“Great comfort, service, and views”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

This is a wonderful and well-appointed nautically-themed hotel overlooking the main waterfront (and the massive yachts tied up there). Its location gives it a great view of Piazza San Marco, which is maybe eight minutes away by foot, while also making it a safe harbor from the Piazza's throngs. The staff, and Stefano in particular, is superb: they arranged a complimentary tour of Murano (including water taxis) at ten minutes notice, made dinner reservations for us, and directed us a good and close restaurant for lunch when we arrived with three hungry kids. We stayed in a family suite -- two connected rooms, one larger and one smaller -- and were very happy and comfortable there. The breakfast was also very good. A great hotel.

We enjoyed an amazing two nights at the Hotel Bucintoro. The rooms were truly beautiful and a great size for Europe, and Venice in particular. The location is on the quieter side of St. Mark's square but only a short walk away, providing a welcome retreat from the crowds during the day. The staff and service were excellent. All their advice was great and everyone was incredibly helpful for any requests we had.

Room Tip: We were lucky enough to receive the special suite on the 5th floor. It had an amazing private roof t...

We found this hotel on tripadvisor and are sooo glad that we did!! It is on the main Canal, but yet far enough away from all the craziness of the main tourist attractions. There is a beautiful park to the right of the hotel that we were able to jog through in the mornings and the view is just fabulous. The room was very nice and very clean and the staff were extremely helpful with any requests. Breakfast was excellent! There is not one bad thing that I can say about this hotel and I will certainly stay there again on my next visit to Venice! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Room Tip: Waterfront suite a must!

This hotel exceeded our expectations. The moment that we saw our room and then the view from our room, it took our breath away. It is in a great location that is very easy to find and to access from public transport. We really appreciated that after watching many tourists looking frazzled while they were lugging their suitcases down little alleys trying to find their hotels. The front desk staff are very friendly and charming. The breakfast was also excellent with lots of choices. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to others.

A simply wonderful hotel! Stefano & all the staff are fantastic, made us feel so welcome & special and couldn't do enough for us. We had suite 204 - get this room if you can as the dual aspect views are absolutely stunning. Very close to San Marco & vaporetto stops yet far enough away from the crowds. Breakfast & great coffee was a superb start to the day, concierge service was second to none, Spritz in the bar was one of the best in the city. We will be back to Venice and wouldn't think of staying at another hotel. Thank you so much for a fantastic stay and we hope to see you sooner rather than later. Ciao!!

Room Tip: Room 204! Corner view, dual aspect & stunning views of San Marco.

This is a nice hotel located just next to the water body. Hence view from the room is amazing. Room was very spacious, bathroom was also very big.
Hotel staff was very helpful, provided all the information we were looking for. Breakfast spread was also good.

Hotel Bucintoro is in the perfect location, 100 metres from the Arsenale station, 27 Euro's return to/from the airport. Close enough to San Marco to easily stroll down but just far enough away to escape the madness of the San Marco and water taxi stations.

Reception staff pleasant enough. Breakfast room very small but good continental breakfast selection and two very friendly ladies waiting on.

Standard rooms quite dark due to wood panelling but throw open the windows and take in the view and sounds of venice......only niggle was child busking with accordion sat directly outside hotel every night between 6-9pm playing the same one tune over and over and over and over and over.........really irritating if you want a rest after a long day sightseeing before heading out for the evening.

Room Tip: Obviously rooms on the corner are best but just looking out to the lagoon is breathtaking
