“Is there a better place?”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

What an outstanding renovation work they have done. From arrival to departure, they will care to all your needs. They will have those special attentions and little gifts that make you feel like you are being pampered. There is no better place than the floating terrasse on the grand canal to enjoy the sun, a lunch, and aperitif, and escape the crowds at the end of a day of visits. Venice is an amazing place and museum city, but it gathers large crowds, and the Gritti will give you a wonderful hideout to settle and feel like you are a part of the city.

Have a wonderful stay

Italy is amazing but Venice is like another world... On the pictures everything is really amazing but when you get there you cannot turn off the smell from the canal. This was the worst problem I had while there.
Our Hotel was on a great location, staff was really nice and helpful... They recently renovated and they did a stunning job. The best thin in this hotel is the Venetian style where ever you look.
This is great place to stay.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review and for choosing the Gritti Palace for your recent Venetian sojourn. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed both hotel location as well as the services delivered.

Venice is really “another world” and of course, it has its positive and negative sides. The perception of the smell from the canals can be higher or lower, even imperceptible, being it of course a natural phenomenon.

Looking forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back soon, we remain with
Best Regards,

Paolo Lorenzoni

The Gritti has recently reopened after a major renovation and the rooms and public areas have been beautifully re-decorated and furnished in exquisite Venetian taste. The prime location, directly on the Grand Canal, is excellent. However with the smallest rooms going for north of EUR 1,200 at peak times (e.g., during the opening days of the Biennale), one would expect more. Our room, while beautifully decorated, was rather small with a view of the wall of the adjacent building. The staff is polite and professional as expected, but not particularly friendly with smiles seldom seen and zero personal interaction. Everything (except Wi-Fi) is "extra":, e.g.EUR 4.50 for a local phone call, EUR 22.00 for two coffees and juice, two free bottles of water for the first night only despite a stay of five nights, etc. is all a bit over the top. We got the sense that the hotel is used to catering only to big spenders who throw around "big bucks". We have stayed in dozens of luxury hotels over many years and we are accustomed to paying high prices, but we doubt that we will return to The Gritti on our next visit to Venice.

Dear Guest,

I thank you for your comments and your mixed feedback. Your constructive criticism helps us to improve our guest service.

I am most pleased to read that you consider our Gritti a beautiful hotel with a prime location and I hope you overall enjoyed your sojourn. At the same time, I regret to learn that your first stay at the Gritti Palace did not meet your expectations largely due to the room you reserved as well as to the price paid for the stay during the Biennale Vernissage.
Although understanding your point, I take the liberty to underline that the Vernissage of the Biennale is a unique event that occurs every two years which brings the world’s attention on to Venice and many visitors with the consequent very high demand for accommodations.

I am also sorry to read that you felt the staff not particularly friendly as we pride ourselves in delivering a discreet and personal service, which most of our guests seem to appreciate.

I will be pleased to welcome you back and have you revise your opinion and have the opportunity to change your emotions towards our Gritti Palace.

Always at your disposal, I remain, with
Best regards,

Paolo Lorenzoni

Just completed 1 Night @ The Gritti Palace Venice and was booked into a Sestriere Suite 5 days prior to arrival by utilizing a SNA, original reservation used C+P in a Deluxe Room. This is the best hotel I've stayed at in my life so far. The checkin process was perfect and the employee even let me preview 2 different rooms and let me choose which would be best. I ended up on the 4th floor with a side canal view. I opted for the breakfast as the Platinum amenity which was a full buffet at the restaurant right on the Grand Canal. They offer cooked to order options at no charge as well. The orange juice was the best I had during my trip in Europe. A bottle of red wine complementary was waiting in my suite along with bottles of water for no charge. The Acqua di Parma bath amenities were amazing! All members of the staff were extremely helpful. Highly recommend staying here!

This stunning hotel, best position in Venice in my opinion, is just the biggest treat..It really is like a rich jewel..a real feeling of Venice in its glory days. I think its a hotel that is particularly wonderful in Spring , Autumn and Winter..as the inside is so gorgeous.It needs it to be cold outside and misty and romantic .Though Im sure its equally fabulous in summer with its wonderful terrace onto the Grand Canal, and its sundeck and swimming pool upstairs...Its so glamorous inside and its been beautifully decorated and renovated.The staff,the flowers!! (STUNNING) the attention to detail everywhere, the starched tablecloths and napkins, and the food everything is superb.It also has an intimacy and cosiness which I love.Also the other guests are wonderful to look at..Venice at its most glamourous, in a luxurious old world way.

A lovely renovation has restored the hotel to its former silk and gilt glory, with a new pumping system that will hopefully protect it for years to come. We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms in high season (around 900 € per night) and, while it was small, it was comfortable and wonderfully decorated. The gritti enjoys a great location, a staff that understands they work at a magical place and a great bar on the grand canal. For a special weekend, it is definitely worth the price to experience a historic hotel that allows you to live in the spirit of the city, even for just a few nights.

We chose to stay at the Gritti Palace on a last minute trip to Venice and could not have imagined a better experience. Service, from check in, to room service to concierge, was excellent. All of the fine details from a fruit plate in our room upon arrival to the Bernardaud china used for food service to the Aqua di Parma bath products provided in the luxuriously appointed bathroom made our stay incredible.

We were upgraded to a higher level room which was very spacious and we can't praise enough the renovation the hotel has recently undergone as all the decor, textiles and furnishings are impeccable.

We can't wait to come back for a repeat stay!
