in Venezia at Gabrielli.
Very good location, but that's all you get. After checkin we rested for few hours and the fire alarm went off and didn't stop for hours. We had to leave the hotel, it was evening and the sound was very annoying.
WIFI doesn't work at all asked at the reception how come we couldn't connect to Internet the answer was " something wrong with your room " and " how should I know!!!! ".
I'm used to travel and stay in hotels and Gabrielli was supposed
To be a treat.
Come morning breakfast Buffett was good asked for a cappuccino and arrived 20-30 minutes later, the mood if the waiter was not so good, no smile and no sorry for delay.
Bottom line this hotel is NOT a 4 star but a fair B&B over priced overall look is old and and dark

We travelled as a group of friends to Venice for 4 days. Hotel location was fantastic, beautiful roof-top terrace for enjoying sunsets in Venice with a spectacular view of the lagoon up to the Grand Canal. Bedrooms well appointed and beds comfortable. All staff in the hotel were very helpful and pleasant especially Beatrice on reception desk. Excellent buffet breakfast. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to all types of traveller.

OK the downside first. This is NOT a luxury palace like the Bauer or the Danieli. It may have been in that category when Kafka stayed there a century ago, but it's faded considerably since then. There are a few architectural details from the Venice Golden Age, but also some budget-driven compromises like the plywood panels in the salon where I am typing this review, or the garden out back that looks a little forlorn, at least now in mid March.

What the Gabrielli has is location, location, location, and if that aspect works for you then you may like it quite well. My room (528) is tiny -- former maid's quarters under the eaves -- but from the east facing window I can see the lagoon in one direction and the Arsenale neighborhood in the other. Quite pleasant to wake up to that! Furnshings are basic but hygiene is good. The buffet breakfast offers many choices, plus a morning view across the lagoon on San Giorgio, and the staff is polite.

This is the off season and my early-week room was deeply discounted, to under $100 per night. If you are at the right price point, then this hotel is a very good value.

The hotel is in an excellent location with beautiful views from our room and very close to the Arsenale boat station. Breakfast first class and we had one excellent buffet dinner, wine included. Front rooms can be a bit noisy, and the mattress was thin and hard - but it's the views you remember! We would certainly recommend the hotel as an ideal base to explore Venice, the islands and the Lido - all of which we did in our 5 day stay.

we booked two rooms for a long weekend. We had a nice room with a view over beautiful blue sea. everybody in the reception area was kind and helpful. The breakfast was one of the best I had in Europe, many alternatives with cheese, yoghurt, fruit and of course cappuccino. The location is perfect. It is a nice 10 minute walk to San Marco and you pass through Rialto bridge.
The bed was comfortable and clean. However, i should mention that there is quite a lot of noise coming from the street (room 108 and 109). I woke up several times at night. An earplug would be handy.

Room Tip: if you want quiet night sleep, it is better to choose room those are not overlooking the street, sea...
